Today we are going to share with you some top tips regarding Pre-Wedding photo shoots, sometimes these are also called engagement sessions or even couple shoots.
Your engagement session may well be the first time when you and your fiance have had a professional photo shoot together. We hope that these few tips can help you to be better prepared for your session.
1. HAVE FUN AND ENJOY YOUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTO SHOOT!
You have both decided to book your engagement session so that you can have amazing pictures which will stay with you forever. The aim behind the session is to narrate your tale of love through pictures. We think it is important to have overall vision about your photos you wish to get. Discuss about it with your photographer's. Don’t feel like you have to do something just because it’s what everyone else does. It can be very crazy session or romantic photo shoot. The most important thing is that you both enjoy the photo session, have good fun and trust us that the result will be amazing.
2. WHAT OUTFIT SHOULD YOU WEAR FOR ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Most important of all is that you should feel comfortable. Try to match outfits to the theme of your session. For example a suit doesn’t look good if you wish to do crazy photos. Try and avoid wearing green colours if you are planing for photos in your local park. Coordinating with your partner, doesn’t mean that you have to both wear the same colours.
3. LOCATION FOR PRE WEDDING SHOOTS.
Often our couples choose locations for engagement photo session at the place where their love story started or at a place which has lots of good memories. Sometimes our couples wish to have great photos, but have no idea about locations. In this case discuss the location with us. Tell us your vision and we will help you find the perfect location. In most of cases you are not limited by time, you can do experiments, travel between locations, taking photos in the morning time as well as at night is always an option. Good photographer's always knows how to choose the best location for session and the best time of the day to shoot there.
4. COLLABORATE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER.
It is important to know that for a successful session everyone involved needs to work together. Your photographer's and the both of you. Your photographer can not create amazing photos without your help. Remember that you are both the most important part of the photograph.
5. MAKE-UP AND HAIR STYLING FOR ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS.
Would professional make-up and hair styling help you feel more confident for your session? Why not arrange to do a wedding make-up / hair trial in the morning and after have the photo shoot. This will also help give you an idea of how your wedding makeup and hair will look in your wedding photographs.
