Henri & Diana’s Pre-wedding Love Story :: Paris

Henri & Diana Love Story Pre wedding :: Paris from JXS Wedding Cinema on Vimeo.

We were so worried before departing to Paris for many reasons. Our equipment weighted almost 80KG and baggage allowance is only limited to 60KG for 2 pax. We spent weeks of discussion on how to bring the heavy equipment over to Paris and finally, we made it. Kenn is kind enough to help us to carry another 20KG.

The Challenges

The film comprises of 2 main scenes. Casual and Wedding gown and suit. it looks pretty in sequence in the film but actually it was shot randomly due to the location we visited. For example, the transition of casual wear to formal wedding dress shot, we shot the wedding gown scene first. Then we returned to hotel and changed the casual wear. we returned to the park and continued the casual scene. Thus, the planning was crucial. We can’t afford to miss any of the scenes in order to combine all of them into smooth storyline.

The aviation authority in Paris is one of our concern for Helicam. I didn’t put much hope on aerial shot in Paris as the local government keep their eyes strictly on those popular landmarks at all time. We were warned by the local polices few times. Luckily, Henri and Diana were so sporting although we have many NGs in between. They will never give up and keep trying until we manage to capture our desired shots. Polices are everywhere at Eiffel tower. We had to be very quick to take off the helicam. The distance between helicam’s take off point and Diana’s place is about 200m away. There was no line-of-sight to Diana and I couldn’t give any signal to her. The only solution is to use walkie talkie. Thanks to the person who invented the walkie talkie! 4 of us were communicating via walkie especially the helicam at Eiffel Tower shot. When the Heli was hovering in the sky, I paged Kenn to give signal to Diana. While Diana was walking on the corridor, Pauline started shooting from far using long range lens at the same time. Big thank to Diana and Henri, and most importantly, The Undivided Team.

Mark & Sophie’s Wedding SDE

Mark & Sophie’s Wedding SDE from JXS Wedding Cinema on Vimeo.

The many carefully selected details that made this celebration unique were coordinate by The Cheong Sisters under the supervision of Phoebe, and our team was honored to capture all the details for such a great couple, Mark and Sophie. We didn’t really emphasize on the gaming portion as we understand from Sophie that she prefers more on white wedding gown scenes. In certain angle of Sophie, she really look like Kelly Chen, an actress from Hong Kong. This was one of the hot topic of their wedding day.

Shaz + TH :: Pre Wedding | Ilocos Norte

Shaz + TH :: Pre Wedding | Ilocos Norte from JXS Wedding Cinema on Vimeo.

Shaz is a very friendly bride. She treats everyone like her guest. Every time the photographer and myself shows her the preview from the camera, she will definitely throw back one question. “Are you happy with the shot?” As long as the photographer is happy with the shot, she is happy. Shaz trusts us completely. I told Shaz that she is like the personal assistant for everyone during the trip. She plans our itinerary perfectly and all the flight detail, hotel voucher, time table for every meal, insurance detail are well prepared.

Joanne & Jowei’s Wedding SDE

Joanne & Jowei’s Wedding SDE from JXS Wedding Cinema on Vimeo.

When i first looked at the itinerary of Joanne and Jowei’s wedding, i told Joanne, i’m going to make a magic shot for her wedding. I planned to make an aerial shot by flying the helicam backward from the hotel balcony towards to the sea. But the schedule is extremely tight. So theoretically, due to the tight schedule and windy condition, the success rate is almost 0%. Finally, thanks to Joanne and wedding planner for giving me such a great opportunity to make it happen. I personally love the march in scene and first dance. Originally, the first dance was scheduled at the end of the program, but during the meeting with wedding planner and Joanne, i suggested to slot in the first dance session right after the 2nd course. Why? because I wanted to challenge myself again. This is another “First” wedding film of mine to include the first dance into the SDE. After the preview of SDE, Joanne and Jowei walked towards me and gave me a hug. I heard compliments everywhere, in the ballroom, in the lift. Once again, thanks to the couple Joanne and Jowei, the wedding planners and my team Max and Pauline for making this SDE another success.

Daniel & Isabel’s Wedding SDE

Daniel & Isabel’s Wedding SDE from JXS Wedding Cinema on Vimeo.

It is always full of fun when covering a typical Chinese wedding. One of the highlight of the SDE is definitely the games and the gate crashing. Daniel and Isabel didn’t have much requirement except for some crying scenes which Isabel requested not to include that in the SDE. We did propose to Daniel for some magic shot by Helicam but due to time constrains, we didn’t make it. But we managed to operate our Helicam in the grand ballroom this time. Due to the air flow from the air conditioner in the ballroom, it was very challenging to operate the heli with altitude hold. It flew up and down and it didn’t hover well. We had to keep our eyes on the heli every second.

Darren & Shiau Cheng’s Wedding SDE

Darren & Shiau Cheng’s Wedding SDE from JXS Wedding Cinema on Vimeo.

I was given no option on song selection for the SDE this time. Shiau Cheng’s favorite song, Big Jet Plane by Angus and Julia. This is a very nice song indeed but if i were to use it in the SDE, i have to change my shooting style. Energetic approach is definitely not my choice this time. Surprisingly Shiau Cheng is very good in posing. There are many directed shots in the SDE be it in the actual day wedding or pre-wedding scene. With this song, I have to turn the entire SDE into a MTV instead.

Steven & Violet’s Wedding SDE

We emphasized more on gift exchange session this time to tell the story in emotional way. We love the gift exchange session very much. Initially the notes reading was not in plan. But the wedding event doesn’t have any gate crashing event thus, we decided to add in some additional ingredient in the SDE.

Gregor & Charmaine’s Wedding SDE

I always love garden wedding. Believe it or not, Gregor and Charmaine’s garden wedding is the most beautiful one that i ever film. The wedding was held beside the pool in the garden. And it is surrounded by the trees. The wedding is simple but Charmaine and Gregor gave a wonderful vows which made a lot of relatives and friends cried when watching the SDE in the ballroom.

Edrian John & Stella Jane’s Wedding Highlight

I told Edrian and Stella that if i managed to take off and land the helicam in the church successfully then i will officially declare it as a “Miracle”. I wasn’t thinking about the quality of the footage because i didn’t expect too much from the output. I always wanted to challenge myself so i asked Edrian whether we should fly it in the church. Edrian didn’t think twice and said “Let’s do it”. This is the first time i flew my helicam in the church. Stella later came to me and told me that i have successfully created the miracle.

Sydnee & Daniel’s Wedding SDE

Sydnee told me in Whatsapp that she will drive me crazy during the wedding day. I told this to Max in the car when we were on the way to PJ. We were trying to figure out the pose for the pre-wedding in Putrajaya, We didn’t have chance to meet the couple until the pre-wedding shooting day. No ice breaking session before the shooting day but when i first met Sdynee at her house, she started to drive me crazy. She tells joke with serious face. This confuse me whether to believe her or not every time she tells me something. Sydnee and Daniel are the most easy going couple that we have ever met.

Nick & Jess’s Wedding – Krabi Thailand

Nick and Jess are very kind and caring person. They did not treat as their wedding videographer but they treat us like their friends. Other than thank you, we really do not know what to tell them in order to express our feeling. On the wedding eve, the weather was so bad and we almost cancel our pre-wed shooting but the rain stopped 30 minutes later. We were really worried about the weather on their big day but thank god, the weather was perfect on Saturday. We departed to Koh Hong Island early Saturday morning to cover the aerial shots. We enjoyed the event very much. We were like one of their friend who came all the way to Krabi to cerebrate with them. The program is rich and almost 0 hour break time. The shooting was challenging but thanks to Nick’s hospitality during the stay in Krabi, everything was perfect.

Ilya & Sammi’s Wedding SDE

Ilya and Sammi both are real busy. We were quite worried as we were not informed about the exact venue of the ceremony and reception until the final week of their big day. After the wedding, we can conclude that Ilya and Sammi are extremely kind person. The ceremony and reception were held on 2 different day. Hence, we had prenty of time for the NDE. We spent nearly 2 hours on the wedding gown shooting and had done uncountable attempts to get the perfect shot.

Cultural difference doesn’t matter when two people have the same beating heart. The heart that is filled with love for each other. Here we present the the story of Douglas and Tabitha. Some wedding assignments are full of challenges, especially preparing the SDE in short time frame given. But we were so relaxed in this assignment as we were not required to prepare the SDE.

Gorman & Agnes’s Wedding SDE

We arrived 1 day earlier before the wedding day. Sekeping Tenggiri House is very popular for pre-wedding shooting. I guess more of the pre-wedding photographer know this place very well. We’ve actually been to this place week before to meet up with Gorman and Agnes. We planned to do some pre-wedding shooting on wedding eve but unfortunately due to constraint of time, we were unable to do so. The night cerebration with Agnes friends was unexpected one. I was in my room around 10:30pm and i saw the girls were opening up the champagne. It was a very sweet moment thus i decided to grab my camera and capture it down.
