Nice Print Photography is perhaps one of the most familiar names in the field of photography, particularly in the wedding, debut, engagement, and events scene. Who would not recognize Nice Print Photography, especially since many local showbiz personalities and celebrities hire their services for their own weddings and engagement shoots. Indeed, the quality of the photos and videos are top caliber. I think they do not even need the endorsements of all the celebrities because the quality of the photos speak for themselves.
Nice Print Photography was our dream photographer for our own wedding in 2014. However, because of budget constraints, we settled for another supplier. While our wedding photos turned out okay, we sometimes think that our wedding album might have even been more spectacular had we contracted the services of Nice Print Photography. Little did we know that we would eventually have the opportunity to have our family photos taken by Nice Print Photography.
We wanted to have photos of Miguel taken before his first birthday as keepsake. When Ynah was recently searching for a photographer, she discovered that Nice Print Photography had an outlet at SM City North Edsa called Nice Print Studio.
Ynah immediately inquired and soon found out that they offered packages that are easy-on-the-pocket. We availed of an Advanced with Post-processing Package which includes one 11 x 14 Print with frame, two 5R prints, six 3R prints, and six wallet-size prints. The package also came with a full hour photo session with four set ups and props – the first set-up follows Miguel’s birthday party theme (Woodland Camping), the second one is “first Christmas,” the third scenario is cake smash, and the last one is a family portrait.
Nice Print Studio
Nice Print’s studio is located at the third level of SM City North Edsa. We initially imagined it to be a spacious location but it was just a small studio. Nonetheless, it was more than adequate for solo shots as well as small family shots. It can be hard to accommodate groups of more than five though.
Nice Print Studio is almost always fully booked throughout the day, even more on weekends. As such, it’s advisable that you call them way ahead before your intended shoot day.
It also goes without saying that you should arrive on time, else your slot will be given to the next customer in line. We learned this the hard way because we got stuck in traffic in Fairview on our way to SM North Edsa. We arrived 15 minutes late but there was already another client being photographed. We did not have to wait long though and we were soon in the studio for our turn.
Miguel’s photo shoot
A few minutes of preparation and after setting up the props, we were already crazily doing our best to make Miguel smile.
It was quite a challenge to get shots of Miguel smiling because it seemed like he was not in a mood for play or he was still not comfortable with the new environment, including the strong lights and the camera flash.
During our shoot, we also had to briefly take a break because it was already the slot of the next client. When we resumed our session for the cake smash, Miguel would not touch his chocolate cake because probably he was feeling a little icky. We tried to coax him to play with his cake but, alas, to no avail.
I knew it was difficult to take good pictures of kids but I did not know the extent of how challenging it actually was. Throughout our session, we had to muster all our strength and patience just to get Miguel to smile. Imagine having to do that throughout the day so it was hats off to our photographer for her unlimited patience and cheerfulness.
We finished late afternoon. However, upon checking the photos, we found out that there were only a few shots with Miguel smiling and that’s in only two set ups. At this point, we were surprised when our photographer offered to shoot us the following weekend at no additional cost, just to be able to capture pictures of Miguel smiling. Of course, we readily agreed.
Fast forward to the next weekend, we arrived at Nice Print Photography on time for our second photo session. Thankfully, Miguel was in a better mood. He was more relaxed and smiled more generously as compared to our previous shoot. We breezed through this shoot soon enough.
When the photographer showed us the pictures, we were impressed with the quality of the shots and we were happy to see Miguel’s precious smile captured attractively in the photographs. We were also able to get the printouts from our first session and we were pleased with the excellent post-processing of the photos. They were enhanced professionally while still looking natural.
All in all, Nice Print Studio is highly-recommended if you are looking for expert photographers to handle your newborn shots, family portraits, and even event photography.
