Tips for your Pre Wedding Melbourne Photoshoot
I have spent years as a Melbourne engagement photographer and wedding specialist and can say the new trend of getting pre-wedding photos done is fantastic! I always want my clients to feel comfortable wherever we shoot, so I’ve put together a quick guide to your next pre-wedding or engagement photoshoot.
What to Wear on Your Melbourne Photoshoot
Whether you are going for a dressed-down look or a more formal attire. I always encourage my couples to feel confidant and sexy in what they choose to wear, like they are embracing the alter ego! I want you to look back on your photos and remember how good you looked.
If you would like some feedback about what outfits and colours will look best at different Melbourne destinations, please send me some of your ideas. I am always willing to chat about what you’re going to wear and how it reflects your location and style. Let me know if you’re planning on doing multiple looks. I also have an in-depth blog post on ideas for what you could wear during your engagement and pre-wedding photoshoot. Take a look

Your background should reflect the romance and personal touches of your story. Every couple has a unique love story to tell. Melbourne has many of the perfect little hideaways and sweeping sceneries to accentuate your photos. I’ve been honored to host photoshoots all around the dynamic beauty of Melbourne’s coastline, pristine beaches, thick forests, and historic buildings. I’m more than comfortable making suggestions for locations in rural, urban, and natural settings. My goal is to create the perfect backdrop to reflect your energy, romance, and story.
Why Have a Pre Wedding Photoshoot
“I hate having my photo taken.” I have heard this phrase so many times from couples. They feel uncomfortable being in front of a camera and never really relax into the mood of what they’re trying to capture. A pre-wedding photoshoot creates an opportunity to eliminate all those concerns the same way a run-through helps with your wedding day. Once you know how we will work together and what to expect, you can relax your boundaries a bit and allow yourself to embrace the beauty of the moment.
Your photos will represent the joy and excitement of your big day for years to come. You will want them to be beautiful photos that you can use for your wedding announcements, invitations, and save-the-dates. Some couples have utilized pre-wedding photos during feature slideshows at the reception.
Some other benefits of a pre-wedding photoshoot include:
- Getting acquainted with your photographer
- Relieve wedding photography stress
- Revisit romantic spots around Melbourne
- Using the pictures in your wedding
- Sexy imagery for your to flaunt on the gram and on your walls
- An excuse to test out your outfits, makeup and hair
