As what I had mentioned in my previous post, last Saturday the both of us went to Pameran Perkahwinan at Midvalley Exhibition Centre just to check out how it is. We have been to previous pameran but it was a let down so we didn’t put (well maybe I didn’t put) much hope for this time round but I was wrong..it was worth going there and it was packed with people..Mcm bes je tgk because those who went there sumenye ada target yg sama, nak survey pape yg patut for their big day..ada yg bakal bertunang, ada yg bakal berkahwin..mcm sweet je tgk memasing jln dengan kapel memasing hehe..(mcm ckp pasal diri sendiri nampak!)

Kitorang pn mcm blur2 gak coz we dun exactly know what to look for since we didn’t have any tentative month or date to inform people if we’re interested in their services but our target on that day was to look for either wedding cards, door gifts or wedding boutiques that offered baju Jawa..u know mcm stail Ning Baizura pakai tuu.. tang baju tu ada mmg la ada dah Jovian himself had his booth there AND the said baju was there on display tp sungguh la daku tade duit utk menggunakan perkhidmatan die hehe. His promo for the exhibition was RM500 off for all of his packages, tak kesah la ko nak wat baju nikah saje ke, nak buat persalinan tuk dedue org ke, he can design ur clothes there and then..tp kalo mampu bagus la..kalo tak mampu takat jadi jakun la mcm “eh2 tu Jovian la” hahah..and the good catch was that he collaborated together with Candid Syndrome. Who doesn’t know them right? I didn’t really pay much attention to what was the package all about but what I know is if u picked one of the selected packages, u also will have them as ur official photographer for ur particular event.

So we headed on to other available booths, ada la satu dua yg menarik perhatian for the wedding cards and door gifts..but we’re still putting it as KIV. Nanti la next year in January baru start bebetul because tentatively I think my big day will be in May 2009..but then one thing for sure, whatever that u decide to do whether its menempah baju, menempah kad, menempah photographer, ALWAYS BOOK WITH THEM 4 MONTHS BEFORE YOUR WEDDING DATE.  

Ok now here’s the juicy part of the story! We were heading out from the exhibition centre thinking that ok, we’ve done our survey let’s just head out but then tetibe je at the exit point I said to him “eh yang..bleh tak u pegi jap kat booth Candid tuu and amik a few brochures from there, I tunggu kat cni eh..” tetibe je tau bcoz sebenarnya daku dah ada pilihan sendiri utk photographer so mcm tak tergerak ati pon nak tgk keje org lain EGO la katekan. So he headed off la blur2 je mana la booth awek aku ckp ni (sedangkan its so obvious depan mata die), tgk die jalan lambat sgt, I followed him rather than menunggu kat exit tu. Skali u know what happened? We ended up sitting at the booth and we decided to hire them for our pre-wedding outdoor photoshoot.

Actually their prices are very reasonable during the promo, they too dropped RM500 from their actual price, ikutkan ati mmg la lagi senang amik one shot je from akad nikah-reception-bertandang but ya ampun venue ku di Penang yaa..harap maklum, nak sediakan flight tickets and accomodation lagi sungguh la lari dari bajetku..and then some more bertandang at his side will be very d simple, sgt tak berbaloi for us to hire a big shot name to take pictures of us. .Hehe mmg sgt simple la..ni bukan penghinaan kat belah tunangku ye, it’s a fact which he too agrees bcoz the scenario will be like this. Kompang starts, pengantin jln dlm 10 langkah, pegi kat pelamin for like less than 10min, kuarga terdekat merenjis, then jln tak sampai 5 langkah pegi kat meja mkn beradap and dats it..haha soo tak berbaloi kan?

So while I still contemplate on which photographer to take for the reception on my side, we decided to take the pre-wedding outdoor package, so takyah ada official photographer at his side. Tadaaa..walaupun tatau lagi bile nak kawinnya but the session will take place most probably in March/April 2009..

Now I need ur help. Pre-wedding shoot is up to the client, the venue, the dressing is all up to us. They will just snap2 our pics during the 3-4hrs duration. I haven’t decided on which photographer to take and the venue.

Here are the things I need u guys to help me out:

1. Could u please go to their official website –> look for their senior photographers ( I think there’s about 6 of them) –> look through their work and feel free to comment which u think has the best quality of work.

2. Venue – it has to be outdoor for sure, and it has to be within the KL-Selangor radius, tanak la p jejauh sgt. I dun want the typical sawah padi but I dun mind the sea or any taman. My venue in mind is Taman Tasik Perdana..what do u think?

3. Attire – do u think I should wear the traditional Malay wedding dress(baju nikah, songket, or maybe Jawa attire) or should I just dress down? I was thinking to just wear kebaya Nyonya je..senang sket panas2 terik camtu..after all it’s pre-wedding tatau pon baju dah siap ke blum hehehe

I know it’s still far away..but then I’m the type of person who plans well in advance. Bile senang dpt gambaran, senang nak plan..senang  nak carik baju, senang nak jaga badan lagi hehehe..thanks eh people

    i’d rather pick a place where it bears significance. Not just some cookie-cutter place where 100 other pengantin dah pose kat sane. Pick a place that is special to both of you.
    Taman Tasik Perdana has been there for years and prolly will be there another 100 years.

    agree with sha, try tempat yg unik. buat dlm bandar. bintang walk perhaps. hire ja sapa sapa pun semuanya dasat dasat dlm candidsyndom. they all experience photographer can take what ever condition / places to make a good picture..

    hah,candid syndrom kite gune time tunang…best! tp sbb die xde video skali, tu yg x amik utk kawin.

    anyway, pasal senior photographer tu klu tak dpt yg senior2, yg betul2 seniornye..jay tu pun ok..die shoot utk i..lagi 1 shafiq, ok gak…

    one of my friend in perth, miza gak namanye..amik pics outdoor theme saloma, pramlee..die shoot kt bangunan lama2 ni. die gune candid syndrome gak.

    if i were in ur place, since me & tunang ku suke bnda2 outdoor, kami akan ke hutan mane2, and pki baju camping je..hahaha..

    i tgk syahrin aziz, ada client die suke motor2 besar ni, die panggil gang2 motor die berkumpul dgn motor masing2, kt atas jln tar je…

    so, u kena tau ape theme u???

    bape harga utk package tu ek? ingat xnk amik pre nye..xleh nk peluk2…amik post-wedding…hahaha ;p

    hehehe farah..yg kat penang tu i dun need to look further..
    tu si husaini tu..hehe he is my fren in penang, a wedding fotographer gak..u gi tgk fotopages die mana nak tau u nak guna die utk ur bertandang nanti…im still putting him under KIV..saje nak bikin die saspen hahaha

    haaa mat tak pepasai aku dok promote hang punya service plak ni, kene bagi komisen lagi lebeh ni

    pasal taman tasik perdana tu yeah i realise mmg common tp at dat time i wasnt really putting my thinking cap on

    ckp pasal motor besar : my tunang is so in love with harley davidson..die dok suggest nak amik kat NAZA WORLD je haha tp mana leh coz i dun like harley..superbike takpe, harley tanak haha

    pastu ingat nak amik kat port coz dats where we have something in common, we all kenal masa both dlm shipping company, shipping industry tp port bahaya la pulokk dgn container dgn lorry dgn crane ape sume cukup..some more westport and northport tak menarik perhatian sgt..kalo tanjung pelepas takpe gak haha

    so tu la..back to square one..blur gile ni..nasib la next year baru nak wat pre wed tu..

    Hai mieza…thanks for drop by my blog😀

    Tu la kan…kite same, kawen lmbt lg..tp dah mau servey2..hehe jd pening kapala nak pilih. Ade member kite, siap dah booking utk baju, pelamin, catering…hehe. Semua nak grab harga promosikan.

    Utk photog2 CS tu, mmg berbaloi ambik dorang. Jay pon ok..mukriz ok gak..ke u nak SN?😀 Kalau utk tempat tu, cari yg lain dari lain. Mcm bintang walk ok..kalau nak buat shopping mall..u kene ambik permit dulu (i have an exprienced here :D) ladang kat UPM ade…pastu kat kuala selagor pon ade tempat yg menarik..takpon, masuk dlm laut la lagi unik😀 hehehe
    Bab ittire tu, ikut kesusaian dan citarasa sendri…

    hello, thanks for dropping by…

    i think any sort of place will do….mcm kat belakang alley ke, artistic sket….but no matter where it is, u’ve chosen d right photog, so the pictures will turn out lovely nonetheless, no worries there….

    keep in touch, babe…
