Jimmy Lucas

Jimmy first came into contact with SLR since the age of 5. Not the person behind the viewfinder, but the subject of the photographer. It was until the age of 21 when he went into photography. All thanks to the Wallaby trip that yielded blurred photos. Ever since year 2002, Jimmy has developed a deep sense of passion for expressing his emotions through photography.

With this desire, ambellic was created as the portfolio when Jimmy went into part-time wedding photography. He has since stopped taking assignments and this is now use as a family blog / travel log.

She is the inspiration of ambellic, the lady that is always giving full support to Jimmy. Since the day they met, she has been a wonderful memory to each and every day of their lives. These are the exact feelings that was penned down when Jimmy created ambellic in the image of Amber.

I was searching for an inspiration and I came across amble – to go at a slow, easy pace. I find it very meaningful for life. We are living in such a fast-paced world that often in life we miss out on many beautiful things; things that we might pass by everyday, or things that we might only encounter once in a lifetime. If only I could amble through life, capture those precious moments, and tell that story to someone else. I think this is how my photography should be. To capture your moments of life, for you to share it with your loved ones, for you to revive these emotions as you amble down the beach with your grandchildren. Amble has the same pronunciation as Amber. As much as my wife is an angel in my life, I believe your lifetime partner is likewise in your eyes. We often visualise this important person as an angelic figure.

a name + a meaningful word + an important person

am-bell-lic, that’s how it shall be pronounce

ambellic is a tribute to my wife, and it shall be the storyteller for you.

Jevriel Lucas

Jevriel is made in Paris and born in Singapore. He is almost named as Eiffel because of that (lol!)

As the new addition to the family, Jevriel brings along endless joy and surprises as he grows up day by day. It shall come a day when he can understand this blog, and amble down the memories that was written. It will be an amazing experience to know the part of his parents’ lives before his coming, and to know how life was before he could understand anything here.

Jimmy created ambellic for Amber, as a wedding photography portfolio. It was then transformed into a family blog for Jevriel. Together they form ambellic.
