Dave and Cookhie Pre Wedding Photoshoot Singapore
This was a very special pre wedding photoshoot indeed for Stam and I to cover, as Dave is a very good friend of mine from School, we studied together at Bradfield College in Berkshire. His beautiful bride to be Cookhie is originally from Korea brought up in Stockholm in Sweden, but they met in Singapore where they both work and live. We took the opportunity to extend our trip for a proper catch up, arriving the evening before so we could dine with them in the Robertson Quay area making for a fantastic night full of chatter and fun.
We kicked off the pre wedding photoshoot the very next day, walking around the Central area of China Town, near Club Street, close to the financial district. Not only was the natural landscape of the city and the people providing some amazing backdrops, we had glorious weather too, the perfect combination for some really colourful street shots of the very dashing couple.
I particularly love shooting these natural urban style photoshoots, as you never quite know in advance what you might capture through the lens. On this particular day we were spoilt for choices, one of our favourite street photos is of Dave and Cookhie looking really relaxed, leant against a wall, with three Chinese locals in the foreground – one of whom is lighting a cigarette.
Later on in the afternoon we headed across to Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands area, a huge construction of hotels, casinos and state of the art shopping malls. The area is set within an elevated position with amazing views of the Singapore skyline, setting the scene perfectly for our pre wedding phototshoot Singapore. As dust approached we were able to capture a number of romantic shots, utilising natural shadows and reflections. Another one of my favourite images is the shot of the city lights twinkling in the background, with the bride and groom to be, lit up by one of our Westcott Ice lights.
Dave and Cookhie have organised their destination wedding not too far away from our photographic studio in Phuket Thailand, at the stunning Sri Panwa Resort, Phuket Island, Thailand. We’re really look forward to seeing you soon and celebrating your very special day with you!
