John and Cynthia

This is one of my favourite weddings to date. John and Cynthia are the nicest people i have taken photos of so far. Alway making sure i am well taken care of.

Well, such friendly and caring gestures certainly spur me on to go the extra mile for them!!! Cos AD wedding photography can be quite tiring, mentally and physically demanding. It really feels good that your clients are appreciative of your hard work.

John and Cynthia have also been very receptive with the suggestions i proposed to them. I had advised them earlier to do away with table to table shots.

I am ok with doing table-to-table shots, i usually go with the wish of my clients. But personally i dun really think those photos mean much, except recording the fact that who were present at the wedding. I would rather like my clients to mingle, chat and even fool around with their guests. It makes the dinner more causal, cosier and fun. I have seen a lot of couples having to rush through the dinner banquet, changing outfits ( 2 or even 3!) and trying to go through the round of photo taking for 20 - 30 tables. Once they have done that, it's time to say bye bye and they have to rush to the door to usher people off.

John and Cynthia opted for the more causal walk-about. I think they had quite a enjoyable time, it gave me lots of opportunity for candid shots that i like too.

John and Cynthia, thanks for giving the chance to share the happy moments of your wedding.

Commercial Shoots

This week has been busy, running around taking commercial shoots.

It's a joy working with professional models and performing artists. To change from poses to poses and "smile" infront of the camera come so easily to them. They "shine" infront of the camera.

Here're a few for NUS ENTERPRISE.

And for GE LIFE, promoting a show for KIDS.

A Princess and Her FROG Prince

Just done an engagment shoot with Stephen and Karen.

I always try to get my wedding clients to be involved in the conceptualising process of their photoshoot. My aim is being able get to know them better and to be able reflect a little bit of them in their wedding photos. It can be about their hobbies, their personalities, their favourite dating places, etc. I hope i can "create" photos that they can "FEEL" for and chat about, apart being the usual beautiful bride and handsome groom, in picturesque settings.

And for Karen and Stephen - I guess it's a fairy tale's wedding.

I always will remember the first time i met Karen. In the midst of the discussion, I asked her to envision what her wedding banquet would be like. She told me her dream wedding is to be able to "fly" down the aisle on a magic carpet. I couldn't help but laughed when i heard that. It's definitely a cool idea, but it would be quite difficult to execute.

What's more, when they turned up at my studio for the photo session. Karen and Stephen wore 2 amazingly cute T-shirts. She was the "PRINCESS" and her hubby - the "FROG PRINCE".

Will i be seeing a fairy tale wedding on her big day? Stephen - any idea how to make a carpet fly? I loan u the rag in my studio if you need one.

Louis and Joyce's Wedding

Here're some wedding shots of Louis and Joyce. I would say Louis is one of the most relax grooms i ever seen so far, very sporting and obliging in trying out every trick concocted by the AH YEEs!

That's the way every couple should be - Enjoy YOUR BIG DAY!!!! Well, it's once in a life time!!!
