Five Things I Learned About Live Streaming as a Virtual Wedding Guest

BTS of Stanley & Natalie’s live streamed wedding, Luther Centre Petaling Jaya.

2020 was the year our services at Stories naturally progressed to include live streaming as well. As one of the photo curators for our blog, I now see more images of family members holding devices with their loved ones on screen during group photos and such. Technology has definitely become the only bridge for many of us who have friends and family across the globe.

However, experiencing what it’s like to be a virtual guest at my brother’s wedding made me really appreciate the wonders of hybrid events! It also made me see how a live streamed wedding involves more than just cool technology. It takes thoughtfulness, attention to detail, and everyone to play their role.

Here’s what I learned as a virtual wedding guest:

1. Different camera angles make all the difference

The couple had made the effort to provide two camera angles for us virtual guests to enjoy. One was placed at the aisle, so we could get a close up of their expressions as they made their vows. What an honour! The other was at the corner, giving us a wider view of the whole stage and the first row of guests who were physically present. It was nice to see the crowd’s reaction even from behind. It felt “like the real thing”.

Photoshoot Styling Tips: Choosing the Right Colours to Wear


Choosing the right clothes colours for your photoshoot is really important. This looks different for each person of course, because we all have different skin tones. Wearing the right colour for your skin tone can really accentuate your features, making you look fresh and energised. On the contrary, choosing colours that are less suitable results in looking washed out and drained.

This pop of colour looks great on them!

If the colour is too strong for your skin tone, it “overpowers” you. People get easily distracted by these unsuitable colours instead of focusing on the person wearing it. When you have a portrait or family photo with everyone wearing colours that complement their skin tone, it creates beauty and harmony to the photograph. Wearing the right colours (and having a good photographer) means that you get an amazing set of photos instead of an average one! So how do we know what colours look best on our skin tone?

Mother’s Day Contest 2020

A journey of a mother is a beautiful and challenging one. You go through life changes in your career, your role in the family, your bodies, your relationships, and also in learning how to be a mother with your newborn child. Very often, a mother’s main reference and source of confidence is from how they were raised by their own mothers.

So this Mother’s Day, we want to give all mothers the opportunity to celebrate this very moment in their lives and also remember that they have all the support they need. The journey they’re on today, is one that their mothers took with them before. We want to be part of that journey and celebrate with you too!

The Wedding of Daniel & Prisila


Daniel and Prisila’s fate was brought together by a dental visit. She was a practising dentist and he was her patient. He needed to see a dentist urgently one day and got her number from a mutual friend. Making the appointment just the night before, he told us, “From her profile photo, I realised she was hot!”

He didn’t have another reason to see her after that appointment but she definitely lingered on in his mind after. “She was very professional yet ever so sweet and gentle. She put on a surgical mask and started treating me. All I could see were her eyes and I couldn’t help staring. I distinctly remember being mesmerised by them. I remember having drinks with some close friends that evening and telling them about how gorgeous she was,” Daniel recalls.
