How to prepare for a wedding pre photo shoot


When you’re getting married, there are a lot of things to think about. One of those things is your pre photoshoot. This isn’t just for photos that will be used for the wedding album; it’s also for your engagement announcement and other marketing materials.

Here are 8 things you need to do for a wedding pre photoshoot:

1. Find a great photographer

Finding a great photographer is probably the most important thing you need to do here, and actually for your wedding as well. There are professional photographers that specialize in engagements and weddings. They also photograph headshots (business headshots) and all types of family portraits like maternity photos, baby photos, and more. A great photographer will showcase their experience with samples of work previously done.

2. Decide on the location

We generally recommend doing this photoshoot somewhere close to where you’ll be having your wedding, but if that’s not possible then just choose anywhere that will have good lighting for photos. If you want to go with something different or are looking for inspiration then check out our Pinterest account or look around online to get some ideas.

3. Plan your outfits

This is probably the most fun part of the photoshoot! You’ll want to choose outfits that are both stylish and representative of who you are as a couple. If one or both of you are particularly fashion-savvy then take that into account when planning your looks.

4. Coordinating accessories

You don’t have to match your outfits perfectly, but it’s a good idea to coordinate accessories so that everything looks like it belongs together. This could be anything from jewelry to ties and pocket squares for men.

5. Props

If you want to use props in your photos then start thinking about what you might want to use. This could be anything from flowers to a pet dog or cat. If you’re stuck for ideas then take a look at the Pinterest board again for some inspiration.

6. Practice your poses

You don’t want to look stiff and uncomfortable in your photos, so it’s a good idea to practice some poses beforehand. This doesn’t have to be anything too complicated, just something that will make you feel natural and confident when the time comes for the photoshoot.

7. Hair and makeup

This is especially important if you’re not planning on doing your own makeup on the day of the wedding. You’ll want to book a trial session with your makeup artist so that you can make sure everything looks perfect on the day of the photo shoot.

8. Think about album design

Once you’ve had your photoshoot, the next thing to think about is the design of your wedding album. This is something that your photographer can help with, and it’s a good idea to start thinking about it early on so that you have plenty of time to make decisions.


When you’re getting ready for your wedding day, there are so many decisions to make. What will the flowers look like? Who should be in attendance at the ceremony? How much time should we spend with our guests before and after the event? One decision that often gets overlooked is how to prepare for a wedding pre photo shoot.
