    Went for the 2nd fitting on a Sunday and Sher (MUA) told me the photographer assigned to me is available and he can come over to have a chat with us, his name is Jeffrey. I believe she said he's nearby at Le Grand studio since they are kind of affiliated to each other. Z & Le grand is just 2-3 unit away from each other....

    So he popped by and I don't feel his proactiveness and service oriented. When we suggested places he just say "ok anywhere you wish"....I was abit worried since then. On the actual photoshoot day, we arrived at CL studio at 10am. Makeup, hair will take about 1 hr by Sher. I think the fake eyelash on me is abit too long and perhaps due to lighting effect, I don't look like myself! Btw as u may kw, my package is exclude ampoule & eyelash so I hv to pay Sher in cash on that day. Sher says Jeffrey is one of the most long service photographer with CL team. (well to me, skill is more important than long service)

    So Jeffrey arrived at abt 11am to get the props ready. And he hand to me a fresh bouquet of flowers so I tried to strike a conversation with him and said "this flowers looks nice" and he replied to me this golden unforgettable line "yesterday's flower is much nicer" ... ... ... Can I flare up or not?! I dun wan to hurt my mood so I just kept quiet.

    So we went through the whole shooting, he will tell us what to do, how to pose and if I don't understand he will demonstrate. Either I don't understand him or his explanation is not fantastic somehow sometimes he sounded unpatient. I regret not voicing that I want more photos taken at that room with black & white tiles so for each spot we took abt 20 mins and left for another spot. So if you girls like that background do rem to voice out to your photographer.

    At the end of the day which end ard 5+ we head back to Z studio to unchange. When I enter, there's only one staff there and nobody attend to me as if I know what to do. I have to tell the girl that I want to unchange. She didn't help me at all, luckily I had a fren w me. If I didn't return the ear ring the gal probably won't know too!

    Over dinner we felt that Jeffrey overall is OK, just doing his job and completing SOP. Perhaps it is his style that he doesn't feel e need to create a "one day one time" client relationship so we don't interact much. He doesn't ask much abt us in fact he ask nothing, my HTB asked then he says he is from JB and with CL for almost 10 yrs.

    I am really not sure how the wedding industry work, and how they grade photographer seniority. In my opinion, if you are a clerk for 10 yrs, then its just 10 yrs of doing a job as a clerk only.

    If you check out in Chris Ling website, they are now partnering with not only Z and Le Grand, there's some other bridal boutiques too. So u don't hv to choose to use Z in order to use CL studio. As for photographer, what I understand is that if you wan advanced/senior photographer, extra fee to pay. But then again, are you be able to differentiate/appreciate/tell the difference between junior and senior one? Because after adding effects, they just look the same in our eyes unless you know the art of photograhy. Unless in this industry, paying $3388 and $5888 gives different effects.. then this is the difference.

    Going to select our photos in mid June...update by then.
    It seems like yr experience with them is not a very fantastic one. I'm thinking if i were to sign up and gotten Jeff, will it be possible to change to another photographer?

    Hi olafsnackjp,

    I just went for my 1st apptm with z-wedding for the gown selections, can i ask if we have to confirm all selections for AD and PS during that 1st apptm which is just about 4 hrs?! Got a bit stressed out when they kept asking me for confirmations when I could not decide!! Realised I should hv done more "homework" to hv some ideas what I want before attending the 1st fitting apptm..!!

    Btw, can share where did you go for your outdoor PS?

    Hey mrs_superman

    I m not saying Jeff is not good, in fact who am I to say he is not good? All photos look the same in my eyes... Its just that he is not interactive, chirppy or be funny that sort of person. But he's not sloppy in his work. If you gotten Jeff and wanted to change, definitely the coordinator will ask you why so you must be able to defend yourself.

    Hi jesscml

    Usually 1st fitting will need to confirm on all e gowns so that alterations can be made b4 your 2nd fitting which is usually few days b4 your photoshoot day. So u c, the timing is quite tight. Ya I took abt 4 hrs too, from 1pm and I left 4+ but I manage to decide all the gowns that time. Firstly because I chose Z because of the actual day wedding gown so on the 1st fitting as long as I can fit in and it suit my image & style, I chose that gown already.

    Then for evening gown and short skirt, they hv filter out unsuitable ones so mostly the range they gave to me are accordin to my style. Well you kw, they are so experienced veterans in this industry that perhaps from your body shape, your looks, image, the way you speak you dress, they can tell what sort of person you are...and they kw wat to show to you during fitting time.

    Indeed very impt to do homework prior fitting. In fact do homework for each section from fitting to photograph pose/location/makeup etc etc... don't be like me, too slack in the end dun hv a pleasant experience.

    Outdoor I go to changi for sunset & alexandra park

    Hey all

    Didn't expect my long posting to hv such response, I guess I commented quite negatively abt Z & Jeffrey and being women, can be quite undecisively just by reading forums.

    Well I had a chat w my HTB and he's saying overall experience is OK, he's doing his job well and didn't shortchange us etc etc. Perhaps since day one I sign up w Z, e attitude I portray is quite "chin cai" everything also OK, not much ideas that's why I gave e impression tat other ppl can decide for me. So eventually when I started to hv ideas, its already too late becoz all is done.

    So to prevent such cases from happening again, I urge all brides to do homework (be lazy and you'll be like me) so that when u go for your appt with Z or other bridal studios, you must voice it out even though they may outspoken you! For photoshoots, if u hv particular pose/theme u wan to capture, always inform them early.

    Whatever it is, always voice out..don't be like me, everything ok ok and in the end.... here I am.

    Also, my HTB says we haven't even seen e photos yet and shouldn't give Z & Jeffrey a dead conclusion now. So till then... I will post to this thread in mid June. Cheers.

    Hi olafsnackjp,

    Guess there are always 2 sides on a coin... the gd thing about z-wedding in my opinion is they do have alot of wedding gown selection, however this can become bad when I become indecisive of which to confirm..! Actually, hv to admit as woman I keep wanting to try more and more gowns especially when u see someone else having their fitting as well, haa... :p but eventually i decided to shortlist and narrow them down but as I went for my first fitting with my HTB only and him being the standard guy whose comment is "ok as long as I like it" I had some difficulties deciding "the one" wedding gown for my AD. Fortunately, my co-ordinator is rather nice enough to hold the 2 reservations for me while I arrange to come down within the next couple of days with my gal frenz for final confirmation! ;)

    In short, i think its gd to get your gal frenz for the 1st fitting for another opinion unless u gals are very sure of wat wedding gowns u wanna get..

    Hi all,

    I signed up with z'wedding design for a package price of $3388. Had my first gown fitting two weeks back.

    The time scheduled for me was four hours. However, i got really tired after two hours and only managed to confirm two gowns. Went back again the second time to complete my gown selection.

    The ladies who attended to me were pretty helpful giving me suggestions and ideas in my gown selection process.

    When i sign up their package, we were promised all together 6 outfits (including my own set of casual outfits) and 3 man suits for photography. However, they had failed to write it down properly in their own copy! we only managed to select 2 man suits and 5 gowns. The lady told me that perhaps 6 outfits is not possible as we may not have sufficient time to change? So i can't bring my own outfit unless i forgo one of the gown. They also failed to note that we had agreed on 3 man suits for photography.. We are still in the process of negotiation and making sure that we are not short changed based on our agreed terms.. Did anyone of you face similar situations?

    Hi ck84, I had almost signed up for 4288, at the shop. However I decided to try my luck during the wedding and travel fair at 3688. Both offers are similar except that 4288 includes 2 mtm for me while the later don't. So in the end 4288 might be a better rate if u decide on mtm dresses.

    Good news ladies, we manage to get three man Suits for photography.

    Just a general advice to make sure they write everything that was agreed down in their copy!

    Hi joy27,

    My package is also 5 outfits for btb & 3 outfits for htb. Does your 5 outfits include ur AD gowns? Thot I remember it's an option that u can choose or not choose the AD gowns for PS? In short, if choose 5 excluding AD will mean 7 outfits in all isit?

    Btw, any z-wedding btb has comments regarding their provisions of accessories to go w the gowns? Or r u gals getting ur own??

    Their gowns are normal but the package is very expensive because of the brand - Chris Ling photography. You may consider it even you really like their gowns selection and design. Most importantly is you like their selection and service because you are the main star of the night! Hope this helps. Thanks!

    Hi ck84,

    From what Sally the marketing manager tells us, the photoshoot is done by one of the photographers trained by CL...
