As a wedding photographer I always want to give the best pre wedding pictures to my couples and from a couple’s point of view they always want to look the best their photos.
So the first question which comes is “What should we wear ?” How many changes? Where will we go and shoot? Do we have to get up early morning for sunrise pics ? How long will it go and so on…
I follow a simple rule, Well Planning = Quality Images, as I don’t believe in hurrying on a couple shoot and handover just a few bunch of pictures.
So the first TIP
Color Coordination :-
Let the couple wear similar shades or contrasting color’s which match with each other. Here is an example of couple wearing similar color complementing each other.
One thing to remember is they don’t have to be the exact same colour. The same colour family would work well too (example: bold red and light red).
STYLE and Posing :-
Usually women always take the attention in every picture, hence the guys have to ensure that your overall feel matches to your partner, Just don’t wear anything , ask your partnr what she is wearing and accordingly decide your outfit , eg. if she is wearing a denim then you can’t be wearing a suit , you have to compliment to what your partner is wearing as seen below
Talk with your your photographer about the Posing techniques and locations you will be shooting at so he can give specific recommendations and Most importantly ,be comfortable and have fun with it! You will have a much better time which will make for better photos.
Variety is the spice of life , Always tell them what kind of pictures can be created at differnt part of daytime and why ?
Above is Sunrise Picture and below one is a Sunset scene.
The above 2 shots were shoot at noon with sun shining over our heads.Best way is to look for shade and know where the sun is and how to take advantage of it and using your sorroundings smartly.I usually prefer shooting in morning or evening but sometimes you have to go as per couple, so then have your plans ready
Other Ideas :Another fun way to make your session unique and fun is to bring props. For example, some fun props are:
– “Save the Date”
– Funny Captions
– Balloons / Bubbles
Finally, the most important thing to remember is all you have to capture is EXPRESSIONS as they say a thousand words…So for your next couple shoot Goof off, make faces, cuddle, laugh, play.
In short, have fun and bring your ‘A’ game!
In the end give loads of variety of shots to your couple from wide angle to close up to scenic to lights and shadwos etc…like the once put below.
