May 2010


On 16 May 2010, Sonas & Lihsang had a very simple Solemnisation at Jurong Country Club with close friends & relatives. As a buddy of Sonas, I was suppose to be there to witness the whole event and enjoy the vegetarian buffet, but somehow I found myself slinging a Nikon 35mm F/2 + D700 on my left shoulder and a Nikon 85mm F/1.4 + D700 on my right shoulder… The rest of the story is as followed:


Look at those envy faces!


This is totally cool! Have you seen a bride using a DSLR and shooting during her solemnisation?


Lihsang’s mom was caught by surprise with her girl posing behind her ๐Ÿ™‚

Special thanks to Sonas & Lihsang for letting me test my new lens combination on their solemnisation procession. Love you 2 & all the best! โค

Iโ€™m once again honoured to be featured by Singapore Art Gallery Guide (SAGG) in their May 2010 Issue.

Steven & Joreen saw my photo express highlights during Sean & Serene’s wedding banquet last year December and decided engaged me to document their big day on 26 March 2010. Their wedding Banquet was held at Fort Canning Park, Singapore. It was a night of hugs, smiles, laughter and blessings for the the newly wed ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats to Steven & Joreen!

Sean & Serene had a special wedding, 1 wedding ceremony 2 wedding banquets, which had to be held on 2 separate days; 26th & 27th December 2010. It was a day of fun and 2 nights of food! Happy couple, happy guests & a happy photographer ๐Ÿ˜€

The day Ajin & Ardilles saw Chusna & Ayu’s actual day wedding photos, they were so touched, that they decided to sign up my wedding photography package without any hesitation. I would say a decision well-made, as they had to hold back their tears of joy at Mcdonalds, when viewing my photographs of their wedding day during 30th & 31st Jan 2010. A very touchy moments ๐Ÿ˜‰


The nervous and tearful groom ๐Ÿ™‚


Tears of joy flowing as Ajin puts on the ring for Ardilles.

Isn’t it so sweet that your hubby always take a peek at you unknowingly ๐Ÿ™‚


The contemporary granny! Totally COOL!

This is the part 2 of Chusna & Ayu’s 3 Day wedding. The 2nd & 3rd wedding day is more tearful compared to the 1st day… I was trying really hard to hold back my tears specially on the 3rd day… What can i say? I’m really a Sensitive New Age Guy ๐Ÿ˜›

You can also view Chusna & Ayu’s pre-wedding photos here.

Enjoy and all the best!

Chusna & Ayu’s Wedding is the biggest wedding I have photographed so far, which spanned across 3 days, from 11 to 13 December 2009. Therefore, this Artdate will be split it into 2 parts. Part 1 will focus on the solemnisation and Part 2 will be based on the wedding ceremony for both bride & groom family. This is really a touchรฉ wedding which i nearly cried while photographing.

Wow, finally i have time to Artdates with more Solemnisation & Weddings photos. On 29 December 2009, Fredy & Elysa had a simple Solemnisation in Singapore, witness by their relatives from Indonesia. A nice gentlemen and an elegant lady.

Special thanks to Maria Anastasia Meidiana for the recommendation. ๐Ÿ˜‰
