5.5 years of wedding photography. And I still get emotional during weddings. Call me crazy, call me sappy, I’d like to think it’s because I still get excited for the couples whom I work with. And it’s weddings like Omar and Claire’s which rekindle that feeling in me.
Despite having a romance which started off like a scene out of a romantic comedy, where they were respectively the best man and bridesmaid, Omar and Claire are far from cheesy. Well, they try to steer clear anyway. Then they accidentally hired the cheesiest photographer in town. And from there on, all the cheese just fell in place. But this was not contrived cheese. It was actually real cheese. Cheese which gets you teary eyed and wish you had your own cheese too. Ok, enough talk about cheese, I’m getting hungry here.
Omar and Claire’s wedding celebrations started off with an intimate ceremony at one of my favourite churches in Kuala Lumpur, St Mary’s Cathedral followed by a fun-filled reception at Cyberview Lodge Resort in Cyberjaya. And one could tell that they really celebrated their union. With their family and close friends together in one venue, it was definitely a day to remember. Throughout the events, I also had the pleasure of having Yee Hong’s assistance, some of his shots of the newlyweds are featured in this blogpost :)
Omar and Claire, thank you for having us shoot your wedding. We were happy to see everyone enjoying themselves throughout the festivities and it made for really fun pictures! Wishing you both incredible years ahead filled with much love, laughter and great adventures! Much appreciation – Anna.
