9th Place in top 30 wedding photographers for AGWPJA 3Qtr 2008 Contest

Received a message from Edmund saying that I won 3 prizes including 2nd place in Emotion category this afternoon while we are in Gemas Hotel preparing the slideshow for this morning tea ceremony.  It is really a nice and great surprise to me after a recent “series of unfortune events-handphone, car gear, car audio, laptop hardisk broken, out of order…..

  • 9th place in top 30 photographers in AGWPJA 3Qtr 2008 Contest
  • 2nd place in Emotion Category
  • 2nd place

    2nd place, Comments from Judges: This is just a nice clean image. The juxtaposition of the tears is a nice touch. A pure and simple powerful reflection of the big day. So nice to see what looks like a longer lens move to the core of the action.

  • 13th place in Ring Detailts Category
  • 13th place

    13th place, Judges Comments: Another one of those supersaturated (perhaps slightly overdone) images that keeps the eye moving right toward the rings themselves. There were numerous images of rings and flowers. Most of them were excellent. Some of them were really beautiful. There is a luscious quality of light and color that I couldn’t escape. The circular patterns of the flower mimicking the rings made for the right mix of elements.

    15th place: Comments from Judges: Here’s a photographer who knows how to react quickly and compose with feeling, drama and technical prowess at the same time.

Really want to express my appreciation and thanks to all who supported me for the past one year during my photography journey including my mentors, master, wedding photography partner and of course my family members…

About Edwin Tan


Yes, this is a dream to me, I daydream a lot and let me share with you a few of my dreams here. I always dream of creating a website to record every moments of my life and share with my kiddo when their grow up one day and also dream about carrying my cameras and travel around the world, see the world thru my eye,yes, I love travel, it is my ultimate dream to travel around the world, learning thru travel is the best dream I ever have. Dream is an initial point to me. It help me to look at what I really want in my life. As Malaysia Wedding Photographer with international wedding photography membership (WPJA, AGWPJA, WPPI & PPA), I started my photography passion at the end of year 2007. Like most of the beginners, I was purely having fun with my DSLR capturing my family members portraits and events. After attend the talk by one of the master wedding photographer, it change my whole world. I was so touched by the slideshow shown on the projector for the showcase of prewedding and church wedding, the touching moments, the dramatic angles, all these impact was so strong that it hit direct into my heart and awake my passion towards wedding photography. From there onwards, I have focus all my passion on wedding photography and never feel more satisfied when I capture the moments for couple which last for a life time. Whenever I imagine the couple looking back those photos captured by me in ten, fifteen years from now and think, "yeah, that was the moments" "look, how silly you was!" "oh, I cried when I first saw you walks down the aisle i", "yes, I remember what your dad told me that day when he placed your hand in my right hand from his arm after walks down the aisle".. all these keep my heart warm and keep me going on & on for this long path without a single regret or tiredness ...
