This series were sitting in my desktop for quite some time... I'm glad I have a better grasp on time this year. I would say it's a fate to meet Jane introduced by a photographer friend of mine who is not available on her wedding date. Jane & Walter was one of my very first wedding client who booked me to shoot their engagement portrait, registration of marriage and wedding day back in year 2010 which is the first year I started off full time in this field. That time, I don't even have much portfolio to show people but still they entrusted me to perform the task, one's all wedding need in this life. When communicating digitally, I still remember Jane stopped me when I use the word client referring to her and Walter. She said, Milan, we wanted to be your friend but not client. That line alone strucked me by surprise and I still remember until today. Both of them are super friendly and easy going, I believe meeting good people and friend from what I do is an experience that's priceless to any photographer. You will just meet but you will not be able to ask for, I'm thankful that throughout my career, I've met countless of nice couples too.
Anyway, Walter is a kind and fun guy. He were very secretive about his proposal plan when I asked after the engagement portrait(at this point, wedding day photography was booked, date was set too). Did you know that he proposed a minute before they sign the certificate of marriage before the registrar? He performed his magic last minute with a lot of red roses which I don' t even expect too! This is a series of their engagement portrait done back in 2010 and a bit of portrait we did before their registration of marriage at the Tanjung Bungah Beach Hotel, Penang.
&.b.t.w. - All shots were done in Penang too and makeover by Joan Tan.
&.&.b.t.w. - Till date, Jane still recommend her friends to us by her own free will and I am super thankful for her being one of our first super 'spokesperson'! :D
