Jevan to Alithea

“I promise to love and care for you, and I will try in every way to be worthy of your love.
I will always be honest with you, kind, patient and forgiving.
I promise to try to be on time.
But most of all, I promise to be a true and loyal friend to you.
I love you.”

Amy and Russell to one another

“You are my lover and my teacher,
You are my model and my accomplice,
And you are my true counterpart.
I will love you, hold you and honor you,
I will respect you, encourage you and cherish you,
In health and sickness,
Through sorrow and success,
For all the days of my life.”

Eugene & Jessie Actual Wedding Day @ My Awesome Cafe Singapore

Warm, intimate & minimalistic are the 3 words I’d use to describe photographing this occasion. I vividly remember capturing an abundance of  laughters, hugs and kisses that day!

The highlight of the evening was the heartwarming and articulated speech from Eugene to his beloved wife and loved ones. He definitely brought about a lot of joy warm feelings and probably a tear or two to everyone in the cafe.

I recalled Jessie saying to me to chill and have some food and drink on multiple occasions but I just didn’t want to stop taking photos of her dear guests who were clearly enjoying themselves.

Some people say every day is Valentine’s Day if you’re in love. I guess the same can be said about a couple’s wedding day if they were to assure each other with words and commitment on a daily basis!

Shaun & Adeline Pre Wedding Destination Bridal Photography Tasmania Australia

While we were driving up the mountain prior to sunrise, we certainly didn’t expect fog to envelope the surroundings! Interestingly, the fog brought about a certain mystical feel to the set of photos. It’s always a good thing to have variations for destination wedding photography. The strangers we bumped into were all so friendly congratulating the couple along the way and a group of bikers gladly posed for us upon request too!

Tasmania is a beautiful but vast island and we wanted to travel to as many places as possible. While most photographers would avoid photographing outdoors during mid day, we were very fortunate the sun hid in the clouds from time to time for us to avoid harsh light at the vineyard and bridge. Our schedule didn’t allow us to make use of only sunrise and sunset and we needed to move from place to place relatively quickly. I was glad I got the opportunity to photograph this couple with years of experience to help me out as a lot of quick thinking was required to make things work most of the times.

Looking at the photos, I think the couple is really blessed. They had beautiful sunrise, sunset, fog, rainbow, waves, strong winds and interesting architectures for their photos. Over the few days, though dead tired, we got to enjoy some beautiful parts of Australia which I believe will be sorely missed whenever we reminisce our time there. All the planning, hard work, enduring of myriad weather conditions and resources spent were all so worthwhile. To top it off, I got to know two lovely people better and I believe the bond will last a long time! 😀

Shaun & Adeline Pre Wedding Destination Bridal Photography Sydney Australia

Believe it or not, this set of photos nearly didn’t happen.

When Adeline wanted to engage my services, I suggested photographing them on Mt Bromo knowing her love for hiking and nature in general! Fortunately and unfortunately, the couple didn’t settle for Mt Bromo due to safety concerns but went for breathtaking Tasmania instead.

Initially, the plan was to just tour Sydney like any tourists would do but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to photograph an iconic city like Sydney! So on the same day we landed, I went scouting for locations I shortlisted while in Singapore. Due to the lack of sleep and pushing myself a little more even though I was feeling unwell, I could hardly move after the session ended. As I look through the photos again and again and the review written by Shaun for me, I felt everything I did was worthwhile.

Caution! DO NOT open your mouths too widely for whatever reason in Sydney as a fly might just zoom into it. If you must know, yes one did fly into mine!

Melvin & Clarissa Pre Wedding Bridal Photography Singapore

Melvin & Clarissa approached us for a short casual shoot where a fusion of photography and cinematography took place. On the day of the wedding, we saw a slideshow of pre-wedding photos taken by renatus and another photographer prepared by the couple. To my surprise, my cinematographer Melvin (yes, cinematographer and groom has the same name) pointed out renatus’ photos appeared a lot more on the slideshow. We were shamelessly proud of that and were overwhelmed with joy as the couple appreciated our works and thanked us during their speech on their wedding day. Couples like them motivate us to go further and better. We love our jobs 😀

Stephen & Kiki

This wedding has got everything: Fun people, a magician, lovely location, great decorations, perfect weather and most of got my heart.

Stephen and Kiki are such genuine and easy-going people Kelvin and I had a breeze working with them (and their families!).

I love that everything was really laid much so that Kiki even had some time to help out with the decorations at the reception table herself! I love that they were not overly worried about things potentially going wrong on that day and just enjoying being to celebrate with their friends and families.

Most of all though, I love both their speech. After 7 years or so of working on weddings, one thing that always still gets me is a vow from the heart 🙂

Jason & Melissa

Hello! It has been a while since I get something up (I have been very selective about what to put up and what to keep for show during meet-ups) and I am excited to share this Same Day Edit 🙂

Jason and Melissa had 6 sets of sword bearers during their first march-in and asked if I could film it and include the portion into the edit and be shown before their second march-in.

Challenge accepted.

Of course, this takes careful time management (and experience)! The main challenge is working on this wedding alone without a minion, I have to make sure I know what I am doing each step of the way and to manage the timing of everything perfectly. You may see me rushing back and forth during this time. It is all very unglamorous but I enjoy the adrenaline 🙂
