Hi guys,

I have a doubt, In my country, brides usually do a Pre-Wedding Session which is donde several weeks before the wedding and the bride uses a 2nd wedding dress.
Is this normal in the states? I know that most of the couples in the US do an Engagement session several months before the wedding and use those photographs as the Save The Dates and what else.

Anyways, Here are two shots from the last Pre-Wedding Session of 2014.

1.

#1 is a nice shot. I don't think him being on his toes helps the shot or moment. It's a good pose and a good comp. Some suggestions:

- His right arm around her waist
- His left hand on her waist
- Eyes open
- Kissing
- Flowers behind him on ground while kissing
- etc

There's probably 10 more shots in there from the same pose.

And you need some filler light.

Annnnd, then you could try some of the adjustments like the reply above mentioned.

A pre-wedding is not common (not that I know of). May be a good idea though, might be a reality jolt to some folks who "think" they are ready to get married….just sayin!


I'm a Pro because I once did a 1099 and a W-9

Good suggestions by Roodig.

Hands in his pockets isn't best. You may need to be the 'director' on these shots and coach them to good poses.

Not sure if I like any. BW conversion is not very good and groom having his hand in his pocket a negative as well. Always tell them to put their hands around each other
