Have you ever seen a couple in the city, possibly during the week, dressed up in wedding attire having photos taken in different locations? Maybe they have some assistants holding lighting and there could even be a makeup artist with them, brush in hand. Chances are, this could be a Pre Wedding Photoshoot! Andy loves prewedding photoshoots and we thought we would share a little more about what prewedding really means, how it works and why our couples choose to reveal the dress before the big day!
What is a Prewedding Photoshoot? A prewedding photoshoot is a MUST have for our beautiful couples from the Asian countries and it is also a growing trend for western couples too. In essence, it’s a full day engagement shoot but with multiple wedding dresses and photo locations.
Why would you want to see your bride in her dress before the wedding? Isn’t that considered taboo? For most Asian couples their wedding days are packed with so many traditions, families and ceremonies that they simply do not have the time to do a proper location photoshoot on the wedding day. Therefore, instead of wearing casual clothes and having a cute engagement photo session for an hour or so, Asian couples like to wear their wedding attire and do a full day photo shoot in locations they love.
Speaking of locations, It’s now becoming popular for couples to have their honeymoon before the wedding so they can have their prewedding photoshoot at their honeymoon destination. This means they maximise their beautiful holiday, and can also display these photos at the wedding! As Andy would say “One Stone Two Birds.” We love it.
Early this year, Andy traveled to Queenstown, New Zealand to capture our beautiful couple Yoyo and Kenny’s prewedding photographs and was blown away by the scenery. “Queenstown is definitely one of our all-time favourite locations. It just has so much to offer, throughout the whole year. Pick anytime to go, you will not be disappointed!” The highlight of their photoshoot? Landing their private helicopter on a Glacier. As you can expect the view was simply spectacular, and if that wasn’t enough Andy and the couple were blessed with mild weather (it can get a little chilly on a glacier, as you can expect!). Andy had the best afternoon with couple that day and the photos to prove it all.
