Memories

Memories are made of these. Places, friends, life experiences and most importantly, family. Here, the father of the bride pops in to check on her. If you think about it, that was probably the last time he would get to do it.

Behind the scenes: I was taking a photo Read More

Forever alone

When it comes to environmental wedding portraits with simple lines, you can’t go very wrong with a lone tree. But there are times when I look at the tree and wonder… what it must have felt. Ok, I’m sure it’s happy.

I can't claim credit for this as they wanted this shot, so I did it. Good to learn something new!:)

Wedding of Kah Kheng and Kalyn

To start of my return to blogging (heh heh heh)… here’s a wedding from not too long ago. Lovely couple. I like them not only because they bought me beer Read More

5 months.

This blog seems to be dormant for as long as Mount Agung in Bali. I guess it’s time to wake it up a little and let it rumble. Nothing new, we’ve been busy. With work, family, both two legged and four legged ones. Read More

Watching about 40 japanese kids running in the rain playing soccer with their teachers is quite a sight. Teachers were fantastic in keeping the spirit high. Schooling win.

Let’s welcome ourselves into the ballroom!

I can’t remember the exact words, but I think it’s probably something like that. That’s how the script reads when you are both the MC and the wedding couple.

That call

There are days where you just have to make that call.

Let’s get married NAO!!!

Rules are for people who want to obey them.

When musicians get married

They can be like everyone else or do what musicians do. The groom used to play for a band as a bassist and decided an open mic concept. His friends did not need further invitation to get on stage. I haven’t heard Smells like Teen Spirit live for ages and this was superbly delivered.

Every little thing

Yes main events are important, but to me, what’s more interesting are these little moments. If you remember Every Little Thing (ELT), you are probably as old as me:D

Geometry of drinking

I believe the more you tilt your head back, the happier you are. That’s what I feel when I have a beer bottle in hand. Maximum happiness is achieved when cup/bottle is perpendicular to the ground.

Be like waterfall

Yup, tears and all. We have seen them from all ages and genders. Mostly emotion related. A few were triggered by cutting onions during games. I like how the tears were trapped on the veil itself in this image.

A birdie. Ok, an eagle.

To be honest, I didn’t think through it when I took this. I just thought it was funny and anything with symmetry usually works well with me. It just occurred to me that hey… that’s a pretty good one:D

A sneak peak of April

April was a month that I was looking forward to. A short break to climb a mountain and more importantly, to see the results of our weeks of training for the climb. Here’s a picture of the crater lake of Mount Rinjani taken right after last light.

The early birds

2 in front of the camera and a few more behind it, including me. Going to a shoot later than 730 is almost non negotiable for me. My plan is simple, go out early, get some nice soft light, watch the sunrise, enjoy the cool weather and get back before 930am for a nice toast and 2 half boiled eggs. Work done before most even started. Why not right?:)

An adventure at the right time

Like many photographers, I’m a geek. Technical down to the details. But when it comes to natural light, it’s mostly luck. Read More

Be like still water

The kind of look (just like still water) whenever clients ask me the timing we meet for Pre Wedding shoot, until they realize they have to wake up way earlier for make up (and the expressions turned into geysers). I’m not exactly an early riser, but if I know waking up early will likely result in better images and experience, I will definitely do it.

PW_20161004_2405

Walk on water

For lack of a better title. 10 panadols and plenty of sleep later, I’m feeling much better. Now, the cough has to go. Overall, happy with the progress of work despite taking longer rests than usual. Let’s see how long I can last with this blogging habit. Going to post about the Rinjani trip once I catch up with the backlogs.

Be like water

Drink more water. At least that’s for me. Down with some kind of viral flu. Let’s hope water will do something good.

Eyes on me

Those little moments that happen during the preparation phase of the wedding. If you look hard enough, there will be someone looking at you.

Nothing says I love R-you like nailart:)

Father and daughter moment

It’s all in the hands.

Icons

Probably some of the most iconic buildings in Singapore. Any visitor heading to the airport from town will not miss this. These are one of the many condos that stands across the Singapore river from the Central Business District.

Empathy

Sometimes, we feel for them, but laugh behind the camera… It’s true (insert Trump’s voice).

WD_20161112_0569

No, we are not done yet. We are just getting started.

It’s been 2 new years since I last posted. Wedding season, traveling, Mika, friends, new toys and amazing weather (storms, amazing light, cool weather). These things keep me busy and I’m not complaining. Read More

The three musketeers

In the midst of the wedding season, we do not neglect the little furry ones. Here’s one from 2 weeks ago at West Coast dog run. Yoshi, Bae Bae and of course Mika.

The busy months

Been really busy over the past few weeks and even more so in the weeks to come. Almost every thing demands attention and it’s really putting my prioritization algorithm to the test. That said, we always find time. Now, back to blogging.

Lightning Limpeh

I have been putting this off a bit, wondering if I should start posting non wedding related stuff on this blog. I used to do it so often with my older blog and had mixed feedback. Some love it while some find it hard to navigate when they come here specifically to look for wedding related posts. Read More

A little love on Friday

The kind of image for rainy evening. Hopefully the weather will play nice tomorrow.

It’s show time!

Definitely not cartoon network. Probably inspired the kids to do their korean drama during dinner (a few posts back).

When all you have is one chair

*in gardening mode* I’m just thinking… how nice if a staghorn fern is in place of the bird’s nest fern at the back. Read More

A sleepy Monday post

Browsing through some of the images I did a couple of weeks back puts a smile on my face.

Sundays

What do we do on Sundays if we are not shooting? Hunting unicorns… or something similar:D

Art of hiding emotions

I am a chinese and my family are typical chinese. We know too well how to hide our emotions in front of others. The art of masking emotions is like spraying air freshener. Read More

Exit

No tears, no hugs, but one can still tell. Because typical chinese parents.

Love drama

When left alone, kids and their drama.

Mondays

Monday is the most awesome day of the week when you have deadlines to meet. That’s why I’m happiest on Mondays.

Can somebody have a durian themed wedding?

After a long shoot on Saturday, I rewarded myself with a nice drive up to Tangkak, Malaysia for some nice durians (although we were told the season there has just ended). Read More

In my line of work, I sometimes end up taking pictures of notable people in the society. Most of the time, I may not even know who they are or what they did. Today, I took a few minutes off to dig into my archives so I can relive some moments in their life. One of the many who built the building, has left the building (last night) - 23rd August 2016

Getting ready

The difference between a bride getting ready compared to the groom.

Please mind the gap

A light moment between the bride and her father before walking down the aisle.

after months... i think i'm catching up with my backlogs. i can see the light already. i intend to take the day off, get away from the computer screen, go outdoors, enjoy the sun, maybe to the beach without my phone... then the heavens spoke... 'get back to work!' - 22nd July 2016

Radio Ga Ga (the time before mobile phones)

I can’t stop watching this. Such amazing atmosphere. Something that you never see now. Not because we can’t have such a big crowd at a concert, not because Freddie Mercury isn’t around anymore (well partly), Read More

Framed

Found a spot of reflection and I can’t help but frame them up.

Reason to smile

I love to see old people smile (no, not the ones in the picture:D). During a wedding, the grandmother of the bride came up to me and asked me why I kept trying to make smile when I’m taking a picture of her. I explained to her that there is no reason for her not to smile. Read More

It’s midweek!

And I’m halfway through the set. It’s been a really enjoyable week thus far. Wish I had more time, but I won’t complain. Here’s one for midweek:)

Last burst

Photographing an assignment is a little like running a marathon. Not that I know how it feels, so maybe a 2.4km run. The last shot before the light fades away is like the last 100m dash. Read More

Somebody to Love

There’s not reason for posting this. Last night this song just came to my mind… and it has been there since. I guess it’s better than ‘somebody’s gonna hurt real bad':D
