My Story 

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…, 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

Thank for giving us the unforgettable memories and experience…..the fun that we had, the travel… the time we spend.. all these memories will certainly last for a life time for me…

Actual Day

Before the actual wedding day, we still keep in touched, mostly in facebook hahaha and ya.. the BBQ section at your place..the coffee tasting..the surprise birthday party for Agnes and our VIE Gallery opening!

So, here are some of the images on the SDE (Same Day Edit)

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…..

So, shall I continue to be your photographer and friend to witness for your honeymoon, maternity, new born child, birthday celebration and dont forget your new factories opening and annual dinner, my friends? hahahahahah…

Thank you… Winon and YiWen and wish you two a happy ever after !

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 ...
