Main Photographer: Edwin Tan
Assistant Photographer: Myself
This is not my first time going to Melaka for a shoot but it is the first time that I will be assisting a wedding photographer, Edwin, to photograph another well-known wedding photographer in Melaka, SK Yong. I believe his wife has now joined him as well, so they are a husband-wife tag team.
We arrived the night before to get some rest and also to eat the awesome satay celup in Melaka. The next day started early in the morning at the famous St Paul Church.
The best thing about photographing another wedding photographer is that they understand the process and also the fact that sometimes, we just need more than one try to get it right. SK Yong and Mong were both super easy to work with and they had no complains about doing something over and over again. Not that we asked them to do it too many times
From St Paul Church, we walked down towards the other famous building in Melaka, the Stadthuys Building or we can just call it the Red Building. There is a museum here and the venue provided quite a few good locations for the shoot.
SK Yong, being the man for weddings in Melaka, was the perfect guide for the shoot as well. Talk about playing double roles as groom and guide as he brought to us different locations that we could use. He brought us to the back of the museum which was quite nice. Edwin almost replicated his famous shot but decided against it after I became the guinea pig and laid down on the floor, which was not too comfortable.
We were close to wrapping up so we decided to move on to Jonker Street and see what we could do there. It was here that we finally found the restaurant that had the famous spiral staircase in Melaka. Not only did we get a great shoot location, we also managed to grab our lunch – chicken rice balls.
Just a few more shots after lunch and it was a wrap for us. Thank you Edwin for the opportunity and thank you SK Yong and Mong for having us
