Ideas For Pre-Wedding Shoots

Jan 01, 2021

Creative and innovative wedding photographers are always on the lookout for new ideas when it comes to pre-wedding shoots. Apart from having the opportunity to spend one on one time with the couple, the photographer can also take his or her time experimenting with different locations and poses, getting the couple comfortable and relaxed in order to create and capture artistic and emotive images. In fact, having only been able to do a few shoots due to the pandemic over the past year, they will be extremely enthusiastic once pre-wedding portraits are once again possible.

In order to achieve such beautiful photos, the photographer has a number of options to consider as an aid towards this quest :

  • An interesting location, be it locally or abroad.
  • Architecturally arresting backdrops as a frame.
  • Landscapes.
  • Streetscapes.
  • Heritage sites.

The couple must also :

  • Share ideas with their photographer and in turn listen to his or her suggestions.
  • Be prepared with the necessary attire, shoes and accessories.
  • Trust the photographer.
  • Be game to try out different poses.
  • Be confident and relaxed.
  • Enjoy the experience.

  • Will you need to do a test before embarking on the trip.
  • Are there any quarantine requirements that need to be fulfilled.
  • Are there special rates for flights and accommodation being offered.
