The first thing that struck me about Jerome and Jocelyn is that they are very chin chye (easy going) folks. I got to know them more than 2 years ago when they were searching for a photographer for their solemnisation. I think we were able to hit it off right away and somehow I was able to talk just about anything with them. For their casual pre wedding session, they decided to go to the Saddle Club at Bukit Timah. I was pretty stoked at the idea as it was my first time checking out the place!
My style of photography is that I rarely direct my couples specifically what to pose and what to do. I very much prefer for them to do what they do best – BEING IN LOVE, instead of listening to someone telling them how to look, etc. And Jerome and Jocelyn was just a natural when it comes to this, and I guess this shows how much they are in love with each other. Well, don’t take my word for it, enjoy the images below!
En route to Yosemite Park, CA USA. Captured on a Ricoh GXR, 28mm @ f8
Sometimes the opportunity to capture images that I like most are hidden within the most mundane and unremarkable of circumstances and places. I was en route to Yosemite Park on a coach and we stopped for a toilet break along the highway. Dawn was breaking and it was super cold. As I was making my way back to the bus, I saw some trees at a distance on a foggy field and as I went closer, saw this scene. This turned out to be one of my favourite images from my trip!
It seems so recent when I did a compilation of some of my favourite 2011 images. Now it is time to present to you, selected images that represent my body of work for 2012!
As always, this is only made possible through all of my amazing couples whom I have the privilege to work with, and who had entrusted me with my vision with some of their most special moments. Many of them I can now call friends, and this is really one of the best things that I love being a photographer.
