Wedding photographer for a day!

I had the wonderful opportunity to be A&Y 's wedding photographer. Well, i was more of the bride's photographer. This lovely couple are good friends whom i used to work with. R was there to help me take some pics & videos too. I managed to witness the entire process of how a Malay wedding goes. I have attended a few Malay weddings w R, but it's nothing like what i got to experience at A&Y's wedding! Def an eye opener. 

It was touching to see them both in their best outfits all dolled up & stuff. What touched me most was when Y had just arrived & his bride was awaiting for him at the end of the line, where the bride's uncle & brothers were an obstacle Y had to overcome before getting to see his bride. Something like Chinese weddings but held in a different manner. So this part nearly had me all teary eyed. It was sucha heart warming scene! Hahaha ima emotional wreck i know, i know. I get touched quite easily.

I am currently working on their wedding video. It will be up soon. Perhaps i will include it at the end of this post if i finish it by tonight! *Fingers crossed* Dateline to hand over the photos & video is in a weeks time. I gotta rush to get it done. 

All in all, i would def do this wedding photographer thing again! It was pure fun & i did it out of love for photography! Be it for Chinese, Malay, Eurasian or Indian weddings.. I wld love to be your wedding photographer & videographer! Because i am new at this, my rates aren't rocket high like those well known companies. My photos are raw, candid, & full of emotion. I do not like posey photos. Of course i will add in some of those lest the photos come out too candid which is what most couples do not like. Also, i would love to do a pre wedding shoot for couples! Tt's my specialty! Hehe. Sadly, the couple for this wedding i took did not want a pre wedding shoot. If not i cld show u guys some photos of what it wld look like. I rmbr holding my own outdoor shoots w my girlfriends(using them as my models in which they willingly agreed). I took some pretty awesome pics okay! I swear by it! Haha. Anw, to cut the story short...

If you are looking to hire an affordable photographer for any kind of shoots (except nude/obscene ones, duh), feel free to drop me an email at nadine_tay@live.com.sg for rates & enquiries! (:

Wishing the lovely couple everlasting love & good health! (:

With love,

Colourblocks and hues of pink.

I have a thing for layering my necklaces. Always loved doing that to give my outfit a more edgy look. Clourblock upon clourblock goes pretty well, no? Initially i thought it would look weird. But once i wore it i was like, "Okay it dosen't look tt bad." I quite liked it actually.

Threw over my floral chiffon outerwear from New Look, under the kids section & wala! I had a girly outfit that said "Sweet" all over! That's why i love to mix & match my clothes instead of just wearing one kind of clothing. Mix & match gives u several different kinds of outfits suitable for the specific occasion/event one is attending.

Three Blind Mice Flea.

I attended the TBM flea last Sunday as a tenant. & It is my 2nd time having a booth with them. Of all the flea organizers i have worked with, i gotta admit that the 3 guys behind TBM have def won me over in terms of their quality service, & how are so detailed in their work to the extend of ensuring that every booth has enough space & not squeezed together is just ahmazing! 

So yes, i wld highly recommend TBM if any of you are interested in selling your preloved or brand new items! (: Anw, i didn't earn much profit for my 2nd flea w them. The crowd wasnt as great as the first. & Yes, i know its cause its also a Sunday so lesser ppl will be present. I wish i cld be there on Sat rather than on a Sunday. But i work in the F&B industry, i cant get weekends off. Except Sunday cause the restaurant is closed. 

 I woke up late & R was waiting outside my house! I was super panicky & rushing like mad! I put my make up on in 5mins! Hahaha i was really in a panic mode!

 Set up my booth upon arriving & thank God i woke up late & ended up not arriving so early cause so many other tenants were much later than i was? In fact, i was kinda on time & still had some time to spare before the doors opened.

 R was the sweetest. He not only woke up early to drive me to the flea location, he even drove to a nearby Macs to get breakfast for me & we ate tgth. I was happy. I love Macs breakfast!

 Then after 2 hours i got sad. Cause i didn't get much sales & i spend so much time trying to decor my booth to make it more welcoming. R was a sweetpea. He bought me my fav Espresso & caramel biscuit ice cream from Salted caramel who happened to have a booth there too!

 Thankful for my friends who dropped by to accompany me (:

My turquoise embroidered dress is from RunwayBandits! I have several RWB items i love their site so much! My fav online site of all! (:

Just you and i.

My lace skirt is from younghungryfree.com

If you have been following me on my blog & reading my entreis over the years, u'd know how much i love photography. When i joined the F&B industry, the time i used to have going random places & creating my own photoshoot, using my friends as my models etc. kinda faded. Then i met R, he disliked taking photos. He never liked being infront or behind the camera. Which was a big problem for me because i loveee being in both! We had our arguments over the years but i am so happy that he is slowly giving in to my deep interest in taking photos. This set of photos taken were by us. Just R & i, & our trusty camera stand. He was the one who suggested we spend our Sunday tgth taking photos. On top of that, he even suggested we coordinate our outfits! Which is why we are wearing B&W. Man i thought i heard wrongly when those words came spilling out of his mouth! Tt day, i went home extremely contented. I finally got to do what i have always loved doing. & What makes it even better is when your partner joins in with you (:

That's what love is about right? Compromising to each other's interest & stuff :)

I realized i havent uploaded a video i promised months back on my Canon 70D. Tbh, i alr edited the video months back but had no confidence to upload it as i was afraid ppl wld say it's not a good enough  a video as i watched some other You Tubers who did a review on the cammy & obv they did a way better job than i did! I did a super brief one. So, i'm just gonna upload it here for u guys to watch if u are interested in knowing more about the Canon 70D.

Watch to find out how i take most of my photos using my Samsung phone (S4) as a camera remote to start the self timer & i can even change the ISO, shutter speed & aperture on my phone using an app. Watch to find out what app! (:
