It’s always good to witness how a relationship blossom especially, in one way or another, you played a part on it. These two friends of mine had stand against the test of times too many times and they kept on and will continue to disturb me if they have misunderstandings or the likes. Being a big brother of sort is quite tough. LOL!

Anyway, in due time, they will exchange vows in the altar. When and where, I’ll pass that responsibility to them to announce. Hmm, is there a definite date already my friends?

As a simple gift, I subjected them to a photoshoot we labeled as pre-pre-pre-nup! LOL! Of course, I told them not to expect much since this will be my first try on this kind of photography. One more condition, I stressed out to them that I won’t be editing any of the photos. Yes, I know, editing could enhance the final output of the photos but I am too lazy to post-process them and I am fine and contented with the actual results. Whether they like them or not! Haha!

We shot in Sattahip, Thailand, one in Nong Nooch Garden and the other one in Silverlake. Both locations are open spaces so the availability of natural light was never a problem. (I hate using the flash). I never imagined that being a wedding photographer (kind of) was physically demanding and tiring. But overall, I enjoyed the activity.

I guess I took more or less 500 photos. Here are some them, straight from the camera.

To my wonderful friends, Ai and Dash, please remember that this is already my gift to the both of you. I have given you the electronic copies right? LOL! Just choose what you like and you can print them of course! Haha!

I will be waiting for your formal announcement. Best wishes and good luck to both of you!
