In the latest wedding photography disaster just a few days ago in Singapore, there has been much hoo hah in Singapore’s online circles about a couple whose wedding photographs were so terrible that it almost felt like the photographs were faked.
Here is some solid advice to help you make sure you don’t end up with a mediocre wedding photographer in Singapore.
First of all, go to a professional. Don’t engage a freelancer. I mean, if a photographer is that solid, why would he or she be willing to settle for a few hundred dollars for 10 hours of photo shoot, and perhaps 100 more hours of editing? Additionally, he or she would be so busy due to super high demand that providing such low prices don’t make any sense.
Second of all, always check out a photographer or studio’s review online (wherever possible). Don’t just look for good reviews, more importantly, make sure there’s no bad reviews when it comes to the quality of the photographs taken as well as the response time by the photographer or wedding photography studio.
Third of all, don’t run the risk of having the make up artist (MUA), photographer, videographer e.t.c. from the same company unless that studio is extremely well established, or you personally had recommendations for that company. This is because the quality of a company’s services are usually consistent for their services, and this means that if one of their pillars of services turn out to be bad, it probably is also going to be bad for the other types of services (i.e. bad photographer, likely to be a bad videographer experience too).
Last but not least, trust your gut. If you feel that something is wrong, there probably is.
