Things you need to know about pre-wedding photography
What is a pre-wedding or engagement shoot?
A pre-wedding shoot, often referred to as an engagement shoot, is a photo shoot that usually takes place three to six months prior to the wedding day. Though pre-wedding shoots have become a necessity for most, a lot of couples have started debating on whether or not they should have one. Some couples think it’s a waste of money and has no use at all. Well, on that case, they might be wrong.
An engagement shoot can actually help you in a few different ways. First, it helps you build a good rapport with your photographer, especially if you’re hiring the same one to document your wedding day. You will feel more comfortable with your photographer and also get to know his or her shooting style. For your photographer, it’s also the time to get to know more about you as a couple; your characters, how affectionate you are with each other, how formal or casual your styles are. This way, they can create suitable settings that will flatter the both of you during your pre-wedding shoot and wedding day.
Our friends from Terralogical said that pre-wedding photos benefit the couple as well. “Pre-wedding moments are romantic times for the couple. It isn’t rare to see couples happily reminisce their initial chemistry and relive that spark during a shoot.” In short, it’s a great way to create everlasting memories.
What makes a great pre-wedding photo?
There are so many things that can help make great engagement pictures. For Terralogical, the greatness of an engagement album relies on two things. One is whether or not the pictures can tell the couples’ story and the other is how emotions are captured by the lens. “Pictures have to tell something; who they are, how they began, or where they’re going as a couple. If the two are hikers, then it would be great to have a mountainous backdrop gracing the shoot.” Above all, it is the captured emotions that bring all the goodness to the pictures.
