Game Plan

Our Wedding Workflow

1. Zoom Chat / Google Meet

Hey there, friend! So, I wanted to fill you in on what happens when we team up for your special day. It all starts with a Zoom date where we really get to know each other. We’ll chat about your love story, your vision for the wedding, and figure out which wedding collection is the perfect fit for you. It’s like a virtual coffee date!

 
2. Questionnaires
 
After that, I’ll send you a couple of questionnaires to gather all the nitty gritty details. Things like contact info and a shot list for those family photos. It might seem boring, but trust me, it helps me create a detailed photography timeline. This ensures that we capture all those important moments throughout the day. We’ll go over it together, so no worries, you won’t be left in the dark!
 

3. Wedding Day

And then, the big day arrives! I’ll be buzzing around, capturing every little magical moment. Seriously, no pressure, but it’s one of the most important days of your life, so we’ll do our absolute best to make sure it’s documented in the most beautiful way possible.

 

4. Sneak Peek / Teaser

Now, here’s the exciting part. I’ll send you sneak peeks within seven days! I know the anticipation can be killer, so I’ll make sure you get a little taste of what’s to come. And then, within four weeks, I’ll deliver the final online gallery. You’ll have full printing and posting rights, so feel free to share those beautiful memories with the world. Plus, if you have wedding video booked in your package, it should be ready within 8 to 12 weeks to share with your families, love ones, and friends and best part is you’ll receive the 60 seconds teaser video within 3 days only! How awesome is that right?

 

Alright, enough chit chat for now. I’m so excited to be on this journey with you and create some amazing memories together.

 

 

Until then,
Gian

Our

Mission

For us, being a photographers and videographers is not just a profession, it’s a calling. It’s about capturing fleeting moments and turning them into timeless treasures. It’s about understanding that love is not static, but an ever-evolving journey. Each couple that steps in front of our cameras brings their unique story, their own adventures and struggles, and we are honored to be a part of that.

Love is not always easy or picture-perfect, and that’s exactly what we strive to capture. The raw, authentic moments that are not staged or posed, but rather the moments that happen naturally. The stolen glances, the tender kisses, and the laughter that fills the air. Those are the moments that make a photographs come alive, that tell a story without words.

But being a photographers and videographers is not just about capturing those moments, it’s also about creating an experience. We want your time with us to be enjoyable, stress-free, and memorable. We believe that the best photographs are taken when you are relaxed and comfortable, allowing your love to shine through effortlessly.

So, we invite you to step into our world, to trust us to capture your love story. We promise you that we will put our hearts and soul into every photograph, ensuring that your unique love is documented just as it is. No filters, no pretense, just the raw and genuine love that you share.

I highly recommend Happyhire Productions! Their services made our wedding feel so magical. ❤️ Even if you're camera shy, their team will make you feel so natural with your poses as well as make you enjoy every single moment of it. Our first dance was so amazing - with their indoor fireworks and dry ice that helped us looked so professional! I really mean that! 🤣 The Giant L O V E sign was also a hit as my guests taken unlimited photos with them whilst outdoor! The colours can be changed as well. Such a good backdrop too! Overall, I'm genuinely a satisfied customer and highly recommend Happyhire. Their services exceeded my expectations and suited my budget - which was a bonus. 👌

We got married on the 11th of March this year, we booked the 12 hours videography which came with free 5hr open air photobooth as part of their 2017 March promotion, drone and dry ice machine. Gian and team were professional, accomodating and were always open to ideas. They are also very friendly and comfortable to work with. We loved our wedding highlights and didnt regret getting the drone and dry ice! We also loved that all their services were affordable. Our guests had the best time with the photobooth, although we wish the staff minding the booth encouraged the guests to place a photo strip and signed our guestbook. Overall, we highly recommend happy hire 🙂

Gian from Happy Hire Productions is such an attentive and caring professional whose works are of high calibre! Happy Hire caters for all occasions and is a one stop shop for most of your event needs - from videography to photography and DJ, even photo booth and other wedding must haves like dry ice and electronic fireworks, amongst others. Happy Hire Productions did our wedding videography and entertainment which showcased DJ Mike (Michael J. Lazatin) at his best element. Such the loveliest experience working with these talented men. Their attention to detail is phenomenal! Their ability to work with another team of photographers showcased their teamwork and professionalism. 💯🥂 - The Espiritu's
