Love is not only something you feel, it is something you do.
A beautiful kiss by the groom's house. With just a 10 min allowance for any outdoor shots, I think we got the shot.
A memory they can print as a wall art in their home!
I’m surprised to find myself writing this but it’s exactly a year since my first Instagram post. Thanks to everyone who has liked, commented, followed, featured and otherwise encouraged me during that time! It’s been a hugely positive experience and I hope you’ll agree that it’s driven a real improvement in my photography over the 12 months. 🙏🏻 How about a quick Stat Attack to recap the year gone by?

Nine Emperor Gods Festival 2018
Little India shimers after being lit up for Deepavali celebrations.
2018 marks the 30th year of light up
Auspicious functions and moments like daily worship, rituals and festivals and even many social occasions like inaugurations commence with the lighting of the lamp.
Called deepak in Sanskrit, meaning lamp, a lighted oil lamp is considered a sign of auspiciousness and goodness.
Light is considered as a symbol of auspiciousness, prosperity and abundance in the Indian tradition.
Light is also associated with brightness of mind and understanding.
A large work of art, that replicates an oil lamp beautifully lit up as part of the decorations.
More to come.

Nine Emperor Gods Festival 2018
Dreaming of this chunky, lip-smackingly delicious satay we had before we left Kuching.
Couldn't help stuffing my face with this even though I polished off a bowl of Sarawak Laksa and a bowl of Kuay Chap less than 3 hours prior to this.
Can't wait to go back for more! 😋
You know something wonderful begins to happen with the simple realisation that life, like a car, is driven from the inside out, not the other way around. As you focus more on becoming more peaceful with where you are, rather than focusing on where you would rather be, you begin to find peace right now, in the present. Then, as you move around, try new things, and meet new people, you carry that sense of inner peace with you. It’s absolutely true that, ‘Wherever you go, there you are.’
