SIX THINGS TO KEEP IN YOUR MIND BEFORE YOUR PRE WEDDING PHOTO VIDEO SHOOT
We at Jestaplo do a lot of Pre Wedding Photoshoot and I will give my 2 cents here on What are the thing which is important/ should be focussed in a Pre Wedding Shoot. Pre Wedding Shoot are fun but they can also turn into a nightmare if you are not properly planned and prepared for your upcoming pre-wedding photo video shoot.
You should select a photographer who can shoot as per your expectation. Hiring a noobie will definitely save you some money but you will have to compromise on the quality of photos taken. There have been numerous stories of people regretting later on about hiring a cheap photographer. Photographers who are expert in this field will understand your requirement and will give you amazing photographs. Plus Pre Wedding shoot has now become a time-specific task. A professional photographer makes sure to give you the best possible utilizing the all the available time in the best possible way.
Locations are important. They set the pace for your photographs giving a sense of place and a definite mood to the photos. Nowadays in India at least – There is a trend of shooting Pre Weddings at hotels and resorts. Some places have been built specially for the Pre Wedding shoot with different backdrops and props. I personally prefer outdoor and Iconic locations in various cities.
There is a reason why your photographer has told you to come at 6 O clock in the morning. Some of the best images you get are during, before or after Sunrise and Sunset. Timings are important if you are late considerably at the end you are the loser. Be punctual. This point is valid for both Photographer and Couples. Photographs that offer a visual treat to the eyes are often shot during blue or twilight hour. To get that magical feel in your photos, be prepared to be ready for your shoot before the sun comes up.
4. Pre Wedding Attire
What you wear is quite important for your Pre Wedding shoot. It is also important to coordinate your dresses as per the location. For example: If you are shooting at an old fort then traditional attire is good as it goes with the place history and overall look and feel. You can buy dresses or else you could rent them. You can take the help of Photographer. You can ask him/her what is the good choice of attire for a particular location. Alternatively, if your budget is fine you can take the help of a stylist.
5. Check Out Few Pre Wedding Poses on Google
It is a really good idea if you can look up at some of the Pre Wedding poses before your shoot. No need to memorize the poses just have a look at some of the poses – It will be helpful for you at the time of the shoot. Many of the times couples land up for their pre wedding shoot without any idea of posing. Of course, Photographer is there to help you out with posing and other stuff. But it always helps if you have done a bit of your homework before the shoot. It results in a couple being very comfortable during the shoot. Also, couples who have seen some poses before find it easier to pose when photographer suggest them various poses.
6. Have a good night’s rest before your shoot day
It’s important. You don’t want your photos with a sleepy face. Without proper sleep, your pre-wedding shoot will become a tiring exercise for you – as you will be waiting for it to get over. There was this one incident in which a couple landed up on the shoot day without any sleep the previous night. All the time they were waiting for the shoot to get over as early as possible. It was not a good experience for both the couple and us.
Hopefully, I have covered most of the points.
