Let’s take a break of talking about the old topics. Let’s talk about some Happy here!
If you haven’t know, I’ve just went for my sister’s wedding dinner. Wow. It was fantastic. Okay. It was my sister’s wedding, and of course, I’m so happy that she finally got married! It has been so long that she wanted a man who loves her. So after like a GAZILLION years… she got the man of her life, and I’m really happy for her!
But what also impresses me is the overall planning of the wedding. As you know, my sister is not young like those 20-plus girls who want a fairy-tale/princess type of wedding. Anyway, I won’t reveal her age here on my blog, but I can say, she is not that young. But what she really wants, is a meaningful and memorable event. Not lavish by spending hundreds of thousands. Just a meaningful one that gets everyone close to her to come together to celebrate.
And I can tell you, she planned everything herself. okay, maybe not 100%. We, the siblings and the relatives also help her. But she did all the planning. She is clear what she wants. She knows who to hire for photography. She knows the theme of the wedding dinner. She knows how to treat all her guests well.
I’m SUPER IMPRESSED.
Just a simple thought – I may want my sister to plan my wedding. That’s a side story.
My sister has a friend who worked as a photographer. He does actual wedding day photography for wedding day event. Anyway, that’s his website if you want to check out first. Yes, he is awesome is taking all the shoots of the wedding day. Previously, I thought a small wedding like my sister’s can just get any good friend to be a photographer for that night. You know, that kind of give them a good-enough camera and get them to help you shoot photos wherever the wedding couple go.
However, I think that’s the worse idea ever. No friends want to work for free, plus no friends can continue to take photos for you for the Entire Night! Crazy right, they come for wedding dinner, and you ask them to be your wedding day photographer for free (or a small fee).
But that day, I’m quite impressed with the works of TJ (the photographer from ThatPhotographer.sg). He is quick and skilled. You may thought that he is not around when the best moments of the wedding took place (like couple kissing, exchanging rings, KISS!)… but i’m wrong! Just because I didn’t see him, doesn’t mean he is not around. He is at the back of the stage taking the best shot!
I’m at the front of the stage, and I can tell you, taking the photo of the KISSING is the most important, but yet most difficult one. Everyone is fighting for that shot. But the smart TJ, got the best shot, and I don’t know how he did it. But he did it, and that’s why my sis paid for his service.
So after today, then I really know how important it is to get a really good wedding photographer. I guess my sister is now glimmering with joy with that KISSING photo hanging big in her room. Sorry, I can’t show it here on my blog also, or my sister gonna kill me. But I can say that’s her favorite shot of the night, if not she won’t spend a few thousand dollars more to print it BIG, and FRAME it up!
That said, if you really want to capture the best moments of your wedding day, please don’t get your friend. I mean, don’t ask for free labor from your friend. Get a good photographer, like TJ from ThatPhotographer.SG – Actual Day Wedding Photography to do it for you!
Anyway, to sum it up, this post is more than just about the photography. I also want to say true love does exist in this world. If not my sister would still be … :P.
Alright, thanks for reading. wait for my next post!
