Wedding Images before and after Wedding day
Do you sometimes wonder how Professional Photographers get so many awesome images of a bride and groom during a Wedding day? Well, the answer is typically in the fact that the Wedding Photographer is doing images before and after the day of the Wedding. Photographers like to call these sessions all sorts of things like bridal portrait, trash the dress, fash the dress, Pre-Wedding something, post-Wedding something…
You should consider doing a Photography Session before and/or after your Wedding day and here is why. Think about how rushed you are going to be during your Wedding day. Even if you plan hours of Wedding Photography things will typically happen and you will have less time than you thought. Planning a ton of images on your Wedding day puts everyone in a reserved mood. You want to make it easy for you, your family, and guests. This is a celebration, not a photo shoot!
There are many places that you can imagine around your Wedding location that are just rad. Why not take advantage of the areas before or after your Wedding day. Before your Wedding you need to be very careful of your dress but after the day you can be a bit more daring. You don’t have to “trash the dress” but how about “fash the dress” where you go out and just get some fabulous images in your Wedding Dress that you could never have taken the day of your Wedding. I have done lots of “Fash the Dress” sessions and some “Trash the Dress” sessions. The results are extraordinary!
My Wedding do not include many of these pre and post-Wedding sessions. I wish that every Wedding would have these because the images are fabulous! My brides and grooms typically will use these images in an album or make a separate album of these images. The sessions are fun, no stress, and you can really add your own personal style and touch. Most of the images that you see in magazines were not captured on the Wedding Day.
Trash the Dress, Fash the Dress, Pre/Post Session, Bridal Sessions
Whatever you call them just do it and you will be so happy when you look back at what you can achieve from a short fabulous session. You just may see your images gracing the cover of a bridal magazine in your area.
