I love this.

Getting to see couples commit to each other, make their vows in front of those who love them and celebrate their union with friends and family.
•
Being a wedding photographer really is one of the best jobs in the world.
•
No doubt about it ❤

Almost every year since 2011, their mama would arrange for a family portrait session without fail. The only years that they missed out on was when she had to go for her chemo sessions.

This morning, I shot what was for me, their 6th family session but this time round, it was only her husband and 3 kids below the age of 13.

Unfortunately, S had passed away two years ago after a long battle with cancer.

Throughout the bittersweet shoot, I reminded myself of that time when she told me that she just wants to make sure her kids would always have a reminder of the happy childhood that they have.

During the last few sessions with them, I knew that my purpose was to obtain pictures that her children can look back on with fond memories of their mama who loved them to pieces.

That years to come, even when their memories may have faded slightly, at least they'll still have photos to remind them of how their mama was during the last few years of her life.

I guess I'm just writing this down to remind myself of my intentions when it comes to taking photos. Not just about taking a pretty picture, but a photo which would be meaningful for my clients and their loved ones in years to come.

S, thanks for entrusting me with the honour of taking your family portraits for you throughout all these years.  RIP ❤

Just looking at their  photos made me smile as their joy is absolutely infectious! Here's some of my favourite moments from Avinash & Meishi's recent Hindu ceremony 😍

How often does one get to shoot a wedding officiated by the fathers of both the bride and the groom? Like dude, once in 10 years of wedding photography for me 😛 #canigetawhoopwhoop
•
This marks the final day of my personal challenge of posting a photo on Instagram every single day for the month of November.
•
It's actually been nice to *really* look at my photos and be reminded that I've still got so, so much to master in terms of photography. Let's not get started on the amount of times I slap myself for the photos that I looked back on and cringed 😵😂 This really is a never ending learning curve 😁
•
But you know what was even better? Throughout the past 30 days of sharing photos of past and recent shoots, I get to relive all these moments and just feel utterly grateful for the honour and pleasure of sharing all these good times.
•
You guys rock my world 🤗 like seriously, a big fat thank you from the bottom of my heart for constantly reminding me just what gratitude and appreciation feels like 🙏🏽

If only I stayed on after midnight and captured the shenanigans that continued on during Sam & Kellie's wedding festivities, I would've gotten enough photos for the blackmail folder which would've been enough for my retirement fund.....

Wait did i say that out loud? 😛

Someone asked me why I don't shoot details during weddings. I so do shoot details. I just don't post them up much. Not only details but whatever piques my interest or if there's something specific which my clients tell me is special for them.
•
That question got me thinking. How social media only shows a small part of what one actually does. How for most #weddingphotographers , what we post on Instagram is literally 1 out of gazillion mages from one event.
•
And it's amazing. How from that single photo that one chooses to share on social media, you actually attract your tribe, the kind of people that you wanna work with and vice versa.
•
Or you could say that it's meant to be. That whatever happens, with or without social media, you're bound to cross paths with those who are meant to be part of your wedding celebrations.
•
Am I making sense? Don't mind me, just one of those nights where my thoughts wander about nonsensically 😂

"You can't hang with us 😎 "

Completely missed out on posting a photo yesterday! In line with my November personal challenge of sharing an image daily, here's the second photo for today to replace what I didn't post yesterday 😅
•
Think it's kinda cool that I've got this little platform to keep me accountable for mini challenges I give myself. Even if no one notices, I still feel guilty about not following through on something once I talk about it 😅😂
•
Y'all have a great Monday ahead 💃🏽

First dance of S&R's KL wedding reception 💃🏽

Come on. You gotta admit it. Not every wedding will run as smoothly as planned.
•
The caterers could have forgotten something. The timing can be a bit off. The decoration might not have had turned out the way you wanted it to.
•
And in this case, M forgot to bring along the actual bouquet for P 😅 But instead of stressing out about it, they both had a good laugh. Cos at the end of the day, what is a bouquet within the grand scheme of things?
•
A wedding is about celebrating and having fun with your family and friends, so I personally love it when a couple takes everything in stride, looks at small hiccups in a positive way and continue on with enjoying the day!

Most couples have sore cheeks the day after their wedding just from laughing and smiling so much throughout the day. Fact 🤓

More than the "perfect" shot, it's the casual ones which tug on my heartstrings 💕

"Bubbles for you?"
•
I shot A&E's wedding 5 years ago and had the pleasure of seeing them again as well as meeting their two lil ones earlier today!
•
The shoot was completely different vibe to their wedding day as now, instead of just each other, they've got their hands full with their adorable kiddos.
•
It's always surreal to follow my clients journey as they progress in life not only as partners but also as a little family unit.
•
Such an honour to be given this privilege to record down these milestones for them 🙏🏽
