Summary : When we arrived on our client’s house for her wedding day video shoot, I almost lost my direction in it. It was such a big house and gorgeous settings for the wedding. Of course we were also blessed with one of the finest weather throughout our client’s entire wedding day. Bambie and Ian are such a nice couple , being polite and truly down to earth person. This has to be one of the unforgettable elegant wedding experiences for me and my team. We are so thankful to be able to capture such a gorgeous wedding.
Story : It’s 12,000 km apart between Malaysia and Finland , and it’s 9,000 km apart of India and Finland, but both of my client Carol (Malaysia) and Tuomas (Finland) are both standing in front of the altar today giving their wedding vows to start a family of their own, a new chapter of them together. The magic of how fate works to have two person meet, fall in love, marry and start a family never failed to amazes me, perhaps only the Almighty knows how it works.
The lovely couple asked me a favour for some of their profile shoot before their reception starts. When I knew they are musicians from Britain that travel with their orchestra members around the world for performances, I am honoured to be their official photographer on this important night to them, especially to Sarah. It was a night specially dedicated to the remembrance of her late dad by flying all the way from Britain and to host their wedding reception here with relatives that still lives in Malaysia. I especially love the part they perform wholeheartedly in front of their relatives members. It’s one of the most beautiful music pieces I’ve heard live. It’s a beautiful night and I truly enjoyed it too.
Summary: One high school mates reunion dinner, which was long overdue for 20 years since our graduation, kept us busy this past 2 years keeping in touch with one another and now to cover one of my high school mates of her big wedding day. Throughout the day, I felt not just photographer but more of an important friend to her and making sure all of the beautiful details of this very special day of hers are all exquisitely fine captured. The pressure felt on my shoulder definitely more than the weight of both my cameras but all in a good way and a definitely meaningful portfolio to our work !
Summary: What a weekend to spend with a group of passionate wedding & portrait photographers at the peak of Cameron Highland, Malaysia. Daran Wu (Taiwanese renowned wedding photographer) and I met last year when I was in Taiwan and we both came up with the idea of why not gathered together photographers whom we know from our respective country and passionate about learning new knowledge under a workshop with Daran and myself as the speakers. At the end of the 2 days 1 night workshop, we are both glad to received they’re satisfied and happy feedback throughout the trip. Most importantly, the openess and sharing our ideas makes us all became great friends to be with despite the shortness of time we’ve spend together. They’ve shared their short-coming and strength in their photography and we’ve shared ours. There’s nothing to hide in the topics we’ve shared among us during and after the workshop. We’ve even stayed till late midnight at the hotel they stayed in KL after our trip back from Cameron Highland purely discussing the differences of their wedding photography industry with ours. To me, that’s what photography really means, which is to meet people through journey & experiences and not the view finder on our camera and to me it carries a much greater meaning and greater weight to what we do as a photographer.
It’s our first experience and we’ve learned a lot and definitely there are rooms for improve, but overall I’m happy with the result. We’ve received positive comments of our professional talents including the make-up artist, models, the transportation arrangements, accommodation, sponsors of professional lighting equipment, we give our highest appreciation to their support we’ve received to this event ! We’re definitely doing this again next year and better !
Summary: Meet Mei Ling and Duncan, absolutely most adorable couple I’ve met so far. The first time we met over at our studio, it was to my surprise how close Mei Ling stay. It’s 5 minute walk from her place to my studio. I was truly honoured over their appraisal of my work after their research of many photographer’s work on wedding photos. It was a beautiful wedding ceremony held a club house with open barbecue concept. My pride being their official photographer for their big day went above the cloud when I received so many kind appraisal comments on my work with their ROM photos. You have no idea how much that meant to me , to have immediate praising of your work being their chosen photographer on their big day.
P.S. Thanks to the bride/groom couple even brought me a bottle of red wine (Spain) in appreciation of my work that night
Summary: It was a great honour to be appointed as the photographer of Mr. Mah’s second son’s wedding day at Taiping. Although I’ve came to know Eric’s dad first before I’ve met the couple, I have to admit certain nervousness inside me during the 2 1/2 hour drive to Taiping to meet them. It is rather first time experience for me to meet the couple on the night before their wedding for the first time. I usually meet with my wedding clients weeks before their big day for better understanding of them. However, my nervousness soon disappear when I was greeted with their warm hospitality to me. I felt not like a photographer on job but rather as a guest to their wedding. They are such kind people. They’ve also arranged great place for me to rest for the night with the window view across the famous Taiping park. The big day started with great clear sky in the morning, it was beautiful throughout the day. Taiping is a small town but its history of heritage fascinates me, especially with all the buildings that is left from its colonial era still remain. I always find people from small town such as this tend to be more happier than the actual couple that is getting marry. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good thing. At least from the viewfinder of a photographer’s camera, a lot of great moments to captured. The bride is beautiful and I can see why the groom is such a sweetheart to her especially from their proposal video shown at the dinner, it was sweet and I don’t see how it will fail its mission of melting the heart to whom being proposed. It’s certainly one of the wedding to remember in my list of favourite wedding in year 2013.
