More and more couples are opting for pre-wedding photo shoots nowadays, and there’s a variety of reasons why.
A pre-wedding shoot is a great way to get to know your wedding photographer, and for them to get to know you. For this reason, an increasing amount of photographers are including pre-wedding shoots in their packages. It’s worth asking your photographer about them as then they can get to know how comfortable you are in front of a camera, and what works best for you and your husband to be. This will help you to have even better wedding photos.
A pre-wedding shoot is also known as an engagement shoot, and the pictures will make for happy mementoes of your betrothal period. It’s a fun way to mark the start of your wedding journey and to capture the excitement that comes with being newly engaged and planning a wedding.
The images from your pre-wedding shoot could also be used practically in the run up to your wedding. You can email them to your guests with your wedding information on, or turn them into keepsakes to give out to your nearest and dearest as wedding favors or souvenirs.
It gives you the chance to get to know your photographer better, easing any anxiety on the big day itself, as well as resulting in precious images of a special time that you can cherish forever — it’s a win win situation.
