It is the perfect opportunity to spend time with each other, get to know the photographer and have some fun before the seriousness of the wedding day sets in.

Don’t rush into things. It’s for your wedding, so no compromises there. Do a thorough research and little comparison here and there before deciding the photographer. Have a look at their portfolios and you’ll get a better understanding of their style and quality. After all, you don’t want to live with awkward, dull images all your life. Do you?

Why so much furor over a photographer, you ask? Just imagine your wedding photographs turning out to be an utter disaster, with some relatives looking elsewhere, the pictures turning out boring or your eyes looking red like you’ve just come out of a scene from the Twilight movie. Hence, it’s important for him/her to get to know you, understand your personality and design a pre-wedding photoshoot keeping in mind your schedule and comfort.
Opportunity for all the ‘camera shy’ ones out there

You simply cannot dodge the camera on your wedding day, can you? Hence, pre-wedding photography releases all that stress. It helps you relax and your photographer can prep you up for the big day. A pre-wedding shoot helps you with two things—get comfortable in front of the camera and boost your confidence.
Brings out your personality

A hopeless romantic at heart? Complete chatterbox? An introvert who loves his/her space? All these qualities are reflected in the photographs you click. The type of theme or setting you choose brings out the true personality of a person. Hence, pre-wedding shoots showcase the ‘real’ you.
Narrate a story

If you have a Cinderella-like fairytale that you want the world to know about, then there’s no better way to say it than a pre-wedding photoshoot. You can speak about what you both love about each other through show cards and weave a story around it.
