Joe Teng of Acapella Photography was both our No 1 choice after a stringent 3 months process of interviewing 10 of Singapore’s leading Wedding Photographers which included …..(not naming the photographers). There were a few critical elements that convince us that Joe was the “RIGHT ONE”.
During our 1st meeting, Joe made us feel “AT HOME” from the onset with his friendly and warm personality. There was immediate chemistry and connection with Joe which none of other photographers were able to create. He was able to understand and share the same ideals as we would desire for both our Pre Wedding and Actual Day Shoots. Despite receiving numerous industry accolades in recognition of his outstanding works, we were very pleasantly impressed by his extremely humble and earnest attitude. In short, he has the “X” Factor.
We had 2 Pre-Wedding Shoots with Joe i.e. Lifestyle and Vintage. Both these shoots were done locally. For the former, Joe made great efforts in furnishing us with unique shooting venues that offered both an overseas and mystical feel. On the day of the shoot, Joe and his assistant were very punctual. He was very professional and passionate in taking every single one of his shots and always ensuring that photos of the highest quality are taken. He was also very open in sharing his ideas and experiences on how best we should portray ourselves in front of the camera. Though the shoot was very exhaustive due to the humid weather and prolonged hours, his humorous and candid attitude made our day a truly unforgettable and memorable experience.
We also had 20 of our favourite Pre-Wedding Photos on display like an Art Gallery during our cocktail reception. Many of our special guests were blown away by his outstanding and grand works. They were very interested in engaging his services.
On the Actual Day, Joe and his assistant were extremely professional in carrying out their roles. He established a great rapport with all our other service providers i.e. Videographers, Wedding Planner, Bridal Boutique and Make-Up Artist etc. That ensured that all the service providers work as a cohesive team rather than just the sum of all individuals. He was a calming influence, always assuring us that all is well and we should focus on enjoying our “BIG DAY”.
Joe has always gone beyond his call of duty. For example on our actual wedding day, we had scheduled a visit and serve tea to the groom’s grandfather who had raised him up. Joe knew that the visit was very close to the groom’s heart. Though Joe was not scheduled to shoot that visit originally (As he needed that time to prepare our express highlights and take a rest), he offered to follow us. As a result, he had to sacrifice his rest in ensuring that our express highlights were edited and ready.
In nutshell, I would highly recommend or refer his great services to anyone else. His professionalism, humility, high level of competency and always giving beyond his 100% is second to none in the very competitive and highly skilled wedding photography industry. The level of service rendered by Joe far exceeds his charges.James & Jennifer, Actual Day & Pre-wedding
