Time to start a write out and post some engagement shots including this of my good friends, Cindy and Chee Seong early this year in a few places in Malaysia. Both of them are very supportive and encouraging to me since the day I started photography. To me, they are friends, they are family, and they are always there for me when help is needed.
One of the many reasons I admire Cindy and Chee Seong is they are one of the sweetest couples I know. They have known each other for 7 years. When Cindy was doing her tertiary study in Johor and she was doing part time work, then she met the man of her life.
Cindy is from Melaka and Chee Seong was born in Seremban, a small town shares some similar characteristic of Melaka. But distance was never a problem to them. Cindy once told me one of the many things Chee Seong did which touched her heart was Chee Seong once rode an old motorbike from Seremban to Johor and just to see her. It took him at least 4 hours and full of risk which then won her heart even more.
Even for their marriage proposal, Chee Seong did something sweet really. He gave her a surprise proposal on the stage of Dataran Pahlawan shopping mall. With their special love song sung on the stage in front of public to drew her attention when she was shopping in the concourse where the stage is with her friends. Kenn and I did the The Proposal – Chee-Seong and Cindy. That was how she said ‘I do” and became Mrs. Lew. Who could resist such a sweet and courageous proposal by their loved one?
They tied the knot in mid of this year and I was invited to do a prewedding shoot for them. We had an early arrangement and discussion prior to the shooting. Things like gowns and dresses, props, make up, location, outstation arrangement were mostly done and arranged by Cindy and Chee Seong, which was not an easy thing for most couples.
We did a few shootings for a few day in a few places. We had fun, traveled together and took photos whenever there were spontaneous loving experiences happened between them. When we did a shooting in Port Dickson, there was a pour. They showed the passion for another, held and kissed regardless of the rain.
Many little things that tell how they have come together so far and so loving. As a friend, I always enjoy the time hanging out with them and listen to their stories. I feel grateful for them trusting in me and being so supportive in my passion and career, and appreciate our friendship.
A big thanks and congratulation to Cindy and Chee Seong. Happy marriage and may your life be fulfilled with each other’s company and that you may grow old and happy together. Enjoy your time together, and bring on the babies!
May all beings bEE happy.
