What is a Pre-Wedding Shoot & Why you should get one done ?
Photographer Soumen Nath, who has shot several Pre Wedding Couple shoots in the past tells us why Couples should consider this activity worth the experience & make these memories stay with them forever...
Pre-Wedding Couple shoot was almost unheard off ten years ago. However, the young generation of today is more than enthusiastic about getting a Pre-Wedding couple photo shoot done.
A Pre-Wedding shoot captures the Love-chemistry of a couple before the actual wedding. After the wedding, familiarity grows and the Love chemistry changes its colours. Obviously the couple grows more intimate.
However, before the wedding, they share a different chemistry. Its more lovey-dovey and they feel and savor each other’s touch and glances more, almost like teenagers. They are raring to explore each other and are very enthusiastic. A Pre-Wedding shoot captures those special feelings and emotions, which will soon be replaced by deeper intimacy and greater acquaintance.
Today, Pre Wedding Couple shoot has become almost a mandatory ritual for many couples. Couples scout for locations and themes for their shoot and want to make it one of the most special events of their wedding. Some couples want to recreate the scene of their courtship days. So they take their photographer to their favourite places, places where they have been on dates with each other or proposed to each other. Some couples want to get their first love letter photographed and preserved for the rest of their life. Some couples simply leave it on the photographer to unleash his creativity and capture their love in a candid way.
Pre-Wedding shoots are most often require the couple to pose and each shot has to be pre-conceived, planned, and staged. When a new couple approaches me, they are often shy and confess that they are not good actors and cannot really pose. They do not feel confident that they would be able to get good shots. However, over the years I have learnt to capture the candid moments even during such Pre-wedding shoots. I have been able to get good pictures of couples who thought they do not look good and can’t pose. I only need willing participants.
Most of the couples are a little anxious at an Engagement/Wedding photo shoot, as for many, it’s their first ever introduction to a Professional Photo shoot. One of the key reasons we do a Pre-Wedding Photo shoot is to relax the couple, so when it comes to their big day they know what to expect and we know what works best for them. If you are booking a Wedding Photographer, I cannot recommend strongly enough that you have a Pre-Wedding photo shoot done.
