Here are some things and information that you want to note down when it comes to pre wedding photography packages in Singapore.
Let us use the examples of some real companies in Singapore so that you can better appreciate the differences between pre-wedding photography packages.
First of all, let us take a look at the pre-wedding package of Tiny Dot Photography (by Yu Hsin). She offers a 5 hour pre or post wedding photo shoot package in Singapore, with the usual edited digital images as well as a flush mount album and gallery wrapped canvas. It costs a hefty $3000. I would say that $3000 for a 5 hour photo shoot is ridiculously expensive! However, after taking a closer look at her package, I realized that it’s really the flush mount album and canvas which adds up to the bulk of the cost. This is because flush mount albums are generally scratch proof, water proof and is extremely hardy. Such wedding flush mount albums are thus extremely durable and couples who can afford it simply love them. I would say that Yu Hsin’s Tiny Dot Photography’s pre-wedding photo shoot package is a little on the pricier end (but still affordable) but comes with a ton of value. My rating? 8/10.
Second of all, let us take a look at 36 Frames (by Ruey Loon). They are located at Keong Saik Rd. Providing both indoor and outdoor photo shoots, 36 Frames offer very affordable rates. Let us check out his pre-wedding package. At 5 hours, it is only $880 (WOW! much cheaper than Yu Hsin). To be honest, I think this is one of the cheapest in Singapore. If you’re price conscious, check them out. Unfortunately, the only thing is that they only return photos in low resolution. I was a little shocked when I learnt of that because I thought all photographers will return photos only in high resolution. It’s quite ridiculous to return all photographs only in low resolution. I’m happy with the prices but ridiculously disappointed that 36 Frames only returns low res images. Anyway, there will also be 30 selected images which would be designed in their signature style. I’m not sure how it would look like but you can check out their portfolio at http://www.36frames.com/. If nothing matters to you more than saving money, then definitely check out 36 Frames (by Ruey Loon) and get their package.
Third of all, Grandeur wedding studio. They offer a 5 hour as well as 8 hour pre-wedding photography package. In my opinion, the 5 hour one should be more than enough for a pre-wedding photography package. The 8 hour one is quite excessive.. to be honest I don’t know anyone who goes for an 8 hour photo shoot for pre or post wedding. Only AD bridal packages are 8 hours long. Ok, let’s take a closer look at their 5 hour pre-wedding photography package. At only a temporary promotional price of $1150 (usual $1438), they offer all high resolution image (which is good!) in a DVD-ROM (or from what I last heard, Grandeur Wedding Studio can provide you with a thumb drive instead if you do not have a DVD-ROM reader). They also provide 30 images to be re-touched and to go through extensive post-processing… and these 30 images they offer you to print out and give it to you in an optional flush mount album. The flush mount album unfortunately does not come with the normal pre-wedding photography package. You need to purchase extra. (But think about it, even if it costs $1000, it would still save you over $600 by going with Grandeur Wedding Studio rather than Tiny Dot Photography (by Yu Hsin)). Lol! How awesome is that. For just a little bit more than Ruey Loon’s offerings, you’re able to get nearly the same quality of services and products as going with a high end one like Yu Hsin would. Additionally, Grandeur takes pretty cool images, just check out their above link and see their online website portfolio. Truly amazing.
A brief conclusion is that the prices that you pay is generally reflective of the quality and quantity of the things that you’re going to receive in return. Therefore, always make the right decision for you and your fiance (everyone is different, ask yourself and your fiance, not your family or friends). Pick the right pre-wedding photography packages for YOU and your FIANCE. Not for your guests nor your parents nor your friends. Remember this!
