Photoshoot in Fun and Scenic Taiwan by VIVI BRIDE

My hubby 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. You can plan a trip to Taiwan, set aside the first two days for photoshoot and the rest of it sight-seeing the country. 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. 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 good 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 SS2 and JB. The smartest thing to do is to have every detail in black and white.

I just finish choosing the photo, but I would like to thank to Darren and the team, so far they did a good job. thank you Darren and Gerald for their service and advice. it make me has a good experience in Vivi.
my photographer is Alan and assistant Nicholas, I like the photo took by them, it is so nice and fulfil my requirements.
What they promised, they did it! So no worry and discussed with them on your any idea for pre wedding shooting and gown.


Sep 2019

Got approached by them at a wedding fair, we were attracted by them because my wife saw a wedding gown that she really likes. The staff said that is available and told us to take the 30 photo album package. I said that seems so little and they said it’s more than enough and you wouldn’t want to see so many pictures anyway. After we paid in full then the nightmare started. First, we couldn’t find any of the dress my wife likes. We showed them the picture and they said only available at Taiwan,… Fine, so we didn’t get the dress we like. After the prewed photoshoot, it was time to choose the photos to be put into the album. They took 200+ photos and asked us to look through one round first. After that they asked us to choose by eliminating photos that we don’t like or don’t look good in. So we were left at about 100 photos. Then they said since we liked those 100 photos, we can put all of them in the album and make it look nice with their design. They made us believe that that’s the best for our album and then calculated the cost for us. The extra 70 photos would cost more than RM5k! They said things to me like wedding is just once in a lifetime, what is 5k if you can keep all these memories? And said your wife would be happy if you get this for her… I almost fell for their trick but thought I already paid RM4.4k for the package and now extra 5k? I said no way and they kept persuading me and said you can’t spend this little money for your wife? I was infuriated and told my wife to just choose the best 30 photos. They kept on saying if you reduce your photos the album would be empty and wouldn’t look nice. I just can’t believe people would use this tactic to take more money from you. Hope others will be aware and don’t fall for these things and get into debt just for a wedding. Wedding is just a day but marriage for a lifetime.

    We came here for a Taiwan holiday to save time and avoid miscommunication on all aspects of what we wanted,I spent more than a month communicating with the Taiwanese girl from the Taipei office.
    Arrived for the first time at Vivi bride with excitement but it turned to astonishment within a few minutes after meeting the photographer who does not only introduce himself but has not been informed about any details of our shoot,he then went on to ask for exorbitant fees for locations .
    Next day was even worse all promises were broken for eg.no new dress,no qipao,kept asking for money for everything ,nobody to escort us to try the male suits which are in a different shop.
    Day of shooting MUA Tian Tian was not communicative did not give the hair doo I wanted ,then charged 4500nt for ampules ,told for an extra dress it would be 3000 nt,she did not follow onto 2 locations just sat in the van,no initiative for any touch up during all outdoor shooting on a very hot day,have to be told to touch up husbands face,no lipstick applied only lip gloss even after asking,kept asking for me to buy eye lashes I did not want to buy
    The so called " experienced" photographer best in the shop is awful with catching the right angles ,his only poses are touch nose and touch chin,totally did not give us what we wanted with location and poses that we discussed b4 ,I was not given the bouquet of flowers until the third dress( had to ask for it the day b4 as they did not mention it)
    The assistant photographer was a very helpful young man who assisted with the HB clothing and poses the only bright spot of a very annoying experience( added by p off husband )
    Overall our 4 days here has turned out to be a vivi bride nightmare instead of a nice holiday,can not express how bad these people are highly recommend NOBODY use them.
    60000 Nt for only disappointment ,grief,and most importantly a waste of time ( we flew from Bahrain to get here)
    We strongly advise you to go to another shop as there are so many to choose from on that same street

      oh the experience sounds terrible. nonetheless it's very useful piece of information for future brides who intend to photoshoot in Taiwan. you have mentioned some important points to watch out for. Girls have to be wary and pick wisely.

    I've done my photoshoot with Vivi Bride,

    I did not do much research before I signed up for the bridal package. I first heard of it from my friends. They mentioned it is a taiwanese company which produces great photos. I came across them in the Mid Valley wedding fair, and since I have heard good comments from my friend before, we just signed up. I initially regretted my decision as I think there are lots of better ones around…

    They have Malaysian package as well as Taiwan package. From the photos taken at Taiwan, we were really impressed as they have a very pretty place called Miaoli where there is crystal/glass church, beautiful lake, pretty flowers.. but being aware of bridal studio's sales gimmicks,I enquired every little possible cost.

    For Taiwan package, be prepared to fork out lots more extra money. MUA, transportation, hotel, flights, entrance fee to the scenic place. Estimated to be at least 12k.

    For Malaysia's package, which I did, it was 3988. The only extra money I spent was for 2 ampoules at RM50 each and 2 extra photos at RM 120 each.

    I did not really expect a lot from the photoshoot, as I simply didn't do much research and since my friends mentioned they are good, they must be good..

    Good thing: I did not need to top up much money, I can choose any gown from their whole collection. They let me get 5 different gowns for photoshoot (I think in the hope that I will add more pictures in the end?)

    Not so good thing: I only got 30 poses. Actual day will only have 2 gowns. This shop use Chinese extensively. Being a banana, it is quite difficult at times, especially since the terms and conditions are in Chinese (we talked to the Taiwanese during the MV exhibition).

    The photographer I got is called Danny. He's not bad…

    Alright. The end results?
    I would say we were okay with it. I myself think it is not bad, especially when compared to more traditional bridal studios' pictures. This studio doesn't provide any indoor studio shoot. All the shoots are done outdoors. But after starting to do more research, I think there are lots of better ones around, especially those professional photographers that collaborate with small bridal studios or designers. But for the price I paid, ok lah…

    I posted a few of the pictures on my FB page and got lots of compliments! So, again.. nothing much to complain…

    The thing with bridal studios is, make sure everything in black and white, especially costs incurred so you know your expectations and real budget.

      Hi Eeling,

      I've just signed up with them at KSL recently. They never mentioned to me about the poses throughout the sales talk… Anyway what did you get in additional? Do you mind if you can share your package with us? We are hoping to have the shot done in Malaysia.

      Thanks!
