Alice and Rayner's Surprise Proposal

Much Mates

Rayner was a long time bandmate, roommate and schoolmate


We first met up in Singapore, which eventually went to form into "Sector 5", a cover band that plays noticeably TOKIO, Remioromen レミオロメン and similar generation of songs

Roommate & Schoolmate

Years past and Rayner proposed an idea to me that since we are pro-Japan, why don't we study music in Japan (Kobe) together?

We shared a room together in Kobe and began our music education, Japanese language school @ Interculture Language Academy in the mornings, and music lessons @ Koyo School of Music & Dance (then Koyo Conservatory) for the rest of the day

Surprise Proposal

Rayner approached me during my trip in Hokkaido (Hokkaido 2023), and planned for his surprise proposal to Alice

Shoot Setup

This is kind of my "first" official event for the M10 after my camera ecosystem swap from Canon. Not only that, it has been awhile since I have had any photos shoots for the past few years


Leica M10
Summicron-M 1:2/28 ASPH.
Summilux-M 1:1.4/50 ASPH.

DJI Osmo Pocket 3

Natural Lighting

Usually I would bring the usual umbrellas and what not, I have decided to keep it simple this time as Marina Barrage can get pretty windy. Let alone I do not have an assistant to help out

Marina Barrage

We were both worried on the weather conditions as Singapore tend to rain randomly during December

Prior to the shoot while preparing gear, it rained! Fortunately, the rain let up and it became cloudy

Overall it was really windy and both subjects had a difficult time keeping their hair in place rather than posing

Raffles Hotel

After our dinner, we headed to Long Bar situated in Raffles Hotel to chill out with a Singapore Sling and managed to find a few more shot worthy locations. Thank you Vicky and the Christmas season


🎉 Congratulations Alice and Rayner! 🌟

What an absolute joy it is to be the "0th" person to know about the engagement!

Wishing both of you a lifetime filled with laughter, adventures, and all the happiness in the world
