Based in Hong Kong, travelling worldwide, I'm a lifestyle and wedding photographer with a particular love for capturing family moments. The heart and soul of my work centres around helping people who love each other to record their landmark moments.

Capturing fine art and documentary style weddings remains my primary focus, but I remain versatile enough to capture events of all kinds, no matter how big or small.

In 2007, I founded Justin Lim Photography, with my bespoke social hub The Kandid following ten years later. With over 10 years of experience in Hong Kong's corporate and event photography scene, I believe I always bring an element of measured experience to any commission.

I am currently a contributor and shareholder of Stocksy United, a world-leading stock photography co-op.

Contact me here to discuss a package which best suits your photographic needs. My pricing is fair, transparent, and I am happy to work on flexible pricing schemes with clients. My workspace The Kandid is fully stocked with lighting by Profoto and props aplenty. I'm approachable and always up for coffee!



I have been featured by Instagram as a "Suggested User", and seen my work highlighted by VSCO, 500px, Flickr and more. As a result, I have collaborated with numerous brands on their social media branding, content creation and visual identity. Clients in this space include Omega, MR PORTER, DJI Global and many others.

Always with an eye on adventure and travel, my photography and prints have been exhibited in places as far away as Europe and Australia, and featured by the likes of Assouline. My photojournalism has been seen on the BBC and The Guardian.

In 2016, I appeared on Austria's Next Top Model as a guest judge and social media consultant, and also was featured by Emirates Airlines' in-flight magazine Open Skies as their "Entrepreneur of the Month" for my seminar and educational work at my bespoke workspace, The Kandid.

I am a global ambassador for Skylum and have served as guest editor of 500px.com - the world's most progressive and dynamic photography platform.

The son of Malaysian parents, I was raised in Hong Kong at GSIS and educated in Britain at Charterhouse School, Surrey. I hold a LLB degree from the London School of Economics, am a qualified solicitor and have been called to the Hong Kong Bar. I have also served as Head of Social Media for Malt Masters HK.

In the hustle and bustle of the modern times we live in, it’s often not obvious that there are little pockets of beauty that lie in every moment and event, every coming together of friends and family. Through my photos, I hope I can move people and help them relive their special memories - with an aesthetic which is classic yet recognisably bespoke.
— Justin Lim, Wedding Photographer
