Alex & Cindy - Their Wedding

Share Date: 27th January 2013, Sunday
Time: Dawn, literally dawn, 5am
Weather: Started out without any lights outside to a bright morning after
Location: Damansara and Kepong

Actually the day started the day before, on 26th January, Saturday. I packed up my stuff after Patrick and Samantha's wedding and drove to the bride's place. Why? I had to to be there by 4.45am on Sunday, so it makes sense that I just spend the night there, so that I can make it there on time.

So when I arrive, after I got lost in the area for like 20 minutes, we discussed the run down and everyone went to bed waiting for the big day.

The day started with my alarm buzzing at 4.30am and at about 4.35am the bride knocks on my room door and says "Coffee time". So that how the day started. And a big thank you to one of the sister's (ji mui), Mei Ji, for the chocolate bread breakfast. It's simply bread with chocolate spread but given the circumstances, it was a great breakfast.

Enough blabbering, here are some photos

So that is all for the morning session photos. For more photos and enquiry, do contact us here.

Patrick & Samantha

Date: 26th January 2013, Saturday
Time: Dawn
Weather: Cool morning and later bright afternoon, hot but windy
Location: Puchong

This is the wedding of a friend of mine, Patrick, who is also my mentor, he taught me a lot during the days we were colleague. He was single when I knew him and after a short time, he met his love of his life and now tying the knot with his lovely bride, Samantha. I don't really know how their story is but I am very sure it is a beautiful story.

So back to the wedding story, I was to cover Samantha's side while shooting buddy Roy and Victor covered Patrick's side. Both family have not much experience and so it was up to us to give them small advice as we see fit so that everything goes on smoothly, and smoothly it went. So it was an early morning, I was to be there by 6.30am. Luckily it was only a 5 to 8 minutes drive from my place and thus I have enough sleep. The drive there should take only 5 to 8 minutes, I said should be because that is the amount of time needed if you knew your way well enough. Haha and sadly I don't, even with the map on my hand. Am I bad or what?  Anyhow, after a few phone call to the busy bride, I finally made it there, greeted by the family and the dog.  The groom and his gang arrived and the games went on. Everything was just great and went really smooth.

So after the morning session, it was time to head to the reception lunch. Lucky for us, the tea ceremony was short and simple, so we had time to take a coffee break before we start work at the lunch reception. And gosh, this is the smallest reception I ever done. 5 tables and 1 main table, a total of only 6 tables. It was small, yes but it was one of the best reception I ever covered. Everyone mingle around, no odd people that the bride and groom doesn't know, everyone has time to eat (heck, even us, the photographers) and everyone had a good time. Enough said, photos time

There we have it, a happy couple. I have managed to compile a video montage with a little more photos than what you see here. For those that is NOT on mobile platform, the video is here (YouTube) or for those on mobile platform (it works for non mobile platform as well), the video is here (Vimeo). Enjoy

A big congratulations to the new couple Mr and Mrs. Patrick Teoh (Patrick and Samantha). Also not forgetting the to thank my shooting buddy, Roy and Victor for all the help and assistance.  Please help support our Facebook page, Iceman Collection

Celebration of Love: Alex and Cindy Pre-Wedding

Share Date: 2nd August 2012, Thursday to 4th August 2012, Saturday
Time: 3 days of shooting
Weather: cloudy, with rain. Occasional sunshine, but mostly raining.
Location: remote island somewhere in the south of Malaysia (I think)

The journey, started in Singapore where I am permanently based now. It was on a afternoon where the sun is bright. I took a bus to Changi International Airport and took a 45 minutes flight to the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. Well the airport is pretty much outskirt, but I wouldn't complain, as my house is only 20 minutes away from the airport. So after spending the night with my family, I slept early and got ready for the shoot. Checked my batteries, grip, memory cards, flashgun, and I make sure I packed everything I needed for the shoot. It was going to be an early day the next day.

I couldn't sleep much, woke up quite early and got ready. The guys would be reaching at about 8am. The guys, referring to the bride, Cindy and groom, Alex and my shooting buddy Roy. As I sip my coffee, trying to kick start my system, I got a text, they are at Oldtown drinking coffee. Haha...and I actually wake up early for nothing. So what a man can when facing such situation?, browse facebook lor, what else right? Can't boot up the laptop, it takes darn long so end up using the little iPhone 4 to browse facebook. Anyhow, they finally arrived and the long drive to the south starts.

Nothing major during the ride, just some chit chat and talking nonsense. And we arrived at the destination getting ready to take a boat to the remote island. Ohh wait! How can I forget, we were late for the boat again! Yes, again. We've been there before for a nice holiday, we were late then. This time around we thought we can make it on time with time to spare, but turns out, we were late again. Haha, don't ask me how or why, no one knows. Alex was driving like a rally driver and the 2 photographers was swinging from left to right and left again. And phone calls were flying like crazy during the ride there, cooking up lies to cover our late arrival. Haha, anyhow, we managed to get a boat to the island and had our lunch. So off we go to the shoot...after we took short naps :P hey we all need a good power nap after the long drive, yes? Any how...

Day 1: Casual
Time: Evening
Weather: weather was warm and humid with nice amount of sun and clouds to soften the sunlight.
Photos from day 1

Day 2: Wedding gown
Time: Early morning
Weather: Cloudy with some sunshine afterwards

Day 2 started quite early but the weather was not on our side. It was cloudy in the morning and during preparation, rain started to fall. So we all end up taking breakfast and having coffee till late morning when the sun decided to come out for a little peek...Photos from Day 2, morning session

Day 2: Casual gown
Time: Early evening
Weather: Hot sun with occasional breeze.
After lunch break and a few cups of coffee, (I know! we love our coffee. Coffee is good!) we get ready for the 2nd part of the shoot with a slightly less formal, more casual kind of gown. Just to bring the mood to a more casual one....

And finally the last set
Day 2: Casual gown
Time: late evening
Weather: Cloudy with rain coming fast
This is a more casual selection. It supposed to be a more relaxed shoot, but as we are running against the cloudy skies that promises to bring heavy rain, we had to really shoot fast. After a few shots, the rain did come, with heavy rain. So we retreat back to our little resting place and drank more coffee. Lucky for us, the rain stopped after a while and we managed to catch a few more shot before we call it a day.

So that's all for this collection of photos. A very big thank you to the couple Alex and Cindy for letting me to be a part of something this big and also a big thank you to shooting buddy Roy for helping out with the shoot and capturing some beautiful moments which I have missed.
