10 Things You Should Know Before Your Pre Wedding Shoot

Most of the couples take being themselves for granted when it comes to a pre-wedding shoot. For example, lets say you and your spouse like mountains. Then to do a pre-wedding shoot on a beach just because it is what everyone around is opting for, is one of the worst mistakes you will make. Remember that if you are uncomfortable, it will reflect in your photos.
2. Why just one place?
This is where you take the phase “Change is the only constant” literally. Choose a couple of places or surroundings that are not connected to each other. For example, a field, an abandoned warehouse, your favourite car etc. Each place will add a unique dimension to your picture.
3. Colour and Costume
Your dressing will set the tone of the pre-wedding shoot. Matching, coordinated, contrast or mismatch, discuss how you want to be paired. Procrastination or ignorance in this regard will only be disastrous.
This is the best and the most effective way to add some artistic creativity to your pre-wedding shoot. There are no limits when it comes to props. From a simple swing set to a lavish tree house, you can take a simple thing and give it your own definition.
