If your wedding is in the near future and you are considering having a pre-wedding shoot, this article is for you. A pre-wedding shoot is an excellent way to understand your Indian wedding photographer personality and capabilities. It allows you the opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera. This will prepare you well for the photography session that you are going to have. We will discuss some quick tips that will help you begin your search for the right photographer and have the best shoot.
Hire a Photographer That Complements Your Style
Firstly, you need to hire a photographer that can match your personality. One way is to browse through someone’s portfolio and have a good idea about the type of pictures you are going to get. Remember, you don’t want someone who can replicate somebody else style. In the end, you are just going to get disappointed and blame the photographer for your bad judgement. As soon as you visualize yourself in the photographers current working methods, then you have found the right match for yourself.
Ask Questions, And Get Details About the Artist
After you have gone through several photographers’ portfolios and you are considering booking a photographer, you need to ask the following questions:
- Is the photographer available on the specific date?
- The total booking fees and all the paperwork required to confirm the date
- Get all the details about the location and timing
- All logistics involved and the necessary arrangements that you might need to make for the photographer
- Get permission at the venue
- Add-ons cost such as prints, graphics, photobooks, e-books, fusion videos etc.
After getting comfortable with everything, then proceed and confirm your booking. There are some photographers who refuse to share the details until you confirm the book and pay upfront fees. So, you need to be sure that you get all the details before you make a final decision.
Prepare a Shopping List and Go for Shopping
Now you have gone through the tough task of finding the right photographer, and now it is time to think about your dressing. Many shoots go wrong because the couple didn’t bother to get the proper clothes for the clothes or just thought of using extra pair of clothes that you really don’t want to wear in the first place. Ask for advice from the photographer about the dressing. It is best to go out shopping and pick your favorite clothes, mostly the classy ones.
Moreover, you can have the most exotic locations selected, but in the end, it’s the way you look that can make or break the shoot.
Choose the Best Location
There are two types of people confident and shy. If you are the one who likes to enjoy and can go crazy, then the locations like marketplaces, forts, gardens and tourist spots are the best option. With these backgrounds, you get both privacy and elegance. On the other hand, if you are shy and easily get nervous in front of the camera, you need to opt for a more secluded place. This can be the far-away beach, farmhouse, old ruin, back alley of your apartment building, terrace, or garden. Or you can choose two different places with different style and theme; one can be romantic and the other playful.
Let Go and Have Fun
After you are done finding the right photographer, location, clothes, logistics, and much more, you are now ready to take some awesome pictures. Let the photographer take control of everything, let go and rely on his creativity. Once you don’t fret about how you are looking in a picture, only then you can focus on having a good time with your photography session. You are creating memories that you can cherish for years to come, and for this, you need to trust your photographer and enjoy to the fullest.
