Tips for your wedding shooting
A magnolia blossom inspiration
This beautiful magnolia shooting inspired us to create these tips for your wedding shooting. The very talented and lovely Koko Photography captured the magnolia blossom perfectly with two different outfits from Kloster Bridal Concept Store.
How often do you see photos with magnolia, almond or cherry blossoms? Or enchanting bouquets with peonies, a shoot in a lavender field? But what to do if on the wedding date these flowers are not blooming or the lavender field is not nearby?
We recommend a “pre- or after-shooting”. These shootings are done before or after the wedding. This allows you to plan the shoot at your leisure, at the location and time of year of your choice. On the wedding day, there is always the time pressure in the couple shoot that you as a couple do not want to stay away from the guests for so long. Of course, these photos are very important and you should not delete them in any case! This day has very special emotions that will never come back the same. All the loved ones may not come together again in this constellation.
Nevertheless, you can additionally book a second shooting, for even more special wedding photos. Another advantage, besides the lack of time pressure, is also the flexible time of day. On the wedding day, there are usually small time slots for the couple shoot. For a pre- or after-shoot, you can arrange with the photographer at the time of day with the best light conditions, this is usually in the later afternoon until sunset.
However, keep in mind that the wedding dress usually gets dirty during the shooting and needs to be cleaned before the wedding day. It can also shrink a bit during the cleaning process. It should therefore not be shot too close to the wedding day or for safety with another dress.
We hope you enjoy this magical inspiration!
