Tiffany's Maternity

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 0 comments
I was thrilled when a friend of mine, Bella, asked me to join her for a casual maternity photo shoot of Tiffany and Jevier. At first I was kinda nervous since both of them are actually quite famous! And to be honest, I'm not familiar with Indonesian celebrities. So, I didn't really know what kind of expectation they have and how to behave in front of them (on top of that, I was an hour late due to horror traffic). Luckily, the awkwardness crumbled in a split second as we introduced ourselves to each other. They are very friendly, charming, humble, and of course photogenic!

Nany + Vincent

Saturday, October 7, 2017 0 comments
Nany and Vincent's engagement shooting took place in Frankfurt just one day after Srishti and Rashu's (well, we rent a fisheye lens for the whole weekend, so we have to make use of it as much as possible). The shooting started earlier in order to capture the empty street in Taunusanlage area and avoid any car accident. Luckily, we were able to stroll around the main station and Alte Oper, which we couldn't manage the day earlier. Hence, even though we had a similar route and location, we were still able to get many different perspective and angle of Frankfurt.

Today, they tie the knot in Bad Homburg. Being thousand miles away, I'm so sad not being able to be there to celebrate their big day.

Happy Wedding Nany + Vincent!
May the years ahead be filled with lasting joy.

Lizzy Vol 4

Tuesday, April 11, 2017 1 comments
My best friend, Lisa, gathered her courage to open her own clothing line. It is her dream to own her own boutique and design women apparel. Her fourth collection consists of just a few new arrivals. So it's not worth it to book a studio and a professional model for this mini collection.

We had the photoshoot in a small cafe in Menteng (Central Jakarta) and started quite early to avoid disturbing other customers (of course we also asked permission from the cafe owner to have a photoshoot there). The place is perfect for casual photoshoot and it provides a lot of natural light. Moreover, the interior's color palette fits perfectly with the color of the new attires.

Also, meet Jady, her 6yo daughter who didn't want to be missed. One day, she can be a super model, or a fashion blogger, or a doctor, or a scientist, even a president... But right now, she just enjoys being a beloved daughter wearing a matching outfit and let her mother-daughter-moment being captured.

Srishti + Rashu -- the wedding --

Tuesday, January 10, 2017 0 comments
There is always a first time for everything: our first visit to India and attending an Indian wedding. Due to our very short stay, we skipped many rituals during the day, so we could have a little tour in New Delhi and Agra. Luckily, we had enough energy to party past midnight for two days straight.

On the first day, we celebrated Sangeet, which is a celebration of the union of not only the couple, but also both families. It was full of music and dance, mostly dance performances by the couple, families, and guests (so, Indians really love to dance, not only in Bollywood movies, but also in real life!). Even though the party was also very colorful, we decided to capture the moments in black and white as a contrast to the pictures of the wedding party.

On the second day, there were so much excitement during the wedding celebration. First, the groom made a flashy entrance by riding a horse to the venue (not so sure if it was his idea or it was actually part of the tradition). Then the bride's sisters/family welcomed the groom at the entrance, but before letting him in, the groom had to made some bargaining. Too bad that we couldn't understand most part of the deals (which definitely must be funny since they laughed so hard during the process).

A couple of hours later, after a few drinks and lots of dances, we realized that the bride and the groom weren't a husband and a wife yet; not until the last ceremony at the end of the wedding celebration. Sadly, we couldn't stay for the most important ceremony since we had to catch our flight early in the morning.

Thank you Srishti+Rashu for sharing us these unforgettable moments. Best wishes on your wonderful journey together and may the years be filled with lasting joy.

Srishti + Rashu

Wednesday, November 16, 2016 0 comments
Srishti is one of my closest friends in university. Not long after graduation, she told me that she's getting married in November. At the same time, I also had to tell her about leaving Germany at the end of August. So, we decided to have a little FUN project during my last summer in Frankfurt, just a few weeks before leaving.

We spent the whole Saturday walking around Frankfurt. Some friends also joined us during the shooting as a makeup artist/stylist or an assistant. We also rent a fish eye lens and had fun seeing the world through it (though I still cannot decide whether I should buy it or not). Overall, we had a great time and I smiled a lot as I did the post processing while remembering funny little things.

Their engagement and wedding ceremony will be held in New Delhi this weekend. It'll be my first time visiting India (and attending Indian wedding) and India is on my bucket list for a very long time (although it'll be a very short visit). I'm looking forward to be there and capture their special moment.

Jessica's Motherhood

Thursday, December 10, 2015 1 comments
I still remember how excited I was and how my mom screamed joyfully as we heard the good news. My parents are officially a grandpa and grandma, and I am a very proud aunty! The maternity photoshoot took place at their apartment in Mannheim. As usual, since I was (and still am) not so confident in using any flash, I tried my best to use natural light available.

And soon enough, Little Edward came into our world and stole our heart.
