*This is going to be a long post with no pictures*
As some of you might already know, i went for my bridal photography yesterday, one of the most anticipating event of the year, lol. finally, we were done with all the photo shooting, i can now sleep soundly without worrying anymore =)
of course it was very tiring. shooting started from about 10am until 7pm++. thank god the weather was just nice when we did our outdoor photo shooting.
overall, i'm very satisfy with the make up and hair styles. Mee Khoon did a great job! ;)
Last week, i called up a photographer, Calim, from super cultural.com, i was introduced to him through my colleague, who had had his wedding in June this year. my intial plan was to inqure about videography for my wedding day in March. he then explained further saying that he can do a MTV for me during my photo shooting day, and it's only RM 50 for the whole day. he said his company is the ONLY company that FT accepted for videography. the price surprised me, so why not? so i thought we had a deal and will be seeing each other during the shooting day.
on Tuesday, he called again to re-confirm the time with me, and he told me he would liaise with FT side, on the video making and so on. Calim seems to be a nice guy (through phone). but my perception towards him changed after a few minutes, when he called me again, asking me is it possible to cancel the MTV?? reason given is, he found out that there's another couple who will shoot at the same time and at the same outdoor venue as me, and they dint bring any video man with them. so if i were to carry on the video making with Calim, then it's difficult for him to explain to the other couple.
seems like there's no other alternatives but to cancel the MTV. i straight away wrote them a complaint email right after hung up. it was such a disappointment to me, as i'm very looking forward to this photography session, as well as the MTV. imagine i came to know about this only on a day right before my actual photography session. as a soon-to-be-bride, i was very upset and disappointed. why dint they arrange things properly in the first place and simply promised me about the MTV?
i mentioned this to the consultant(Justina) at FT and surprisingly, she also had a bad encounter with Calim last month, he promised to deliver her wedding videos but until now, no news at all.
thats not all, what even surprised me was, Justina told me that FT Penang management dont allow any outsider to take any video of the making. so, what did this Calim promised me? what the hell is he doing?!
now, i strongly believe i'll need to think twice before negotiating further with him about the videography during my wedding day. or better still, i might as well look for other video man....
