Always Be Courting (A.B.C)

“Always Be Courting (A.B.C) Dating your spouse”
Like many many men after marriage, I used to think that by just having dinners and going out with my wife meant I was already spending “Quality” time with her. *I was quality WRONG!* Its the ultimate misconception, I realised that it doesn’t work that way. I have confused Quantity time with Quality time.
The early years of marriage was an uphill journey of lessons….and more lessons (For both of us). And living in a world of Instant gratification didn’t help, we wanted things Now!, Fast!, done Yesterday. We’d take short cuts and have the “can pass can already” mentality. So much so that we applied it to every inch of our everyday lives. When they said Marriage is hard work, they weren’t kidding! *whoever “they” may be* But this hard work pays off in the long run.
For me, the early early stages of married life, the phrase “why is marriage be so hard/difficult?!” came to my mind almost every other passing day. Many arguments and disagreements, the struggle was real, But heres the Good news, it CAN get better! We just needed to put in some “hard work” into it. Our dates became real quality time spent. We learnt to have better conversations. The DELIBERATE effort to NOT use the handphone when we’re out together (During meals PUT THAT phone down, in all honesty I know no one really cares about what I’m eating or how it looks like). Don’t take each other for granted (Appreciation and affirmation helps ‪#‎justsaying‬)
It all starts with taking baby steps, initially awkward and uncomfortable. Slowly but surely it gets easier and better.
The reason for this post is well…not just a reminder to myself. I wanted to encourage couples out there who feel that you’re struggling through marriage life. Thinking you’re alone and no one understands what you’re going through. You can turn the situation around. Start simple, Date your spouse again, date them regularly, making them your priority.
Great images is a lot like marriage life, it takes time and effort too. Get creative and get going! ‪#‎plushphotography‬

Holding You Close

A few days ago, I bumped into one of my wedding couples, it was really nice to see them again. While doing some hard disk backup migration I chanced upon the shoot that I did with them in Perth.
Going through photos from the past sparked off so many questions in me. Like, would I had done this better? Would I have shot this angle or watched out for these shadows? It made me realize that, I’ve become more technical with my work. Itty bitty things that wouldn’t have bothered me in the past are now the things that bug me.
Then you start to question yourself if you’ve improved or if you’ve taken a few steps back. I concluded that at end of the day, we just have to move forward and be always learning.
