Just to share about our experience from the photoshoot we had at Taiwan just last week.
Me and my Wife signed up with Bluebay back in Feb and was skeptical on signing up ANY of the bridal package due to too many rumors and sayings out there. Somemore Bluebay was the first one we went and immediately sat down to talk about details. We had maggie to serve us, she showed us lots of photos and albums and told us about their package and etc. We sat and ask for many questions. Maggie was very patience and answered all our questions one by one. At first we wanted a local photoshoot but eventually we decide on going to Taiwan as there are much more scenery which my fiancee loved to have as our background for our photoshoot.
Upon signing the package, maggie and keiko contact us and meet us for a session to talk about our pre photoshoot details in taiwan. Maggie told us lots of details to take note. So taiwan here we go.
We booked a 7 days 6 nights trips and it is way sufficient. We check in our hotel and proceed to Bluebay Taiwan about 5pm for the choosing of gowns. My wife was pretty impressive about the selection of gowns they have. Vic and Joanne was the one serving us and as my fiancee had really not much idea , so joanne picked a couple of gowns according to her favorite colors. There are just too many variety in gown and finally my pretty bride to be chose the gown for our photoshoot. As for the suit, we proceed to another tailor which I had my measurement taken and get the suit for trying. As usual, they insist my suit to be very fitting and i'm seriously not used to wearing suit but their shirt, vest and coat were very comfortable. I even paid additional for the extra accessories for my wedding shoot and the tailor even gave me an extra bowtie when I purchased a tailor made shirts from them. ( I got the shirt about 4 days later and the quality was indeed good and comfortable. I will definitely be buying more from them next time. Highly Recommend. PM me to find out more )
We took about 4hrs to choose the gowns and suits. Unlike the rest, our wedding shoot take place one day after we choose our gown/suits. So we had plenty of rest on that day and rest early to prepare for our shoot on the next day.
As for our photoshoot, we had AP as our photographer, Ah Hsien for Videography , Jia Ning as our stylist and Ah wei as lighting assistant who constantly cracking jokes and making funny expression/movements to make us smile as naturally as possible.
Weather didn't turn good for that day as it was raining, so we are unable to proceed to the location we wanted, so AP suggest us to go over some recommended place nearby our initial location. However we did settle for some outdoor location and we pretty like the place. Jia Ning was super attentive to us especially when we had our photoshoot in the rain, umbrella was everywhere so we had no worries on getting drenched by the rain. We even went to a new place which not many people know yet for our alternative location , turns out we are one of the few who had photoshoot on that location. So overall it's pretty unique and we love it!
With the professionalism from AP and Ah Hsien Photography/videography skills , Jia Ning's Superb Attentiveness and the crackiness joker Ah wei, the shoot went very smoothly and me and my wife are very satisfied with it despite the earlier rain did made us quite disappointed that we are unable to go to our initial location for the shoot. But overall, it's still a great effort by the team for the alternate location found. Thanks!
We went back 3 days later to meet up with VIC to choose our photos. My wife looks stunningly gorgeous and i was quite handsome as well. Hahaha... I can say there is only minimum salesmanship in this because as we choose our photo, we had already set our ideal budget for the extra photo that we want to take and they are very transparent on everything. So as the offer is too good for us to reject, we took another extra 50 photos from it. =P
We felt that it's pretty worth it as we took 4hrs to choose the photo and now we are very excited to see our albums when it is ready. Soooo excited!
Overall we think Bluebay services are pretty professional and they consider all aspect of a couple bridal needs. I would like to thank Bluebay Taiwan team especially VIC, Joanne, AP, Ah Hsien, Jia Ning and Ah wei for providing such a pleasant and memorable pre wedding shooting environment and experiences for me and my wife. I would like to thank Maggie and Keiko as well for constantly update us on our package and inform us on everything we need to know.
For us , we still have an AD to go and we are looking forward to it.
As for any new couple who consider going for an oversea photoshoot, I'll definitely highly recommend Bluebay Wedding. =)
