Veronica+Kelvin: The one with a vintage car and a cheongsum gown

August 16, 2011

I’ve been cracking my brain, trying to figure out how to name this album – “In the mood for love”, “”Vintage Chic”, “Timeless eternal vintage…in a car”…

Veronica+Kelvin are a cool and laid back couple who have known and loved each other for, I believe 11 years.

“I’ve been waiting for this day”, “Finally, you two!” were the words I heard most said amongst their friends and family on their wedding day. And it seemed that the people around them were happy these two were finally walking down the isle as husband and wife.

We took time out during their wedding day to shoot some portraits with the vintage chauffeured car that Fullerton Hotel provided. Driving just down the road from their place, we stopped by the side and spent about 10mins getting these shots. I especially loved Veronica’s cheongsum inspired gown, which I think the vintage car complimented quite nicely. Hence, the wickedly obvious title.

Interview with the Dazza

August 08, 2011

As part of the Wedding Photographers Network (WPN) ongoing series of articles, I got down and personal in an interview on the blog.

Dazza Pictures - Wedding Photography. Singapore

Tell us a little about yourself.
Hello, I’m Dazza but my real name is Darryl. I’m Singaporean, music makes me happy and alcohol gets me drunk. I’ve lived in the East side of Singapore all my life – grew up skateboarding around East Coast Park, Katong, Bedok and Changi. My favourite colours are yellow, black and blue. Oh, and I really love coffee.

Tell us about the typical ‘Dazza’ approach to wedding portrait photography (pre-wedding).
We talk, we laugh and we just enjoy being ourselves. I feel that there is a joy within every couple just knowing that they love each other and that they are getting married. I just try to capture them for who they are as real, as natural and uncontrived as we can. I think we remember moments and hold them closer to our hearts when we know that there is a meaning or a story behind it. For all of us, that is a bit more meaningful than an image that is just pretty. And I think we look back in fondness at precious photos and recall “Remember that day when this was shot and we were happy just being together. This is us”.

Check out the rest of the interview on the WPN blog.

Jacinta + Roy {Wedding}

July 21, 2011

wedding photography, barker road methodist, singapore

Jacinta and Roy were fellow ‘Labbers’ from Satchi Labs who love all things Japanese. I soon discovered Roy’s love for action figures and I reckon his collection beats my one Stormtrooper figurine any day.

Their day began with a church solemnization at Barker Road Methodist Church where Jacinta arrived in a gorgeously simple gown and was accompanied down the aisle with her friends and nieces as bridesmaids and flower girls. The couple then pledged their union in front of God, family and friends.

We took some time out after to shoot some portraits at the venue and then proceeded to Four Seasons hotel for their wedding dinner.

I couldn’t help feeling such a warm sense of fellowship amongst J+R and their friends, as I listened to all their speeches that evening. Especially when Roy’s friends, including his father came on stage for an encore ‘old boys’ cheer and toast to the couple.

A brief moment frozen which in reality quickly passes, as barely an hour later, do the bride and groom walk down these same steps as husband and wife.

Priceless.” Roy never saw Jacinta in her bridal gown till the day of the wedding. Special surprises like these are so precious.

Journeys – KTM

June 07, 2011

Journeys - KTMA couple of months back in April, the photogs’ from the Wedding Photographers Network (WPN) embarked on a train ride up north through Malaysia. We had been talking about heading out of Singapore for a collective overseas trip, to “re-charge, re-fresh and re-treat”. And so as the stars would have it, we left on a journey purely via the KTM railway line through Malaysia, armed with backpacks, cameras and our mobile phones, where we shot, shot and shot even more.

Very little about the journey was planned, all we knew was that we had 3 days, 2 stops and 15 of us together. I lost count of the number of kilometers we travelled, but it must have been ‘very a lot’ of kilometers if we had been in the trains for a total of about 15hrs each way. Coming along for the journey were also the cinematographers from Ichiro Films who documented our journey which also involved three photographers just starting out in the wedding industry. The three photographers were shortlisted from a portfolio review and interview session, their train tickets and lodging for the trip were fully sponsored by the WPN.

At the end of it, I felt I really enjoyed the journey with everyone. As cliched as it may sound, the trip really offered us all the chance to bond and to get to know each other better. Because despite all of us running separate photography businesses, the guys at WPN are just really great friends that are a blast to be around with.

Here’s a selection of shots from the trip, drop by the Facebook page for a whole bunch more of pics.

“The best camera, is the camera you have.” And that was what made my iPhone the best camera on the trip too.

ISPWP Spring 2011 Contest

May 27, 2011

Am so stoked to hear that one of my images placed within the Top 10 of ISPWP’s Spring 2011 Contest.

Coming in at 8th place of the ‘Framing the Subject’ category, was an image from Krist + Diana’s solemnization. As much as it seems like an image that was carefully framed and shot, the moment between K + D was totally candid and unposed. They had snuck away during dinner for some quiet time together, whilst chatting and standing in front of a mirror in the reception area, Krist leaned in to give Diana a peck on her cheeks. *Click.

It was one of those moments that just transpired at the right place, at the right time. An image I personally really like and am delighted that others have thought of it worthy to be awarded.

Congrats are also in order for a bunch of my fellow WPNer’s, who also placed tops in the contest.

DazzBook – Facebook me

April 23, 2011

Hello there :)

The last month or so has been a little bit crazy. I had expected April to be a moderately light month, with just a couple of shoots scheduled. But it turned out to be a lot more crazier when, first the folks and I at WPN decided to take a trip by train up to Malaysia, then Amanda Lee invited me to be part of a wedding show which was then immediately followed by a 2 week in-camp reservist training.

To put it in perspective, this is how the last 3 weeks for me looked like:
April 11 Calendar
WPN: Journeys, Wedding Shoot, Wedding Show, Reservist: In-pro, Book-out, Wedding Shoot, Book-in, Reservist: 3 day outfield exercise, Out-pro. Well, to the master procrastinator this is a packed schedule.

So with the brief moments in-between, I found myself updating my twitter, facebook, instagram accounts a bit more than the blog. While I enjoy blogging and look forward to posting stuff here, my other lifestreams let me post brief snapshots and rants quickly. Also, with Facebook’s neat gallery function I’ve been posting some quick posts of ‘Sneak Pics’ from recent shoots which haven’t gone up here yet on the Dazza Pictures Facebook page.

So if you’re a kay-po social media addict like me, come ‘friend, follow or like’ me on these social media sites. I’ll be sure to kay-po you back ;)

Featured on Rock and Roll Bride {Melissa+Alan}

March 22, 2011

Stoked.

Stoked is the word to describe how I feel right now that Melissa+Alan’s portraits have been featured on Rock n Roll Bride. If you love – out of the ordinary, non-conformity and basically not being part of the cookie-cutter brigade, than you would already know about Kat Williams and her Rock n Roll Bride blog.

Rock and Roll Bride {Melissa+Alan}

Kat’s blog is one kick ass venue for any bride that believes “It’s not about being ‘cool’, being a rebel or even thinking of the most unique idea you can, it’s about planning a wedding that reflects you and your partner and declaring your love in your way.”

A persona I find most closely relates to the pictures I seek to make. And I couldn’t say it any better than how Melissa+Alan put it -

“We just wanted to be ourselves. No magical fairy tale kind of wedding, no heels, no leather shoes, no cummerbunds. Super down to earth and casual that says ‘This is Melissa and Alan’.”

So rock on and check out the blog post on Melissa & Alan’s Multi-Outfit Wedding on the Rock n Roll Bride.
