3 major international awards WPJA 2012 Q1 - ChuianFeng

I am very very surprised to this news too! My hardwork paid off!

3 major international awards from WPJA 2012 Q1 contest!

Thanks to all the couples whom have placed their trust in me, this season winnings are the most amazing I've ever bagged.

Every year WPJA hosts the largest wedding photography competitions in the world judged by panels of award-winning photojournalists. Membership in WPJA requires rigorous standards in technical skill, aesthetics and best business practices.

Here are the photos.
Coming in at 6th placing, under Lit Portrait category, is the coldest wedding photos I've ever shoot. This is also one of my dreams that came true! Thank you to Jianyong and Jacqueline for realizing my dream!

I love the judges comments - Wow!

I remember when i was shooting this shot, half of my body was in ice. The environment was in minus degree and with strong wind! Thanks to Kay for helping with the additional light too! It was really an incredible journey.

Next up, coming in at 4th placing, under Lit Portrait, crossing the road at Vietnam. Many thanks to Lucien and Liping for flying me to Vietnam. The slave flash for this shot is assisted by Bridal Makeup Artist Liren Neo
Judges Comments - Great use of color and composition to highlight the couple in the busy environment.

You have no idea how dangerous this shot was at. Anyone whom have been to Vietnam knows the zoooooming motorcycles on the roads!

Last but not least, a 2nd placing in getting ready! This is the first time my photo have been placed in the top3 placing. And Jeremy, thanks for letting me shoot you half-naked. By the way, you are doing the steaming iron the wrong way, your pants should be hang. :p
Judges comments - This is a candid, humorous, gem of a moment well seen and captured. Everything works in this photograph.

To add icing on the cake, this photo is now even on WPJA homepage!

All these awards couldn't be possible without all the wonderful couples and my trusted overseas working partners and assistants, Bridal Makeup Artist Liren Neo and Kay. Thank you to Yann, our wonderful guru host at Porjus for giving us tips on the northern lights sightings too!

All the adventures have come and gone. Would I ever go on another challenge for the next adventure?
Without doubt, and in a heartbeat. :)

Feeling very very very very blessed,

Wedding photos with northern lights (Aurora Borealis) Jan - March 2013

I have accomplished one of my wedding photography dream of having a wedding session with a couple lately with the incredible northern lights (Aurora Borealis) in March 2012. And, i think i had the honour of having the privilege of being one of the first in Asia wedding photography industry to do that. :)

Shooting the northern lights is not as easy as it seems, there are
1) the strong cold winds which everyone have to endure
2) total darkness of the environment.
3) chasing of the lights. They can appear anytime!
4) unfamiliarty of the terrain. You can sink into the ice anytime!
... and many more!

With that in mind, and with this recent experience, I have decided to open up another oppourtunity from Jan - Mar 2013 to more couples whom are willing to challenge themselves and to have very different wedding photos. According to Geophysical Institute researchers, 2013 has the highest chance of northern lights appearing from this 11 year cycle.

Visit now to make your dream come true!

Or, email or call 94561174 to fix the appointment of your lifetime.

Do note that shooting the northern lights requires alot of strong will power, couples will need to go thru an interview process.

Very very very very excited,

3 WPJA award winnings - ChuianFeng

On Christmas morning, i checked my email and got 3 christmas presents from WPJA!

3 of my photos were awarded placing in various categories among WPJA competition. Every year WPJA hosts the largest wedding photography competitions in the world judged by panels of award-winning photojournalists. Competitions are open only to WPJA members, are part of the association’s commitment to upholding the highest standards in wedding photojournalism.

Here are the print screen of the award winning photos. They were taken in HongKong Disneyland, Sydney and Kota Tinggi.

All the makeup is by Beauty Magic by Liren Neo

Shooting at Disneyland has always been one of my dreams! Its not easy when you are shooting in the rain. When we arrived, our luggage was also delayed for more than 48hours and had to buy all the equipment again in order to shoot/makeup. Thank you to Zexin and Huifeng for making one of my dreams came true! Its even sweeter that we managed to nail an award placing!

Was kinda shock in the morning when we started to shoot. Sydney Blue Mountain was totally fogged up! You cant even see 5m in front of you. Got to thank Liren for helping me with the slave flash lights in this photo!

Gavin and Perlyn wanted totally different photos from everyone else. So we trashed the dress at the waterfalls in kota tinggi! And thank you for all the yummy food along the way too! Looking forward to our next road trip soon!

Thank you everyone whom had placed their trust in me! Will definitely continue to strive harder for even more "shud shud" photos!

Very very very very excited,

1950 Turns 6!

It seems just like yesterday. 1950 Photography turns 6 this month! It has been an interesting year with it's ups and downs here.

One interesting step that we have taken is the formation of 'Wedding Services Singapore' ( with some of our good working partners in the wedding industry. In conjunction with the formation, we've held our first 'self organised' and successful wedding services showcase named 'iLove' in Orchid Country Club just a month ago.

Another subtle step we have taken is the effort to improve recognition on our beliefs in wedding photography...that is to have images that not only look pretty but are able to portray the personalities of the couples as well as the mood of the wedding. In short, we keep the images Real and Honest.

We are also fortunate to have more couples whose relationships with us blossomed into friendship. This is often a wedding photographer's wish to have our clients seeing us as beyond a service provider. We really appreciate that and no doubt, it makes a difference in various ways.

Once again, we'll like to thank all of you who have supported us, appreciated our work and given your constructive comments to our work. We will not come this far without all of that from you.

With this occasion, we'll like to announce 2 new promotions:
For Pre-wedding, we have a value-added package with Makeup Services by Liren Neo ( into all of our full day pre-wedding packages. Valid for signups before 15 September 2011.
For AD photography, there will be a waiver of $500 from our full wedding day package when you engage any of 1950's Photographer and Lighthouse's videographer. (

Email for more details!

Thank you so much once again! :)

ChuianFeng 31st Dec 2010 at Marina Mandarin Singapore with Jeremy (Children's Cancer Foundation)

Jeremy was diagnosed with Cancer and one of his wishes was to see fireworks. Marina Mandarin Singapore made Jeremy wish came true by hosting him in their top floor suite for the annual countdown fireworks display.

When most of us are ushering the year 2011 in celebration, I had this unique opportunity and am grateful to have had the opportunity to document the event and bring a moment of joy to Jeremy and his family.

I received a very sad news from my friend, Gian Heng this morning. Jeremy had passed away last week, ending his battle with Cancer.

When we spend so much time counting lost moments, we have also lost the chance to make every moment count.

Warmest Regards

Behind the Scenes

We've been procrastinating whether we should put this up or not. We think we look pretty 'ugly' while at work especially when we are squashing our left eyes while behind the viewfinders framing the shots. But what the heck, we've decided that it'll be an interesting addition to our website. So here it is, some videos of us working behind the scenes to get the wonderful wedding moments you've seen here.

Check them out on our main website at:
