The thought of prewedding photography will get people excited. Some people may be nervous about the procedures and poses during the pre wedding photography. Some people, especially the grooms, may dread about the need to wear thick clothes under the hot sun during the outdoor pre wedding photo shoot. Some people may not even be able to fall asleep at night visualizing the actual day of their pre wedding photography. All these are understandable as pre wedding photo shoot is after all most people’s first time taking part in a photo shoot uniquely set up for themselves. Moreover, we all want to look great during our wedding photo shoot and produce the most beautiful wedding photographs out there.
To calm your nerves and prepare for your pre wedding photo shoot so you do not mess it up during the actual day, these are some things you will need to do:
1. Research and practice some intimate poses with your spouse. During the pre wedding photo shoot, you will be required to carry out intimate poses with your spouse. If you are not good at posing or if you will feel shy to pose in front of strangers (i.e. the wedding photographer and passer-by), you may be displaying some awkward poses or expressions during the photo shoot. It will make your photographs look really awkward. To mitigate this issue, you can practice some intimate poses with your spouses beforehand. Get comfortable carrying out the poses with your spouse first. During the actual day, try to visualize and feel the same comfort level when you are carrying out the poses and ignore everyone around you.
2. Plan all the logistical needs for the pre wedding photo shoot for you and your spouse. Generate a list of all the essential items that you will need to bring to the wedding photo shoot. These include sets of suits and gowns, shoes, make up equipment, sunblock lotion and a towel (if you perspires easily under the sun).
3. Get ready contingency plans in case the wedding photo shoot cannot go according to the main plan. Discuss with your photographer on the alternative plan to take if certain events occur (such as rain and the location being unavailable to public).
