Pre-wedding shoot ideas with actual photos!
So you want to do a pre-wedding shoot, but you want something out of the ordinary. One easy solution is to do an overseas shoot, but this isn’t always possible due to budget constraints. Fret not! Here are some ideas to help create an album of memories that you’ll treasure for the rest of your lives.
It’s your wedding, so why should you get caught up with what other people are doing? Don’t be afraid to include objects, locations or activities that have special significance to you or your relationship. The place where you first met, maybe a shot of you both sharing your favourite dessert, something you made together in a craft workshop, the list is endless! Maybe matching t-shirts are your thing – go for it!
The path less travelled
If you want to get off the island for your shoot, don’t be afraid to take the unconventional route. Paris may be the city of love, but who says you can’t capture your love somewhere else? If your first holiday together was somewhere in the region like Bali, that would be an ideal choice. Or maybe find a secluded beach for a casual but oh-so-sweet shoot together.
Are you one of those couples that have been together since school days? It would be fitting to pay tribute to your alma mater by showcasing the place where you fell in love.
Or maybe your love blossomed because of common interests and passions – perhaps a love of vintage items and the glamorous days of the roaring 1920s.
Your other best friend
In Hollywood, there’s a saying to never work with children and animals. We couldn’t disagree more! Wedding photos with animals (and kids, in the case of actual day photos) are so endearing because of their natural earnestness.
Build an understanding
At the end of the day, it’s really important to find a photographer that shares your vision, and understands how to bring it to life. That’s part of the reason why we created Knotz. We want to create an easier way for you to find the right photographer – someone who is excited to capture your story. Head over to our photography section to browse the rest of the portfolios!
