Coney Island PreWedding Photography
Sometimes couples ask us if they can bring their pet along for their pre-wedding shoot. And our reaction will be, Why Not? What we want to do is to capture your story, your memories. For Sam and Hazel’s dog, Kimchi, he was such a well-behaved and cooperative dog! He looked like he had as much fun as Sam and Hazel during the shoot too! You might be keen to know that we’ve previously had a chihuahua, rabbit, and a colourful parrot at shoots, so we are open to all! 🙂
On the day of the shoot itself, we were all pretty concerned about whether it would rain in the morning, and we even had a Plan B in mind, but we decided to just go for it. Lo and behold, when we reached the carpark near Punggol Jetty, it started to drizzle! Out came our umbrellas as we took the 15-minute walk to Coney Island and hid in the shelter. Thankfully, after about 20 minutes, the rain stopped and we had almost the entire island to ourselves! Best part was, the weather remained cool throughout which contributed to the great overall experience we all had! 🙂

The Most Awesome Wedding Photographers Ever!
We got to know Awesome Memories Photography through our couple friend who had their pre-wedding and actual day wedding photos taken by Alvin and Michelle. We were impressed by the candid and emotionally authentic aesthetic of their images and decided to get in touch with them.
From the first meeting with Alvin and Michelle, we knew right off the bat that they were the photographers for us. They impressed us with their patience (they took the time – 3 hours – to listen to our love story in its entirety), their meticulousness (they jotted down details of things we said, which, they later used to piece together a narrative for our pictures), and their passion for wedding photography i.e. capturing a couple’s love story.
We were really pleased that the extent of their personalised service did not just end at our first meet-up, but they provided personalised service throughout our journey with them! Alvin and Michelle were always ready to share their advice, tips, and recommendations for vendors throughout our wedding planning process. They were always open to ideas and suggestions and took us seriously as we deliberated over options together. They were so willing about letting us bring our little pup to the pre-wedding shoot!
For a couple as awkward as us in front of the camera, they worked with us patiently, always shooting from a comfortable distance so that they captured natural “real” moments between us. In other words, there are no unnecessary NGs or retakes with Alvin and Michelle. They strove to capture the moment as it passes, so that they do not disrupt the magical moments you share with your significant other in the process of the shoot. It is definitely helpful that they are a two-person team, because this means that you’ll have two different angles to your memories! Their price point for two photographers was so attractive we could not resist!
Needless to say, our prewedding and actual day photos turned out fabulous and we are so glad that we engaged their services…and gained two new friends!
