Why wear the wedding ring on the 4th finger?

We have some couples asking us why they should wear their wedding ring on the forth finger. Honestly, we didn’t know the answer till we come across this short clip. How enlightening. :)

Let’s put our hands together for the bride and groom!

After several rounds of ‘tests’, it is proven that the days of clear march-in aisles during church weddings and wedding banquets are gone with the introduction of cheap digital photography.

Consider putting your hands together to welcome and encourage the couple instead? Leave the photography to us.

This not only allow us as the official photographers to get the best shots with lesser obstructions, it also helps to create a more appealing background (without non official photographers) shooting directly opposite the frame.

We always feel that great memories of the couples are best remembered when everyone are there to give their heartfelt blessings instead of holding up the camera for most parts of the celebration.

We tend to be as unobstrusive as possible while covering the ceremonies so as to provide minimum distraction to the couple and the guests. By having more unofficial photographers hovering around the couple during ceremonies, it not only distract the couple, they might be blocking the views of other guests who are eager to view the ceremony from their seats.

So give it a thought the next time you decide to go around taking pictures during a ceremony.

Auld Lang Syne. Good Bye 2012 and Hello 2013

What a year for us and it simply just blew past quickly. A lot of things happened during this year with a good share of ups and downs.

One of the most significant event is our transition to start anew from 1950 Photography to TOP Photography just barely 3 months ago. That allowed to continue our more effective emphasis on our philosophy to create simple, real and honest images in our wedding photography with literally no posing.

Being in the industry for over 7 years, we had been through periods when certain trends in photography were popular and extremely sellable. However, we stuck on to our principles and philosophies and to not follow the trends for the sake of selling our services (we did the same this year). It always seemed like we are moving against the flow and it can test our faith at times but we are happy to have couples who believed in what we do to engage us. We’ll like to thank all of you (you know who you are) for that!

Looking forward in 2013, we are going to offer better coverages of weddings with 2 photographers. That will also allow us to create images which do not just tell stories but with even better aesthetics. Also expect our plans for overseas bridal shoots along the way. There will also be new tie ups with industry vendors so as to offer a more comprehensive experience for our customers.

So 2013 is a year to look forward to with TOP Photography taking off in fuller swing. We thank you once again for your support in the past months while we face the challenges to kick-start TOP Photography and we hope 2013 will be even better for everyone!

Here’s wishing everyone a HAPPY 2013!

Best Wishes from the TOP Photography Team

Popcorn Station at Wedding Reception

We all love popcorns.  Here, we were expecting the kids to visit the popcorn bar during the wedding reception but we were wrong.

With all due professionalism, we tried a handful of these popcorns and they really tasted great!  A good sweet treat after working real hard in the day at Hotel Intercontinental Singapore.

Moments in Wedding Day Photography?

“Moments”.  A very common term used by photographers (both journalistic and traditional) all round the world.

Here in this simple article, we hope to set you thinking about what you consider as moments that matters to you on your wedding day.

First of all, give yourself a few minutes to think about your perception of moments in wedding day photography.  If that sounds too technical, try thinking about what you would like your wedding day photos to show.  *Tick tock tick tock…take your time and don’t read on till you are done with this part*

Next think about how these photographed moments will piece together and how it will let you recall the memories of your wedding day.

Does it help you recall the time when your parents come peeping into your room when you were being dolled up by your makeup artist?  Does it help you recall how you actually felt when you finally get to see each other through the opened door after the gatecrash session?   Does it help you recall the spontaneous hug that your parents gave you that day even though they have never shown their emotional side all these years?  Does it help you recall how your bridesmaids flock in spontaneously to help you with your wedding gown when you needed them around?

Now picture yourself in the photos of these scenes.  Would you like to recall them as genuine moments of your loved ones coming to you in the most sincere manner?  Or would you like to recall the memories of your photographer directing you and your loved ones to enact the scenes to get each of the great shots?

We shall leave you to draw your conclusions and views from here, but we do hope it sets you in looking beyond the aesthetics in wedding day photography and towards looking into the meaning of it all again.

Actual Day Wedding of Stephen & Sharon

We had a great time covering Stephen & Sharon wedding at Orchard Hotel. In actual fact, this was their 3rd leg of their wedding marathon celebration. They had their church wedding done in Australia, followed by a traditional Indian wedding ceremony in Singapore (just a day before their actual day wedding). Sharon is an awesome dancer based in Australia and she got to know Stephen as anyone could have guess it, is a student of hers. Sharon’s dad, Pakir Singh is a humorous guy. Whenever he speaks, you can hear laughters and smiles. During the speech by Sharon’s mum, she mentioned that Pakir Singh dotes on Sharon alot. Personally, I can feel and see it as his eyes welled with tears during the tea-ceremony as he looked at Sharon.

Now here are a couple of images to share from this wonderful wedding. Expect more to come soon in our facebook page.

Our heartfelt wishes of bliss to you, Stephen & Sharon!!!

Local Pre-Wedding of Anthony & Dijia

Time and again when you get to flip the pre-wedding albums of others, you might be able to recognise the locations where the shot was taken and relate it to another couple’s shot done at the same spot.  Not to skive on our work, but at some wedding day photography shoots, we observed how some friends or relatives stop at the album to guess where the shots were taken.  Even for pre-wedding done overseas, many can even recognise the little blue boat house in Perth already!
 
We’ve been getting alot of requests to shoot couples’ pre-weddings at popular local locations like Marina Barage, Gardens by the Bay, Botanic Gardens and Fullerton area.  But for this shoot for Anthony and Dijia, we’ve decided to avoid those places totally.  We looked for the forgotten corners of Singapore as the background of the shoot, convinced our dear couple to shoot there and off we go.
 
At the end of the day, we were unable to cover all the locations we have in mind but the end results is still as nostalgic as it can get.
 
Here are 2 shots of them at a location which holds lots of our childhood memories.  No prize for guessing where it is though.  ;)

Solemnisation ROM of Mike and Winnie

What a wonderful shoot we had for Mike and Winnie at Orchid Country Club! We’ve got a pleasant surprise when we saw the venue decorated with lots and lots of tennis related props. From tennis rackets (vintage and new), tennis balls, net and little motifs, one look and you know they’ve got a tennis themed for their solemnisation reception. A buggy and dance march in highlighted the event.

Here is just one image to tease. We promise more images later.
