Unless you posses some sort of celebrity status, there are very few times in your life where you hire a photographer to take pictures of you. There is no doubt you'll love your wedding pictures but it's nice to have some great not-so-formal photographs of the two of you in a pretty location such as a nice park.
Scheduling time to capture special moments between you and your fiance is great for three reasons:
- Fabulous pictures for your home, holiday card, parents and grandparents
- You'll have a great photo for the engagement or wedding announcement in your local paper
- These pictures will come in handy should you have a slideshow at the reception
- Both of you will become more comfortable with your photographer and in front of the camera
Mention to your photographer a pre-wedding photo session is something you may be interested in. If you're still meeting with photographers, ask them if they’ll include a portrait, or portrait session in the package you buy. Many photographers include such a photo session in certain packages or at the very least will give you a significant discount since you booked them for the wedding, sangeet, mehndi etc.
