Pre-Wedding Photoshoot at FRIM Kepong & LaFame Bridal Studio


Pre-Wedding Photoshoot at FRIM Kepong and LaFame Bridal Studio

Sneak peek photo by LaFame Bridal

Finally! We had our prewedding photoshoot done with the team from LaFame Bridal Studio in SS2.  Courtesy of LaFame, we were one of the lucky winner to win Lafame’s Best Couple Search Contest in conjunction of 1st anniversary. Thanks to the support from all my friends and family, we won an indoor photoshoot session and later decided to upgrade to include outdoor photoshoot session. Every couple who are planning to get married can read this post as I will share my experience and perhaps some helpful tips for you to get ready and find the right pre-wedding bridal house, including gown selection, make-up artist, photographers and things included in your package. 

People say I can shoot my prewedding because I am a photographer myself, I think I will able to do it too BUT it takes a lot of efforts and preparation to make it possible. I can't just use my #TCFisheye to do the #TCSelfie all the time right? Haha! If we travel alone, I can still depends on tripod to help use take group photo. Or else a stranger that is good in photography would do. BUT when it comes to pre-wedding photos, my experience told me that we need a team of people that are excel in what they are doing, which is to make your job easier while looking pretty in the photos.

In order to have a good pre-wedding photoshoot experience, you gotta keep these few things in mind. Suitable wedding gown(s) and suit(s) for bride and groom, makeup and hairdo for bride, who will be your photographer(s), locations to do outdoor and indoor photoshoot, and what do you get after complete the shoot. How many piece of photos and album you will get in return and etc.

Here's the current outlook of LaFame Bridal Mansion in SS2. We had our photoshoot early in the morning on a weekday as it will be less crowded in FRIM Kepong. Since we brought along our rabbit for the shot, it took us longer time to reach LaFame Bridal studio. You are advised to reach before 8am because traffic will build up quickly afterwards especially on LDP.

If you compare the amount of wedding gown for bride and suits for groom, there's a big difference for sure! There were much more choices for the bride to choose their favourite wedding dress including Western and Chinese style.

Luckily I found my size and color suit from this little corner. They have bow-ties and ties for you to match with your outfit. If you already have a tailor made suit, feel free to bring it for the photoshoot. After all, tailored suit confirm fits you better (unless you've gain/lose weight).

Get yourself a suitable flower bouquet for the photoshoot, we got it from @hanamichi_01
To be honest, I am pretty proud of what my fiance choose for the prewedding shoot. Since we have a red dress, she got herself a fbridal flower bouquet with a mixture of red and white dried flowers. Some may ask, "Why dry flowers"? Oh well, it doesn't necessary need to be fresh flower right? Even nicely preserved flower can still look pretty good and event stand out in your pre-wedding photos. At least that's the case for us, and we can reuse it if we want to.

Make-up artist of the day - SueAnn | LaFame Bridal Mansion
If you are a photographer, you'll know how important it is to have a good make-up artist. Thanks to SueAnn, my fiance look even better with the magical touch. If you didn't have a good makeup artist, it will be a lot of work for your photographer to do post-processing/photo-editing laterhahhaa. Just imagine, remove our imperfections one by one.


wedding bridal make-up in progress

How does it feels like when document down the precious moment of your love one? It makes me feel grateful and happy at the same time. At least that's what I felt. I am not sure about her hahaa!

Your make-up artist might take a photo of you for the 'complete artwork'

It took almost two hours to complete the makeup for her, and it took only a few minutes to touch me up hahaha. Immediately after complete the make-up, we made our way to FRIM Kepong for the outdoor photoshoot. Remember to stay on time because the later you go, the weather and lights gonna be harsh on you. Don't forget to bring insect repellent to prevent mosquitos AND leeches. Yeah, there are leeches in FRIM kepong. She caught one on her hand during the photoshoot.

Winz - Photographer of the day for us both outdoor and indoor
Winz - Photographer of the day for us both outdoor and indoor
Winz has been a pre-wedding photographer for years and he is pretty experienced in what he do. The photoshoot was done pretty quick with many poses and angles changes from time to time. He likes to ask couple to smile so I guess 95% of our photos is gonna be smiling/laughing shots. That's what I've observed as the model of the day. I've also learned how to pose as well. Don't squeeze your limbs and bend a bit at the joint, use flower to cover face and get very close to each other for that intimate shots. Overall, It was good experience while shooting with Winz, except I think sometimes we smile too much. I didn't manage to 假掰/装逼 too much in the photoshoot hahaha.

SueAnn, make-up artist followed along to help make sure the bride looks good in front of the camera  Since I am one of the model being shoot for the day, I barely have time to shoot my love on

Since I am one of the model being shoot for the day, I barely have time to photograph my love one.  I guess you just have to put all trust in your photographer and make-up artist, let them do the magic.  One big tips for you, just make sure you treat them well because they are the one that keeps you look at your best. As a photographer myself, mood does affect the picture quality, so do make sure each other are well hydrated and well feed after first session. Or else, it will be hard to go through the rest of the photoshoot sessions (or 3rd session) if someone burnt-up or tired.

That moment after we removed a leech from her hand in FRIM Kepong

We weren't near to the waterfall in FRIM Kepong, but if it was raining the day before, high chance that the leeches will wander around looking for 'fresh young blood'. The bride of the day was the lucky one to have a leech stick between her fingers. Luckily we found out earlier before the leeches manage to fill up its tummy. It's gonna be itchy at the bite mark even after the leech left.

Weather turns hotter after morning, so remember to arrive as early as possible

The sun getting higher, weather getting hotter, gotta untie my bow-tie so I can breath for a while.  I screwed myself for being late hahaha. I was sweating like pig and my white shirt already become see through. Oh ya, guys, get an innerwear like the one I got from Uniqlo. It will prevent your nipples accidentally exposed when you are soaking wet.

'Kesian' for bride as she was wearing long dress and need to carry it while slowly walking towards another shooting scene. That's the not-so-glamorous experience every bride gotta go through I guess? Thanks SueAnn for assist from time to time.

In total, we shoot in four different locations in FRIM Kepong. With the guidance from our photographer, I believe we have a lot different poses and angled photos for us to choose. We had a quick lunch nearby before go back to the studio, my energy level already half gone by that time hahhaa. Luckily the rest of the day was to do indoor photoshoot in LaFame Bridal Mansion with air-conditioner full blasted.

Feeling sleepy after lunch, but we gotta continue with our photoshoot

Finally we have our #RBBunny in some of the indoor photoshoot session. Bunny was nervous as he wasn't familiar with the surrounding yet. Anyhow, Bunny did a great job in keeping his eyes open HAHAHA. At least he don't need to smile.

For indoor photoshoot, we did three different background shoot including champagne at the bar, hanging out at the cafe and even lying on the floor and shoot from the top . Our photographer got asked if we wanted to shoot more with another outfit, but we both agreed that it should be enough already, hence we called it a day.

We are currently waiting for the magical touch by the photographer on our photos. We are going to drop by LaFame Bridal again to choose our preferred photos to be included in the photo album. Let's see how it turn out and I most probably might share it only after my wedding. Let's keep our finger crossed.

Thanks to the awesome team from LaFame Bridal Mansion SS2!
