During a couple's pre-wedding photoshoot, we at SG Wedding Guru always advise couples to do some shots in casual wear, informal poses and at personally meaningful places. While these will give some variety to the wedding album, having such photo ideas will also give the couples more options when it comes to selecting their wedding portraits.
SG Wedding Guru firmly believes that the wedding portrait need not have to be one of the bride in her wedding gown and the groom in his suit. What we think makes the "perfect" wedding portrait is one that captures the essence of the relationship and one that will stand the test of time.
This advise comes from the fact that a wedding portrait's attractiveness and relevance to the couple will fade with the passage of time, while one that is less about the event but more about the couple themselves will continue to remain relevant over the years. If you doubt what we are saying, just look for yourself at how many wedding portraits of couples in their wedding fineries remain hanging in the living rooms after a few years of marriage. On the other hand, a well taken and "classic" picture of the couple will continue to have pride of place in the home.
So when it comes to pre-wedding photoshoot ideas, Singapore brides should be as creative as they can. The more out-of-the-box and personally meaningful the better. Then when all that is done, the couple can then choose a wedding portrait that will have long term appeal.
