Chris & Lydia ~ Portraits in Melbourne


More than pre-wedding shots in bridal gowns and formal suits, its casual portrait sessions like these which I hold close to my heart. When couples get to really be themselves, enjoy each others presence and look back on these photos thinking “Now that session wasn’t too torturous” ;) then I know my job’s done for the day.

Here are some of my favourite shots from that time when I hung out with Chris and Lydia in Melbourne, just shooting portraits at some of their favourite spots. Enjoy :D

Steph & Oleg

Categories, Weddings


A vibrant, bubbly girl with a smile which can brighten up a whole room.
A boy who initially appears to be an introvert but is actually quite witty once he starts warming up to you.

A brief encounter at an airport in Europe during their transit flights back to their respective cities (which is nearly 10,000km apart). Emails sent to each other where she initially lies about her real name as she was a bit wary of his background. After a few months of emails and skype, he flies across the Indian Ocean (or was it the South Pacific Ocean? ;D) to surprise her over the Christmas holidays even though they’ve only met each other in person once.

Sounds like it came straight out from a movie.

But this was how Steph and Oleg’s relationship started. Despite all odds. These two are another proof that love really is an unpredictable, funny thing.

And after some time on a long distance relationship, Steph and Oleg decided to embark on their next adventure. And boy oh boy, if their wedding celebration is an indication of how their married life would be, once can be assured that it’ll be filled with much love and great times ahead :)

Wedding Ceremony Venue : Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Klang

Noel & Kimbeley


I constantly get asked what’s my favourite locations for couples portrait sessions. I could easily say places like Kundasang Park, Fremantle, London, Istanbul but after having shot so many couples in the last (nearly!) 8 years, my favourite location is where the couple is most comfortable and at ease with each other. Sure, as a photographer I’d love to shoot at stunning, exotic locations but if I am unable to bring out the essence of my clients and make the session fun for them, then however novel that location may be, it still won’t be my favourite.

So when couples say they want to have a casual engagement shoot at within their neighbourhood, I know for a fact that whatever happens, they’ll definitely look back at the photos with tons of memories. Not only from the shoot day itself but when they show the photos to their kids in the future, they’ll be able to say “This was where we used to hang out a lot before we got married” or “This is the park where we went to for jogging”. Cos for me, at the end of the day, photos with memories would definitely always triumph over pretty photos. Plus point when you get BOTH pretty photos and memorable ones ;)

That being said, here’s some of my favourite shots from Noel and Kimbeley’s portrait session done quite some time back in TTDI. Yes, all locations were within 5 – 10 minutes drive from their home :) We incorporated some of their favourite things – food and fitness, and kept everything laidback and true to their self. Now that’s my kinda favourite location :)
