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. :))
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!
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!!!
When I first met up with Melvin & Geraldine, they told me they wanted something very Vogue. I was kidda apprehensive, having not done much of these mood.
They were a lovely couple, extremely chatty and warm.. On the day of shoot itself, I was overwhelm by how simple things are! not much posings are required on my part, they trusted me and so fun to shoot.
I had shot vintage scooters, vintage cars but this is my first time shooting such a cool bike.
It really amps up the cool factor!
Here are the photos and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoy creating these visuals. 99 Miles an hour!

one of the first place that I did my shoot at is this beautiful meadow near Hort Park. It’s actually in the mid of nowhere thats quite inaccessible unless you’re driving.
I discovered this gem of a place when I was shooting my own Engagement photos, (my friend helped me with this, with a super retro film camera, but that’s a post for another day)
The greens are always gorgeous, sun is always beautiful there.. Only lacking thing is unicorns and rainbows. HAHA.
So I was glad when Adeline & Edwin choose this place to shoot part1 of their photos, brilliant. I love her gown and I love the whole mood of the photo..
Part2 was a totally different feel. A very city-feel which I think makes a fab contrast to the green photos. ;)) Enjoy the photos guy~
Something about this album’s quirky title tells you how crazily fun this very sweet couple is. I enjoyed the time spent shooting them a lot. Guys, thanks for having me and I seriously think you guys are the cutest!! have a very blissful marriage!! xoxo melody
p/s Makeup&Hair done by ever-so-magical Susan Tee
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….
To make good photos, good Light is the key factor.
I had harp on this alot of times over the years, but I think the best timing for shoot is 8am in the morning, there the lights are cooler and really gentle.
Sam & Chris is one beautiful couple I shot on this morning where Mother Nature was feeling extremely generous..
Enjoy the pictures people. 😉
I must had repeated myself a million times, but I find it extremely adorable for couples to bring in their own ideas and Likes into their prewedding shoot cause it shows so much about them.. It was actually my First time shooting cute costumes like this and I found it very refreshing.. I like! so, Couples, please come in costumes next time k! hahaa. (kidding)
Enjoy the pictures please!
I really really enjoyed shooting Shanna & Keven.. It helps that New Majestic Hotel is a really fab and gorgeous place.. But I think what I loved most is this Couple’s endless and crazy energy.. Together, I think this is a brilliant set of prewed if I do say so myself!!!
Because the weather was rather gloomy while we were over there, we had a last third day of shooting.
This series was shoot entirely at this gorgeous gorgeous villa we lived in, Kajane Mua.
It’s this private villa set in the mid of a paddy field, with waterfalls and paddy field inside the villa itself!
private pools to each villa. its was beautiful I tell you, I didnt wanna come back to Singapore!! =(
But I would def go back once I have the spare cash!!!
I have here with me a SuperHero Themed Engagement shoot to share today. Its uber fun and 100% sweetness. Joel & Esther’s idea was a silly and cute superhero shoot around Town. So there was the story of how Joel hates taking the public transport (same here!) and how SuperHero-Est is there to rescues him! Haha..
So I made them hippy-Hop around town, ran around with swords and attracting much curious looks. Heh!!
For the second location, we went to this very very nolgastic sand-playground that must had been the Love of all the 80s-Kids like us.
This adorable couple knew each other since they were little kids. I say, that’s so so super duper sweet,
to grow up and grow old together..
Have a blissful marriage Super-J and Super-E!
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.
