Love in a lalang field

Yesterday’s photoshoot was all the way at the far end of Tuas – it was an eye-opener for us to be there for the first time! But as the sun began to set, we realised why the journey was totally worthwhile – the rays cast an absolutely gorgeous glow onto the fields, and of course, the beautiful couple aiming for that perfect shot to cherish for all time.

Thanks to Jianping and Lynn for taking our turquoise bike out for a ride – you guys looked absolutely lovely in the beautiful lalang field. Congrats again, and glad we could contribute in some way! Your happy faces are why we love doing this!

A wedding with bicycles and races

So happy to be a part of Ying Tian’s beautiful race-themed wedding yesterday. She’s one of the most cheerful and optimistic girls I know, not to mention she is HOT because of her sporty nature. Here are some photos she shared with us from her Facebook page, as well as screenshots from her instagram hastag #racetcyt. Check out the hastag, loads more photos of the cute pair!

What a beautiful couple, congrats to the both of them and here’s wishing them a wonderful life ahead riding off into the sunset :)

A perfect backdrop in old school playgrounds

A couple rented our bike yesterday for their wedding photo shoot. So exciting! They wanted to go for a retro feel – that means old school coffee shops, toast and eggs, old relics and other nostalgic elements from yesteryear.

In the end they picked one of our favourite spots for a few shots – an old-school dragon playground from a bygone era. It’s one of the last few of such playground structures still standing! How many of you remember sliding down this dragon head slide and feeling absolutely terrified? We do! It was a great time of simplicity and childish delight. We are definitely not fond of the new-age playgrounds, with their shiny, brightly coloured and modern contraptions – but that’s a debate for another day.

We super love how cute our vintage white bike looks at this playground. It definitely added a quaint and romantic touch to the shoot, don’t you think? Imagine what you can do with our bike and a little creativity! :)

We are so happy for the lovely couple! May they have a beautiful and magical wedding :)

Add a bike to your shoot for a touch of charm

I’ve always had an obsession with lower body shots, back views, top down and wide faraway shots –  basically anything that doesn’t show the frontal face. It just seems more quaint and nostalgic, more tender and melancholic.

Of course, it only helps if your thighs are stick thin (mine are noticeably not).

When you add bikes to the foray, it manages to add an even greater touch of enchanting charm, transforming your shoot into something ten times more romantic.

Now these photos below, they are a work of art. Don’t they just make you go “Awwww”?

We are pretty sure you can emulate these, or better yet, unleash your own creativity to create your own spectacular shots. Rent our bikes (see below) to do that now :)

Say “I do”, with a bicycle

Check out this lovely blog post from an American cyclist-blogger about Weddings and Bicycles – http://lovelybike.blogspot.sg/2011/04/on-weddings-and-bicycles.html

To quote her:

“Increasingly, bicycles and weddings are becoming an iconic combination – seen on wedding photographer and bicycle manufacturer websites alike.

What is it about weddings and bicycles? There is, of course, the ever-popular Daisy Bell song, which keeps the association alive. Plus, the start of “cycling season” corresponds with the start of “wedding season.” And while I put these in quotation marks, because both getting married and riding a bicycle are things that can be done year-round, any wedding photographer and bicycle shop owner will tell you that they get most of their business in April through October.

Spring symbolises renewal, optimism, and a fresh start – which is appealing to cyclists and newlyweds alike.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!

Wedding shoot perfect

A couple of friends of mine got married last year and borrowed our dutch bike for an impromptu shoot after we bumped into them. Taken at Marina Barrage, it was a beautiful addition to their wedding photo book and showed their utter joy and carefree delight with each other as they pedalled away towards their future. The pair looked really happy and at ease, and we were so humbled to be part of their journey. The photo even ended up as their main picture for their event signboard! So proud!

Here’s are some pictures of their shoot (their faces and names have been blurred, to protect their privacy)!
