Winner of a WeddingWire's Bride's Choice Award for three consecutive years, experienced photographer Kusuma Wijaya of K Studio captures memorable shots of families, wedding parties, and individuals. Wijaya was working at a restaurant when he found his calling during a chance conversation with of photography-loving patron. When Wijaya asked him why he takes pictures, the aged cameraman replied, "every single picture has its own story.” That was all Wijaya needed to hear to inspire him to change his career path. So he jetted over to New York City, where he attended the School of Visual Arts. Diploma in hand, he founded his own studio, as well as an organization for pro photographers from his native Indonesia. His ultimate dream is to start a tuition-free photography school in his country, but in the meantime, he's cultivating a diverse, colorful portfolio of images—each, of course, with its own story.
