7 reasons: why you should book for a pre-wedding shoot?

7 reasons: why you should book for a pre-wedding shoot?

Pre-wedding photo shoots are a session that you book with your photographer a couple of months prior to your wedding. Many of our Flatpebble couples book a pre-wedding shoot with us to get comfortable in front of the camera, and they will often use their images to add an extra personal touch to their wedding. Here are 7 reasons: why you should book for a pre-wedding shoot?


Even if you’re already married, in a relationship, or having a destination wedding you can use a Flatpebble photo shoot like this to get some beautiful pics of you and your life-partner.

1. Knock out camera nerves

How to get rid of those camera nerves? Encountering countless heads in front of a camera lens and being photographer between the crowd is an entirely different story. You may find yourself camera shy and without any idea of what you are supposed to do to deal with this. In hindsight, you may feel that you should have had a shoot with your photographer prior to the wedding to build rapport with them and get comfortable in front of the camera.


Booking a pre-wedding shoot with your photographer will give you an opportunity to get to know each other, and get a feel for what to expect on your big day. You’ll have an understanding of how your photographer will direct you on your D-day to get the best images. If you book a Flatpebble pre-wedding shoot, on the wedding day we can assure you’ll feel completely at ease, which will reflect in your photos of course.

2. You can use your pre-wedding photos in your reception slideshow

For something truly special, you can feature photos from your pre-wedding shoot and even the wedding day itself, at the reception. Set aside 5-10 minutes in the evening, pick some beautiful music to go with it, and wow your guests with a slideshow highlighting your love story.


3. Use it on your invitations cards

We recommend doing your pre-wedding shoot at least two months before your wedding day so that it gives us enough time to work with you on putting together a signature guestbook or canvas. It also leaves some breathing room before your wedding so that you’re not stressed or rushed. Some wedding couples also choose to use one or two of the best images from their shoot as part of their save the date or invitation cards.


4. Feature your Pre-wedding photos in your wedding album

A wedding album is a true storyteller. It tells the story of the biggest day of your lives and your love story. What better way to start your love story by including some images from your pre-wedding photo shoot? It’s a fun and informal way to start off your wedding album.


5. A beautiful wall art with your Pre-wedding photographs 

After getting married, of course, you’ll display some of your favorite wedding photos on your wall. How about mixing it up with a few fun and colorful prints from your pre-wedding shoot? Nowadays, couples love to display one or more of their favorite image on a canvas at the entrance to the reception, and then take it hope to hang up at home later.


6. Get photos in a different location to your wedding day

A pre-wedding session is perfect for getting photos done somewhere completely different to your wedding day. You may want to get photos at a certain spot where you often spend time together, or where the proposal happened. Or you may want it at night to feel that intimate vibes with your partner.


If you are going to have it on your wedding day, it’s always good to choose a location near to your wedding venue to maximize time for your location photos. 

7. Guide your photographer

The images from your pre-wedding shoots can help you to tell your photographer which photos you like and why so that they can focus on those type of images on your wedding day. This will help you to get the photos you were expecting on your D-day.


We are sure that we have convinced you enough about how important a pre-wedding shoot is? If not for any of these compelling reasons, book a shoot just to have some much-needed time out with each other. Get some gorgeous images from a Flatpebble pre-wedding shoot to keep forever.

We are all so busy making a living that we often forget to live. Your relationship needs more of your time and less of your money. How to balance work and love?

Why you should be a working mother?

Why you should be a working mother?

Being a daughter, wife and mother are the three key roles a girl plays in her lifetime. She should not be guilty of what she is doing with her love care and concern, she binds her family in a strong bond. As a person, she evolves herself from a girl to a woman. As a wife, she learns to take care of her husband and his family. Then why you should be a working mother?

Later as she stepped into the world of motherhood everything seems so complete. With that little bundle of joy in her arms, she cannot ask for more. Now she has found her true love because she has fallen in love at the first sight. Nothing can change this fact that a baby gives you an immense sense of joy.

After being born as a mother, your husband, family, and baby take the center stage leaving you far behind your dreams and passion. In India, a mother shares more responsibilities than a father does. Now many things have changed and the society has become much progressive but still, you cannot change the mentality in a day if it has been surviving there for years. As a mother, you have to be more responsible for your baby.

Why you should be a working mother?

Today the society has evolved to an extent and a woman, today, are now independent and speak up their opinions. That is what we needed for a long time or we can say we were missing from a long time. Their choices in life have come out of the kitchen and decorating their house interiors.  They still love to do it, but while doing so they want to spend their own money for buying the things for the interiors of their choice and are not dependent on their husband’s money. This is where we can mark a difference. A financial stability and independence.

Being a working mother is again not easy, it has its own downsides. Sometimes getting too busy with office works makes you feel guilty that you are not able to fulfill the responsibilities as a mother. The pressure to excel at your work, taking care of your kid, husband and family can sometimes be burdening and it may leave you exhausted. Being a supermom is surely not an easy task.

Let go of the guilt and stay calm, you cannot make everyone around you happy at the same time. Stop expecting a lot from yourself, the best part is when you are trying your best then there is no point in proving yourself as a perfect mother or wife or daughter-in-law. Share your responsibilities with your partner, both of you should become the role model for your growing kid. All parents go through challenges while growing up their kid, so whether you are working or not it does not make much difference. Parenting is tough anyways.

Stay away from the negative sources who make you feel guilty, you are better than them because you are a working mother. Remember that you are setting a good example for your kid. Take a day off for your kid, spend some free time and do whatever makes your little one happy. Overcome your guilt because you are setting an example and not avoiding your part of responsibilities. Let the people talk, kuch toh log kahenge, logon ka kaam hai kehna…….

Stay happy. 🙂

A tie between like and love!

A tie between like and love!

Can’t get that girl or guy out of your head? Laughing, crying, feeling sad without any reason? Daydreaming when you should be working or working hard to avoid the moments you spent with that person. How can you be at peace with so much confusion? These dizzying thoughts may be signs of love.

Love is not an unknown term for us. First sight love is very famous but what if you have found it in the later period of your time? Are you going to deny it just because the situation demands it? What if you only like the person but are scared of falling in love with him? The tie is between like and love. Can you afford to miss it without giving yourself a fair chance?

The person you met has surprised you for no reason. At first, you hardly pay any attention to and not even really attracted to this person. But as you get to know, you started noticing yourself falling for that person. It’s funny looking back but it kind of just……. happened.

PC: Septive

Falling in love often leads to emotional and psychological instability. When you are in love you bounce between exhilaration, euphoria, anxiety, increased energy, sleeplessness, loss of appetite, trembling, racing heart and many more signs which is hard to explain. Being in love is a form of addiction. You can feel the same when you like a person but taking it forward is simply not possible. Then how you are going to identify its love or like? Your brain is telling you it’s not a good idea but your heart tells you, you can fly without falling.

You may not be able to see the person as often as you want to but deep in your heart, you know you don’t want to let the person go.  Because you still are daydreaming about your precious moments and mementos.

PC: Re-live

Each day of our life has a new page if one is sad other will be happy too. Stop worrying, turn the page and flow with it. Life is too short to regret. But confusion still lies there. What to do then? Don’t judge but share your ideas if you can.

What are the secret thoughts of your mother-in-law?

What are the secret thoughts of your mother-in-law?

Your mother-in-law is saying so many things to you but probably with some hidden meaning. 😉 What to do? How to understand her secret words and thoughts? Handling your mother-in-law is equal to handling the most difficult woman in your life. How can you ignore your whole life seen through the prism of the mother-in-law? Better awake and understand ‘What are the secret thoughts of your mother-in-law’?



PC: Axis

As a daughter-in-law, you want to make your own place in the new house and also in the heart of the family members. If these relations are additions in your life that make it happen for good. In this situation even when the women love each other, they don’t like the interference of each other in their specific zone. Mothers-in-law don’t want to feel excluded of house chores. So in order to avoid the stress of the house shares your part. Talk to each other and manage the things in a better way. As a daughter-in-law, you should address the issue peacefully.

So, what are the secret thoughts of your mother-in-law?

1. You can do it the way you like!

Why are you doing it that way? It definitely means why you are not doing it her way. But how come you can get the nature of that house in just one day. No one understands that trauma of a girl and simply put down the things on the shoulder of the newly-wed daughter-in-law and keep hoping for the excellent from her from the very first day of her wedding life.

We agree that you have to take care of certain things but why to behave in a certain way imposed by them? You should adopt what can be adopted but not all the things which will make you unhappy later. This thing can be applied in both ways, one should adopt or ignore certain things to make a better future and relationship.

2.You are the part of our family now!

It is no secret that daughters-in-law have a complicated relationship with their in-laws, especially her mother-in-law. But believe us that both of you are in the same court of fear. One has the fear of new adjustments in her life and other have the fear of losing her best son.

3.Your opinion is important.

Your mother-in-law might have asked you this but what she actually means is you have to balance the things and it’s not only about your solo opinion.

4.Everyone has to make adjustments

If your mother-in-law is saying so, it directly means anyhow you have to adjust with their family. There is no other way out. Actually, this is true, but what we believe is an adjustment is okay if that brings the positive changes otherwise this should not happen.

5.She is never at fault.

Many wives blame their mothers-in-law for their hubbies’ shortcomings. Your mother-in-law will get defensive. This all will get messy and at the end, you and your husband have to deal with your issues.

What things you should avoid when you become a mother-in-law!

1. Ask my son to put me before his wife.Once my son is married, his wife comes first. I am already emotionally preparing myself for this inevitability. I demand to be punched in the face if I dare throw a hissy fit over the fact that my son is putting his wife ahead of me or loves her more than me. He damn well better love her best, as she will be the mother of his children. This is the way of things.

2. Fold my daughter-in-law’s laundry without her permission. I understand there is something sweet and generous about helping without being asked.

3. Mediate my son’s marital disputes. Mothers-in-law don’t get to have the inside scoop on the young marriage. Ew! If you catch me trying to involve myself in my son’s arguments with his wife, give me a stiff uppercut to the jaw.

4. Rearrange my daughter-in-law’s house. Clearly, the coffee mugs should be stored in the cabinet over the coffee maker. Any idiot can see that. But it’s not my kitchen, so I don’t get to decide where the coffee mugs go. If you see me reorganizing my daughter-in-law’s kitchen, or any other room in her house, for the love of all things holy, punch me. Hard.

5. Ask my grandchildren to keep secrets from my son and daughter-in-law. Parents rule. There is no such thing as “grandma privileges,” other than the ones stipulated by the parents, who are in charge. Always. There is no wavering on this rule whatsoever. Please don’t let me piss off my daughter-in-law and lose babysitting rights over a stupid forbidden bag of candy. Stab me with a hot poker first.

6. Buy my daughter-in-law clothes only I would wear. Clothes that are clearly not my daughter-in-law’s style, but I obviously have some creepy secret desire to turn her into me, because if my son loves his wife when she dresses like me, then that must mean he also still loves me. No. Waterboard me if I ever try to pull a crazy stunt like this.

7. Think my son is perfect. Also known as: “Daughter-in-law is always wrong.” This is delusional behavior, so might as well tie me up in a straightjacket.

8. Think my daughter-in-law is perfect. This might be even worse than thinking my son is perfect because it sets the stage for bitter disappointment once the poor daughter-in-law slips up and reveals her humanity. The straightjacket will do fine for this as well.

9. Enter my daughter-in-law’s bedroom without knocking. Lots of mothers-in-law think a light knock on the door is all that is necessary before barging into a bedroom or a bathroom. WRONG.

10. Offer unsolicited advice. Please, please push me down a flight of stairs if I give my daughter-in-law unsolicited advice. 

11. Show up unannounced at my daughter-in-law place.

12. Criticize my daughter-in-law’s cooking. This includes surreptitiously dribbling hot sauce on things that don’t ordinarily require hot sauce, like spaghetti, or slyly adding salt and pepper to the soup my daughter-in-law has been slaving over all day. She cooked it how she likes it. She thinks it tastes good. She worked hard on it, and even if she doesn’t admit it, she wants to impress me. If I don’t gag that shit down with a sincere-looking grin on my face, make me walk barefoot across a pile of my grandchild’s Legos.

13. Expect my son to mediate a dispute between my daughter-in-law and myself. Just. No.

14. Behave passive aggressively. 

15. Compare me to my daughter-in-law’s parents. Perhaps I believe my son and daughter-in-law prefer spending time with her parents. Maybe they have a higher social status, more money, better education, a bigger house, or healthier family relationships. I should never ever mention these things in front of my children.

PC: Sourav

They are a hundred times more things which can simplify the complicated mother-in-law/daughter-in-law relationship.

  • 1. I want the best for both of you.
  • 2. You are like my daughter.
  • 3. I am so thankful to you.
  • 4. Why you are not having breakfast?
  • 5. Why are you so late today, any issues?
  • 6. Are you not feeling good?

Feel happy from inside, stop expecting much, this tip can work in favor of both of you.

PC: Rajib

A great family combines a wife, husband, kids and grandparents. Your family tree is incomplete without your loving parents. Love them because they have loved you unconditionally. A bit of adjustment is ok, let them understand you and let yourself understand them. Chance should be fair for both of you. Stay together. Share yor thoughts with us below. Keep in touch for more on relationships and marriage.

It started with a cup of coffee!

From friendship to love to marriage, a relationship takes time to evolve but once you understand its meaning and importance in your life, all other things take a back seat.

Most of us are too busy feeling butterflies or planning outfits or composing text messages in the early days of relationships to consider much else. But there are certain things you should do at the start of every new relationship — things that will help to ensure that the vibe between you and your partner starts on the right foot, and continues in an orderly and fabulous fashion.

A strong, healthy, and long term relationships don’t just happen. They take diligence, awareness and a definite sense of being present in the moment. When all else fails a smart dose of honesty and open-mindedness takes the couple to a long way. When you are getting to know someone for the first time you need to work on it. In a new relationship, a nice pinch of vulnerability does wonders too.

PC:Pixonova

But in the end, whether you take an expert advice or an elder support nothing matter so much. Just follow what your heart wants, that is exactly what will work for you. Just find a suggestion from inside and give it a try. It certainly can’t hurt and it might make your new love life a little more smooth-sailing. Flatpebble wishes you a happy and beautiful journey. Please do write your comments and suggestions in our comment box. We would love to hear from you. All the best!

Why an Airbrush Makeup?

Why an Airbrush Makeup?

Why an airbrush makeup is relevant to Weddings?

Blame it on these awesome professional wedding photographers, I tell you! Airbrush makeup technology is the makeup industry’s way of keeping up with the photography technology that’s now available. HD (High Definition) video and photography can now capture details like no other. While earlier, Airbrush makeup was a movie / TV celebrity favorite for shooting, as wedding photographers shoot with such high-quality gear, they are likely to catch little flaws. 


PC: Sourav

Why an airbrush makeup is awesome? 

  1. It looks very even and gives a very natural look in comparison to foundation applied otherwise. You’ll look ‘naturally radiant’ even in your HD photos and videos. 
  2. It looks far from the typical dramatic look. Normally applied makeup usually settles and can appear in pores and wrinkles but not the same with it.
  3. You get that ‘almost nothing’ light feeling. It’s super light!
  4. It’s great if you already have good, clear skin and want that added flawlessness in your bridal or party look.
  5. If you have oily skin, it’s a great option because it’s unlikely to melt away like normal makeup that is applied otherwise. It stays but is not sticky. 🙂
  6. It’s long lasting makeup idea. It tends to stay put for 12-24 hours in a day.
  7. It’s more hygienic for your skin because there’s no direct contact with brushes, hands etc. 

Why an airbrush makeup is not so awesome? 
  1. If you have more pimples or acne, don’t choose this makeup type. It’s so sheer that it’s not suited for those with acne on their face. Those who would need high coverage foundation to hide their scars, an airbrush makeup is not a good choice for them. 
  2. An airbrush makeup is more expensive than a regular makeup. It’s better to watch on your budget too. Don’t be coaxed into opting for this if it’s out of your budget or if it’s not correct for your skin type.
  3. It’s important to make sure that it’s actually being done by an airbrush makeup artist or a makeup artist who specializes in an airbrush makeup. Different makeup artists have a different style of work so be careful while you choose or it can go horribly wrong.
  4. If you have a lot of facial hair or baby hairs, they may still be visible in an airbrush makeup.
  5.  Don’t be taken in by the trend in the city ever. Apply what suits you and your skin.



PC: Sourav
You need to pick what is right for you. If your budget/skin type doesn’t call for airbrush makeup, don’t go for it; You can look just as flawless with regular makeup as well. At the same time, if you are investing in very expensive HD photography and cinematography and have a high budget for your makeup and you have oily, non-acne scarred skin, then it’s worth investing in airbrush makeup.

Candid Photography at a Wedding

Candid Photography at a Wedding

As a girl, it is not even surprising anymore when you open your social media world to find a splatter of gaudy and amazing wedding photographs all over your news feeds. For your wedding, you also want the same! Well, you know it’s a hot trend and everyone from the hip-hop crowd of well-known celebrities to the simple girl-next-door dreams wants to have their entire wedding captured in a cool candid style. But it is not difficult to see the appeal. A candid photography brings out and beautifully encapsulate the rainbow of emotions and feelings that are seen at a wedding. Then, why not break the age-long rules by giving your wedding a ‘candid twist’? Candid photography at a wedding will help you to feel alive with your wedding memories.

Candid photography at a wedding, why?

Breaking the monotony!

See, wedding is a once in a lifetime event for most of us folks here in India and therefore you should store it like any physical memoirs of this occasion of your lifetime, then it should be a thing that you are proud to show off, not embarrassed to look at yourself in future.

Do you want to be left making an excuse when you get old when someone says, “Hey! Let’s get some dust out of those old wedding photographs huh?” You know within a year or so I will walk down the aisle and down the bitter-sweet pill of marriage too, but you should make yourself a few notes when it comes to the kind of photography that will go on at your wedding. You should be able to recognize the quintessential the photos that we are talking about here are the ones without which any Indian wedding album is incomplete.

These photos have evolved over time and are subject to change according to the new fancy poster of a hit romantic Bollywood movie for the season. The photographers go like, “Bhabhiji, bhaiya ke saath woh DDLJ waala pose kijiye na??” and now it might be “Mehndi laga ke rakhna waala pose kijiye na??” Sometimes the couple gets the reference and is quick to obey, but god forbid if they don’t. The photographer will take this as an open invitation to come and manhandle you and your spouse into the required position for their ideal click.

Apart from being made to feel like a mannequin, there are these other typical photos where the photographer unceremoniously captures everyone eating at the delectable buffet line up. Or the ones where the photographer clicks a land space of a morose seated audience, who look like they are paid to be seated.
