Bridal Portraits

In Your Embrace

Photo by Joshua K of Inlight Photos. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It is really nice how Joshua manages to capture emotions and warmth in his photos. It’s not easy, especially when couples are aware that they are being photographed. Of course it helps that May and Chee Fang are both pretty good-looking. That gold dress is an awesome surprise and goes unexpectedly well with the whole look.

A Date With Their Dogs At The Park

You don’t really need to cross the ocean, climb the highest mountains or put on a few-thousand-dollar gown to do your bridal portraits. Sometimes the most beautiful moments are those we have every day and they are worth capturing too. Dianne and Maynard did just that – a walk in the park with their dogs. Lying down on the grass and just having that great time together. Because many years from now, you’ll want to remember how it all started, why you love this person so dearly, and everything you treasured. Sometimes age steals that away from us. The Huskies and Shih Tzu are so adorable, we could look at these photos all day. Thanks, Marlon Capuyan, for once again making ordinary things look so beautiful.

Distance Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

Michelle Pineda Photography. Styling by Tipping Point Collective. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Long distance relationships suck, but when they end in marriage, they create some of the most beautiful love stories. Maan and Rafael were in a long distance relationship for almost six years. He was working as an architect in Abu Dhabi while she was finishing up her studies to become a medical doctor in the Philippines. Tipping Point Collective created a vintage look to add more character, along with love letters and a DIY tin can telephone to depict the long distance romance. Michelle Pineda’s photos brighten up our day!

Gown And Saddle

Photography by Gallerie CK. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Paul Kong of Gallerie CK recently photographed a couple at Bukit Timah Saddle Club. It is a beautiful place, and it’s nice to be quiet and get away from city life for a while. We cannot fathom how they got the horse to cooperate, but the shoot looks great.

Ingredients Of A Happy Marriage

The ingredients of a happy marriage: faith, love, laughter, and the sharing of each other’s dreams. Andri and Marcella know what they are talking about. This is a post-wedding shoot and we are really happy to see that after one year, they still look so in love with each other.

A successful marriage starts from the moment you leave the bed every morning. The extra time you have with each other instead of just grabbing your coffee and rushing out for work each day. We like the honesty of these photos; they make us burst out in laughter. Really adorable.

Red MINI

Iyao of Frame[S]tudio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Here are two of our favourite things put together, Coke and a MINI. Road trips are nice because they always remind us that we are on a journey. Like every bridal portrait or wedding, they are not the destination, merely part of a journey where two individuals celebrate their love for each other and pledge to finish the journey together. The photographer, Iyao, set the right mood for the shoot, and the floating alphabets are just adorable.

Just The Two Of Us

Photography by Wedoitforlove. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We have yet to find an answer as to why there are so many eccentric and colourful photoshoots in the Philippines, other than the country is filled with very happy and creative earthlings. We like both sets by Wedoitforlove, which make us really want to pack our bags and go on a road trip in that yellow kombi. The couple is also very well colour-coordinated and carefully styled, and they look outstanding despite the busy background.

Stephanie and Ronald did their bridal portraits in both Singapore and Bali. The Singapore one was more formal, and was done at the National Museum. We are especially impressed by Ronald’s kung fu pose in front of the Bruce Lee poster. The Bali set, on the other hand, was more casual and relaxed.

Andri Tei: “Ronald is my primary school friend. We thoroughly enjoyed both the photoshoots. The Bali trip was more of a holiday than a wedding photoshoot. It was definitely one of the most memorable photoshoots I’ve had thus far.”

The Time Tunnel

The first time we walked into the Time Tunnel Museum at Cameron Highlands, we knew right away that we just had to do a photoshoot here. This undiscovered place is filled with gems of yesteryears. Gone are the days of museum displays in glass cases. Here, you literally feel as if you’ve walked through a time tunnel and gone back in time. Thank God for our photographer, Jennifer of Jspy Photography, and the team, who were game enough to make the trip up to Cameron Highlands with us.

Chaiyen: “The surroundings are rather dark, so for the casual look we styled the couple in brighter colours. We brought Coke bottles for props as their wedding theme revolved around that. It is quite a journey from Kuala Lumpur, so we stayed two nights to ensure we would have sufficient time and enough rest before the shoot. We were worried that the place would be a bit too dark, but everything turned out perfect.”

Needless to say, we barely had enough time to do the beauty of this place justice. So the next time you are in Cameron Highlands, please visit the Time Tunnel Museum. You just need to pay a ridiculously low entry fee, and we promise you will go Instagram-crazy here.

It is our dream to one day pack our suitcases and go on a road trip in a sexy vintage car like this one, and do nothing except drive as far as the road can bring us. We love this set of photos by We Are Seekers; it looks so effortless yet is filled with character, adventure and hope.

Rock Stars

Rachel and Noel are college sweethearts. He is a hardcore guitarist while she loves to sing. The couple chose Route 196 because this is where Noel and his band perform regularly. The sign outside the bar showed their names and wedding date, which made a great save-the-date piece. The light painting is definitely one of our favourite features in this set; it made the photos look like a rock star’s concert.

Eugene Martinez Photography: “For one of the compositions, I played with the idea of Rachel’s shadow on the wall with Noel in the foreground to combine the two of them. I also added light painting to give a rock star feel. I asked them to stand facing each other for 30 seconds while I painted with lights and an alternative song played in the background.”
