Quick Explanation of Photography Costs

I've streamlined my photography packages to be wallet-friendly, ensuring you get the best value. The most considerable portion of my photography cost is calculated based on:

  1. Duration booked: it includes changing of equipment, wardrobe, makeup, hairstyle and travelling during the shoot.
  2. Equipment required: natural light vs flash.
  3. Type of editing: basic vs advanced.
  4. Copyright/privacy: there's a fee should you don't want the photos to be published anywhere.
  5. Extensiveness of planning required.
  6. Special requests/ add-ons & surcharges.

Please read the full explanations so that you can make a better decision.

Special Requests

I've tailored these special requests and add-ons to cater to the unique tastes of my past clients, ensuring each voyage is personalised. The inclusion of these options aims to dissuade similar requests and, importantly, not as a means for me to pocket extra income from my future clients.

Think of it as a bespoke service, crafted with your preferences in mind rather than a cunning plan to boost the treasure chest.


Picture this – I'm here to offer you a good experience without breaking the bank. But, when a project starts encroaching on my personal space or health or requires any additional cost, a surcharge is the reality check. No beating about the bush – it's a straightforward acknowledgment of the extra effort.

It's about ensuring a top-notch journey. Your support in grasping this aspect ensures our photography sail stays steady. Ready to roll with this clarity? Your agreement is the fuel that powers our creative engine.

For the uncommon surcharges, do look through the full list of surcharges to avoid miscommunications.

Turnaround Time

Turnaround time depends on various factors, such as:

  1. The number of photos taken
  2. The workload of the photographer
  3. The type of editing required
  4. The quantity of photos requested
  5. The condition of the venue

Generally, if the client needs to choose the photos, it will take up to two weeks for the photographer to sift through and eliminate bad and duplicate shots. The remaining photos are then provided to the clients in a low-resolution PDF file. After the client makes the selection, it will take up to a month for basic editing or two months for advanced editing before the final photos are returned.

Skai follows the practice of reviewing the photos with a fresh mind every one to three days to ensure the highest possible quality. This significant effort places him at a disadvantage in terms of profit. Therefore, clients should appreciate the value of receiving meticulously edited photos, even if it means a slight delay.

In most cases, especially when the number of photos is limited, the final edited photos can be returned much earlier without compromising quality.

For more information, read photography editing time explained.

How Skai Began Doing Sunrise & Sunset Portrait Photoshoots

I was crazy about photography from the get-go. Even when I was just starting with portrait photography, I knew there was something special about those golden hours, right after sunrise and before sunset. That soft, dreamy lighting? Oh, it had my heart!

I ended up creating my very first silhouette photo, and it attracted a whole lot of admiration!

That experience got me fired up! I knew I had to up my game, so I upgraded my equipment and expanded my photography knowledge.

You know, using flash during a sunrise or sunset portrait photoshoot can work wonders and make a world of difference in the final image. Let me tell you why it's so important:

  1. πŸŒ… Balancing that Exposure: During the golden hour, the lighting can play some tricks on us, making it a bit challenging to get that perfect shot. But fear not! Flash comes to the rescue, my friend. It helps balance out the exposure, illuminating the subject and taming those pesky contrasts between the subject and the background. No more worrying about overexposed backgrounds or shadowy faces – we'll create that beautiful balance, making the image look oh-so-natural.
  2. πŸ’₯ Drama and Mood Galore: Now, let's talk about drama! Flash adds a touch of pizzazz, creating a moody and atmospheric vibe or highlighting the subject with that dramatic flair. Imagine the sun setting behind your loved one, and bam! We use the flash to create that awe-inspiring image that speaks volumes. Whether it's dreamy or intense, flash is our secret sauce for setting the mood just right.
  3. πŸš€ Freeze that Motion: Life's full of motion, and sometimes we want to capture it all in a split second. Enter flash, the superhero of freezing motion.

Outfits to Wear for Sunrise & Sunset Portrait Photoshoots in Singapore

Let's talk about that fabulous wardrobe for your sunrise and sunset portrait photoshoot in Singapore! You know, picking the perfect outfit is like finding the cherry on top of a scrumptious sundae - it can elevate your whole photoshoot game. Here are some tips to ensure you shine like the golden hour itself:

  1. 🌞 Soft & Subtle: Remember, we want that golden hour light to be the star of the show, so let's avoid those flashy bright colours that might steal the spotlight. Instead, go for earthy or neutral tones, like those dreamy pastels, muted shades or some earthy colours that complement that warm, glowing light.
  2. πŸŒ… Dress the Part: Location, it's all about dressing for the occasion! If we're prancing around the beach, a flowy sundress or a relaxed, casual outfit would be just perfect. But if we're frolicking in a lush forest, a nature-inspired outfit or that flowy dress would make you feel like a woodland princess.
  3. 🌬️ Weather Warrior: Keep an eye on the weather! Singapore's weather can be quite the tease but don't worry, we'll dress accordingly. In summer, light and breezy is the way to go – sundresses or shorts and a cute tee. In winter, let's keep things warm and snug with cosy sweaters or jackets.
  4. πŸ‘— More Outfits, More Fun: Let's amp up the fun with some outfit changes! Bringing extra sets of clothes will give us more options and styles to play with. Variety is the spice of life and we'll spice up your photoshoot with different looks and vibes.
  5. πŸ’ƒ Your Flair: You know what they say - "Be yourself, everyone else is taken." Choose an outfit that reflects your fabulous style and makes you feel like a million bucks! When you're comfortable and confident, your natural beauty will shine through.
  6. πŸ“Ώ Accessorise: Simple and dainty accessories can add that touch of charm and personality to your images. A necklace, some bracelets or cute earrings can bring out the sparkle in your eyes. Just remember, less is more, we don't want to overshadow that radiant smile of yours.
  7. πŸ‘« Power of Coordination: If it's a couple's photoshoot, let's play the coordination game! You and your partner can have some fun matching or complementing each other's outfits. Creating that cohesive look will make your images look oh-so-adorable and picture-perfect.
  8. πŸ’‡β€β™€οΈ Hair & Makeup: Don't forget those luscious locks and makeup magic! Styled hair and natural makeup that suits the golden hour light will make you look like a dream. You'll be positively glowing like the sun itself.

In a nutshell, dressing for a sunrise or sunset portrait photoshoot in Singapore during golden hour is all about location, season, personal style and the little details that make you shine.
