How did you meet and what was the proposal like?
“We met at a sneaker shop 11 years ago. I was 16-years-old and Laura was 17 then. *laughs*

The proposal was not anything dramatic. It was more of an intimate affair with our close friends and the magnificent view at Clifford Pier. I proposed on her birthday and I gathered all our close friends at Fullerton Bay Hotel with the idea of celebrating together. As we finished singing the birthday song, I knelt down on one knee with the ring in both hands and popped the question.” ~ Amos

What was the inspiration behind your shoot?
“We never really planned any theme or discussed the direction before the shoot. We just went with the flow. It was quite relaxing and smooth as the chemistry was there.

For the outfits, we decided to wear the traditional kuas to add to our dresses and suits. Laura and I are similar in a way that we are modern yet a part of us is still very traditional. We love the juxtaposition of our gold Superstar sneakers with our red traditional kuas.” ~ Amos

Do you have any interesting moments or stories to share from the day of shooting?
“We caused quite a stir when we walked on the streets in our traditional kua costumes. People who walked past started to take out their handphones and snapped pictures straightaway. Imagine walking around in the costumes with stares, weird smiles and strangers coming up to congratulate you. Those moments were quite memorable for us.

Also, we were fortunate to have an awesome team. We are impressed by the passion and dedication the team shared to make the shoot better.” ~ Amos
