A Wedding

As the professional exam nears, there is a sense of panic and fear among the students as they gear up to prepare for it, but not this 2, for them, getting married is the best thing that can happen to them, not to say they are ignorant about the exam, but they know by having each other they will be able to solve any problems.

Attended their wedding and did a shoot for this happy couple. 

I don't usually do weddings, so i was really stumped on how to shoot a wedding, tried researching the web and looked at works of other photographers to get some inspiration.

Nevertheless once they were in front the camera, they need little directions from me as we were friends for quite some time so everything came quite naturally.

There were a snags though, as I was not really feeling that well, I was walking around with a headache, nevertheless, we came out with some really beautiful shots.

I was actually quite excited about the shoot that the night before, I could not sleep as I was worrying about all the mistakes and gear malfunction I might have on the day of the wedding.

Made a couple of mistakes, but hey, photography is all about learning from mistakes ain't it.

Final few shots which i think it's one of the few "it" shots.

Well that's it from me. I would like to wish Umar and Safiah a happy marriage, may their marriage be for eternity :D


  1. Good job on that wedding shoot man. You must have enjoyed it. Who was holding the reflector for you?

    Some of the shots were wow. For that I mean last two, and number 6. Expectations are high in wedding photography. Probably that's why I don't do it. :D

    You gotta watch your background(KLCC and bench) and pay attention to angles. A lot of the angles didn't really flatter the couple. A lot of side angles and quite a bit of shots captured a lot of their back at the foreground of the picture.

    Congrats on your first wedding shoot though. Bring meeee next time!!
