We’re delighted to share Alvin and Stella’s real, simple and beautiful at-home Singapore engagement session in and around their BTO HDB flat in Choa Chu Kang. These authentic photos, shot by The Beautiful Moment Photography, capture the couple’s romance in everyday situations in the comfort of their home (because where else do you feel more secure and safe than snuggled up with your love in bed) and made unique use of spaces such as common corridors and void decks.
Please tell us more about your proposal and pre-wedding photo shoot!
“Alvin and I met through mutual friends. Fast forward 6 years, and he proposed to me at Marina iLight Festival. He secretly gathered some of our friends and tried to orchestrate a surprise. The funny thing was, under the stress of multitasking (coordinating locations with our friends and pretending to be absorbed in viewing the installations with me), the timing got messed up and our friends couldn’t find us. In an attempt to bide for time, he volunteered to take some pictures for me underneath the Northern Lights installation. 5 minutes in, he was still trying to take my picture, citing camera fault, not enough light, people walking into the frame etc. I was still happily oblivious - posing for the picture until one of our friends jumped into the shot and handed him the flowers.
Alvin and I tried to conceptualize the shoot around our normal routines and activities. We were not really sure how exactly it was going to be done but we knew that we did not want any generic by-the-beach or at-the-lone-tree shots. Joshua, our photographer, came along and suggested to have the shoot at our own humble abode and around our neighbourhood, and we were immediately hooked by the idea. We then also decided to have a couple of shots at our favourite coffee shop - no doubt coupled with many curious stares. We loved how the photos turned out - equal parts gorgeous and intimate and really a true representation of who we really are as a couple.” ~ Stella
