Calling all June Bride and Bride-to-be-SOON!
Not so long ago, hearing the word “Prenup” meant an agreement made between a man and a woman before marrying. Prenuptial agreement was to give up future rights to each other’s property in the event of divorce or death (according to Webster dictionary). Now a days, when the word “Prenup” pops up, all you see is a lovey dovey couple kissing under the stars as a photographer captures the moment with his DSLR camera.
Engagement shoot, more popularly known as Prenup photo shoot, is a trend among couples in the 21st century. It’s not that planning for a wedding is not tedious enough, but prenup photo shoots has become a part of a couples journey, a great reminder of where you were as an engaged couple and where you are heading as a married couple.
Before saying I do and waking up beside the man-worth-the-wait, why not savor the moment of being the “fiancé”? Or if you’re single, I believe it’s time for you to know what you want in your future Prenup photo shoot. Here are some key elements you might want to consider in your pre-wedding photo shoot;
A beautiful scenery sets the mood of the shoot. Whether you choose to be at the top of Mt. Apo or at the picnic grounds of Rizal Park, it’s perfectly fine as long as it speaks a lot about what you love to be or to do as couple. Also, why not use this opportunity to go places with your best travel buddy?
Props enhance what is already beautiful in the first places, so go simple and meaningful. There are a variety of movable objects to choose from. You might also want to re-use your chosen materials on your actual wedding day, so choose wisely to save a lot of energy and money.
You and your fiancé is the subject of the prenup photo shoot so expect a lot of unguarded facial expressions being captured by the photographer’s lense. Engagement shoots should be spontaneous and fun so it helps to have a natural make up that will bring out that glow in you and your partner.
A good styling should make you feel more relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. It is important to consider the color and texture of your clothes, making sure you can interact freely with your fiance as the moments are being captured. You don’t want to look stiff and disconnected on screen right?
Choose a photographer that will not only make you look good but will also make you feel good. Hire someone you know can help you be natural in front of the camera as a couple and translate it effectively in his photos. Now a days, there are a lot of amateur photographers that are really talented and creative, you just need to find what fits you and your partner’s personality.
More than these elements, without love and joy between you and your future husband, any Engagement shoot will be meaningless. These captured moments should remind you how wonderful it is to love and be loved. So as the prenup photo shoot flows, don’t be rigid. Yet, be spontaneous in expressing your love for being your man’s forever.
