Pre-wedding shoot or more hours on the day?

I think that getting photos out of the way prior to the ceremony, and adding additional time day-of, so you can enjoy your cocktail/reception and not rush through photos while other people are socializing is the way to go. I don’t know if you and your partner/future spouse are interested in keeping things traditional and not seeing each other prior to the ceremony, but “first look” photos are a really cute moment that are lovely to catch on film. i think it gets rid of some of the jitters, too, so you can just relax and be present throughout your wedding.

Day of. What do you need a pre wedding shoot for? What do you do doing those?

I think it depends on your wedding day timeline. If the extra 2 hours will cover more events/different parts of the day I would do that. If you don’t really need those hours though I would strongly consider an engagement shoot before the wedding. You guys get used to being in front of the camera, you all get to know each other etc. I really enjoyed ours and I didn’t expect to. Now I’m really looking forward to the wedding and I know we already have a good relationship with our photographer and that she takes great pictures of us!
