Unless you’re a celebrity or a model, posing in front of a camera is no simple task. It’s normal to feel camera-shy and the first few minutes will be a little comfortable but once you warm up to your photographer everything will go smoothly. If you’re feeling nervous about your upcoming shoot, don’t panic. Here are some tips that will help you prepare for the best prenup shoot ever.

Find the perfect photographer

It is essential for every couple to find a photographer that matches their personality. You want to find someone you mesh with and trust to be with you on one of the most important moments of your life. Look through their portfolios, ask questions, and then get ahold of them.

Choose your outfits wisely

When it comes to finding the right outfit for your shoot, you’ve got Pinterest to rely on. Find colours that complement your skin tone and avoid any trendy pieces as much as possible. Look to these beauties for inspo – Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly.

Mention any concerns to your photographer in advance

As much as possible, be open with your photographer. Tell him/her the things that bother you especially when having a photo taken. Be specific. Have a certain angle? Don’t be afraid to tell ‘em! Photographers have tips and tricks that focus on the features that you want to emphasise more.

Finalise your location

By doing so, the photographer will be able to scout locations in the venue that you and your partner can shoot at. It can be at a place that means a lot to you and your significant other or as simple as a studio. Do note that for outdoor locations it can sometimes be a pain in the butt since lighting will play a huge factor in the outcome of the photos.

Practice makes perfect

Three words: practice, practice, practice! It’s super helpful to try out different poses before the shoot. Try standing in front of a mirror and try poses you feel most comfortable and confident doing. And if you still need more inspiration take some notes from your favourite celebrity couples.

Make use of props!

Props do the trick! A lot of people pose awkwardly since they have no idea what to do with their hands. Determine what type of theme you and your partner want for your shoot so you and your wedding planner/shoot coordinator can prepare the props you will be using.

Trust the experts

When it comes to special occasion photography, trust only the experts. Yes, you have your own ideas but when it comes to doing poses and the layout of the photo, let your photographer do his/her thing.
