Since we have moved in to our spanking new unit in SSTwo Mall, we have utilized the studio space quite well, I must say. We have done several shoots here, some of which are for our clients and for training. I had the opportunity to head a studio family portrait session for the lovely Kuan Family, who grabbed their slot during our April – May promo. They came in to the studio clad in white tops, except Helen, who come in gorgeous royal purple. I like this coordination- it makes her stand out. :) Here are some of my favourite shots for the shoot.
He’s from Macau, she’s from Kuala Lumpur, they met in Australia, and are now based in Hong Kong! :D
Rodel and Jamie came to us way back, and we were excited ever since ’cause it’s at the Palace of the Golden Horses! It’s indeed a great location, and it was capped off with a great wedding of Rodel and Jamie. It had a very meaningful walk in, a very beautiful wedding ceremony, and a very lovely performance by the cousin of the bride. It’s definitely one of the most memorable weddings that we’ve covered thus far! Enjoy it! :D
Dear Grace and The Team,
We don’t know where to begin to thank you. You and your team did such an amazing job that not only did we think so, but every one of my family and friends would agree. You and your team are extremely talented and you exceeded our expectation on every level.
Diane, thanks for setting up everything including all the necessary paperwork and arrangement for our day.
Not forgetting Johan for cranking up jokes and making the photo session merrier for everyone. We loved our photographers for the day, even every one is talking about how wonderful these photographers we had. Grace, even though you are pregnant.. and assigned us a third photographer, we felt that it is very professional of you to help us capturing all the great moments of the day and all the hard work that you put in making that day unforgettable for us. We were sort of a little worry for you as you trying so hard capturing some of the great moments for us in the church. Make sure you take it slow in your upcoming photo shooting..
We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for providing us with such beautiful memorabilia of our most precious day of our lives, erm.. even though we didn’t have a chance to glance through our photos yet… and every one is asking for it already!!!!
It was a day when we were both too nervous to notice anyone or anything around us, but we hope that the photos you have will re-create our world on that day for us – the wonderful people we love, the detail of each session, and the scenic views around us..will help us remember our special day.
Thank you for capturing our wedding day with your creativity, your attention to detail, and your love in such professional manner. Your service was very professional and we will definitely recommend your service to all our family and friends.
Thank you again for all your work and dedication in making our wedding day so wonderful!

I am a big fan of having a good family photo taken. Having done some for Stories recently I’ve learnt that good family portraits takes some preparation. While the photographers worry about how to make you and your family look good, here’s some ideas and suggestions on how you can make the experience better.
1. Complement each other clothing-wise
Have your family members dress in clothes that complement each other, like wearing white tops. It doesn’t have to be of the same shade, but it could be in similar tones. If you don’t fancy the idea of being ‘too coordinated’, then we suggest wearing complementary colours, for example, earth tones (includes white, beige, green, yellow), or shades of blue. All-black outfits look a little too formal, so unless you’re going for that look (or an Addams family look), then we recommend staying away from that colour.

|It was very early morning at 8am that we reached Langkawi. Grace and Alex were very kind to wake up so early in the morning (after a full day shoot they had a day before) to pick us up from airport to the hotel. I wouldn’t say the weather was great but good enough for us as it wasn’t raining heavily in Langkawi as it was in KL. We started the shoot after lunch and went on all the way till sunset. It was really fun and both Alex and Grace were so accommodating and patient. We were a bit uneasy at first, not getting used to “showing our love” in front of the camera, but they guided us through all the way.It was a long and tiring day until nearly at the end when I was chit-chating with Grace and Alex that I found out the lovely couple are expecting a new family member! Grace was so energetic and dedicated to her work and Fanny and I were feeling bad to have made her work so long! The Stories team made our day and Diane has been very helpful in connecting things up for us from Day 1 when we started to engage them and got me hooked on chosing Stories as our photographer. The video clip was wonderful! We can’t stop repeating it again and again, how great would it be if there is one song that could fit all the photos in! =D
Fanny and I knew each other since we were kids. We were classmates when we were 10 in our primary school, little did she know that I was already admiring her back then! Fate brought us back again together 10 years ago and we had been through loads of highs and lows, we are gladly thankful to have found each other and for being able to start our own family.
The proposal was really a spontaneous thing I did last June 2011 and I forgot about the previous few plans which I was cracking head on. We were both busy with work after our ROM in August last year. Needless to say, when it is the right time, you know what you ought to do.
Once again, a very big thank you to Stories, for making it work and capturing the once in a lifetime memorable moments for us.
