Beers, Burgers and a Kua: Ser Siang and Sze Liang’s Engagement Shoot

Ser Siang and Sze Liang hit the streets of Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur with photographer Hellojanelee and went on a journey that would take them through back alleys, shop fronts, a McDonald’s, and ultimately back in the comforts of Sze Liang’s backyard.

How did you meet and what was the proposal like?
“We were introduced by a mutual friend during a wakeboarding outing two years ago. We actually have a lot of mutual friends, but for some reason we’d just never met. 

Ser Siang proposed to me in Hong Kong; he surprised me by asking all my friends to come along without my knowing. It happened on a boat, and there was lots of booze involved.” ~ Sze Liang  

What was the inspiration behind your traditional Kua shoot?
“I think the Kua is a very beautiful piece of clothing; its intricate details deserve to be captured. I have pretty traditional sensibilities – I've been wearing a jade bangle since I was 18.” ~ Sze Liang

Do you have any interesting moments or stories to share from the day of the shoot? 
“We really intended to shoot at a McDonald’s! We killed two birds with one stone – shooting and eating at the same time. (laughs)

For the Kua shoot, we were supposed to go to a park but I left my Kua at home so we decided to shoot in my backyard. It turned out well! I think.” ~ Sze Liang
