Richard Rodwell & Cheryl Liew
When planning a wedding – to do justice to all the work and effort involved in its planning – a reliable and professional photographer is a must to capture the day. Kid Chan, his team of photographers and his wife Shirlyn make a formidable team! For anyone getting married – your day just flies by – having the luxury of spending time afterwards, catching up on the bits you missed should be part of the experience.

Memories fade with age, but pictures last a lifetime… thank you Kid and to all at the studio.

Jeslina Hashim & Dion Rais Vercoe

I guess that’s the magic of excellent photography! Love u Kid! Muah!

Melbourne’s Bride Testimonials

September 25, 2008 11:33 PM
Through the lens of Kid.. by Justine Oh
(Reproduce in entirety with permission from the Bride)

Last week, we had so much fun playing host to one of malaysia’s top photographers- Kid Chan (www.kidchanstudio.com). It also marked a very important milestone in our lives- our pre-wedding photoshoot! :)

The idea of taking pre-wedding photos in Australia is rather peculiar, dressing up like a bride before your wedding day is almost unheard of in Melbourne! However, being asian in a western world, I was rather proud to have adopted my asian roots and went along with this ‘tradition’. I must say it was one of the best decisions we’ve made so far as a couple :) It was an utterly fun experience, even for chang! and yes we’re only young once!

We were blessed in many ways during the whole process of the shoot, firstly we had our shoot over 2 days (thanks to the generosity of Kid and his crew-Voon) so we spent the first day out at the beautiful Yarra Valley and Tulip Farm in Silvan. Although we got kicked out from a winery, and barelyescaped the attack of an eagle in an open vineyard!.. everything else went perfectly well =P

The highlight of the day had to be the tulip farm! we actually got there when it was closed to the public, and had the whole farm to ourselves until sunset :D It was such a bonus that we didn’t get kicked out, let alone we got in for free! =P

As the sun went down, we started heading back towards Melbourne and by chance we drove past a house with a really huge cherry blossom tree. I thought to myself ‘that would’ve been an awesome backdrop, if only we had a little more sunlight’. To my amusement, Kid and Voon asked to stop the car so that they could attempt to have their final shot of the day. They really weren’t joking when they said they’ll “try their best” to get a shot out of this. So there we were, outside a stranger’s home taking night shots with a tree which we soon learnt from its owner to be a hundred years old! At that moment, I was really impressed by how hard the boys tried, they were literally rolling on the road, snapping away with flash lights and at one point I even thought Kid was going to be hit by a car! Hehe, if this isn’t true passion for what they do, then I don’t know what is! When I saw how the photos turned out, I was in absolute awe as it was exactly how I’d imagine it to be.

Our second day was spent taking iconic photos in the city of Melbourne. So yes, we did the Parliament building, Pelligrini!, Degraves Lane, St.Patrick’s cathedral, yadda yadda.. and i reckon the best shot we had was on the city circle tram!

The tram driver actually stopped for 5 mins and we jumped onboard to take more photos with very amused passengers! I must admit, I was a VERY shy going around the city in my wedding gown, it was such an attention magnet.. gawd! everyone stared, smiled and congratulated us- I felt very uncomfortable at one point- thank god i didn’t bump into any of my work colleagues despite being in work teritory! hehe :P However, after awhile I kinda got used to the idea that- yes I am very much a bride to be! It gave me a taste of how our wedding day would be, hence why people in malaysia call this the “Pre-wedding shoot”! The experience is amazing.

We also went down to the Brighton Beach boxes, shortly after it started to rain so we headed home only to find that we were just in time for a sunset shot at our apartment terrace :)Everything happened with great timing and reason and we were truly blessed with every photo opportunity! We can’t wait until we see the photos, I think we took about a gazillion photos lol! Chang and I are now officially UN-camera shy :)

In summary, there are good photographers and then there are great photographers. All I can say is that if you’re after a super great one for your wedding, you’ll find wonderful photos captured through the lens of Kid! It’s a pity he’s unavailable to do our actual weddings but its a blessing enough to have our pre-wedding shots done by such great talent and that we’ve made new friendship along the way :)

p/s: Yes I did get a second gown for the shoot, THE main gown still remains a mystery to Chang keke :P and SADLY, my new Alan Pinkus ivory bridal shoe is WRECKED from the tulip farm =(
