Ryan and Rebecca’s Wedding at St Thomas Church and the Hyatt Regency, Kuantan

Ryan and Rebecca's Kuantun Wedding at St Thomas and the Hyatt

The beautiful bride

Rebecca asked me to be her wedding photographer back in May this year. Like many of my out station brides the first time we met was the night before the wedding when we checked into our hotel. After that it was off to the rehearsal at St Thomas Church in the middle of Kuantan town. Rebecca’s family were most welcoming when we met them there and we went through the rehearsal with them.

The next morning we kicked the actual wedding day off with family photos at their new house before heading down to St Thomas Church. After a sweet intimate service and a really tasty lunch at the church (roast lamb is ALWAYS a winner!!!) we headed back to the Hyatt Regency on the beach front for portraits.

As is usual for us portraits were done on the actual day. It was VERY hot and as the middle of the day is usually not conducive due to the harsh shadows the sun gives, we looked for window light. As you can see from the photo above this worked great. The beautiful photo featuring the beach and sea behind the lovely couple was tricky. Three flashes were used, two on full power, whilst the other one was held way out behind them to give some separation to the image. It was a long way down so good job we didn’t drop that light!

Dinner was obviously fun, as you can see from the photography below. At the end of the wedding banquet we finished as we started, with a family group photo, albeit much bigger.

Cameras used were my trusty Nikon D3 and the new Canon 5DmkIII. Every time I look at my beat up D3 camera thinking it’s time to replace it I just need to look at how great the photos it produces to bring me back to earth . The top photo is with the D3.

Prospective brides often ask me how many images we shoot on the day so I will try to remember to include the number in future posts. For this wedding there were 801 photos in total.

Mac and Kevin approached me to be their wedding photographer earlier this year. it was a two day event with their Roman Catholic wedding at Our Lady of Lourdes in Klang, followed by lunch and their tea ceremony. It turned out to be one of the most fun tea ceremonies to date, possibly because lunch was so much fun.

A few weeks later we were down at Cyberview Lodge to cover the official wedding banquet dinner. As you can see it was a lot of fun!

Melissa and Donovan’s Wedding in Sacred Heart Cathedral and the Hyatt Hotel in Kota Kinabalu

Beautiful Kadazan Bride Sacred Heart Church Kota Kinabalu

Melissa and Donovan called me from Kota Kinabalu to ask whether I would be interested to fly over to be their wedding photographer for their big day in Sabah. Melissa is Kadazan which is an instant draw card for me. I have been the wedding photographer for a number of Sabahan’s in Kuala Lumpur and I have always enjoyed the traditional Sumazau dance which seems to get everyone up onto the dance floor regardless of race or religion. The church service was in Sacred Heart Cathedral. Melissa’s sister sang beautifully in the church and later the following day at the wedding banquet which was held in the Hyatt hotel. The interesting drink in the bamboo cups is the local rice spirit, akin to Japanese Sake I believe.

Points of interest for wedding photographers reading this are that for this wedding I used FujiFilm’s new X-Pro1 camera which was on loan to me, and for the super wide photos I used Sigma’s new 12-24mm.  Both performed admirably. The other thing I hope you notice is how far back we stand from the action. Whilst wedding photographers cannot be invisible (which would be ideal!) we do try to be as unobtrusive as possible. A good longer lens like a 70-200  zoom really helps to achieve this.

Fan Jean and Lee’s Wedding at Home and Reception at the Shangrila Tanjung Aru, Kota Kinabalu

Fan Jean and Lee’s Wedding at the Shangrila Tanjung Aru

Kota Kinabalu, beautiful  location, lovely people. I first met FanJean when I was the wedding photographer at City Harvest Church (CHC) in Subang Jaya several years ago, and when she contacted me to be her wedding photographer back in her home town of Kota Kinabalu I leapt at the chance. Her family were very welcoming and showed me where to get the freshest seafood in KK the night before the wedding.

Next day I headed to Jean’s house whilst Selvam, one of several professional photographers I work with, headed over to Lee’s house. The plan was to meet up at Jean’s for the bargaining and then out into the garden for the wedding ceremony. Garden weddings work well in Malaysia but can sometimes be tricky to photograph as our sun is a bit merciless. For the keen photographers out there who are faced with the challenges outdoor shoots hold, make sure you shoot in RAW as the contrast range is well beyond the capabilities of jpeg processing in current cameras.

From the photos you will see there was very much an England theme, and I think you will agree the boys look striking in their Union Jack aprons! After a fairly fun bargaining session, where we learned all about chickens and eggs, it was on into the garden for a small and intimate Christian wedding ceremony performed by their pastor. A quick change and then the tea ceremony followed.

During the early evening we headed down to the beach and were lucky enough to catch the last rays of sunset for some portraits and then on into the Shangrila Tanjung Aru for the wedding dinner. I have included a photo of how Jean and Lee helped their guests find their tables. I hope you get some ideas from it. The end of the evening featured the Sumazou a traditional dance in East Malaysia which I happen to like quite a bit.

All in all a great wedding in East Malaysia.

Mark and May Choo’s Wedding in Winford, Bristol

Wedding at the Parish Church of St. Mary and St Peter Winford

Wedding at the Parish Church of St. Mary and St Peter Winford

Keep Calm and Carry On! Words I wish every bride I met would take to heat, and very much the theme for Mark and May. Two of the loveliest people I know.

Johnny, Hock Seng and I were their wedding photographers when they were married back here in Malaysia. After the wedding the migrated down to Australia but when ever they were back in KL they would give me a buzz to remind me they wanted me to be up in Winford for their UK wedding celebration, so finally I got the call and invite to head up to England yet again.The wedding was planned to be in the small town of Winford, just outside of Bristol at the small historic parish church of St. Mary and St. Peter.

The first day we headed into Bristol itself to do some portraits, then back to the church for some shots around it. Next day we started at about 10am with makeup and hair and then the service at 1pm. Mark’s uncle supplied his classic Austin A40 as the awesome wedding car. Don’t you agree it looks sweet!

Once the traditional ceremony was finished there was a confetti toss as the couple left the church. It got everywhere and I still find confetti from the wedding in my camera bag  up until today.

After the ceremony it was all back to the Winford pub, and easy 5 minute walk and then the wedding breakfast (we call it a wedding reception back in Malaysia). The three tiered cake represented the three main countries Mark and May have shared their lives together in, Malaysia, Australia, and the UK

Tech Specs: Camera Nikon D3s. No flash allowed in church.

I was delighted when she called me regarding being her actual day wedding photographer. There were lots of friends from the hotel industry present and as you can see it was a fun wedding day. The day started with a traditional Chinese Bridal bargaining, and then moved on to a traditional Tea Ceremony and then a mighty fine dinner. Naoko’s father, sister, and nephews and neice all flew out from Japan to enjoy the experience.

Fujifilm and Astalift show room in Menara Axis

Fujifilm asked us to do a corporate shoot for them at their Menara Axis, Petaling Jaya Office for the launching of their new product Astalift. Astalift is pretty much a house hold brand name in Japan, and ranks in the same stratospheric market of skin products as SK-II. I have personally used their gel and I can tell you it is really good stuff!

Here is an info blurb from their web site:

“Created by FUJIFILM, ASTALIFT is an award-winning brand that offers carefully-researched skincare and supplement products with proven efficacy.

Not many know that oxidation – the leading cause of freckles and skin ageing – is responsible for colour fading in photographs. FUJIFILM has applied its advanced understanding of the process of anti-oxidation technology to create ASTALIFT’s award-winning anti-ageing products.

What’s more, Collagen “an important structural protein in human skin “ is also the key ingredient for photographic film. FUJIFILM, harnessing its nearly 80 years of collagen research, has effectively channeled this area of expertise to ASTALIFT’s products.

FUJIFILM has also applied its proprietary knowledge of nanotechnology for exposing and colour developing in film to allow high concentrations of ultra-fine skin-nourishing ingredients to be delivered effectively and deeply to targeted levels of the skin, while preserving their efficacy.

FUJIFILM’s strengths in image analysing technologies gleaned from our vast experience in the photographic and medical fields have also been used in skin tone reproduction technology to enhance one’s looks in the cosmetics field.

Inspired by skin cell research. Powered by proprietary nano technology.”

Honeymoon Locations in Malaysia

Originally posted 2012-01-25 19:31:34.

Four Seasons Malaysia Honeymoon

Over the years I have been to many hotels throughout Malaysia and wanted to put up some of my suggestions.

Four Seasons Langkawi Island: Intimate and quiet. The perfect honeymoon destination where everyone know your name. You can enjoy the infinite pool, water sports, cycle rides to waterfalls. his hotel tops my list for couples who want that something special. They have a variety of specials for honeymoon couples so best you call ahead.

Pangkor Laut Resort: Another very pleasant location.  A bit busier and will feel a bit more hustle and bustle, but a tasteful resort experience.

Datai & Andaman Hotels: The Datai and Andaman are both fantastic places. Deciding between the two can be difficult.

Westin Langkawi: Lovely beach and larger scale than the above resorts. It can feel like a family holiday destination.

The hotel pulled out all the stops to make sure this was a fairy tale wedding. The weather held,  and we had a great party that night. Lanterns finished off the evening.

Suresh and Shamini’s Wedding in Church of St John the Divine, Ipoh and the Victoria Holiday Villa Subang

Indian Church Wedding in Ipoh

When Suresh and Shamini contacted me to be their wedding photographer  they explained it would be a two…well actually 3 day affair. The first day, not featured here, was their ROM (Registration of Marriage) done in Kuala Lumpur. The second day was held in Ipoh at one of the Anglican churches, Church of St John the Divine, St John’s Road, Ipoh, to be precise. This was followed by dinner in the Ipoh town hall. One thing I must point out, is that the photographers crowding the couple are NOT my team. We never crowd like that and had to shoot around them to get the photos needed. They RUINED a lot of images. If you are keen on hiring more photographers for your wedding, let me know. I can get them cheaper and they are controlled and answerable to me. No need for duplication of the work so i will assign them properly. The following week we were the photographers for their KL dinner, which was held in the Victoria Ballroom at the Holiday Villa in Subang.

In Malay culture the bride-to-be has a ceremony which is meant to be a time of reflection and thanks giving for her upcoming wedding. Men are usually not present other than the photography and video teams. Here we see Areena’s Katam the day before her wedding.

For those who don’t know, Tony Blair served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, from 1997 to 2007.

Tim and Anna contacted me to be their photographer for their wedding at the Colmar Tropicale Berjaya Hill Resort near Genting. It was an outdoor wedding and the weather held up well. The hotel has a French theme and this was played upon for the dinner that followed later in the evening by the use of masks at the banquet. Sort of a masked dinner type theme. As you can see, everyone had a fun experience.

Adrian and Gamy’s made for a wonderful couple. Wedding preparations for Gamy and her bridesmaids was at the Pearl Point Hotel. They then left to meet Adrian who was waiting for them at the “Church of Our Lady Of Fatima” in Brickfields. After the service we prepared to cover the wedding dinner banquet at the Pearl Point Hotel. A very nice touch was the home made wedding cake. While not as large as the icing covered cardboard cakes typical in most wedding banquets, home made cakes always taste better than mass produced “cookie cutter” cakes. That’s what love and care can do!

Gamy had two changes during the night. Her first walk in was in her wedding gown, followed by a stunning blue saree. lastly she wore a hot little number for the first dance and end of night party.

It was a really great evening. Enjoy the photos.

When I received a call from Laverne and Jin regarding being their wedding photographer I was really happy. I have taken the wedding photos for many of the leadership team at City Harvest Church (CHC) including their pastors, and had seen them at several of these weddings. This is in their new church which is fantastic! Their bright candy red VW combi wedding car was also a stunner.

Clarence and Joanna’s wedding was at the Roman Catholic Church Divine Mercy in Shah Alam.  Our photography started in the morning at Joanna’s house before heading to the church. Afterwards we headed to the Marriott Hotel where the wedding reception was held. This was one of those rare ocassions we did not need to do portraiture on the actual wedding day.  I trust you enjoy their wedding  photos.

Yes and Oyen’s wedding portraits at Ciao Restaurant

Yes and Oyen called me to be the wedding photographer for their wedding at Ciao Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. It was a dream come true for Yes as she had been eyeing me up to cover her wedding for close on 7 years! Only problem was no groom(!) a common problem these days. Then Oyen popped into her life and sure enough after checking dates it was fantastic that we could cover Yes’s big day!  This is the new Ciao. I had shot several weddings at the old one…some of them so long ago that everything was FILM based(!?!) This newer venue is really pleasant and the wedding was a small intimate affair with close friends and family. Everyone at the table was able to give a speech and many were very touching. As both Yes and Oyen are in the music industry, along with several of their guests, there were some lovely songs “gifted” to the couple, one of which was written specifically for them. A great wedding and one of those I will treasure the memories of for a very long time.
