Majlis pertunangan Nurshahirah dan Hafiz



Breeze skipping over water,
Water reflecting lights strung over the bridge,
Lights shining in your eyes.

The fresh, bold feeling of something new,
As winter melts into liquid spring,
And summer takes shape and ripens alongside love.

The petals from the flowering trees, snow for the summer,
Floating down around us as we kiss,
Once, twice, then forever.

You aren’t just my sunshine.

You’re my sun.

10 reasons, why photographers are expensive

Lets start here, you’re not just paying for the actual photograph ; you’re paying for time, gear and expertise.



Most of the people having this question in mind, think that it’s just about spending few hours & pressing few buttons. But that’s far from the reality. The work which you see as a 2 hour assignment, is stretched far beyond that. Let’s breakdown factor involved which makes professional photography expensive.

1. Time
You might see it as a 2 hour assignment. But what you may ignore is the Travelling time to reach the location, the set up time, time spent talking to the clients at venue, time spent in negotiations before the shoot, the actual shoot, transferring and backing up the data, post processing, reviewing with clients,  delivering the photos or scheduling a pick up. And we are not even going into time spent building relationship with client, marketing and office hours. Post processing itself may take over a day or many depending upon the number of photographs. Especially in case of wedding Photographers.


2. Gear
Professional photographers don’t compromise with the quality of their gear. They buy professional equipment. They spend thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars getting multiple camera bodies, the finest lenses, flash equipment for every situation, tripods, light stands, backdrops, props, carrying and storage cases. Not only this, they buy professional licenses for software and different cloud back-up storage solutions and many other things.

3. Premium Services
Pro Photographers join communities to further learn and explore new dimensions. They have to pay for their membership to different premium photography communities. They pay for a premium account on photography services like Flickr, 500px and others. They pay for maintenance of website. They even need consultation with lawyer sometimes. Premium services may also include office and studio rent, electricity and phone bills etc.

4. Skills
Apart from being a good photographer, they have to be CEO, marketing manager, financial manager, salesperson,  production worker, buyer, negotiator, driver, networker, organizer etc. That’s the kind of skill-set of Professional Photographer.


5. Compromise
Professional Photographers don’t compromise. They will give you the best they can. They don’t back off from tough assignments. They would travel to any possible location and will shoot to the best of their ability. They give you their valuable time. They don’t run for multiple assignments within a day. They would rather do one quality assignment.


6. Technology
Pro Photographers keep themselves and their gears up to date with the rapidly evolving technology.They find things that perfectly match their clients taste. Their equipment are not of a hobbyist. They will be using the best technology available.


7. Experience
Experience is the one thing that may beat everything. And the Professionals are vastly experienced. They can advice you over a number of thing which you would not be able to decide. They know whats right and what could go wrong.


8. Uniqueness & Quality
Professionals have their unique style yet every shoot will look different. They know how to infuse freshness. The quality of photos are supreme.


9. Returns
The truth is that you get what you pay for. You will get photographs worth the money involved. And you know that there are no second chances.


10. Assistants and Help
They may have a small team working with them either on location or back in studio. The Photographer pays them for their work from his income.

So next time if you think a Photographer is charging more, do consider the above points.

Raikan Cinta Sofea dan Sham

Pelabuhan Cinta
wahai ENGKAU sang pemilik cinta
jatuh dan tenggelamkan aku dalam cintaMU
hingga tak ada seorangpun dari aku yang mampu mengusik kekhusukanku
guna meraih kasih dan sayangMU
duhai ENGKAU sang pemilik rasa
sibukanlah aku dalam rindu akan hadirMU
sehingga diri ini senantiasa berdandan dengan tahmid dan tasbihMU
guna menggapai pertemuan yang sangat indah denganMU,
ya Robbana,,
sesungguhnya cinta ini adalah cintaMU
rindu ini adalah rinduMU
maka ijinkan aku untuk melabuhkan segala rasaku hanya kepadaMU
karena hanya ENGKAU yang patut memilikinya
ya Rohman,,ya Rakhim
dengan kasih dan sayang yang KAU miliki
aku mohon jagalah rasa dalam jiwaku
agar tak pernah berpaling dariMU

Bagaimana memilih jurugambar perkahwinan anda?

1. Fahami kehendak “end product” anda. Bagaimana hasil gambar yang anda inginkan adalah penting kerana setiap hasil seni jurugambar adalah berlainan. Anda dinasihatkan supaya ‘browse’ cara fotografi yang anda minat secara online mahupun konvensional.

2. Senaraikan jurufoto yang telah anda ‘browse’ mengikut kehendak dan ‘recommendation'(bakal suami, rakan-rakan, keluarga) anda dan bandingkan pilihan tersebut.

3. Setelah anda melakukan senarai akhir, aturkan temu janji atau berhubung secara terus dengan jurufoto tersebut tidak mengira melalui telefon, email, skype, whatsapp atau pun media sosial.

4. Berhubung dengan lebih dari 1 jurufoto untuk perbandingan harga dan material yang terbaik.

5. Sekiranya jurufoto tersebut memerlukan temujanji,anda hendaklah mengaturkannya kerana kebiasaanya jurufoto professional tidak akan menyatakan harga perkhidmatan mereka di dalam laman sesawang. Ada juga jurufoto professional yang meletakkan harga asas semata-mata untuk pelanggan membuat pilihan.

6. Berikan butiran penting seperti;- (Tarikh Akad Nikah, Tarikh Sanding, Tempat Majlis Sanding Pihak Perempuan/Lelaki, Bajet, Pakej Yang Diinginkan) untuk memudahkan jurufoto tersebut menyemak jadual mereka.

7. Kebiasaanya Jurufoto akan mengeluarkan harga pakej berdasarkan maklumat yang diberi oleh anda.

8. Semak kembali apa yang jurufoto tersebut tawarkan di dalam pakej mereka.

9. Buat pilihan berdasarkan bajet dan pakej yang disediakan.

10. Bayar deposit secepat mungkin setelah anda bersetuju dengan pakej tersebut mengikut kadar yang dipersetujui bersama. Kebanyakkan jufurufoto menggunakan terma “siapa cepat dia dapat”.

11. Jika anda memilih jurufoto professional untuk merakam kenangan indah anda, InsyAllah mereka akan buat lebih dari apa yang anda sangka!

Semoga tips yang diberikan mendapat manfaat bersama. Tahniah kepada bakal pengantin.

Yati Love Awang

Dreaming a life without love
Is not possible for me to do
Nothing is really possible without love
I am in extreme grief, even then only love I desire to be in
I desire love in my life with all my feelings
Feelings grow in my heart
To deeply create a beautiful bond with someone
Someone, who would be the flower of my wounded heart.
Heart of mine, wants you till my end
End of mine, cannot be without you
As we will live and even fade away together
Dreaming a life without love cannot be.

Zul Love Shida

Here we are still going strong
Who would’ve thought we’d make this far
We’re still climbing and nothing can go wrong
This fate of ours was written in the stars

I can’t help but think you’re a fallen angel
And I’ve fallen for you
An angel in disguise so divine and true

I love who I am when I’m with you
I get lost in your eyes
And I can’t pull away even if I tried
The best feeling is that you love me too

My favorite song is the beat of your heart
It’s amazing how you had me from the start

Don’t think we’re stopping here at eight
You gotta believe now that it may be fate
There’s no more need to wait
Hands fit so perfectly for the perfect soul mate

Our time is blessed and our love is timeless
