It was a fun shoot with Candy and Chris. Candy loves greenery and what better place to be than in Singapore with our recently minted Unesco World Heritage Site, one of only 3 tropical gardens globally.
We were there at around 5 pm and being in a tropical region means the weather can be unpredictable. It helps that I was here earlier and sited a route that takes about 30 mins. For the most part, the shoot went smoothly and the comment I get is, how come I shoot so fast? This was in comparison to 2 other wedding couples that was being shot in the area. They were in the same area like for 15 mins. I always find that question interesting to answer simply because it's a matter of style.
I love candids and always love to have my couples feel comfortable. The word I would go for is "Feel". And this was somewhat tougher with film cameras but with digital it's much easier (and cheaper!) since an additional digital exposure cause next to nothing.
While I would certainly give my couples simple guidance on what to do, sometimes, what I am waiting for is for the scenario to unfold. And that to me is the treasure and always a lovely surprise. Over here the instructions was for Candy to surprise Chris with a kiss. Yet it was the smile after that I love. It's them. Cute and very much in love! This is only possible with sequential shots that digital cameras offer. So fire away!
