Pre wedding shoot is all about your good self.
As a wedding photographer in Indore. I receive many calls from newly engaged couples regarding pre-wedding shoot. But unfortunately all the calls which I receive have no Idea what exactly a pre wedding shoot means. They do not have any Idea about the importance and significance of a pre wedding shoot. Most of them are confused by having discussion with many wedding photographers and their Ideas. When somebody asks me he / she wants to have pre wedding shoot on three or four locations on a single day. At the very moment I come to know that he or she do not have any idea about what exactly a pre wedding shoot.
Its something not about the locations or the landscapes or the exotic locations. Its something about both of your good self. I have seen many pre wedding shoots of different photographers around the world capturing the good exotic locations in the background and place the couple just like the cherry on the cake, too small to even see the facial expression of both. My dear friends, Its pre wedding not vacation to a exotic location. Most of the photographers focus on the locations and the good ambiance not on the faces and the expressions of the couple as it require lots of expertise to capture real expressions of the moments the couple shares during a pre wedding shoot.
Do not make it dramatic, let it be real in terms of expression and the love bond and the feelings you share with your partner. The photo shoot is for both of you not for the rest of world. its something personal moments which you share before the very important day of your life. I mean your wedding day. Be what you are do not try to look artificial, do not wear the costume in which you are not comfortable, and do not use much props like save the date blackboards. You are not going to make content of a film or the photographs which you are going to release for some commercial gain.
This is not a movie, this is your real life. So be what you are with your original expression, body language and wear only those stuffs in which you fell comfortable for a pre wedding shoot. Its something which is for both of you, not for the rest of the world. Let your wedding photographer create the magic of nostalgic pictures, which you will be enjoying whole of your life.
