So now, let us begin our Journey to Taiwan!
We booked a midnight flight to Taiwan via Jetstar! We thought we could enjoy a good rest but we are wrong, we should have add extra $ for extra leg room so we could enjoy some good sleep.
4hrs later at around 6am+…..
We reached TAIWAN Taoyuan International Airport! Afterwhich we took a bus to Taipei Bus station which allows us to Cab to Lishe.
After a 45mins bus ride, we arrived at Taipei Bus Terminal Station. The bus ride is quite comfy as we both fell asleep and manage to catch up with sleep that was loss in the plane.
After we deposit our luggage at the hotel, we went for a breakfast nearby. This breakfast outlet is highly recommended by the receptionist at the hotel counter. The food was really delicious and it is only TWD25! Amazing right? With just $1 SGD, you get a cup of Soya Milk, 2 sunny side up and a bun! Try finding this in Singapore.
Lishe is located at 爱国东路，婚纱街。You can mention to taxi uncle you wanna go Lishe and they will bring you here. 麗舍時尚婚紗 is such a popular choice among locals and a lot of family will visit them for Family Photoshoot too. I am sure I am going to go back for my family shoot too! This is the parade square of Chiang Kai-Shiek Memorial Hall.
We had a walk at Xi Men Ding which is nearby our hotel @ NeiJiang Street. It is opposite a helmet shop. Just FYI, if you choose to sign a package with Lishe, most probably you will stay in the same hotel as us. Hotel name: NeiJiang Hotel . It is only a 2 to 3 star hotel but it is very big and the toilet is very clean. They also provide daily breakfast for free so you can save even more money! Breakfast includes: Egg Sandwiches and Grape Juice
The next morning, we reported at 8am for make up and all. For more details on behind-the-scene and make up, read this blog post instead.
First Location: Chiang Kai-Shiek Memorial Hall
We wanted to take photos of flowers and something greenery and something iconic with building etc. So King Sir (Photographer) suggested us to cross the street opposite to CKS Memorial Hall to take a few shots! Initially I was quite skeptical with how the photos will turn out but he showed me immediately using his camera right after the first few shots.
He asked: 你们喜欢吗？
We replied: Oh my god! 很漂亮哟！
Second Location: Taipei 101
Let the photos do the talking! How was it? Nice isn’t it? All these photos are raw with no edits. Absolutely no edits at all!
Look at my leg! It is very long right? Because I told him, I wanna to look like I have very long legs. Haha!
Therefore King Sir brought us to BeiTou and we are quite impress with the amazing scenery and photos he can actually produce.
FYI, the first photo of me holding the Flower Bouquet high up is actually taken in a drain beside the road side. King Sir actually pulled over and told us to get down to take a photo here.
That is why I like Taiwan Photographers they are willing to get down to their kneels, get themselves dirty just to capture a nice photo for us. He is willing to get wet with us and go all the way for us. We really appreciate his professionalism!
King Sir 你好棒！
Fourth Location: Yang Ming Shan 阳明山
The view and scenery is so awesome. But first let me take a selfie. I love Lishe dress so much that I wish I could wear it on my actual day. Seriously speaking, I am weighing 50kg at that point of time (Currently 40kg) and wearing a TOGA dress will make me look like an hercules. It looks as if I got super big arms and I look super masculine. But look below!
Do I look MASCULINE? Nope!
This photos are non-edited! I swear it is not edited in any way or another!
It look so perfect…. That’s why you should pick a Taiwan Photographer! They make you look good at any point of angle!
Frankly speaking the sky in Taiwan is so blue, the grass is so green. I am not sure why. Maybe it is at a mountain? It is far away from City and factories so that is why the scenery is so awesome? Probably!
Fifth Location: Horse Stable
No. 36, Alley 33, Lane 280, Danhai Rd, Danshui District New Taipei City, Taiwan 251
They don’t charge entrance fee but rental of horse will cost. Please inform them early if you must take a photo with the horse. Because they need to book in advance and also White Horse is limited.
I was quite sad initially about having to ride a black horse because all girls wants a Prince Charming to rescue them. Prince Charming in Chinese is 白马王子 Direct translation: White Horse Prince . Lols.
Our horse name is JASON! Jason is a very tame, nice and cute horse. He is so photogenic! He always look into the camera without much fuss. So if you go Taiwan Horse Stable, you might want to mention Jason!
Just FYI, the photo of the Just Married is only taken using ONE SHOT! Yes! One single shot only!
Sixth Location: Nearby Beach at Danshui
There is like 6 other couples doing their shoot at the same time with us. Luckily there isn’t any photobombs. lols.
Anyway, the other couples have props like balloons, LOVE signs and all that. But we chose to go without them for a more natural look. I mean, it is Taiwan. We are here in Taiwan for the nature scenery not for the props isn’t it?
Look at the sunset. Ain’t it pretty? I am mesmerised with the pretty nice egg yolk we have!
I love the colours in the photos. The orange sunset, the colour of my lime-green gown and also the reflections we seen on the sand. How pretty they are? This is something that we have been always looking for. This kind of nature style.
You might be thinking…
Oh no! Gerlyn dirtied their gown.. Would she need to pay?
Of course not! Not to worry, Lishe won’t charge for dirtying but they will charge if you damage their gown. But how can you possibly damage them if your Make Up Artist helps you put them on?
Can you find this in Singapore? If you do, let me know and I will redo my shoot in Singapore *AGAIN*!
I like King Sir’s creativity and his photography skills. It is definitely my style.
I like Joyce being my make up artist too. She is caring, thoughtful and nice. After walking on the sands and seawater, Joyce actually helps me wash my feet before I wear my shoes again. She also helps me to wear my heels and helps me to wear my NUBRA! I am serious! She is so meticulous.
Seventh Location: STUDIO
Why studio? You must be wondering…. Because.. I planned a surprise celebration for Mr Casper Kat!
So King Sir actually is my accomplice. Both of us trick Casper into the studio because he was quite tired and reluctant to join us for the last shoot already. At first, his face was very black because he said:
I like the studio backdrop alot because it gave me a homely feel unlike other photoshoot I have previously.
The next day…….
We took some fun shot with King Sir and his Assistant Xiao Yang.
Anyway TIME FOR REVIEW!!!
