Wedding : William x Shirlene
Back in the early January 2015, my fellow colleague approach me if I was free to do a shoot coverage of his gate-crashing event. Without hesitation I said YES!
I have always enjoy chinese gate-crashing. The games played are always surprisingly interesting to show how much the groom’s love to the bride. This time around, the groom, William, had to sing, draw, eat and answer 21-questions set by his mother-in-law.
The ever lovely bride Shirlene looks like Jeanette Aw(Mediacorp)!
Wedding : Dayalan x Rajini
I have always advised any photographers that if they can survive shooting an indian wedding, they can literally survive in any wedding.
10 years on and indian wedding has always been quite a challenge to me. The colors, the culture, the food, the chanting, the harmony in disharmony,.
One of the most colourful wedding is, an indian wedding.
The colours POP! Vibrant and alive.
There are many practices in indian culture. It varies from hindu indian, to christian indian to muslim indian. Each holds their own rituals and traditions. As a photographer one needs to be on the toes to adapt and learn these actions and rituals.
Talking about the food, all I can say, the food is wonderful. It ranges from the norm bread such as the roti to heavy gravy such as the pen-ya ( a sweet coconut gravy chicken ) to the mouth watering suji.
My congrats goes to both Dayalan and Rajini. May you guys have a the greatest marriage of all. Stay cool in Australia!
I have known Shalwa as a classmate since 2009, back when I was taking my Bachelor in Media Arts.
She is cool gal who is hardworking and always cracks jokes. She did came to me for a catch up to see how my photography business is doing. And on one day, she decided to engage Studiohakim as the official photography coverage for her wedding. Now she is married to her senior ex-schoolmate Mr Azli. May you both be blessed.
The approach to this shoot is casual. I shoot with the following equipment:-
– TWO Nikon D800
– ONE 17-35mm f2.8
– ONE 50mm f1.4
– ONE SB800 flash
The post-edit on the other hand, I wanted to emulate the earthy, brown with more black tones, however still maintaining the skin tone.
