How To Ace Your Pre-Wedding Photoshoot?

Having to deal with brides and grooms on a day-to-day basis, our professional experience had taught us a few key pointers which couples could greatly benefit in regards to what to prepare and expect during the pre-wedding photo shoot.

1. Establish optimal communication with your photographer and bridal makeup artist to convey your ideal theme and style

Communication is the crucial fundamental for a team on achieving the work of art in the same direction. As brides and grooms, you have a part to play as well. Your photographers and bridal makeup artist are the creative heads that would be piecing the entire masterpiece together with elements contributed by you. With a clear annotation or discussion regarding your personal ideal styling to your photographer and bridal makeup artist, they would be able to have a clearer thought on helping you to ensure that your ideal personal styling or theme could be reflected in the photographs.

Moreover, photographers and bridal makeup artist would be able to provide you with directions or guidance towards achieving the specific art direction optimally based on your budget with the search of elements that best suits the theme (gowns, suits, shoes, props elements, style of makeup, hairdo, location etc).

2. Work towards your optimal figure constantly before the pre-wedding shoot
