If you’re going for timeless elegance with a hint of innocence in your pre-wedding pictures, then using flowers is a great way to achieve that. From holding a bouquet of pristine white flowers to having them rain down on you from above, flowers can be used in many different ways as props to add dimension and emotion in a pre-wedding shoot.
If you and your partner share a few things in common, you should use them as props in your pre-wedding shoot. Whether it’s a love for vinyl records, a vintage aesthetic or snazzy cars, let these items be a part of the picture you create.
Quirky things can be great props to add an element of intrigue to your picture. But make sure that they have some connection with your love story too, and aren’t just there for the sake of it. For instance, if you have a great inside joke about travelling to see each other, you can incorporate it in your pre-wedding shoot, like this auto!
Do you and your spouse share a love for books? Did you meet in college and help each other study for finals? Was your first date deep within the burrows of a cosy library? If your answer to any of these questions was a resounding yes, then why not use books as props in your pre-wedding shoot? If you’re a die-hard Potter head, you’ve probably fantasised about a magical wedding at some point in your life.
Umbrellas are great props to use as they not only add a splash of colour but can convey many different emotions. A sense of secrecy, tons of intimacy, and even fantasy can all be a part of your pictures with an artfully placed umbrella. The best part is that they’re easy to find and easy to manage.
If you are planning to have a night shoot, or want a photographer to be present on the day you propose, then candles can be a great prop. They can be used to add light to the picture and also to create a romantic vibe. From sparkling ones that never go off to tiny tea-light candles, you can source a huge variety of them to create different ambiences.
