About us, Binh Trinh and Lin Zhao, and our photographic journey
Wedding and Portrait photography is our passion, which started in 2006. Without boring you about our whole life story, it seems that photography discovered us, rather than the other way round. After finishing my PhD in food engineering (rheological study of time dependent fluids, if you must know), I unexpectedly landed my first wedding job, a massive two days cambodian wedding, 6500 photos later, I quickly discovered my hidden skills and talent in photography and I have pursued it ever since. At that first wedding, I captured some stunning photographs which immediately won me awards at the New Zealand Iris competition as well as several other, it also allowed me to gain my professional qualification with the NZ Institute of Professional Photography (NZIPP). Since then, I have continued to learn and grow as an artist, and in the process accumulated over 300 wedding and portrait photography awards worldwide. Truthfully I do sometimes wonder if the creative juice would run out. But I guess, as long as I love photography, which I sincerely hope will be always, my passion to grow, explore and become better will never end.
It is also amazing to have my lovely wife, Lin, working with me on photography. You could say photography discovered her too, through meeting me. She has also enjoyed tremendous success with her photography and won awards in US and Australia, as well as here in New Zealand.
Lin and I travel a lot for our photography. We love our wedding clients and always enjoy going to new places and capturing those magic moments wherever they maybe. We have photographed weddings from Palmerston North to Wellington, Napier to New Plymouth, Auckland, Australia, China and even Barbados.
Some other un-interesting facts about me,
- I have done over 100 weddings worldwide, from New Zealand to Australia, from China to Barbados
- I have represented New Zealand in inline hockey. One of the proudest moment of my life was wearing the silver fern and singing to the national anthem
- I write music as well. Such a wonderful hobby to relax.
- We have helped to raise and given away close to $20,000 in products and services for charities and non-profit work
