What is Jo Yu style?
As you can see from the photographs above my work is characterized by capturing moments and situations where my couples and persons I photograph reveal their true and authentic self.
I am not interested in posing, but rather capture couples in the most natural way. From me, you will not get those all too common: Look-here-and-smile photographs.
I emphasize the emotions that transpire during a wedding day. I try to anticipate those fleeting moments when couples smile, laugh, cry or express whatever emotion they are feeling in that moment.
I would say this is what characterizes my approach to wedding photography.
Genuine & authentic
Over the years I have learned that every couple is different. Therefore, I approach every wedding with ‘a fresh pair of eyes’. Because what has worked during the last wedding, may not work at the next wedding.
Authenticity is of utmost importance for me. And I guess that is why you will not get from me standard, soulless wedding photographs. But a documentation of photographs that genuinely reflects your wedding day and your personalities.
And above all the bond between the two of you.
BALI is always part of your story
Another important element that I always incorporate in my photographs is: BALI. After all there is a reason why you have chosen our wonderful island as the destination for your wedding.
It can be one of the countless grandiose vistas that Bali has to offer or elements of the décor of your wedding or certain features of the venue where your wedding takes place.
There is always something to be found that will make your wedding photographs so genuinely BALI.
More than just the Bride & the Groom
Of course, any wedding is not just about the couple, but also about all those loved ones you have invited to celebrate your life’s most important day with you.
Because of that I treat your guests as equally important as you. And I always incorporate those moments where the bride interacts with her bride’s maids, her father, her mom or whoever…
Or the funny moments when the groom and his best men have no clue on how to put on that tie…
And and and… There are plenty of such moments to be found at your wedding. And often those photographs will become your most treasured ones.
Details and the tiny stuff
And last, but not least there are those important details such as your wedding dress, your shoes, the champagne, the thank you card, the wedding favors… and many other things which you will want to remember.
So I am always on the hunt for those impressions as well.
Thank you for looking!
I am glad that you stayed with my pictures until here. And I guess my photography has been resonating well with you. Otherwise, you would have moved on by now.
I hope you now take the next step and share some details about your wedding in Bali with me. And hopefully, I can be part of your wedding in Bali.
I promise you I will create a documentation of your wedding day that you will proudly show to family and friends. Let me be part of your story and give you photographs which you will cherish for a lifetime.
