Photography should be an art form limited only by your imagination. Be inspired by skilled innovations from famed photographers such as Mario Testino. He picked up a camera for the first time at 24 of age and shot to fame as one of the most celebrated photographers in the fashion industry. Testino has captured many of the world’s best known people, shot for magazine covers, such as Vogue and Vanity Fair and was noted for taking some iconic snaps of the late Princess Diana.

Wedding is the time when two people celebrate their love history (and herstory) together. You create the perfect memento by capturing photos with your selected attire, proper make-over, shooting location and style. With the advancement of technology you can have your treasured memories stored digitally creatively, in photo albums or other forms of print.

In group photo, have some assortment in positioning; some standing, hugging each other, seated or squatting in different angle, instead of lining the people up like a class photo.

I've always loved this Burberry romantic fragrance ad shot back in Oct 2005. It was able to portray the elegance of life's simple joy. From getting angry with your bf for being late to a simple walk down a quiet street, you just have to be imaginative. Add a few details and voila! you have your pre-wedding collection.
