Last Friday, I visited the photographer I had shortlisted — Theme Photography. I’m quite particular about the wedding photographer, and had noted a few photographers I was interested in:
(2) Chase Hasemi
In my opinion, each photographer has their own style. I simply had to choose the photography style I wished for. I decided against Chase Hasemi and Pizareuz (not because they were not any good, but simple because their style was different from what I envisioned).
Between Bliss and Theme Photography however, I was at a complete loss. I simply could not make up my mind. They each had their distinctive style: Bliss photographers choose a more vintage look for their photos while Theme photographers shot in a deeper and darker light. I met up with both Bliss and Theme photographers to see what they each had to offer.
I met with the owner of Theme photography, Abang Yunos with my mother a few weeks ago during their open house. Being professional and polite, he won my mum over in a matter of minutes. By the end of the session, she was insisting I took him. His expensive package held me back and I knew I could not make the decision on my own. I consulted with TF and we agreed on meeting with the Bliss photographers before making a decision.
The advantage about Bliss was that they were a lot cheaper (and let’s face it, when wedding planning, most of us try to save money where we can). The photographer (Syarfique) was younger, but he had a lot of ideas and could relate to us. He also took a lot of candid photos during the actual wedding ceremony, something I really loved. We finally made our decision based on two factors: (1) My mum’s preference for Theme Photography, and (2) that the Bliss photographer, Syarfique was unavailable on our wedding date. This was only a secondary factor as our wedding date was not confirmed as yet, and could still be changed. But in the end, I decided to take my mum’s choice and went with Theme Photography. TF and I went to their offices at Joo Chiat Place last Friday night and made the deposit, so its done.
You can visit the photographers individual Facebook accounts for more detail and to view their photographs. Every photographer has their own style and they will suit different couples.
