Get Inspired

Local It Is

Apr 01, 2021

With international borders set to remain closed for the foreseeable future, wedding photographers will take inspiration from our own backyard when planning for pre-wedding shoots. Whilst shoots within our respective states are now possible, the location options will be vastly expanded once inter-state travel is again permitted.

In the meantime, we encourage you to plan ahead :

  • Work out your budget and compare what you can afford with the many packages being offered.
  • Shortlist potential locations that pique your interest.
  • If a destination shoot is on the cards, do some research on accommodation options and lock-in good rates.
  • If you plan to stay in a resort, see if photography on its grounds is possible.
  • How about an island shoot or perhaps a drive up to the highlands?
  • Seek out heritage locations perhaps?
  • What about exploring smaller towns and fishing villages?
  • Do some city hotels offer interior settings that interest your photographer artistically?

Remember the following too :

  • Book a makeup artist.
  • Get your attire sorted as well.
  • Delve into the SOPs to be adhered to for pre-wedding shoots, including permission to travel to chosen locations.
