Oh i know which pix u think look fierce.. Wanted to re-enact tt kind of theme like in Old Shanghai? Heehee.. I also didn't know whether to smile anot.. I also like the ID pix where the rose petals are showered
Yeah, your last photo really nice. Really nice...I felt the LOVE by just looking at the pic.
I am now thinking where to take photo...my church is a sure, guess location 1 will be Fort Canning....BTW my FH & I are very bored ppl...we just go for norm location....for Sentosa etc maybe our "health" cannot take it...too stressful...heehee...
The CS was done by a seamstress. My material cost me $15 (polyester Shangtung silk) & the workmanship inc of lining tt's provided is $100. Very worth the money.. She also gave me some allowance to alter in future, in the event I put on some weight.. heehee
Thanks for the compliments
You felt the love ah? Hahah, I think we too when doing tt shot! It's really romantic eh? I think it was the 1st for the photographer of tt BS..
YY, u prefer building or nature shots? I can recommend too! hahah.. I love to dish out advice, esp since I can't exhaust all my ideas in my wedding, can shareshare with other BTBs too.. Then u can be less stressed too!
My locations are as stated on the 1st thread at the top of the page, dated 1 Aug at 4.22pm.
Hmm, the 1st few are at Botanical Gardens. Within tt location, I went to 3 sublocations: Bandstand, Ginger Garden & Gazebo by the Swan lake..
I think by the time you finish your ID shoot, it wld be abt 3 - 4pm, so the sun shdn't be too harsh on your eyes? U might want to head to building locations in this case?
If u check out Gooobergrape's links, u wld see she went Supreme Court & some unique locations in Sentosa. I think Changi is beautiful too, esp with the boardwalk, it's really romantic in the evenings. Surprisingly it has a beautiful sunset view..
I've also seen a great shot beneath the roads along Esplanade.
What I suggest u can do is to surf local photographer's websites & get some ideas fr them? I did just tt, like going thru a buffet & picking according to my preferences
I def took all my OD shots on the same day.. Brought along the outfits to the different locations. Yvonne Creative had an assistant to help me with the gowns & accessories. Quite impt, if not u wld feel rather clumsy when trying not to dirty the gown as you change out..
At most locations, I had at most 1 other outfit with the assistant, the remaining were in the vehicle..
I think why for most OD pix the couple wld wear only 1-2 outfits is prob due to the fact tt they did do other outfits during the ID PS? Also it seems rather cumbersome & trying to change when in OD locations, so gotta select the OD locations wisely.
My 1st stop was the museum, so the toilet was superbly clean for me to change out of my WG into the purple CS for PS be taken at a nearby location which is indoors. Again tt location was very clean to change into my fusion-gold CS. The only tricky location was at Botanical gardens. I used the toilet meant for the handicap to change into my OD WG.. heehee, afterwhich the last stop was The Scarlet Hotel, tt was easy.. Coz I booked a room, so I changed in the loo.. hahah
I love my WG alot.. If I cld wear it to many locations w/o the fear of damaging it, i sure wld!
have u gotten a BS oredi? If u haven't maybe u can ask if they provide the service of an assistant for the PS & make sure they write on the invoice. My sis used EB & sure had to DIY alot.. What kind of poor service man..
I have not gone for my PS yet but I'm interested in doing it at the locations that u went to. Can I have a look at ur pics to see how it turn out like ? My email is [email protected] . Thanks!
which museum did you go too that had clean toilets? Did you have to pay to use there? I am cracking my head to find some place clean in case I have to go while OD or if I want to change gown. My PS is in mid sept and have not finalise where to go yet... Thanks!
Carelinwen: Great to meet u in this thread too! Thru the sis-in-Chirst thread, i never sent u the link to my pix? Maybe u came in later, so i sent to the earlier ones..
I went Asian Civilisation Museum. Actually all museums have clean toilets, unless u meet with a school group? No charges incurred, just gotta write in for permission. Don't get too worried abt the changing, esp since ur BS is Silhouette, even if it's dirty, they wld provide the dry cleaning for you yah?
U can consider ur banquet venue, Hyatt, if it has great ambience. Do shots with u & ur FH at the lounge, Grand piano, curved long stairs.. I love those mood shots!
Glad u liked them! Thanks for the compliments too!! heehee
I have rather sensitive skin so those beach & greenery shots would be out of the question. For fear i get itchy & fed-up, my FH & photographer wld kena fr me! hahah, no lah.. I can control myself here..
If i cld choose a more nature-based location, wld have headed to Changi Boardwalk & this location in Sentosa (not the tree, bench, swing or Siloso beach). U know the now defunct Asian Village? A lovely place tt's really quiet..
Those short gowns are tailored by a seamstress, not fr Yvonne Creative. One was made for this year's CNY & another is my tea dress. Wanted sthg out of the norm!
my PS photographer just drove me and FH to changi boardwalk for a recce trip last sat. may decide to go there during sunset. I told him about the asian village and he said he will go there recce by himself. but will only choose to go either of these 2 places, the rest will be old churches and colonial buildings. may go labrador if there is time as it is on the way to either sentosa or to the ECP(changi).
I agree that the swing, beach and tree pics of sentosa are so so common.
Which photographer who's tied up with Silhouette did u engage? I think the service is so wonderful tt he wld go check out ur choices. Asian Village is very beautiful.. Love the bamboo plants setting against the cool grey brick walls.
Seems like u pretty much like buildings too.. Think St Theresa's, SAM, VCH & Cityhall's Supreme Court shd be what you're looking for. Check out Chris Ling's website to see what I mean.
What part of Labrador u intend to go to? I wld say if it's the beach setting, Changi Boardwalk shd suffice..
I am using an commercial photog Andy Loh who used to be under Wizards of Light. He is now doing his own but still using WoL's premises. He's very nice, even picked us up at doorstep and sent me back... I chose him cos his indoor studio shots are good as the facilities and equipment are of commerical photography standard.
Ya, am going Fullerton and Victoria, I'm skipping St Teresa cos my HM is there mah, can take during AD. No not going Labrador beach, the greenery area.
I love this SB forum.. So informative & made many gd frens thru the various threads. It's also rather heartening to have many ppl rem my AD & congratulating me.. Dun worry, getting enough sleep these few days coz I'm taking leave tm, today's a sch holiday for me.. Can catch up on some beauty sleep here.. hahah
I shortlisted by style, budget & availability on tt date. If ur AD is an auspicious date, it is possible tt they might be booked a year in advance, similar to the case of a banquet venue.
Hmm, i felt tt if they showed enough portfolio online tt spoke to me, i wld then call & make an appt to meet up to view more portfolio & discuss in detail
But in my case, I called a few either i wasn't too pleased tt they wld charge $200-$300 for my split day affair or tt they didn't meet my budget. So the only PG & VG I met were Big Day Studio
I wld highly suggest to meet a few, instead of just firming up over email or phone. Coz u want to know their level of professionalism, based on punctuality, service & of coz end products (albums/collages/coffee table albums) they are going to provide
Surf ard, shortlist, enquire on brides who have used/ are using them on their styles, level of satisfaction etc.. I'm sure u wld be able to find ur ideal PG & VG
Do u rem when I sent u the link to my PS pix, there was another link to track my wedding preps? Go re-visit tt website yah? Got a lot of my AD events & feelings..
Hmm, now tt the Big Day's over, I'm actually feeling very nostalgic abt the whole wedding & the immense preps I put in. I was very hands-on & enjoyed every bit of the preps, inspite some ppl saying tt it's too much work.. I figure I won't say I'm very free, coz I was sort of off-loaded before the big day, so i got to resume my workload
Sure, i will visit this particular thread to help u gers, provided u gers are able to locate this thread
It's my pleasure to help, coz I get to build up my portfolio as a wedding planner in future.
anyone has suggestions or feedback that it is advisable to use photography services and bridal shop services in selecting the gowns separately? In-house photographer skills may not be as good as those who have a shop of their own? Any recommendations?
klping: go for dedicated services, bridal boutique that does only gowns and photographers that they tie-in with or source some where else... one thing that many of my friends didn't like about bridal studios with inhouse photographer is they'll find ways and means to squeeze more $$$ out of u..like make u buy extra albums.
those packages with photography might look quite cheap at first, but if u put in all the extra this and that, might as well get a boutique that u like, a photographer that u like separately.
