Capturing September

It’s the end of the September holidays, meaning it’ll be a month till the last day of the school year and thus the year end vacation is in sight. I’ve been blessed with more rizq this month with almost all four weekends in September booked for wedding assignments. I haven’t processed the photos yet, but here’s a sneak peek at what I’ve been up to the first half of this month.

Of Love and Engagements

Ever since a close friend of mine introduced me to Style Me Pretty, I’ve been obsessed about party decorating and photographing events the way SMP features them. Last week, I was given the opportunity to photograph Sheriza’s wonderful engagement party. In other words, my dreams of taking SMP-like photos came true! Congratulations to you both! Cannot wait for your big day! 🙂

Sheriza made this cake herself! And she spent an entire day stamping those letters on the flags. A for effort!

A Little Update

Life has been hectic, especially when I’m juggling three jobs at once, for no apparent reason. While the students are having their holidays, I go to work settling admin stuff and pretty much prepare myself for a new semester with them next year. On top of that, I’m finishing my last round tuition before I start on a new batch of students. And of course, since its the holidays, it also means wedding season! Not that I have many assignments but last Sunday marks the first wedding assignment I’m tasked to do… alone!

I am finally free from my reigns of being a trainee under my beloved sister from another set of parents, Mai SB. I hope I do her proud. It was tough doing it alone, but nonetheless a good experience. Not to mention that the bride and groom are extremely beautiful and wonderful to work with. Sure, there were a few hiccups and challenges, but it’s all part of the job!

I am looking forward to the next wedding next weekend, albeit I’ll be doing videography instead of photography. Mai’s doing the photography. And of course I’m looking forward to it cause it’s one of my Fityan friend’s wedding! 

In times like these, I really thank God for everything He has showered me with. I may have had someone taken away from me, but I’m blessed with many other people and things that I don’t need to worry about my fate. I just need to have a little faith 😉
