Keow Wee Loong, from Malaysia, set out to prove that it's possible to create stunning images without blowing your budget on a designer gown, after meeting a fellow photographer who claimed you couldn't get good wedding pictures without a fancy dress.ADVERTISEMENT/amp-ad">>
The 29-year-old immediately whisked his wife off to a shopping centre in Kuala Lumpur and the pair bought the two cheapest wedding dresses they could find - the bill came to the equivalent of just £15 ($20.80) in total.
Later that night they set off for Cameron Highlands - a mountainous area in Pahang state - arriving just in time to catch the sunrise.

He then set about capturing a series of breathtaking shots of his wife posing in the budget frocks, in a field, on a dirt track and even in the branches of a tree.
Keow said: 'You don't need an amazing high-end designer dress to have amazing high-end wedding photos.
'I was inspired to take up the challenge to show that great wedding photos can be captured even you have a very cheap dress.'
He added: 'Many couples spend thousands to get a good wedding dress but they spend less on a photographer. The photographer is the one that make the magic happen in the photo not the wedding dress.
'I wanted to tell the world that no matter how expensive the dress you are wearing is, if you don't get a good photographer, your entire wedding shoot will be ruined.
'If you have the cash by all means splash it if you want but if you have limited resources pick skill over material.'ADVERTISEMENT/amp-ad">>
A 2017 survey by global fashion search platform Lyst showed that the average UK bride spends around £832 on her wedding dress, down from £1,112 in 2016 - with Keow's budget gown costing less than 1 per cent of the average price.
