Who would’ve thought you can have your pre-wedding shoot at Genting SkyWorlds Theme Park and Resorts World Awana? Now you can! As Resorts World Genting’s pre-wedding photography and videography partner, we have made special arrangements for you to have exclusive access to these places from now until 30th June 2023. Each booking comes with a 1 night stay so that you can make the most of your time there.
Your pre-wedding photoshoot should be just as important and meaningful as your wedding photoshoot. It’s more than just “pictures you put on display for your guests on your wedding day”. These photos will be cherished forever and will be a reminder of the true emotions and memories that you and your partner shared. With that said, here are the top few things you should take note of as you’re planning for your pre-wedding photoshoot.
1. The Best Time
As we know our Malaysian weather can be intense, so we would always recommend mornings for outdoor photoshoots. We don’t want sweaty shots now, do we? Besides that, the lighting from the morning sun gives an overall better look to the photos as there would be no harsh spots. Also, it is recommended to do it on a weekday to avoid crowds and people getting into your shots. So try to schedule a weekday early morning pre-wedding photoshoot with your photographer if you want the morning glow and a smoother session!
2. The Best Location
The location you pick should be based on your preference and budget. Thankfully we have a wide range of locations to choose from that are mostly free of charge. For example, parks, beaches, the city and more heritage places like Melaka and Penang. The only thing you need to arrange for is transportation. Parks are always a popular choice among couples because who doesn’t love nature? Plus, our parks are actually quite beautiful and easily accessible. But if you’re looking for a unique pre-wedding destination with chilly weather, may we recommend Resorts World Genting? Our partnership with them (ends in 30th June 2023) gives you exclusive access to the theme park before it opens. That way, we’ll have the whole theme park to ourselves! Imagine that.
It was a pleasure to photograph Kit Mah and Cindy’s pre-wedding photos. When Kit Mah and Cindy first met online, they approached each other to chat about work, health, and wellness. As they got to know each other more, Kit Mah was impressed by how Cindy was such a dedicated and highly disciplined person. Kit Mah found many common things in them, and they shared many of the same values. One day, Cindy was leaving for a trip to Indonesia, and Kit Mah was speaking at the Integrative Medicine Conference 2019 for the first time. Despite the packed schedule, Kit Mah still had Cindy in mind and wished her a safe flight. Cindy was touched by how thoughtful he was. That was one of the sweetest memories for both of them. They continued building the relationship, having so much to share with each other, and the time together was never enough. The connection was strong and special. Kit Mah has even created a book to document their love journey together.
We are excited to reveal some images taken at a recent styled shoot as a collaboration between a few vendors brought together by Weddings Malaysia. When we heard that Colony had a new co-working space at Star Boulevard with a beautiful ballroom, we knew that this was the location for the styled shoot. There were photo opportunities at every corner! Have a look at some of our favourites from the session and check out the profiles of all the vendors involved in this shoot.

If you love the beach, I would totally recommend heading to Krabi, Thailand for a pre-wedding, anniversary or even a family portrait session! Recently, we were invited by Tourism Thailand and Weddings Malaysia on a familiarisation trip to Krabi. There were 5 of us – a few photographers, a videographer and a wedding planner. We were brought around to many beautiful resorts and met the sales people at these hotels. Some of these venues were just perfect for a wedding ceremony. In fact, with reasonable air fares, heading to Krabi on a 1.5 hour flight for a photo session is not only easily accessible but it is affordable.
This was my 3rd time on a photo session in Krabi, Thailand. If you are interested in our current promotion (rates start from RM5,500 not inclusive of flights & accommodation costs), contact us so that we can bring you around in the land of Amazing Smiles! Let us arrange all the details for the trip. We will also be happy to take you along for a post-shoot massage. Contact us to find out specific promo details.
These photos were taken around Hong Island and The ShellSea Krabi.
