A shoot right in the heart of our city this time round for the couple Rita and Michael, who wanted me to capture a series of images for them against some of the iconic landmarks to remember their time by in Singapore, as they may have plans to relocate a few years down the road.
Just had a rather “impromptu-ly” arranged photo shoot session with husband and wife team Ray and Stacy, who contacted me just a few days before they arrived in Singapore for a one week business/holiday trip.
Being their first time here, instead of “selfie-ing” their way through, Ray wanted to capture something more “in the moment” and also for him and his wife to appreciate Singapore’s culture and heritage as a visitor rather than an over zealous owner of a DSLR. I was more than glad to schedule a photo shoot with him and decided to center our shoot and show them around Chinatown, where they are staying at.
This was also a rather different challenge for me to try to capture the same standard and quality of images as before but with minimal art direction/instruction from me to the couple and to catch the spontaneity of the moments naturally as it happens.
I hope they will enjoy their remaining stay in Singapore and here are some images from our photo tour around Chinatown.
How often are we actually able to celebrate the second chances that our lives have for us?
As Jennie celebrated Rong Qing’s birthday with a photo session for the two of them, more importantly, I guess the shoot also signifies a new chapter of their relationship as they get back together again as a couple for a second time after parting ways several years back.
They had wanted to do a shoot during their previous relationship together but missed the chance to do so as they broke up many years back then. I’m glad to be able to play a part in capturing these moments for them this time round and wishing them all the best as they embarked on this journey together a second time.
