How to plan your Pre-wedding Photoshoot

Your love story theme

Do you have a particular theme you’re after? Oriental vintage themed photoshoot, pop colors, what about a casual day-at-home theme? The theme you want will influence your outfit and probably the location you choose! Don’t be afraid to let your personality shine.

Props for photoshoot

A flower bouquet is a must! Flowers makes a big difference. Especially when the bride is dressed in white and the groom in blue/black, that little yellow or pink or red adds a tint of sweetness to your photos.
Alternatively, you could bring your picnic basket with colorful fruits, sandwich, wine and picnic mat, and do a picnic shoot in the park.
Here are some other small little ideas for props: LOVE alphabets, chalkboards, Mr. & Mrs. chairs.

Why You Should Use a Real Estate Photographer

A picture says a thousand words, right? According to Realtor.org, 92% of homebuyers use the internet for their new home search. They browse listings when and where it’s convenient for them, using laptops, tablets, and phones. This means you need to capture their interest immediately because they will not linger on a photo longer than 20 seconds before they move on to the next listing. If the image that you’re presenting as the main image of your property is not professional, appealing, and intriguing, they will move on.

Your listing photographs create the first impression that a potential home buyer is likely to form of a property for sale. We know that most home buyers start their searches online before ever going to look at a property in person. It’s important that you have a captivating and professional image as the first thing your potential buyers see.

With many realtors having access to smartphones with cameras or even their own camera and lenses, it’s easy to try to shortcut the professional photographer piece and attempt to take your own photographs. Especially with the trend to post everything on social media. However, today’s consumers are also savvy enough that they can quickly spot an image taken by an amateur versus a professional. You don’t want a potential homebuyers first impression of the listing to be anything less than perfect.

There are many reasons that you should hire a professional real estate photographer for your listing.
