About Houng and what photography means to him.
I'm Houng Taing
A Melbourne based professional photographer, providing wedding/engagement photography, for those that prefer to keep things more intimate, elopement photography is also provided.
Along with weddings, portrait & event photography is also a service I provide.
Photography has always been a passion of mine ever since I photographed my first wedding. That feeling of seeing the couple celebrate their big day with their friends and family is something I hold dearly and appreciate.
Being trained by renowned photographer Jerry Ghionis, a leader in the wedding photography industry, led me to pursue a career in photography that would allow me to connect with individuals in ways I could never imagine.
My upbringing in a successful family restaurant has taught me to appreciate the importance of providing quality products and exceptional service. My previous experience as a medical researcher has also shown me that being organised, thorough and to work as a team are all crucial to achieving goals and expectations effectively.
Most importantly, my own personal experiences have led me to understand that knowing what is valuable and meaningful to you is the only way we can achieve what is perfect for you.
My ethos as a wedding, portrait & events photographer...
is to provide you with a photographic experience, to create and capture those candid moments on your special day, whether it is a big or small wedding ceremony (perhaps elopement?), a couples session (engagement sessions included), a family photo, or even a headshot.
I want to freeze those timeless emotions so that you can relive those special moments and provide a long-lasting legacy for your family and friends.
The love, appreciation and empathy I have for people and life, is what gives me my inspiration and drive to capture beautiful moments and encapsulate the essence and spirit of my subjects in the ways that could be described as engaging, natural, elegant and authentic.
There is nothing that makes me happier than to provide my clients with a personalised photographic experience. It certainly is amazing to see my clients receive their beautifully designed custom-made albums, that depict the truest representations of themselves in the form of artwork.
Along with your memories, your album and your photographs, they are one of your few precious heirlooms to allow you to relive, experience and cherish the moments you had with your family and loved ones, on the most beautiful days of your life.
My commitment to you as your photographer is to create an environment that is relaxing, fun and memorable. I will guide you through your wedding day, like a wedding planner. I will guide you through the process of a headshot or personalised branding to ensure you get your message gets across to your ideal client. I will guide you, so you can have fun with family and significant other as if I was friend. I will ensure that you are able to be comfortable and celebrate and enjoy those special moments, while making sure enough time is provided so enough photographs are captured for you.
