Pre-Wedding: Ken & Cynthia

By 26/10/2008 12 Comments

Cynthia has been an old school friend of mine since I was like 3 feet high. (Ok not that it makes much difference, since I’m only 5 feet tall right now). We have been really good friends since school and have gone through so much together. I knew Ken when I came to KL to work – the first time I met him, I was in the Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC) children’s church. He was there to volunteer. I remember him wearing a earring on one side, looking tough and macho, definitely not a person I’d imagine to have a soft heart for children. But ever since then, I’ve gotten to know him a lot better, and I can safely say that Ken is definitely a caring, thoughtful man. Perfect match for Cynthia, who’s always fun and exciting to be with.

So we headed back to Malacca (where Cyn and I are from) for this photo shoot. Ken is from Penang, but, sorry, it’s going to be a one-sided story for this pre-wedding shoot. We had loads of fun doing silly things together. Congratulations on your wedding, and am looking forward to shooting it this 8th of November!

When we were taking this shot below, a young-ish girl passed by us and said that her brother did the graffiti on the wall. She was a tour guide and along with her were a group of French tourists. Perhaps we should have told her that her brother spelt Malacca wrongly!

I absolutely love this little mini. Alex and I found it when we came to Malacca for a recce a few weeks ago, and were so delighted when we spotted it parked in the same location again on our shoot day!

Both Ken and Cyn love the water – a year back, Cyn surprised Ken underwater on a dive trip by unveiling a little banner that she had made for him. It was his birthday and boy, was he surprised!

Thanks for being silly with me!

    Fav for your parents to frame…the one with “A3” on top of Ken’s head.

    Personally like the ones with the yellow car except what on earth you 2 were getting cozy in some Malacca backlane?? Also like the one next to Ken’s Bruce Lee shot…the (ahem) hot one, looks like an Ang Lee pic!

    Can’t wait to see the big day ones…
