When it comes to photoshoots in Santorini, Greece, there is a pre-conception of how the photos will turn out – couples cuddling and looking sweet as they pose overlooking the Aegean Sea under the big blue sky.

Thankfully, this photographer wants more for each couple that comes his way. After looking at the attire they had in mind, he knew Ting and Hin were after a more stylish approach.

In the beginning, the couple had their doubts as to whether Greece was the right backdrop for what they wanted, but the photographer assured them it was, and they are more than pleased with the results.

A Beijing Love Story

We know the difference between a couple doing a destination wedding in a foreign land, and a couple in a familiar place filled with their stories and memories. There is a kind of connectedness to the place that can be seen in the photos.

Fennie and Halim are from Indonesia, but the couple chose to have their bridal portraits taken in Beijing because that’s where they first met, fell in love and decided to be together forever.

In the beginning, Fennie was annoyed with Halim for being so picky about their bridal portraits photographer. They went through many months of looking at different photographers, but never thought they’d have to settle with one from outside of Indonesia.

When they stumbled upon Metrophoto, however, they instantly fell in love with Oly’s work.

We like how they intentionally didn’t shoot on the Great Wall of China, but explored other locations in Beijing. We also like the extra touch of traditional Chinese theatrical makeup, which apparently was Fennie’s idea. It is beautiful.

Wonders Of Nature

Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has been included among the new 7 Wonders of Nature. The limestone in this bay has been shaped through 500 million years under different conditions and environments. This is the kind of natural beauty we have in Asia that is often ignored.

This cheeky couple also made their way to the city of Hanoi. A red dress always has a way of making the bride stand out in the utterly busy streets. From the photos, we are sure the team had lots of laughs shooting this.

Back In Time

Photography by Kres Bridal Image Connoisseur. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We like the styling and mood of this set of photos. The location and checked tiles definitely play an important role in creating the right backdrop as well. Kres have recently expanded their services to include more than just makeup, and we thought this shoot was a good example of what they can deliver. They have also done quite a number of editorial photoshoots.

Photoshoot In Borneo

This couple flew all the way to Borneo from Singapore to do their bridal portraits. They really went all out and roughed it out – took long drives, climbed rocks and stood against the wind. There was just so much to explore in Borneo.

ZA Gallery: “The dairy farm in Kundasang was our first stop for the shoot. It was very windy that day, and it took them a lot of effort to climb that rock. As for us, our cameras were even shaking due to the strong winds.

“On the second day, we departed early so that we could reach Kudat early for the shoot. Google Map showed that it would take about one and a half hours to drive there. We expected it would be longer – two hours maybe. But it took us about four hours to reach there as the road was not in good condition!

“Nevertheless, we enjoyed shooting there. There weren’t many visitors when we were there, so we had the whole place to ourselves! Angie’s cheongsam suited the environment of the longhouse perfectly.

“After that, we made our way to the tip of Borneo. Thereafter, we had to make the long drive back to Kundasang.”

One Photoshoot, Two Cities

This is as good as it gets – bridal portraits that were taken not only in Korea but Japan too. Whether it’s the gentle people, the beautiful scenery, the cold weather, or maybe even the Korean serials, we can’t help but feel that love is in the air in both Korea and Japan. Being in two of Asia’s most fashion-forward cities, this couple definitely went all out with their wardrobe as well. Honestly, we would have thought they were locals.

Bonjour, Paris

There are so many beautiful places for a photoshoot in Paris, with its amazing architecture and Parisian cafés all around. The red dress definitely looked amazing, and of course, the Louvre Pyramid was one of our favourite spaces too.

The Water Palace In Bali

To the southeast of Amiapura are the ruins of a vast royal pleasure garden. Much was destroyed during the volcanic eruption of 1963, but the Taman Ujung Water Palace, which is influenced by a combination of European and Balinese architecture, remains one of the nicer water palaces in Bali. Shiau Ferng’s classic long veil is also a perfect match for this location.

A Great Adventure In Cambodia

Destination bridal portraits at Siem Reap, Cambodia. Photography by Wainwright Weddings. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Julian, of Wainwright Weddings, met Annie and Jason in Siem Reap for their portrait session at the Angkor temple complex – one of the most stunning photography backdrops imaginable. We immediately fell in love with his work. His ability to capture life and people is remarkable; it almost feels like we took these photos from the pages of National Geographic or LIFE magazine. This brings bridal portraits to a whole new level.
