Penang Train Station couple photoshoot by Jon : Sam & Yieng

It’s less than a week away from the wedding of my close friends; Sam and Yieng. This time, I will not be attending a wedding as a photographer, but as a groomsman. One of the ceremonies in a chinese wedding is gate-crashing. What is gate-crashing? In a chinese wedding, the groom will pick his bride from her home. However, the bridesmaids would not allow the groom and his groomsmen to simply whisk the bride away. They will usually prepare a series of games and the groom and his groomsmen must sportingly overcome them. Over the years, some of these gate-crashing games have become outright humiliating. Well, I hope for the best.

Some time back, I took some photos for them. I have posted them on Pixellot’s facebook page but I think it’s a good time to blog about them. Sam and Yieng have been an item for about 10 years now, and for most of the time, they are in a long-distance relationship. They are so affectionate towards each other… perhaps it’s true that absence do make the heart grow fonder.






Here’s a wonderful quote from an unknown author to end the post.

Distance between two hearts is not an obstacle; rather a beautiful reminder of just how strong true love can be.
