Photoshoot Essentials: Here’s What to Know
by Simona Janek
Capturing your wedding day through wedding photography is crucial. Not only does it have the power of telling the beautiful story of one of the biggest days of your life, but it will also immortalise the precious memories that will take place. That way, you can share those treasured instances with your family and friends. Also, with the generations to come.
Having a wedding photoshoot can be exciting, but at the same time, it can also be daunting, especially if you do not know where to start. Hence, allow us to walk you through the most crucial elements that you will need in manifesting a great wedding photography session.
A wedding theme will set the tone of your nuptials. It guides the story of how your photographs will be curated into an exceptional collection of shots. With a myriad of styles and concepts to choose from, the choices can be overwhelming. However, it does not always have to be that way.
Perhaps you and your fiance are nature lovers fond of hiking or going to the beach. You can always anchor your photographs with natural elements or with earth tones. Else, elements of romance such as florals, pastels, and delicate lighting speak to you. Vintage, bohemian, modern, and nautical are impressive choices, too. Just make sure to stick with the one that speaks for you as a couple and as individuals.
While the theme sets the tone of your photographs, the location or venue often makes it. You can look your best wherever you go. However, the surrounding environment is fixed or allows only minimal modifications. Most importantly, it gives your pictures the look and feel of the brand or vibe you want to convey. Hence, dictating how stunning your photos will ultimately end up looking.
Choose a location that reflects your and your fiancé’s personalities as a couple. This can go anything between magical, with hidden rooms, bookcases, and gargoyles, or classical, with sculptures and other pieces of classical art. Else, you can bask in the sun at a sandy beach or find refuge in the entrance of a leafy tropical forest. As long as you are with your other half and both of you commit to a place that shows a bit of your soul, nothing can go wrong!
As the bride, you will have the outfit that will be the highlight of the day. But you should coordinate it with your significant others’ and your bridal party’s, and, of course, your wedding theme and photoshoot venue.
Whether you are going for the classic white or a non-neutral coloured gown, you can always have yours customised in the way you want.
