Wedding: Vincent + Darlene

Sacred Heart Cathedral
Putera Ballroom Theatre
Make-up: Gideon H.

Vincent and Darlene first met while working at a Pizza Hut Restaurant in 2002. Fast forward to 14 August 2010, they finally made their relationship a permanent in their lives together. Exactly eight years after their fateful meeting, they got married. And what a wedding it was! I love the close bond between the family members. Everyone was around to lend a helping hand in making the day as special as it can be. Although, Darlene did mentioned that she was feeling very nervous on that day, to me she was a picture of calmness and happiness. Vincent was handsome and though he stumbled a bit on his vows, he did manage to complete it perfectly afterwards. LOL.. even the priest was smiling throughout the proceedings. The reception was a total blast. Everyones was rocking on the dance floor. In fact, it was the largest group of Poco-poco dancers I've ever photographed. Yeah, they brought the house down that night. Pure enjoyment.

Below are some selections of our favourite moments of the day.









































To Vincent + Darlene, thanks very much for letting me join in the celebration and witnessing the commitment to love one another. My heartiest congratulations to the both of you and may you always find happiness and love in each other.

Okay, this is one of my most exciting shoots so far. The reason for this toe-curling excitement is due to two reasons. One, this client couple of mine flew all the way from KL to KK over a July weekend only for this shoot. Two, they want the whole photo series in black and white! Monotone! No words can express how much I love this client of mine. Sigh... 

Ivan & Diana was up for anything. Get them to stand in front of a tamu crowd in Kinarut, get lovey-dovey in a coffeeshop, stand-still even when a cute puppy threatens to ruin a pose... ANYTHING. They are the best. And this made for some really kick-ass photos. Very purrrrdy. Below are some selections of my favourites.

See that logo beside the WhiteRoom signage? That is Ivan and Diana's personalised logo. And no, it was not there when we took this shot. I had to insert the logo during post-processing. And believe me when I say, that is about the most photoshopping I've ever done in my life. My wrist is still straining from trying to manipulate the mouse to place the logo. Glad it turned out ok though. SMILES.


Ok, so I couldn't resist having some colour photos in the mix cause some of the images are just screaming for some colour. How can I resist?

The ring shot for the closing is quite appropriate I reckon. As for Ivan and Diana, hope you guys will have the most wonderful upcoming wedding. Just wish that I could be there to witness the joy and happiness. All the same, I wish the both of you all the joys and happiness in your marriage to each other and my heartiest congratulations to the both of you.

As for you folks, hope you enjoyed the photos and stay tuned for more upcoming wedding photos coming soon. Till then, stay beautiful everyone...
