As I write this, Ilona Lee is away on assignment to promote Uncover. I never used to be away from her. When I am away, I miss her. When she’s away, I miss her. No win win situation. She keep calling me that I am her big baby. We’re never apart from each other more than 2 weeks. People easily can spot me as a tough or difficult person to deal with because I am always thrive for perfection. But when I think about it, I can be very different person when I am around her. I guess that’s right what this quote says “You’ve seen me at the worst, yet you love me the best”. That’s a perfect way to describe about relationship.
But this post is not about me and Ilona. This is about Brian and Carla.
I met Brian exactly 3 years this month. I got to admit that when I see Brian, I can see a lot of resemblance of me. He could be my best student since having many disciples since 2008. He absorbs everything I know about videography and photography like sponge. And the cool thing is that he knows how to make it as his own. That’s what I think the best attribute of what I wish for my team to have. Like me, he’s always hungry to learn.
But the significant moments about their relationship is to realize that he will tie the knot in the next 2-3 weeks. It brings me a lot of memories of how I started my marriage with Ilona 15 years ago.
Ilona and I were fortunate to shoot their prewedding in Melbourne. During the trip, I could witness the different of Brian. Over the 3 years of knowing him, he could be easily recognized as the immature one even though he's the oldest in the team. He’s the clown in the group. But this trip, I could see the mature and responsible Brian. He's super cool. It’s funny to know Carla looked like so dependant to Brian but I know that she’s a very independent girl. So I guess that’s what we call love, they bring the best of each other and have good fun all the time.
Congratulations to both of you. I wish nothing but all the best for your marriage and career ahead of you :D.
