What else can we do during our photoshoot?

Heading to a café and grabbing some coffee for your photoshoot can be a great idea. Not only can it add an interesting element to your photos, but it can also provide a fun and relaxed atmosphere for your subjects. Cafés often have unique and visually appealing backgrounds and props that can add depth and texture to your photographs. Additionally, coffee can make for a great prop, as it can be used to create a cozy and intimate vibe. However, it's important to make sure that you have permission to shoot in the café and that you respect the privacy and comfort of other patrons. Remember to keep the focus on your subject and experiment with different angles and perspectives to make your photos stand out.

Here's a few more ideas on what you can do for your pre wedding photo shoot in the city

One idea is to choose a location that is meaningful to you and your partner. This could be a place where you had your first date, a favorite restaurant or park, or a location that holds special memories for you both. Choosing a meaningful location will add a personal touch to your photos and make them even more special.

Another idea is to incorporate the city's landmarks and iconic buildings into your photos. This could include posing in front of famous landmarks such as the London Eye, St Pauls Cathedral , or Big Ben. These iconic backdrops will add a unique and unforgettable touch to your photos.

If you're looking for a more relaxed and casual vibe, consider having your photos taken in a trendy neighbourhood or street. This could include posing in front of street art murals, colorful buildings, or trendy cafes and shops. These backdrops will add a fun and playful touch to your photos.
