Not every photographer in Singapore is good, and hence I have written this blog post to discuss about the various wedding photographers you may encounter while looking for in Singapore. I will discuss the more common and popular wedding studios you most likely would have found in Singapore.
Mindy Tan (http://www.mindytanweddings.com) – In my opinion, she is getting more and more popular in Singapore, but in my honest opinion, her works are clearly over rated. Sure, they’re actually technically sound and beautiful, however, they’re not as good as some people tout it to be. Somehow, it doesn’t make me go wow… and I’m not sure if that’s a good idea when it comes to wedding photos. I want my own wedding photographs to be nothing short of breath taking.
Bloc Memoire (http://www.blocmemoire.com) – Don’t ask me why. I just like the photographs they take. They have this faded feel to almost all of their photographs though, and not everyone may like wedding images which look like this, so this is something you may want to note. Their photographs are not very saturated in terms of color strength, so if you prefer more saturated colors wedding photographs, then look elsewhere. But if you like the faded feeling, then Bloc Memoire is a good choice of a wedding studio in Singapore.
Grandeur Wedding Studio (http://www.grandeurweddingstudio.com) – I also love their photographs. In my honest opinion, they’re one of the best studios in Singapore. I feel that the photographs they take just focuses on being breath taking. They may not be ‘technically’ sound for all the photos, but I can assure you that the photographs they take are breath taking for couples. In fact, they also have an Instagram profile, so you can feel free to check out more of Grandeur Wedding Studio’s portfolio on their Instagram profile @grandeurweddingstudio.
Now I know most couples may feel intimidated by the many choices that they’re able to find on the Internet, as there are so many wedding studios and wedding photographers in Singapore. Here’s how you can pick your ideal wedding photographer (like how I used to pick mine http://www.grandeurweddingstudio.com/photography-singapore) with relative ease!
1 First of all, know what type of wedding photographs both you and your spouse love. For instance, some couples love black and white wedding photographs, while other couples in Singapore may love something unique to Singapore (e.g. with Singapore landscapes in the background e.t.c.). You should discuss with your spouse about your preference in wedding photos before even going out to look for a potential wedding photographer in Singapore.
2 Second of all, after looking through the Internet (Google for their websites or search for Singapore wedding photographers on Instagram) for people (photographers or studios) in Singapore which have a portfolio which style suits you and your spouse’s preference, shortlist these people. After you get a list of their contacts, send them emails (if possible so you can compile easier) and then ask them for their price and packages.
3 Third of all, since all of the studios suit your tastes and preferences, now you should look at what you get in the package, price and how fast they respond to you. (There are horror stories of couples engaging photography service, and usually these photographers or studios are very slow and unresponsive.) The number one most important thing now is to see who replies you fast enough (at least within 24 hours of your enquiry).
4 Fourth of all, look at what they provide in their package. Some wedding photographers only provide photography services (e.g. companies like 36 Frames), while others include everything (very rare, it would be very expensive) while others in Singapore includes photography services but with discounted partner rates for other bridal services (e.g. .
5 Finally, if the package suits you and your spouse, then check out the prices. Once the above are all right, then look at the prices. Otherwise it wouldn’t make sense to look at the prices without having made a decision based on the other above more important factors.
If you’re anything like a normal bride, you’ll definitely feel very anxious and nervous about your wedding photoshoot! This may be the case too even if it’s just pre wedding photography and not the actual day shoot.
First of all, you need to understand that if you have such feelings, it is only normal, so don’t be freaking out and get insomnia.
The best way to get over your nerves when it comes to something like wedding photography or anything major in your life is to simply see behind the scenes of other people who went through similar stuff. Watch the following video and follow a real life couple as they had their wedding photoshoot in Singapore.
Feeling more sure about what will happen during your photoshoot yet? Good. You will want to watch as many real life videos about behind the scenes of couples who have gone through wedding photoshoots, so you can better expect what will happen. When you have control and good expectations of what will happen, it’s easy to not be nervous or anxious. It’s also easier for you to know what will or may happen, and hence what you should do to prepare for them when and if they come such as bad weather or something.
