2017 WEDDINGS | A YEAR IN REVIEW - Joe Ng

2018-04-24

Here’s a little look back at my wedding photography in 2017.


I simply looked back through everything I had photographed in wedding assignments last year and selected some of my favourite images. It might not the ones that I want to attract every bride and groom out there to my photography but it is the images that best represent the way I work and what I look for on a wedding day. Some of them might not technically perfect, that’s for sure. However, for me, it just really emphasizes what my style is all about. There is a huge amount of happiness, emotion, love, tenderness…..all of that, in those images.


For me weddings are always about people and not places. Over the years, I have been working as a photojournalist and developing my ‘style’ on how to tell a story. I photograph each wedding day in a reportage/documentary style, which means that I'm not focused on directing the day but on capturing it in the best way possible as it unfolds. I believe that every wedding is a unique story. I focus on capturing the special moments as they occur in order to translate the emotions, reactions, and their "story" into beautiful images.


I worked with some great couples and photographed so many different types of wedding from small, home-grown affairs with a few family & friends through to enormous weddings in very large venues and everything in between.


Anyway – here’s my look back at 2017.
