Close portrait of smiling couple in Singapore prewedding shoot

      “It was probably the most unlikely and ironic situation for anybody to meet their better halves. But I do believe that things happen for a reason and I guess life works to help you tide through difficult times in special ways.”

       

      These words – from schoolmates who re-connected at their best friend’s funeral – made me certain I wanted to create something special with this couple.

      I had a few days layover in Singapore at the start of the year, and was fortunate to spend time with Erika and Mervyn for a pre-wedding shoot.

      It was very clear to me that there is a deep and sincere love that runs between these two sweet-spirited people, which made capturing heartfelt moments between them very special for me.

      A nod to Mervyn’s Peranakan heritage, with the neighbourhood’s quaint shophouses, tiled floors and Peranakan stores that feel like a remnant from Singapore’s yesteryear.
