IPOH - Photos of a semi-naked couple, believed to be taking their pre-wedding photographs in front of a bank on Jalan Sultan Yussuf here have surfaced on social media.
The photographs depict the groom wearing a bow tie and black pants while the bride was in white undergarments and a wedding veil.
It is not known when the photographs of the brazen couple were taken but the photographs have surfaced online since Monday.
The couple also seemed undaunted by their action while being photographed by some members of the public passing by.
A wedding gallery general manager, who only wished to be known as Koo, said it was only a photo shoot and the couple were models.
Koo, who organised the photo shoot, said the photographers were merely exploring "creativity" and was surprised by the response triggered on social media.
He said he has considered the legal issues on the matter and was confident that it was not an offence.
"People are just over-reacting because they have never seen a bikini-clad woman on the streets before.
"It is their rights to complaint," said Koo, adding that he has been a professional photographer for more than 20 years.
"I chose the location because it suited the theme and concept," he added.
When contacted, Perak police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said the police have not received any reports but are probing on the matter.
