    Hi smallworld

    To be frank..Sdyney is only a city like Singapore... unless u take a long ride out to the country side, if not nothing interesting except for Opera house and blue mountain..

    As for Perth, it's the nearest to Singapore and it depend on when u go.. Sept or Oct will be a good time to go Perth.. very cooling.. lots of wild flowers..and lot's of beautiful beaches..

    Melbourne is more expensive when compared to the rest but it does have lots of nice places..

    Hi Brides-to-be,

    I am getting married in Oct 2008 and is also looking at pre-wedding photoshoots. Not sure if you are having the same headache as me! I am considering doing it outside Singapore for more fun and interesting scene. But a lot of such packages from teh reputable SIN photographers I like are way above my budget! I wish I can stratch my budget!

    I have found a WPJA photographer outside Singapore and is checking with him on his availability.

    For anyone who is keen to take pre-wedding shoot out of Singapore in end Jul 2008, pls contact me.

    Let's plan the trip together to get the economies of scales and also hire a makeup artist to bring to location together. One thing I notice from a lot of overseas pictures is that the pictures are so beautiful but usually the brides are short of having a nice makeup and hair-do and styling. I would like a nice picture including a beautiful me! :)

    I am considering either Koh Samui or Perth.

    Pls email me at

    HI all,

    Pre-wedding shoot in Perth

    I got more information now.

    If there are at least 2 couples, it should costs about SGD$2500.

    This estimated costs includes:

    * 1 Photographer (member of WPJA) & 1 Assistant for 1 day of photoshoot in Perth
    * Professionally processed photos and digital editing services (45 photos)
    * 3-5 mins Photo Montage
    * DVD video slideshow
    * ONE 12" x 12" deluxe coffee table magazine style album (20 pages - fits about 45 pictures) or 12" x 12" hard bound album (10 pages - fits about 25 pictures)
    * All images returned in Mid-res digital copy & Hi-res digital copy

    For more information, pls email me

    I am really keen but will need to look for another couple who is keen so that this price is valid. Else it will be more expensive than this.

    Hi all,

    I live in Perth. For those who wanna take their wedding photos is perth, consider coming in Spring (Aug-Oct) where the flowers bloom. Araluen is abt 45mins drive from city and in spring there'll be tulips. however it's privately owned so there'll be admission fee. king's park has wild flowers exhibition every yr around sept. also, the beaches here are beautiful. swan valley (abt 30 mins drive from city) where there're some wineries.

    Hi shice... won't it still be cold when you go in august? It's end winter... Don't think the flowers will start blooming that early. If it's lavender and tulips you're after... the timing to go to Melbourne is end Sep/early Oct...

    There's a lavender farm in Hepburn Springs/spa valley... tulip festival around the same time at the Dandenongs

    ya.. i agree.. wanted to have it during the tulip festival too.. but then my pg seems to be rather busy..
  15. shice1

    shice1 New Member

    btw, the lavender farm and tulip festive - do they allow wedding photography in their premises? I only know that tulip festive, u gotta pay entrance fee, but not sure abt the photography thing.

    hi sidney,

    well i guess it depends on what kind of season you want to shoot in... i personally feel the spring towards summer months would be better...
    around august onwards.. not too hot... and not too cold.. LOL

    best to travel during off peak... flights are cheaper, chances are that the photographer would be free also... cos most of them would be quite booked from late september with the ad weddings..

    you may want to contact my pw and ad photographer, bryan from

    he told me he's going to to australia the 2nd half of the year for pw shoots...

    Hi BTBs

    Anyone interested to go to Perth in April 2010 for pre-wedding photoshoot?

    I found a photographer who charges only $1250 for a 2 days photoshoot inclusive of makeup. We can share the cost of the air ticket for the photographer and makeup artist.

    Please email me at for more details of his works if you are keen.

    Hi folks,

    We recently won a 2-day Perth bridal photoshoot with Ezra Koh of Inspirational Photography. The voucher is worth $3500 and requires an additional cash top-up of $2000. As we have prev signed up for a local bridal photoshoot, we would like to let go of the voucher at $2000.

    We have engaged Ezra to be our AD photographer and it was a struggle for us to decide to give up the voucher. Hence we are looking for couples who are sincere & appreciates Ezra's works. You can view his portfolio here:

    The voucher is only valid for use from 3rd Dec - 8 Dec 2010 to Australia, Perth. Booking/Confirmation to be done before 1st Jun 2010.

    It includes:
    - 2 full days photography session with Ezra Koh
    - Makeup & hairdo option (i.e. there’s an option of self-do makeup
    course locally by Ivan Hoo from In Square Salon, or engaging a makeup
    artist from Perth itself, which both will be covered by Ezra)
    - Unlimited shots returned in high resolution DVD
    - Slideshow of your overseas bridal photography
    - 12" x 12" Exclusive Velvet Crafted Album, 26-pages

    Things that you need to provide yourselves with:
    - Flight
    - Accommodation (Ezra can help find good guest house with reasonable pricing)
    - Meals (+ 2 meals for Ezra for the day's shoot - something to fill his stomach)
    - Transport from location-to-location during the shoot, including
    transport for photographer (Ezra mentioned that will likely use his
    friend's car - so can save some costs)
    - Gowns & suits

    With regards to the make up, you may want to learn how to do it thru Ivan, as experience with aussie makeup artists are not really good, cos they are not used to asian features.

    Do let me know if you are interested. Thanks!
