Getting married is one of the biggest milestones in an individual’s life and also one of the biggest turning points in the lives of not one, but two people together and to document the same in the form of photos and videos is a given. However, modern times have taken that concept to another level where almost 5-6 months before the wedding day, the couple goes for a pre-wedding shoot. The debate on whether a pre-wedding shoot is worth it or not depends from couple to couple, but in my personal opinion, it is definitely worth it for a pre-wedding shoot/engagement shoot can help you in many ways; for example, if you have the same photographer assigned on your wedding day as the one for your pre-wedding shoot, then it can help you to establish a rapport with him/her and let’s admit it, not all of us are born models and photogenic. But once you get to know your photographer, you won’t be having a hard time posing on your big day. Also, an engagement shoot helps you to bond with your partner too; it gives you a chance to discover what kind of a person he/she is, how casual they are or how formal they are, etc. and give you the time to mold yourself for the future.
SOME CONCEPTS FOR MESMERIZING SHOOTS
Nailing a pre-wedding photo shoot is not difficult at all provided you have an utterly professional pre-wedding photographer with you. If at the same time you are one of those creative couples, then yours and the creativity of your photographer are bound to leave you with an everlasting piece of memoir in the form of an album that is bound to bring back nostalgia every time you flip the album even after decades. If, however, you are not creative-minded then fret not, for we have compiled a list for you of some of the most romantic and beautiful setups for you to choose from and execute:
Going back to your roots dressed completely in traditional attires is one of the best ways to strengthen the bond with your partner and show off your cultural elements in style. Ask your photographer for black and white or sepia themed pictures taken at a location that highlights and accentuates the vibes of your culture and bring a picturesque view to your pictures.
Like I said before, not all of us are photogenic and often tend to become conscious in front of a camera. For such couples, the best option is to go out for some activity and let the photographer do his work silently.
A lot of couples are not much for glamour or flaunty stuff. They like everything simple and normal and so for them, a shoot should not be extravagant. For such people, the casual setup is the way to go. Doing simple things in simple clothes brings out the best of 2 simple people during engagement shoots. You may recreate your first meeting or display your hobbies for more a vibrant feel.
