DELEGATE: Tell us more about yourself
We are Wan Jing (Principal Photographer) & Zack (Light Painter) – a couple team in Knotties Frame. We founded Knotties Frame about 2.5 years ago with a strong belief in producing creative wedding shots that are different from the conventional photography style. We pride ourselves on crafting night wedding photos with various light painting tools and elaborate decorative setups. Night photography is an exclusive service and as we progress, we have developed a certain style that’s unique to us.
D: Most memorable experience starting your business?
We embarked on a trekking trip in Kazakhstan middle of this year. What was originally planned as a leisure trip turned into a work trip as we met like-minded customers who have great love for trekking too. And so we did their pre-wedding photoshoot during our 5D4N trek together, through the mountainous regions of Kazakhstan. Just imagine the amount of camera equipment we had to lug, on top of the 5-days’ worth of personal belongings. But the experience was one that I wouldn’t trade for anything as we were rewarded with a picturesque view and made new friends.
D: What is the one thing you would like your customers to know about your company?
Our Signature Night Photography! It is one that provides a very different and unique experience from conventional day photography. The night shoot would often involve thematic setups adorned romantic fairy lights and decorated with little personal props from our customers or a play on light effects as well as our signature light painting shots (a technique in which light is “painted” in a long exposure shot – there is no artificial additional via Photoshop). We are always so hearten when couples recognise this niche of ours and come to us specifically for this service.
D: What aspects of your personality can we see in your work?
I’m one who likes to keep things the natural way it is and explore impossibilities. These can be seen through the candidness in my works as well as the unique night shots we have been crafting.
D: What are your hobbies and passions outside work?
I’m pretty much a very outdoor person so exploration and hiking will always be on my plate.
D: Which habits of yours have gotten you to where you are today?
Staying determined and believing in impossibilities.
D: Any future plans in the pipeline?
We are looking to extend our service overseas and we are expecting more destination photography in the near future.
D: In your own words, starting your own business is…
Unbelievably tough and time-consuming yet exciting and rewarding.
D: One quote you live by?
You will either make it or break it. And the only choice you have is to make it.
