PG | Daren Chong

For a list of other wedding photographer options, click here

Clients of Daren Chong are impressed with his photography and work ethics. He would go the extra mile beyond his duty to optimize the result. Some other remarks were that he's friendly, approachable, passionate about the things he does, professional and he delivers great service. He possesses the skill to put the couple at ease during photo-taking. Darren's pre-wedding photo-shoot and editing skill is amazing, the actual wedding day photography is decent not as brilliant. Nonetheless he is on the fast track to success.

His packages include a video besides photo slideshow. He uploaded a few videos on vimeo: http://vimeo.com/21588397.

I found his work when I was researching for my wedding and was captivated hence this post.

His service is superb as he's not calculative and he goes the extra mile.He's very easy going too!
He made me 2 pre wedding slideshows and it contains video too, rather than just photos."

"i've met both Daren & Mun Keat and they are both friendly and approachable...i like Daren's pre wed style and Mun Keat's AD photography style...However given much consideration on time and budget constraint i decided to hire the same photog for both my pre wed and AD...i've picked Daren as i've heard alot of good remarks and compliments bout him being not calculative, passionate and professional...not that i've heard bad remarks bout Mun Keat but i've heard he's alwiz bz and timing is packed, that leaves little room for meeting and discussion with him as communication is rather crucial for wedding photography..."

"Just to share with you that I just had my pre wedding shooting by Daren Chong and i'm truly impressed with his work & photography style...he's very easy to work with, approachable & professional too!"

Mun Keat
Mun Keat is another inspiring talent. He received great commendation and admiration from couples he had worked with. From the input I compiled so far, he appeared to be a widely favored photographer. This expert is heavily booked up, and you have to make a reservation well in advance. It might be difficult to get a slot. I tried inquiring unfortunately he is not available on the day of my wedding, his assistant Celeste then referred me to a Senior Photographer of Frame Studio; Ndrew.

I have browsed through Mun Keat's highly acclaimed art work and was amazed. He is able to photograph the lovers' character and indicative mood. Almost similar to acting in a movie of their real-life stories; you have the romantic comedy, the drama, thriller, fantasy... It requires detailed execution of art directing by MK himself. They are simply awesome!

Cannot decide between a bridal shop and professional photographer for your pre-wedding pictures, this article may render a little help: Bridal Shop vs Photojournalism.

"I really adored the photos that Mun Keat took for my bridesmaid for her R.O.M. and decided to meet up with him sometime in August last year. Stella, my wedding planner arranged the meeting and after viewing his portfolio, I booked him as my wedding photographer. He is friendly (extremely smiley!) and comes across as someone who is genuine. Plus he has a good sense of humour."

Mun Keat and Adam Ong formed Frame[S]tudio in Aug 2010. Teamwork strengthens the chain. I can imagine how knowledge sharing among people of various expertise is able to bring the team into greater heights.

Music For a Romantic Event

It will be uplifting for friends and family to experience the joy and romantic element of your big day. Music is a very useful tool to set the right mood for this.

Jazz music is calm, smooth very suited for a romantic event. Jazz performer, Debbie (in the video below) improvises the song in her individual ways. The performance is successful because she collaborates well with the musicians and interacts with the crowd using her own interpretation of the tune. Jazz involves some alteration of melody, sometimes with conflicting and interruption of the rhythms. She is able to capture the emotions embodied in the music by swinging melodiously.

The effects created by Saxophone playing stir up strong feelings and go right to your heart. The way saxophone player, Sharil holds the note in a linear way for a while then vibrates the tone to increase the intensity is quite captivating. The approaches such as flutter tonguing - the effect that creates a growling, raspy sound, split tones, attack and release are what make sax music so sexy. It gets people to have profound and dramatic mood transitions.

A String Quartet is a musical ensemble of four string instruments consisting of two violins, a viola and a cello. The first violin which provides the melody is the leader. The second violin is quieter, it harmonizes well. To carry a more majestic tone, the cellist plays the base line. The viola has a thicker sound than the violin. It is able to fill in the harmonies between the crystal violin and forceful cello. The use of stringed orchestral instruments creates great intensity of expression. A piece like "Canon in D" can spark off the emotions of a blissful marriage.

Amazing Results by Popular Chris Fong Make Up

The older post I wrote about Chris Fong became the undisputed most popular bridal makeup artist page of WEDresearch wedding blog. It fetched in total of 1510 hits, the all time highest with the most Facebook LIKES. Hence there's little reason for me not to write another blog review on this popular MUA. I was initially drawn to her by the "before and after" makeup photos on her official websites. The transformation was unbelievably amazing. I thought she created wonders with her proficient fingers.

With this post I have carried out a more in depth study and gathered better understanding on her bridal styling. Chris understands every bride's desire to be beautiful and to photograph well. She is going to make you look like the best version of yourself not someone barely recognizable. After a session of careful analysis on the results she delivered, I am now more convinced of the reason she's so widely admired. The bridal makeup is not over-applied. Chris contours the bride's facial and eyes attributes to compose an outstanding look intensifying their own natural beauty. 

Read the actual brides' reviews and understand their perceptions of Chris Fong. Brides loved the natural makeup and fantastic hairdo she created which turned them into a classic beauty. She is very talented and professional in conforming to the situation at hand. No more puffy eyes! The computing term WYSIWYG is the acronym for "What you see is what you get". Likewise Chris' deliverable is WYAIWYG which is "What you ask is what you get". Her customers seemed to receive the styling they requested with high satisfaction.

AnsonC @ Mar 2010
"Hi, my MUA was Chris Fong. I need to share this with you, she is very talented and professional, and I received a lot of compliments from my guests about how pretty but natural I look during my wedding dinner. I had short hair and had been really worried about how my look will turn out to be. 2 weeks before my wedding event Chris came to my house, and I shared my concern with her and told her that I did not want to wear fake long hair, she took note of my request and just asked me to get some hair piece that I like, which I did. And the whole effect turned out awesome! I also told her I wanted elegant, "bare" and natural look, I did not like heavy make up, and again she did a really good job. When we met, Chris went thru' all my gowns to have a better idea of how to design my makeup and hairdo."


Brides were absolutely delighted with the results crafted by Chris as they were complimented about how pretty they looked. With her experience, she is able to turn a concern or problematic condition into an advantage. The anxious bride with short hair got an awesome bridal look with the right combination of hair piece, accessories, makeup and styling. Veron commented Chris got rid of her puffy eyes and turned her from a monster into a beauty. Btw she is not at all a monster :) (photo below)

Groom's Suit/ Attire

Men suits don't have the variety of and are not as fancy as bridal gowns. Nevertheless there are still many details to look into in finding the right suit for your wedding. If you want to look suave and sharp, choosing the right combination/ measurement of jacket, tie, cravat, shirt, waistcoat (vest), pants that fits you is the way to go.

The basic difference between Tuxedo and Suit. Tuxedo shirts have pleated front and the jacket lapels are covered in satin material. Tux pants feature matching satin stripe going down the outer leg of the pants. It is suitable for semi formal events like prom, weddings, charity events, award ceremonies. Suit shirt has a plain front, long sleeves with full length buttoned. It is worn on more conservative and formal events like business meetings, weddings, funerals.

Here are some general rules of how your suit should fit. For instance, half inch of your shirt cuff is exposed, shoulder should be slightly sloping downward evenly, the width of the pants should be adjusted so they hang without any bulges, jacket is in the right length and should just cover the top of your rear end...

The material to consider when tailoring a suit is Wool. Most modern suits are made of wool and it is perhaps the safest choice if you are unsure of the fabric to choose. It’s a very versatile fabric, comfortable, wrinkle-resistant, and has greater durability compared to others. Another characteristic that makes wool an ideal suit fabric is its ability to keep their wearers warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather.

Cotton can absorb sweat and keep you cool in hot weather. This fabric is quite practical as it’s machine-washable. However 100 percent cotton tends to crease and wrinkle somewhat easily.

A linen suit is lightweight and will keep you very cool but it creases very easily.

Tweed is a heavy fabric that makes it easy for the wearer to keep warm but you will be sweating in hot weather.

Ann Ong Make Up Studio
She did the makeup for my sister's wedding AD. I like her technique, the face doesn't look too dense on the verge of cracking, but is able to to bring out the bride's natural beauty. She is a versatile hair-stylist, you have to tell her how you want to wear your hair; updo, long, bangs, curl, beehive, crown braid, bun, french twist... I don't quite fancy some of the hair styles on her website though, very much depending on the bride's fashion interest. I think she is good in a conventional way.

Bridal makeup charges: 
1. RM800 - Two sessions within a day 
2. RM900 - Two sessions in two different days
3. RM300 - One Session; eg: engagements, ROMs
- Makeup trial costs RM80 (not refundable) without hairdo.
- Additional charge for outstation.
- Reservation is secured with a payment of RM200.

Some feedback gathered denotes her manner of makeup is too light and insufficient to cover certain skin blemishes. Girls who pick her will be able to keep away from looking artificial and having excessive cosmetics on their face. Ann can make you shine by magnifying your pretty features but not over doing it. Brides who favor this technique praised her for the result. You have to communicate with her about the hair styling preferred as she uses simple hair accessories.

Where to Buy Your Dream Wedding Dress Online - cocomelody.com

When I was looking for my wedding dress I was clueless of the various sources available, hence I went straight to the bridal shops, which is the most standard option I guess. Little did I know that online shopping can be not only easy, but there are also more choices and the price is very attractive. My concern was the reliability of making a purchase on the Internet. Now more and more people are open to this method and the experience can be a wonderful one. Make sure it is not a dodgy website with a load of pop-up ads and check the reviews from other clients.

MUA | Aivy Yong - Part 1

There's another more updated post about Aivy Yong here.

Aivy is characterized as skillful, professional, punctual and able to fulfill the customer's requirements. Brides are happy with the results so far. She uses the air-brush technique which is spraying microdots of liquid foundation masking your face to not exaggerate the pores, giving it a more natural look. Do be mindful, this technique may not compliment your skin, my advice is test it first, book one round of trial with Aivy. It can work wonders covering blemishes evenly which cannot be achieved by traditional makeup.

It's Our Decision


To many of us marriage is a very important milestone of our lives. LOVE is usually the reason. If love is a feeling, then the only thing we can do is enjoy it when it comes and hope for it to come back soon when it is not there. If love, however is a decision, it becomes something I can choose to have at any moment of my life. We then begin to be less self-centered and more other-centered. We decide to grow in love and put the need to listen ahead of the solution to the problem. I focus my attention on your goodness. I can choose to focus on my beloved not just when our romance is at its peak, but when I feel angry, resentful, hurt or depressed. We choose to be active participants of our relationship and reveal the true good/ bad feelings through communication, we choose to have a love affair that lasts a lifetime.
