Mira and Kury’s Outdoor Engagement Session

by | Bride, Engagements


Mira and Kury

Today’s engagement session has a bit of funk to it and a bit of urban style amongst the Malaysian landscape today!

Photos today are by Afnan Omar who has captured this session really differently in a visually stunning way.

Afnan tells the story of how Mira and Kury met “They have known each other since 2006 but they were not close friends. Then they went separate ways and they had lost touch with each other since then. Mira went to New Zealand to further her studies for two years and Kury stayed in Kuala Lumpur working as a Graphic Designer and as fate would have it, they found each other again on Facebook in 2009. So thanks to Mark Zuckerberg then!

After that Kury asked Mira out for a dinner one day and since then they have been together.”

Alis and Adrian’s Post Wedding Shoot

by | Bride, Wedding Inspiration


Alis and Adrian

This morning’s photos are something as little different. After their wedding day, Alis and Adrian enlisted their Brisbane based wedding photographer Mary-Jane to take some post wedding photos near the house they rented for their honeymoon. The house, Tteckeba, is located in Melbourne’s Dandenong Ranges amongst the forests around Olinda and along with the Alfred Nicholas Gardens set the scene for some romantic photographs.

While the sun is shining as brightly as it has been, I find myself dreaming of balmy summer evenings filled with cocktails, rice paper lanterns, fresh, delicious food and acoustic tunes wafting across the cool breeze.

Today’s board plays on a myriad of pinks, oranges and corals – perfect for a sunny celebration.
