It was my pleasure to see Douglas Lim in my studio recently to spruce up his online portfolio. Not so long ago I had the pleasure of covering his wedding day and we have kept in touch since that time. Douglas is a quite well known Malaysian comedian and his stand up is well worth the viewing. I am including only a small handful of the images below.
We started playing with some lighting

The beautiful wedding couple at the Datai, Langkawi
David and Nicki called me to ask whether I could be their photographer for their wedding at the Datai resort in Langkawi. This is a beautiful location for beach weddings and is fairly secluded from the rest of the resort. Having the wedding in the evening meant we could photograph some lovely portraits as the sun set. It was a lot of fun and we all got tanned!

Maryam and Hezran’s Malay wedding was held in Maryam’s home in KL and I have posted this elsewhere on this site. The following evening their wedding dinner was held at the Dewan Besar Tun Rahah on Jalan Bukit Bintang, which is a popular location for Malay weddings.

Maryam and Hezran: Maryam looked absolutely splendid at her Akad Nikah (Malay wedding) in Kuala Lumpur. One of the things to notice with this wedding is that there were three of us shooting it, each in a different place so as to maximise coverage, as typically there is no room to manoeuvre during the wedding. I was inside the “L” shaped room in one of the corners so I could shoot the ceremony and guests by simply swivelling, one of my colleagues (John Woo) was ensconced in theView full post »
Danny and Kirsty celebrated their wedding day in January 2009 with traditional Chinese tea ceremonies and then followed up with a wedding banquet in the Grand Lagoon ballroom at Sunway resort hotel and spa. This wedding was full of emotion and a really fun experience. I believe it was this wedding that convinced me to start packing ear plugs for the traditional fire crackers we;come committee.

Chef Martin Yan was in Malaysia to shoot a series of shows for the Asian Food Channel called Asian Favorites. The link to the show can be found here and you will see a lot more photos I took for them. I wanted to put up some of the behind the scenes photos on my web site as it goes to show all the behind people and work that goes into a TV show like this. Guest chefs on the show included Chef Datuk Fazley Yaakob and Vietnamese Chef Hoang Minh Nhat.

Amy and Henry’s wedding ceremony and dinner were on top of Penang hill. They had a TROPICAL 60’s theme. This wedding was notable for absolutely STUNNING views coupled with what has to be the most precarious tea ceremony I have covered so far. I was hanging on from the out side of the small venue.

I do a lot of corporate profile photo sessions at my studio in Petaling Jaya and thought I should post some images up from yesterdays shoot so people know what to expect. I believe photo sessions should be relaxed, enjoyable and fun. This ensures my subjects are relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera which is how we get the best look.

Sugi called me from Canada to ask if I could be the photographer for her wedding in Kerala, India, where they had chosen a beautiful resort for the wedding. For those who have not been to Kerala, it is very beautiful and green, very similar to Malaysia in many ways with lots of jungle and rubber plantations. As the date got closer something came up so the venue was switched to the Accord Metropolitan hotel in the middle of Chennai (Madras). This posed some challenges as the Sapphire room whichView full post »
CK and Jennifer celebrated their nuptials at St. Andrews church in Kuala Lumpur. We started with a tea ceremony at Jennifers before heading to church. Later in the day the second tea ceremony was at the JW Marriott. We also did portraits there before the dinner banquet.

Lucas and Liz contacted me to be their wedding photographer for their delightful destination wedding at the Four Seasons Beach resort in Langkawi. It turned out to be a wet and blustery day with the weather not knowing what it was going to do. The big question was whether it would rain or not. We started with portraits around the resort and then waited for some passing showers (could we call these “bridal showers”?) then we headed for the beach for the wedding ceremony. TheView full post »
It was a fabulous day for Andrew and Gemma’s wedding in Chilton Foliat, Hungerford.
Andrew and Gemma’s Wedding was in St Mary’s, Chilton Foliat, Berkshire, England.Â In UK churches flash photography is usually not allowed and as it was a dull wet day most of the interior church shots were taken at 6400ISO using available light. Chilton Foliat is just outside of the village of Hungerford, famed for its antiques. Andrew surprised his lovely bride Gemma by renting a beautifulView full post »

Part of the modernisation of my site included moving Tyler and Chuan’s wedding over to the new sites format, but in the transition I left about 200 photos behind. Time to rectify that! Below you will see many photos from their garden wedding at Pulai Springs Johor followed by portraits and their Ballroom Banquet. One of my favourite photos was their first dance. The original post is also on this site, but with far fewer photos.
BTW Tyler is from New Zealand. A kiwi like me!

Tyler and Chuan-Chuan’s wedding in Pulai Springs Johor was so much fun. Both were delightful and had a really nice garden wedding that was fun for everyone who came. Tyler’s a New Zealander and there was definitely some influence coming through during the day. As you can see from their wedding photos it was a great wedding.

George and Wen Lyn’s Christian wedding was conducted in the garden at George’s home in Damansara heights. The pool side setting was perfect and the weather held out to give us a wonderful day. We just had to be careful not to fall into the pool. Their dinner banquet was at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in the Opal and Jade ballrooms. This wedding was in January 2008 and I have included about 230 photos from my old web site so you can experience their full wedding day.

Adrienne first contacted me to be her wedding photographer whilst living in New York. My heart leapt when she told me she was planning a stylish wedding at the Four Seasons in Langkawi. I was also pleased to hear that Blair is a fellow Kiwi (a New Zealander). Adrienne’s family is from the UK. It was a fun wedding just off the beach. It was a lot hotter than it looks! I LOVED shooting this wedding and they were very pleased with the results.

A very happy bride!
Justin and Sher-Mayne asked me to be their wedding photographer for their upcoming wedding at Bangsar Sea Food Garden Village. The morning started off in traditional style, with the ragging of the groom and his party when they came to pick Shermayne up. This included eggs through the pants, nail polish, shaving of legs, the room key being fished out of the frozen water bucket with the foot (I think it took them 5 attempts so there were cold feet- fortunately not the grooms!View full post »

A Red Sox T-Shirt Wedding Favour
I was thrilled when Randy and Yin mei asked me to fly to Boston to be their wedding photographer. After we flew into new York we drove up to Boston for the wedding. It was a perfect autumn day in the historic city of Boston, Massachusetts when Randy and Yin Mei tied the knot. The wedding was in the Paulist Center and then on to Boston Common for the portraits. The reception was at the Hellenic Center in Ipswich. We had covered Randy and Yin Mei’s weddingView full post »

A blending of two cultures and a wedding celebration that spanned two countries on opposite sides of the world. Malaysia and the USA. The Malaysian celebration culminated in a dinner at the KLCC, whilst the Boston wedding at the Paulist Centre and following dinner was a treat. Special thanks to Randy and Yin Mei for choosing us for their celebration. I have lifelong memories I will always cherish. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

When Leon and Thushara contacted me to be their wedding photographer I was somewhat at a disadvantage as I had not photographed one before. Bahai weddings are unique, as the couple decide their own vows, their own method of celebration, whether to have an order of service or not….complete freedom! They celebrated their Baha’i Wedding at the Istana Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.
