AD­VEN­TURE OF A LIFE­TIME

Shot in ex­otic lo­cales from Ice­land to In­done­sia, these pre-wedding portraits are the stuff

of fan­tasies.

From Ice­land to Yo­gyakarta, Priscilla Wang and Colin Wang’s wedding portraits are the stuff of fan­tasies.

We had two over­seas shoots in Ice­land and Yo­gyakarta, and one in Sin­ga­pore. De­cid­ing to shoot in dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions was due to our love for ad­ven­ture and travel. Both of us are al­ways game for new ex­pe­ri­ences.

We chose Ice­land as we were com­pletely mes­merised by its dra­mat­i­cally con­trast­ing land­scapes. The chal­leng­ing weather – snow and strong winds while hik­ing in our gowns and suits – made the ex­pe­ri­ence truly mean­ing­ful.

Be­fore head­ing over, we skyped with pho­tog­ra­pher Mait Juri­ado a few times to make sure we were com­fort­able with him be­cause he was key in de­cid­ing lo­ca­tions. At times, Mait would sud­denly catch sight of a great spot and we’d quickly jump out of the car to get a few shots.

We en­joyed the spon­tane­ity and adren­a­line rush. Be­ing in Ice­land, we wanted to cover as many lo­ca­tions as pos­si­ble, and our pho­tog­ra­pher gave us just that.

“It’s im­por­tant that you are com­fort­able

with the pho­tog­ra­pher. His port­fo­lio should give you the con­fi­dence you need to trust him.”

“There were so many firsts dur­ing our Ice­land trip. It turned out to be an eye­open­ing ad­ven­ture for us.”

In con­trast, our lo­cal shoot was de­cid­edly ur­ban, ar­chi­tec­tural and the­atri­cal. At­las

Bar’s op­u­lent Art Deco sur­round­ings re­ally im­pressed us and we were con­fi­dent that the place would com­ple­ment the strengths of Joe Teng of Acapella Pho­tography. Colin felt that the am­bi­ence re­ally suited my Galia Lahav gowns. We also took some pic­tures at the iconic Na­tional Gallery and Vic­to­ria Con­cert Hall.

Shoot­ing in Yo­gyakarta, In­done­sia, came up in our dis­cus­sions with Joe. We were re­luc­tant at first. How­ever, a brief les­son on its rich cul­ture, his­tor­i­cal vibe, beau­ti­ful an­cient ru­ins, and tem­ples won us over. It was also the per­fect ex­cuse for an­other pre-wedding ad­ven­ture. The im­ages were amaz­ing!

Do­ing our pho­tos in dif­fer­ent des­ti­na­tions gave us tons of beau­ti­ful and mean­ing­ful me­mories. The ex­pe­ri­ence was def­i­nitely all worth­while.
