How To Have The Best Pre Wedding Shoot, Ideas And Inspiration

Pre-wedding photoshoots are a great way to capture the romance between you, two lovebirds.  the best part of photoshoots is the ability to create an album full of perfectly timed candid and intimate moments that can be relived for the rest of your lives. Pre wedding photoshoots can ultimately be considered a whole day dedicated to eachother expressing your love for one another, in a world of your own, with your own personal camera crew capturing all the right moments – from the bloopers to the final master piece. It´s a great way to get your guests excited for your wedding to come.

The best part of pre wedding photoshoots is the fact that they consist only of you two, no guests, no wild parties and absolutely no stress. Although, side note: you may occasionally have the camera man/lady often interrupting to brief you on how to do things but  remember guys this is just to ensure you have an amazing set of images to treasure for the rest of your lives. We advise that you pick a photographer you are happy with and brief them beforehand with your expectations of the shoot, that way you can all work together as a team to produce the desired results. Now warnings aside, prepare yourself for these beautifully created moments captured below by some of our best photographers!

Timing is everything

A key thing to consider when capturing your heart felt moments is your background. select a location perfect for the both of you, with jaw dropping scenery. Now, sunsets for example, are huge contributers to the ambience created when capturing these perfect pictures. Timing is everything, you want to go to your location at the right time to take advantage of the natural lighting, let nature do it´s thing and with a slight edit here and there, you will have a picturesque moment to treasure for the rest of your lives! Consider the weather, alongside lighting, wind and rain are big contributors. Now, for those who are bollyowood fanatics and want to capture that bollywood moment, try the rain kiss, although, to achieve this, you will need to have great patience with the rain. For those who prefer dry days, be weary of windy days, this can either work in your favour creating that wind swept look, or, ultimately spoil the whole look. Essentially consider timings –  when you can capture the gorgeous sky and warm shadows for your background.
