True friendship is hard to find, and harder yet to describe. Our friendship with Isaiah & Andrea runs bone deep, and well, they just happen to live over the other side of the world. But while we’re worlds apart we still feel so connected to them. They inspire with their love, generosity and kindness & while we were in San Francisco recently we got to make some special memories with them both – David & Shobana

One of our greatest privileges of what we do is getting to see how many different cultures celebrate our greatest form of the commitment of one to another. Christina and George although come from vastly different heritages, have found one another and share something so beautiful and tender together.

The story of their day is captured below, it includes many joyous moments they shared together with their families and friends, a beautiful Coptic ceremony, shipping yards and fireworks; but most importantly it’s a beautiful reflection of their depth of their heritage and the convictions they share about the nature of love.

Every year we make a trip to Malaysia, it holds a very special and significant place in our hearts. But this time felt like it was the most significant and life changing. Not just because of what we did while we were there, but because of the people we were able to meet. We shot our first Indian wedding, spent time with multiple communities and held our first workshop too!!

No one tells you how much work doing a workshop is, let alone doing your first one overseas. We braved our nerves and we can honestly say even though there was blood, sweat and even a couple of tears it was one of the best experience of our professional lives. Even greater was that it was a life impacting moment for those who attended too. These workshops were all about purpose. growth, support and contribution. And like anything when you go to give you often get so much back in return. We made life long friends, we all worked hard, laughed harder and ate a lot of good food. Its also so encouraging to see only a few months later how these brilliant photographers are growing in their business and there passion for photography. We came as individuals and left as a family.

The trip ended with a restful week of family time, Davids mum joined us a week before we headed home and as always Shobana’s Dad was with us the whole time. We really couldn’t have done the trip without him, many people ask us what do we do with Elijah while we’re working overseas and often he is spending time with him. To share our experiences in Malaysia with him is a real joy & blessing.

We return to Singapore & Malaysia to teach workshops in June & July next year. All the details can be found up here – www.athomeworkshops.com

I hope you enjoy but a glimpse of the four weeks we had to enjoy throughout Malaysia.

These two sweethearts had one of the most relaxed weddings we’ve seen to date. And they pulled off their effortless style with absolute brilliance too. It was so beautiful to share with them in celebrating with their family in downtown Sydney.

Arvind & Leenah flew out from Malaysia to see us here in Australia for their pre-wedding session a few months back. We had such a lovely time getting to know them both and got to make some really special portraits both at the same time :) They toughed out some pretty tough conditions too including a cold sunrise, tummy bugs and running up sand dunes in their beautiful clothes. We’re working on their wedding images as we type and we can’t wait to share them soon!
