We talk a lot around here about the importance of scheduling a pre-wedding photo session, whether it’s an engagement shoot or one in which you and your partner will actually be in your wedding-day attire that will also include your wedding party. Whatever you do, though, pre-wedding shoots allow you to get more comfortable with your photographers and their process.While your poses and positions as well as any props you choose to incorporate into your pre-wedding shoot will obviously make a big difference in the end results, the background and setting will also play a huge part in getting beautiful pictures. That’s why it deserves some careful thought, and a discussion with your photographers.
However, heading to the spot where you two met, had your first date, or reached some other early milestone in your relationship is always worth a thought. There’s just something about returning to a special location like that, and you don’t have to spend the entire session there either. That is, if you don’t want to and it’s feasible to travel a bit on the shoot day.
