Behind the Scenes: Pre-Wedding Shoot around Bukit Tinggi

About a month back, our team went to Bukit Tinggi for a pre-wedding shoot. This couple found us through the Wedding Story Pre-wedding promotion, and signed up for our services. However, I can’t put up their photos yet due to various reasons – so I’ll post the photos at a later date! For now, I’ll just show you some behind the scenes shots of us goofing around while waiting for the couple to arrive. For your info, if you are a photographer/client who plans to have portrait shoots within the Bukit Tinggi grounds, there is a fee that is chargeable. The rate is about RM300-400 for the usage of the space for each location. If you go as a tourist, you only pay the entrance fee of RM10. :)

The man that glows…

Doesn’t Bukit Tinggi look like a page out of a kid’s fairy tale book? It’s just amazing. The colours – they are so blinding, I keep thinking of candy canes and stories from Enid Blyton.

The actual pre-wedding photos to come soon! :)

Childhood Montage with a Twist!

Was digging through my old cupboard today and found my pre-wedding video that was done 2 years ago! It was shot and edited by my ex-colleagues and coordinated by my beloved sister. Alex and I conceptualized the idea with my sister. It felt like such a long time ago! It even has snippets from when Alex proposed to me in 2005. *At that time I didn’t know Kee Sitt well, so excuse the home video grainy look! :P*

If any of you are interested in having a video like this done for your wedding day, do call us to have a chat. We’re open to discussing new and interesting ideas that you may have.

Please make sure that you press play then immediately pause for the loading to complete before playing so that it will play smoothly.

Behind the Scenes: Ken & Cynthia

Just to share some photos from Ken and Cynthia’s Pre-Wedding Shoot in Malacca some time back. There’s a lot of exciting possibilities when you look at a situation and turn it from dull to interesting by adding lighting and a different perspective. Remember this shot?

Well, this was where we were…

And from this angle…

This was the shot I got… Luckily they did not land on me. Haha…

Looks like a jungle, but it was only 1 minute away from Melaka Raya.

The Wedding of Ken & Cynthia

Some time back, I blogged about Ken and Cynthia here – when I shot their pre-wedding photos. On the day of their wedding, Mark and I had such a ball of a time as their photographers. Their wedding was full of joy and laughter. It’s so tough to sort through the thousands of photos that we took to narrow it down to just a few. Here are some of my favourites from the day.

It cracks me up everytime I see this photo of Ken…

Mark took this really beautiful silhouette shot of Cynthia by the window.

After the games session and the tea ceremony, we headed over to a Catholic church in Setapak for some family portraits. Along the way, we stumbled upon this lake - we had to stop and take some more photos of just the 2 of them!

The yam sengs were long and loud... and even this kid below wanted to join in, with his water bottle! Sorry, you're a little too young for alcohol!

Andre & Savitha

This has got to be the wedding of the year. The wedding celebrations took place over a few days and at various locations – including India and Malaysia. I got to know Dato’ Ravi Dharan through Jeffri Lim from Sunflower Paper Products (they have a shop at the Curve). Dato’ Ravi wanted to create a surprise video for his lovely daughter Savitha. Together with his wife, Latha, they organized Savitha’s childhood photos and after a few meetings, the Wedding Story team went over to Dato’ Ravi’s home to secretly interview him without his daughter’s knowledge.

I can tell from my encounters with Dato’ Ravi and Latha, that truly, Savitha is the limelight of their lives. The wedding at the Palace of the Golden Horses was so grand – they had the Hindu ceremony on the lake witnessed by guests through live video feed in the Grand Marquee. A few days later, a black tie dinner took place at the Imperial Hotel, where this video was played to an audience like Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim and ex-President of Indonesia – Abdurrahman Wahid (Gus Dur).

Congratulations, Andre and Savitha, I wish you all the best in your marriage and am so glad that you enjoyed watching this specially crafted video.
