Tying the Knot for Stephanie and Sam

This is one of the most memorable weddings I’ve ever captured. Sam and Stephanie’s wedding was filled with such wondrous beauty and joy, and it is for this very reason I find myself watching their wedding video again and again. Before you make a nosedive for the photos, do take some time to check out the amazing video by Multifolds’ resident principal videographer, Rainer!

The duo are avid cat lovers, and have Whiskey and Tutu as a part of their family.

Candy Crush remains one of their favourite pastimes.

This was a pretty intimate and relaxed wedding.

Peek a boo!

The wedding at Telok Blangah Hill.

The quote on this packet of tissue caught my eye, and remains forever etched in my memory.

Stephanie was extremely radiant that evening.

Lovescapade of Ee Sin and QQ in Japan

Japan never ceases to amaze me. It was fall when both Candy T, the couple’s chirpy make-up artist, and I arrived in Japan with QQ and Ee Sin. I had already pictured the beauty of the Japanese autumn in the couple’s #lovescapade when it started to snow. Yes! It was the first time I felt the cold kisses of snowflakes as they gently pelted my cheeks.

The Land of the Rising Sun is not only renowned for its postcard friendly landscapes, it also boosts an array of tantalising treats for both the foodie and shopaholic. The Japanese have also seamlessly merged world-class technology into their everyday lives, turning everything that would have been foreign into something user-friendly.

As Japan started to welcome winter, its breathtaking scenery too got even more amazing. I was drawn to the majestic ice cap of Mount Fuji that stood in full glory in the distance, the serene lakes of Kawaguchiko, and the vibrance of bustling Shinjuku and Shibuya. Japan never stops offering me so much to capture.

As clichéd as this may sound, a picture does speak a thousand words. Here are my favourite shots from QQ and Ee Sin’s #lovescapade in Japan, made even more beautiful with the wonder that is Japan.

QQ was really pleasantly surprised when it started to snow.

The calm and magnificent views were made even more magical with the addition of snow.

Lovescapade of Isaac and Linda (Acro-Yoga Edition)

Linda and Isaac approached with a concept for their shoot. It is unusual for couples to already have a concept in mind, as they would usually bounce a few ideas with us before finalising both the locations and concepts for their pre-wedding. Linda and Isaac, however, were extremely certain with the concept and location they had in mind: yoga in a studio.

I immediately jumped on the opportunity to help them further this concept. How often would a photographer be presented the chance to incorporate both yoga and a pre-wedding? I took the opportunity and stepped out of my comfort zone to take up this challenge.

How about this challenging pose for a start? We included both casual and formal get-ups for this yoga pre-wedding.

Cheese and smile everyone!

We took a while to get this shot right. It was challenging to get Linda stable on air with just Isaac’s support.

Some behind the scenes work

Look at the dedication and effort the power couple put in.

The list of yoga poses. It must be really tiring to attempt everything within 4 hours!

MelissaXParis

I was looking through old photos when I found this gem of an album.

It was July of last year when Melissa and I travelled around Paris. We were bathed in the warmth of the Parisian summer when we managed to enjoy the celebrations of Bastille Day!

I’ve always enjoyed working with the affable Melissa. I had only just finished a #lovescapade for a client when Melissa told me that she would be in Europe. I decided to extend my stay so that she could meet me in Paris. Well, you can’t call a shoot for one person a lovescapade, so let’s just call this a #selfscapade!

Paris is constantly flooded with golden light during summer, which makes for plenty of opportunities for beautiful portraits. What further fascinated me was that their sunsets were always around eight in the evening, which made for many late and extended golden hours.

p

Till then,

Melvin.

Lovescapade of Gerald and Zhixin

Upon our first meet up, Gerald and Zhixin vividly recalled how they had first met at an Adam Lambert contest. A little while into our conversation, the couple confessed that their love for Disneyland was what brought them a lot closer together. With that in mind, I decided to incorporate a Disney-themed Lovescapade for the pair.

Inspired by The Little Mermaid, I decided to do what had not been done by other photographers in Singapore. I included elements that blended in with the shores that Ariel first set foot on: the set included lots of pearls, sea shells, driftwood, and treasure chests.

Gerald the Price and Zhixin the Mermaid had amazing chemistry and were a wonder to photograph.

May the couple live happily ever after.

With love,

Melvin

Tying the Knot for Gerald and Zhi Xin

It was an honour to have Gerald ring me up to express his interest in the works and services of Multifolds. His fiancée, Zhi Xin, had always been a fan of our works.

When I first met the pair, Gerald and Zhi Xin already had some ambitious ideas for their pre-wedding and solemnisation, of which most of them revolved around one particular theme. Well, I’m pretty sure the theme of their wedding will shine in the photos to come.

Amidst the crowd of close friends and relatives, the couple’s solemnisation and church wedding was nothing shy of simple and fun. I guess this is where I let the photos tell you the rest of the story. Enjoy!

Church Wedding

This was something that Zhi Xin wanted her brides to do. I’m glad it was a dream come true!

 

The Lunch

 

The pair had always wanted a Disney-themed wedding!

The After Party

The Bridal Party Shoot

This is probably my favourite segment of wedding. We could comfortably get goffy with our shots.

The flower toss

This was pretty epic! Adam was so engrossed in the flower toss that he decided to pick Charmaine up when she caught the bouquet!

I’m in love with their spontaneity!

Gosh, I can’t believe I took 2 days to write this post! Maybe it’s time I hired a writer to handle my blog and interview me about the various lovescapades I’ve shot.

Tying the knot for Seraph and Alice

I had gotten to know Seraph when we were both students in Nanyang Polytechnic. I hadn’t had the slightest idea back then that I would become a wedding photographer. 8 years after we graduated, and about 5 years since I started Multifolds, Seraph decided to approach me to shoot his entire wedding. I was extremely honoured and elated to do so.

I’ll show you the lovescapade I did for Seraph and his better half, Alice, in another post!

The Preparations

One of the biggest highlights for a wedding would be the morning where the groom comes to pick up his bride. I didn’t have to get Alice to smile as she exuded happiness the entire morning.

The Groom and Gate Crash Segment

This was one of the more epic gatecrashes I’ve witnessed. I loved the Marvel masks, and also the hilarious stints that the groom and the groomsmen were put through. Despite the many hurdles the men endured, everyone of them seemed to enjoy the gatecrash a lot.

“Choose your ang bao, ladies,” they said.

The pinnacle of the comedic gatecrash had to be when Seraph was blind-folded and led into the “torture room”, where he was given a fake tattoo.

Bridal Party shots

Time should be dedicated for photos for both the bridesmaids and groomsmen every wedding. For all the handwork they have put in, it would be nice to reward them with photographs to relive the moments.

The Solemnisation 

The Emotions

This was perhaps one of the more memorable weddings I’ve covered. My photographs encompassed an entire spectrum of emotions; from laughter to tears, this is what a wedding was meant to be.

Derrick and Li Jia Melbourne Lovescapade

Say “Melbourne” and I will tell you “let’s go”! The amazing people and breathtaking sceneries makes Melbourne my favourite city to visit. Naturally, this was where we ended up when Derrick and Li Jia asked for location recommendations.

It was after Alvin’s and Fenny’s shoot in Melbourne did my love for the place start to grow. Melbourne is a treasure trove of wonders for photographers. I love exploring every nook and cranny within and around Melbourne. The city itself is great for urban photography, and around the urban cityscape lie an array of beautiful landscapes. I’ve seen Melbourne’s many beaches and oceans along the Great Ocean Road, and I yearn to see it again.

Make up by: DLouver Makeup

I highly recommend Brighton Beach even if you aren’t going there for a pre-wedding photoshoot. The wooden huts along the beach adds a lot character to its sandy shores.

We also dived into some casual fun!

The gift Derrick made for Li Jia. Handmade gifts like these make for better props for pre-weddings as they help add some personal touches to the photos.

These were taken along my favourite spot along Great Ocean Road. Look, a lighthouse!

Lovescapade of Chih Chwen and Allison

Every girl deserves a guy who looks at her everyday like its the first time he’s seeing her.

 

Chih Chwen and Allison are probably the two most outspoken clients I have ever had. The pair has never failed to make sure that I’m properly fed. They’ve fed me during shoots, after shoots, and even when we meet to further discuss ideas. The pair is also extremely easy to talk to, and with Allison’s training as a lawyer, anything can become a potential conversational topic.

Chwen and Allison were introduced to me by two of my previous clients, Samuel and Stephanie. The former had gotten to know of Multifolds through the latter’s wedding, and decided to engage me since then. Chwen and Allison wanted their photos to revolve around nature, and to also showcase their new home. They had also chosen to have some photos taken at Capella, the venue for their actual wedding ceremony, prior to their wedding.

The couple had decided to keep their wedding outfits a secret and would only reveal it during their lovescapade. The eager bride suggested this to give her groom a surprise, and surprised he was!

We had to include some food in their lovescapade. The couple, especially Allison, loves eating and couldn’t stop grabbing quick bites during the shoot. Well, I think Chwen and Allison captured the true essence of a lovescapade; I love it when clients just be themselves as it makes for more authentic photographs!

Oh! I forgot to mention that for every lovescapade, we include a “dear future” concept video. This is basically a time capsule that couples can look back on several years into their marriage. Press play and enjoy!

Lovescapade of Samuel and Bernie

I feel so fortunate to call you my best friend, and for us to be each other’s pillar of support. Just like how you are always there for me, I’m always here for you too.

Make up by: Kacey Teh

Samuel and Bernie are a really sweet couple. The pair are really caring, and are appreciative of the little gestures my team does for them. I really would love to attend their wedding and witness the joy of their ceremony, but I unfortunately am booked for another lovescapade.

So what’s the story behind this lovescapade?

Samuel and Bernie met in National Junior College and have been in love for almost a decade. There were times when their relationship was put to the test, like when Bernie had to be in Germany for studies and work. Despite the many challenges, the couple braved the odds and they are finally tying the knot this coming labour day.

Samuel used to collect bottle caps from the bar he worked at. He wrote down little significant moments the couple shared behind every bottle cap, and lined them up from her doorstep up the stairs to where he was on the 12th floor of her flat. When Bernie found Samuel, he surprised her with his guitar and performed a song for her before she flew off to Germany for 5 years.

Until next time! 🙂
