This is how I always imagined my wedding photos to look like. http://itgirlweddings.com/pretty-vineyard-wedding/

Our wedding was May 2016, in the Tuscan hills of Italy. It has been almost a year and to this day, I still am very unhappy when I look at the photos. Prior to our wedding day, I communicated with Kurt through WhatsApp for over half a year, showing him photos I loved and even suggested an idea of having a list of photos I definitely wanted to have on my wedding day. He constantly told me to stop worrying and to trust him and his job. I really regret not being more outspoken on the day of my wedding, but what bride and groom has time to micromanage their photographer. I felt since I communicated with him an entire YEAR before the wedding, showing him examples of what I loved, he would be able to envision the day the way I have asked.

- I wish my ceremony photos were not all far away and from the ground looking up. The angles was unflattering and the photos did not represent how the event went. I felt my friends captured better shots from their phone cameras with a more direct angle. The first kiss was shot from so far away. The photo of my parents and I walking down the aisle was slanted and from a very unflattering angle. If all the shots were not from the ground looking up, it would have probably been better.
- During the ceremony, I only have photos of my guests and nothing close up of the bride and groom. The photos were SO zoomed out, showing all my guests covering their faces from the sunlight and wiping their tears. Honestly, that's great, but that's not what a photographer should have focused on! Where are the shots of the two of us up-close and smiling at each other? Why don't I have a photo with my officiant, one of the more important people of the day? I should NOT need to crop my own photos so I can find what the main focus point should be.
- The poses taken when the bride and bridesmaids were getting ready are SO awkward. What ever happened to just the girls smiling at the camera in our dresses and looking at each other and pretending to laugh? We had to stand in the awkward poses that my maid of honor felt her body shaking when Kurt took over 5 minutes to take a shot.
- There are far more photos of the groom and groomsmen taking photos. Guys do not care about photos!! As a bride, I would have assumed the attention would have been upon myself, but I do not have real-time photos being taken of me getting ready! There isn't even a single shot of myself in my bridal gown holding my bouquet. ZERO. Why would a photographer not have a photo of a bride in her gown, alone, on her very special day?? It's not hard to remember...
- Zero photos with my family, especially my mother and father alone.
- Harsh lighting for photos after ceremony. As a photographer, I counted on Kurt to tell us to move out of the harsh light and to take better group photos in the shade or even indoors. He rushed through those photos, that all of our photos have the guests squinting unhappily. Not once we were suggested to move elsewhere.
- We only had a handful of photos as a bride and groom. We didn't get to take photos because Kurt's excuse was the sun being harsh. I felt we had a lot of time to move around the compound and find better areas, but I felt he didn't bother to scout out the location (although he was on premise with us for 3 days prior to the event).

I understand Kurt did not have an assistant that day, but there were many points that were missed. He could have spent more time taking photos of the bridal party, and not the groomsmen because the boys obviously do not care about the wedding photos after the event. Hell, the boys just look at them with a glance! My engagement photos and elopement photos were done by one photographer and I loved 90% of her photos because she was attentive and really asked me what kind of shots I would like.


As a bride, I did not have time to think of the nitty gritty. I assumed Kurt knew since we been in contact since May 2015 for my May 2016 wedding and that is where I really focused on the details I wanted. He spent the entire weekend with my friends and I, eating and drinking, and treated as if he was our friend. We showed him hospitality and I thought by then, he would understand what my husband and I envisioned for the wedding. Out of the 600+ photos, I wholeheartedly believe I love about 5-1o photos, but they are not photos I would want to frame to put in my house. The rest of the photos I have been really impressed with our photos from my guests as they really had the eye to capture the moments the way I wanted. I've cried several times about this matter because how much I regret moving forward with Kurt as the photographer. People elsewhere may love this type of photography, and I truly did from the samples he posts on his blog, but I can tell you from looking at hundreds of my own photos, they are not what any of my friends and family expected. I spoke so highly of his work and trusted him SO MUCH, only to be disappointed by the $4000 we spent. Our wedding is once in a lifetime, especially since this wedding was held over 5000 miles away from home, I expected captures I could feel proud of and share with my friends and relatives. More than half of my friends, even ones at the wedding, agreed the photos could have taken differently and with more detail.

Choosing the Raw Note as our wedding liveband is one of good decisions we had made for our wedding; the lead singer cum emcee, Ms June that we had chosen, had performed remarkably well both as emcee and singer. She is presentable and articulate with fluent English and Mandarin as the emcee; and as the lead singer she has performed every song well. I have received numerous good comments from my guests on June as emcee and singer (including my wedding coordinator), as well as on the liveband performance in overall. Thanks to such an excellent team for providing great entertainment to our guests, all of them had enjoyed a lot. We will definitely recommend the Raw Note and June to other couples in future!

Emily WongReviewed at 12 Feb, 2017

Me and my wife really appreciate to have The Raw Note live-band to perform on our big day! From the time we engage to their service, there is nothing for us to worry about. We love the professional service provided by them. Even-though we have married for few years, there are still guests from our wedding dinner checking out the wedding live band who were performed on our actual day. This is truly a great memory for us, thanks to Chris and the team. Highly recommended if you are looking for any live-band on your wedding !

Enjoyed the performances by Debbie. Music was arranged to suit the chill, relax & jazzy feeling that I wanted for my wedding reception. Not a big fan of loud music as it disrupts conversations. The team took into consideration the song choices that i requested. Overall, no complains & satisfied

Thumbs up for YY, Wan Hua, Alex, Vivi and the entire R.O.Memories team. You guys are too awesome and helpful who made our dream ROM and wedding come true! Thank you so much ♥

I have been looking for a Garden Style wedding, a romantic and relaxing kind of wedding where the guests can cheers and wandering around for small catch up. R.O.Memories had fulfilled all my dream and even beyond my expectations The photos itself could never express the beauty of the location and decoration, you have to be there to experience the romantic atmosphere in real. Even our photographer and videographer were impressed with our ROM ceremony and romantic wedding dinner.

In fact, alot of the ideas came to mind quite last minute. However, YY and her team were able to fulfilled all my requirements and even gave me their professional suggestions. I had such a romantic and touching ROM, thanks for giving me such a wonderful evening. Kudos to Vivi as you're such an awesome host who manage to control the whole ROM and dinner well.

I have also received alot of good feedbacks from my guests saying that the foods and desserts were way too delicious. People used to have some perception on having buffet for wedding dinner. However, this time round, i think R.O.Memories managed to change my guests' mindset. Buffet dinner can be delicious as well (:


I would definitely recommend the newly wed couple to held your ROM and wedding dinner at R.O.Memories, the atmosphere is way too romantic and awesome ♥

Kudos to Vivi, Alex and the entire team who made our dream wedding a reality! For starters, my husband and I were never ones to succumb to commonality, thus we knew exactly how we wanted our ideal wedding to be. What surprised us was that a place like R.O.Memories actually existed in a city where I have lived my whole life. And we are so glad that we did not back out on our decision despite it not being a typical Chinese banquet venue. We fell in love with the place in its entirety; the ambience gave us and our guests the romantic "love-is-in-the-air" feeling we all desired. Our guests were definitely impressed, for it was surely a wedding like no other. And we have no one else to show our heartfelt appreciation to but you guys. Regardless of our unusual requests, demands, whims and fancies, you guys still gave us nothing short of excellence and that means everything to us. Thank you Vivi and Alex for being so attentive and thoughtful during the full event, helping us to deal with minor hiccups and always reminding us to eat :P The food was great as well, and that completed our wedding memory with perfection. We are blessed to have found such awesome friendships in you both, and for that we are grateful. Thank you once again! :)

When I booked a family photoshoot, initially my family was a little apprehensive as we have never done a professional photoshoot before.
But when we viewed the photos for the first time today, everyone of us was very pleased when we saw the photos, even my dad, and we wondered how did Grace make us so photogenic! Haha!
Thank you so much for making the photoshoot so easygoing and for making us not feel 'kekok' at all... It was indeed a great experience. �
We ended up getting all the photos because it was just too difficult to choose among them �.
Thanks again Grace, and best wishes..

We chose Stories as our videographer for our ROM Ceremony as we really love the videos they did previously. We had our ROM on 08.10.2016 and the video was suppose to be shown during the dinner reception on 15.10.2016. Despite the short timeline (in only one week), Stories produced, i would say, the best video i have watched.
I would say i am a bridezilla and i have watched almost all the wedding videos i can find in the internet.We had high expectations on Stories but the video was way past our expectations. Our ROM video was exactly what i wanted. Stories manage to highlight the whole event, but at the same time add personal touch to the video. Delvin, Chi Yin and Choo Cherk did an amazing job by making everyone very comfortable and they worked really hard to capture every moment they can.
I have watched the video 20 times myself and i am still not bored of it, everyone asked who my did my ROM video and i would proudly say, Stories did.

We had our ROM on 10 Sept, 2016. Our vision for our wedding was a small and intimate wedding where all of our guests could celebrate our special occasion with us. Ciao Ristorante made this reality for us.

The ambience was fantastic and the food was great. We loved every bite and many of our guests were impressed and left us with fabulous comments about the food and service.

Mr Soo and I would like to extend our utmost gratitude to Mr Wan Iscanda and the entire staff for making our day run so smoothly. Service on the day was absolutely tremendous.

Everything was absolutely perfect!

We would certainly recommend Ciao Ristorante to anyone considering it for their special occasion and look forward to dining there again in the near future.

I want to personally thank Wan, Alex and the rest of Ciao RIstorante's crew for the superb service for my wedding reception at 10/09. The event proceeded so smooth and flexible, that my friends and family are so contented with the dinner. I have never experienced any friendlier, fast response service crew like Ciao's. Totally recommend for romantic and meaningful events.

Dear Grace, thank you so much for the pleasant experience that we had with you. From the beginning of my email to the end of the entire ordeal, you have never failed to portray what it means to be professional. Your service is truly commendable. Thank you for going the extra mile in cheering the little one during the photoshoot. You took the trouble to lug a box of toys and proceed to change your play list to nursery rhymes when he is grouchy. We see nothing but a passionate soul behind that camera. Thank you for the master pieces you have created for my family. If this is not ATAS, then I dont know what it is. THANK YOU!

Dear Grace, Jamie and all at Stories,
We want to say thank you so so much for the fantastic service you rendered at our recent wedding. I know that at times it must have been frustrating with the loud relatives and the constant requests for photos. We apologise for any shortcomings on our side and really can only highly recommend Stories to all our friends in KL and abroad. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and your team. Thanks again for capturing all the precious moments of our special day..
Sincerely,
Karen and Anthony Vlk

Young girls put on a veil and drape a sheet to pretend to be a bride and plan a million pretty dream wedding details.. I on the other hand, stalked out Grace and the Stories website from my late teens and knew that she would be my dream wedding photographer. Fast forward 10 years and my husband and I absolutely love her work from our wedding day
