Destination Bridal Portraits

Under A Magical Tree On Lembongan Island

DiktatPhotography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We swore that we wouldn’t feature Lembongan Island again, and then this arrived in our mailbox. How could we resist that tree all lit up with lights, or the open sky with too many stars to count? Kudos to the DiktatPhotography team; this looks really different in a good way, and there is a truly magical feel to it.

DiktatPhotography: “Jolene and Chu Wei, a couple from Malaysia, wanted to have their bridal portraits taken on Lembongan Island, with the theme a night under the stars. We got to Lembongan from Sanur Beach by speedboat, and it took us about half an hour. We planned to stay overnight on the island so we started our photoshoot from sunset onwards. They were really surprised when we lit up the tree with light bulbs; they loved it and appreciated the effort. We had to rent a generator to turn on the lights, but we all loved the final outcome.”

Behold The Magnificent Mt Fuji

The Fuji Five Lakes, which is at the base of Mount Fuji in Yamanashi, is another great place for photoshoots. Just an hour away from Tokyo, it is a stark contrast to that busy city. Calmness and beauty fill this place, with its changing colours that each season brings.

Avior Pictures: “When we got there, there were a lot of clouds and we had poor visibility. They said that the clouds were not likely to part on that morning, but soon, the clouds slowly parted right in front of our eyes. It was a sign that this wedding is blessed because many believe that only those who are blessed can see Mt Fuji on a cloudy day. What a magnificent sight!”

A Great Story In Romantic Kyoto

A stroll through picturesque Gion Shirakawa in early winter, complete with glimpses of geishas on their way to work, is just priceless. We have to admit that we are in love with 37 Frames Photography’s portfolio, and consider it a pleasure to have had an exclusive interview with them for the magazine.

Yohko and Vijay might call America home, but it’s not surprising that they would choose to have their bridal portraits taken in Kyoto, one of Japan’s most beautiful cities. Kyoto is already a city of great treasures, and this couple’s rich cultural heritage – Yohko is Japanese while Vijay is Indian – only enhances the beauty of it all.

Falling In Love In Bali

We love the gentleness captured through the play of lights; Bali always has a way of captivating our hearts. Of course, the perfect landscape and good-looking couple are the icing on top of the cake.

Apel Photography: “Woro is Indonesian and previously lived in Indonesia, while Eu Liang is a Malaysian who previously lived in Singapore. They both moved to Australia, which is where they met. They decided to have their wedding in Bali since both have family and friends from all around the globe. Before their big day, we joined this awesome couple for a fun photoshoot adventure. They have a great appreciation for nature, and wanted to showcase this in their engagement session. We explored some of Bali’s breathtaking cliff tops and beaches for two hours before they ended the day at the best cliff top restaurant in town to celebrate Woro’s birthday.”

Under The Big Blue Sky In Perth

Multifolds Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Both Susana and John work with Singapore Airlines and that is where they got to know each other. Because they travel so much, having their bridal portraits taken overseas wouldn’t have been something unique for them. So instead they had theirs taken at the Perth training ground for pilots, complete with planes. Thanks, Multifolds, for these lovely sunset photos.

Spectacular Mt Bromo

Photography by Ivan of Axioo. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We have to confess we never knew this place existed before Axioo so graciously shared this story with us. One of the best kept secrets of Java, which is just on the eastern side of Indonesia, it surely won’t disappoint. We really love photographers and couples like Melissa and Ricky who choose to explore the beauty of their own country and share it with the rest of the world. It’s amazing how everything was taken at just one place. Really, these are nothing short of great!

Ivan: “I’ve been hearing about Bromo since I was a little kid, but I didn’t expect such overwhelming beauty. It’s beyond words. It’s quite challenging to get there, but the journey is totally worth it.”

Mind-blowing Bridal Portraits At Antelope Canyon, Arizona

The opening scenes of the movie ‘127 Hours’ left us in awe of Antelope Canyon in Arizona, and made us believe it was something for only the most adventurous. We certainly never thought we’d see an Asian photographer going all the way there for a shoot, and the best part is he’s planning to go again next year. Thanks, Keda, for literally going the extra mile and for sharing these photos with us. They are unbelievable! As he revealed: “This is the most unique natural beauty we have ever experienced… It was quite a challenge to shoot there; we walked through a narrow crevice in the earth, walked down a steep metal staircase and there were some very vertical angles. We were moving very slowly looking for the right spots to shoot at. It was definitely an amazing experience!”

New York City In Winter

It is nice to see photos of a real couple in New York, with its magnificent skyline. It must have been freezing cold at Central Park but these photos are worth it! Thanks, 39 East Photography, for this set of photos. The team will be in New York again at the end of this year so we’ll be expecting more beautiful pictures.

Love Locked In Paris

Photography by Gallerie CK. www.theweddingnotebook.com

A must-visit in Paris is the Pont des Arts pedestrian bridge that links the Institut de France and the central square of the Palais du Louvre, where lovers leave a padlock with their names or initials on it and throw away the key as a symbol of their unbreakable love. Of course both sides of the bridge is also full of iconic landmarks that no photographer would miss. Thanks, Paul, for showing us another lovely side of Paris.
