We all know that there are certain photos that need to be taken. A photo of your ring? Check. A kissing photo? Check. A posed awkward hug that brings you back to your prom days? Check. But if you book Tobias Chu at SixSixty for your big day, expect a little quirkiness added to the mix. His contemporary approach to wedding photography has won over many a client. Each shot reads as a gorgeous finished moment in itself whilst still feeling like part of a much bigger love story. Don’t just take our word for it though; have a browse through his portfolio to witness the magic for yourself!
As a wedding photojournalist, Tanarak focuses on capturing the truth of an experience rather than artificially creating moments and poses in a cheap imitation. He takes the time to learn his client’s love stories in order to discover what makes each of them so unique.

Though primarily based in Hong Kong and San Francisco, Tanarak will shoot wherever in the world you decide to hold your ceremony.
