Our Engagement Shoot
Finally found the time to sort out our engagement pictures!
The background story is, before this whole wedding madness, the boy and I hardly take pictures together - I think we only have a grand total of like, 5 pictures from all our years of dating lol. Which is why we didn’t do a wedding video montage of our baby - dating - etc pictures like almost every Singaporean couple out there. If we were to do it, the entire presentation will be pictures of food wtf.
So when it came to our wedding, we actually wanted to do away with the whole pre-wedding photos thing because we thought we’d be terribly awkward in front of the camera given our lack of “camwhore-ness” and we totally cringed at the thought of doing all that lovey-dovey you and me with balloons at the beach, looking into the sunset typical bridal studio shots.
But everyone kept asking us about our pictures (I think especially ‘cause photoshoots are common in my line of work), and we eventually caved in and went ahead with a photoshoot 3 weeks before the wedding. Much thanks to the partners - Zach, Keira & Kaitlyn - who went all the way out for us. I suppose it’s because we’ve worked on countless photoshoots for ClubCouture that I more or less know their working styles. But a fashion photoshoot is still very different from an engagement shoot and the idea of being in front of the camera for once is actually pretty nerve-wrecking. But surprisingly, everything turned out to be pretty good, and unexpectedly fun and I think I wouldn’t mind doing it again HAHA.
And because of the lack of pics from our dating days, we decided we didn’t want the posey posey kinda engagement shoot which imho is kinda passe anyway. And I think we’d better take some pictures of us now when we are still young, before we get all old and wrinkly :/
So basically Zach followed us around for half a day & this series of pictures more or less captures our relationship (which hasn’t changed at all since the wedding) - food, fun, laughter and the nonsense the boy does that actually secretly makes me happy.
Behind the scenes: He really actually fell asleep while I was doing my makeup zzz.
Typically us every time before we head out. Me on my phone and him being impatient lol.
I have come to the conclusion that the boy naturally looks naughty.
We tried posing with the grass…
AND THIS IS HIS VERSION. He even asked us “eh the photo can see the grass INSIDE my ear not?” FML - Sometimes I can’t believe I married this man.
That’s all for now! Will upload the rest of the pictures once I get round to sorting ‘em out.
