4 Advantages of a Casual Pre-Wedding Shoot
To all the brides- and grooms-to-be who have let the coronavirus stall your wedding celebrations, don’t let COVID-19 dampen your spirits further. With no end in sight to the situation, why not go ahead with your pre-wedding shoot* first?
Find a wedding photographer who specialises in capturing the fun and candid moments so that the memory of your wedding will remain a joyous celebration all around, unmarred by the negativity. In other words, opt for a casual pre-wedding photoshoot — here’s why it could be a better option for some, coronavirus present or not:
*Note: Of course, we encourage couples to be socially responsible, practice safe distancing measures, and ensure that your entourage consists of no more than 5 people (which is just nice for you and your partner, your photographer, a hair and makeup artist, and a friend or photography assistant)!
1. Scream out your personality
Gone are the days when couples used standard poses. Whether you prefer a day in or a day out, some fun in the fields or a cosy snuggle, the flexibility of a casual candid shoot provides all kinds of possibilities to showcase your couple dynamics and your lovely personalities!
This means no more cookie-cutter shots, and of course, since you’re simply having fun while your photographer works his magic, you can say goodbye to looking stiff and awkward in front of the camera as well.
2. Have a good time
A casual pre-wedding shoot is an artful documentation of your everyday life together. Think of it as your photographer tagging along as you and your sweetheart go on just another one of your romantic dates! It is as laidback as it gets, and this makes the shoot fun, enjoyable, and most importantly, stress-free, especially for those who are camera-shy.
3. Spread the joy (not the virus and negativity!)
Since a casual photoshoot is more like photojournalism, your candid poses, unfiltered emotions, and unconventional backdrops will be a refreshing breath of fresh air to whoever is flipping through your wedding photo album.
The joy encapsulated in your photographs will be contagious, effectively spreading the cheer and your happiness to others when you display them at your wedding reception or show them to your children ten years down the road!
4. Unleash your creativity, no holds barred
A casual pre-wedding photoshoot is also the chance for you to explore endless locations, outfits, and props. Pop open a bottle of champagne (or Coke) and have a picnic under the stars; do all the things you’ve always wanted to try!
You can also own your casual pre-wedding shoot with funky sunglasses and straw hats, flaunt your couple items, and mix and match bold colours — nothing’s too crazy at this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and after all, there is harmony in chaos.
