Pre-wedding photo shoots are becoming increasingly popular – often like a ‘practice run through’ for the big day! Taking a break away from the wedding planning and decision making, if only for a morning or afternoon, we often find these photos will be the ones you treasure the most! Here are our Top Ten reasons why you should have a ‘playdate’ photography session before your wedding:

1. Get used to being photographed by a professional.

2. Capture this amazing time in your lives as a couple.

3. Get used to working with your wedding photographer and understand what works best with their direction (lighting, posing, background choices).

4. Have a hair and makeup trial for your wedding and see how it photographs.

5. Use a location that is special to you, maybe where the proposal was, or at your favourite cafe or park or beach.
