Finding the right Singapore Wedding Photography agency? Here are some tips.
Selecting a wedding photographer in Singapore is hard. With hundreds of options and without the experience to discern a good wedding photographer for a bad one, such a decision is understandably difficult. Here are 3 key points to look out for when looking for wedding photography services in Singapore.
Price is not king
Don't let cheap prices fool you, conversely, don't let exorbitant prices trick you either. Price does not necessarily mean higher quality wedding photography services. This is added on by staging practices, which fortunately only a small group of vendors uses. Staging refers to a situation where a package is marked at a really high price and mysteriously gets a 50% discount for 'this exclusive time period' only. - which mysteriously last through the whole year. This creates the illusion that the package is more valuable than it should be, prompting couples to make an emotional decision.
To sum it up, couples should always be wary of staging tactics, and not think that high prices would guarantee quality. What the couple can do is to set a comfortable budget range, and select your favorite wedding photographer that is within that range.
Different wedding photographers have different editing and shoot style. Couples may prefer either bright wedding photography styles or moody ones. Deciding on a preferred style will definitely ease your search for a Singapore Wedding Photographer.
One fatal mistake that some couples make is to hire a wedding photographer based on price and expect the photographer to edit a style that is out of his comfort zone. This is a mistake as you are paying a photographer to conceptualize your wedding photos in a way that he is not experienced in. Our advice? Don't save that cost, trust us, it's not worth it.
While the wedding photographer's skill is definitely the deal breaker, you might also consider your chemistry with the photographer. It doesn't hurt to arrange a few meetings with your shortlisted list of wedding photographers in Singapore. Get to know them, talk to them, understand their communication style.
This is important as having chemistry with your wedding photographer would allow you to be more comfortable during shoots. You may also end up making another friend that will go an additional mile for you when editing your photos. This is why tlgraphy's pushes for great end-to-end services in their photography packages and always make it a point to get to know their clients at a personal level.
