Overseas Prewedding at Austrlia, Perth – Clarence & Rowena

Hello all,

As some of you “Likers” on facebook might know, I recently came back from an overseas Prewedding trip. I went with two Couples to Perth to shoot there Engagement/Prewedding shoot there and boy was it a trip!!

Needtheless to say, Perth is beautiful.. Gorgeous clear blue skies, cooling weather, wildflower carpets and all.. What more can a photographer ask for?

I’m sharing Clarence & Rowena’s photo today, I have yet to go through them all.. but here’s some of my very classic favorites.. We went all around Perth, the signature Boathouse, King’s Park, the Murdoch Uni, beaches etc etc etc. 🙂

Please enjoy the pictures peeps. :))

{Maternity} Yvaine & Vince’s 1+1 = 3

I seldom get to shoot Maternity shoot I must say it’s a refreshing break..

Yvaine & Vince actually booked me for their preweddings’, but due to some unforeseen happenings (bouts of sickness and whatsnot), we postpone the shoot, and here we are! Some 7 or 8 months later, doing their maternity shoot. Right at the beautiful Singapore Botanic Garden..

I had seen alot of preggy ladies and I must say Yvaine is most radiant.. It was so easy shooting her.. Thanks guys for making my job super fun and easy!! haha. here’s some of my favorite.. enjoy!

Hendrikje & Martin – A Day in Singapore

I shot their Engagement photos a few months back but had to wait till after the Big Day to reveal their photos.. (congrats you guys!! Blissful marriage!)

A Day in Singapore revolve around the concept of, well you guessed it, a day in Singapore doing what the couple love most.

We visited the Botanic Garden and had a picnic there, we played mahjong there.

We wore the cheongsam and did a shoot at Chinatown, we ordered chicken rice at Maxwell Food Centre.. Man it was one fun day!

And yes~ We did a Sari-Shoot at Little India where we were treated like Celebrity! The amount of people waving at us (ok, at Hendrikje) and requesting for photos.. Unbelievable.

Of course, Hendrikje & Martin are nothing short of amazing and here are some of my fav shots. Enjoy!!

How to use Shortcodes

There are quite a few shortcodes available in KingSize WordPress.

Most of which can be seen on this demo “Shortcodes” page.

Shortcodes are designed to make adding certain options and features a little less difficult and time consuming sifting through code. (more…)


How to create Sliders

Using Sliders can now be used on all and any pages/posts. In previous versions of KingSize WordPress, this was restricted to only the homepage – hooray for updates!

To learn more about Homepage Background usage, checkout our Tutorial on “Background Sliders and Background Videos” for the purpose of homepage usage. In this tutorial though, we will be specifically discussing how you create the Slider Items and how they can be used throughout the website. (more…)


Background Slider & Background Videos

In the release of version 4, we have introduced not only the Video Background capabilities, but a new and improved Background Slider script using the ever popular Supersized.

With previous versions of KingSize WordPress, we had a Theme Option where you would upload your Backgrounds and sort them there. In the release of version 4, we have created a new post-type that is specific to the Slider. It is here you will now create, manage and organize your slider images and jammed with a lot of new options and features for your usage. (more…)


How to create Portfolios

The purpose behind Portfolios is to add multiple projects with the use of additional details and essentially to help showcase your work.

Portfolios can serve many purposes, such as:

  1. Showcase your past and current Projects.
  2. Showcase your photography sessions.
  3. Showcase your traveling / adventures.
  4. Outside the box usage: Shopping Carts.
  5. Outside the box usage: Product Display.

The possibilities are limited only to your imaginations.

Often we’re asked, “What is the difference between Galleries and Portfolios” and we’ve created a specific post that explains that in detail.

Portfolios are quite simple to use and we’ll explain how now. (more…)


Galleries vs. Portfolios

It’s a commonly question we are asked:

[blockquote]What’s the difference between Galleries and Portfolios?[/blockquote]

Galleries

These are single page collections of images that when clicked will open in lightbox to display the images you’ve chosen to upload / attach to that Page/Post. There is no pagination and you cannot assign links to Gallery images so when clicked opens in a new page. At least not when using one of our 5 customized galleries in KingSize. (more…)


How do I Update?

Updates can be as easy or hard as you want to make it. We say that because there are a variety of ways a person can update the version of there template and if you follow these instructions, we’ll try and make it as painless and as successful as possible. (more…)


How to create a Gallery

In our original release of KingSize WordPress, galleries were restricted to pages only and this hampered some of our buyers flexibility – for that we apologize. In our latest release, version 4, we’ve created a new post type custom to the galleries usage called “Gallery”. It’s sole purpose is to house the galleries you wish to create and allows you to then use a “Shortcode” to call them into various areas of your website (ie., Posts, Pages, Portfolios, etc). (more…)


How to create a Blog

Greetings & Salutations!

Creating a blog page couldn’t be any easier and following these steps you should walk through the process with no troubles at all.

  1. First log into your WordPress Dashboard.
  2. Now go to “Pages” and create a new page.
  3. Once inside pages, give your page a title such as “Blog“.
  4. To the right of the content area, find “Page Attributes“.
  5. From the drop-down, select the “Blog Template“.
  6. Once the blog template is selected, hit “Publish“.

Now that’s it. You’ve created a “Blog” page. This page template you’ve selected called “Blog” is designed to pull ALL ‘posts’ into the blog page. So when creating a new post, that will now automatically be published to that page you’ve just created. (more…)


KaiXiang & LiTing – Dreams are made because I love You

Here’s a simple but very “classic-ly” Oh Dear Styled Engagement shoot for this weekend.

Of KaiXiang & LiTing taken right in our beautiful Botanic Garden.

Sure, some brides might opt for newer attractions ’cause Botanic Garden has been “shot to death”..

But to me, there’s something about Botanic’s lush green, soft lights. Not too manicured but just right.

and did you know, Botanic was actually founded in 1859? That’s actually like 153 Years. Vintage enough for me at any rate.

Okay, enff preaching about my favourite garden.. Here are the pictures. As usual, enjoy!


The Perfect Husband – Rachel & WeiKeong

So here Im posting again.. I know, Im trying my best to break the blog-drought and would be posting more! Unless I got swamp by work, but hey that’s a good thing!

Yesterday I had a session with Rachel & WeiKeong, and a part of it was taken at their beautiful home.
I think that’s so beautiful, because it’s where you would be spending time together, relaxing and sharing all the good times..

Am sooo glad and thankful for all the trust they put in me and hence resulted in this visual.. a favorite of mine.
Partly because it’s so Tongue-in-cheek (note where the vacuum is), alright it’s unintentional.. but just turns out this way..
Mostly is because I believe a new-age husband should be helping out with the housework chores instead of lounging watching TV..
WeiKeong seems to know very well how to manage all the chorse. FIVE stars!!

Again, thanks guys for ‘allowing’ me this. more pictures of this session soon!!!
