Darrell and Lena split their wedding between two countries so family members in both countries could enjoy their wedding day. The first part of  their wedding was held in Caversham Park,Perth, Australia. The day began with bridal preparations and then it was off to Caversham Park for the outdoor wedding. The dinner reception was at the Perth City Hall. Back in Malaysia the church wedding was at Assumption Roman Catholic church in Petaling Jaya, followed by a wedding dinner at the Westin Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Special thanks to the team from 35mm Studio for their helping hand, company and humour on this shoot.

We get asked to cover boards of directors and senior management fairly regularly. These shoots are usually for annual reports as well as web site usage. This photo shoot was for KPMG Malaysia and we decided to make this a fairly fun shoot for everyone, as is evident in the photos.

Dac and Wai Pin contacted me to be their wedding photographer for their Chinese/Vietnamese/Western fusion beach resort wedding at the Westin Hotel in Langkawi, Malaysia. Two very lovely families. The weather was all over the place with rain coming down during the portrait session, partly due to it being a crazy hot day that ended up with a pool party at the end of everything. Good it was a private pool as the party went on into the night. You can view their wedding  below.

John and Mindy’s Wedding at St John’s Cathedral & Royal Chulan

Sometimes you just need a womans touch. Mindy lends a helping hand to help John pop the cork!

John and Mindy’s wedding was a fusion of both Chinese and Christian traditions. John and his friends did the traditional bargaining and collection of the bride before having a tea ceremony then off to church. The wedding was held in St. John’s Cathedral in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. It’s a nice church with stained glass windows and an airy atmosphere. Afterward the wedding banquet was planned for the Royal Chulan hotel. The Royal Chulan has several areas for wedding dinners, with one of the popular venues the being the glass roofed central court which is what was used this evening. It is a personal favourite location for me due to its openness. It has a certain “feel” I can’t quite articulate.  Photos below.

Just a quick post tonight. Yesterday afternoon we covered a wedding in St Johns Cathedral. Time was very tight  due to evening mass flooding in right after the service so before leaving from church to the hotel we squeezed off a quick set of portraits in less than 5 minutes. A wee bit of pressure but photos at the church are always nice to have!  No time for lighting to be set up so these are pretty much straight from camera. Fill lighting was sun light bouncing up from off the floor.

Vanessa and Christopher – Beach Destination Wedding at Four Seasons Langkawi

Beach Destination wedding photographer at Four Seasons Langkawi

Vanessa and Christopher’s weddign was on the beach at the Four Seasons on Langkawi. We started with mandatory portraiture around the resort before heading to the beach for the actual ceremony. The wedding dinner was at the Serai and was both stylish and awesome fun. Once it got dark the whole wedding party went down to the beach to set free hot air lanterns. A couple of weeks later we headed down to Melaka to photograph their wedding banquet for family who couldn’t make it. I haven’t put up a posting of this (yet) so in the meantime will include just onre of the photos from that evening at the bottom of this photo set. Photos included below.

Malay Kampong Wedding in Tanah Merah Kelantan

Originally posted 2010-06-26 14:43:18.

One of the things I love about covering weddings in Malaysia is I get to travel all over this wonderful country and see every type of culture and wedding practice. Hanin and Azlina’s Malay wedding was held in a small kampong (village) in Tanah Merah, Kelantan. The village had the typical raised houses and “big family” feel. So EVERYONE came for the event. The house was decorated beautifully. The following day we were treated to a selat demonstrations (Malay martial arts) and I have included a photo of this further down in this post.

This was one of the few weddings I do shoot alone. I usually can’t do this as being in 2 or 3 different places at once is logistically impossible. But this was no problem for this wedding.

Technical trivia: Nikon D3, assorted lenses. Off camera flash system using 4x Nikon SB800’s. These are the most reliable flashes I have ever owned!! Nothing else I have used either before or after have been so intuitive to use, so reliable, or so well thought out as far as power to weight ratio and the inclusion of so many useful extras. I have owned mine since 2007, and 8 years on are still chugging along with what I would guess as at least a hundred thousand triggerings per unit with no overheating and no burned out components.

PreWedding Portrait Photography in Bali

Bryan and Cheeleng’s prewedding portrait session was in Bali. It was a long hot day but it was so much fun. Bali is one of those classic destinations where you just can’t go wrong with its exotic locations and awesome scenery. I would have to admit we struggled with the lighting on this trip. The sun was relentless casting harsh light almost everywhere we went. Due to heavier traffic than expected we couldn’t wait it out at many of the destinations but overall we got some really memorable photos.Next time I think two days minimum would be a better idea.

Lay May and Marcel asked me to be their wedding photographer for their wedding at the Pangkor Laut Resort. We had fun shooting the photography for this wedding. Do note the extra studio style lights we put up under the pagoda for the ceremony. We did this to balance the shadowy area under the roof with the bright sunshine everywhere else. It’s important when you hire a photographer that you get someone who is both experienced enough to know what to do under tricky lighting, and motivated to bring all the extra equipment to do it. Boy Scout motto: Be Prepared.

Reg and Lisa chose to celebrate their day with a destination beach wedding at the Four Seasons Resort in Langkawi. It is easily my favourite beach wedding location. The afternoon kicked off with a Chinese Tea Ceremony in the Rhu bar. We then went to the Spa for wedding portraits before getting ready for the sunset beach wedding.As can be seen in a couple of the photos the sun was very low in the sky before we even got started, so the portraits were mostly photographed in the twilight.  The wedding dinner was at the Serai Restaurant. Good weather. Great couple with “Funtastic” friends too.

Well yes weddings are my passion, and it is the most “up front” and noticeable photography I do in Malaysia, however I also do a lot of corporate and commercial photography as well. These photos are from concerts I photographed for Acts School of Dance. The dance school is located in Plaza Damas. I have had a long history of shooting for them ever since 2007. I LOVE photographing the performing arts, particularly dance and ballet!

Dominic and Laurens wedding at the Four Seasons Langkawi. This is a second post on this wedding, a transfer from my old site which has more than 100 more photos. Please note that as the following images are a transfer from my old website that they are of lower resolution than my newer postings. That said I do know they look great on my iPhone 6.

Dominic and Lauren’s wedding at the Four Seasons Langkawi

Originally posted 2009-09-09 15:09:49.

Dominic and Lauren contacted me to be their wedding couple for their destination beach resort wedding…at where else? The Four Seasons Langkawi. They were a really very sweet couple and had a touching wedding on the beach conducted by one of their friends who flew in from the USA.  Lauren had thought things out well. She had brought print outs on how she wanted her hair and make up to look which really helped the makeup and hair stylists. Another great idea was printing out name badges for everyone. You know how awkward it can be to be faced with a lot of new strangers/friends and remembering every ones name can be a chore. This was a simple fix!

Fortunately it wasn’t crazy hot on this occasion however I still remember how hard it was to run up the beach and stairs to get the wide overlooking photo featured in the set below. Why run? Beach and “modern” weddings are really fast! 5-10 minutes max for the ceremony, so its a good idea to have two photographers (like we usually do) to get as many angles as quickly as possible.

Regarding the dinner: In the Serai which is where it often is. There was a karaoke going most of the night and I think everyone except me had a turn! lots of fun and the party just didn’t stop. Exactly how I like them.

Hope you enjoy the photos.

In Studio with Douglas Lim the Malaysian Comedian

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.

A wedding in City Harvest Church KL and dinner at the Holiday Inn Glenmarie

Kevin and Monica’s wedding was at the first City Harvest Church in Subang. The old building was never a great place to shoot, with everything  dark and blue, there being no windows whatsoever and the sewage aeration ponds across the road. Not nice! This is quite different from their new location which is such a nice set up for weddings that it is difficult to get a bad photo there. Despite that, it was always a favorite church to shoot in, being one of the more lively and “happening” churches in KL. You will also see our additional lighting in some of these photos. This was years before radio strobes became popular. You will also see a very young Pastor Kevin Loo.

After the main ceremony we headed to the Holiday Inn, Glenmarie, for the Chinese tea ceremonies and dinner banquet. You will also notice in one of these photos my good friend Louis Pang (a wedding photographer from KK) and I posing for a shot. He is one of the relatives and also in the tea ceremony photos.
