Our Photographer / Cinematographer : Michael Soo

Being a hitman professionally didn't pan out, Michael Soo's alternate plan is to shoot, instead as a photographer. Recipient of one of the highest awards in photography by the largest photography magazine in the world, Soo and his team fuses life, love and art into a blend of poetic imagery and motion cinema.

Soo's pizzazz and precognitive visualization in story-telling makes people feel comfortable and beautiful before his cameras, allowing them to capture fashion, professional portraits, commercial work and food imagery that transcend time. His fashion and commercial images have appeared in multinational magazines and publications worldwide.

A romantic at heart, Soo brings a sense of style and grace to his work, and his energy knows no bounds. Every day he feels very blessed to be able to work as an artist, and he truly pours his heart and soul into his work, drawing from his own experiences as a father, a son, a brother, a friend and a soulmate.

Soo is a photographer because he has to be. His photographs are his passion and pride.

NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders Swimsuit Calendar Photoshoot, St Petersburg, Florida

Five sunrises at 5am + five sunsets at 7pm + continuous computer work + 3 hours sleep per night x 5 days straight. At this rate, even 35+ hot cheerleaders in swimsuits can start to look uninteresting.

On another note, the triple engined speed boat took us over 60mph. That's whooping crazy. My favorite hat flew off my head a few times. The waves felt like iron plates slapping against the boat. It was exhilarating and FUN !!!

Destination wedding with Capture The Love team

It’s a beach in the Caribbean where white sands and crystal waters tickle your toes. It’s that spot in Paris when you met for the first time as exchange students, locking eyes at the foot of the Eiffel Tower illuminated in light. It’s a vineyard lush and laden with fruit, where rows and rows of grape vines serve as the picture frame for the declaration of your love. Wherever your “special place” may be, there’s an unmatched appeal to destination weddings, where you can get married in an atmosphere that is most meaningful to you.
