Edwin started his journey of wedding photography since end of year 2007. It all started while photographing his children as a hobby. Realising that he had talent for photography, he attended a workshop on wedding photography. The workshop had a profound effect on him, filling with him great inspiration and emotion. This was when he realised his calling to go out and capture those special moments that last a lifetime!
Edwin is blessed with an uncanny ability to anticipate and adapt to changing moments of a live shoot. His relaxed and easy-going nature puts couples at ease which enables them to fully express themselves. Edwin is unobtrusive and allows the events to unfold, as they should whilst surreptitiously injecting some of his own direction. With a storyline crafted in his mind, Edwin goes out to find the deeply emotional moments that reflect the story of the day. Being the perfectionist that he is, Edwin believes that every minor detail is important – loving glances, smiles and meaningful moments always captured and no tears left unseen.

"Engaging Edwin Tan as my profesional photographer was one of my must-haves during my wedding preparation. Let’s just say I was willing to change my pre-wedding photoshoot and actual wedding day to accomodate his availability.
Having Edwin Tan as my photographer during my pre-wedding photoshoot in Kyoto was a breeze. This was despite the fact that I decided to do the photoshoot during the busiest weekend in Kyoto in the midst of the Sakura season.
Edwin was easy to work with and the epitome of professionalism. Crowded places was not a problem for him to get outstanding pictures. His ability to see the extraordinary in the ordinary means he never runs out of ideas and suggestions. My husband, never a fan of pre-wedding photo shoot until now, was convinced Edwin could make anyone look good posing even with just a pencil in an empty room.
My husband and I were informed by friends that posing during pre-wedding photos is no easy task. Some couples would succumb to restlessness and start losing patience with the photographer. But we had no such experiences with Edwin. He gave us clear instructions on how to pose and we reached an understanding between each other in a matter of minutes. We pose, he shoots. Picture perfect. It was that easy.
Engaging Edwin tan as my photographer is the best decisión.
Engaging Edwin Tan as the professional photographer is the top most priority in my wedding preparation. I actually checked Edwin’s availability before I set a date for my pre-wedding photoshoot & actual wedding day. Yes, I fixed the dates to accommodate Edwin’s calendar.
Edwin and he gave us many advise based on his past experience. My photoshoot is probably one of the most difficult ones as I went to Kyoto during the most peak season. But Edwin managed it well. He managed to see the extraordinary in the ordinary.
My husband who wasn’t keen on doing photoshooting actually enjoyed the whole pre-wedding shoot very much. Everyone is very impressed with the pictures.
A lot of people find that doing pre wedding photoshoot is very tiring and they do not want to do it again. But for me, I enjoyed every single moment of it. If I could, I would do photoshoot with Edwin over and over again.
Engaging Edwin as my photographer is the best decisión we made for our wedding. Thank you again Edwin for the great work!
"I worked with Edwin when he first started becoming a full time wedding photographer for my wedding in 2008. As a bit of a bridezilla, I was very particular about the photog I hired, to capture the "photo journalism" style of my special day, where the photog is still passionate about work, willing to explore different styles, angles, lightings and shots, unlike other jaded photogs who take the same shots every wedding.
Edwin was extremely professional, friendly and creative. My pictures were awesome and I've been so happy I kept recommending his service to every friend I know for their weddings. I've followed his career over the years and I still adore his work - and will not hesitate to work with him again for any future photography needs (pregnancy, baby, doggie, etc)." —Winnie
