Merlvyn and Joy get engaged

January 24, 2014

First of all, you’ll notice that I’ve given my blog template some little tweaks. I’ve had this template for more than 6 months (and I’m the sort of person that gets bored with things almost instantly), so I’ve recently been eyeing a few cleaner and more minimalistic templates to change into. The unfortunate thing is, the best template that I’ve seen so far costs a whole lot of money… so I am left with no choice but to just change my current one a little bit to better suit my tastes. Anyway, how are you finding it? Leave a comment below this post!

Photographing a surprise engagement is exactly my kind of thing: lots of crying, smiling, laughing and emotions that make great photos and great memories for a lifetime. Merlvyn and Joy got engaged on New Year’s Eve of 2013 which in Merlvyn’s words, made counting the number of days that they had been engaged super easy.  We were seated right across from their table and tasked with sneakily taking photos of them during the meal. Sorry to say my sneaky skills aren’t that good and I was so afraid that Joy was going to smell something fishy going on!

Here are some of my favourite shots from the night. Photos were taken with a mixture of 100mm f/2.8L Macro USM and 50mm f/1.8 II. See whether you can differentiate which photos are taken by me and which by the boo (the lighting is pretty obvious haha!)



Congratulations again Merlvyn and Joy, already looking forward to your wedding! :)
