Faizal and Aishah wanted to commemorate their first anniversary with an engagement photography session. Aishah wished some shots to be done on a field of long grass, so where else in urban Singapore but of course, the Punggol beach; which provided us with the tall Lalang grass. Plus, we also get to use the beach for some wonderful sunrise shots by the seaside. So I scouted the location and after some hiking, found a little sweet spot of the beach which were then still unpolluted by the construction work going around. We discussed wardrobe and settled on a little cute white summer dress for Aishah and for Faizal; khakis with a cotton shirt to match. And Aishah has a little flower hair band which I thought adds favorably to the summer look as well.
On shoot day we reached the location just before sunrise and were rewarded with one of the best light nature has to offer. It didn’t just give us nice pictures, it actually enhanced our mood for the whole session. I thank the couple for bearing with the pricking grasses and the searing heat at the later part of the session, and also my assistant Cashmere Matthews for her hard work.
