A day of photography lesson at Thean Hou temple.

I was honored to be part of their registration of marriage (ROM) recently.

I walked into the temple at 3pm with much of excitable feeling, saw many of newly wed couple walk around with beaming smiles. From the very first time, I took this opportunity to become photographer cum ex-colleagues of their ROM.

I met both of them at my first job 5 years ago.  A month ago, I received their call to attend their ROM, at the same time asking for a favor to take their pictures. They know that I’m doing photo shoots occasionally in my recent trip.

Their ROM was attended by her family member’s and friends. It’s a standard procedure to recognize them legally as a couple even though their actual wedding day will be 3 months later.
