Following the mesmerising fireworks display that illuminated the night sky after Raymond's successful marriage proposal to Serena, there was more magic to capture on their special night. After allowing the couple some time to savour the moment over a delightful dinner, we embarked on an enchanting night couple photoshoot.

Raymond had a specific vision in mind for this night shoot. He wanted to revisit the places where they had shared beautiful memories and where their love story had blossomed. It was a meaningful journey down memory lane at the iconic Boat Quay promenade, where they had often spent cherished evenings together. The sentimental significance of the location made them the perfect backdrop for their night couple photoshoot.

Before we set out, I had cautioned Raymond about the intricacies of a high-end, professional night photoshoot. The elaborate setup required for the best results meant limited mobility. However, Raymond was resolute; he was committed to capturing their love story at these beloved locations, and I wholeheartedly embraced the challenge, even with the bulk of the necessary equipment. To ensure everything went smoothly, I had the invaluable assistance of my trusted photography assistant.

Raymond initially entertained the idea of including the imposing statue of Sir Stamford Raffles in their photoshoot. However, I knew that the statue's height posed a considerable challenge in achieving flattering lighting without an extensive setup. Raymond graciously accepted my professional advice and we continued our creative journey elsewhere.

Our night couple photoshoot commenced nearby and I was delighted with the early results. We then moved to a stone bench, a place where they had sat on days of their romance. Yet, as we ventured further, we encountered some challenges. The post-National Day Parade crowd was still bustling, as anticipated, and we had to carefully navigate tight angles to avoid including other people in our shots. This added a layer of complexity, as I needed to ensure that our frames focused solely on the couple, without making bystanders uncomfortable.

Having an assistant by my side proved to be invaluable. The creative input added depth to our photoshoot, allowing us to explore different backgrounds and experiment with unique ideas.

The final leg of our shoot took us to the restaurant where the couple had booked their banquet for the actual wedding day. This segment was particularly important, as it held sentimental value for them. Besides, I suggested they could use one of the photos on their wedding invitation card.

However, the restaurant's narrow pavement posed a significant challenge, with a constant flow of people passing by. I found myself skilfully navigating the tight space, occasionally leaning against railing overlooking the river to maintain the desired distance. One of Raymond's requests was to include the signage of the Asian Civilisations Museum atop the nearby building in our shots. While this added complexity to the shoot, it was important to him and I was determined to capture their love story exactly as they envisioned it.

As the shoot progressed, it extended well into the night. Given my early dinner and a light meal to avoid potential stomach discomfort during the shoot, I found myself quite famished. Little did I anticipate that missing the last train home would be part of our adventure. Despite my best efforts, I couldn't secure a Grabcar, leaving me with no choice but to embark on a long and arduous walk to Tanjong Pagar, lugging my heavy photography equipment. It was a challenging end to a night filled with both magic and unexpected twists.
