Nothing is more fun taking the wedding portrait of Jess and Einstein together with Jess’s family. Both Jess and Einstein are from Singapore and tied the knot in Singapore. However some of Jess’s relatives are staying in Melaka so both of them decided to have a simple tea ceremony and dinner for their relatives especially grannys who were inconvenient to travel to Singapore for their wedding.
Having a simple ceremony, Jess requested for an outdoor portrait session with her family before the ceremony. We headed to the heart of Melaka town and started the session. Drizzling didn’t stop us from having the fun at all. They were so sporting and non-stop making joke and teasing each other even the parents. There were the clicks of shutters and lots of laughs.
Jess loves the beach so much which made Klebang Beach our next shooting location. Though it was cloudy it didn’t rain when we arrived at the beach, it was cooling! Thank God, luck was on our side. We had another wonderful session with again filled with lots of fun.
Jess and Einstein, thank you both so much for inviting us to be your wedding photographers. Congratulation and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together now and forever!
Here are just a few favorites from the gorgeous day. WelcomEE May!

Brendon, King and I were pleased to meet Eva & Bryan, and photographed their wonderful wedding in the final quarter of last year.
There are so much to tell about Eva and Bryan two lovely couple from Melaka. We have something in common, as Eva and Bryan are outdoor lover especially for the beach, sunshine, and scuba diving.
Eva was dressed up in a beautiful gown and golden heels in the morning waiting for her man to come for a crazy gate crush session. The playful bridesmaids must have brainstorming the night before for the games which took the groomsmen quite some time to complete them so that Bryan could enter the room and gave the lovely bride a kiss to last a lifetime.
Luncheon reception was held the next day at Equatorial Hotel Melaka. It was sweet and full of romance when the couple marched in after a saxophone lead. A photobooth was also setup near the entrance allowing family and friends to have fun shots together throughout the reception.
There was something really heartbreaking to me and to couple and family, when knowing the passing of Bryan’s beloved father weeks before the wedding. It was an unfortunate timing however Bryan had his family’ support.
Although they missed dad so much, they honored the his memory and carried the wedding ceremony as planned. Lots of hugs and tears happened during the wedding showing the great support and encouragement from family and friends. The moments were emotional yet touching.
We had a great wedding shoot time with Eva and Bryan, and thank you again for having us on your special day. Congratulation on your happy wedding and may you find peace, faith and love in each other’s arms. May all bEE happy.

Right, more than a year since I last blogged about weddings. It’s time to catch up with some writings and really get some stories going now!
Great love story starting with Joern and Wilking’s, who got married few months back. Both Brendon and I were glad to photograph their wedding held in Melaka.
Both of them have a special and beautiful names. When I met Joern and Wilking before their wedding, I was introduced to their cute little one year-old son, Xerxes. First thing which came into my mind of the name Xerces was the Persian King from the film ‘300’, and I was right. Wilking named his name after the great king of Persian and hoping his son to be someone great and mighty.
In the morning of their big day, I photographed at Joern’s place during her make-up while Brendon covering groom’s preparation. There were many vintage Oriental prints on Joern’s wall, that tells why Joern was wearing traditional Chinese gown instead of white gown. Qiao-Yi from M Nicole Make Up did a great job making the bride just looked gorgeous.
When Wilking arrived at the bride’s place, gate crush game commenced with yoga on foot massage stones, team-walking on chairs, treasure hunt in flour, and the most disgusting one, biting the ice-cream made of wasabi, insect herbs, vinegar and many secret ingredients in order to get the right key hid in the ice-cream for opening the house door.
After vowing and pleasing the beautiful bride, Wilking finally got to take his wife and offered tea to their parents and elders from the family.
Joern and Wilking’s evening reception at Lu Yeh Yen Restaurant was one of the largest receptions we photographed. Over 800 of guests attended the evening reception.
It was also our first time working with JC Studio videography team from KL and it was so great working with them, such a professional and humble videography team, and I would recommend them for wedding videography. Feel free to drop by their FB page (https://www.facebook.com/jcstudio.my).
Thanks again to Joern and Wilking for trusting in us, and congratulation! Wishing them lots of wonderful moments of togetherness now and always, and a lifetime of happiness.
May all beings bEE happy.
Another brilliant day with Siew-Chen and Melvin in early June this year. We, Kenn-Wai, Fred, Brendon and I had the pleasure to photograph and video-shoot their big day.
On the lovely morning, we found ourselves with a pretty bride and her attractive bridesmaids wearing beautiful Cheong Sam. And the guys weren’t bad either; groom was smart looking in black Zhong Shan Zhuang while the brothers were wearing Chinese Tang Suit.
Both Siew-Chen and Melvin play band and sometimes perform in public. This explained why they and their friends were so sporting and happening on that day especially during the door games to pick up the bride. The guys had to finish up the girls’ secret recipe bitter gourd juice, specially made extra spicy sausages, and lastly the ladies’ favorite, cicada pudding. These so-called food would definitely get into the Top 10 Most Gross and Disgusting Food in weddings.
The wedding kiss happened after Melvin read up and signed a marriage contract, a loving yet unequal treaties I would say. Then he and the brothers sang the song “If I Have A Million Dollar”, kind a funny song to please the bride before he was allowed to enter the room and kissed the bride.
Soon after the tea ceremony at Melvin’s place, they went to their new house and Siew-Chen changed from her white wedding gown to a red traditional Kwa, a heavily embroidered formal Chinese wedding gown. Then she had an ornate headdress on and looked gorgeous.
The fun carried on into the night. The reception was held at LTP Restaurant Melaka. Siew-Chen’s mom spiced up the night by giving a few songs on the stage and drew large applause from the guests. And now we know where Siew-Chen’s beautiful voice comes from.
Thanks to Siew-Chen and Melvin for having us on your special day. Congratulation and may the singing of enjoyment be along with you, may the life in the following year filled with joyance and happiness, and may you have a wonderful new life togEEther!
May all beings bEE happy. Sharing some shots taken on the day and hope you enjoy.

It was an afternoon filled with happy moments of the sweet couple Shin-Yee and Jun-Liang, and all invited guests. The wedding luncheon was held at SKT Banquet Restaurant in Muar and it was simply beautiful, simple and full of laughters.
I really enjoyed when the bride and groom performed the Chinese song ‘I will marry you today’ (今天你要嫁给我) by David Tao and Jolin Tsai. It was so sweet. Later some of the relatives and friends were performing on stage too and just simply having fun.
Congratulations Shin-Yee and Jun-Liang! Thank you for sharing your wedding day. May your marriage bring you both the exquisite excitements a marriage should bring, and may life grant you also patience, tolerance, and understanding.
May all beings bEE happy. Sharing some shots of the reception,
