Kevin Then

Kevin Then from Malaysia, has multiple awards under his belt, including the prestigious Hasselblad Masters 2008. He specialises in pre-wedding and wedding day photography. Known for making his couples look like stars, Then explains, “A wedding photo shouldn’t be just traditional with the bride just standing around wearing a wedding gown. My style is to make it more dramatic, more romantic. Like a movie director, I want the picture a certain way, with everything perfect – the dress, veil, face, makeup, hairstyle. This picture will be with the couples their whole lives.” Learn more about Kevin Thein.

Sails Chong
Sails Chong is China’s top wedding photographer and a Hasselblad ambassador. Coming from an academic background of Japanese Studies and Fine Arts, he is famous for his wedding vogue photography where he creates surrealistic imagery of the modern bride set against backdrop of visually stunning Chinese aesthetics or breathtaking landscape.    Learn more about Sails Chong.

He is based in Kuala Lumpur but works internationally, specialising in watches, location photography and corporate reportage. He graduated from Oxford University at 16, left a senior post in the world of private equity and strategy to shoot the things he’s passionate about, because he believes that life’s too short to do something you don’t enjoy, and a deeper understanding of one’s subject matter results in unique images.
