Lost in Jerusalem – Secret Supper Dinner in Melbourne

My first ever collaboration with the talented team of Once Upon A Table for their Lost In Jerusalem secret dinner in Melbourne. It was such a fun and enjoyable collaboration, and I can tell you that there were A LOT of delicious food that night.

The secret home location for the secret supper dinner was the modern apartment of Ahmad and Jen in South Yarra. Ahmed is Palestinean and his father was born in Jerusalem which made them the perfect host for this event. Stylists Bridget and Aurora worked their magic to transform Ahmad and Jen’s modern 2 bed apartment into an exotic Jerusalem tea house and awesome feasting rooftop terrace. Below are some of the film photos that I took and you can head onto Once Upon A Table’s Blog for more photos.

I would like to thank Ahmed, Jen, Angie Ma, Vittoria Chiarilli, Sophie, Bridget and the rest of OUAT’s team, including Vitti’s young daughters for the awesome event and delicious food.

The Adriani Family

Christina and I acquainted when we both attended a food photography workshop, but we found out we actually had some mutual friends.

Her parents and sister were visiting Melbourne at the time so she asked if I could do a casual family portraits for them. She mentioned it’s a rare occasion that her whole families were at the same place at the same period of time, so I hope these photos captured those happy moments that hopefully someday they’ll treasure with nostalgia.

Wong Family

When I was asked by Kenneth if I’d be interested to photograph his family, I immediately responded yes. Kenneth is a friend I know way back to the uni days. He got married a few years ao and he and his wife were the first couple that I ever took engagement photograph for. These two lovebirds had been the starting point of my couple/wedding/engagement photography.

Despite being tired & jetlagged by a 1-hout red-eye flight from Kuala Lumpur, their parents and families still managed to keep happy and smiley faces throughout the photoshoot. This is something I truly admired.

Just as me with my photography, Kenneth has his own pet project of his own. He’s the co-founder of the website called Bolboland. If you ever need a bolster, now you know where you can find one here in Australia.
