My 1st prewedding trip at Australia

Today mark another unforgetable memory in my photography page. I travel all the way from Malaysia to Australia for prewedding assignment. after 8 hours of flight (if i remember correctly..hahaha) I was stuck in the lugage belt for almost an hour due to Airport technical issue. The couple waited me outside the airport and once I step out, here go our first mission….. not shooting.. but breakfast la!! lol

We had some Chinese Vietnamese food for breakfast, the portion is so huge and you know what, they even put fresh scallopssssss in the mee ooh

After the breakfast, we went to the park for our first prewedding assignment.. you will be surprise, such a simple park can offer so many shooting locations…we spend coming to 3 hours over there…

My favourate leave when I was in Korea during fall few years back

too bad, all dry leaves

too bad, all dry leaves

We then continue and travel to Manly Beach for next location shooting and before I have enough shooting, it is already 4pm… and yes, 4pm is sunset in Sydney…. by the time we reach to the Italian restaurant, it was already 6pm with total darkness out there same as 8pm in Malaysia….

The dinner was wonderful with kind treatment from the couple— italian coffee and ice cream… now I know why my tummy never reduce the size.. photos? sorry folk, too hungry, nvr capture many photos here hahahahah

I also went down to Darling Harbour to met up with another client for a quick chitchatting.. but the weather is just too cold, I only manage to snap one photo and have to head back to the hotel.

Time to Zzzzzz… will get up early and try to get some good shoot in the morning.. most important, hope my ear pain
will go away which I get it during the landing due to the air presssure in the plane… it is so painful and I can hardly hear anything…

by the way, wifi here is expensive, the hotel charge me AUD11 per hour……

About Edwin Tan


Yes, this is a dream to me, I daydream a lot and let me share with you a few of my dreams here. I always dream of creating a website to record every moments of my life and share with my kiddo when their grow up one day and also dream about carrying my cameras and travel around the world, see the world thru my eye,yes, I love travel, it is my ultimate dream to travel around the world, learning thru travel is the best dream I ever have. Dream is an initial point to me. It help me to look at what I really want in my life. As Malaysia Wedding Photographer with international wedding photography membership (WPJA, AGWPJA, WPPI & PPA), I started my photography passion at the end of year 2007. Like most of the beginners, I was purely having fun with my DSLR capturing my family members portraits and events. After attend the talk by one of the master wedding photographer, it change my whole world. I was so touched by the slideshow shown on the projector for the showcase of prewedding and church wedding, the touching moments, the dramatic angles, all these impact was so strong that it hit direct into my heart and awake my passion towards wedding photography. From there onwards, I have focus all my passion on wedding photography and never feel more satisfied when I capture the moments for couple which last for a life time. Whenever I imagine the couple looking back those photos captured by me in ten, fifteen years from now and think, "yeah, that was the moments" "look, how silly you was!" "oh, I cried when I first saw you walks down the aisle i", "yes, I remember what your dad told me that day when he placed your hand in my right hand from his arm after walks down the aisle".. all these keep my heart warm and keep me going on & on for this long path without a single regret or tiredness ...
