|Dusun Fairies,Ulu Langat|
After setting the date for the prewedding shoot we started doing research on location to shoot and also props we would like to bring along for our shoot.
Due to time limitation we finally settle for Dusun Fairies in Ulu Langat for half day session from 9-1pm which cost RM 300. We were considering between this and Sekeping Tengiri in Bangsar. On that day , it was raining and I was early to have my make up done on site. Above are the few selected pictures. Not bad for a shoot location.Scenic.
After 1pm with a bit of traffic jam we were on to our second location. Poco in Bangsar.It is a small cozy cafe. For exchange to shoot there we payed RM5x excluding buying lunch. We only can start shooting at around 3pm when there is less customers. Parking is a hassle in this area. We were considering Wondermilk and after asking their manager, their price was exorbitant for our pockets and for mere 2 hours.
Next shot was at UPM, initially we were told to pay RM50 for the pak guard to keep the gate open in the evening but at the end we had to pay Rm150 because there were functions going on. So had to get some official papers. So from 5pm till about 7pm we were shooting here. By now we were exhausted and who would have thought prewedding shoots are
We bought props like alphabet, heart shape blocks and glasses from TYPO pavillion. We also bought chalkboards from Kaizon (Festival City Mall) for a very cheap price like 10 bucks per piece or less. Balloons were Rm5-6 bucks per balloon we had 15 . We bought this from One Utama. Had the extra long thing spray so that the balloon can last longer.
Make up and gowns are from Valerie Fan in SS2,PJ. For brides out there, on the prewed shoot bring some snacks,water and mosquito repellents. You can choose to wear neu bra earlier if there is no changing place. Button up shirt and strapless bra is helpful to change quickly. Shorts and short skirts too. Bring slippers and wet wipes.Sometimes the costume jewellery the bridal gallery provide is not up to your taste , hence bring some spare. Especially if you have casual shots.I forgot to bring :s
When we choose the shooting location, we were ready to top up some money. If you would like free locations then consider putrajaya, lake gardens ,public places and etc... Others usually requires you to spend a bit more. Of course if you are shooting outside KL...then the charges increases :)
Plan ahead, if out of KL or overseas location the be ready to 'pau' the photographer and make up artist for food & accomodation. We were actually thinking of Cameron Highlands... but abandon after thinking about weather predictability, distance, extra day,extra cost!
