Once you have identify the style and feel that you want, start to look through each photographer”s
galleries to get a sense of their style, and choose a suitable photographer whose style and vision
matches for you.
Discuss all this with your wedding photographer; be as open and comfortable with him/her. The move you
express on kind of picture you wish, the better they will understand and provide you with the
best of the pictures.
Based on type of pictures you wish to have from the category, and consult your photographer for the costume.
For instance, if you want a silhouette kind of picture then best dress for that is slightly hugging
clothes so that a nice body is seen, alternatively if going for a monument than a casual dress won’t
look nice, may be a traditional outfit might look good.
As they say”A picture speaks a thousand words” and your pre wedding album can embody your
love story. Some couples choose to have their photoshoot at the place where their love story
started, like a coffee shop, university/school where they used to meet, movie theatre or a
place they love visiting.

Once you hand over sample shot list to your photographer, ask him/her for recommendations
on location. Some locations are free entry; some places will need to ask for permissions and
some locations looks very beautiful at certain time of the day. Hence once you freeze on number
of locations you wish to shoot, ask your photographer for action plan for your shoot.
Proper Selection of Dress
Proper Selection of Dress adds beauty in the wedding photo. In this case, you have two options. You may both buy or rent dresses. Most of the photography firms have wedding dress rental services. Visit their outlets if possible. Before renting you should put on the dress. Moreover, give comfort preference over design. Of course, design matters. But it must not be sacrificing the comfort.
Get a Haircut
Get the Haircut 3 to 4 weeks before the wedding date. It will help the makeup artists to give the hair the right shape on the wedding day. Therefore, go to a premium salon to cut your hair. Adopt the hairstyle that suits you the best. It is better to avoid any new look on the wedding day unless you are comfortable with the change.
During pre wedding shooting and all the interactions you had with your photographer earlier,
by the time he will shoot your wedding, he understands you completely and will provide you
gorgeous looking images from pre wedding functions & your wedding day.
