Third of May, two thousand fourteen. That's the date I got married. It's been crazy times for the past 5 months preparing for the wedding in the run up to the big day.
Even crazier was the fact that I attempted to do my own pre-wedding photography! This "strenuous" exercise took place during 3 separate occasions in 3 different locations starting early December 2013.
After Nigel & Theresa's eventful and exciting wedding ceremony held at their homes last week, I returned to photograph their wedding dinner reception at Passion Road restaurant for a crowd of about 200 guests.
This event yielded another more than 1,000 images but I shall let the small selection of pictures showcased here do the talking.
The first wedding photography assignment of the year started off with a big bang that saw the fun and playful unification ceremony between Nigel and Theresa at both their homes. From loud fire crackers and lion dance to even Haka dances and multiple levels of Hunger Games-style of gruelling obstacles for pitiful groomsmen, it was truly a momentous occasion.
There were over 1,000 high quality images made that day but I'd very much like to share only some of the highlights here.
It was quite a moment's notice to be shooting this pre-wedding photography session for Jocelyn & Wilson but I was not about to let this pass despite lack of preparation. In fact, it was a good opportunity to exercise some creative muscles as to how best to photograph this lovely young couple.
The pre-wedding photography session was held at my boutique studio at Petaling Jaya. I had in mind before hand, two different "looks"or theme for lack of a better word.
Right after I completed the wedding luncheon at Noble Banquet, my partner and I drove up north to Penang at about 4 pm. Unfortunately, due to an unexpected road accident along the NSE nearing Penang, we only managed to arrive at 10 pm! A gruelling 6 hours journey!
We put up for the night at The Northam All Suite Penang along Gurney Drive. Sleep-deprived, we got up early the next day to make the 2-min drive just round the corner to the famed Eastern & Oriental Hotel.
