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.
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.
It was such an unforgettable experience when asked to shoot someone I’ve came to know quite some years for his wedding proposal plan to his girlfriend. From airport to Cinema on the occasions, we’ve finally decided to do it on a outing journey in one of the most beautiful and popular spot of rice field scenery in Malaysia, and successfully kept her suspicion level at minimal. JC teaches in high school and he has amazing relationship with his students that most of his students want to be part of this so we get many help with much gratitude in our heart. Here’s a video of the whole journey of this amazing wedding proposal video.
