“This pre-wedding video is really important to her.”
That was what Ying Hui revealed (kind of off-handedly) during one of the few meetings I had with Adriene and him while discussing the video.
Oh boy. I must admit after that, I do feel a little pressured to make sure I give them the best of what they hope for, on top of my usual motto pressuring myself to making sure I give all my couple the best of what they hope for.
So, no stress!
Imagine how excited and happy I am when Adriene first saw it and told me they loved it.
Even after being in this industry for so long, I still feel the pressure to always ace each wedding edit. I have this process where after finally finishing an edit, I would feel really proud of it. A mere 4 seconds later, doubt starts creeping in, voices saying ‘this could have been better, that could have been better’ can be heard in my head. Then I go back to feeling crappy knowing I could have done better.
A friend commented, “Shouldn’t you be used to that by now?” The way I see it though, is that the day I stop feeling that pressure it means I have stopped striving. A wise person also told me, ‘At the end of the day you may feel like you can always do better but don’t you think that as long as the couple love your work, it means that you have succeeded on this occasion?’
It seems that generally, Singaporeans are not a very vocal bunch of people. So, whenever upon hearing firsthand from our couples how much they love what we have given them makes our day and really, really keeps us going.
I hope everyone enjoys this video as much as we had a good time making it!
