You probably remember the days you’re pored over your parents’ wedding album and that was about it. Today, there are a host of different shoots for every special occasion, including the all-important and much-awaited wedding day. A majority of couples around the world are now choosing to capture and document their days before marriage, and the results have been stunningly diverse to say the least. Naturally, every couple wants something special and unique, so here are a few tips to get the ball rolling.
Nail Your Style Down
Just because one style suited a particular couple exceptionally well, it does not necessarily mean the same will be true for you. What is your personal style? What sort of set up would capture the both of you in your best form? The idea is to one day look back at these pictures and reminisce, thinking about the exciting days that were before your wedding. Do you want something very sophisticated and chic or most rustic and easy-going? This will also help you plan your Singapore wedding photography better.
Just like a destination wedding, a destination pre-wedding photoshoot would require a significant amount of planning, although admittedly will not entail as much responsibilities. Try not to book a location too far away unless of course you are flowing in cash and can afford to fly around at whim. Pick a place that is secluded, so both of you can feel comfortable posing and doing your thing. Maybe pick a place you both really love or where you went on your first date for instance.
Screen Your Options
These photographs will be yours for the rest of your life, and countless people will be looking through them as well over the years. Needless to say, you want them to be as flawless as possible. Which in turn means that you need to screen your potential photographer thoroughly. List a few options, and then meet with them personally either at their photo studio or in your own home, whichever works.
You can only understand so much by talking, so make sure the photographers show you their portfolios. This is part of the screening process as well, so do not skip it. This will give you a better idea of their skills, including how well they make use of a bad situation, say unexpected rain. The best photographers are those who integrate the surroundings effortlessly into each frame, as opposed to making them the focal point.
