It started with me wanting to get a separate photographer instead of getting a photographer from a bridal studio since I have been reading a lot of horror stories in the forum and I don’t really like my wedding to go that way. And also being am amateur photographer, I prefer to choose my own photographer based on their blogs rather than trusting those photo albums from the bridal studio and commercialised website.
Since we all know that bridal studios love to earn a great amount of money out of every wedding couple by tempting them to buy more photos for their album, when each photo don’t come cheap, we decided there was probably no point in going with a bridal studio. A one time visit to a wedding show and the whole hard-selling tactics just tired us more than get us interested. Not forgetting we have to bargain if we really want to go with a bridal studio. And of ‘cos there are the crafty ones that will make sure you don’t see the little details they didn’t write in the contract!
Not wanting to go through this tiring and maybe worrying process, we decided to go ala-carte. We probably trust ourselves most than anyone else out there when it comes to our wedding. We really want to look for people who have the passion to create a magical wedding for us, rather than people who only wants to earn our hard-earned money. So the spamming of email starts and after some visiting, here is the list of Our Genies!
