Quality Photography Experience That Is Different.

What is a pre-wedding photoshoot?

Popular in the Chinese culture and around Asia, we are happy to introduce a Vancouver pre-wedding photography package. A Pre-Wedding photoshoot is a photo session that takes place before the wedding day with just the couple. It is a session where the couple gets to spend some quality time with their photographer and to get acquainted with each other. The pre-wedding shoot is a great way for the bride and groom to feel more comfortable in front of the camera on their big day and go to some amazing locations around and outside Vancouver.

We first heard about Pre-wedding photoshoots from an amazing client that travelled to Vancouver from Hong Kong. They gave us the details about the popular photoshoot in Asia. They wanted to showcase the epic British Columbia landscape and bring it back home to show all of their friends and family their adventures.

When it comes to pre-wedding photography, couples should keep in mind the nature of the session. The typical pre-wedding session is often more formal in nature, with the couple photographed in their wedding day attire.

The pre-wedding photoshoot is usually done in a setting that you would normally not be able to get to during a full wedding day. This will help create natural-looking photos that are romantic, relaxed, intimate and beautiful.

Why not turn your photo session into an adventure? Create memories and moments that will last you a lifetime. The pre-wedding session is the perfect opportunity to explore and have an amazing experience.

What is the Best Time of Year to Take Wedding Photos in and Around Vancouver?

The best time of year to take wedding photos in Vancouver is during the Spring. The best season for outdoor photography is during the months of April, May and June.

There are a few reasons why this time of year is perfect for wedding photography. First, the weather is generally fair and warm. Second, there are so many beautiful views from mountains to waterfalls that you can capture as a backdrop. Third, the leaves on trees will be at their most colourful and vibrant during this time of year, and you can even capture the Lower Mainland’s amazing cherry blossom season.

Winter is also an amazing time for pre-wedding photography. Low clouds and fresh snow-capped mountains are the perfect backdrops.
