Yes, You REALLY Do Need a Pre-Wedding Photoshoot

With raw, full emotions on display surrounded by the people you love, nothing can top the moments during your actual wedding day.

With a pre-wedding photoshoot, you get to decide the exact way you want to immortalise your love story.

It’s practical, too!

A pre-wedding shoot allows you to get comfortable with being in front of the camera for your big day and helps you build a better rapport with your wedding photographer.

Plus, you can use your photos for your wedding invitations and stationery. Win-win!

How to Get Ready for a Pre-Wedding Photoshoot in Singapore

Get that Beauty Sleep

Including you, grooms! Remember, right angles and good lighting can only do so much to make up for tired skin.

You need the energy, too— how are you going to achieve all those running dramatic shots you want?

So, get a good night’s sleep, avoid drinking the night before, and skip the midnight ramen snack.

Prepare for Every Scenario

And by that, we mean everything!

Aside from your pre-wedding photography outfits, make sure to discuss your hair and makeup with your stylists beforehand.

Don’t forget your hands, too. Polish your engagement ring and get a quick manicure. A session won’t take a lot of time, so you can definitely fit it in.

Anticipate any sudden change in the elements as well.

You don’t want to have to smile through your teeth under the scorching Singapore sun or during a sudden downpour.

Here are some items we suggest packing:

  • Umbrella (this can double as a prop for outdoor shoot locations)
  • A change of shoes or two (you might need to change your shoot location)
  • Safety pins
  • Water
  • Sunscreen
  • Wet wipes
  • Battery-operated fans
  • Insect repellant

Practise Posing for Your Pre-Wedding Photos

Just like how you would prepare for your wedding date with a wedding rehearsal, you should also prepare for pre-wedding shoots!

Practise your best pre-wedding poses with your partner and try out different pre-wedding photoshoot ideas.

Ask a friend to take your pictures or take turns doing so with your significant other until you’re satisfied with the poses you can use during your actual pre-wedding photoshoot session.
