Tan’s family { Family portrait }

Eng Family collages

Summary: It’s a special day, it’s Father’s day. I’ve came to know Tan for more than 15 years back when we’re both studied in Canada. He has been a great friend and we still keep in touch regularly when we’re back in Malaysia. I’m excited when his family booked me for their family portrait session at my studio. There’s cake, drawings from his children and great fun at the studio to celebrate this very special Father’s day for my dear friend.

Summary: From engagement night to their 1st newborn arrival,  I’m so grateful once again to be a part sharing this important moment of Joshua and Lynn’s life, a party welcoming their newly added family member. Say hello to Renae Rose Wong, clearly inherited both her parents’ beauties but still too early to figure out inherited who’s personality. One thing for sure, you won’t miss out her always-big-eyes-wide-open-curious all the time with her surroundings & people that can’t resist getting her attention, including me. She also showed great interest every time my camera flashes, if she ever became a famous photographer one day, we all know who’s her early influences came from, haha.

Beautiful evening with great food and great atmosphere by the pool, it’s such a heart warming party with all their friends and relatives came together celebrating such special and joyous moment for Joshua and Lynn’s life.  Last note, I got to get myself one of this photo booth as it has became such a popular trendy thing to do for occasions like this.

2012 on a personal level was truly full of learning & blessing in life & work.

We are blessed to have an amazing journey with beautiful weddings & family portrait throughout the year. On a personal level, I felt overwhelmed with all the love I’ve able to witnessed via my clients and honoured being able to include my presence at their special moments of their life.

It’s the beginning of a new year and don’t I have many plans to look forward including my new studio in early February. I’m truly excited to share this joy with all of you.

Shairah + Amar Aziz {Solemnization}

Summary: 10.11.2012 Meet Shairah & Amar Aziz, the most daring couple up to date I’ve ever met. They are experts in skydiving, paragliding, scuba diving…etc. They would jump off the plane at over 10,00 feet high with pleasure and parachute of course. I knew Amar Aziz from one of my photography class and it was an honour when he asked me to shoot his wedding. It was my first experience shooting a Malay wedding and I am grateful to their patience guiding me through the details of a Malay wedding, I’ve learned a lot and fell in love with it : )

Let me share with you what I’ve learned:

Akad Nikah (marriage contract), which is the legal and religious part of the wedding. The groom signs the marriage contract and agrees to provide the bride with a mas kahwin (mahar,literally ‘marriage gold’ in form of money or goods or anything as requested by the bride). The mas khawin is a symbol to show that the men is willing and are prepared to build a family with the lady he chose to get married to.

The couple’s hands are dyed with henna during the berinai besar (great henna-ing) ceremony where the bride’s hair is also trimmed, eyebrows shaped and make-up applied by Mak Andam. Then the bride puts on her tudung (hijab or headscarf) to cover their hair and a selendang, or embroidered and beaded shawl over that. A crown is also placed on top of the shawl and the bride is ready for the Bersanding ceremony.

Bersanding (enthronement) begins with the groom’s march towards the bride’s home with friends, relatives, musicians and people waving bungamanggar (palm blossom). The main part of the bersanding involves the seating of the bridal couple on a dais and sprinkling them with yellow rice and scented water by family members, relatives and guests as a sign of blessing. Each guest will receive a Bunga Telur (egg flower), as a sign of fertility.

The couple are considered royalty for the day, where various royal customs are performed for them, including musicians playing court music a display of pencak silat.

Once again, congratulations to them !

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 : )

Family portrait series 2012 {outdoor theme}

I’ve been blessed doing quite fair amount of family portrait since the beginning of this year. Outdoor has always been my favorite theme for family portrait. I’m person that loves the connection of nature surrounding and my clients which I find it relaxes them during photo shoot. Yes, in return I get the natural expression bonding between their family members and “natural” has always been my photography style approach for portrait. The experience throughout these months is somewhat overwhelming in terms of how much amount of body energy and mind to put together throughout the shooting process but  the pleasure is all mine. The price of able to deliver a series of freeze moments of my clients spending their time as a family and the smile on their face to me is priceless.
