​A Couple's Destination Engagement Shoot in Bintan

The beautiful island of Bintan is getting more and more popular among couples who are opting for a destination pre-wedding shoot. While Pam and Larry are familiar with the beauty of this island since their early dating days, their photographer, Gwendolyn Choo, was taken aback by the hidden photogenic gems this island has. Instead of having their shoot in island resorts as the photographer initially imagined, they made their way to the sand dunes, violet hills and of course, the beach. The couple, who were going to enter their ninth year of relationship, lit up the otherwise gloomy grey sky in their nostalgic trip.

Although clad in formal attire, the two weren't afraid to go through exhausting climbs and walks, and Pam even happily dragged her wet dress through the sandy beach. During their trip to Bintan's iconic sand dunes, Pam even dressed herself in the Singaporean Kebaya that is also her stewardess uniform. Not wanting to waste the opportunity, Pam also changed into a magnificent white dress and let the skirt bounce along as the couple hikes up and down the dunes.

After showing off their sweet side in the previous shoot, Pam and Larry changed into what their photographer referred to as "mafia-mob style". In Violet Hills, they dressed stylishly in black before taking off Larry's bowtie and changing Pam's dress into an elegant red one. Even with the already-stunning changes of look and scenery, these two still continue to show a different angle to their relationship. This time, they gave off a serene and free-spirited nuance by walking the beach wrapped in loose and flowy fabrics. In yet another white dress that is not-less graceful, they also had the photoshoot among a picturesque view of pale brown dried leaves. To add a creative accent to the pictures, the couple had a bouquet of vibrant-colored flowers in each of the shot, carefully arranged by The Flower Practice.

The photographer admitted that this session was surely draining, but it was all compensated by the amazing pictures and fun culinary trip led by Baba from Baba Love Trip. "You could look at it as work, or a vacation so why not the latter? This trip felt like a school outing rather than work, beautiful photos may last but what keeps the memory indelible in our heart is the amount of fun time we spend together," reminisced Gwendolyn Choo.
