Pre-photo shoot support in Taiwan (9/10)
On the date of gown selection, Joan was really patient with us and went through the trial of gowns for HOURS! Joan deserves full stars for this. Probably the most patient person i've ever met so far! Furthermore, the service and support provided at bluebay were just simply excellent, they went through the photo shoot route with us and even helped us in our selection process, everything went smoothly.
Man’s selection of suit is at ELE suit that is a few streets away and reachable via cab in 3 minutes. Their standard suit is black and white. For other selection of grey or blue will be additional cost. To my disappointment, comparing ELE to bluebay service, ELE was disappointing. To begin with, the suits arent even customise for the groom, they will only adjust the length of the sleeves. too bad for better body build guys, they will not adjust the chest and button area for your suit. My hubby did not have any of his photo taken with a button up suit as its too tight at the button area due to bigger chest.

Joan is very encouraging in sharing different styles that will suits me and give constructive feedback. I managed to pick different styles – elegant, sexy, sweet.

Jia Ning is very friendly and warm. I love the hairdos and makeup, it matched the dresses very well. Her magic hands done flawless touch up and also transform my hair into so many style. She lent me a pair of platform shoes to use for movement and for the shoot as most of the time the photo won’t show our feet. When we travel from location to location, she helped me my dress. She is very lovely to show her concern when the typhoon is coming, she texted us on before and during typhoon to ensure that we are safe. Furthermore, she even took out her latest accessories for me to put on! of course the most important thing is that it matches the gown flawlessly!
Mao Ge is a very friendly photographer and gave clear and good direction for angle and pose. We have limited pose suggestion, quite repetitive but because some of the movement came very naturally and Mao Ge will suggest that we do as per what is nature of us and improve.
Xiang Xiang is the photographer taking the behind the scenes. She is very helpful in guiding where to look and also helped me with the dress. Of cause, she didn’t forget his main duty of lighting when helping me. She IS EXTREMELY hardworking. Those shots that revealed nice gown pose and balloons etc, those were man made by Xiang Xiang, YES shes the one who have to throw the balloon up for the photographer to take the picture, IF the shots are not well taken, she have to do that again without any complain.
Post photo selection (10/10)
While most of the photos are selected by ourselves- very smooth and swift, Vic gave very good inputs in identifying similar photos / “feel” that we have chosen.
