Finally! It was Winon and Yi Wen’ actual wedding day on 29th October 2011.. and I am honoured to be their photographer since the day Winon propose, ROM, Prewedding and until their Actual Wedding Day… Let me tell you the whole story. please bear with me with lots of images and writing with broken english ya….. lol.. hmm let me see, I have to start from year 2009…..
One day, I receive a call from Winon asking to meet up for prewedding discussion. So, I set up the appointment after my 1st ever experience sharing on Canon 5D mark 2 at Mid Valley invited by Zung. I still remember we were sitting at La Vanilla restaurant and in the mid of discussion, Zung came over and told them, “ohh you are Edwin’s client? yes, pls engage him! ” hahaha.. and that time, Winon told me… “hey, we are looking for a photographer who can capture our wedding start from ROM , Prewedding and until Actual Wedding Day”….. I was like.. hmm okok, we shall see…..so, days later, they confirm my service on ROM and would wanna see how it goes before engaging me for their prewedding and actual wedding day photographer…. and days before their ROM, I received call that Winon would like to do a surprise proposal at Bijou.
yes, while Winon and Yiwen enjoying their dinner in the restaurant, videographer, decorators and myself already waited outside for almost 2 hours.. hahaha ok la, i think it is only like an hour .. but but but.. it was dark and cold outside with all those mosquito ! , well, it was my first experience on shooting proposal. It was kinda challenging for me that time given everything happen so fast after they return to the restaurant. We have less than 15mins to get the place ready … Click here for the posting on the proposal

It is not easy for someone to make the decision and assign a person to be as their as photographer to capture the moment from the day one Proposal , ROM, Prewedding and until Actual Wedding Day. I would like to express my appreciation on entrusting me as your photographer and treasure our friendship a lot. Beside, I do appreciate your ” thank you speech” during the wedding dinner itself when you address me as your friend instead of photographer….it is one of the happiest moments for me… really…..
