WPN wishes everyone a HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!

The Wedding Photographers Network had our monthly gathering. For January, we decided to do a fun series to celebrate the Chinese New Year. It was really fun and full of laughters…..you can see more “behind the scenes” video footage at the end of this post.

With these set of fun images, we wish our readers a very prosperous Chinese New Year and join us in our fun !!!!!!!

Food for thought : won’t it be more fun and memorable if wedding couples can set up a crazy photobooth and hire us to shoot such series during cocktail hour where we film when they go to the Champagne Shop and order their drinks as well as when drinking and having fun???

Hann + Joseph Wedding in Bali

My last wedding of 2008 was graced by Hann & Joseph in beautiful Bali. They were married high up on a cliff side chapel in Southern Bali overlooking the Indian Ocean. This venue was superb for a few reasons: the view and the exceptional privacy of the location. Hann and Joseph are the couple that I adore. They are so relax and unassuming, making my job so much easier.

The two-day fete started on Friday, when guests checked into their villas. By day, everyone had plenty to do, such as exploring the Tanah Lot sunset or enjoying relaxing spa massages by the beaches. On Saturday morning, the group headed to Uluwatu for the church ceremony at the gorgeous Tirtha Uluwatu Chapel, facing the Indian Ocean.

The reception was held at the Breeze Restaurant with the the most gorgeous view of sunset in Bali. Editing these pictures over the last few days has made it hard to resist to book next plane to Bali, I’ll be back very soon!

Joseph and Hann - Your pictures broke through the last threads of realism we have been holding on to for this wedding. Thank you for capturing these surreal and magical moments for us to look back on many years down the road. And *quote bel*, when our “ding dangs/dongs are hanging on the floor”, we will remember this day fondly with misty eyes while looking through these beautiful pictures. No other photographer would have captured our moments better than you. Thanks for sharing your gift with us, Gabriel. We still cannot believe that everything went so beautifully, inpossibly, magically, blessedly well… We cannot ask for more. Sigh…

The Ng family @ Christmas Eve 2008

This year’s Christmas, the Ng family received a special Christmas gift from their friend, Yvonne. This special present is an absolute “one of a kind” family power portrait session with me…yeah!
Indeed, this was really a “one of a kind” session, cos we had the accompany of a formidable combo consist of one very cute 9 month old baby gal, two active golden retrievers, and a very fierce cat!

Merry X’mas!!

This is Sami

Okay, let’s do a normal shot before the fun begins!

Obviously, Alexandria prefers Mommy

Jimmy + Aiping TOGETHER!

I shot Jimmy and Aiping’s wedding in 2006 and it is a sweet surprise that Aiping call me up to book my portrait service as a birthday surprise gift for Jimmy. Jimmy is a professional juggler (see link). So we spend the rainy Hari Raya afternoon doing some new looks for his new alter ego Jimmy Juggler as well as portraits of the lovely couple. The good thing about shooting married couples is that they are able to enter into “my photography zone” immediately that makes my job so much easier. Happy birthday again to Jimmy Juggler!

Chi Minh & Ai Ping - Hey Gabriel, we’re delighted with the photos you’ve put on your blog! We enjoyed the photo session with you this afternoon because it was fun and relaxing. You certainly have a good eye for visuals…and a warm, easy-going, and sincere disposition…that makes every photo session by you a memorable experience.
