Cheongsam Wedding Dress, Anyone? ... Featuring Alvin and Anna

Enough of tips tips and tips. I think it's time we start seeing pictures so we can put a visual to what we are typing.
I have the privilege of featuring the double As in my blog. Anna is my favorite senior in university who was always there to share happy and sad moments together. I still remember the joy we shared when she told me about this guy she met (which is Alvin), how they got together and eventually to the point whereby he proposed and now, married! =D
The unique point which I wanted to highlight from her wedding preparation is her very lovely made to measure cheongsam wedding dress which she got from Iris and Edel at Lucky Chinatown.

Therefore to start off, we need to know how photographers at bridal studios earn money so that it will help us to understand their marketing techniques better.
Here's one line that pretty much sums up their source of income:
They earn money not from your bridal package, but from the photos taken from pre-wedding photoshoot.
