Bangkok wedding photography by Thanarat Chiraskamin of Thailand

As a photographer, I always look for genuine moments that tell stories. The moments that reflect feelings or how the subjects I am working on are connected with one another, or with others are the main reason for me to press the shutter. Mostly, not for how they look. Normally I don't direct my clients what to do. Basically it is just me be there seeing how the event or the day unfolds, find its natural beauty and capture the selected moments from my perspective. That is my style of photography. Photography to me is a visual language. A photograph is like a massage expressing our thoughts and feelings. I prefer taking pictures that tell stories, pictures that reflect not just how do we look at a particular moment but how we feel, what we think and how do we connect with each other. I found that a photograph, well captured, could be very powerful. It reinforces our memory without having to describe a situation in words. As a father of two. I found documentary photography is the best way to capture pictures of my family. I believe that the best smiles are those we are not forced to. Although it takes a lot of effort and anticipation to capture the moment with this photography style, the outcomes are authentic and much more meaningful. [Bangkok Wedding Photographer]

London documentary wedding photographer -  Chaiyasith Junjuerdee, of England

I fell in love with the moments I saw through my lens…this is the reason that makes me become a visual storyteller. Back to the very first step, my shooting journey has begun with techniques and shooting tips like everyone who loves taking photos. Practices…trainings…lessons…are my daily life since I was a student of architecture and design. My shooting passion also drove me to live and learn in London which gives me opportunities to explore the perspective of my lens. Step by step throughout the journey in London, I got a chance to work with the leading professional photographer of wedding photojournalist of the UK. My chance also wide opened for the fashion shoot. It’s come with opportunities which let me explore more on the photography road map to work with leading magazines and do advertising photoshoot for the famous brands in various industries. During the time, I also had chances to do portrait photography for individuals, couples, families, friends. I’ve learned a lot more about how to capture the very touchy-feely moments from portrait shooting. I am still learning from every shot that I take to continue my visual storytelling journey. For me, all chances were not just a chance, they were significant experiences that have made me believe that a photographer is an engaged storyteller who has a trained, creative, and talented eye to see a photographic opportunity and make a decision for the moment. With the strong feeling and belief that every moment is precious and perfect in itself, I wish I will put myself more engaged in demonstrating the moments like creating genuine art…to tell the story from time to time Today, it’s more than 10 years of shooting experience, there is ONE THING that I’ve found. This ONE THING has never changed, and this ONE THING makes me believe in what I do and make me be who I am. This ONE THING is THE TRUE MOMENT. It is real. It happens only once. It stays forever. Therefore, for me, a perfect photo is a capture of the TRUE MOMENT which will keep and tell the story. TRUE MOMENT is my inspiration for shooting every single photo. It’s not just a shooting style…it’s beyond a signature…it is my honest to capture the once in a lifetime moment that I fell in love since the beginning and I will continue my journey as a man who loves capturing the moments.

We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions.

So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way.

This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more

After the wedding date was set, we’d been looking for the professionals that could make the ‘once in a life time’ ceremony most memorable. We both gave importance to the photographer as we needed the natural looking portraits that groom and bride don’t need to overact (and of course this would come out from the skillful photographer) . Your Portfolio reviews impressed us and that was without hesitation to contact and decided right away to use your service since our first talk. Woodyalens is the real professional that delivered best service and photography. Thank you very much for taking beautiful snapshots of our most important day.

I’m always obsessed with having good photos on my special occasion because a single photo can tell a thousand words and always bring back good old memories every time we look at it. Thus, I chose you to picture my wedding because your work has shown me that you tell good story through pictures. And yes, I made the right decision. Every time I look at my wedding pictures now, I can still feel the day because all the emotions and stories were pictured perfectly. I can recall all the smiles, happiness, romance on my big day. Moreover, what I like most is that I can be myself all the time and you just find the right time, right place, right angles to photo me. That’s make things went on smoothly and naturally so that I really have a beautiful ‘story-telling photo essay’ of my wedding days. Thanks so much for making my memories live forever in the pictures.
