So we dropped everything, the dog, the excel sheets, the raw files, the jpgs and for the first time, decided not to buy an Indonesia SIM card and left for Bali. It was a simple few days in a rather non-touristy seaside in the eastern side of Bali. It’s one of those ‘I don’t have an itinerary’ holidays.
Runaway kids are ok. As long they don’t pack up their stuff and run away (back in the days, it’s called “zao chu” or running away from home).
To be fair, he did complete the walk down the aisle before running back out. Maybe he just want to see the bride before the groom.
Before I left the room for the groom (haha yes!), I looked back and caught this fleeting moment which I really like.
The pretty chandeliers of Ritz. I used to call the Madonna’s bra. Now that Independence Day 2 is going to be released soon, I think they look like UFOs.
For me to remember moments like these. For the times when I want to look back at what I have done over the years.
No, I don’t usually do details in black and whites. Here we have an image where shadows of glasses and napkins are cast on the chairs by the evening sun.
Just before walking down the aisle. I like how the light gradually changes from light to shadows.
After a series of challenges, the groom was finally one door away from seeing his bride. For the mother of the bride, that also means the last door before her daughter leaves the family to start a new one.
The stars of the event, constantly being watched, being photographed and sometimes being photographed being watched.
With blessings from the Justice of the Peace, I got this shot. He married them and gave me his position for a clean shot. Give that man a Tiger!:)
Recently someone told me that it is every girl’s dream to get married at the St Regis. Honestly, I have never heard of the St Regis until they came to Singapore (I know I’m mountain tortoise like that). It is a beautiful hotel. But when it comes to having a first dance, I would think it is a dream come true to be able to have one’s first dance under the chandeliers of the Ritz Carlton.
Witnessing the landscape change from darkness to light is just one of the perks of shooting before sunrise at a location where you can actually see the sun rising. But given a choice, most (including the couples) would rather be in bed.
…off a mirror in front of the mirror. Top it up with a very harmonious combination of colors in the foreground.
The groom unveils the bride. I can’t help but notice the similarity in that movement with the picture in the background.
Because people make the wedding. I love the different expressions between the people in this image. Makes me wonder what the JP said.
While colored stones are not common among Singaporean brides, I have seen quite a number of brides in the last 2 years with Sapphire engagement rings (I think it’s the Kate Middleton effect). As for rubies, this must be the third that I have seen in a year. This one has great color.
Got a feeling that you want to say something, but not to the entire world? That’s how I feel sometimes.
It is said that it takes about 21 days to form a new habit. While blogging isn’t new, but I never really got to make it a habit to do it every day or even every other day. Let’s see if I can keep up with this. Even if I can do it for 21 days in a row, I have a feeling I can kick the habit in a day:D Anyway, for today, a photo I really like.
The moment before one succumb to their emotions. There was this uncomfortable tension, unlike those where people just hug and cry. The kind that makes you just want to look away. ‘要哭不哭’比哭还幸苦. This is what the right brain thinks. Read More
If not the most important, at least one of the most important. Smile. In the years of shooting weddings, the ones that makes me smile while going through the images are the ones that can smile or laugh like there’s no tomorrow. It’s contagious like that. Literally spreading the love.
It’s a brand new week and this is going to be eat week. Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 5 days of feasting. Here’s an image for the Monday. The stuff that I stop work to post because I like them.
Well, actually the wait is on my side. When it finally fell into place, I was making invisible fist pumps and chest thumps. The kind of images that makes me happy.
So damn hot these days… the rare times I am actually glad I am sitting behind the computer editing. It’s seriously burning out there…
It’s been a long long time since I touched this blog. No it’s not dead, I was just really busy and somewhat neglected this. Here’s an image I really like.
Today is the third day of 2016 and I’m feeling a little nervous, a little excited and quite looking forward to the rest of it.
Some say good things come in pairs. Better when intertwined. Bride holding her mother’s hands upon returning home for tea ceremony.
There is work and there is time for friends. There is also time for a beer.
