Wedding of Davena+Lance

Earlier this year over the Chinese New Year weekend, we headed to Phuket, Thailand to shoot one of the most epic, awesome, amazing weddings ever at the Wedding of Lance and Davena. Picture this – a villa by the beach, facing the ocean, the sky painted in the bluest blue with the bride and groom reciting their vows as the setting sun washes the evening sky with a crimson red…

Phyllis+Kenneth get married

Wedding of Kenneth+Phyllis

Wedding of Kenneth+Phyllis

Phyllis is an old school mate of mine from our days in the NCC during secondary school. We hung out in the same circle of friends who jammed under void decks, smoked cigarettes in playgrounds and bought cans of beer to head down to East Coast Park. Somewhere along the way, the circle disbanded and we all lost touch after our days in Poly. Which was when Phyllis joined Singapore Airlines and met her man Kenneth.

As the stars would align it all, that circle of friends started getting together again for long chats over beer, pizza and whiskey at Timbre and St James. And at one of our night outs that Phyllis asks if I would photograph her wedding. The rest as they say is history.

Hello from Bali

June 18, 2010

rainbow_boat

There is no pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, only a dive boat.

Kenken Kebare. Here’s a shot as we were gearing up to dive at Manta Point, Nusa Penida. Caught a total of about 6-8 rays over two mornings, the sight of seeing them fly towards, by and away is amazing. A few more ‘sneak pic’ shots are on my posterous site at dazza.posterous.com/submerged-in-bali.

See you soon. :)

Bye bye Singapore. Hello Bali.

June 10, 2010

p1000085

I mean what more do I say with a post title like that?

Its the break we’ve been looking forward to – to catch some sun, sand and sea – and we’re taking it today. And while most of my peers might head there for work, I made it a point this trip not to organize any bookings for overseas shoots in Bali. And I’m unabashed to say that it was because I wanted time away from work related photography, time away from emails, time away from facebook, time away from twitter, time away from MSN, time away from google, time away from time…and to just have time for me, you and us.

So I’ll be away till the 23rd and am looking forward to a self prescribed dose of limited access to the Internet, which is why I will be slow responding to email and phone calls. I promise I will respond to all messages the quicker-est, faster-est that I am able to when I return.

In the meantime, live long and prosper \V/.

A beach side wedding with Joey+Deris

June 04, 2010

Wedding of Joey+Deris

Joey and Deris officially held the last beach side wedding at Shangrila Sentosa before it closed for renovations earlier this year.

Their casually themed ‘white’ wedding was celebrated by close friends and families who came from as far out as Canada. I love outdoor weddings for the light and to just be in the fresh air and Joey and Deris’ wedding definitely did not disappoint anyone with the brilliant sunset that evening. Their guests were surrounded by balloons, balloons, balloons, which made a glorious sight as they were released into evening’s sky after the couple’s entrance.

I left the wedding feeling warm (emotionally and physically) as I watched their families dance the evening away as most babas and nonyas love to do.

Tiffany + Leonard Wedding Day 2

May 31, 2010

Wedding of Tiffany+Leonard
Day 2 of Tiffany and Leonard’s wedding at the New Majestic Hotel. A cozy lunch with close friends and really interesting details.

The couple enjoy travelling and even before it became a popular spot for wedding shoots, Greece has been their destination of choice. Hence the theme revolved around the Greek islands of their personally made wedding details. Instead of numbers as labels for tables, each table was named after a Greek Island. ‘Roda’, ‘Archaravi’ and ‘Kalami’ were just some of the names of tables that guests looked for on the map of Greece corresponding to the guest list.

Adding to the Greek flavour, as wedding favours the couple gave out ‘Kombolói’ [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kombolói] which were purchased and shipped from Greece.

The same impeccable service and delicious food spread from New Majestic filled the hearts and tummies of the couples’ guests. It even made a lasting impression on me, I’m sure to be back for food and a stay.

This was an amazing wedding by a warm couple that I love who one of the few couples who started the 2010 wedding season back in January for me. Thank you guys. :)

Tiffany + Leonard Wedding Day 1

May 31, 2010

Wedding of Tiffany+Leonard

We last checked in with Tiffany and Leonard’s unbridal-bridal portraits.

Here’s a selection of moments from Day 1 of Tiffany and Leonard’s wedding solemnization and celebration with family at the New Majestic Hotel. I love cozy intimate lunch events which tend to be less hurried and stressful.

The couple were generous to save me a seat for lunch and I was totally blown away by the meal served. High quality yummylicious cantonese cuisine for a wedding. Top marks for the hotel and restaurant staff who were professional and very service oriented.

A series of gorgeous flowers were also designed by Lindt and her mother of 85 Flowers [ http://www.85flowers.com.sg/ ]. We learnt later that we are neighbors living in the same neighborhood, living in the vicinity of ‘Bedok 85′ hang out of all Eastie late night bak chor mee-ers.

Day 2 coming up in the next post…

Wedding of Tiffany+LeonardTiffany and Leonard got hitched earlier this year and these are their bridal portraits. For real. No cookie cutter white bridal gown with flailing veil, no suit and tie. But complimenting outfits that speak of who they are.
