Jo-Yu-film look-Wedding-Photographer


Ladies, I am very excited to present to you an outstanding new local Bali wedding photographer: Jo Yu. He is the latest member of the SOCIETY OF BALI WEDDING PROFESSIONALS. Finally, a female photographer in Bali who offers this much-coveted classic, film-look style.


Jo Yu skillfully creates wedding photographs in film photography style!

And not only does she create pictures that look as if they were shot with film, but she also uses the similar equipment which great photographers of the classic analog film area have used.


Pictures that touch the soul…

On her website, Jo Yu film look photographer, uses the slogan: ‘…pictures that touch the soul’. And indeed I was touched when for the first time I reviewed Jo’s fantastic work. Her pictures have a certain something that is hard to describe, but easy to fall in love with once you have seen it.


Not your average ‘Spray & Pray’ photographer…

What am I talking about ? ‘Spray & pray’ is an expression used to refer to the method of photographing as many as possible photographs and then praying some will turn out good.

And this way of photographing is all too common among Bali’s countless wanna-be photographers.

Jo is not one of them. Looking at her photographs one can see he seeks out the most favorable angles and skillfully plays with the light. She is a true master of her craft.

Not one of Bali’s countless boys with a camera around the neck.


So who is Jo Yu for (and for whom not) ?…

Not every bride likes her wedding photographs in digital perfection.

It’s all over the Internet and on top international wedding and bridal websites. The trend back to film look photography.

Less saturated colors, slightly tinted photographs, photographs with a grainy structure - pictures with a soul.

If this style is what you are looking for then Jo Yu film look photographer is your best choice for you.

Whereas if you like tack-sharp images with strong and vivid colors then Jo’s work is definitely not for you.


Classic & timeless photography…

Jo has studied architecture and photography. And she was the last generation of photographers who still got their hands wet in the darkroom. She was privileged to learn the classic way of creating photographs on film.

Jo is a quiet person. A keen observer. And she definitely has the eye for details, emotions and candid moments. All the traits you would want in your wedding photographer.

Jo is also not the right photographer if you want your photos two, three days after the wedding. Because Jo takes time to edit to achieve this classic film look. So you’ll have to be a bit patient. But I assure you it will be worth the wait.


Surprisingly affordable…

And now comes the part which will sound like music to your ears. Jo Yu’s film look photographer is surprisingly affordable. Considering the amount of work that goes into editing the photos she is a real bargain, actually…

‘Nuff of me rambling on… The prove is in the pudding or so they say. So, in the following I leave you with some of those wonderful images that Jo creates:

    Jo is indeed a very talented and professional photographer! We could not be happier with our choice! The communication was great, fast response and very informative. Jo really listened to us and helped us plan our shoot. On the day Jo and the team were absolutely phenomenal- everything was sorted out for us, we had a great time, felt very relaxed and the atmosphere was simply great ! Finally we chose Jo because of the beautiful, film look style of his photography and when we saw the outcome of our shoot we were incredibly happy! The photos capture and portray the true emotions and special moments of that day, they are so sophisticated, elegant and beyond our expectations. They really are the kind you see in the magazines! Finally, Jo is so humble, hard working and very pleasant to work with – we honestly had fun shooting so highly recommend!

    We are really happy that we chose Jo to be our photographer. We knew that wedding photos always look nice (sometimes not) but the ones he made are really above the standards. We would never thought that he can “catch the moment” so perfectly. He and his team made the day more memorable. We look like a real prince and princess in these pictures.

    Jo Yu is a really passionate photographer. He is also very understanding and flexible. I took my photos when I unfortunately was sick with fewer.Jo Yu made me understand that I was in charge and that I decided when to rest and where to go. He asked many times how I felt and his team was very understanding that dates was shifted due to my health and that we altered the photo destinations.
    I am extremely happy with the results and that I look like a princess.
    Thanks for being so caring understanding and still take amazing shots!
    Best regards Jenny

    Hello fellow brides!

    I say brides cuz i believe it is the bride who cares about the photos more! 🙂 (At least in my case, as my husband can take anything but I am quite demanding on photo quality)

    So, all i can say is Jo Yu’s wonderful and he is very talented. I love all the emotions he captured and his photos are exceptional. I do like his style looking at his portfolio here already, that’s why i got Jo as my main photographer on my big day. I couldn’t be happier on the outcome of my photos and I have no hesitation to recommend Jo Yu as your wedding photographer. Plus, he is easy to work with and he is a nice guy!

    And finally Jo, sorry for only writing this now after 4 months as i am so tied with work and stuff but i didn’t forget you! Good work and talents need to be appreciated and spread. Keep going Jo! You will go far my wedding day photographer!

    Thanks for bringing us the wonderful experiences in working with you.

    Best Regards,

    • Wilten
