The pre-wedding photo shoot is a session that you book with your photographer a couple of months before your wedding. Many of our couples book a shoot with us to get comfortable in front of the camera, and they often use their images to add an extra personal touch to their wedding. Here are the top 5 reasons why we think a pre-wedding shoot with your wedding photographer is absolutely essential.
Even if you’re already married, in a relationship, or getting married, you can use a shoot like this to get some beautiful images of you and your partner.
1. GREAT IMAGES
When you book a pre-wedding shoot with your photographer, you will be able to get some amazing images. You can tailor an entire session around yourself, your personality, and your mood. With the freedom to choose a location, theme, and attire, you can expect some breathtaking imagery that you will cherish for a lifetime!

A pre-wedding shoot helps build a stronger relationship with your photographer. It will build trust in your photographer and it’ll be easier to communicate with him on the wedding day since you’ve worked together prior to it. This will lead to improved wedding day imagery.

Create a beautiful personalized signature guest book with images from your pre-wedding shoot. You will love watching the guests crowd around these at wedding receptions, writing their messages, and flipping through the whole book. The signature guest book becomes a keepsake that you can flip through and remember your day and the well-wishes of the people who were with you.
You can also choose to use one of your best images from your shoot as part of your save-the-date or invitation cards.

The most important thing you should keep in mind is to be yourself, have fun, and enjoy the limelight!
The low-stress situation of the informal pre-wedding photoshoot can, and usually does, produce great photos for the couple, and strengthen the bond between them (by putting them on the same side of the camera and working together to produce the photographs). You can even introduce different props to make your shoot a unique one.

It will help you stay relaxed in front of the camera. You will also have a better understanding of posing and as a result, you’ll be able to move in and out of poses quickly because you will already be attentive to and understand the little details.
