Teik Hong + Bee Lynn 030109

“Whenever there is anything important which happens in my life, on that day it will surely rain.” This was what Teik Hong told me and it came true during their actual day wedding. And it was significant that we have a shoot under the rain to ratify this statement and furthermore signify such an important day in Bee Lynn and Teik Hong’s life.

Bee Lynn and Teik Hong was one of the 3 couples who have signed up with my Valentine’s package in 2008.  I shot their lifestyle portraiture back in March 2008 and it remained to be one of my favourite portfolio. And now, I have the honor and pleasure to shoot their actual day wedding. It was also a great pleasure that day to be able to work with another photographer, Anna-Rina. At first, I was quite worried how we were going to work things out on that day but thankfully, we did well working together. I want to thank Anna for covering some shots when I was somewhere else. It was fun working with her as she always make everyone laugh with her witty and fun going character.

That morning, it was drizzling. Actually the rain did not stop until later in late afternoon. I started shooting at Bee Lynn’s place for her preparation. Here are some of the highlights of the day:

I love it when “spectators” are not shy of my camera. This is how we can capture these shots, :).

Back to Teik Hong’s house. I spotted this quote “The New Story” at the back of this guy’s t-shirt and it signified Teik Hong and Bee Lynn’s new beginning (story) as married couple.

Bee Lynn could not control her emotions when her mother-in-law invited her as their daughter into the family.

She changed into her “kuah” during tea ceremony.

For this shot, they had to endure the rain for a few seconds. Thanks guys for doing this even it meant getting your clothes wet!

I realized there was a angry looking kid at the window after making this shot.

This cake is so pretty! The cake topper actually represented what both Bee Lynn and Teik Hong wore that night.

    Zach,

    After much time of having to work (very enjoyable one!) together, you should know how we feel about your consistently creative and beautiful pictures. We love our pre wedding pictures and you created another great remembrance for us on our actual wedding (although, you should have posted the video too as our CD can’t be played anymore as someone has accidentally burnt the surface of the CD with a cigarette during the night of the wedding!)

    Anyhow, rain or shine (you know the weather was extreme for our two sessions) superbly hot on our pre wedding and raining the entire day on our actual wedding day, you still manage to produce such great work. That’s passion and dedication.

    We are proud to be one of your very first couples in your journey to becoming an even better photographer. May your photography journey grow leaps and bounds. On another note, you look great in Hottie (HoTe).

    So, a BIG BIG thank you from the both of us and of course, will wait for you to be in BrisVegas one day.
