The wedding of Gordon & Jaslynn

Venue : Equatorial Hotel Bangi

Wedding Planners : The Wedding Project

Make up artist : William Yap

Gown Designer : Charis Ching

Wedding Theme : Rainbow

We photographed this beautiful rainbow themed garden wedding quite a while ago. Yes, you read it right! Rainbow themed =) I guess this was as unique as it gets in a wedding. Jaslynn’s wedding gown was custom made with 7 colours of the rainbow. Needless to say,  the groomsmen and bridesmaid were all colour coordinated according to the 7 colours of the rainbow.

Gordon met Jaslynn while they were both studying Multimedia in Sunway University College Interestingly when I asked them about their first impressions of each other, Gordon thought that Jaslynn was the glamor girl who was impossible to talk with. While Jaslynn on the other hand, thought that Gordon was an Indonesian student. Someone once told me that you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. But I guess Gordon got his second chance when he found out that Jaslynn and himself played the same online games!

Curious, I asked Gordon which online games they both played? Interestingly, it was Mapple Story ,O2Jam and some MSN messenger games! hahaha

So I guess the rest is history, and they got together and are happily married now.

 Here are some of the photos we captured during the wedding day…

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review

First of all I would like to thank Olympus Malaysia for loaning me the Olympus OM-D E-M10 camera together with the Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8 and Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f1.8 lenses. I’ve been in the market looking for a mirror less camera system that can possibly be used in my job as a wedding and portrait photographer. There is an interesting twist to this story of my review, so do hope you will enjoy the lengthy post.

Anyway, this review is solely based on my experience shooting with this camera as a professional wedding and portrait photographer. I will not go into the technical details of this camera and lenses as there are lots of other sites offering that, but rather my honest experience shooting with this camera as a tool to accomplish my job.

Before I begin, let me clarify that whatever images posted here are shot in raw and post edited using Adobe Photoshop CS6. In fact all of my images posted here are edited using the same methods I have adopted unless said otherwise. I have no intentions of showing off how the images are like straight out of camera as it defeats the purpose of my review. So like I said, my review is to see if the Olympus mirror less system can be used to deliver the same quality of images to my clients.

So to help me with this review, I have engaged model\blogger\Emcee Careen Tan (www.careentan.com). Do check out her blog and also her online clothes boutique (www.chiqfliq.com).

Just a day before we planned our shoot, this happened :-

Yea I know it is a little embarrassing to crash like that. I blame it on the Malaysian horrible roads. So the outcome was minor injury on the elbow but my hand needed to be in a cast.

So I either had to cancel the shoot or postphoned it to another day. I decided to carry on because I didn’t want to be sitting at home feeling gloomy and take sad selfies with the Olympus OM-D E-M10, which is possible if you are a selfie person!

How to shoot with one hand? This is how it is done…

One hand shooter

One hand shooter

One hand operation

One hand operation through the touch screen

Thanks to Robin Ng for the behind the scene shots.

I was able to shoot with one hand as the Olympus OM-D E-M10 has a touch screen that lets you focus and shoot with a single touch. Yes, it is that easy! Focus was super fast, in fact the shot is immediately taken once you touch where you want to focus. What an incredible life saving feature for a one handed shooter like me. =)

Anyway, I’m sure by now you want to see some of the shots we captured that day. Here they are…

Conclusion…

Let me be honest, I was a bit skeptical that a micro 4/3 mirror less camera could deliver the kind of image that I was accustomed to. I’ve been shooting professionally with a full frame camera all these years and I must say the Olympus system has impressed me. I’m always a believer that when it comes to sensor size, bigger is always better. But today, I’m just amazed how technology has caught up, even a camera with a small micro 4/3 sensor could deliver what I wanted in an image.

Lets put it in short, if I had delivered the above images to a paying client. I’m certain that they will be more than happy with the images regardless of what camera was used. Plus one to Olympus! =)
