vanity is pain

December 3, 2012

here’s the second entry since my nice welcoming back to the land of sails and sheep more than two weeks ago.

one thing for sure… i got f at.

probably evident from the amount of food pictures i have been spamming on my instagram lol. What should i say, a perfect day has to have perfect food (and some days not so perfect but still yummy or edible lol),

i love them! but alex disagrees … he claimed they look dangerous~~~ boo

.

.

and last but not least,

we did our pre-wed photoshoot!

earlier i had many whatsapp conversations with our dear friend and photographer, vialli! She got me really excited and i had dreams about the photoshoot and used them to get through my last month of teaching for the year lol.

and when i had the chance to go KL for a weekend and stayed with Cindy, i was really focus to find ‘the dress’ or dresses for my shoot. I even thought about what accessories should i put on and so on, but thank God for Cindy, she stopped me.

Cindy suggested that i should let the pictures focus on Alex and I, not the embellishments, which totally makes sense.

So,

as the weather when i first got to Auckland was pretty cold and rainy, at the sight of one warmer and cloudy day through the forecast, we quickly arranged a very last minute appointment with Vialli for the very next day. Everything was so last-minute and urgent that we met for dinner on Sunday evening, discussed about what’s needed and what we should wear, and woke up 4am the next day to rush for the sunrise at Okahu Bay!!!!

IT WAS FREEZING!

and i had to reluctantly put down my cardi for most of the shots…hence the title of this blog entry.

oh well,

since our shoot is very minimalistic and casual, i had my qualms.

the fact that i did not even have falsies on, no hair done, and no professional make up plastered on the face, i was worried the pictures will turn out slightly disappointing…

but God bless Vialli,

She really has a nick with photo-taking and captured us in our best moments, and makes us look good in pictures!

    The food is worth getting fat over. You wont have that when you get back.
    Anyway, shoots were great! Kudos, Vialli! =)
