Themed casual pre-wedding portrait sessions are one of my favourite portrait sessions to photograph besides kid’s photography as a lot of thought process goes into setting up each shot. From location, props, make-up to clothes, I will most often come up wuth a concept to share with the couple or get them to propose some ideas. The whole process is so much fun and I enjoy this very much.
Maziah and Anaqi met when they were in high school in Kuching then they parted separate ways, somehow fate brought them together when they randomly met in KL. Both of them are so in love and capturing that in photos gives me a fuzzy feeling. They will be getting married on 23 December 2011 in Kuching, East Malaysia. The reunion is all the more beautiful as its a mixed marriage, Maziah is Malay while Anaqi is of Chinese origin.
For the photo shoot, we decided to do two different themes – the first is a pre-wedding portrait session while the second a school themed session to mimic the days when they were ditching school and hanging out in the park instead. Do enjoy these sneak previews.
Subha and Mahes found me via google and after a quick consultation decided on booking me for this casual outdoor portrait session or engagement photo session as it is sometimes known overseas.
I personally enjoy photographing these casual pre-wedding sessions which last no more than two hours as it is more dynamic and fun for the couple and photographer when compared to a traditional pre-wedding session which can take up most of a day and leave the couple physically and emotionally exhausted.
As a photographer it’s always inspiring with clients such as Subha and Mahes because they are both easy going and take directions easily, hence making the session a breeze. So I do hope you enjoy viewing this preview.

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
