Today we would like to show you the result of our bridal couple shooting at Phillipsruh Castle. The topic of bridal couple shoots is always a topic of conversation at weddings and is an important part of the wedding day for the bride and groom. After all, the look in the wedding dress and wedding suit is particularly unique on this day! There are a few possibilities for the implementation of bridal couple shoots:
Some couples want a first small bridal couple shoot directly after their Getting Ready in the form of a so-called "First Look Shoot". First Look means, as the term suggests, that the bride and groom see each other for the first time on their big day in their wedding dress/suit. This does not necessarily have to be at the altar. Depending on the planning and ideas of the bride and groom, a location and a time is often chosen when the bride and groom are still without guests. At the same time, the surroundings should of course be suitable for taking some great photos. From our experience we can only say: These pictures are simply incredibly emotional and a precious memory. It is very worthwhile to plan half an hour or an hour after the First Look. This way, you already have a small bridal couple shoot in the can before the wedding ceremony.
Another option is to schedule the bridal couple shoot after the ceremony and champagne reception. Again, we recommend a good hour for this. The time in the late afternoon or early evening is best suited because the sun is already a bit lower in summer. This creates a beautiful soft and above all warm light in good weather.
For couples who would prefer to spend the whole day only with their guests, after-wedding shoots are also suitable. Here, the bride and groom and the photographer come together on a separate date to take another two hours for the bridal shoot in peace and quiet. This also has advantages, because you can arrange the time specifically. This allows you to perfectly time the sunset, for example, in order to take advantage of the best light. In addition, the bride and groom have the opportunity to give the wedding outfit a second life and thus enjoy the wedding feeling one more time.
