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
