Hello there, I’m Nelwin Uy, nice to meet you.
I began my career by way of being inspired by two former bosses to take up photography as a young graphic designer. Years later found a mentor to guide me as my passion grew, and it was from him that I bought my first camera. Started out shooting images with film – and I still do with a medium format camera.
Photography was my medium to see and experience the world, and it was in weddings that I truly fell in love with it and saw the richest colors. I’ve been a wedding photographer for 12 years now and continue to enjoy it.
I love working with couples and helping them discover their style, letting them sit comfortably with who they are. In weddings, I strive to capture real moments – scenes we might miss if we skipped a beat.
Inspiration is everywhere. Traveling to meet my unique couples has introduced me to new cultures and spectacular places – opening my eyes to different styles and approaches to framing celebrations.
My work has taken me around the globe, from North America, South America, Europe, Middle East, Asia (hello Japan, Malaysia, China, Indonesia, Brunei, Thailand, Vietnam & Singapore!), and to the country down under, Australia.
I always go out of my way to find the extraordinary from the ordinary. Every wedding, like the two people about to exchange their vows, are unique. Besides, what better way to see the world than by being in a new place, surrounded by happy people who are in love.
