1. What is your style?
The term “photojournalistic” has been so over used that people are often confused or simple doesn’t know what it is anymore. My style is simple, Cinematic to be exact and that is to capture every moment that will ‘speak’ to the viewer. I believe in the phrase “a picture speaks a thousand words”, and in the photos that I capture I would hope to not only speak but emote the ambience of the scene. So you might say that is probably “photojournalistic”, in which I would somewhat agree. However, I would say that sometimes I will need to create the mood as well as the scene so that the photo can appear just right. With me, the couple and friends doesn’t have to worry about looking good. Because my aim is to make them look great in all the photos that I take.
2. Do you provide gowns & suits?
No, I don’t. However, I do have partner gown and accessories vendor which I can recommend.
3. Do you photograph group photos and details?
Most definitely! Besides capturing the couple and their friends and families, I sincerely believed that capturing the minute details of the wedding preparation and decorations is equally important to complete the ‘wedding day’ album.
4. Where can we see your latest portfolio online?
Please follow my Facebook Page and Instagram for my latest portfolio and updates. I will update my website as frequent as possible, with more comprehensive showcase of the weddings I’ve photographed.
5. What is your pricing?
I believe an artist should be appreciated for his/her work and price alone should not determine the value of the artist. If you would allow me some time to share with you my vision and how I can assist to create a sense of romance in your wedding, I would be most delighted to have a meet up with you. Please kindly contact me via the CONTACT tab and I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you do not receive my reply, it could be dropped into the spam/junk folder in your mailbox.
6. How come your pricelist does not mention about the max. coverage timing (ie. 10 or 12 hrs etc) ?
As a cinematographer, there is no complete story if we just lock ourselves to 10hrs of shooting time. My approach is to cover from beginning till the end so that nothing is missed. Nothing is insignificant as every single moment makes up your wedding day. Hence there is no fixed timing for coverage (as long as its before the banquet ends). So that you can enjoy your wedding with a peace of mind 🙂
7. Do you provide childhood montage service?
Yes I do, at a top up of $350 (basic slideshow presentation). On another note, you can opt for our Loveinstills’ Signature Concept video at $750 (its a half day video shoot)
8. How can we reserve your photography service? What are the payment methods?
40% – confirmation and lock in dates
40% – 1 week before your actual wedding day
20% – 1 week before collection of photos
9. What will happen after the reservation?
After the reservation, I will arrange a meetup with you to discuss about the wedding. This is so that besides understanding the flow of the day, we will also better understand each other.
