WHO ARE PRE-WEDDING PHOTOS FOR?
If you're reading this, then I am so excited you're interested in Pre-Wedding photos!
This session is typically taken after getting engaged. However, I don't believe this photoshoot should be restricted to just an engaged couple before their wedding. Feel free to book if you like my studio for the minimalistic and formal style.
WHERE IS THE SHOOT?
Our Pre-Wedding Photography sessions are taken in our studio in Surrey Hills, Melbourne, which is close to Camberwell, Box Hill, and Burwood. The studio space is set up with simple backgrounds to capture timeless images for you.
If you're looking for an outdoor photoshoot, please enquire about our Engagement sessions.
HOW LONG IS THE SESSION?
Our Pre-Wedding sessions are not time-based. This may be your first photoshoot before your big wedding day. We want you to be relaxed as possible and get comfortable being in front of a camera. I would suggest allocating half a day, as this will include hair and makeup, and time in between to change outfits.
WHAT CLOTHES DO I NEED TO PREPARE?
My studio wardrobe has a variety of white dresses and wedding dresses. If you book your Pre-Wedding photoshoot with us, I will organise your outfits with you in advance. I also encourage all my clients to bring any formal dresses you may have to increase the variety in your final images.
Currently, I do not supply men suits. Please bring any suit you already have, more than one would be great!
HAIR AND MAKE UP?
If you require hair and makeup, I hire a professional artist to come help you. This is an additional fee of $150 that goes directly towards their service.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE PHOTOSHOOT?
The week following your photoshoot, I will send you a sneak peek photo for you to send to family, or to share with friends on social media. If you do upload online, please tag me @themomentsbymelissa.
Your remaining images will be ready to download within three weeks. I edit each image individually through Lightroom and Photoshop to give you a flawless final product. You will receive a minimum of 15 images, but I will give as many as possible. Read more information about this in our Final Images FAQs.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?
Please book in advance, especially if you want to print anything to be displayed at your wedding. I personally love to see Pre-Wedding photos when I am waiting around eating canapés before the reception.
