The more I got to know them, the more I like Tristen and Stefani. Not only because of their kind souls and fun personality, but because of their work ethics and the perseverance that they put in to reach their goals. Being away from home is already hard enough as it is, but to strive and prosper in a foreign land at a young age takes a strong and determined personality. These two millenials definitely do not meet the stereotype of that term ;)
I had the pleasure of shooting their Chinese wedding ceremony in Kuala Lumpur last year and a few months after, the pleasure of spending a few days in their lovely home in Auckland. It was also then that we had some fun times shooting this set of casual portraits.
Thanks again Tristen & Stefani for having me shoot you guys and not only for being my clients but turning into my friends too :D Do call me when you come home for a visit cos that’ll mean yoga + Burgerlab timeeee!
All the photos in this set were shot with the Sony RX100IV and initially I was a bit apprehensive. I mean, which photographer would shoot a portrait session with a compact camera? But…..I was delighted once we started the session and continued shooting til sunset.
The nifty lil camera was speedy and captured emotive shots way better than I expected. And despite the low light that we had towards the end of the shoot (2nd part of the shoot onwards), quality of the shots were still surprisingly decent. Definitely would recommend the Sony RX100IV if you’re looking for a small compact camera for daily use and also travelling!
