This is a milestone in my photographing experience!! The wedding of Benson and Kellie in Brisbane, Australia marks the first wedding I've ever shot outside of Malaysia. And what a wedding it was. The whole experience was so new to me and though I've read about weddings in the Western countries all the time from all my favourite wedding photographer blogs, it just doesn't beat the real thing. To say I was excited about shooting this wedding is a total understatement. I was completely exhilarated and happy-nervous at the same time. Benson and Kellie planned to have a garden wedding by the lake which would have totally rocked. Unfortunately, it was just raining non-stop in Brisbane so they had to use Plan B which was to have the ceremony done indoors. Still, it was a beautiful wedding and the although the weather was rather gloomy, it didn't dampen the spirit nor festivities of the occasion even one bit. My favourite part of the reception will be when they started the entertainment for the night. Benson being a musical performer (singer) had all his equally talented friends perform and they just rocked the house. I mean it was like a concert! I've never shot so furiously at a wedding before and by the end of the night I was just drained... but would be happy to do it all over again if there is ever another opportunity.
Benson and Kellie made for a really beautiful couple and I really thank you both for all your graciousness and hospitality while my being in your care. A special shout-out to Benson's sister, Sharon for being my wingman and Uncle Tony for taking care of me throughout my stay in Brisbane. There are so many photos that I love from this wedding but I've shortlisted them to my most favourite 'favourite photos'. Hope you'll enjoy them as much as I do.
I hope you enjoyed those photos. There are just too many to choose from and I love just about all of them. Come back soon for more photos of beautiful people getting married. See ya!!
