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 ;)
Here's a little vlog episode of what goes on a week before a wedding day at the NICOLETHEN STUDIO 😉
Outtakes from project done with HerWorldPlus in Bhutan.
New years are always a good time to start something new. Earlier this year, Aaron and Shermaine a embarked on life's adventures together is they said their I Do's on this very special day. The day itself was a slightly wet one, the fresh breeze that blew over that cool new year's day.
Both of them were filled with anticipation! Unspoken joy and excitement coupled together as they prepared to wed one another in the presence of their loved ones, family members and their friends.
Pictures create a trail of memories and encapsulated within are a multitude of emotions. And as we take a look at the pictures now, we take but a glimpse into the window of memories as we recollect and remember the wonderful things that happened 6 months ago.
As they settle, learn more about one another, we continue to wish them a blessed marriage ahead. Here's to many many more memories!
It is no secret that we at Nicolethen Studio are fans of the rabbit hole. From their unique interior design to their garden party esque like outdoor setting makes it an excellent place to hold a small yet intimate wedding. Reminiscing the time we shot this evening wedding, there was a vibe of simplicity in the air as Shean and Weiming got ready to walk down the isle on their big day. As their guests took their seat and flowed in, we played a part in inscribing the moments and memories dear to their hearts captured with laughter and joy. If you guys are planning on doing something adventurous, dreams of walking down the isle in an outdoor setting, do give the rabbit hole @ Dempsey a look. If you guys decide to drop in during evenings, you might want to snag a selfie at the iconic garden arc as seen in the photos below. We hope you enjoy the post and the pictures. Thank you for stopping by NTS.
Josh and Shereen's wedding was featured on The Wedding Scoop!
We enjoyed the post plenty especially the little interview session where Shereen shares some tips and wedding advice for bride and grooms to be.
“We knew exactly what we didn't want for our wedding. Being at prior weddings, we questioned the necessity of certain things because they didn't seem particularly important or significant to us. Personally we aren't extravagant or flamboyant people and we wanted our wedding to reflect us, so we went with something straightforward and ensured there was a significance to everything that we did. And that incidentally helped us save on certain costs! Most importantly, don't let the pressure of comparisons dictate how you plan your wedding.” ~ Shereen

In this episode, we answer a very good question posed by Leslie (thanks again for your question!!):
"Actually how necessary is it to edit the photos? What do you actually mean by editing the photos?" @leslietzy
We talked about the common reasons why a digital image needs to be taken into photo editing software to be post processed and polished up and what exactly do we mean when we say we have to post process the images. Here's a peak behind the veil of what happens to your wedding photos after the big day!

Recently I stumbled across this video again and thought I'd share it on the blog. I scripted this little reflection for Love, Bonito and we jetted off to Vietnam to film the different sequences. It was one interesting experience and also one of my first times penning a script for a brand instead of just for myself. Hope you enjoy it!
WHO WOULD I BE?
If I could start afresh,
Who would I be?
I would pursue curiosity
without shyness nor fear.
Learn the story of the lady down the street,
Try an exotic flavour,
Marvel at nature.
That's who I'll be.
I would love with no fear,
cherish each connection
and embrace with no restraints
and love from an abundance.
I would seize the chance to stand still,
and experience fully each second of my days.
To not just live but be alive
and remind my soul to breath.
The strength to be meek,
the grace to accept,
the fight through struggles,
the joyous resounds.
Every new day,
the morning dew,
the glow of dawn,
a choice, a gift, a new song.
Who would I be?
I would be me.
That's who I'll be.
So, be free.
In this episode we share with you some tips on how to look as photogenic as possible on your wedding day. Of course it doesn't just apply to your wedding day and you can very well apply these tips any time you have to be photographed so share away these tips if you found them useful.
NO TIME TO WATCH THE FULL VIDEO?
We break it down for you in the pointers below ;)
1) CHIN AND NECK
Keep your chin forward and down, yup, like a chicken? And don't forget a long neck! Ok...so maybe not like a chicken, more like a swan? Yup. Swan sounds nicer :P So this reduces the possibility of double chins and makes your face more flattering. Just don't over do it ;)
Create some space between your elbow and your waist. Or just relax your arm and avoid the straight jacket look with your arms. Also if you'd like a double whammy, read point number 3.
3) THE HIPS
When taking a portrait, turn your hips to an angle but your shoulders square to the camera, then remember points number one and two and you're good!!
4) THE SHOULDERS
Don't slouch. Yup, sounds simple but don't do the bust forward either. Roll your shoulders and centralise them and stretch out your shoulder blades and push those shoulders down. Is this confusing? Maybe the video will help show you this better haha :P
5) THE MAKE UP ARTIST
Your make up and hair is a huge confidence booster or it can rob you of your confidence too, so get make up artist referrals from brides who share the same taste in make up and also don't forget to do a test make up session to get the right look that you for both your face and the right hairstyle that will frame your face best!
* Remember, nothing shines brighter then a joyful and comfortable you!! <3

The start of family life is a beautiful thing as new parents endeavour to give their very best of their time, effort, energy devoted to their newborn. As a child, they enjoy the warm embrace of their parents, comforted, loved, treasured and precious. We join Winnie and Bing Da one afternoon and saw countless expressions of their love and devotion to little Liya, a bundle of joy.
Parents play a myriad of different roles but above all, a child's very first teachers begin with their parents.
Sharing some of our favourite pictures from Ted & Mingli's Pre-Wedding Portrait session where we walked around the neighbourhood where they dated and explored a different side of a well known garden. This set of images were done with a mix of digital and film photography with a video interview of their love story. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did shooting it!
I realised that there are alot of weddings I haven't blogged between that time when I stopped updating the old blog and when I've got this new blog! So I'm digging into the archives to feature some weddings and this is one of them!!
