What is a pre wedding photo shoot?
A pre wedding photo shoot is a chance for the couple to get together with their wedding photographer in the run up to the big day, usually at a venue of their choice, and to have some portrait photos taken. This is a photo shoot that usually takes place few months prior to the wedding day. Though pre-wedding shoot have become a necessity to preserve memory forever.
What is the purpose of a pre wedding photo shoot?
There are several reasons to book a photo shoot in the run up to the wedding and these are a few of them:
You have the chance to get to know your photographer so you are more comfortable spending a large portion of your wedding day with them and also get to know his or her shooting style. For your photographer, it's also the time to get to know more about you as a couple; your characters, how affectionate you are with each other, how formal or casual your styles are. This way, they can create suitable settings that will flatter the both of you during your pre-wedding shoot and wedding day.
So the less you make your modeling portfolio about yourself, and the more you make it about your ability to help a client sell their product or service, the better your chances are of being signed by an agency and booking work as a model.
