Wedding at Quat Quatta, Melbourne: Benny & Esther

I am always really honored whenever a couple decides to fly my team and I to another country to photograph their wedding. It really is a big deal, because it meant that they chose you over every other vendor they found in that city. I was also really excited when I found out their wedding location – a beautiful Victorian mansion named Quat Quatta. I love the classic interior and exteriors! What was special about this wedding were all the loving, detailed planning that Benny and Esther did for their wedding. I love the turquoise colour theme, the Volkswagen Kombi that was so chic, and also how they incorporated their love of coffee into the wedding with a coffee mixing ceremony! Even their wedding ring ‘pillow’ was a unique book!

The dinner decorations at the Sandringham Yacht Club were beautiful with the huge arch above the main table (it had mandarin oranges in it!). We were also blown away at the delicious looking wedding cakes, not one, but three! Thank you, Benny and Esther, for bringing us all the way to Melbourne, Australia. Wishing you years of marriage bliss and may the honeymoon continue years and years from now!

Wedding at Hatten Hotel, Malacca: Weng Yue & Hui Yen


People say the secret to a long life is laughter… and the secret to a long-lasting relationship is laughing together. We’re pretty sure this will be true for Weng Yue and Hui Yen!

They are like two peas in a pod that fit together so cozily. Each different in their own ways but yet sharing a solid and grounded relationship built on trust. They liken their relationship to a blue-chip stock… with very little fluctuations and steady growth! That shows just how down-to-earth they both are.

They met in university in Malacca and maintained a long-distance relationship for a number of years after their studies before Hui Yen relocated to Singapore to be with Weng Yue. They have not looked back since. Life together is comfortable, with very few “high volume” moments. They are self-proclaimed non-conformists (but not intentionally!) and that is part of what keeps their comfortable life exciting, we suspect.

The wedding was held in the beautiful town of Malacca, where Weng Yue hails from. His mum is Nyonya so there were lots of Nyonya elements incorporated in the wedding. This easy-going couple made the team feel very much at home with them and were game to pose even under the hot sun with no complaints. Thank you Weng Yue and Hui Yen, for your kind hospitality in Malacca. We wish you both a lifetime of fun, happiness and adventure in your marriage!

Managing Expectations About Photography on Your Wedding Day

The celebration of marriage is but one little chapter in the tapestry of life. Each story is different but every bit as meaningful as the story of the stranger next to you. It is what makes our lives so interesting to others! When it comes to the chapter leading up to the happily-ever-after part, it is only natural to desire that the heart and essence of every second of the wedding be frozen in time.

This is where the bride and groom come to expect great things from their wedding photographers. But the biggest cause of disappointments when it comes to expectations results from a lack of communication. We’re here to set the record straight and ensure the expectations are reasonable.


1. Getting Ready Photos

We suggest giving us at least an hour to photograph the bride and groom as they separately get ready for the wedding. We like to add some detailed shots of the dress, shoes, cufflinks, rings and invitations. It’s also a good time to capture individual shots once the bride or groom is all ready, plus some photos with close family members and the bridal party.

St Regis Kuala Lumpur & Dato’ Sri Bernard Chandran: Weddings Redefined

We were honoured to be invited as a wedding vendor to The St Regis Kuala Lumpur’s Weddings Redefined event recently. We had booths next to big names such as The Photoz, Manggis Production, Reeka Temor, and Kayangan Gallery. We were stunned with the decorations done by the St Regis wedding team, their unique 270 degree video mapping screen spanning almost the entire ballroom, and of course, the exquisite bridal collection by Dato’ Sri Bernard Chandran. Whether you are the whimsical type, a lover of all things vintage, or a contemporary bride that shuns white, you can find it here in his first bridal collection.


The ballroom was transformed into a fashion show runway. Below, a photo with our studio manager, Yu Ming at our humble little booth.

Wedding Video Highlight: Mohd Faez & An-Nuura

Interestingly, we got to know Mohd Faez’ mother, Tengku Puteri Zahariah through one of our photographers, Jennifer who sometimes moonlights as an Uber driver. We were hired as Tengku’s personal videography team for the dinner reception at Sime Darby Convention Centre. She was crucial in planning the entire wedding dinner reception, and naturally, wanted everything captured meticulously. The team met the couple on the wedding day itself and we’re pleased to be part of such a beautiful occasion.
