Tokyo + Shirakawago . Celebrating autumn engagement of Terry + Zoey

It's been numerous times in Japan for the assignments. We had a shoot in Tokyo as well while we transit, yet it's a first time at Shirakawa for engagement portrait assignment. Shirakawa-Go ( 白川郷 "White River Old-District" ) is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites built in the middle of 19th century located in northwest part of Gifu Perfection, central of Japan.

As we had the shoot during the end of autumn, there' re still some red maple leaf left but less than earlier. We took 4.5 hours to completed the shoot including make-up and styling, ended it with the one night stay at traditional Wada house ( Gassho-Zukuri ).

Awe-inspiring experienced. Thanks Vanessa, Terry and Zoey !

Seoul + Jeju Island . Celebrating autumn engagement of Steve + Chloe

「非一般感覺的婚紗照」

這簡單的詞就是我對 Kurt Ahs 所拍出來婚紗照的感覺。

初始本來打算找傳統婚紗攝影公司來拍攝我們的婚紗照,可是機緣巧合朋友介紹之下讓我們碰見了 Kurt Ahs 的專業作品,他的作品很明顯帶有非一般感覺又有獨特風格的婚紗照,新郎新娘穿著很一般很簡單的禮服可是卻能拍出一幅又一幅很有感覺的照片。

韓國之旅咱們一夥都是第一次拜訪,初始我都會擔心在人生路不熟的情況下要如何拍出好的照片呢?原來我們的擔心是多餘的,這就是 Kurt 的強項,他總是有辦法在陌生的地方邊走邊拍的情況下找出恰當和適當的地方時刻拍出令人稱職完美的照片。

他令人稱讚的地方還有在攝氏十度以下加上穿著沒什麼保暖的情況下我們這對新人其實都顯得特別累,可是他就有辦法把我們的笑容拍的特別燦爛和自然。

在拍攝的時候我們都會覺得「這樣的角度拍好看嚒?」「這樣的地方有什麼特別」「這樣的笑容好像很怪」之類種種的問題在我們的腦海徘徊。可是當他遞上給我們看效果時我們都會有那種很WOW的感覺!

整個拍攝過程我們都很樂在其中,當我們感覺很累很冷的時候他總有辦法讓我們笑起來, 多謝 !

Admirable chapter in Bali . Celebrating engagement of Jason + Mel

We take our pre-wedding photo as a photojournalism of our 6 years relationship as well as a celebration of stepping into a new chapter of life. We didn’t have any idea where to go for photo-shooting but we both were determined to have Kurt Ahs as our pre-wedding photographer.

He is good in revealing the intimacy and capturing the snippet of loving between the couple. You do not need to have flattering gown or perfect face, as he could always find the best angle of you, creating a flawless and ever-lasting memory.
We enjoyed the shooting with Kurt, he was really friendly and have a sense of humor that made the whole shooting process relax and joyous.

The outcomes? I am sure I do not need to say much of it, everyone was speaking highly of it, we love it and proudly to have such a wonderful pre-wedding photos.

Tokyo + Hokkaido . Celebrating winter engagement of Jin Han + Fan Lee

In the silence of Hokkaido, there is romance

A journey with Kurt Ahs

“Hokkaido, the northernmost – and least developed – of Japan’s four main islands is one of the country’s last wild places. I have found Hokkaido to be particularly intriguing – gently seductive, dangerously wild and hopeless romantic. This is where Fan Lee and I had our pre-wedding photography, and our endless romance reflected by Kurt Ahs’s inspiration that he has found there.

Till then, Kurt Ahs is one of the few Asian photographers I knew (probably the only and one in Malaysia) who extending overseas photo shoot to a winter Hokkaido. And, he did twice! We were both quite nervous about being photographed under such an extreme climate just in between -20°C to -34°C, with only thin gown and suit. Teeth chattered, bodies shivered, we had tendencies to either pull rictus grins or look away whenever a camera was being pointed at us. We were struggled to open our eyes because of merciless iced wind ..

Indeed, we invested to a photographer and locations that given us incredible returns. Kurt Ahs was brilliant at being very professional but unobtrusive. The result is a beautiful collection of photographs and seeing the photos makes us feel like we’re re-living the day all over again! We were both really impressed and grateful for how hard he worked especially under the extreme cold weather and the deliverables are above what we would have expected.”

Santorini Greece Island . Celebrating summer engagement of Kay Wee + Lynette

Every once in awhile, we see something that really gets to us. It’s tremendous awesomeand maybe a little bit of envy. But still, it’s a whole lot of beauty, at such gorgeous destinations, that made us want to wrap ourselves in it for the day.

And how’s this for romantic?! A stunning bride and groom, the oh-so-lovely streets of Santorini + Venice, and layers upon layers of flowy goodness in the form of LaBelle Couture gowns that will take your breath away. This captivating Europe elopement is all about the sweet love and with "Perhapslifemoments by Kurt Ahs" filling the gallery with image after image of wedding bliss, trust us, there’s not a single moment that isn’t downright fabulous.

So, gorgeous destinations + beautiful images + “We’re on vacation!” vibe = a great mix ! 

“We chanced upon the photographer while surfing the net for overseas photographers. What drew us to him was his naturalistic style and seemingly minimal editing. Yet he is still able to churn out lovely pictures that say a thousand words.

The overseas photo shoot was definitely worth paying for and it was a trip of our lifetime. From lugging and stuffing all those heavy gowns which we rented from LaBelle Couture to waking up in the wee hours of the morning just to do my own hair do and make up (that’s why you realize it’s not so ‘professionally’ done… ha… as it was done by me myself =p). We had a great experience! And to top it off, it was not only 1 location, but 2… we flew from Santorini to Venice for our second shoot.”

Queenstown New Zealand . Celebrating autumn engagement of Carman + Zoie

"It was by sheer fate that i happened to see Kurt Ahs's artwork via Facebook.

Instantly, i knew i wanted him to be my photographer. 

His style of photography, the way he was able to capture the natural moment of romance attracted me right away. from the start i knew i never wanted a bridal photo-shoot looking straight into the camera smiling. I mean, every photographer could do that. it was the way he was able to capture the right moment against the most beautiful backdrop which i knew i did the absolute right decision in engaging Kurt. in fact, I'm a little camera shy, but Kurt was very patient & experience to guide us with our posture and choosing the ideal background. It may not seemed difficult, but it the goods eyes of the photographer does make the difference.

After receiving our photos, many of our friends commended on it! The best choice I've made!" Thanks Kurt !
