Different Kinds Of Pre-Wedding Photography

Saying for better or worse and I do are the most exciting parts for every couple alongside having cake at the reception. To make sure everything will be in order on that special day, couples usually plan their wedding months or even years in advance. The caterers and the church are booked, the gown and tux are fitted and the wedding entourage is finalized just in time for the big day. In order to have nice photographs to use for the invitations and to also get to know the photographer more, the pre-wedding shoot is done before the actual wedding day.

There are different pre-wedding photography appointments that couples nowadays have with their photographer. There are different types of pre-wedding photography that couples can avail. These are: a save the date photo shoot, an engagement or pre-nuptial photo shoot and a test photo shoot at the wedding location. Since these all happen before the wedding, the couple could use the photos taken.

Just so they have pictures in their save the date video the couple will have a save the day photo shoot. Asking the guests of the wedding to save a specific date is basically its purpose. This is like the announcement of then the couple plan to get married, where and at what time. The romantic stages of the couple’s love story before they decided to get marries could be shown here. The fun and playful side of the couple will be shown here. It can be done at locations memorable to the couple like where they met or where they shared their first kiss.

After the save the date photo the engagement or pre-nuptial photo shoot follows. Couples have different preferences when it comes to shooting their save the date and engagement shoots: some would like to do it all in one time while the other would like to do it separately. Most often, one of the prominent subjects of the pre-wedding photography shoot is the bride’s engagement ring and it is often held in a romantic location. It can also be done at a memorable place for the couple like the save the day shoot. You can see these photos in the invitation or in the backdrop at the reception. This shows the more romantic and lovey-dovey side of the couple.

The last part of the pre-wedding shoot is not a formal shoot. Having knowledge of the location before the day itself is a basic requirement of the photographers. The clients may be asked by the photographer to have a test shoot at the venue in order to know where the lights enter what lensesn to use and what other types of equipments to bring. These shoots will be taken few days before the actual wedding.

All these pre-wedding photography shoots provides interaction between the photographer and the clients making them more at ease and comfortable with each other. Through this the photographer will have easier time to shoot during the wedding day itself.
