In recent years, the concept and popularity of a pre-wedding photoshoot have increased tremendously, especially amongst young couples. Also known as an engagement shoot, a pre-wedding photoshoot is all about capturing the romance before the big day.
Pre-wedding photoshoots may include bridal portraits, usually held in an indoor photo studio. Traditionally, brides took the portrait before the ceremony, capturing their anticipatory excitement. And of course, let’s not forget the priceless shots of her wedding gown! Couples who have never taken professional photographs together will enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience. We will take close a look at the top reasons why you should include a pre-wedding photoshoot.
Reason #1- Pre-wedding Photoshoots Relieve your Wedding Planning ‘Stress’
The run-up to the wedding can be extremely overwhelming and stressful. Between dress fittings, creating seating plans, and food tasting, it can be difficult to find a moment for just the two of you. A pre-wedding photoshoot is a chance for couples to have fun and reconnect with each other.
Reason #2 – A Pre-wedding Photoshoot Lets You Get Acquainted with the Camera
Those who are camera shy may treat their pre-wedding photoshoot as a dry run. It’s a great way to eliminate those camera nerves and get comfortable in front of the camera lens before the actual day.
Reason#3 – Pre-wedding Photoshoots Add a Personal Touch to your Wedding
You can use the photos that you take during your pre-wedding photoshoot to craft a unique “save the date” that you can send out to your guests. Brides may upload their photos on a wedding website or use them to decorate the reception. Alternatively, they may feature photos from your pre-wedding shoot on a slideshow that highlights your love story.
Reason #4 – A Pre-wedding photoshoot Offers a Sneak Preview of Your Actual Day
Some brides consider pre-wedding photography to be a dress rehearsal for their wedding day. A pre-wedding shoot is a great way to acquaint yourself with your hairstylist and make-up artist before the big day. You’ll see how you look in professional photos, and advise your style team if you want adjustments for your wedding.
Reason #5 – Pre-wedding photoshoots Provide Reminiscence
Imagine how nice it will be to be flipping through these albums 10 years down the road to revel in your love journey. A Pre-wedding photoshoot provides room for lots of creativity compared to your actual day. Let your imagination run wild and tell your love story through photos!
