Ok, if you’ve read my previous post, you should now know how to find a good wedding photographer in Singapore for your pre-wedding photo shoot or perhaps even actual day photography. However, what happens next? Do you simply wait until the shoot day before confirming anything and do you need to pay anything upfront? Here, in this post, I seek to share the common answers to these commonly asked questions by soon-to-be brides and grooms.
Question 1: Do I have to pay anything up front? And if so, how much?
Answer 1: Usually, most wedding photographers in Singapore would require you to put a deposit of around 20 to 50% of the overall price that you would need to pay for their services. This deposit will be treated as a guaranteed booked timeslot on the photographer’s or studio’s schedule as well.
Question 2: What happens next? Do I have to contact the photographer nearer to the wedding date?
Answer 2: Under most circumstances, you do not actually have to contact the photographer himself or herself. He or she should know that your shoot is coming up and might even automatically send you a reminder. However, if you’re worried, simply drop him a call, email or SMS.
Question 3: How does he know who to take more photos of at the wedding ceremony? There are so many guests!
Answer 3: In the event that he or she does not instruct you to do so beforehand, I would highly advise you to appoint someone in the guest list (either a family or friend) who is very familiar with most people who will be at the wedding ceremony. The appointed person would then point out to the photographer any important people in your spouse’s and your life so that the photographer can take more photographs of these people whom you’re more intimate to.
Question 4: Is there anything else I need to know about pre-wedding or AD photography in Singapore?
Answer 4: When it comes to Singapore photography services, as long as you have engaged the right photographer like how I recommend you find one in my last post, you should do just fine and they’ll tell you everything you need to know in advance (very little actually, all are mentioned above).
