Introducing Stories for Business

Since our company, Integricity Visuals Sdn Bhd was incorporated in 2008, we have used this name for all our corporate work, including separating our commercial photography and video production from our personal lifestyle photography work. However, to many of you, we were simply known as the Stories team because of our lifestyle photography brand, Stories.my that grew to be a household name in the area of family, maternity and wedding photography.

After much deliberation, we have decided to consolidate and create a simpler brand experience for everyone. As of 2020, our corporate brand under Integricity Visuals is now known as Stories for Business. Our lifestyle photography work will still continue to exist as Stories Lifestyle.

Thank you for being part of our journey all these years!

Many of these ‘candid moments’ don’t happen by themselves, and they may not always happen in places that are meaningful to the people in the photo. The reality is, its usually a photographer’s job to create opportunities for these moments to happen and quickly snap the photo whenever it does. Here are some examples:
