    he considered a while.. and told mi.. hmm.. nvm.. i got a cool photographer liao... which he means.. mount on tripod and pose

    It's better to have a reliable photographer on your wedding day cause they just know what to do if things do go wrong.

    Guess the photographer should be able to take decent shots. No need to be some big professional. And guess that's what a portfolio is for rite?

    recently my sista asked if im interested to shoot for her colleague.. but he too is a photographer... but again.. there are mani areas in photography.. if yr forte lies in landscape... sometimes u may not be able to do well in portraiture or event..

    i remember seeing a portraiture photo taken by a landscape photog.. wah.. really . there is even 1/3 rule in the photo....

    For my wedding, all my photographer mates will not be invited as guests. Probably all end up working for free. But i'll still hire 1 professional wedding photog, just to do the standard shots. All the photojourn style, candids and other viewpoints will be captured by friends with all sorts of cameras. I foresee a situation where flashbulbs will negate the use of any house lighting......

    Yah of cos. Besides if you are a landscape photographer I'm sure you won't be interested in event (for example) Unless you are a multi-discipline photographer. You tried taking events before?

    So what's your forte?
