Tips for Adding Your Personal Story to Your Wedding Photos

Couples have their own unique stories to tell. What better way to express these stories than to have them captured on camera? Every couple has their own story on how they met, how they become partners, and how they ended up getting engaged. Usually, a pre-wedding photoshoot is all about relaying your story to the guests while incorporating creative and artistic ideas to make each shot worthwhile.

Apart from the actual wedding day photography, a pre-wedding photoshoot is an important aspect in preparation for your big day. Each shot of your pre-wedding photos should incorporate elements of how you met your partner and your journey towards your big day. Here’s how you can do that:

Showcase How the Two of You Met
As mentioned above, every couple has their own unique “how we met” stories to tell. Some accidentally met online, while some have known each other for a long time but only realized their feelings for each other much later. No matter how the two of you met, it is a great idea to showcase this story during your pre-wedding photoshoot and on the day of the wedding itself. With the help of your Chris Ling International Photographer, you can come up with a creative way to tell such stories in your wedding album for your guests to view and for you to keep.

Use Props that Reflect How You Met
Did the two of you meet in school? At a random ball game? Regardless of how the two of you met, incorporating relevant props such as wearing your school uniform or jerseys of your favourite teams adds flair to the concept of the over-all shoot. Props can also make your experience more unique and personal. Adding of props to your photoshoot can instantly give your guests a glimpse of your story without having to guess anything.

Think of a Concept
Another way to keep your pre-wedding photos more unique is to have it conceptualized. Think about what you want to showcase – do you plan on telling about your history or do you want to include your plans for the future? Conceptualizing a photoshoot can be an additional work but it will definitely be worth it and be more meaningful. Think about creative props and artistic designs that can help you convey your story to make everything more interesting and concise.

Put it in a Book
If it is within your budget, create a small story book that contains your pre-wedding photos accompanied by captions that can guide your guests or album viewer on the flow of your love story. A picture book can also serve as a souvenir not only for your guests, but for you and your future husband or wife as well. It is also a great memory to be displayed in your house and to be browsed from time to time.
