Since the wedding is one of the most important events in the life of people, we would all like to immortalize these moments through photos and videos. It is just natural to be nervous on the big day and it is also possible that you won’t really have the disposition to make preset photos because of all the stress that you are going through.
To know what to do and how to pose, it might be a really good idea to make a pre wedding photo album.
This happens after you have found your photographer. It helps the future bride and groom to know that it isn’t important to take the pictures at the wedding. It is also a good idea to take them at the engagement party, or on a random day, when you have the time.
The setting might be a nice place that you like or that you have some memories with. You might choose the location where the two of you have met or where he popped the question. In case you think these are clichés, pick a place that you simply think is beautiful.
Practice some poses to know which ones are the most suitable for you. You can be sure that after this day you will be able to look in each other’s eyes without laughing, and you will be masters at smiling while taking the photo.
There are numerous styles to choose from, including one that has already been mentioned. You might make a trip to a nice park or some other scenic location. Another really good idea will be to make some close-ups of some objects that are related to the event, such as the engagement ring, or the two of you holding hands.
There are some people who like the preset photos, but if you are looking for natural pictures, ask the photographer to follow you around and to take some shots when he or she thinks that the moment is worth to be immortalized.
Another option that you may want to take into consideration is to take some photos in your home. This solution might be optimal in case you are living together, otherwise there is no magic.
In case you are planning to have a winter wedding, you might take some photos in the summer, on a beach for example, but you might do things on the other way around as well. If you have a summer wedding, you might make some shots in the snow. What could be more romantic than the falling snowflakes?
In case you are looking for something simpler and in this case you might opt for taking the pictures in a studio with a plain background, trying different poses.
After the photos have been done, you might ask the photographer to show them to you both in color and in black and white to see which version you think is better. Don’t forget that this can be the perfect time to be a little crazy and don’t be afraid to try different poses, even if they seem a little awkward at the beginning.
