Sean’s Day Out

    by Ian

    This post is special.

    Jason & Singyun was one of our first clients whom we had the privilege to shoot for, both on their pre-wedding session and wedding day. Soon afterwards they moved to Essen, Germany and we haven’t heard from them ever since. So imagine our excitement when they contacted us to shoot for their family photos in Essen!

    What’s more, we get to meet the cutest little Sean who was just started to walk. When we brought him to the park with his new walking toy, he was unstoppable! He was so excited to walk and he was unseparable with his new toy. He has that cutest smile that made you fell in love with him right away.

    Thank you Jason & Singyun for your kind hospitality, for the short tour around the city and most of all, for inviting us to capture your beautiful little family!

    Bernard + Jessica | Through The Seasons

    by Ian

    Bernard & Jessica has almost opposite character & personalities. Bernard is the extrovert, fun and easygoing, while Jessica is the introvert one, she tends to keep it to herself. But instead of getting them into a disagreement, it become the reason why they are strong together as a couple. Whenever she is feeling a little low, he will always be there to cheer her up. When he feels anxious, she’s the one to calm him down. They acknowledge their differences and it made them even closer. They complete each other.

    The season theme is actually inspired by Jessica’s dream of winter wedding theme. It was Summer when we reach Queenstown, fortunately there were some spots that still covered in snow. So to pull the winter theme we went shooting on top of glacier at Mt Cook. Such an amazing view! I was a little bit nervous back then, cause we were standing on the frozen lake and some part of it wasn’t a firm iced. Glad everything went well.

    Thank you Bernard & Jessica for the amazing experience in Queenstown. May your love continue to grow through all the seasons of life.

    Calvin + Ceinlys | Where It Begins

    by Ian

    We’re excited to finally share you this sets of prewedding photos we took awhile ago for Calvin & Ceinlys in US.

    It’s interesting how our path crossed, given the fact they both are from Hongkong, they found out about us and decided to engage our service only through Skype chat. Their bold move led us to an awesome adventure in San Fransisco and a beautiful friendship afterwards.

    We did a photo clip based on how they met, just watch the video!

    Here’s to the cheerful, cute, funny and daring couple, Calvin & Ceinlys! Thank you for trusting us and for the fun photo session back in SF. Hope to see you guys soon!

    Brian + Tania | Lovestruck

    by Ian

    We love this awesome couple! Not only they are generous, caring, easy going, and fun to be with, but they also share the same passion of food with us! I didn’t feel like being on assignment at all, I felt like I was going on a trip with friends.

    Starbucks has more meaning than just their favourite drinks. In the beginning of their relationship, Brian used to drove all the way from Karawaci (suburb of Jakarta) where he stayed to Tania’s house in Jakarta just to bring her favourite drink from Starbucks. So whenever Tania sees Starbucks, it reminds her of Brian and how much he loves her. Isn’t it sweet? Of course we had to include it in the photoshoot as props!

    Thank you Brian & Tania for your kindness, for being the best travel companion, and for your trust in us! Hope to catch up with you guys soon!

    Brian + Imelda | Wedding Day

    by Ian

    Mid last year we went to Singapore to capture their pre-wedding photoshoot. We had a great time with them and now I want to share their beautiful wedding that took place in Ayana Bali.

    At the morning of their wedding I remember worrying about the rain as the sky started to turn dark, but suddenly the sun was out and the heavy clouds were gone. The day was blessed with good weather (even during rainy season) and everything went perfect. Imelda looked so radiant and beautiful and Brian’s face was full of smiles all day. The decor was so pretty and the guests were enjoying the atmosphere and the delicious food. It was a happy and beautiful day.

    Thank you for giving us the privilege to capture your most wonderful day, here’s wishing you two a blissful & blessed life together through sun and rain :)

    Kai Yee + Daphnie | I Married Adventure

    by Ian

    When I met Daphne & Kai Yee, I knew we are going to have an adventure. Although l didn’t expect our trip would be this fun.

    Both of them are very busy professionals. The only time we can meet them o discuss the preparation of the photoshoot is between 6 to 10am. After that hour, they will be so occupied until late at night. They work hard, but as the saying goes “Work hard, play hard”. They clearly know how to live up to it.

    Daphne is a cheerful girl who brings sunshine wherever she goes. Kai Yee is a patient and kind hearted guy who will go all out to make Daphne happy. I can see they both are a perfect match from the way Kai Yee calmed Daphne when she’s nervous and Daphne brings smile to Kai Yee and make him the happiest man. They treated each other with such respect and love.

    During the shoot, initially we didn’t plan to went up the Remarkables mountain but when he proposed the idea at the spot, they were quick to jump at it. I love the spontaneity of Daphnie and Kai Yee! They are always up for new adventures. We took a heli ride to went up the mountain and the view was absolutely stunning. This is something you must do if you’re in Queenstown. It was a breathtaking sight!

    Thank you Daphne & Kai Yee for trusting us completely, for the fun road trip, for the great company of you and your brother, and most of all for your bright spirit and smiles. We wish you a wonderful adventure as you begin your new life together.

    Rio + Vince | Why We Love

    by Ian

    Here something to brighten your week. There are some reasons why we love Rio and Vince, our Melbourne-based couple.

    First, they have great personalities. Rio can be cool and goofy at the same time, while Vince is a lovely girl with the kindest heart. Second, they add personal touch to the photo shoot by adding their own writings to the props that we designed for them.

    Also, they went extra miles to find perfect photo location. Vince is always very fond of flowers & gardening. She even grows her own backyard garden in Melbourne. That’s why she would really love to have her photos taken in canola field. Both of them went on canola hunt for about a month before the photoshoot took place. It was a bit drizzling when we reached there, so we quickly jumped from the car and I started to shoot like mad! It was really fun and we all had a good laugh.

    Thank you Rio & Vince for the good times we had and for hosting us while we’re in Melbourne. I hope when you look at these photos you’ll be reminded on why do you love and continue to fall in love for each other. Can’t wait to see you two on your wedding day!

    Andy + Lanny | Wedding Day

    by Ian

    Remember Andy & Lanny’s fun pre-wedding photos that we took in Melbourne last year? Few months after, we flew back to Melbourne to be part of their wedding ceremony which was held in the church where they are rooted and grew together for years.

    After the ceremony, the thoughtful couple ushered their guests to a buffet lunch spread and entertained them with a cute animated video of their funny love story.

    The day went really well. I could see everyone’s happiness through their bright smiles. It was really a joyful day for everyone. The happiness is indeed infectious!

    Thank you Andy & Lanny for trusting us to capture your happiest day. We are grateful for you and your friendship.

    Stay tune for their wedding reception in Jakarta.
