I find it really amusing when a bride & groom can look super glamorous like this one moment…

And absolutely zany and crazy the next moment!

Fun, laughter and silly ideas. That totally describes the kind of shoot we had for Alvin & Melissa’s pre-wedding. Add to that equation a vintage Morris Minor that belongs to Alvin’s mom, lots of love and it becomes an amazing shoot!

It’s not very surprising that Alvin and Melissa came up with these creative ideas as they are both extremely talented and creative people. Melissa works in an advertising agency, and she even gave me a printed brief of what she wanted for her pre-wedding photography session! On the day of our shoot, I was tickled when I saw this sign outside their room door…

So sweet! Aaw, I think I melted into nothingness then. :) Alvin and Melissa even prepared chocolates for me! How thoughtful!

Carcosa is a great place for photography. I love this location!

Gorgeous veil…

Alvin having a bit of fun here…

They are amazing. They created and prepared all these props themselves.

Like spray painted this frame from Ikea…

You can’t go to Carcosa and not have a tea party…

 

Alvin & Melissa have style… love his Stefano & Mario limited shoes and her Christian Louboutin shoes.

Melissa loves her lomo cameras… and so do I! Years ago, it was lomo that made me fall in love with photography and colours…

Just for fun… cross processed treatment for this shot… :)

Thank you, Alvin & Melissa for an enjoyable day! I can’t wait for your wedding day in October. I am sure it’ll be really exciting with a lot more superb details. Oh, and one more thing… we do have a little behind the scenes video to share… which we will be sharing in another post soon!
