Today, I am grateful to do what I love while also being accompanied and supported by my wonderful girlfriend as my assistant. Working as a couple in photography is fun, we both love what we do and connecting with our worldwide clientele is an enriching experience.
Bonnie is a native from Hong Kong, speaks Mandarin, Cantonese and English. She is most helpful in demonstrating poses, assisting with the clients attire as well as handing light when required. She also has an excellent eye for the small details that may get lost while looking through the lens!
We are based in Bora Bora, French Polynesia (a tiny dot in the middle of the South Pacific) - We will travel to Hong Kong, the US and Europe 1-3 times a year and will work on providing a quote.
I have been established as a photographer in Bora Bora since 2013. While weddings here are different, typically more symbolic with only the couple; we are blessed to have great scenery and the option to do photos in the water. A great portion of our work also involves more casual, honeymoon type shooting and sometime in the water with the wild life.
We like to not be intrusive, while we will coach couples thru some poses and scenes; we enjoy staying in the background and capture the emotions on moments - perhaps we should say on the photojournalistic side?
Wedding here are quote different and short, something for the couple to seal their vow - Our packages start at $450. We will also travel from time to time to the US and will work on providing a quote.
We do not have a studio, most of our photography is done at the resorts in Bora Bora & outdoor. Yes, we do have skype stephan.debelle as well as WhatsApp & Wechat - We also have a local US number.
I do not have a degree in in Arts or anything relating to photography. I started at a young age learning from a father who was a photographer and re-toucher - Time of the films, labs & red rooms developing essentially B&W images.
We work as a couple an love what we do, we enjoy meeting clients from all over the word and all horizon. Bonnie is an avid traveler and we do aim to travel more and join leisure and work. On our spare time, we enjoy snorkeling & some beach time as well as relaxing on a secluded island. From a photography perspective, we do enjoy a great deal photography in the water with the sharks and have created a tour for clients who are not faint of heart and capture unique images amongst the sharks.
On occasion, we have photographers reaching out to us to assist them get to the best spots - We enjoy meeting colleagues so don't be shy and reach out if you are ever in the area:-)
