The Wedding of Kelvin & Cathryn

Posted by | Church Weddings, Weddings 9 Comments

If you talk about unconventional couples, Kelvin and Cathryn definitely fit the bill. Both Kel and PC as they are affectionately known, serve in Eaglepoint church in Puchong. In fact, PC is a pastor and Kel is the worship director in church. Their wedding theme is called “A Story of Grace“, done in a movie style. I love the movie posters that they have created as decorations. The excitement on that day was just incredible. The church was packed and people were standing everywhere. You would have thought that there was a concert going on!

There are way too many photos from their wedding to post here. These are some of my favourites.

The groom and all 6 of his best men strutted their way down the aisle in style!

It was really sweet when Kel sang as PC walked down the aisle…

And then she started singing too!

After the church ceremony, we adjourned for lunch at a nearby restaurant, did the tea ceremony and then some portraits after!

After a while, storm clouds started to gather and we scrambled to maximize the clouds before it poured!

And finally, our own team shot from that day’s shoot. From left to right: Alex, Grace, Kee Sitt, Sharon Koo and Sharon Chong. We took this shot at 3.30pm in the afternoon. Want to find out how we turned day to night? Will blog about it in another post!

The Wedding of Bernard & Huay-Sien

Posted by | Church Weddings, Weddings 2 Comments

I am back again with another post, this time it was for Bernard and Huay-Sien. It was a truly unique wedding and Ian and I had just so much fun shooting. The morning started with the usual preparation before the church ceremony. I love shooting at Huay-Sien’s place, the colour of the walls were so nice and vibrant and I can really think of so many places where I can shoot in the house.

Ian on the other hand was over at Bernard’s place capturing the groom and his family.

The church ceremony was held at St. Peter’s in Bangsar, it was the first time that I had the opportunity to shoot in this beautiful church.

Once the ceremony was over, both Bernard and Huay-Sien were so happy that they just couldn’t stop smiling the whole time!

Right after the church ceremony, we all then headed towards Le Meridien for the wedding luncheon. It is not very often that we get to attend a wedding luncheon instead of the usual wedding dinners.

bhs_blog_012

Bernard’s speech was so hilarious that I just couldn’t stop laughing myself!

bhs_blog_013

Both Bernard and Huay-Sien also requested that we have a portraiture session and I actually did a little scouting of Le Meridien a week before the wedding and found out that the hotel was just beautiful and there are countless of spots where you can capture lovely images. So while Huay-Sien was getting ready for the portraiture session, Ian took this beautiful shot of their wedding bands.

From then onwards, we headed around the entire hotel shooting non-stop. It was great and both Bernard and Huay-Sien were so cooperative. They are so easy to work with and I had loads of fun just joking around and shooting.

While Ian was taking the shot above, I caught a candid shot of Huay-Sien below.

The one thing I really noticed about the hotel was that they had loads of interesting decorations about, like the image below.

Even the lifts were not spared as well!

bhs_blog_022

They even had this interesting corridor linking both Le Meridien and KL Hilton as well.

The lobby area was just awesome!

Trying out various silhouette shots, again ;)

Found a hidden place outside with some interesting leading lines.

I guess after having so much fun, we totally lost track of time. The sun set so fast!

Finally a group shot of all of us at our final location.

And last but not least here is also a shot I sneaked in of Ian while he was trying to pose the lovely couple. Before signing off, I would like to extend my congratulations again to both Bernard and Huay Sien and that the two of you will have a great life ahead!

The Wedding of Ken & Cynthia

Posted by | Church Weddings, Portraits, Pre-Wedding & Engagement Portraits, Weddings 5 Comments

Some time back, I blogged about Ken and Cynthia here – when I shot their pre-wedding photos. On the day of their wedding, Mark and I had such a ball of a time as their photographers. Their wedding was full of joy and laughter. It’s so tough to sort through the thousands of photos that we took to narrow it down to just a few. Here are some of my favourites from the day.

It cracks me up everytime I see this photo of Ken…

Mark took this really beautiful silhouette shot of Cynthia by the window.

After the games session and the tea ceremony, we headed over to a Catholic church in Setapak for some family portraits. Along the way, we stumbled upon this lake - we had to stop and take some more photos of just the 2 of them!

The yam sengs were long and loud... and even this kid below wanted to join in, with his water bottle! Sorry, you're a little too young for alcohol!
