I’ve been shooting the Salinas’ family portraits since 2010 when they were based in Kuala Lumpur. Back then they only had two little ones and now they’ve got three adorable daughters whom they say are quite a handful! It’s always a pleasure to have repeat clients when it comes to family sessions for its such a joy to see the little ones grow up. Good reminder to that time’s fleeting and I really should cherish it :)
Sharing some of my favourite shots in this post which include the ones which aren’t your conventionally “pretty” family photo, where the girls are mucking about and just being themselves. Hopefully they’ll look back on these photos when they’re older and treasure the fun times they had with their siblings and loving (as well as very very patient!) parents
A bittersweet wedding this was. A bit sad cos Koja was going to move to Saudi after the wedding but mostly happy because Mahmood and her finally got married after dating for many years :) It was a great celebration on the day with their solemnisation ceremony followed immediately by lunch reception at 9 Kedondong in Ampang.
With family from near and far attending the event, it was good to see that Koja and Mahmood managed to catch up with close friends and also family members throughout :D Koja and Mahmood, hope you’re both settling down well into married life in Saudi and thank you again for having us document the wedding celebrations for you!
Seeing that I was actually hired by the groom’s father to shoot the festivities, I never actually got to meet the couple until the start of the 3 day festivities itself. But as luck would have it, Trishay and Crystal were a breeze to shoot. With totally no expectations, except for having their fun and happy moments captured and a totally laidback demeanor throughout the celebrations as well as family members who were super duper hospitable, it turned out to be one of those shoots where I felt like I was a full on guest instead of the ‘hired photographer’ LOL!
As with many of the shoots that I’ve done, it wasn’t easy to pick which photos I want to share on the blog. But I’ve gotten to the point of not seeking perfection in my blog posts, and not having a fixed type of style as to how I blog. I figured that the important thing is that I don’t post up a crazy amount of photos and the photos are those which are close to my heart.
Pretty simple innit? :) So with that in mind, here are some of my favourites from Trishay and Crystal’s traditional Indian wedding ceremony in Kuala Lumpur.
