Andy Lim - Capturing the Emotion in your Wedding Pictures


The word "photojournalism" has been mentioned again and again in the photography arena but what is it really? Take a look at the pictures below and you can immediately make a story out of every action, emotion on their faces and so on. I was amazed by how Andy Lim caught the photo-journalistic moment at just the right time.

When asked how did he do it so amazingly as things happen rather fast during weddings, he says he strives to capture real moments through skill, anticipation and experience. He believes this is the unique strength of Emotion in Pictures. This cannot be fixed in Photoshop, because it needs to be captured at the right time, with the right expression, and the right lighting. The combination of all these factors requires a lot of skill to pull off. Their experience in multi-cultural weddings enables them to anticipate when the right moment will happen, and be ready for it. Have a look at their slideshows (http://vimeo.com/andylim/videos) and pictures (www.emotioninpictures.com), the expressions (laughter, joy, quiet bliss) are all real. They did not influence or incite those expressions, but rather they were ready to capture them when they do happen.

Compared to other PGs who carry out heavy photo editing, Andy does very minimal post-processing to his clients' wedding day pictures. This is a matter of principal, as he prefers the pictures to be as real as possible, reflecting the true mood and ambiance of that special day. For portraiture, post-processing is used to create the right mood, and also this is where he does choreograph the couples as in how to pose. But never excessively so. While his style may not suit everyone, those who appreciate this method will be amused by his talent in bringing out real emotion by pure photography skill and experience.

Having been in the industry for 7 years, Andy Lim is no stranger to the wedding photography community. He thinks new knowledge and skills are good to know, but they do not affect Emotion in Pictures' core approach: To shoot faithfully, reproducing those precious moments as truthfully as possible. Andy believes that the quality of his work is appreciated by his target clientele who value real wedding pictures and not overly influenced by the presence of the photographer.

He chooses not to participate in any professional photography certification bodies. Instead of following the crowd, Andy chooses to stay true to his beliefs, and it has been proven effective. I find him to be passionate about his profession and very detail oriented. He will definitely work out the specific requirements with his clients to achieve the desired result.

  6. We engaged Andy for our wedding ceremonies last year because we felt comfortable and relaxed when dealing with his professional approach. We placed our trust in him and were confident in the results. The photographs turned out fantastic, beyond our wildest expectations. He has a quietly confident style that is not disruptive to the event, and managed to capture the emotional moments, portraits and candid shots that we like. He is very calm in his setup and dealing with people, as well as gifted with a fantastic eye. Our families love the photobooks too! Terence & Lina.

  7. Andy was highly recommended to us via a friend and we decided to engage Andy because of the confidence he was able to give us and also his impressive portfolio. During the wedding, his style was non-intrusive which was great for us as we are able to enjoy the event naturally. His photos turn out to be great! Emotions well captured in their natural state! and also the slide show that is able to summarize the whole event perfectly. Thanks Andy once again. Love, Jian Tern + Jill

  8. We felt very comfortable with Andy from the start and took an instant liking to his down-to-earth personality as well as his calm, warm and friendly demeanor. Of all our correspondences with different wedding vendors, corresponding with Andy was the most pleasant and stress-free. He was very prompt, detailed and very clear in all his emails, something we appreciated very much especially since Sonia was overseas throughout the whole wedding planning process.

    The portrait sessions with Andy went beyond our expectations. Being both camera-shy people, it could have turned out a disaster, especially if asked to pose in ways that were out of our personalities.But Andy put us at complete ease - we felt we could be ourselves and it felt natural to be in front of the cameras. We were so pleased with the portraits; and the background colors and lighting were simply beautiful. Some friends thought we had gone overseas for the shoot when it was just a very common location.

    The actual day photos were also very beautiful. Andy was very professional and completely non-intrusive, freeing us and our guests to flow with every emotion instead of being harassed by the presence of a camera in our faces all the time. He never drew attention to himself and most times we never could tell where he was at. But he was totally present and on the job, capturing the emotion of the event, those special moments, little antics, hearty laughters and endearing hugs and brought all that together into a beautiful story with a lot of depth. Friends said the photos were beautiful and some even teared while watching the slideshow.

    Having Andy as our wedding photographer was nothing less than a blessing and privilege, and was probably one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We would heartily and readily recommend Andy and his work; for such talent and creativity, his packages are well worth the investment. Thanks so much for everything, Andy, and for giving us beautiful memories of our special day.

    Ben & Sonia

    As everyone would agree, photos are one of the many (if not the most important) criteria in defining a memorable wedding. Andy and his teams indeed make sure they had it all covered and under control. So much so that we can concentrate on other hectic preparation and be confident that our photos will turn out to be great. And much to our surprise, it wasn't just great, It was perfect. All the photos were stunning, naturally. Even if we were exhausted during most of the shots, Andy and his teams manage to capture the most beautiful essence of the whole endure. When we review every photos taken, we are mesmerize and grateful that we had a wonderful wedding, and that was shown exactly in those photos. Thanks to Andy, the most special day in our life is indeed, Special.
