Weddings are always faced with joyous hearts and positive attitude. It’s a celebration of love and togetherness between two people and their families. It’s so monumental that every step of it—from the preparations up to the wedding day itself are documented in various forms.
A part of it that’s gaining a lot of attraction and trending now is the prenup photoshoot. It allows the couple to document their memories and feelings when their wedding day is just around the corner.
The nervousness and the excitement can all be seen in these wedding and prenup photos, making it a great piece of memory to look back to. You can tell your backstory to your family and future children with matching photos to have the full experience of this once in a lifetime moment.
So, what are the specific things you can do to make sure you have a perfect prenup photoshoot? Here are some tips you should keep in mind before you and your loved one pose for the camera:
One way to help you decide on the theme and everything is to look back at how your love for each other started. The day when you first met, the location, and even some quirky things like the food on your first date or the day he or she finally met your family—these are all things which can help you intensify the emotion and decide on a theme you both surely want.
Through the time that you are together, you have definitely talked to each other about your common interests. These are the things that strengthened your relationship and could be a helpful element in having a perfect prenup photoshoot. You can start with the activities you both enjoy doing or some favorite hobbies like watching movies, eating out, or binge watching a TV series.
By sourcing your pegs from these, you can make sure that both of you are comfortable in front of the camera because these activities and hobbies are familiar as the back of your hands. You’ll also make sure that the prenup photoshoot concept already has a meaning for the both of you.
After deciding on a theme, you can already build a mood board for all your inspirations. From color palette, hair, makeup, outfit, and even the location, you can find pegs for inspiration for each aspect.
This is to ensure that all your decisions and purchases are in line with the theme you’ve chosen. Surely, you want everything to look cohesive. However, don’t be eaten up by the theme alone. Keep in mind that this is about the both of you, so make sure both of your personalities are evident in person and in photos.
Finding the perfect location can be a tricky one. The travel time, the weather, and the capacity of the location to actually hold a photo shoot (permits and fees) should all be considered by the couple.
Whatever romance and love mean to the both of you, choose that location. You don’t have to be in line with the standards or where most of the couples are taking theirs. Just be in the location you both want to be because when you look back, you’ll find it meaningful and extra special.
The next step is to relay these ideas to your photographer. It is important that the ideas in your mood board and the vibe of the location should translate to the photos that the photographer is going to take.
Even if your photographer is as great as Ralph Wunsch, he won’t be able to execute without a proper brief. Be comfortable with the photographer to not look tense and anxious in the photos.
By getting to know the man behind the lens, both of you will be comfortable with each other and shoot wonderful photos.
Create a timeline for everything to prepare all the things you need. By setting a schedule, not only do you respect the time of all the people involved, but also you and your partner’s peace of mind. The last thing you want in prenup photoshoot is an incomplete set and a hurried schedule.
And lastly, after everything is all set, enjoy and live in the moment. This is a special moment for the both of you. You’ve waited for this moment for such a long time, and it’s now finally coming true.
Don’t be too pressured to strike a perfect pose or have an emotion. All of these should come naturally. Focus on you and your partner and let the photographer do his wonders. Breathe in and breathe out. All will turn out as you expected them to be.
With these tips in mind, you’ll surely have a prenup photoshoot both you and your partner will never forget.
