The topic of bridal couple shoots or bridal shoots is on everyone's lips around the wedding day and is an important part of the day, especially for the bride and groom. After all, the look in the bridal dress on this day is truly unique! In this case here, my bride Irina wanted to capture her Bridal Look all over again for herself in the form of an " After Wedding Shooting". Today we did a bridal shoot in the orchards, which fits perfectly with the autumnal atmosphere 🙂
Possibilities of a bridal couple shoot:
The traditional option is, of course, to schedule the bridal couple shoot after the wedding ceremony and champagne reception. 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 good bit lower, especially in summer. This creates a beautiful soft light in good weather.
Some couples combine the First Look directly after Getting Ready with a so-called "First Look Shooting". The special thing about this is that the bride and groom see each other in their wedding dress/suit for the first time on their big day. This does not necessarily have to be at the altar. Depending on the planning and preferences of the bride and groom, a place and time is often chosen here when the bride and groom are still alone. At the same time, of course, it should also 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 definitely worth planning half an hour after the First Look. Because here you can also do a small bridal couple shoot before the wedding ceremony.
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 two hours for the bridal couple shoot. This type of shooting has different advantages, for one thing, you are not dependent on the daily schedule on the wedding day. In addition - and this aspect really should not be underestimated - you can arrange the time completely flexibly. 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 a second time.
