Here are some of the shots from my ROM(Registration Of Marriage) shoot of Derek and Susan on the 16th of April 2008. I seldom do event shoots but I did this anyway. Susan is my former colleague from a couple of years ago and my first tfcd model. She looks absolutely radiant and I am glad that I was able to cover this event. Lens used are the Nikon 16-85mm F3.5-5.6 AFS VR, the Nikon 50mm F1.4 and the Nikon 85mm F1.8. The ROM room was very small and cramped but what a day! What can I say? These pictures say more than I could ever hope to write in this blog entry. What a beautiful couple and what wonderful friends and family they have indeed. Congratulations to this lovely couple!

It may come as a surprise that I do not have any real walk around lens except the cheapo Sigma 18-50mm F3.5-5.6 lens that is a bit short of range for most event shoots in my opinion. I usually borrow the Nikon 18-70mm F3.5-4.5 kit lens from a fellow colleague to cover such photography when the need arise. After a couple of event photography that I got requested to do, and to stop inconveniencing my rather generous colleague further, I bit the bullet and decided to splurge on a Nikon 16-85mm F3.5-5.6 AFS VR lens! That is, not after sacrificing my Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 by selling it away to fund that purchase. The Tamron was a wonderful lens to have, but I decided to trade it off for the flexibility of the Nikon, since I have enough Prime Lens to cover my mostly portraiture shots taken with that lens. Stay tuned for my amatuer test run with the Nikon 16-85mm lens in awhile. In the meantime, enjoy some of my recent shots taken a few hours ago with my evergreen Nikon 35mm F2 and 85mm F1.8 lens! Kudos to these fine young ladies who remind me of the term Sugar and Spice. They carried on with the shoot inspite of a creepy stalker spying on us from both near and afar! That creep actually had the audacity to lie himself flat and belly down on the ground while spying on us from behind a nearby wall! I did not know whether to kick that creepy stalker or laugh out loud at his absurd behaviour! The strange things that people do. When they see Sugar and Spice. And all things Nice. Haha!
