14 Sep 2018INSPIRATIONBY SweetEscape

Dubbed as one of the most romantic places on earth, including the repeated reputation as the best destination in the world, Bali is definitely has all the winning factors for any couple on vacation. The Island of God is not just welcoming with its paradisiacal beach and sweeping ocean views, but is ready to wow with its culinary, culture, people and more. It's really no wonder that Bali is one of the most popular destinations even for #SweetEscapePrewedding.

Our Bali-based SweetEscape photographers share some insights on what to prepare for a #SweetEscapePrewedding in Bali. Check out the three things you need to know to make your #SweetEscapePrewedding in Bali a successful one:

Pick a Concept

A photo concept means the main theme of your pre-wedding photography. It could range from general ideas, such as casual, romantic, fun, bright and so on, to something that is specific, for example editorial glam, boho summer style, nautical only, etc.

At SweetEscape, we encourage our clients to think about a theme because it helps define what kind of mood to highlight. Some couples love the fun silly concept, while others prefer to go with formal tone or deep romance. We welcome all concepts as preferred by our clients, and in fact really encourage you to pick the best one that suits both of you as the couple.

Once you have decided on a concept, tell us all about it, including your inspiration, expectation, worry and all other details. It’ll also be helpful to show us some photo reference to pinpoint the exact idea of your concept. No information is ever too much, so spill it on us! Simply think of us as a friend, good listener and expert all rolled into one. Very often, such brainstorm sessions with clients result in better preparation, more ideas and suggestions too.

Timing is Everything

To get the best pre-wedding photo results, the shooting time is essential as it is the key factor to the best lighting for photoshoot and other details, such as location, weather and your personal schedule. This doesn’t mean that you only get to pick a morning or afternoon session, because SweetEscape have some of the best portfolio in Bali for all hours, from sunrise to sunset too!

Simply tell us what time works best for you, so that our team can arrange and assign the right photographer for you. Based on your timing preference, we’ll suggest the details to you to optimize your session, such as suggesting the best spot, and put you at ease during the whole time.

Coordinate Your Outfits

One of our top recommendations for a couple on pre-wedding photoshoot is outfit coordination.

Believe it or not, what you’re wearing is just as important as the other details we mentioned above (lighting and locations). Poorly planned outfits can really take away from an otherwise really great results. While a well-planned one can flatter the couple and really bring out the best in you.

The best outfit coordination is about complementing each other, without having to match your outfits to the same exact colors or styles. So pick a color theme or stick to the concept that you have picked prior. Most importantly, it should be something that is comfortable for you, because comfort means confidence and that is the perfect recipe for photography success.
