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.
Today, as we welcome 12.12.12 (12 Dec 2012), we also celebrate Jessie’s birthday. I was already looking forward to this shoot as this was my first with a beautifully restored classic Volkswagen Kombi (finally, get to see it up close and personal and a joyride home on it after the shoot). Check out the Kombi Rocks website if you intend to rent one for your photo shoot.
I never knew it was such a challenge to look for an open space with greenery where the vehicle can drive up the grass field, though I managed to find this place (and it was illegal) after several recce trips. That’s Singapore, your urban jungle! We worked around the color theme pink and I am actually quite glad the color coordination and combination turns out much better than expected.
Boon Siew and Oliver wanted a non-conventional and more creative approach for their pre-wedding shoot. Being a funny guy himself, we decided to go along with a comical and fun approach to the shoot, just like how the two of them usually behaved, having fun and enjoying each other’s company as a couple.
Thus, ditching the conventional wedding suit and gown, the couple came out with their own wardrobe and locations while I assisted them with the art direction and props. They are a really fun pair to work with and I must say this is one of those shoots which I have really enjoyed myself and could not stopping laughing throughout. Haha!
