Maternity & Baby Portraits: Peter & Sharon

It’s always a pleasure to photograph the people closest to you, and to know that you’re documenting such a beautiful moment in their lives. Sharon and I have a relationship that goes beyond a decade. We’ve seen each other through our ups and downs, cried with each other, and laughed together. From adolescence to adulthood. It’s been a wonderful friendship. I’m so happy that I even had a voting say in how to spell baby J’s name! I look forward to growing old together as we mature together in life, Sharon and Peter.

The maternity photos were taken by me, and the rest of the baby and family portraits were photographed by Diane.

The First & Last Dance of a Dying Man with his Daughter

He was dying. She loved her Dad more than anything. All she ever dreamt of was to dance with him during her wedding. The problem? She hadn’t found a groom yet.

This heartwarming story tells of an ingenious plan that was devised by Rachel Wolf so that she could fulfil her dream ahead of time, in light of the short amount of time remaining she had with her cancer-afflicted father.

Oppa Gangnam style invades weddings!

You’ve heard the music, seen the crazy dance (and the 20,281 parodies of it!), but have you seen one incorporated into a wedding? We’re not insanely crazy over the craze, but this is quite hilarious and sports good production quality.

Oppa gangnam anyone?

Pre-Wedding Love Story: Tze Seong & Joanne

Tze Seong & Joanne’s Love Story from Stories on Vimeo.

One of the services we offer is a dramatized, personalized pre-wedding love story. It’s a unique way of sharing your story with your wedding guests. Every Love Story video is different, and we can incorporate interviews into the video as well.

All that’s being presented in this video is true historically, from the attire, to the gifts, to the venue, etc, and that meant that we shot their first date in Jonker Walk, Malacca! Thank God that Joanne could remember all the details! Well, men are always forgetful when it comes to these kinda things, eh? ;)

Tze Seong’s from Malacca, while Joanne’s from Negeri Sembilan and even though they are neighbours state-wise, they actually fell in love in Penang at Excel Point Community Church. While she was checking out the cool drummer-boy, he was checking her out on Facebook, and that’s how it all started.

Both were very natural on camera, especially with Tze Seong being the joker, all smiles, in front and behind the camera were genuine, and we had a great time shooting, especially in Malacca when we truly had fun ourselves! The cafe at the of the video is actually just off Jonker Walk, called Calanthe Art Cafe, and they were very kind to allow us to shoot many shots within the premise during peak hours!

Enjoy!

Death is inevitable, death at 24 is unimaginable

I don’t blog much for Stories, but today, I read this extremely touching story that moved me to share it with all of you. I hope it helps you be more reflective and appreciative of every day we are blessed with, and live life to its fullest.

Death is inevitable. Death at 24-years of age, is unimaginable.

Ryan Smith, an average American bloke, met Bethany Schmidt at the age of 17 in 2005 and like most young adults, fell passionately in love. They were inseparable and did everything they could think of together.

Six years later, tragedy struck. Ryan learnt he had a rare type of cancer. Time stood still. Plans for the future were abruptly interrupted for the lovers.

Knowing his days were limited, he concocted a plan to propose and still get married to the one person he loved most in life.

With a mere three days of planning, a beautiful wedding was staged for 32 guests.

“Till death do us part” takes on a new meaning, especially when it is imminent.

Have a read of this story as chronicled in Today Weddings, on msnbc.com. If you’d like to read what Bethany herself has to say, click here.
