What A Great Year!

It has been a great year for me to end with 30 international award winning pictures with two (2) first placing in two different categories in ISPWP (International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers) based in United States.

Yes it has been a hectic year for me managing a few companies at the same time trying to make all my clients happy. I have made several changes to the way I handle my wedding photography business. Competition in this industry is irrelevant to me now and I live in my own world serving my potential clients and existing clients who has been supportive of me throughout my whole 18 years career in wedding photography.

I have made several improvements and I could see the response and one of the things I love most is:-
1. a big turnaround in my "wedding reception" or "slideshow" presentation;
2. the investment in equipment that I put in;
3. serving my ex-clients and giving them goodies! (well, find out more if you are my ex-client);
4. working and selecting a few professional photographers to work with me for clients who have enough budget for their wedding day (sometimes I bring my student photographer along for on-site assignments).
5. last but not the least, I love going "solo" for my photography job (for budgeted clients). This year alone, I manage to return approximately 1500 images (in average) in high resolution images back to my clients. Why keep it? Best of all, my rejected rate for all images taken for an actual wedding day is only 3%. Sharp, clear and manage to capture the moment, be it at the wedding ceremony, the church or temple and wedding reception.

I sincerely hope next year will be another great year, not just for me but for all readers who visit my web blog once a while. Thanks and wishing all of you a wonderful New Year in 2012. Adios!

Engagement Photography (Batu Caves, Selangor)

My client booked me about a month ago before their Engagement Ceremony at Batu Caves. It is the first time I am capturing the engagement wedding for this couple in this wonderful worship place with Lord Murugan statue standing at 140ft (42.7m) in height!

The only request from my client prior to this posting is that they do not like their photo to be posted in my web blog as the groom is a shy person! Well, here is it! These images that you see here are taken at the ceremony without the Bride & Groom in it! As we can see here, pictures do tell a thousand words... even without the main couple in the following images.

Who Took These Images in This Web Blog ?

I have been constantly asked who took all these images in web blog? The answer is ME! Although I have other team members who acted as the main or 2nd back-up photographer, I have been constantly posting these images that you see in this web blog by myself in for several years now.

There is one reason why he/she asked me this question. There are many wedding photography studios or companies that I know engages freelancers for their clients wedding photography assignment. Of course, the sample images shown to the client at the company was taken by another photographer The results ends up in disaster! Yes, it was well taken and of course, news spreads and their friends avoids wedding company whom they do not know who is the photographer in the first hand.

The other question is who won all those 30 International Awards competition overseas? Well, the answer is... ME again!

Thirdly, another one good question asked by the client was : how do I know if the photographer is good? someone whom I can rely on for my actual day wedding photography? First of all, check out their work especially those taken during wedding dinners or reception. Those you must take note was images taken in the ballroom such as Sunway Lagoon Resort Hotel Ballroom, Berjaya Hotel Ballroom at Times Square or Klang Centro "Grand Imperial" Ballroom. Many beginners or amateur photographers avoids showing the wedding reception images as they know very well that if the images was badly taken, it can be shown easily by looking at (a) the color (b) composition (c) the whole scene/scenario at the wedding event.

Sometimes pricing does play a role in it. I love being solo for most of my wedding assignments as I try to save more for my client. It does not mean having 2 photographer could do more or could capture more amazing shots! If you think that way, you are wrong! One photographer will do provided that he can do 2 photographer's job. Yes, that's what I am good at and I have been doing that for the past 17 years!

So, choose your actual day photographer wisely. If you need two or 3 photographers for your wedding day, check your photographer's background first before checking if you have enough budget. Its a once-in-a-lifetime affair and pictures do tell a thousand words.
