Why It’s Important To Engage A Specialized Wedding Photographer

With the many bridal photography horror stories in Singapore (you can find these stories everywhere on bridal forums), especially the recent one which scandal was so big it even appeared on Straits Times, it’s especially important not to blindly engage a studio without finding out about their photographers.

There are namely two types of wedding studios in Singapore. The first type would be those which are simply wedding gown boutiques or planner which coordinate everything and will package photography services together with their own offered services. The second type would be a wedding photography studio with photographers working for it. I highly recommend that you either go with a single photographer or with the second type of wedding studio as mentioned above. This is because you will be able to vet the quality of their portfolio, as they are usually publicly displayed on their website, and what you see is what you get. However, for the first type of wedding studios as mentioned above, their photographers are usually outsourced or partner companies, and hence it’s harder to know the quality of the eventually engaged wedding photographer’s quality with absolute certainty.

All of the horror stories which come from brides and grooms are related to the first type of wedding studios. Hence, to avoid all that unnecessary troubles, you should simply engage a wedding photography studio instead. I would highly recommend that you choose a studio like mindytanweddings.com or grandeurweddingstudio.com/photography-singapore or natstudios.sg for the best results.

Singapore wedding photography cultures

Different environments produce different cultures. Every country has their own unique culture. Every organization has their own unique culture. This goes the same for wedding photography. Different country will have their own wedding cultures. Coupled with the different styles of the wedding photographers living in different countries, the wedding photographs produced will be very different.

Singapore wedding photography has changed dramatically over the past decades. Propelled by the rapid economic development and globalization, the wedding photographs taken by Singaporeans look very modern now. By looking modern, I refer to the modern wedding attire and also the modern background of the photographs. Many wedding couples in Singapore will opt to wear modern attire such as gowns for the brides and suit and shirt for the grooms. In the past, Singaporean wedding couples usually wear their traditional wedding attire. For instance, Chinese brides will be wearing “Cheong Sum” dresses.

Singaporeans have the flexibility to choose between an urban backdrop or a natural scenic backdrop for their wedding photo shoots. It depends on the individuals’ tastes and preferences for this. There are common locations where couples go to for their wedding photo shoots in Singapore. For those wanting an urban backdrop for their photo shoots, they will usually go to the Marina Bay, Marina Barrage, and inside the Central Business Districts where the skyscrapers are. For those wanting a natural scenic backdrop for their wedding photo shoots, they will usually go to places like Changi Beach, Sentosa Beach, Bukit Timah Hill and the Botanic Gardens. Some people may prefer to take their wedding photo shoots at locations which define Singapore, such as coffee shops and shop houses.

Most importantly, there are very talented wedding photographers in Singapore. Most of the wedding photographers in Singapore are born and raised in Singapore. Hence, they are able to provide Singapore wedding couples a very localized service. They know their way around Singapore well and also know which locations will be more suited for the wedding couples’ tastes. Do check out the wedding photographer’s portfolio before engaging them. Their portfolio will tell you their capabilities.
