This Photographer Shot His Own Wedding Photo in 11 Countries


After Malaysian photographer Keow Wee Loong and his fiancée Marta got married recently, they embarked on an epic adventure: Keow decided to shoot his own wedding photo in 11 countries around the world.

Countries the couple visited over the 3 month journey include Norway, Indonesia, Japan, Italy, England, Austria, Germany, Poland, Malaysia, Sweden, and Denmark. The couple says they spent less than $1,100 on the project.

“The tricky part is carrying all the heavy gear and wedding dress, and doing your own makeup at the top of a mountain in freezing temperatures,” Keow says.

At each location, Keow set up a tripod with his Nikon D800E DSLR, a Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art lens, an ONSMO X1-Pro portable strobe, and a wireless remote.

Here are the “first kiss” wedding photos they shot around the world (they were retouched by Marta, who’s a visual artist):

Westminister Bridge , London, UK.
Angelholm, Sweden
Warsaw, Poland
Mount Tabur, Malaysia
