This is the first time for me shooting an engagement party in Palembang. I'm always excited to go to a new place or city for a shoot, but this time, we as a team got a real treat. I got really really excited the day when we had our pictorial shoot in a little forest in the middle of the city. We were treated with a really good looking couple surrounded by the fresh green woods, a warm breeze of Palembang and beautiful rays of the sun that shines through the leaves, everything was beyond words, especially Valentine who is breathtakingly stunning in her red dress as they rode through the forest in their nice old Vespa. Most importantly, I get to witness two lovebirds who couldn't take their eyes off each other unveiling their love story through their incredible chemistry towards each other. Shooting this couple reminds me why I LOVE my job!
After the shoot we went straight to the hotel for rehearsal. I'm surprised by how relaxed everyone is, how camera friendly everyone is and how beautiful the whole atmosphere of the engagement is. Not to forget to mention how cool the decoration is and how friendly and helpful the Wedding Planner is (Henry and Heniy from H20).
There were countless beautiful moments that we were able to capture that day, but to me and my team, the most beautiful moment was when they were watching the Same Day Edit that we played during the reception. Watching the two lovebirds' expressions is a feeling beyond words for us. Thankfully, we have their expressions as they were watching the clip captured so we can share it with you guys!
Henry and Valentine, congratulations for the upcoming wedding! I can't wait to see you guys your love for eternity. Many luv from us!
