A fiery passion for photography, boundless energy, and a keen eye for detail are qualities that make Ken Lam the ideal wedding photographer.
Ken’s unique style is in his ability to capture naturalness of delicate emotions and intimate moments. He believes that no two weddings are the same, but, ultimately the end results are the same – that is, a portrayal of beauty, love and happiness through his photography.
As Ken has learned over the years, the perfect image is not just merely taking a picture, but also to finish it beautifully with intricate digital techniques. This philosophy has indeed been recognised in 2009, when Ken was awarded the coveted Kodak UK Wedding Photographer of the Year 2009.
Ken has also earned himself the membership with the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) and the Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (AGWPJA), international photography associations that represents the most discriminating talent around the world technically, creatively and visually. Less than 5% of the world’s photographers qualify for this membership with the WPJA and AGWPJA. This serves as a recognition to his talent and professionalism. This membership also demonstrates his ability as a true Fine Art wedding photojournalist and his distinctly artistic vision towards wedding photography.
He is also the only qualified member of the Fine Art Wedding Association: AGWPJA, for the Tyne and Wear region in England.
With great passion in photography, comes a persistent craving to improve his craft, Ken attends intensive photography workshops for new inspirations, techniques and ideas. This year, Ken was trained by the world-class master wedding photographer, Yervant in Italy.
Photojournalism (also known as Reportage Photography)
This is his preferred style of wedding photography – a candid, documentary and unobtrusive approach. Capturing human emotions in its most natural form.
Why Ken enjoys Wedding Photography?
The whole setting of a wedding; the beautifully-dressed people arriving at the church, the nervous anticipation of the bride waiting, the anxious arrival of the sometimes-late bride, the spiritual ceremony, the crying mother… and, the crying father, the laughter and roaring. The love in the air. This is what he looks forward to at every wedding, for every moment is precious, moments worth capturing. For that moment only lasts for a second.
