I got to know CS Ling photography from poodle club group in Facebook. We have our family photo-shooting (Prince) every year and this year is a special year as we have 2 new editions of Precious and Pepper. From our first email to the actual photo taking, Ling took the time to get to know our personality and our furries preferences. We experienced the blessed moments engaging the boys into the photos. Sending Ling our pictures allows her to visualize what we want from the photo shooting – esp the unconditional LOVE expressed by the furries to us.
We don’t need to go out and rent props as Ling have what we really want at the back of our mind (modern vintage style).
The props, the bubbles, the postures I can only described with one word Awesome! She is also able to capture the mischievous but yet the adorable looks for our furry companions.
Photographing for family members is very different from taking photos together with pets. It takes a lot of experiences to be able to capture the pets expression swiftly. It’s not just “come smile and look at the camera.” Dogs can be restless at times (same goes to my boys). But yet the patience, the bending, laying down, making lots of noise, lots of treats to catch a few secs of their attentions. The price we pay were way beyond reasonable compared to what we had from others in the past.
Our past experiences with other photographers: After photo-shooting, they will give you hundreds of photos to view and pick. From those selected ones, then they will edit for you. However, Ling service was good. She will select the best out of the hundreds pic and she will edit it for you before showing you during photo-viewing. This helps reduce the additional cost of buying the soft copies. Our money is better spent to get canvas or other products than just buying soft copies.
I will definitely recommend to ALL my friends out there especially if they have pets. We will definitely come back to Ling again for more. The next round more tough for you Ling.. we want more of your great shots. “We will start thinking what themes we want from now.” It’s going to be more challenging.
Final Verdict: Services is awesome. Price reasonable. Environment conducive.
