Wedding Drone Videography Singapore, has been in our mind for sometime before we launched it. When we proposed a special one hour fun shoot with drone aerial view, gladly Hock & Applie was excited and accepted the challenge. There were few venues consideration such as Sentosa Beach, Chinese Garden and Jurong Park as part of their wedding day itinerary. We did survey and tested the drone at these venues except Jurong Park where there is a sign of no aerial activity. After tested at Chinese Garden, we found that the bridge is gonna be super awesome. And despite all the hard work… there’s no greater satisfaction than knowing that our work and masterpiece has brought an unforgettable happiness, memories & satisfaction to our Clients. Thank you so much to our superb couple Hock & Applie for your trust and the wonderful testimony you have shared with The Straits Times newspaper about us. We are honored!

Another happy customer is airport operations manager Chua Ching Hock, 30, whose wedding video incorporated drone shots by videography company d’ZIGN for you. He was filmed from the top kissing his bride-to-be in their wedding car and dancing with their team of groomsmen and bridesmaid.
“We called the drone a wasp and kept laughing every time it was overhead,” he says. “We ended up being very relaxed during the shoot and looked really happy on camera.”

Tell us about yourself, how did you actually started out in this business? Lydia: There is love happening around us everyday.. on the streets, in the mall, beach…everywhere. My passion is to discover these through photography and videography every single day. This business started through videography. I did a few montage and love story video clips. Slowly I expanded my expertise into capturing wedding days with both videography and photography. It amazes me to discover how love can be captured in photographs and videos. They truly can speak a thousand words.

Cupid With A Camera Behind every wedding there is a story. Lydia Isnanto uncovers it and tells the story in images. “The love story of a couple gives me the inspiration for the concept behind the video. We want to capture the most meaningful moments for each couple. Each story is unique and we have to look at it differently—there is no fixed template for a wedding video.” Lydia Isnanto, is the antithesis of the typical “creative director”: she is cheerful, generous, kind and yes, creative and resourceful. These attributes give her the ability to unlock that unique story behind the coming together of a couple, and to use different concepts and angles to create one-of-a-kind photo albums and wedding videos for each of her clients….
