How to use Props at your Pre-wedding Photoshoot

Nikita and Ankit met five years ago, at work, in Dubai. Nikita has since moved to Mumbai though she will move back to Dubai after their wedding.

Ankit planned the perfect proposal on a trip to Singapore in December 2015. He booked an entire section of the restaurant Una for just his lady love and himself, ordered her favorite drinks and pulled out a ring and popped the question. The couple will tie the knot in December this year, celebrating with a big, fat Punjabi wedding.

For their pre-wedding shoot, Deepanshi of Happyframes suggested the peaceful beaches of Vasai as a location. The couple reached early that morning to catch the sunrise and get some dawn-kissed shots but the sky was overcast. They managed to make the most out of that wet weekend though – letting the heavy sky, lush green foliage, high tides and wide expanses make for a dramatic backdrop.

Deepanshi of Happyframes recommends using props in pre-wedding shoots. Not only do they add pops of colour and visual interest, they can also break the ice with camera-conscious couples and provide an element of unselfconscious fun.

For this shoot, the misty backdrop of the woods was perfectly contrasted by the umbrella. The picnic basket, customized by her own team with bottles from Rhythm Winery, added an intimacy to the photograph of the couple on vintage chairs, their feet lapped by the tide.

The hand-painted yellow frame was quirky and cute and a spot of brightness on a rainy day. Throw in a dainty lace umbrella and suddenly, the pictures were youthful, romantic and fun. Happyframes added a touch of whimsy as they captured the couple twirling in the whirls of a handheld smoke bomb.

Deepanshi suggests keeping a few things in mind when using props, “Relevance is most important! Envision the theme or storyline of the shoot and select props that are fun and classy and things that couples would be happy to use!”
