Portraits

Warren and Amy Weds! Part 2

After the ceremony we took some portraits before the sun sets. I always recommend setting aside 45 mins to an hour to get these type of shots on your wedding day. Just a short time alone from all the crowd, just the both of you.

The dinner reception started not too long after the ceremony ended. They had a really neat idea of taking polaroid shots of their guests and then sticking the photos in a guest book where the guests would sign next to it. Their polaroid photographer was pretty good at posing himself!

Senior pastor of DUMC, Pastor Daniel said grace before dinner started.

Amy’s dad gave a really good speech!

Another great speech by Warren’s dad. His sisters were excellent emcees.

The best men…

The highlight of the night was when Amy and her dad performed a duet. They both sang extremely well!

20090509_WEDDING_WARREN_AMY_2030.jpg

There were lots and lots of singing that night. Definitely a talented family!

Portraits: Albert & Michelle

I’ve known Michelle since I started working in KL and attending Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC). She was the person who brought me to cell group, who did an amazing job decorating my wedding venue, and has been a true friend through the years. Some time back, Alex and I started a social group called Rendezvous where single Christians can meet, mingle and get to know different people through various activities. Together with a few other friends, we organized a fun treasure hunt, and encouraged Michelle (then single!) to join in. She did, and that’s where she met Albert… who was in the same ‘group’ as her. After a few other outings on their own accord, they discovered that they kinda clicked, and soon after, started dating.

And now I am so excited to have been given the opportunity to take their portraits and also their wedding in August! Michelle and Albert love taking photos. They are natural at posing, and Michelle looks absolutely stunning in these photos. Part of Michelle’s interest is coordinating weddings, and she makes a great wedding planner! She has coordinated quite a number of weddings and I must say, is a really organized person. It’s no surprise then that she and Albert started planning their wedding waaaay ahead of time and by now, she has sorted out her venue, photographer, deco, cards, guest list, phew… Albert is really supportive of Michelle as she runs around coordinating not only her own wedding but others.

I really had a good time with the both of you, looking forward to August!!

This wasn’t the only portrait shoot we had… here’s another set of images, taken much earlier. You’ve seen the elegant side of Michelle, now you get to see her fun side! And of course, Albert’s pretty fun as well! ;)

The Wedding of Cui & Yi Chian Part1

This is proof that a long distance relationship is viable and can stand the test of time! Cui and Yi Chian met in the US when they were both university students but had to part ways after they graduated. Yi Chian moved back to Singapore, and Cui lived and worked in New York. Years later, after enduring many long 24 hour flights, Yi Chian popped the question while they were on a hiking holiday to the base camp of Mt Everest in Nepal!

The beach wedding was held in Avillion Resort, Port Dickson. Five of us from the Wedding Story team went down to Port Dickson the night before and met up with Cui & Yi Chian at their family BBQ. Even after 10 minutes of talking, we knew that we could instantly click. They are definitely an adventurous couple!

The next morning, we had an early morning start at 4.30am! When the sun rose, Avillion looked so beautiful…. and so did Cui.

When the guys came over, the girls made them do some really crazy stuff…

20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_0229.jpg

Like dancing like a chicken!

20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_0297.jpg

Or putting on lipstick for each other…

20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_0250.jpg

Some were better than others… guys you need make up lessons!

20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_0254.jpg

When Yi Chian finally got to Cui, she could not help but laugh at his fake ‘mole’.

20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_0402.jpg

After a short time of tea ceremony with Cui’s parents, we left for a nearby bungalow, where Yi Chian’s family were waiting.

20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_0631.jpg 20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_0662.jpg

Then there were the serious family portraits…. and also the fun ones!

20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_0589.jpg 20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_0593.jpg

It was already about 12pm when we drove to a well hidden light house for some portraits. It was my first time there and I absolutely loved it! The only thing was the terrible noon time sun that beat down on us mercilessly. But Cui and Yi Chian didn’t bat an eyelid. They were super gung-ho to do everything I asked them to do.

20090328-WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN-001.jpg

One of the scary things…. like climbing this really steep ladder up to another floor. Cui did it in her high heels ok! And came down the same way! Even with my flat shoes, my knees were a little wobbly!

20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_0933.jpg 20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_0956.jpg

But it was worth it!

20090328-WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN-002.jpg 20090328-WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN-003.jpg

Finally, we went back to Avillion to shoot some more portraits around the pool side and garden.

20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_1011.jpg 20090328_WEDDING_CUI_YICHIAN_1014.jpg

We only had a 2.5 hour break before we had to get back to Avillion for the solemnization ceremony. Through out the ceremony, Sharon Chong was working on the slideshow to be shown during dinner. It was a pretty mad rush but we managed to complete it! Here’s the slideshow that we played that night. Part 2 of the wedding to come soon!

Press play and then pause to let the video load fully, or else you might see it skip back to the first frame.

Portraits: Warren & Amy

This coming May, Warren and Amy will be tying the knot at Putrajaya Marriott. Last year, I photographed Warren and Amy’s proposal in Carcosa on a helicopter! What I really enjoy about photographing Warren and Amy are their endless ideas! Amy is full of new poses and she is a natural model. Doesn’t she look simply amazing? I can’t wait for your wedding! Looking forward to creating beautiful shots for the both of you. Here are some photos from the shoot. I am so excited to see that some of these photos are on your wedding website! The website and wedding invite looks wonderful.
