Planned Posing

Jul 01, 2019

Here are some images which act as a catalyst to perhaps whet your appetite for pre-wedding shoots. It is an opportunity for couples to document interesting images in the lead up to their wedding day as well as a chance for photographers to put to test their creative and artistic skills.

Issues to consider would include :

  • Cost.
  • Lead time required to have the photos ready by the wedding day.
  • Indoor vs outdoor locations.
  • Local vs overseas venues.
  • Duration of shoot.
  • How many changes of attire.
  • Deliverables in terms of number images and medium of delivery.

Some suggestions :

  • Photographers often announce their overseas shooting schedule in advance, so do keep a lookout for them if you are contemplating a destination shoot abroad.
  • Take advantage of seasonal promotions to stretch your wedding budget.
  • A concise, casual shoot is an option for soon-to-be-weds who prefer simple and easygoing pre-wedding photography.

For destination shoots :

  • Choose the time of year where good weather is prevalent.
  • Consider and respect local cultural sensitivities of the destination.
  • Perhaps extend your stay for a short holiday post shoot.
