There was no official ceremony, Samsee says; instead, they wed at the religious office with only their parents present. As such, Samsee wasn’t able to capture the moment they were married and needed to wait until it was over in order to commemorate this occasion for them in photos. The couple had also skipped the rewang, a gathering of neighbors and relatives to help them prepare for their ceremony.

During the portrait shoot, Samsee wore a mask, abided by social distancing protocols and made sure to avoid crowded areas for the shoot. “Because of that, I needed to be creative to choose the right place, and this old factory came across as a photo shoot location,” he explains. It was a relatively quick shoot, which Samsee found somewhat strange. “It’s challenging to get my photography momentum back after four months,” he says, “but it’s a good experience and I’m thankful to be back even with this new norm phase.”
Photographed on a Nikon D750 and 50mm lens at f/2.2, 1/800 sec. and ISO 250.
