My hubby just told me his ex-colleague, who's getting hitched bought a custom made wedding dress, flew to Taiwan for her pre-wed PS and paid for all the photos taken. It cost a bomb. Then I found myself busy researching for such overseas packages. Why didn't I think of that? We could have planned a trip to Hong Kong or Taiwan, set aside the first two days for photoshoot and the rest of it sight-seeing the country. Reading the experience from the to-be-weds, I know they enjoyed the entire process. There are some very scenic and beautiful places in Taiwan for photo taking.
Customers returned from Taiwan seemed to praise Vivi Bride Taipei and its crew for the wonderful service rendered. They must have done an amazing job. Basically pre-wedding package includes the albums, gowns, photography, certain number of poses (shots) and other freebies. The BS will inform the customer what are the additional charges, like MUA's (Wedding Acronym) service during the PS, transportation, courier costs, additional poses, extra hours, ampoules... It may occur to you that they are inclusive in the package, so some clients expressed dissatisfaction about the items being excluded.
All in all, with their excellent photography, high quality printing, incredible sceneries and fun adventure, the Taiwan package is something worth considering. Paying for the flight, accommodation, food, traveling and all is expected. There are two Malaysian branches namely Jalan Loke Yew and JB. The one at Jln Loke Yew did not receive as good reviews though. Some customers were unhappy about the unprofessional PGs and service. The smartest thing to do is to have every detail in black and white.

Actual comments and discussions:
"Photographer: 徐sir=> Professional PG who really devoted his youth to wedding photography. Under all that grey hair is actually a PG who's only in his 30s! He lasted the entire 12 hours shoot without complaint! Amazing!
MUA: 梁总监=> Interesting MUA, talented in creating the many 造型 that I just can't find SG MUA this good! All accessories are his personal collection.
Customer Service IC：佳琪/ 史店长=> Always follow up with our requests -- changes to layout of the photos, collection of the "deliverables". Very friendly, great service :)"

"my personal experience, better don't sign up with vivi. the staff may be nice and friendly, that's their job requirement and especially a need if you haven't sign up. once signed up, you will find they are very not flexible. so, if u really want to sign up with vivi, make sure u have detailed out every single thing u wanted and get them write it down, black-and-white!"
"I took my pre-wedding pictures in taiwan this year, no issue also. Quite flexible but I didn't bargain for more photos(I blame it for being a newbie at that time). During the expo at mid valley last year, they already explained about every cost incurred so I believe its because October.Guy did not ask properly but anyway, for my case, despite me not asking...they explained(example: make up artist...whether u want him/her to follow u out during ur shoot for different hairstyle, amount to pay to the driver, suggestion for choosing location, what to do when u arrive on the first night, when to collect the big picture for ur bedroom...etc etc) and THEN we asked for more clarification on certain things. "

"The photo effect is just simply amazing, so natural n nothing beats it in here... i don't know maybe is our weather here, whereby our actual day photographer told us that sun in taiwan is not as strong n hot compared with here, also coz their professional attitude towards the perfection n details, another strong reason there is a assistant photographer on flash is always beside, he is the one assistin the photographer on positions, costume neatness n jokejoke... that really helps in getting ur tireness n stain away on a long day shooting"
