Philip & Gevany Hughes - Outdoor Portraiture Session - Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

Photobucket

Residing in the UK after they got married, I finally came face to face with this lovely couple in Kota Kinabalu, few days right after Christmas! Booked for half a year for this photography session was indeed an intriguing experience for me.
Hmmm.. lets see, can count this my 1st international couple ah? hahahaa..

Celebrating their 2nd anniversary, this couple flew down to visit Gevany's family in KK...and then for another long 'honeymoon' around South East Asia.. Two months was it? Envy em!! Okay.. back to my story now. The site we shot at was located somewhere in Tanjung Aru. Planned to shoot at some nice paddy field around Penampang but time & sun did not permit us to travel. Though so, I'd like to thank brother Chai, for driving us around the day before scouting for sites.

We started shooting at Gevany's parents place and there on it lead to a beach & finally a run down building nearby. Having blasts of laughs with the couple, the session was very much ENTERTAINED! You see, being a photographer, sometimes it takes a lot from me to direct poses with my 'subjects' but these two were very much spontaneous, especially Gevany! I HARDLY find a moment to not hear her giggle and joke at us. Very bubbly this lady! Too much bubble bath at the hotel maybe. As for Phil, he did a lot of the 'cool' & 'macho' poses. Well, I'd say one full year of discipline work-out at the gym really pays of!

Alright now, these are chips of their anniversary portraits together with Gevany's family. Cherio!!
