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.

Nerdy Photoshoot For Weddings January 2, 2015

If you and your spouse are more nerdy or geeky, you may opt for some interesting science fiction style weddings as some of the following people have!

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. The only issue is the price. The more and harder the requirements, the more costly the wedding photography services will going to be.

Fun Photography – Pre Wedding And Family December 31, 2014

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
