Dancing Around KL City Centre

As a Canon EOS ambassador, I get to test out the new EOS R5 and a few lenses, namely the RF 15-35mm f2.8 and 85mm f2.0 macro. I contacted my friend, Joanna Koleth, who is an amazing dance-artist, and some other amazing vendors who made this shoot happen. Soon, we were doing jumps around KL city centre. This shoot is part of a bigger project, one that involves a few other photographers. But that is yet to be revealed. The theme of the shoot revolves around this word, Harmony.

When conceptualizing the shoot, I thought about this word and what it means to me. A quick Google search revealed the meaning of harmony as “the state of being in agreement or concord.” As a Malaysian, I truly desire a state where the people in our land can live in harmony with each other. Our country is full of culture and heritage, and we’ve gone through good and bad seasons since celebrating our independence in 1957.

Learning how to balance our diversity with unity is not easy. Harmony is not just an outward appearance of accepting each other, it’s respecting each individual as they are. It’s also about merging old and new mindsets so that we can grow as a nation.

It’s a delicate dance.

Family Portraits: Roy & Pek Yee

Seven years ago, we photographed Roy and Pek Yee’s wedding in Kuala Lumpur. The couple had met in Shanghai and settled there as newlyweds. Early this year, when they were back for Chinese New Year, we got to photograph them again and this time – with an additional family member! Leah is the cutest little lady you ever did meet. We did a series of casual “at home” portraits at St Regis Residences (their “home” for the holiday) and Pek Yee’s sister joined in as well.

These kind of casual family shots are some of our favourites. Most of the time, its just us capturing all the little real moments that happen between husband and wife, mother and child, father and child, or other family members. You look at the photos and remember how soft your child’s skin feels against your cheek, how her hair curls perfectly at the ends, and how her trusting little eyes dance when they look into yours. You remember how beautiful your wife looks when she’s cuddling the children, or how incredibly happy you felt being held in your husband’s arms. These photos are like time capsules of memories and feelings that only you have the privilege of fully enjoying, and we absolutely love capturing them for you. More photos below!

Lifestyle Family Portraits: Jessica, Zoe, and Aidan

Our lifestyle photo session with Jessica and her kids, Zoe and Aidan took place at the hotel they were staying at during their trip to Kuala Lumpur. Jessica’s work keeps her busy and she likes keeping memories of her children close by filling her phone with their photos. She rarely gets the chance to be in photos with them. So with a nice hotel room setting, lots of natural light, and matching pyjamas. we helped her capture some of her favourite moments with them. Snuggles and cuddles all round!

It was so nice to see familiar faces in the crowd again and each person looked ravishing, as the couple’s family and close friends were donned in beautiful traditional Indian silks for the occasion. View the set below!

Chinese Peranakan Wedding: Mike & Sarah

Mike and Sarah’s wedding felt like a massive reunion of old friends. That usually happens when the bride and groom have known each other since childhood. Sarah’s earliest memory of Mike was in Sunday School. “He’d be the noisiest boy in the hall and be picked out instantly because of his vibrant personality. Till today – Mike has that extrovert personality!” she tells us. We could tell Mike certainly loves being around people and has a good¬†sense of humour. As for Sarah, she expresses herself through writing, singing, and describes herself as an introvert (although Mike disagrees with that last one). Over many years of friendship which eventually blossomed into a relationship, both their best qualities rubbed off on each other – making them a perfect team. The story of how they first met and grew together is really the stuff of a romance novel.
