"Happiness isn't something you experience; it's something you remember." so wrote pianist Oscar Levant, and photos are undoubtedly one of the best carriers of memory. I've been in photography since I was a kid, on a plastic film camera, I was so excited to see the result that I opened the filmback before development, so my first work turned out to be pure blank, it taught me that how important the patience is for photography, the patience for the best mood, the best composition and light, it's the best moment. I photographed my first wedding for my friends way back in 2006, they loved the photos and recommended me to their friends and it snowballed from there, in 2019 I've shot more than 300 weddings, I find the documentary photography fascinating, sometimes frustrating, other times rewarding but always very memorable. 
 
My approach is to feel and document the raw emotion of the day, create a relaxed atmosphere for my clients to live in the moment while also looking for movement in a creative and unobtrusive way when at all possible. My style includes bold and colorful photos that give you a sense of place with a mix of documented moments that will bring you back to the emotion of your day. Heavily photojournalism driven, I believe it is more important to tell your story as it unfolds naturally.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm based in Beijing, I'm a native. Yes, I chaege a travel fee for other city.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I started my profession in 2006.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My specialty is creative documentary photography, weaving moments into my images that are iconic symbols of the day.

Vincent was amazing and I highly recommend him! He was very professional, polite and gentle with the family, and knew how to work with the kids. It was a super hot day on the day of our shoot, and there were 7 of us, but he made us all feel at ease and we had fun shooting the photos. Vincent’s English is excellent both spoken and written. Great communication before, during, and after the shoot. Best of all, the photos are wonderful. Thank you so much for capturing our precious family time together while in Beijing away from home. I will truly cherish these wonderful memories you have given us! Read More Aloha

In dealing with the myriad moving parts of planning a wedding and the people you have to place absolute trust in to handle their part in the affair, the one standout person that me and my wife felt confident in was Vincent. The luxury of feeling like we didn’t have to worry about his ability to capture our special day was liberating in a way we didn’t fully realize until the day of. And the finished photos sealed our high opinion of Vincent. All of the beautiful moments and the beautiful hiccups he was there to document for us. A true professional with an eye for the shot and an uncanny Read More ability to be right where he needs to be, I couldn’t recommend Vincent more, and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again.

Vincent is a consummate professional. Given the multicultural nature of our wedding with members of the family from China, US and Venezuela and a very bespoke wedding plan tailored to my son and daughter-in-law’s eclectic taste, Vincent put everyone at ease. He was unobtrusive, yet keenly observant. He captured many spontaneous moments as well as the requisite formal shots. I also very much appreciated that Vincent is fluent in English and Chinese and could talk to all bridal party members from multiple continents. From the photos, I feel Vincent captured our personalities while telling a Read More beautiful story of my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding day.
