All About Pre Wedding Photo Shoots In Singapore

Ever been to a couple’s pre wedding photo shoot or happened to see another couple’s pre wedding photo shoot on the streets or some park in Singapore?

Here’s what you may find interesting about such wedding photography, and if you need one, here’s whom I think is the best and most popular pre wedding photographer in Singapore.

First and foremost, Singapore usually has a warm and humid weather all year round. So make sure to bring your water bottle, umbrella and tower / handkerchief if you wish to keep yourself looking fresh throughout the day. Of course, make sure to hire a make up artist to touch up your make up as well.

Second of all, contrary to what most people think, pre wedding photographers are not a ridiculously wealthy bunch of people. Therefore, most of them will need some form of transportation or another. Most photographers in Singapore do not have a private car. Therefore, make sure to check with your photographer if transportation needs to be found. Do not make assumptions without checking.

Third of all, more of the hard work is done during the photoshoot day for an actual day photographer. However, most of the hard work is done AFTER the photography session for a pre wedding photographer in Singapore. This is because there will be extensive colour correction and editing work behind the scenes. That’s what they’re really charging you for if you think they’re expensive.

Fourth of all, what you see is usually what you get. Just like you would not expect a Western cuisine chef to whip up an entire table worth of excellent Shark Fin’s soup and Chinese delicacies, you cannot simply expect a photographer whose portfolio is all of a certain photography style to suddenly change and magically capture bridal images of a completely different style. If you like pre wedding photos which are vivid and with stronger colours, then make sure to go with a pre wedding photographer whose photographs look like that. (The above recommended photographer has such photos.)

Finally, although the name says otherwise, it’s ok to have your ‘pre wedding’ photo shoot AFTER your wedding ceremony! In fact, many couples wait until they’re financially stable enough to engage a pre wedding photographer in Singapore. This is because a good photographer charges more, and if you want the best photos, then you would ideally need to pay more. This is why many couples opt for post wedding photo shoots… which is essentially pretty much the same thing!

Review of Grandeur Wedding Studio

By now, I’m sure that most of you have heard of the upcoming and increasingly popular wedding photography firm in Singapore – Grandeur Wedding Studio (

Many readers of my blog has requested me to write a review on them, and I have decided to do so in this post. Do take note that this is from what I gather from the Internet, and around 5-10 of their past customers.

  • First and foremost, although they also do videography, their real specialty is in photography. I would highly recommend you to pick them for their photography (for their main expertise) and videography if you need it as well. If you need videography only, it’s probably ideal if you look for another company in Singapore.
  • Second of all, do note that although their name has a studio in it, they offer all kinds of ‘outdoor’ wedding photography (e.g. non studio shots).
  • Thirdly, from the wedding photos displayed on their website as well as their Instagram page, I would say I was really impressed when I first saw it. Even from my point of view as a professional, their photographs look really amazing – so if you want amazing photographs, I believe they would be a good choice.
  • Next, I have downloaded their price list and packages information from their website, and what I found was that their rates are certainly very reasonable for such a high level of quality in their wedding photographs.
  • One thing to note is that they’re not a full service studio. This means that Grandeur Wedding Studio will take care of all things related to your wedding photography and / or videography needs, but you need to arrange your own bridal make up artist, and actual day wedding transportation vehicles e.t.c.

All in all, I would say that for such a relatively new studio, Alvin (founder) has done a tremendous and amazing job – let’s give him the support he needs.

Who Should You Pick For Wedding Photography In Singapore?

There are namely 3 types of wedding photography couples take in Singapore, and depending on which one you really want, you have slightly different ideal choices for a wedding photographer.

The 3 types of wedding photography in Singapore are ROM photoshoot, pre wedding photoshoot as well as actual day wedding photography. Not every couple will go for a ROM photoshoot, but most couples in Singapore would go for pre wedding and actual day.

When it comes to ROM photography, JR Photography is actually a pretty good choice. One of their specialties which they’re really good in is ROM photography. Although not every couple in Singapore goes for a ROM photoshoot, if you’re considering it, then make sure you and your spouse chooses one of the better bridal studios in Singapore just like JR Photography.

When it comes to pre wedding photography, Grandeur Wedding Studio is one of the more popular wedding photography company in Singapore and is usually the top few choices couples in Singapore end up picking. Although they also do ROM and actual day wedding ceremony, most of their customers are actually couples who choose pre wedding photography. Make sure to check out Grandeur Wedding Studio in Singapore for your pre wedding needs.

When it comes to actual day wedding ceremony photography, one of the top choices is actually Edmund Photo. Although their website looks absolutely mediocre due to the outdated design, their photography is different. Their actual day wedding photographs look very real and you feel as though you were there at the ceremony and an actual day wedding events if you were to look at the wedding pictures they took.

An Honest Review Of Singapore Wedding Photographers

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 ( – 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 ( – 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 ( – 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.

Picking A Singapore Wedding Photographer Can Be Easy – Here’s How

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 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.
