The best kinds of romantic experience are the ones that come unexpectedly because we believe in fate.
And it looks like the universe had plans to ruin this Pahang couple’s fateful day by breaking down their car amidst their journey to the beach for a wedding photoshoot, but in actuality, it is disguised as a blessing for the photographer to produce even more romantic photos.
Taking to Twitter to share the impromptu roadside wedding photos, photographer Apihazmi said he seized the opportunity to shoot the couple in wedding attire when their car broke down.
Apihazmi leveraged on the theme of the setting and shot the photos in sepia tone. In one photo, the groom held up the broken down car’s bonnet as he smiled to the camera with his bride.
It perfectly displayed the couple’s tenacity to stick together through thick and thin and face difficulties head-on with a smile.
In another photo, the couple posed slantingly to a damaged speed-limit sign while the groom held up a hitchhiking gesture beside his bride.
Again, their authentic smiles touched the viewers’ heart. The post was retweeted over 8,000 times and liked over 15,000 times since it was published last Thursday (Aug 15).
The photographer told online portal Kisah Dunia that the couple was heading to Pantai Air Leleh, Pekan for a wedding photoshoot before their car suddenly broke down.
“After the bersanding ceremony, we set off straight away for an outdoor photoshoot.
“On the way to the beach, as I followed them from behind in my car, they suddenly stopped at the side of the road. Their car’s temperature was heating up,” he related.
Since they were in a pickle, Apihazmi suggested the couple to make do with what they had and started using props around for some photos.
“I told them that since their car was stalled, it’s okay, we can still take a few photos while we’re here.
“As it turns out, there were some road signs nearby and I thought they would be good to visualise the story behind the couple’s wedding journey.”
He said many drivers honked and waved at the couple, cheering for them and thinking that the couple had intentionally stopped by the roadside for a photoshoot. None of the passersby actually stopped.
After getting some good shots, the couple moved on to the beach by hitching Apihazmi’s car. Still getting what they set out to do, they were just in time for more photos by the seaside.
Netizens are happy for the couple and praised the photographer for his quick and decisive thinking.
Aww! The photos are so cute!
