Wedding are one of those events that require a lot of planning, headache, and hard work. To pull off a successful wedding, the input of no less than two entire families is a must! After all the intensity and hustle bustle of the planning, many couples are left exhausted and it’s often seen that their big day becomes a tiring event which they couldn’t fully enjoy.
Pre-wedding photo shoots have been all the rage since they started and it’s pretty clear why. There are many reasons that pre-wedding shoots are as delightful and memorable and should be a part of your wedding goals.
Versatile and Unique
Pre-wedding shoots are incomparable to the wedding event pictures as they are very versatile and unique. These photos can be however you like so you can let your imagination run wild. Pre-wedding photo shoots can be lovely, pristine, cheeky or sexy. The photographers use their creativity to the fullest to capture and portray the special bond that two lovers share. Pre-wedding shoots are specially customized to make the couple happy and give them a memory that will make them smile years and years later.
A pre-wedding shoot exists just for the goal of creating an awesome pictorial memory which can be arranged on any day and place according to the couple’s wish instead of the schedules and availability of the guests, wedding planners, and venue. That flexibility becomes the deciding factor in the final outlook of the shots as the couple can create a sexy pose under the rain, a balmy dreamy sunset scene or a romantic starry night stance.
The pictures being shot on the wedding day are many times messy and rushed as due to time limitation everything has to go according to the plan and the schedule. The couple on the wedding day try to hide the stress by endlessly giving fake smiles and laughter as soon as the photographer turns the camera to them. Out of the hundreds of pictures that the photographers take, some may come out to be nice but very few are unique as everyone is under the pressure of the time crunch. There is just too much going on for the couple on the wedding event as they need to care about their loved ones and guests.
Freedom to express and experiment
Pre-wedding shoots come with the freedom for couples to literally do whatever they like. The bride doesn’t need to wear white, the groom doesn’t have to act as a gentleman the whole time and the location doesn’t have to be limited to places where weddings are hosted. Many couples do themed shoots dressing as their favorite movie characters in downtown New York, getting kinky in a jazz bar or as wandering nomads in the countryside. Beaches, castles, train stations, hill tops, meadows, forests : the options are endless.
A great gift idea
Instead of a piece of jewelry, a bride pampering style fix or the typical home appliance set, a pre-wedding shoot package can be given to the loved couple as a gift from their friends or close relatives as they make a very thoughtful and everlasting present. Such a photography package is like a more affordable version of a honeymoon travel package because it’s something experienced rather than worn and forgotten.
So for couples who are about to tie the knot, have the desire to create a unique album of their irrevocable love and are looking for some fun, a pre-wedding shoot will be the answer to their matrimonial prayers.
