Wedding day timing and photosession route
Discuss with the photographer the timing of the wedding day and the route of the photo shoot. What is the dress code at the wedding and is there one? Will there be a bride’s morning? Who picks up the bouquet and when? Who will have the rings? Is the photo session of the newlyweds held before marriage registration or after? What locations would be especially important for you to visit during your wedding day?
References are important
If you would like to get some specific ones in the final series of shots (for example, with lighting effects or unusual angles), discuss this point with the photographer in advance. It will be ideal if you provide examples of such frames (references). Thus, the photographer will take this moment into account when shooting, and you will get the desired shots.
Combine your bridal look rehearsal with your pre-wedding love story
Before the wedding photo session, I try to conduct a love story photosession for the newlyweds. At the same time, most brides rehearse their wedding look with a make-up artist and hair stylist. It will be cool if you can combine this rehearsal with shooting a love story and hold them on the same day. The bride, as a rule, will feel comfortable with makeup and hair, the groom will admire her. Such emotions are worth capturing.
Threads on clothes
Trim loose threads on clothing. It will take you 5 minutes, and the photographer will save a lot of time on processing. Do you want to get finished shots as soon as possible?
Manicure: not only for the bride
Bride’s manicure — everything is clear here, almost everyone does it. But it is also desirable for the groom to do a hygienic manicure before the wedding: remove dirt from under the nails and carefully cut them, remove burrs.
A buffet for guests, a photosession for couples
If possible, it is better not to take relatives and other guests with you to the photosession (I mean a photo walk for the newlyweds). To entertain guests, you can, for example, organize a buffet table for them. At this time, the photographer will calmly take wonderful shots for you. And you will feel comfortable, and no one will interfere with the photographer to do his job.
Don’t be afraid to show your feelings. If you want to kiss — kiss, bite — bite, cry — cry, dance — dance. Movement and emotions are wonderful!
Happy wedding! :)
