Wendy & Sheng Bali pre-wedding photography with vintage equipment

When Wendy contacted me first over email, she made it clear to me that she was not looking for those typical Bali pre-wedding photos that thousands of other couples had done before. Not those staged photos in front of famous tourist sites. Look-at-the-camera-and-smile – no way please…

What this lovely Malaysian bride was after were natural photographs. Which on one side show the beauty of Bali and on the other side capture the strong emotional bond of her and her fiance.

Wendy also told me that having fun is very important for her and her fiancé.

I loved this brief. Because I also prefer to bring my couples to locations which are off the beaten track and away from the hordes of tourists. And on the emotions side we are good anyway. Why ?

Because it is not for no reason that my style of photography is known as emotive photography. Whereby emotions always are at the center of my photography.

So the remaining challenge for me was to bring in the fun part… I leave it up to you to judge for yourself how successful I was with the ‘fun-part’ by having a look at the following photos:

I love BALI !

Authentic & pure Bali

The day went all smooth and we indeed had a lot of fun moving around a lesser known parts of Bali. For Wendy and Sheng this was an added bonus because they also got a glimpse of the authentic Bali which many tourist may not get to see.

I also applaud Wendy for her distinguished style ! The second outfit she was wearing was just gorgeous and looked so great on her. But don’t take my word for it. And the hat also fits perfectly.

Look for yourself:

Vintage Pre Wedding Photography

For me, this project was also special as I again had the opportunity to hone my skills in SLOW PHOTOGRAPHY. An approach to photography that involves using manual focusing lenses from my vintage lens collection. The more I use this 30 – 50-year-old equipment the more I love it.

The background blur in the photos, the colors and the overall feeling and tones, you simply cannot achieve that look with modern equipment. But hey, this is not about photographic equipment. Rather it is about the beautiful pre-wedding photos of Wendy & Sheng.

So let’s see some more:
