East Meets West Pre-Wedding: Matthew & Sophia

Matthew and Sophia’s pre-wedding was a blend of eastern influence meeting western culture. Since they both met and currently live in the UK, it was quite nice that their pre-wedding shoot was done in Malaysia when they came home for a short break. In such a short time, Sophia managed to buy a fitting red cheongsam for the shoot. We organized the make up artist Michelle for her and arranged for the gown from That Special Occasion. We discussed locations over email, made all arrangements remotely, and then met for the first time on the shoot day!

Wishing you an amazing future together – I am sure your kids will be blessed with good looks!


Rustic Pre-Wedding shoot with a VW Kombi: Eu Jin & Samantha

Her idea of a perfect day would be to cuddle in on a rainy day with a good book and a cup of latte. Ideally, next to the beach with the sound of waves breaking softly in the distance. His idea of a perfect day would be an early morning cappuccino followed by a good game of golf. And then enjoying a Rambo or Indiana Jones movie while dreaming of traveling to Africa one day and thinking of how to adopt a white tiger as a pet.

Together, they love to daydream about the future and talk about how to train their future white tiger pet. This is probably done over a Zinger burger meal at KFC! When they are not watching the sports channel on Astro, they are probably traveling the world seeing as much as they possibly can!

What a cute couple Eu Jin and Samatha are. Jamie and I truly enjoyed photographing their pre-wedding shots, and I am sure Chi Yin enjoyed herself too while shooting the behind the scenes video that you can see here. On the day of the shoot, it was raining at Sekeping Tenggiri and we weren’t sure if it would be raining too at UPM. But we took the risk and it was a perfect day which ended in a gorgeous sunset.

Smurfette, our resident VW kombi made an appearance too at the shoot! I am glad that I managed to drive it without any problems! Was worried about driving this manual car that has absolutely ZERO power steering. But all was good, and we had an awesome time.

Eu Jin and Sam, can’t wait for the wedding!


Behind the Scenes Video: Eu Jin & Samantha’s Prewedding

Our aim at every pre-wedding shoot is to relax and just have fun! For Eu Jin and Samantha’s pre-wedding, we headed to Sekeping Tenggiri and UPM. It rained just after we completed the shoot at Sekeping Tenggiri but thank God the weather held up while we were at UPM. One of the biggest challenges for me during this shoot was to drive our resident VW kombi, Smurfette to UPM. My short legs and lack of arm muscles posed a problem on the road (especially when doing 3 point turns with this non-power steering manual vehicle!), but thank God we survived!

Really had lots of fun too with Jamie assisting. And of course, this video wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for Chi Yin who filmed and edited the video.

We will be posting the photos from the pre-wedding shoot at a later stage, so keep a look out for it!

Pre-Wedding: Eric & Tinasha

It was the way he looked at her, the stolen glances in between… the way he gave in to her sometimes silly requests to make her happy… also the way he makes her laugh that you can see Eric is head over heels about Tinasha. They met through a friend back in their hometown, Ipoh, on the eve of Chinese New Year. However, after a brief conversation, Eric was ‘hijacked’ by two other girls. Fate brought them together when they came back to KL and after a few dates, they decided to take their relationship to the next level.

I enjoyed watching the interaction between Eric and Tinasha during our shoot in Sekeping Tenggiri. The way they teased and played with each other was a big plus for me! I love it with when couples have fun in front of my camera! Both Eric and Tinasha were in high spirits despite the rain and we managed to capture some good images!

Here’s some of our favourites from the set.

Lush Love: James & Rachel’s Pre-wedding

His first few lines to her was… “Could I loan a book from you?” They were students in TAR College… young, naive and open to love and adventure. One book opened the door to a series of meet ups, and soon, college life, became… well, shall I say… a lot more interesting to James and Rachel.

In reminiscence of their many hours together in college, James and Rachel decided to photograph their pre-wedding there. Wandering the corridors, visiting their usual haunts… it brought back many fond memories for the both of them.


As a contrast, we also shot at Sekeping Tenggiri. I love how the location is transformed into a magical forest in the shot below, taken by Weiming.
