Shot this yesterday during the Capturing Memories Wedding Photography Fair organized by The Westin Kuala Lumpur in co-ordination with Weddings Malaysia. Louis Pang Photography was on of the invited studios taking part in the one day event.
Organizing such even could be a challenging task but hats off to these people for making the event a success. While we had a photo booth for the couples who inquired us, it is an honor to be able to photograph the characters behind the scene. This is just a simple thing to show our gratitude. We love this photo, and hope you love it too.
Miri, is special to me.
It is a town where I had wonderful childhood until I was four. A town where I loved to hang out with friends and cousins. There was a home for me to be pampered by my grandma. Many more of those good memories. It is no other than my second home.
Since picking up wedding photography as career, I had a dream of taking some pre wedding photos in the resort city one day. If you like beaches, this is a definite place you can’t miss. The sun, the breeze and everything. As I suggested Miri as a location to some couples, I finally had one to synced alongside me. That’s non other than Claire and Adrian who willing took a 2-hour ride from Bintulu.
Because of both Claire and Adrian put so much trust in me, I got a little stressed to deliver. I admit I scouted the important spots of the town for a number of times, pulling juice of my imaginations, trying to frame many kind of shots I wanted to have for them and to make sure I was well prepared for the assignment. My belief of preparation is simple. God would not fail those who did their homework.
I sincerely hope the work has passed the benchmark of both Claire and Adrian. And here you go, some of the captures of the day.
Malaysia. USA. China.
This is how three different countries had their roles linking up a love story.
Rob, an American who did his Master in Beijing four years ago, met Elsa four days before she moved back to Malaysia. A little of chemistry would probably sparked in the new friendship during the first meeting. If it was God’s plan, and with strong will, nothing could stop anything from happening. This is how exactly they got in touch and developed the friendship to a courtship. If you wonder how, oh well, you certainly can’t ignore the role of the modern technologies. Putting aside the junky cell phone, or email, my rough guess would them to be thankful to a program called Skype.
Finally, Rob moved over. Residing in Kuala Lumpur and get localized. The seed of love was well taken care, and that’s how we at ShenSnaps Photography had the privilege to witness the vow of the two at a beautiful resort, The Andaman, Langkawi. We truly had great time with the beautiful couple, the family and the entourage during the shoot. A small, and yet a very cosy ceremony that chained the guests together. Everyone had fun, great fellowship, great food, and best wishes. To me, this is the best way to get married, and the best moments would be truly be remembered in their life time.
Jun Kit, the groom whom we have been in touch for months discussing the possible work-together on his special day via different communication tools. You count it, either mobile, SMS, whatsapp or email. To me, he is like having a mobile next to him all day round and ever ready to reply your text or email in seconds.
Jia Lee, on the other hand, we met on the first meeting discussing about the itinerary. The very first impression I had would be her signature dimple on the face. That is something special about this lady, and adds on to her charm. I am pretty sure it is a girls thing that she is one of the brides who also concern about what dress to wear, would the venue be great and so on. I am pretty alright to give my opinion based on my little experience although I am a boy.
We had the event taken part in the amazing horse theme hotel, one of the rare 6-star rated hotel we have in the Palace of the Golden Horses. What an honor to photograph in a suite room where a number of Prime Ministers, Presidents and some important officers of different nations who stayed there before.
