Shooting Guidelines for Pre-wedding Shoots :-
1. Punctuality is an important factor :
Reaching on time is essential as the shoot is fixed according to the time periods of the day. The photographer has fixed a time for the shoot according to many factors which contribute in building up the mood and ambience of the shoot. A pre-wedding shoot generally continues up to 8 to 10 hours, and needs to be wrapped up at a suitable time as well. For instance, if the time appointed for your shoot is 7 a.m. in the morning, it will end at around 3 to 5 o’clock in the evening.
Another reason is that the photographer fixes the time according to the conditions of the sky. In the morning, before 8 a.m. the sky is a blend of orange and blue and the light is soft, if your appointed time is 7 a.m. and you are arriving late, your photographs will lose the cinematic appeal as the natural effects will not be incorporated in your photographs.
2. Don’t waste a lot of time on make-up :
Everyone wants to look stunning in their pre-wedding videos and photographs. Make-up is an inevitable aspect, and it is advised that your first make-up look should be done from home itself as a lot of time is wasted on the shoot location and the entire shoot process is delayed. It is appropriate if you come all ready in your clothes in case you are shooting in a public location as there might be difficulty in finding changing rooms.
3. Keep light snacks with you :
As mentioned earlier, a pre-wedding shoot might continue up to 10 hours and there is a necessity of keeping light and quick snacks with you as you might feel peckish. You will not be given more than 20 minutes off for eating. Due to time limitation and long duration of the shoot, keeping light and healthy food with you is a must.
4. Location expenses have to be borne by the client :
Irrespective of whether the location is open for public or not, if there are any charges levied by the location authorities, it has to borne by the client itself. Video Tailor is not responsible for any extra charges.
5. Chemistry of the couple :
Camera consciousness is not uncommon among people and there are some couples who are shy in front of the camera, especially in certain instances for the final video clip. In this case, there should be a good chemistry between you and your partner for the smooth running of the shoot. The videographer might ask you to do certain enactments with your partner; interpersonal chemistry plays an important role in this case as reticent behaviour is a major hindrance and causes delay.
6. Things to keep :
- Dupatta flairs
- 5-6 dresses as options
- Make-up (in case you are not getting your personal make-up artist).
