We know that you are not a model or a professional actor to start posing for the pre-wed shoot. However, if you have done the rekey & shortlisted the right kind of crew, most of your worries can be set aside. Speak to 3-5 service providers & check their profiles & sample work before you finalize on the shoot. Have good rest/sleep one day prior to the shoot. Be nice to the crew & interact with them to get good candid photos, since communication will ensure clarity of your expectations

  1. Ask your photographer to share his work & the poses that suit your profile. If you have any specific poses to be taken share it with the photographer in advance & keep a reference on your mobile.
  2. Be on time as agreed with the crew. Professional pre wedding photographers will give you 30 minutes to an hour to acclimatize for the shoot & the location. Do not be in a hurry & time block your shoot locations.
  3. Maximum shoot location should be two per day, in case you are going for multiple location shoot. Preferably, 1st one in the first half of the day & 2nd after lunch. This will give you time to change your clothing for the second location & a short break for lunch.
  4. Ask your photographer to shoot portrait & landscape pictures of the same pose & combination of full frame, close up, wide angle & space perspective.
  5. Mix candid & Traditional poses & ask for a preview of the shoot on the camera viewfinder to reassure your specific pose capture.
  6. Best time for the shoot would be the Golden Hour, the first hour after sunrise & the last hour before sunset. Plan your travel & readiness based on the time slot assigned by the photographer.
  7. Things you should carry on the shoot day. Water, umbrella, makeup kit, comb, mirror, back up dresses, add on flat footwear, shades, Props for the shoot, mat, wet tissue swipes.
    • For Men: Minimum two formal wear & two casual wear, shoes to match.
    • For Ladies: Two pair each of Indian/Traditional wear, Western wears in case you are comfortable.
