  • Family portrait

    My parent's wedding anniversary is coming up. Would like to give them a family portrait as a gift. Can anyone recommend/suggest a good studio/photographer? Thank you

    if you don't mind the price, perhaps try Raffles Studio at Neil Rd?
    family portrait taken has this warm feeling or colour which i like..
    like their wooden frame. nice cravings at the side..

      Ditto on this
      i had my graduation photo and family portrait taken here

      although pricey i think they are quite worth it!

        Hi ibonne & natnatviv,

        You two girls are definitely right.

        I think I will probably go back to them. 10 years ago, we took our family portrait with them too. Also, when my parents got married, their wedding pictures were taken by Raffles as well.

        I visited their web site and gave them a call just now. I think I will use them again. Thanks for your feedback

                Raffles - i believe the price range for graduation package is about $600. As it was my sister's, so i can't remember the price well.
                not sure on family portrait... maybe tanya can advise on that?

                Li Ming (Clementi) - i regretted not spending the $$ for Raffles instead. know the photographer there but the photos turn out to be disappointing.
                too bright, as if exposed.
                it's ok overall but with my sister's Raffles hanging besides in comparsion, it fails to make me happy.

                  mine costs about 2k in all from raffles
                  with my bro and my grad photos plus family portraits...
                  i think we have a big one hanging on the wall
                  and 2 small ones of me and my bro

                  think one of my gf took hers from li ming
                  and she look a tad white in the photos..

                    oh so it's true & i still kinda blame it on my foundation - not absorbed well. wonder if he did some editing on me especially.. :piss:

                    please spend good $$ on family portrait - important!

                    for my next time too..

                      The very little info I gathered over the phone is that, the most basic package is at $280. There will be about 5 shots in total and it comes with a portrait which is in canvas and with frame about 14 inches by 11 inches in size (definitely not big), plus 5 complimentary postcard sized picture of your choice. If you want bigger portraits, you can order and pay accordingly.

                      But I believe there are more options available so I will try to visit them soon to have a better idea.

                            i went down to check out Raffles Studio today since it is very near where i live and i quite like their work! however, i also wish to find out about other studios before i decide on one

                            has anyone tried any of the following:
                            - Serangoon Broadway
                            - Portrait Gallery (River Valley)
                            - Portrait Master Studio

                            basically, i'm taking graduation/family pics. not sure if i should go by film or digital :huh: i've not taken any family portraits before so this is our first

                              Heard so much about Raffles. Anyone knows if they have mortar board for rent if we take our pictures there?
