Few things to be kept in mind before the pre-wedding shoot

  1. CHOOSING A PHOTOGRAPHER– Your photographer’s previous work on social media or on website can give you insight about his style of shooting. If his style matches with your style, then you can check on his availability on the dates you plan your shoot and many photographers may not discuss the location without the booking. Also be very clear in knowing Why should you hire a Professional Photographer.
  2. LOCATION –  generally depends upon the kind of shoot that you have in mind. If you plan to go ahead with two themes, one location might not work for you. For example traditional theme looks better if it’s shot at some royal architecture where as playful theme can be shot even on streets. Talk to your photographer if you plan to go ahead with both. Once you book your photographer then you can discuss about the location and theme. A good location will always help the photographer shoot something different and cool.

  3. DRESSES– Anything that suits you the best. It can be related to the theme that you have in mind for the shoot. Avoid experimenting the same day with dresses. Do your homework on the makeup and what you are going to wear. You can even pick 3-4 dresses for a day’s shoot.Check out on how you can make a quick choice in What you should wear on your Pre Wedding for pre wedding shoot forest
  4. Time for the shoot – The best timings for the shoot are mornings and evenings. Remember, a good photographer can create sunset anytime 😉

  5. Be in your best mood since no Photoshop or app can perfect a fake for pre wedding shoot picnic
  6. Avoid Coming with Friends and Family to the shoot – Please please please do not come with your friends and family for the pre-wedding couple shoot. It becomes really difficult for some couples to give that perfect shot since they are busy getting conscious seeing others.
  7. REST IS IMPORTANT – We request you to have plenty of rest a day prior the shoot and plan that there should not be any run around for dresses etc or travelling from one city to the city where we have planned the shoot. No drooping shoulders and stressed face can be fixed via filters or photoshop. pre wedding guitar photo
  8. STAY FULL – Stay hydrated, keep drinking water when shooting, come well fed as Pre wedding shoot can be tiring for those who have not eaten well. Especially ladies because dressing up and makeup take the lead and food takes the back seat. Keep things ready for munching in a pouch, dry fruits or energy bars. Sometimes the shoot location is not a commercialized location so carry water along.
  9. BE ON TIME– It is quite a task. Believe you me, Out of 10 only 2 couples make on time and I am serious !! Generally locations which are booked for shoot are time bound and hence we should try to make the most of the time bought. The couple needs to understand that we are photographing non actors who are actually not habituated to camera and lights. There are “n” numbers of retakes if the pictures don’t come out well. It is a pressure on to the photographer also to deliver number of pictures promised if the couple reaches the venue late. Reaching late at the venue may cost you losing number of pictures promised. Pixelworks Photography will not be responsible in compensating for the time lost due to your reaching late at the venue.
  10. NEVER SAY NO TO COMFORT – Keep Sneakers or comfy shoes for walking and as in when there’s a shoot time change to heels. Staying in heels for long will tire you to the hilt and the shoot will get affected.pre wedding shoot tips
  11. BUBBLES AND SMOKE BOMBS – These props are dependent on wind and its direction. The pictures may or may not come as expected.
