It's wonderful to see Kelvin and Julette celebrating their big day in a nice chilled out fashion. The light was wonderful and the weather was great on their wedding day. This highlights consist of their morning recollections on their wedding day.
It wasn't too long ago when we met Hannah and Johnny to get to know them better. Who could ever forget their engagement and dating stories! Now that they've finally tied the knot, we couldn't be any happier for them. Congrats to Hannah and Johnny! We wish you guys a blessed marriage journey ahead.
In our time of covering wedding events, the white rabbit holds a special memory in our hearts because it was one of the earliest venues we went to when we first started shooting weddings together.
This visit has us covering Vaness and Travis's big day on a bright Friday afternoon as the both of them came together to say their 'I do's'. If you guys are thinking of planning for a classic and simple wedding, why not consider the white rabbit as well? Feel free to check out their highlights to get some ideas.
A throwback to April to recollect the times we had over at Shermaine and KC's big day. It was really nice to be a part of a wedding that was personal, fun and emotion filled all at the same time. Feel free to enjoy the highlights from their short film.

I think as a photographer & filmmaker, it's important that we share with you (without trying to sound too pretentious) the "philosophy" behind how we choose to capture moments at a wedding. How am I going to start sharing with you these abstract feelings? Maybe I'll start with what got me hooked on photography. I am an extreme introvert and I think I spent majority of my childhood observing people and I find people fascinating. Photography enabled me to capture the "ordinary" moments an individual has and I find the process very therapeutic and beautiful. Documentary or "street" photography is what draws me to photography. Here are some of my favourite photographers and why:
Most people know her more recent works where she photographs celebrities for magazines. But it is her work before Vanity Fair that I relish. Her documentary photojournalist way of telling a story is my favourite. No special light, no directing...just whatever is happening.
She's not a professional photographer, but her images just tell such a beautiful frame of the daily life. And she never displayed her images on instagram, just for herself.
By now, I just want to make a quick disclaimer to say that I am not anti-colour. I love colour. It just so happen to be that the works of photographers that I admire only existed in the period of black and white film. Well...except for Tatsuo Suzuki. He photographers our modern life but chooses to go black and white. But if it were in colour, I'm pretty sure I'd like it too. It's the movement in his images, the people that he frames that I enjoy.

Finally, it's the guy. He used a mobile 35mm film camera and is known for his candid photography. Many times how I choose my tool is similar. I go for small and light. Whatever best allows me to feel free when I work and remain as undetected as I possibly can. Because the real moments are the ones where people are unaware of the camera.
I hope you enjoy this little sharing of the photographs that I am drawn to and this real documentary style of making beautiful frames from ordinary moments are what gives me the fire to keep on shooting.
We had an incredibly short period of time, in between rehearsals Lauretta squeezed in time to shoot with the backdrop of MBS with the Sonata team. Even though it rained, she was an excellent sport and made her moves with grace, hands and limbs intertwined with architecture.

Took a quick trip to Malacca and brought along my Olympus zoom film camera along to take some snaps. This "Film with Me" videos are part of the SimplyFilm series where I just take you along with me on my film photography adventures, simple and no fuss ;)
