We found our photographer for Singapore and Malaysia!

You know the feeling. The feeling that "yes, this is right". The buzz and excitement that you experience when it's exactly what you want. Yes, we found our wedding photographer for Singapore/Malaysia.

I admired his photography skills ever since he took Kitson and Irene's (my aunt) pre wedding photos 5 years ago. AR saw his work on actual day photography, turned to me and said "that's exactly what we want!". However, we didn't want to commit till we meet up with him. After all, his photos may be terrific but if we feel uncomfortable with him, it would be impossible to work with him on the actual day(s).

So when Kelvin wrote on his blog that he will be coming down to Perth, I grabbed that chance to arrange a meeting with him. Kelvin and Beth's down to earth manner made us feel comfortable straight away. It was a pleasure to meet this couple and their little girl. More so, it was lovely to see a person passionate about his work. Kelvin took time to explain to us how his style evolved over the past few years and his philosophy in photography. Did I mention that he is on a holiday-work trip? Technically, work doesn't began for him till later this week but he took time out to speak to us. A gesture that we really appreciate.

If you are interested, have a look here and here.

So that's done. One thing off our list. Thanks Irene for the recommendation. =)

PS-yes, we have done our research. Obviously Kelvin wasn't the only photographer that we conversed with but even after the process of elimination,pros and cons....the decision was clear. oh! and no, we are not advertising for them. We are just excited and happy that we found the photographer that we want! woohoo!!!

I was really fussy about my wedding pics too, and rightfully so, coz these are memories for life. I agree that it's important to be comfortable with the photographer. I had the privilege of working with a great wedding photographer once, and I observed that his camaraderie with the couple and the entourage made all the difference. They smiled, they laughed, and they were completely at ease which resulted in really great pictures.
