As mentioned earlier, pre-wedding is very much similar to the engagement session except, you will be wearing your wedding gown and wedding tuxedo during the photoshoot and these pictures are more fine art and elegant, you can also take these pictures anywhere you want, not just in Montreal but anywhere in the world (E.g., Iceland, Italy, Paris, Santorini, New York, Prague and so much more beautiful places!!). These sessions can last anywhere from a three hours photo shoot to a multi-day marathon involving rented cars and airplanes, wardrobe changes, prop weapons, and stunning make up! They truly are an experience. Think about pre-wedding photoshoot as doing your first look on another day before your actual wedding day. The pre-wedding session is definitely something bigger, something bolder, something mind-blowingly fun! Sure, you might think we can always do a day after or trash the dress session but the mindset is different, whether we want to admit it or not, once the wedding is over,

The wedding excitement slowly tapers off. Just ask yourself, would you want the standard “engagement session/everyday session” photo instead of some mind-blowing fine art pre-wedding photos?

All that being said, not only you will get the common engagement session benefits but also these pre-wedding photoshoot benefits:

  1. It gives you a sneak preview on how you may look like on the actual wedding day in your gorgeous gown and wedding tuxedo.

  2. It is a way to relieve your wedding planning ‘stress’. Save more time on your Wedding day and less stressful. Taking pictures in a carefree and relaxed atmosphere will definitely translate to some awesome pictures of the two of you.

  3. The possibility of taking picture with your stunning wedding gown at a location of your choice, it can be somewhere meaningful in Montreal or anywhere in the world that you can possible think of!

  4. More creative and mind blowing fine art pictures in your wedding gowns and suit.
