It’s a great way to bond

If you’ve known your partner for a long time, a pre wedding photo shoot is the perfect opportunity to take your chemistry to the next level altogether. You could shoot more intimate photos and they will turn out beautifully because you two already have a great comfort level with each other. If, on the other hand, your partner and you haven’t really had the chance to get to know each other (besides each other’s names), this shoot will help you both overcome any shyness. Think of a place or places that you would like to get clicked at and get started!

You get awesome clicks for life

Your wedding day photographs will be beautiful too no doubt but considering that you will be clicked in the midst of so many people, posing and looking relaxed will be the last things on your mind. When you opt for a pre  wedding photo shoot, you get to decide what kind of images you would like with your photographer. If you would like to go with a theme and use actual props, you could do that too. Not to forget, changing your clothes according to the mood of the moment. Someday, when you look through those pictures, you’ll remember the fun you had shooting them.

Photographs can be used creatively

If your pre wedding photo shoot has been scheduled for a few months before your wedding, you could choose the best snap for your wedding invitation for an even more personal touch. You could even have your own slideshow presentation on the wedding day itself or at the reception. Create your own guestbook and ask your guests to leave behind a note for you and your spouse. Get a customised set of coffee mugs made as a thank you gift to your guests with a collage of your photographs on them. And, while you’re putting your creative ideas to the test, don’t forget to get a great photo of your pre wedding photo shoot framed for your home as well.

Bond with your Photographer

Many couples meet their photographer on the wedding day itself and expect great photos on that one occasion. Needless to say, it puts a lot of pressure on the photographer to deliver mind blowing snaps that win your approval. When you choose to have a pre wedding photo shoot, you allow your photographer to put his creativity to the test by suggesting the best angles, poses, background and locations for the two of you. Besides allowing you two to get comfortable with him, it also allows him to get to know you both better. You can relax knowing that your photographer will do his best for you on your wedding day too!
