All About My Marriage Photography Passion

Choosing a wedding photographer in Singapore May 28, 2015

As a wedding photographer in Singapore, I know that there are some good and bad wedding photographers in Singapore. The bad ones are simply not skillful enough, not service-oriented enough, and/or not professional enough. I know that through my personal encounters with them, and also heard about them first-hand from clients. If you already engaged a wedding photographer for your wedding without doing much checks on him, it will be better to double check if he is good enough. A bad wedding photographer is not going to deliver quality wedding photographs to the wedding couples, and it will be a huge regret and costly mistake to make for the wedding couples.

So here’s how to choose a good wedding photographer in Singapore like http://www.grandeurweddingstudio.com/:

1. First, you got to consolidate a list of supposedly top wedding photographers in Singapore. You can do this by searching for wedding photographers in Singapore on search engines. Go through the list of results and finalize on at least 10 wedding photographers. You may want to get some referrals from your friends and families and include them in the list.

2. Do not compare their prices. Do you want a quality wedding photographer Singapore at a high price or want a so-so or bad wedding photographer at a low price? I’m sure wedding photographs are precious items to every couples, and hence quality will normally be the priority instead of the cost of the service. The not-so-good wedding photographers will try to push down their price to entice prospects. Do not be taken in by this tactic.

3. Meet up with the wedding photographers to find out more about their portfolio and service attitude. It is important to ask them face to face and check out their reactions to tell if they are speaking the truth instead of communicate to them via email. You will want to look through the wedding photographer Singapore’s wedding portfolio to find out whether the wedding photographs are skillfully taken. Moreover, see which wedding photographer Singapore you feel is the most honest and service-oriented, and also is most comfortable talking to.

Follow the 3 steps above to get yourself a good wedding photographer in Singapore.

Why I Love Wedding Cinematography March 18, 2015

For some of you who are not familiar with the term, it simply means an advanced technique of wedding videography. Wedding cinematography is not just about producing a normal video recording the events that took place for the wedding couples. It records the events that took place, and then transforms them into a Hollywood-grade movie by adding rich effects to the video.

It’s just a fancy name for a movie-grade wedding videography.

Whenever I watch a beautifully created wedding cinematic film, I begin to tear a bit. The combined effects of the cinematic experience and the lovely love story will touch the audience greatly. The emotions brought out by a cinematic film will always be greater than that of wedding photographs.

So how on earth do you get great wedding cinematography for your marriage ceremony in Singapore (I suppose you want your marriage memories to turn out great for years to come)?

First of all, you want to get someone or some bridal company in Singapore who takes quality wedding videos. Most outdoor wedding photographers in Singapore also provide videography services. (In case you didn’t know where to start looking for them) You also want to make sure that their style that suits you. This can be verified by looking at their portfolio. You will have to meet them up to check out their video portfolio. I doubt they will showcase their wedding video online. Prices are secondary if you truly want an amazing shoot. Great wedding videographers usually charge higher prices, but higher prices does not mean better quality all of the time (though most of the time it is the case). So, you want to go for the imagery quality first instead of judging on prices for wedding cinematography Singapore.

Secondly, you ideally want someone with prior experience and not a beginner to take your shoots. It’s not about the prices as well. This is because you can ‘give chance’ to an amateur photographer for your family shoot since that can be simply taken another time (it is only a matter of money). However, when it comes to wedding ceremonies, there are only one. You do not want your wedding video to be messed up by a newbie. This issue can again, be rectified by looking at the wedding videographers’ porfolio.

Actual Day Wedding Photoshoot in Singapore

If you are looking for a good actual day wedding photography Singapore, then you need to look for a photographer who fulfills the following criteria:

1) Able to communicate well with you suggestions to take better pictures as well as being able to refine and appropriately help you make your photo shoot ideas come to life. Communication is always the key in any projects.

2) Patience. A good wedding photographer will always be patient. He must be skillful enough to detect good photography opportunities arising and patiently wait for the perfect moment and angle to capture that wonderful picture. We cannot always capture good photographs immediately all the time. Only the good photographers will have the foresight of the good photography opportunities arising.

3) Has a customer service centric attitude. A good wedding photographer will always remember that the clients’ satisfaction is the utmost priority. He is delivering a service to the client. How does the wedding photographer make sure that the clients will be satisfied? Simply deliver quality wedding photographs that meet the clients’ expectations in a timely manner, and with a good customer service attitude and manners throughout the entire relationship.

4) Treats each customer as different and unique. Every customers’ requirements can be very different from one another. A good wedding photographer cannot offer the same wedding photography advice and suggestions such as with regards to the wedding locations and styles to every clients. There needs to be different solutions to meet every clients’ needs. This goes for pre wedding photography in Singapore as well as actual day wedding photography Singapore. Consult the clients what they ultimately wants to see in their wedding photographs. What they want the wedding photographs to be like, and work towards providing that to the clients. Just to note, it will be harder to meet the requirements of actual day wedding photography Singapore as compared to pre wedding photography Singapore as the environment in the actual day wedding itself is much more dynamic than the pre wedding photo shoot setting (which in fact is static and planned by the wedding photographers).

If you are looking for the best quality bridal photographers in Singapore, why not check out Grandeur Wedding Studio? In fact they meet all of the above expectations. I was actually writing with Grandeur Wedding Studio in mind because they took for my sister’s wedding and her bridal photos looked simply amazing!

If you truly want something magical like this, then you definitely need to find a good Singapore bridal studio because all of the above photos either need props or some really good post-photoshoot edits. A good wedding photography studio will have talented wedding photographers who are skillful enough to capture and edit the photographs to your liking. Moreover, the Singapore wedding photography studio will most likely have connections to other wedding-related companies too, such as the wedding attire and props rental studio offering the rental of wedding gowns, suits, and props for the wedding photo shoot.

Of course, the car one may not be as feasible but the Star Wars picture on the left with post editing and the Star Wars one in the middle with the Stormtrooper attire is definitely possible and can be arranged. The requirements and standards of a good wedding photographers are always getting higher. It’s normal. So do not be afraid to ask for the most daring requirements and if the wedding photographers are skillful and talented enough, they will always be able to meet your requirements.

Pre Wedding Photography Is Beautiful

In my opinion, pre wedding photographs are the cutest and most blissful type of wedding photography ever because the actual wedding day is usually too busy and the pre wedding is usually the most blissful time of the couple.

Sometimes you can even smell the love taste in the air.

I can’t say for the other couples, but I treasure my pre wedding photographs the most. I am a person who seldom take pictures of myself. Hence, pre wedding photographs are the only few photographs I have taken together with my wife. Even if someone frequently takes photographs with his wife, pre wedding photographs hold a special meaning and look much more beautiful than other photographs we take daily. Pre wedding photographs capture a time in life where the couples are young, looking good, and committed to each other. This is a special moment one can always look back on, to treasure these memories and emotions.

When it comes to your marriage photoshoot, you should not compromise, and you must definitely choose to get the best wedding photographers Singapore has to offer. If you are looking for a recommendation to a great professional photographer, then you might want to check out Grandeur Wedding… they take truly amazing wedding photographs.

Comprising of many experienced and talented wedding photographers in Singapore, they specialise in wedding photography and only takes in wedding photography jobs.

It is truly important to invest in your marriage by taking a pre wedding photo shoot. Just like how a baby can sustain a marriage and keep a couple together and reminiscing fond memories all the time – having a pre wedding photoshoot does too because you will look back on the fun times that you had during the session. Trust me, as a person who has been through it, having such a pre wedding photography album makes me really glad to have made that decision before I got married officially!

Are You Looking For A Pregnancy Photoshoot Instead? January 1, 2015

If you are, then you may want to get maternity photography Singapore session instead. Of course, some mums are worried sick what if they look ugly during such a photoshoot?

Do not worry and just take care of yourselves before the photo shoot and stay healthy and vibrant. The photographer will take care of the other things and make sure the photographs turn out beautiful. Mums will look beautiful if the professional photographer is good (a.k.a Larry) because he/she will know how to make the mum look vibrant and blissful instead of tired and grouchy. There are a lot of advanced photography tricks to enhance the beauty of photographs.

Though I am a wedding photographer who mainly specialise in wedding photography, I do take some time to take maternity photographs over the weekends too. Trust my photography skills. A good wedding photographer is supposedly able to take all kinds of other shots well as wedding photography is one of the hardest photography niche to be in. The wedding photographer needs to be both fast, and able to take the beautiful wedding photographs during the wedding event.

My Favorite Photography December 31, 2014

The essence of photography is the ability to capture the actual object down as real as possible for us to look back on. Sometimes, we can see something from the photographs that we are not able to see when we are right at the scene. This is because photographs capture the “moment” for us, and we can take our time to analyze and admire the photograph, which we may well missed out during the real occurrence. This is the magic of photography.

Every professional and amateur photographer will definitely have certain types of photography as their favorites, and among those for me, the hottest and absolute favorite are:

– wedding photography

– Maternity photography

– Baby photography

Because I feel that photography sessions during wedding photo shoots are usually the purest and because the couple are usually the deepest in love at that time. The couple is dizzy in love so it really shows happiness through the photographs taken during a marriage photo shoot. I am a positive person and thus would like to associate with happy things and events. Wedding photography is a really joyful job to me as I love to indulge in the blissful atmosphere of the wedding.

Maternity photography is also pretty cool as these maternity photo shoots offer the child an interesting perspective on life when he/she is old enough and looks back. Maternity photographs exudes a certain sense of maturity and quiet happiness from the mothers and I feel at peace with this feeling as well.

I guess I do not have to explain much with baby photography. Everyone loves babies. Baby photography is so cute because the babies are really adorable and innocent, they don’t know any good and evil, they are just pure. And it’s nice to see parents have much fun with their toddlers during such as photo shoot session as well.

Fun Photography – Pre Wedding And Family

In my opinion, there are 2 most fun types of photography, namely pre wedding photography as well as family photography.

Pre wedding photo shoots can be really fun, because in certain cases, the photographer (such as me) would be able to follow you and your spouse to any destination of your choice and take really fun wedding images for you! Sometimes, the place where we live – Singapore – can be boring, and so going to another country to take your romantic photo shoots can be a really fun idea!

After all, there are also less densely populated areas other than Singapore and so you would be able to take silly and fun images without others in the background. One important thing is that the couples are able to let free completely and indulge in the photo shoot without worrying that people they know will see them. Some people are really shy to take wedding photography in the public as they will feel embarrassed if their friends saw them doing it so going overseas can actually help to solve this… Most local gown rental companies in Singapore also allow you to bring their dresses overseas (just that you need to pay a premium but that is expected). It is also a chance for the couples and the wedding photographer to look around and explore overseas during the free time there after the wedding photo shoots. We can treat the overseas trip as a leisure, recreational trip too.

Moving to family photography, although there are many professional photographers who make out family portraits as being all formal, it can be really fun.

But most photographers also only think that ‘fun’ is just taking family photographs with some funny poses or holding some cute stuff or anything that’s still quite ‘safe’.

But family photography Singapore especially by Larry Lim (me :P) will be a ton of fun! I like ideas such as the following and I encourage my clients to take them up if possible:

It is much more memorable and makes the entire family photo shoot fun as well. Contact me at email: contactlarry@1pillsall.com
