Sneak Preview - My PreWedding Shots

First Stop.
Sekeping Tenggiri.

Raw, unedited pre-wedding photos by Edmund Tham

We stayed at Sekeping Tenggiri for a night, a day before our much-awaited moment - the pre-wedding photography session.
I could barely sleep that night, tossing and turning in bed; my mind was just simply restless.

Or should I say, nervous! And, that's not good at all.

We woke up at 6 the next morning (me with puffy eyes) and I cleansed my face without applying moisturiser after; toner is sufficient at this stage.

Or the cosmetics won't work well on the skin.

One word of advice: Don't make last-minute appointment with your beautician.

My make-up artist (MUA), Chew Yen, arrived around one hour later.

Edmund Tham (a World's Top 9 WPJA Wedding Photographer in 2008) and team arrived a short while after.

After 2 hours of hair-pulling and hair-twisting drama, I was all set and ready for pre-wedding shooting at around 9am, with my make-up on and hairdo all ready.

We started shooting from 9 and ended at 1pm. I wore the heavier wedding gown at Sekeping Tenggiri and also the evening gown before we hit the dusty road.

We left Sekeping Tenggiri and headed to the next location - Rawang.


Second Stop.

Our first stop was at this aged Caltex station somewhere in Rawang which had just recently changed its signboard.

Had it (the signboard) been the old one, the effect would've been way cooler.

Still, the outcome of the shot (plus editing) is phenomenal.

The visit was like travelling back in time, to the 1980s; even the air smelled 'old' and the ground was dusty and sandy.

Before I got down from the car, I applied a generous amount of sunblock on my skin and thought that'd do it.

However, the MUA told me that sunblock usually takes 15-20 minutes to take effect. *Oh, Great!*

I did get sunburned, but not severe in my case. *Thank Goodness.*

We got ourselves a handful of spectators (called fans) at the station too, not bad.


Final Stop.

After a few stops in Kuala Kubu Bharu, this is the second final stop, in Kerling.

Sitting on the soil of this site are mammoth-sized tractor and other machineries which names are not known to me.

I had tough time walking on the soil as the ground was soft and there was mud all over.

I guess wearing a pair of Nike running shoes here would make life a lot easier, but I only brought a pair of Crocs and the rest, heels.

When we reached here, the sun was sinking as evening approaching; the clouds were thick behind us, so the scenery blend in very well with the setting at the site.

Word of advice: Be sure to ask permission before entering any sites or you might get into trouble!

Despite it being a wet season, it didn't rain at all that day!

Good force was with us that day. :)

Thank you so much to Edmund Tham & his team for making our day so wonderful and stress-free!

On the Road Trip

Try to minimise the things you bring along on the day of your photography outing, else you might end up losing one or two items.

Leave your watch at home, you don't have to wear it.

Remember your sunglasses, sunblock cream and a comfy pair of shoes.
