I had the chance to interview founder of 39 East and his name is CK.
Here is the email interview:
1) Can you give me an introduction of yourself, when and how did you start out and what is your wedding site about?
Well, let’s see, my names is Kuang and my company is 39 East. 39 East is made up of several photographers and our goal is simply to create beautiful photography. My career in professional photography started when I worked for newspapers in the US after college. After coming back to Singapore, shooting weddings in an unobtrusive manner seemed like a really natural development from my past job as a newspaper photographer.
The 39 East website site is basically a portfolio showing off our favorites shots from all the weddings we’ve shot over the years. We’ve been in business for about 4 years already.
2) I understand you have been in the wedding-related field for quite some time and is now successful. What do you think is the key factor to your success?
I think a major element in being successful in the wedding industry is consistency. It’s really easy to shoot one good wedding a
year, but much harder to to ensure that every single client gets the same high quality product year in and year out. I believe it is our passion in ensuring that each and every client receives a beautiful album capturing the emotions of their wedding day that has helped us remain in business.
3) When you are working with couples, what is it that you are most proud of?
One of the things that 39 East prides itself in is treating each and every client as a friend rather than just a customer that makes our job fun day in and day out. We really like to get to know the clients well, get to know their friends and family, even their pets.
4) What is the greatest challenge that you have faced while growing your career?
One of the biggest challenges has been to keep growing as a photographer. Singapore is a really small market, so to be able to
acquire more skills and inspirations has required us to look very intensely on the progress that is being made by photographers beyond our shores and to find a style or technique which is uniquely our own.
5) Currently, what is the one wedding tip you want to give to soon-to-wed couples?
My advice would be that your wedding day is going to flash by really really quickly. Enjoy every moment. Make the day your own. And make sure to have pictures to capture all the little things you would have missed because the you were too busy.
6) What are some of the areas do you think wedding couples always overlook when planning their own weddings? (can be pertaining to your own field – in this case photography)
Personally, I feel that while many couples think about photography, many don’t spend enough time thinking about how to show
that photography after the day is done, or what they’re going to do with that photography when they finally get it. I think it’s really important to consider that, perhaps even before booking a photographer. There are so many options today, from albums to slideshows, to online galleries. Knowing how they’re going to use the photos after the wedding will help couples tremendously in the purchasing process of their wedding photography.
7) Your final thought and advice for my wedding blog readers?
Have fun and enjoy YOUR day!
That?s the end of the interview.
