Dreamy and Passionate Bridal Portraits at the Sand Dunes in Malacca
Sometimes bridal portraits can appear to be more than just a snapshot of two newlyweds-to-be; they can look as dreamy and professional as an editorial shoot. For these newlyweds, it didn’t matter what the backdrop was – from the sand dunes of Pantai Klebang, Malacca, to the roads of KL and in a cosy coffee shop, it was clear all they had were eyes for each other, and that’s what truly mattered. Many thanks to Jasmine. A Photography for capturing these stolen moments – it’s amazing to freeze a moment of intimacy that perfectly encapsulates this couple’s engagement.

Roselyn is a fashion buyer, and being from the creative industry herself meant that we fell onto the same page very quickly! Everything, from locations and wardrobe to the overall thematic experience, was discussed. I enjoy being involved in the planning process and whenever a couple asks for opinions on timelines, what to wear or even what shoes to get, we’ll always try to help!
“I love the fact that these sand dunes in Malacca feel like an empty canvas. It is completely up to you what you do with the space, and it all comes down to perspective. In this case, it was all about the fun, the tender moments and the emotions. There’s just something about two lovers alone in a space like this, wind in her hair, sand in his feet, and her beautiful dress flowing with the wind. All of us agreed that we wanted to keep it simple and romantic. The concept was meant to be just ‘lovers on an adventure’. Things took a turn in a way I did not expect when the sun began to set. I’ve been to this space a number of times but I’ve never seen a sunset so beautiful! My favourite time of the day to shoot is the blue hour, just after sunset, and on that day, the blue hour magic was real!
“I loved the idea of injecting a little bit of culture into our time together. I’ve always thought that the heritage architecture around Merdeka Square is stunning, and it was the perfect backdrop. Also, with a ‘lehenga’ like that and your significant other by your side, you just can’t help but to want to dance! Finally, for the cosy café session, I truly believe that it’s the little things that count. I look at sessions like these as an opportunity for couples to just enjoy each other, which was just what they were looking forward to. A rainy Sunday afternoon, a cosy cafe, some good coffee, deeper conversations, laughs and stolen kisses. I couldn’t be happier documenting something so simple and beautiful.”
