    We were constantly awe-inspired by all the sweet locations just around the city in Bali , we didn't even have to drive that far to get to them! And of course the food was pretty amazing too (and highly rewarding if we may say so, after a full day of shooting), as we completely pigged out on some amazing Indonesian-style barbecue ribs and mee goreng at @naughtynurisseminyak with @bunnydrop and @areyouseriousjoel! First off we were stunned by the beautiful greenery and drone ✈️ shots we were able to take at the ridge walk (there were oh so many people walking through though - and a lot of them with their dogs , so that was cute!) It was a bit of a hike but well worth it and easily one of the most gorgeous hillside vistas we have ever seen with its long and windy path that reminded of a #greatwall kind of feel! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But what really took the prize had to be the famous/infamous #baliswing - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (Beginning of commentary) although it looked really amazing in the photos, you just wouldn't believe the amount of people there paying $30 to line up to take pictures on the swing! Pretty much nobody was there to actually use the swing, but hundreds of girls (instagrammers) were dressed to the 9s in long flowy dresses with their instagram husbands in tow just to take pictures of them! So it was pretty wow to see our first shooting spot ever that was manmade specifically for instagramming (of course we were there to take pictures too, so that's kind of a self-lol haha). Note: if any of you end up going there make sure you set aside at lest 2 hours to make time for all the lining up you'll be doing! (End of commentary) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Commentary aside it was a blast shooting in Bali and just really good times that we won't ever forget with these two! Just the best memories of traveling around and enjoying this foreign land together!

    Bali. So amazing in so many ways, and what an adventure it was to see all these magical ✨ locations that we had never even imagined we would find there! And what a joy it was to adventure around these places with none other than @bunnydrop and @areyouseriousjoel! We had arrived at the lake the previous night after a longggg drive up the hills and couldn't believe how cold it was (back in the city it was really hot!)... we were absolutely freezing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After checking into our Airbnb we were up at 4am for Annabel's hair and makeup (one of the great things about having @jadeyaumakeup there for all of our prewedding shoots which makes everything so convenient!) and off super early to head out for sunrise! And the craziest thing happened, our driver actually went the wrong way around the hill which led to this frantic race to the lake and onto our boats just in time to catch this absolutely amazing, once-in-a-lifetime epic sunrise! (And lest we forget, let's give Joel some serious props for rowing his boat constantly into position for us to get the best angles haha - Joel you're amazing!) But what was truly epic about this spot was the mist condensing off the surface of the lake as the sun warmed our surroundings...words can't describe just how amazing it was! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And...so everything fell into place in the end! And when we were all done and feeling all good inside we headed back, gathered our stuff and it was off to the next location! But not before a super yummy breakfast of banana pancakes and fruits at our beautiful lakeside resort where the cutest resident doggie followed us around and shared some of our brekky with us... . . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #passionpassport #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot #buzzfeedweddings #weddingstylist #gettingmarried #bridalideas #bridalcouture #bridegoals #baliphotographer #yestothedress #dirtybootsandmessyhair #baliprewedding #destinationwedding

    It had been 3 years since we last been to this island and we had always wanted to go back to shoot a prewedding but it isn't easy finding a couple adventurous enough to want to make the hike up the island, journey for hours in a small boat and fly propeller planes to make their way there! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And so it was really a dream come true when our wonderful couple @bunnydrop and @areyouseriousjoel said hey let's do it! So, so much planning went into this to make this series of pictures come to life, which we had wanted to be the centerpiece of their prewedding shoot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we finally finished hiking up the island for a good half hour (it was really, really hot and it was all uphill) with all our gear in tow and were pretty exhausted (to say the least!) it was only the start because the shoot hadn't yet begun! But Annabel and Joel sprang into action and truly made the pictures of a lifetime. We can still remember climbing on top of the boulder to get the vantage point we needed and seeing the scene unfold before our eyes. What we had envisioned for years was finally happening! With a beautiful sunset ever so softly embracing the island in its golden light, we couldn't help but admire one of the most epic scenes we had ever seen, a reflection of the love and chemistry between these two and their adventurous personalities (they went scuba diving the at sunrise the next day ). Even the most adorable deer came by to say hi to us as you'll see in the pics! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We had the adventure of a lifetime during our 3 days spent with them and can't wait to share more! Truly grateful to Annabel and Joel for being there with us and having us for their shoot. We'll never forget our times spent with them and how much fun it was going through their pictures together a few days ago when they dropped by our place! All ❤️ love, smiles, good laughs, and fantastic times! . . . . #preweddingbali #prewedding #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #sgphotographer

    Headed down to the poolside overlooking the harbor at sunrise to start some editing and what would you know but our little furry friend Bell (we called him that because he had a bell on his collar and you could hear him wherever he walked around the resort!) decided to accompany us! After finishing 3 days of shooting in Bali, we were completely elated that we were able to have such a grand adventure with @bunnydrop and @areyouseriousjoel, but also a tinge of sadness that yes, the shoot was over! Such a completely memorable experience that we’ll never forget. There’s just something about traveling together and going to all these new locations to create some awesome images for our couples that they will always remember, and when they look at them, think of all the stories behind them. 
There’s so much planning and logistics involved for every prewedding shoot, and this one was no different. From coordinating outfits, to choosing locations together, to managing the timing to catch the best light, to waking up at 4am to start makeup and hair sessions, there was 1000% teamwork the whole way through and is needed for every shoot. You also need a little luck to get beautiful sunrises and sunsets (which fortunately we had!) and work through any logistical issues and have patience in the busiest locations (yeah Bali is crowded everywhere!). You have to keep your spirits high and work through everything together as a team, and make the best out of every situation the shoot throws at you! And all that isn’t possible without great people to work with (which we had in the bucketloads!). But now, the work has only really just begun and it’s time to bring all these photos to life and into what we had originally envisioned… Bel and Joel, can’t wait to meet up with you guys soon to go through all your photos! . . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #weddinginspiration #baliprewedding #baliphotographer #baliwedding #baliweddings

    And...YAYYY we did it! Our 11th WPPI award, and it's so humbling considering the level of photography out there within the #WPPI! So many thanks to the amazing people there for putting together such a great competition every year - it's a lot of hard work and we're proud to be part of WPPI! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And...of course, HUGE THANKS to our Atlanta / Oklahoma peeps @havenlane and @captain_cc for trusting us to capture their elopement out here in sunny Singapore! We know you guys were already happy with your photos (we definitely appreciated all your kind words) but how about this one to take things to another level! (Especially Clayton being a serious photographer himself, we definitely felt the pressure to put out something that would make their moment that much more memorable haha!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, yeah, we'll never forget that moment when Clayton saw Haven in a wedding dress for the first time. Just one of those moments when the love just takes your breath away. This shot was taken right after that and we were totally feeling the awesome vibes from all that had just happened before us. Totally brings back all the good memories and makes us feel all sentimental!!! ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And now, if we can just indulge our photographer side for just a moment, yayyyy we are totally also happy that our drone shot came out! We've been practicing so hard with our #djimavicpro since the day we got it because everyone just loves drone shots, and it really brings another level of complexity to any prewedding / wedding shoot, because the lighting, posing and compositions are all different from what you're used to seeing like 99.9% of the time (unless you're like, a bird or something haha). So this really makes us feel like all that hard work has been worth it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Finally, we'd like to thank all the couples that have trusted us over the past 7 years to shoot their weddings. We always try to do our best for each and every one of you and always keep in mind that we wouldn't be here if it it wasn't for you! . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot
