David & Anantha’s Outdoor Engagement Photo Shoot

Here are some casual outdoor engagement style photos taken of David and Anantha in Shah Alam recently. Before the shoot, we had decided on a theme and a set of scenes for the shoot. These were well prepared and thought by David and Anantha.

A huge thank you goes out to Fauziah who helped organise the shoot, we could not have done it without you! Fauziah is Arshia’s mom, one of my earlier clients from a birthday party shoot which I photographed last year.

These are just some of the sneak preview photos taken of the outdoor shoot. To view more photos of this event, head to David & Anantha’s Outdoor Portrait Session Gallery

Food Photography & Review: Italian on Sixth

If you’re ever at Pavillion Mall, KL shopping and wondering where to get a good meal which is worth every penny, then take the escalator up to the 6th floor for some sweet Italian surprise! Cosily tucked away, this restaurant is so sleek and modern looking with a drink counter just outside its restaurant.

Thinking that this was just another Italian restaurant, I was pleasantly surprised to find my palate tantalised by the delicious food served here, the fresh ingredients coupled with a modern style of cooking made me want seconds of the food helping and yes, I almost ate every one of the bread sticks ;o)

The full review of this restaurant will appear in August’s issue of KLue magazine. To read the review click me.

Baby Portrait Session with Ariez

Photographing 5-month old baby boy Ariez was such a dream as he was calm, happy and photogenic which made the shoot more fun and exciting. I was a little apprehensive in the begining as we started the shoot quite early but Baby Ariez was wide awake and looked even more excited than us.

This outdoor family portraiture was photographed in the lavish greenery of Putrajaya and we were blessed with having beautiful weather!

As a photographer, its always nice to get specific request from clients wanting a particular style or theme for their outdoor portraiture as its allows me to create different photographs from the norm and challenge myself further. Assad and Dr Jaseema specially requested for more subtle looking photographs with more of a soft lighting effect than overly colourful looking photos to obtain a more sophisticated and classy look.

So here are some sneak preview photos of 5-month old Baby Ariez with his parents. Hope you enjoy viewing them and feel free to leave comments if you like.

Food Photography & Review: KangSane Korean Restaurant

The next time you’re in Ampang, KL and wondering what to eat, head over to Little Korea where you will find an ample supply of restaurants serving all types of Korean delicacies. If you’re especially interested in Korean Barbecue, then you must try the Big Size Galbi at KangSane Korean BBQ Restaurant which is one of their signature dishes. Parking here can be a bit tough during office hours, so be prepared to park along the housing area and walk a little.

Here are some images taken during the day of a few of their dishes. A full write-up of the restaurant review will appear in the June issue of KLue magazine. To read the review click me.

Holy Redeemer Church Confirmation Photography

I’ve photographed Holy Communion shoots for HRC Church in Klang before but this was the first time I was photographing the Confirmation Students. The conferments are much older, mainly 17 years old and this would be one of the sacraments they receive as a Catholic.

Instead of the parish priest, the Archbishop will be the person to place his hand over the conferment’s head and anoint them, the Archbishop will also bestow the gifts of the Holy Spirit to each of them.

There were about 38 conferments in total and the event went on smoothly thanks to the organising committee. Here are some images taken during the mass on 23 May 2010.

Food Photography & Review: Kirishima Japanese Restaurant

Situated in one of the trendiest and busiest places in Kuala Lumpur, Kirishima is based in the hip building of Dua Annex on Jalan Tun Razak just walking distance away from KL Twin Towers. The design of the restaurant is a mixed of old and new. Beautiful chandeliers hang on the wall amidst sake bottles and tea cups in the background. Private rooms facing lush greenery are also available for dining in. If you can’t get the waiter, don’t worry, just press a button on your table and they are at your service.

The food served in this restaurant is exquisite and tantalises the palate as the chef takes time to ensure that each dish is not only delicious but also aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Here are some photographs taken of the restaurant. A full write-up of the restaurant review will appear in the June issue of KLue magazine. To read the review click me.

Pre-Wedding Outdoor Photo Shoot

I recently had the opportunity to assist a photographer friend of mine, Steph Tan during one of her outdoor pre-wedding shoots. The couple, Matt and Jen will be having their wedding in September. Matt is from Hong Kong while Jen who is Malaysian is currently also living in Hong Kong.

There was a two parter to their pre-wedding photo, one done indoor in the centre of Kuala Lumpur while the second done outdoor at a park. I joined Steph, Amru, Angie (make-up artist) and even CM Leung for the outdoor session, it was a fabulous day as it didn’t rain (I guess our rain dance worked!) and we managed to brave the tons of mossies’ and leeches around.

Here are some of the sneak preview shots of the day.
