Portraits

God is Writing Their Love Story…

Photographer: Grace
Location: Some random park in Subang

It was 8am. I arrived at Aaron’s home in Subang to be greeted by his warm and welcoming family. In a matter of minutes, they made me feel at home, our conversation drifting from what they do for work to why I shoot portraits for a living to pieces of artwork on their family wall. For an hour, I took some informal photos of Aaron’s family. An hour later, Sheena arrived at Aaron’s place, having rushed over from work not too long ago.

She had just completed her night shift at the hospital, and hadn’t slept at all. After her shift ended, she rushed home, got dressed, did her own make up and made her way to Aaron’s place. I was really amazed at the energy this girl had! I was concerned that she would be really tired for our portrait session, but Sheena made everything look so easy.

The both of them are super easy to photograph. They kept laughing at every little thing I said (or didn’t say!). Our shoot location was no where glamourous. In fact, it was a tiny park across the road from Aaron’s home. I hope these photos show you that it doesn’t matter at the end of the day where we shoot, what matters most is the connection between the couple. Aaron and Sheena were so comfortable in their own skin and in front of the camera. Sometimes I felt ignored. But that’s totally fine with me. :)

Nice touch with the t-shirt…

Aaron & Sheena will be getting married on the 7th of January 2012! Our team will be covering their wedding then. So if you are friends of the couple, save the date!

    Dear Grace, we totally didn’t mean to make you feel ignored! *hugs* Thank you for the great shots you took of us as a couple & yep, I’m amazed at how you made that “random park” look good :) Also, that save-the-date card picture was so inspired! So happy we have a photographer who would even think of using that randomly placed wooden scorecard. Genius. Thanks again for spending the day with us & for writing about it, too :) God bless!

  • Sheena was my house-officer. ( A very cekap one at that) She had loads of energy and was lovely to work with. I missed the wedding. What a lovely surprise to find her pre-wedding pictures here. Yay
