Are you having the Monday Blueeeeees? Or still in a holiday mooooood?
Did you kena a lot of flying arrows from your relatives? When getting girlfriend, when proposing to girlfriend, when getting married? I was hit with a lot of arrows myself too! The enemies were too strong, and my defence system was too weak. Le Sigh…
I do realise that a lot of my friends are not gan jiong about getting married at all. They’re happy with what they have now – single and free, don’t have to answer to anybody else. I also have some friends who are in a relationship with their partner for quite some time, but hesitant about popping the question.
I guess sometimes besides that bit of 感动, you also need a bit of 冲动 to propose. Otherwise you’ll be like one of the many couples who got married because it’s the next natural progression to their years of relationship.
So to inspire you, for those couple who are thinking of getting married, Raymond Phang Photography is offering a really special limited time only actual day photography package to give you that extra push and boost to pop the question. The Facebook Promo and Blog Promo are actually the same, just that for readers of Raymond Phang Photography’s blog, you’ll get extra! That’s for supporting us all these while. 🙂
For details, send your email to contactme @ raymondphang.com or whatsapp your wedding date and requirement to +65 8138 3397. Promo slots availability are based on first come first serve basis, once they are filled, we will not open anymore promo slots for this event. 🙂
Today, I’ll be sharing some behind the scene shots which I have taken for Mingrui and Jingting’s proposal photoshoot. It was really quite exciting to be part of MR’s team. All those conspiracy, plannings and execution to make sure JT smell zero fish or rats actually took place bout a month before the actual proposal day!
That’s Raymond and Ben the two botaks.
So the whole plan goes something like this;
JT enjoys blogshop shopping, so MR will have to dig a few of her favourite blogshops so that we can come up with this story -XXX blogshop calls MR to engage him and JT for a trial sunset photoshoot for their upcoming project. This will be the first time meeting, so XXX blogshop will require the couple to bring along suitable choice of clothes for the shoot. They will also bring some outfits from their sponsors for the couple to try on.
XXX blogshop will also explain the rough direction and style they’re looking to achieve for the shoot, things to prepare, and the rough itinerary.
The email drafted by MR was so real that he even included payment details and also JT will get to keep all the clothes selected for the photoshoot. If the shoot goes well and there’s future projects, they will consider MR and JT again, and same thing, the perks listed are too darn attractive just to entice JT to say yes to the photoshoot. Else JT might never agree cos it’s supposed to be their special day and she would want to block if off so that they can spend the day together in private.
So we met the couple at One degree 15 Marina, pretending to be our first time meeting MR as well but all the while I’ve been texting MR for updates. Hahaha! We shook hands, introduced each other, briefly run through what’s gonna happen for the day and had Desmond the skipper drove us out to Lazarus Island for the photoshoot.
All these are the cute kitty cats on Lazarus. Spot kitty!
So Ben took some photographs of the couple while Raymond helped Ben with the reflector.
Hold reflector also so happy. -.-”
We shot around the island for a short while, and then requested for the couple to change to the second outfit.
We walked to the beach area.
This was JT in her second outfit which is a floral dress.
And by time we were done, we requested for her to change into the third final outfit for the proposal.
JT is really smiley, and there’s a tinge of innocence in her which I think all guys will like their partners to have. Muwahahahahahahahaha!!
Then while waiting for JT to change, I was hiding in the yacht and saw MR looking out. Guess he must be trying to recompose his feelings, and think of the things that he’ll be saying really soon when JT is done changing.
JT is finally done, and I was still hiding inside. Hahahaha!! The guys continued to take some photographs of JT first while MR went on to change.
MR is all made up, and even got the hand bouquet ready. By that time, the sun was almost setting. I was going to the back pretending to take something while the guys had JT sat down to see the iPad. Excuse given was for her to view some of the photos taken during the earlier session. But actually MR has prepared a slideshow specially for her. When the music is almost ending, MR appeared before JT, knelt down, presented her with the flower, carried on with the mushy messages for her, waited for her to say yes before he slipped the ring on her finger.
Every proposal story is different, some are uber touching and super mushy. Some are just so darn elaborate involving flash mobs and all, some are done in toilet, some in theatres. Some at home when the lady is just out of a shower. Some proposal are very typical, like say, eh, let’s apply for a flat. But I guess it’s not the extend of how grand or elaborate the proposal is, and it doesn’t have to be at a fancy restaurant. Always remember, it’s the heart that matters. The intention to marry you, the thought of wanting to spend the rest of his life with you and not any other girl. You’re one special and fortunate girl! 😀
For JT, she said yes but she didn’t cry. Muwahahahahahaha! I think guys always expect their girl to cry when they pop the question. But girls are really sensitive, they can sniff out bits and pieces of info and piece them together to form a story, if not speculation. For JT, apparently she already smell a rat going on. Hahahahaha! And she’s really cute, turns out she don’t really like the outfit and she started asking questions like when did he started planning all these, did he ask her parents beforehand and stuffs.
Left Lazarus Island, tour around the city for some sight seeing and to soak in the cooling breeze.
The couple changed into something more casual and relaxed.
I’m not a professional photographer, so please pardon these photos but JT was really bubbly. She laughs at the slightest things.
So Desmond brought us to this spot to wait for the Fireworks which MR has specially indented for;
The waiting and bobbing wasn”t fun. End up Ben had seasick and JT also couldn’t stand it.
Surprisingly I was fine!
Actually the fireworks is from Sentosa. Hahahahahahahahahaha!! You can only catch it at certain timing when they have a show. :p
Yeap, that about sums up this behind the scene proposal entry.
Remember to spend some time and think about what you want in life, and who you’d like to share the rest of your life with. If you have a very special person in mind already and you’re planning to propose to her, let us know. We do proposal photography coverage, and currently we are having a limited time only special package for actual day wedding photography.
