Getting the Most Out of Your Pre-Wedding Photoshoot
 

 
When wedding planning are well underway, it’s easy to forget documenting the engagement, which is also memorable. There are many benefits of pre-wedding photoshoot, ranging from trying out your wedding photographer and having a set of images to use during the wedding planning phase, to loosening up in front of the camera to ensuring a relaxed environment on your wedding day.

We spoke to the one of the most trusted Scottsdale Hindu Wedding Photographer, Saiaf Films, for their surefire ways to a fail-proof pre-wedding photoshoot and how to ensure you’ll be getting the most out of this wonderful pre-wedding experience.

Why should you have a pre-wedding photoshoot?

There are a few reasons. Getting engaged is a pretty big moment in anyone’s life and having some great pictures together with your beau to keep and look back on is pretty cool. It’s also a great way of getting some pictures to use for your wedding. A guest book, a signing board or save the date cards could all feature images from your pre-wedding shoot. You can also practice. Your Indian Wedding Photographer Chicago will work with you in terms of posing. Most couples aren’t models and need a bit of directing to look good in pictures: how to stand, where to put your hands and feet… it’s all the photographer’s knowledge you can use for your wedding pictures.

How should you dress for the photoshoot?

Wear something you feel good in. If you feel confident in what you’re wearing that will translate to the pictures. Be daring and don’t follow the trend. If you want to go ball gown and black tie, do it. Just because everyone else wears jeans doesn’t mean you have to. Things to avoid are stripes, checkered or anything with a big logo on it. Generally, they don’t look great in pictures.

What should you keep in mind when choosing a location?

Discuss the location with your Bengali Wedding Photographer. Is the location you want even possible, since some areas require a permit to shoot. Some areas are really busy, especially in the summer months. Choose a place where you will get lots of variety in your pictures but be guided by your photographer. They know the locations that will work and those that won’t.

What should you be asking your photographer before you book them for your pre-wedding shoot? Is there any preparation you need to do?

Ask to see lots of engagement shoots they have done to get a good feel of their work. Are they consistent? Do you like what they have created for other people? Do their pictures make you feel excited about the prospect of them shooting yours? Also, Saiaf Films recommend to book a pro to do your hair and make-up. You can also ask your Indian Wedding Photographer New Orleans to recommend a good artist for the job.

When should you be thinking about having this pre-wedding shoot?

If you have already booked the photographer to shoot your wedding, then we’d say a few months before the wedding, so what worked for you is still fresh in your mind. But if you are road-testing the photographer, in the hopes that you may book them for your wedding, then as soon as you can. Good photographers get booked up very quickly.
