Pre-wedding shoots are definitely an opportunity for couples to indulge in their vanity, have fun, and get some beautiful pictures clicked in an informal setup. This is a good time for couples to get comfortable being photographed as well as get tips on how to look good for the camera. It is also an opportunity for the couple to take a breather from the hustle bustle of planning the wedding and spend some quality time together.
At Flgroe, we approach our pre-wedding shoots with the objective of taking images that not only make the couple look their fabulous best but also to capture images that they’d love to show to friends and family to celebrate their young love. We endeavor to make images that will be forever special and hopefully make them go gooey for one other through-out their married life. We encourage couples to share their story and their inspirations for the shoot and work with them to create fun and interesting images.
Planning is an important part of the process to get the most out of a pre-wedding shoot. We like to brain-storm with our couples to pick a suitable shoot location. If they have a special attachment to a specific location in their love story, we try to weave it into the concept of the shoot. We like and suggest locations which have visuals that add an element of interest to the images. This can be interesting lines forming at the steps of Asiatic library in Mumbai or the majestic background of lakes and mountains in Leh. Our job is to able to envision what framing will look good. We also discuss with the couple regarding what vibe/initial impression they what the images to convey. We suggest clothes and accessories accordingly. If they want to we bring in the help of professional stylists and makeup artists to elevate these contributing factors.
We almost always shoot very early in the morning if we are shooting at locations inside cities as it would get uncomfortably crowded otherwise. The results of a pre-wedding shoot really depends on the couple themselves and how completely comfortable they are with each other and with being photographed.
The most important factor to get the best pictures is to just have a whole lot of fun on the day and let the candid nature of the moments be captured by a pro in a beautiful location, wearing nice clothes, and feeling fabulous. 🙂
