I was very honoured to be introduced by STYLR to Dolce2Dolce for this Cost Cutting project.

We wanted to know how much it would really cost for a simple photoshoot. 02

On average, a photoshoot will have 3 gowns. It consists of 1 white gown and 2 evening gowns.

Most bridal studio will restrict on which gown you can bring out or even which design you could choose.

Some say, Designer gown needs top up.

Some say white gown cannot bring outdoor.

But….. It’s a once in a lifetime event! Why restrict yourselves?

Go for something you like!

We went to Terminal 3 for this Escalator.

Why this Escalator?

1) Very little people using.

2) The speed is relatively slow compared to others.

3) The view is great! 04

We tried a lot of times to get this right.

I loved my curls and it matched my gown very well. 11Tadah.. Last photo and goodbye MBS.


Ger’z Shares:

Doing an ala carte photoshoot all by yourself is not an easy job to be honest.

But the sense of satisfaction you get when you see your photos turn out to be so pretty is PRICELESS~!

Indeed we did cut cost by sourcing our own Gown vendors, bridal shoes, own make up artist.

But the time spent and what if they are no good? So thats why online reviews are important.

Go for trustable vendors for your wedding. Don’t just go for cheap but they must be good.

Go Ask around. Like for example, Celine was highly recommended by my reader.

Her good reviews are all over the net and most importantly whenever I see someone asking for MUA recommendation, Celine name confirm pop-up at least twice!

Do it once, Do it right!

Do your homework well and you wont regret!

Go Enjoy your wedding photoshoot ~!

Anything just Facebook me, email me, or leave a comment.

Ger’z World will always be here to help!
