29th April: Kevin Then

Kevin Then from Malaysia, has multiple awards under his belt, including the prestigious Hasselblad Masters 2008. He specialises in pre-wedding and wedding day photography. Known for making his couples look like stars, Then explains, “A wedding photo shouldn’t be just traditional with the bride just standing around wearing a wedding gown. My style is to make it more dramatic, more romantic. Like a movie director, I want the picture a certain way, with everything perfect – the dress, veil, face, makeup, hairstyle. This picture will be with the couples their whole lives.”
