What does Pre-shoot in Istanbul mean

  • Considering the photography project will be postponed to a day other than the date of the main ceremony, it will provide more freedom and comfort for couples and also for our photography team which causes more psychological security for both sides.

These are some advantages of “Pre-shoot”.

Moreover, using the maximum capability and creativity of the photography team, time and energy saving, using surrounding facilities as well as photography equipment and accessories optimally, having more shots in different locations, using a variety of day light conditions and hunting “golden hours of photography” are another advantages of “Pre-shoot”.

Why photography in Turkey?

For the reason of natural and historical attractions of Turkey, as well as the fun aspects of the photograph, in addition,n some other reasons, lots of couples, are motivated to choose this country as the best location for their wedding ceremony.

Where to go for formality photography in Turkey?

As mentioned Turkey have special natural and historical attractions in different places, such as the beautiful cities like Cappadocia, Antalya, Istanbul and the pretty islands of Prince which are the best location for photography.

 Considering that Istanbul has a wide range of natural, historical and tourist attractions and also reasonable costs, and thousands international flights from all around the world to Istanbul, it can be the best choice for couples for doing their Pre-shoot photography project in their wedding ceremonies

The best time for Pre-shoot in Istanbul

  • In Istanbul, the best time for Pre-shoot is early morning and close to sunrise due to the use of the appropriate and beautiful sunrise light, the solitude of the locals before the presence of tourists and the cheerfulness of the couple and the photography team.
  • In Turkey, each season has its own specific beauty, so choosing the right month depends on the couple’s taste. Colorful spring, hot summer and beautiful beach, golden autumn and snowy winter, however if you want more comfort and freedom of action for photography and filming, the best time is spring and autumn.

What should we wear for Pre-shoot?

  • Choosing clothes depends on taste of couples in type and style of photos and clips. But considering the Pr-shoot project is a formal photography and in line with the wedding ceremony, usually the couples use the same clothes of their main wedding ceremony. However, sometimes they wear colorful and casual clothes.
  • Regarding the time and place restrictions on the day of the project, we suggest to wear 2 sets maximum in the day of photography and filming.
