Wedding at Church of Divine Mercy: Nilshan & Praveena


From Melbourne to KL to Colombo and back…

It was on the beautiful grounds of Monash University that their love story started… Praveena was an undergraduate who recently transferred from Malaysia to Melbourne, Australia. Her friends were watching a match at the Farrer Hall common room and invited her to join them. Despite her lack of interest, she happily came down for the nachos, cheesecake, and other snacks.

Nilshan, on the other hand, had been living in Melbourne for over a year by then, and was also studying his undergraduate degree at Monash. Two of his friends lived at Farrer Hall and invited him to watch the match there. Little did the two love birds know that this would be the first time they laid eyes on each other.

Praveena and Nilshan continued to bump into each other through mutual friends, whether it was a restaurant outing, group trip, night out or Sunday mass. Two years later, Nilshan asked Praveena out on their first date. Their romance unfolded over dinner and a mutual love of spicy food… until the rest was history.

Maternity Portraits: Lucia

There are a few occasions where I photograph women in lingerie… usually when they get into their wedding gown, when they want to take boudoir or glamour photos for their husband, or during a maternity shoot. As a female photographer, women feel more comfortable baring skin in front of me. There is a sense of vulnerability and I am honoured that complete trust is given to me.

Lucia is from Vietnam and she met the man of her dreams, Ben during one of his trips overseas. With her gorgeous looks, she is one of the hottest mums I have seen! It is no wonder that Ben is grinning from ear to ear during our photo session. I am so excited for the both of you… this journey of parenthood has its ups and downs but it is certainly rewarding! Looking forward to seeing photos of the little one soon!

Pre-Wedding at Taaras Resort, Redang: Jonathan & Vanilla

This is a love story that spans across two countries… Malaysia and China. It was Vanilla’s best friend’s wedding in Penang and the 7th time she became a bridesmaid. So Vanilla travelled from China to attend the wedding, not thinking that she would ever find love on this side of the ocean. For the past 6 weddings, she had always rushed to grab the bouquet but this time, the couple specially presented the bouquet to her as a gift. As fate would have it, during her trip to KL after the wedding, she met Jonathan, who was her friend’s younger brother. Her first thought was that this boy was cute! They didn’t really have much time to chat until the day she was due to travel to the airport. Jonathan was tasked to send her to the airport and it was during that loooong ride that they got to know each other.

Vanilla was surprised that at the end of that ride, he expressed his love at first sight to her. He immediately hooked her heart that day, and soon, they were messaging each other everyday. Their relationship blossomed despite their age difference with him being younger.

I was privileged to travel with them to The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort on Redang Island for their pre-wedding photo session. Despite the rainy weather forecast, everything went really well and we had a beautiful day together. The couple’s family also came along for the trip, so we squeezed in some shots with them. All the best to the both of you as you start your life’s journey together.

Glamour Up And Bring Out The Diva In You!


We’ve all heard of boudoir shoots… those somewhat risqué and sexy images in a bedroom or studio setting that wives take for their husbands. (They make great gifts for your spouse, by the way!) But what if you just want to keep it clean and still get some gorgeous pictures of yourself or with your girlfriends? We’d suggest a glamour shoot in this case.

Wait, what is glamour photography again? It’s all about celebrating and embracing all that makes you who you are… while having fun! The image of Marilyn Monroe laughing with abandon as she holds down her flyaway white dress comes to mind. Here’s how you can pull it off too: Continue Reading

The Happy Japanese family: Yuki & Aki

Last year, we participated at the 9th Private International School Fair in Midvalley and met Yuki there at our booth. We had a great time just chatting and connecting and on that day itself, he booked a photography session with us. This really cute Japanese family loves Malaysia so much, they are considering making this their 2nd home under the Malaysian My Second Home program! It always amazes me when I meet expats who love Malaysia so much they want to make it their home. Despite the challenges our nation faces, I am still proud to be Malaysian. This is a place where many opportunities abound.

Here are some of my favourites from Yuki and Aki’s session.
