A wedding ceremony is the commencement of union between two people who have decided to spend the rest of eternity together. But sometimes, amid all the hustle-bustle of rituals, celebrations, and the emotional roller coaster ride, some precious moments can easily be missed by the couple or their loved ones.
Pre-wedding photoshoots are a great way to cherish precious moments, and they are also perfect for to-be-wed couples looking to spend some quality time together while making precious memories that last a lifetime!
From a technical point of view, pre-wedding photoshoots are a superb way of getting familiar with the photographer’s personality while they get to understand your aspirations and style. The constant pouting and posing prepare the couple for the journey that lies ahead and the picture marathon they will have to go through on the actual wedding day.
From stunning backdrops to experiencing togetherness along with a hint of candidness, here are a few tips to ensure the pre-wedding photography turns out to be flawless!
#1: Ensure The Pre-Wedding Photographer Matches Your Style
Book a photographer who is also an exceptional portrait photographer and also has expertise in lifestyle photography and event photography because while they’re somewhat different photography genres, this way you’ll know that they will not only cover the intricate details of the wedding but will also capture intimate, candid moments that showcase your personality.
You can also discuss the style of photography you’re looking for and whether the photographer is comfortable and capable of copying the style. It’s best to leave it to the photographer as they know how to add magic while capturing timeless moments.
#2 Choose A Location That Makes You Both Comfortable
Market places, farmhouses, gardens, tourist spots, exotic properties, beaches, forts, temples… the list goes on. While there are countless popular indoor and outdoor locations for pre-wedding photography in Toronto, decide whether you want your photographs to make you look larger than life or you would be comfortable in a more secluded place.
Some couples also prefer combining two different locations for variation or book two different sessions with unique styling for each—one can be playful while the other can be romantic.
#3 Let It Flow
Trust the pre-wedding photographer’s creativity and be confident in your skin. Once you let go of the worry about how you’ll end up looking in the picture, you can focus on having some fun with your better half, have fun, be playful, laugh, try fun poses or romantic poses, look into each other’s eyes—whatever works for you in the moment!
Another great tip is to treat the shoot with some respect! Get a good night’s sleep so that you look well-rested and radiant, turn off your phones, schedule the day accordingly so that the shoot is done during your free time, be on time for the session, and listen to the trusted photographer because professional photographers know how to make you look awesome!
