Capturing the Magic -Go behind the scene to how we photograph a wedding at The Datai Langkawi

Dear brides and grooms to be,


Welcome back to another blog post! Today, we are excited to share a behind-the-scenes look at a beautiful wedding we recently photographed at The Datai Langkawi. Whether you’re planning your own wedding at this stunning location or are simply curious about our process, this journey will offer you valuable insights and a glimpse into the magic of wedding photography.

Arrival and Preparations

We kicked off the day by arriving at The Datai Langkawi, greeted by Brian from the resort. As the bridal party and our team settled in, we began with some essential still-life photography, capturing details like engagement rings and other significant elements. These early shots are crucial, as they set the stage before the hustle and bustle of the bridal preparations.

The Bride’s Preparations

Jojo and her makeup crew arrived, and while they worked their magic, we focused on photographing the bridal accessories and the bride’s gradual transformation. It’s a delicate balance to capture these moments, ensuring the bride feels comfortable and beautiful throughout the process. We prioritize these preparation shots because they are intimate and tell a story leading up to the ceremony.

The Groom and Groomsmen

Meanwhile, Eric was with the groom and his groomsmen, capturing their preparations. The contrast between the calm, detailed shots of the bride and the lively, candid moments with the groom adds depth to the wedding album. We strive to keep the photography authentic, preserving genuine moments and emotions.

Pre-Ceremony Portraits

Before the ceremony, we took some portraits of the bride in her dress, ensuring every detail was perfect. These portraits are often taken before the ceremony to allow the bride and groom to enjoy their special day without interruption. It’s all about capturing those serene, timeless moments.

The Ceremony

The ceremony itself was a swift yet beautiful event. Having two photographers was invaluable, allowing us to cover different angles and moments simultaneously. Eric and I documented the entire ceremony, capturing the essence of the couple’s love and the joy of their guests.

Post-Ceremony Fun and Portraits

After the ceremony, we moved to the beach for some stunning sunset portraits. Timing is everything, especially with the changing light, and we made sure to balance the heat with the perfect sunset glow. The bridal party and couple’s portraits were a mix of planned and spontaneous moments, creating a well-rounded portfolio.

Special Touches and Farewells

To cap off the day, we printed some of the day’s photos and presented them to the couple, their bridal party, and their families. This personal touch allowed them to take a piece of the day home with them immediately, and it was a heartfelt way to say our goodbyes.
