More and more couples choose luxurious medieval Prague as fabulous decorations for their pre-wedding photoshoots. And let the queue of brides on especially popular dates to the most famous Prague sights is not a surprise, it does not prevent us from creating beauty.
What I like about pre-wedding photo shoots in Prague is the complete freedom of creativity. It’s incredibly nice when couples completely trust you as a photographer, and are ready for any of the most daring, and sometimes even slightly crazy, experiments. We are particularly pleased that we are not pressured by the time frame and other barriers that are here and there lying in wait at the wedding day, and we are free to do anything and whenever, and stay in a place exactly as much as we want. The wedding coordinator would not follow us, pointing to the clock and making menacing faces, the bride is not nervous about the fact that the hem of her dress is slightly dirty in the first five minutes, the guests behind her do not groan that they are hungry and “What the hell we need this photo shoot for” and many other different “NO” that add a spoon of tar in a honey barrel of the wedding photographer’s work.
So, whichever way you turn, you can see only advantages, and I very much like the tradition of Asian couples to arrange a photo session for themselves on a day apart from the wedding. And what about the opportunity to take pictures in dresses of different colors and styles! Millions of brides all over the world do not sleep at night and gnaw their nails into the blood in thought about what kind of dress they should stop at. But the Chinese brides have solved this problem by the fact that they take all the dresses they like, vary hair style and make-ups, and receive a huge number of various photos. To this must be added a lot of locations that can offer European cities, and the variety of photos will simply go off the scale.
How does pre-wedding photo shoot takes place in Prague?
The most popular package of pre-wedding photo shoots of mine is, perhaps, an eight-hour photo shoot with a break. For my future clients, I would like to briefly describe how things work.
Your day begins very early, one can say that even at night, when all tourists see the seventh dream, my stylists are already knocking at the door of your room. Recommendations on how to get prepared for make-up and hairstyle, you can read here. On average, the process of turning a sleepy girl into a princess takes 2.5 hours. Plus, it would be nice to add half an hour for breakfast and “prince” arrangement. You meet with the photographer at a pre-agreed point, from where the shooting immediately begins. Therefore, it is necessary to find out in advance how long and in which carriage the princess and the prince will get to the meeting point.
Then for 4-5 hours we walk around the morning city, flooded by gorgeous dawn beams, you enjoy each other’s company, constantly embrace, kiss and show your tender feelings in every possible way that I capture on the camera. Closer to noon, when your you have already run out of your strength and the stomach lets you know that he would not mind to throwing in a decent portion of food, we part with you for a while. Although quite often, for lunch we go all together, because who knows better than local resident where you can eat delicious food and do not drain your purse :-)
After that you return to your hotel and wait for the stylist. When fresh make-up is done, another hair style is completed, and you are dressed in new clothes, we again meet with you in another place and continue shooting. After the photo shooting we warmly say goodbye, we are glad that a tiring day is over and we go home.
And in a few days you get to your e-mail with a link to the first part of photos, so that you have something to show to your friends and family, and to satisfy your own curiosity :-)
