Seeing that I lived in Perth for a good three years of my life and get occasionally nostalgic for the life down under, I was excited to be back for a stint and attending the wedding of one of my best buds, Chris and his fiance Char. I was even more excited to be able to shoot a quick pre-wedding the week before the big day.

 

What I really like seeing from couples in front of the camera is when they are not shy in showing shades of their personalities in the midst of posing. The afternoon was never short of funny faces, stuck out tongues, and spirited hadokens from these two.

 

Char and Chris, thank you for inviting me to take your pre-wedding photos, it was a delight re-discovering old haunts with you guys.

YJ+Rach :: Madmen, A Playground, and Love all Around

Yujin and Rachael were the type of couple who are both equally invested in their wedding, and dearly wanted to include their whole bridal party of groom’s men and bridesmaids in all the fun. Therefore they thought that one way of doing it was to bring everyone together for a few photos that they can keep on their mantle in their living room for the many years they will spend together.

 

They drew inspiration from the era they grew up in, reflected in the mosaic tiled dragon playgrounds of old that were fast disappearing from our local neighbourhoods, as well as a certain Madmen cast photo from for that added “glam” factor complete with local flavour (ie: durians).

 

It was certainly a change of pace and challenge as I was one of the bridesmaids, therefore I had to set the shot up, as well as dart back and forth to make sure all was right, and of course sneak some couple shots in between. But I was so glad I did this shoot and achieved the results I got.

 

Thank you for letting me do this, Yujin and Rachael, I had such a blast.

Just a Peek :: The Portsdown Life ft. Amos + Jan (and other updates)

RANDOM NEWS FLASH! I am currently in Perth, Western Australia, and I will be here for a little more than a week with the main purpose of shooting a pre-wedding for a dear old friend of mine, as well as attend his weekend this weekend. While that’s happening, I am also taking the chance for some much needed R&R, visit friends, my old university and get re-acquainted with a city I used to call home.

 

Before I left, I was given the wonderful opportunity of capturing the quiet moments of Amos and Jan (and their dog, Pastel) at their residence in Portsdown. The old colonial buildings gave such a dreamy setting, with light bouncing off everywhere from the white walls, to the lush green of their surroundings. The idea was to approach this pre-wedding shoot with the phrase “a day in the life of” in mind. Something simple, unpretentious and natural, albeit with a slightly glamoured up wardrobe. Because as Jan said, “It’s not like we sit around in our living room reading in a gown and our formal wear.” I had to have a good chuckle at that.

 

So here is a sneak peek… and I have to say I am thoroughly enjoying the process of editing this session.
