If you have not spent enough time here to realise that I enjoy photographing my friends since God knows when, let me take this opportunity to present the fact again with another beautiful couple. Like many of us here, I have met, known, and mingled with a lot of friends from their bachelor days to when they celebrate another new addition into their families. Now, it is time for another friend to cross that path.
I knew Haiz back in the university couple of years ago. A very fun easy-going guy that only a handful of times that I can see him frown. Most of the time, proven by this series of images, he will charm you with his smile. Multiply that with his beautiful wife, Erma, who is also generous with smiles, you would have guessed how this session will turn out to be. That one beatiful Saturday morning, we headed to Taman Botani Putrajaya that is located in Malaysia’s federal administrative center, some 25kms away from the heart of Kuala Lumpur. It was also my first time to conduct a portraiture session here. For this particular entry, I would like to take a slightly different approach by putting some thinking process that was done on that day. Well, it was a new territory hence I really need to think on my feet. Let’s see how it goes :)
I’m a huuuuuuuuuuge fan of abstracts and patterns. Having to see these exotic roots sticking out into the scenery, I made it as our first stop.
Before you proceed further, I need to remind you that this entry is totally bombarded with patterns and one sweet couple. It’s not too late to turn around and hit other entries :D
In this kind of situation, I normally (I honestly think this is a common photographer’s habit) will take a snapshot of a particular spot to initiate some ideas prior to having the couple into the frame. But sometimes, I do get some clients who are more excited than I am, hence, they appear at the right spot before me!
It wouldn’t be called a botanical garden if it was not carpeted with grass, right?
Next stop, the wooden jetty.
We planned to wrap the session once we are done here. Somehow, the stairs that leads us to the carpark looks kinda tempting. You can see that even Haiz can hardly wait to be in front of the camera.
You know what, it is great to have this kind of people, who understands your way of thinking, the things that catches your attention, and the spot that makes a good photograph. Thank you guys for sharing a morning full of love and fun. I know it is not too late to congratulate you two on your wedding. Last but not least, thank you also for reminding me why I love taking photographs. You two ROCK!
