Celebrating Marcus + Amanda
A tick off my wish list! Dakota Crescent is one of the places that I wish to shoot at, simply because that place has its old charm and is a world away from the hustle and bustle of urban Singapore. The now abandoned units with little occupancy left and quiet surroundings almost makes me feel like time travelling back to the past, back to my school days when a few of my classmates stayed there and we would hang around playing. Visiting Dakota Crescent again is down the memory lane.
And all thanks to the lovely couple Amanda and Marcus. With a vintage theme in mind, I proposed to them Dakota Crescent will be the perfect place for their shoot. Peaceful neighbourhood with a dove-shaped playground nestled in the heart of the estate, the couple concurred with the idea which I felt was fabulous! Doves perfectly symbolizes love and romance, and shooting a pre-wedding photography at the dove-shaped playground can’t be anymore befitting. We were so looking forward to the shoot.
Squeals of joy erupted from the old dove playground as we begun our shoot, Amanda and Marcus couldn’t contain their laughters. We were behaving like children again, throwing any stress that we might have to the back of our minds, we let loosed and enjoyed ourselves. I have to say, this shoot is probably one of the easiest that I’ve shot so far.
Time really flies, as the sky remained warmly lit by the sun trying to prise the last of its amber rays over the rooftops, we gathered ourselves to the playground again to end our fleeting but fantastic shoot. Dakota Crescent is artlessly a marvelous place to do a pre-wedding shoot, however, the scene is bittersweet as it is slated for redevelopment by the end of 2016.
