Xiaocai fm Malaysia KL
heard he's one of the top photographer there
nt sure true or nt
most impt u go n see his portfolio
let me know yr opinion
bt one thing he's v helpful he help me to look for my actual day photographer
Went down to YC & confirmed my design! So happy!
Spoke to Xiao Cai & but too bad, there were not many works to look at. Cos he had only taken for 3 couples so far. But can tell that he's a very hardworking person, who will really do his research b4hand.
I still cant decide whtr i will be using him. But Xiao Cai told me he will do some homework & cut out some photos & discuss with me the kind of style i like. So will talk to him again & hopefully by then, he'll hv more works to show me.
I believe YC's makeup artist will go to the hotel. Nvr heard of brides travelling all the way to the bridal boutique.
My photoshoot also somewhere in Feb/Mar. But i've already cofirmed the design of the WG. I had 2 appts with them before confirming the design. 1st fitting will be in Dec. Tink you'd better meet up with Yvonne fast.
i'd seen xiaocai's work. ok ok lar. no comments. still prefer dean's work though. but we are willin to let xiaocai take the chance.
went for my fitting and seems rather smooth. one funni thing is that feng jie seems to make remarks abt me to another colleague wich i overheard. i am pretty upset. fancy a tailor can be so rude. there should be a level of professionalism there. no control. lucky my hubby never hear. else he will lodge a complaint.
does anyone know how much do a make-up artist charge before 7am?? cos my hubby needs to come fetch me abt that time.
Now I feel so rushed. My wedding is in Jan and I just feel so tensed. Lucky the gown is out. going down in 2 weeks time. my PS is in end Nov. But now I just worry abt the photography after reading carefully through all the comments again!
Cowie, do u know how long approximately it is to produce a mag style album? pretty worried here. cos I feel that i do not have sufficient time here, plus no mood when i face the abv incident.
ginger30, uhmm, I am not too sure about the mag style album. But if you let Yvonne know that you WANT the album before your wedding, I'm sure she will be able to co-ordinate that for you. Dun be too stress over it okay
Based on my experience with YC, if there is anything that you are unhappy about, talk to Yvonne directly. She is the one who calls the shots at the shop. Not the rest of the staff. She is very professional and will do her best to serve all her customers.
Sorry to hear about what Fengjie did. Was she really refering to you?? Is there an misunderstanding anyway? You may want to reflect directly to Yvonne about it, cos she may be able to arrange in such a way that you do not have to work together with Fengjie in future (at least not face to face). That may make you feel better?
Dun be too stressed. The wedding will pass very quickly. Take your time to enjoy the process of preparing for it. All the very best to your photo-shoot, as well as your up-coming wedding
I oso signed up with yc. I just wonder has anyone pay the extra booking fee for Dean which initially agreed to use him.
As we are oreadi very tight with our budget & we signed up partly because we are quite impressed of dean's work.
Dily is a old-timer in YC, is it? when is your wedding? Have u decided on your gowns already? MTM or OTR?
My hubby is away now, so, I oso dunno when would I be going down YC.. just wondering recently how is everybody - eg. the new photographer's fotos lah, any other comments about their make-up artists lah.. hee....I super kpo..
btw, how did you end up using Dily? Recommended by YC?
Ok, i hv seen two albums which Feng Jie told was done by Xiao Cai. But I can c a different in the style, somehow i felt that they were by done by two photographers. His work is normal, nothing impressive but mayb Dean and him has a different style thus cannot really compare. And I only get to c 2 miserable album which the others are brought to the exhibitions at Suntec.
I did ask y Dean leave YC. She did not really tell me the reason but just said that some customers did complain about his work. Is it true? It seems to me alot of them like Dean's work.
I manage to select my WG OTR instead of MTM. I hv shorlisted two bustier tops. I was surprised that I can bustier top.
Along, i thought I can only wear those with off shoulders or cap sleeves bcos of my flabby arms. But Feng Jie insisted I should try some other designs. Thanks to her anyway, frankly I do not like to wear those with sleeves, cos I felt that I look awful.
Got to go down on 22nd again for the fitting of WG and choose the colour of EG. Real worried that Feng Jie cannot make it for my PS on 9th Dec 2002.
I went down for my 2nd fitting last Sunday.
Got a "shock" when Sher (designer) told me that Ah Liang is leaving. The reasons she told me is that he got some compliants frm customer & he is going for commercial shootings in the future.
i feel quite upset bec. i hve signed up the package partly of Dean. And i taking my PS this mth.
My makeup artist is Fauziah, she is O.K.
Can communicate well.
Me too SHOCK when heard ah liang is leaving
i even call Yvonne to verify
but dun be too upset give some confidence to the new photographer maybe go down n take a look at the new photographer's work no use to get upset over it loh cos we must be happy as its our BIG day
me also taking my PS this mth or next
hw's yr trial makeup
my trial i find tt my makeup nt v natural...
So how, if we still want to use Dean, do we still have to pay the $300 booking fee?? Has any brides here still insist on Dean and have to fork out extra $$$$? anyone care to share? It's could be a big disappointment if the new photographer is not up to our standard, I mean, you get to keep your photo album for life, and I want it to be well-taken and not some piece of shit which I regret whenever I show it my friends/relatives or even my kids in future.
But my 2nd fitting not sooo fine.
i suppose to meet up with Dean. Then Sher pops that He is leaving. I didn't get to see the new
photographer yet. Hve not communicate with him yet.My WG (mtm) also not ready. Sequins not sewn. Anyway,i hve request to come down again before my PS.
i hve bring along a page of a Bride mag-the model's makeup is something i got in mind.
I show it to YC makeup artist, she recreated it on my face. I find it OK. I personally didnt like makeup of 'Red-based'. You maybe look 'ang-gong gong'in the photo.
if u are not comfortable with yr trial makeup,talk to the makeup artist & on the other hand,You can flip thru' magazines & if u come across any makeup you like, Tear it out & show it to yr makeup artist, ask her opinions.
to all YC brides, so long never write in this forum, hee hee ... i have seen xiao cai's work and I found he is as good as ah liang, so we decided xiao cai to be our photographer.
our PS will be in Jan 03, can anyone suggest places that is nice ? like some green and blue ?
He's now at Wedding News Bridal Couture, saw him last mth when i requested to meet their photographer... don't think he is out on his own cos he doesn't have a shop. Like all of u, i was also very impressed with him, but when i learnt that he changed bridal boutiques so often, first precious moment, then YC, now WN, within 2-3 years... i got worried whether he would change shop again?? So never sign up with WN lor.... it's a pity, i think Dean does very good works!
Sorry Orangecup, i didn't sign up with YC, just kpo pop in this thread cos i saw u mention Dean...
The problem is, my wedding is more than a year away... so i thought i better don't risk it, his job-hopping is very worrying! I thought he was only with YC for 1 or 2 yrs??
Anyway, if u've already signed up YC, might as well take their new Xiao Cai, there's no guarantee that dean will give YC customers good work even if u top up $300... he no longer has a stake in YC mah! Just my thoughts...
hv been following this thread for quite sometime already. agree with joni that since u hv already signed up with yc, u might as well take their new photographer. in fact b4 i went for my trial makeup few wks ago, we were still wondering whether to insist on having dean as our photographer. however, after we saw his recent works, we decided to take the xiao cai instead. reason is b'cos we feel he didn't put in much effort n tat quite a no. of the shoots he took r quite blur. n according to yc, a lot of customers r actully not satisfied with his works recently as he is always late for the ps n will get the assistant who has not much experience to cover for him for the 1st few hrs.. in addtion, it seems tat he is fond of making empty promises whereby he will try to persuade customers to develop more photos and tell them that everything can be touched up even though he knew tat it cannot be done.. n it will be too late when the customers know tat they r being "cheated" by him. therefore, i would suggest u to hv a discussion with yvonne n take a look at his recent works 1st b4 insisting on using him as ur photographer. hope this info would be useful to u..
just pop in to say that i had my pic taken at yc few years back.....makeup artist was dily (in fact she was my hubb's cousin)...and ah liang is my photographer....i was so satisfied with their work tat i ended up with an additonal album "P ....irene and dily are students of the same teacher, so they have the same style of makeup ...
