Pre-wedding shoots (in my opinion!) are great! We get to:
- Know each other
- Have fun together in the lead up to your wedding
- Enable you to both feel comfortable in front of the camera
- Test out any ideas you may have for your wedding portraits
- Walk away feeling pumped for your wedding day
- Receive a beautiful collection of images within a couple of weeks!
Where can we meet for the shoot? That part is up to you! Do you want to shoot where you are having your wedding, to get familiar with where you'd like to have photos on your wedding day?
Would you like to go to a beach or walking track that is significant to you both? An in-home session? Alternatively, If you need help deciding on a location, get in touch! Locations within 30kms of Melbourne CBD are included in the shoot. For distances longer than this, I will require a small travel fee, or if it suits us both, I'm more than happy to get a ride with you!
How long will the shoot take? Approx. 30-45mins
When should we schedule our pre-wedding shoot? Where possible, I like to shoot within the hour leading to sunset, referred to as golden hour. In advance, I'm available most weeknights and some weekends. If you are wanting to use these images for your save the dates or wedding website, we can work around that.
What should we wear? Something you are both comfortable and feel GREAT in! You want to make the most out of having these photos taken. Some people like to use this time as an opportunity for a makeup trial with their make up artist - good idea! I'd co-oridnate your outfits so that they don't fully match, but compliment each other. Tips: wear similar colours, if one is wearing a pattern or print, the other steers clear of that. Ensure your outfit suits the location you've chosen as well. Would you wear heels or boots to the beach?
When will we receive our images? Within 2 weeks after our time together, I will email you through a link to download your collection of images in both print-ready and web-ready file sizes!
