Christine + Tristan {Seam Reap, Angkor Wat}

Summary: About a month ago, I received an email request from Christine and Tristan that they’ve been backpacked throughout most part of south east asia countries for the past two months, nothing comes as exotic as the landscape of Angkor Wat and they wanted a photo session here, I couldn’t be more excited as Angkor Wat has always been one of my favourite place for photo shoot destination for clients or travel purposes. In our first meeting at their hotel, they were very outspoken and friendly couple which excites me throughout the entire photo shoot session. I love clients that outspoken, communicates and adventurous to try out suggestions from photographers. I remember there were one moment I’ve suggested to them that it would be nice if they could climb up there’s this one gorgeous looking big tree for a photo, before I could re-confirm with them, Christine has already made her moves climbing up the tree, and so is Tristan. Compare to most of Asian couples I’ve met, not many of them will show enthusiasm if you ask them to climb rocks / trees. I must say we were all very blessed that day with beautiful sunny day and manageable crowds at times of photo shoot. Other than our photo trip, I’m also very grateful they’ve recommended me to see the Phare Circus at Siem Reap. It was just truly an amazing experience. I’m glad to meet Christine and Tristan in this unforgettable photo journey with them and hope to see them again, probably visiting their new home in Boston in near future.

36th wedding anniversary celebration

Last week I was asked by one of my dear friend to photo shoot his parent-in-law celebrating of their 36th wedding anniversary together ,  I say yes simply the picture of two person being together for 36 years worth its weight in gold if not diamond (probably 50 years of wedding anniversary qualify for diamond) They have a big family compare to us with only my mom and my sister (R.I.P our beloved dad and loving husband) , so you can imagine the atmosphere are hustle and bustle in the restaurant we’re in (Double Tree by Hilton Hotel) including four of their grandchildren running around while one is just six month old still learning to crawl. I like big family, that’s about the size I want when I have my own family : )
