A pre-wedding photoshoot, also known as an engagement shoot, is a photoshoot of the engaged couple that usually takes place a few months before the wedding. A pre-wedding shoot allows the bride-to-be and groom-to-be an opportunity to have romantic photos celebrating their love taken by a professional. This will also allow them to get to experience their photographer’s shooting style. The photographs produced will be used to decorate the venue on the couple’s wedding day itself.


Are you looking for unique, Instagram-worthy ideas for your pre-wedding photoshoot in Singapore? At Reelwerks, we provide affordable wedding photography and videography services at various price points. Read on to discover five unique pre-wedding photoshoot ideas perfect for couples in Singapore.


1. Celebrate Your Heritage


Wear cultural attire and choose to have your pre-wedding shoot at a location that reminds you of your heritage and roots. From the different cultural museums dotted around the island to the historical districts of Chinatown, Kampong Glam and Little India, there is no lack of nostalgic places in Singapore to serve as backdrops. The couple can choose to recreate their parents’ or grandparents’ wedding photographs to honour their family ties.


2. Include Your Furry Friends


Increase the cute factor of your photographs by including your fur babies. Couples hoping to pose with their pets for their pre-wedding shoot might find it most convenient to opt for either an indoor studio shoot or a nature-themed photoshoot. Shooting in an indoor space will minimise potential distractions for your pets. On the other hand, a nature-themed shoot outdoors in a grassy field or another similarly picturesque natural environment will allow your best pals to run freely alongside you and your sweetheart.


3. Candid Charm


Candid pre-wedding shoots are all the rage. Such photos possess an air of effortless charm and are meant to reflect just how easy it is to love the person you’ll soon call your spouse. Consider the outfit, styling, props and location that you choose. You’ll want to look put together but not overly done up. Our photographers are here to help capture that je ne se quoi unique only to the chemistry between the both of you.


4. High Fashion Glam


If you’ve ever wanted to pose for editorial-like photos fit for a magazine spread, there’s no better time to do so than during your pre-wedding photoshoot. Now’s your opportunity to dress to the nines in an evening gown or tuxedo as you channel your inner royalty. Celebrate that true love makes dreams come true with glamorous photos captured by a professional eye. A good photographer will be there to guide you on the different poses that might produce the most charismatic results, but it doesn’t hurt to practice a little on your own beforehand to get familiar with your best angles.


5. Embrace the Night Lights


Singapore arguably has one of the most stunning cityscapes in the world. Sleek and modern by day, the skyline truly comes to life when the sun sets and the night lights come out to play. Consider heading to Marina Bay Sands to capture the MBS light and water show for an eclectic night photoshoot featuring vibrant colours. Other locations gorgeously illuminated by night include the Gardens by the Bay and the Helix Bridge. You can also opt to use props like sparklers and fairy lights to decorate your preferred night backdrop.
