Pre-photo shoot support in Singapore (10/10)
Signed the wedding package in 2014 and they mentioned that it is valid for 3 years. True enough, they honoured their words when we take our shoot recently.
Hubby to be signed the package immediately after speaking to Maggie because she is very sincere and share her advices. They are a very honest bridal studio whom is very transparent with the rates.
Fast forward to 2016, Maggie arrange for meetup 6 months and 3 months before the shoot respectively and give gentle reminders of things to take note of, things to prepare and also what are the charges on the spot.
· Entrance fee for 真愛桃花園
· Ampoules x 6 (4 for bride and 2 for groom)
· Rental of vehicle by per hour
Maggie’s recommendation of Via loft is perfect. 7-eleven is just downstairs.
Pre-photo shoot support in Taiwan (9/10)
Prior to arriving in Taiwan, Ann called me from Taipei on the reminder of gown selection date, shooting date, and photo selection date.
On the date of gown selection, she went through the route. We were rather disappointed to be unable to take flowers shoot because many have wilt due to the weather and there aren’t any other alternatives due to the season. We wished that the route could be planned with other opportunities of flower.
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. We end up getting a 3rd set of blue as female has 5 sets of clothes.
Gown Selection (10/10)
I was rather conservative in trying certain dresses, but 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.
Makeup artist (10/10)
佳宁 Jia Ning is very friendly and warm. I love the hairdos and makeup, it compliments 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.
得哥 (De 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 得哥 will suggest that we do as per what is nature of us and improve.
伟庭 (Weiting) is the photographer taking the behind the scenes. He is very helpful in guiding where to look and also helped me with the dress. Of cause, he didn’t forget his main duty of lighting when helping me.
The team brought the requested balloons, signages of “Marry me” but was not use.
Perhaps due to my selection of dress, we did not use it at all. Our advice for couples is to have some of your preferred pose in mind to help with generating more ideas and pose.
If you have desired props, please bring and show them in advance.
Post photo selection (10/10)
While most of the photos are selected by ourselves- very smooth and swift, Ann gave very good inputs in identifying similar photos / “feel” that we have chosen.
