7 Tips Before You Get-Set-Go for the Pre-wedding Shoot
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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Ask your photographer to shoot portrait & landscape pictures of the same pose & combination of full frame, close up, wide angle & space perspective.
