Why Pre-wedding Shoots are Essential
Pre-wedding shoots are a modern take on the traditional engagement shoots that were common in the past years. It has become such a great trend these days that more and more newlyweds are signing up. A simple one to two hour pre-wedding shoot a few weeks or months before your big day can work wonders!
Situated in Kwa-Zulu Natal, we at Eloise Photography have always loved doing pre-wedding shoots. We like to build up a good relationship with all our wedding couples so that on their big day, we know exactly how they want their special day to be photographed. Many of our couples book a 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. Take a look at why we think pre-wedding shoots are absolutely essential.
Eliminate Camera Nerves
Let’s start off with the most important one – getting rid of those camera nerves. Not many people like, or are comfortable being photographed. Couples always say they are not very photogenic, but the truth is nobody thinks they are photogenic. Spending time having your photographs taken in a relaxed and leisurely manner will make things a little easier on your wedding day; some of the nervousness will go and anything that can reduce nerves on your wedding day has got to be good hasn't it?
Get a Hair and Make-up Trial
Pre-wedding shoots are a great way to “try out” your hair stylist and make-up artist before the big day. You’ll get to see how you’ll look in professional photos, and advise your style team if you want any adjustments made for your wedding.
Modelling Crash Course
As professional photographers, we want the photographs from your wedding day to be the best they can possibly be. Having a pre-wedding shoot will give us an opportunity to advise you on how to stand (individually and together), how to look at each other and embrace each other to make beautiful priceless photographs.
The most important thing is that a pre-wedding shoot with us, installs confidence in our couples and allows them to see how their big day will unfold. At Eloise Photography, we never forget that our newlyweds put a huge amount of trust in us to capture their love story perfectly. Contact us today to set up an appointment before your big day.
