Bridal Shoot

Yusoff & Sharifah’s Surprise Engagement Party

This is the sweestest proposal shoot I had ever done. Everything was so carefully planned and beautiful. Seriously, I wanted to cry sometime during the shoot itself.

It was Sharifah’s birthday and Yusoff secretly booked a yacht, invited her friends along and even hired a wedding gown for her. We got her to close her eyes while Yusoff walked her to the yacht.

The sun although set a wee bit early, but the night was still magical enough.
Yusoff proposed to Sharifah just as the fireworks well off.. with 99Roses nonetheless!!

Like a real-life fairytale lah!!

Ok abit from my side would be, it’s my first time up on a private yacht, I was uber excitied and nervous at the same time. I wont lie and say it’s a breeze to shoot (although it was very windy on board).. The yacht was bummy, wet and slippery and I had to perform.. Well, at the very least, Thanks the gods I am not sea-sick-prone.. But luckily for me, Both Sharifah and Yusoff were extremely not-camera-shy! So I can pretty much say we Rocked the Shoot.

Now for photos….

Lilian & Jason – Scientists’ Love Formula

I shot Lilian & Jason a few months back, when the KTM track was still around..
Saddly, the tracks now has been demolised and (send back to malaysia?) the place now is just a flat piece of land. Sigh.. ={

Anyway, enjoy this series from Lilian & Jason, who are both super brainy scientists! Hence the mini-shoot in lab and lab-coats. =D!











David & Melissa’s – What are Words when it’s Love

It was my first time shooting at MBS area, yes I know.. sloow! In fact, it was my second time there only! Because normally I prefer shooting at greeny places or buildings that are older, and I thought MBS might be too flashy and new. Boy was I wrong. I love the result of these pictures, plus I think the HotPink gown really adds a pop to all these photos. What do you think?

And.. I must had repeated myself countless of times, but i always always try to tell a story when shooting preweddings and Engagement. The last location for this series was shot at the very place this lovely couple knew each other. Learning guitar.. so please enjoy this series.. What are Words when it’s Love.

Jus & Alvin – Love is Fun and Goofy!

I had the pleasure of shooting Justie and Alvin’s part2 Prewedding. This fun and wacky Couple took part1 of their shoot in Taiwan, so they wanted something more fun, less serious and also with their doggie (you can hardly pack a puppy into a suitcase can you?)





^ I thought this picture is hilarious. Puppy was all like -__-‘ “Are we done yet?”

^ (This was actually just a Test-Shot.. Meaning I was testing the settings on my camera.. But i love the turn out.. slightly outta focus, but enough to see the elegant smile.. )










^ Blown Away. Literally.


Keith & Peggy – Decided on Forever.

There’s one of my ‘favouritest’ set (is there such a word?) of Prewedding. It was a pretty boiling HOT day but hey the sun was golden! I had such fun.

Well, the shoot would not be half as successful without the couple trusting me, and I think another half goes to the assistants.. they are like the unseen Heros of any shoots. Helping to fluff the gown, blow the bubbles and maybe even chasing away people who are blocking us. So a small tip to brides hoping to have a fun and easy prewedding or Engagement shoot, get one of your Bff or a sister along to help~ She can help to adjust any falling straps or hold the bouquet or just be there to help you feel at ease. =D (of course I help I will with the falling straps too. =P)

meanwhile, as usual, enjoy the pictures peep. =D


^ Tiny Detail tells a story too.. every petal, every smile and the Gown’ delicate patterns..



^ Beautiful Expressive Eyes.





^ This is my favourite-est-est photo in the whole series. I shall try my best to explain..

 I love how the whole background looks like a set from my childhood fairytale stories. No matter the age, I guess a girl still do cherish those precious tales. So yes, im not the least bit abash to say I feel this feels like a English Palace Garden, with our Princess and Prince ‘s Happily Ever After! =}


here’s something a little different from the usuals.. Sparkles Flying.. Quite literally!





And lastly, here’s me and the Couple.. Oh and the ‘Unseen Heros’ of the shoot, the assistants. =D Big Thanks..

Oh also, I had made a tiny behindTheScene video of this lovely shoot on my Facebook, You might be interested in seeing how ‘Bubbles are Made’. Click HERE!


Lyanna & Colin – rewinding & forwarding the TimeBar

I had the pleasure of shooting Colin & Lyana a while back.
I like to think of the shoot as rewinding the TimeBar because we had a shanghai theme where Lyanna don the most gorgeous QiPao. I think to carry out a QiPao, not only do you need a slender frame, there’s a certain feel to it too. Womanly? Graceful? Whatever magica it is, I think Lyanna brought it out very well. Colin is great too of course. Heh.

Forwarding the timebar, we went back to where the couple knew each other. NUS..
So here’s their very lovely and serene Engagement Shoot. Enjoy..












some sneak previews from Wilson & Nara

I must had said this a couple of times, but do follow us on OhDear Facebook because i update there much much more frequently.. http://www.facebook.com/ohdearphotography

Felicia & James – A story of Bustops & Calculators Part1

Felicia and James are the last Couple I took to the now-history-KTM railway station.
Also, they are the first couple who used PokerCards as props. It was so funny because the KTM station was so crowded and we literally had to elbow our way around, stop people from snapping photos of “The Wedding Couple” and also throw pokerCards around.. =D

My couples always ask me what is the best time for shoots.. Well in my case, I would say Morning! As early as possible! Yes I know I know, it kills me to wake up at 6am too (shoot is 8am!) but the morning sun is really gorgeous.. and the greens are always dewy and shiny with morning dews.. Beautiful.

So anyway, enjoy this shoot peeps.

The Journey

In every shoot I does, I try my darnest to make it as meaningful and as personalized to the Couple as I can.
Not only do I aim to have a “Oh thats so pretty comment” (of course I love it), but I want the Couples’ friends to go “Oh thats so Them!” as well..

A picture tells a thousand words, how true. and here’s a Journey of a Couple thats’ told by me, through my lens..

as usual, Enjoy peeps.

Gavin & Huiling – Up the Faraway Tree

“and yup! We are done!” I said, after checking my camera screen.
“woohoo!” was Gavin and Huiling’s happy cheer..

Huiling told me it’s like her dream to have her prewedding taken on a tree.. so there we were laughing, tree climbing (with a bit of ant-chasing) and having adventures.

Have you guys been to the Singapore National Museum before? You must if you haven! Its gorgeous.. Cooling (aircon!) and beautiful interiors, the ceiling are glass, hence there are natural sunlight. *love!* Well you would love too, specially if you are wearing your gown and standing under the baking sun.

Right, so this series of Yvonne and Jacob were taken in the National Museum. Did I mention I love the tall long windows.. with golden sunshine pouring in? Enjoy!






a Golden Couple’s Golden Morning

Wayne and Anzeal are both so photogenic and romantic! They met at NIE and within a year, they had decided they are made for each other.. and they would be tying the knot soon~ aww. When you know, you know. Right?
