So, you have decided to have a prenup session. Nowadays, it’s a popular part of any couple’s wedding preparations simply because it’s the best way to create and preserve good memories. Couples can now look back to that happy day after many years and show these fun images to their children. The pictures will always be the perfect conversation piece for any occasion.

Convinced about the prenup, you already scheduled a session with your photographer. However, you are clueless about what to do on that day.

But imagine the added stress on your daily duties due to the pressure of thinking of the creative requirements of a photo shoot, which are plenty but have no idea about.

For couples who have no time to spare, hiring a stylist is the key to a worry-free photo shoot.

Stylists are specialists in making your engagement memorable and fun. You can, therefore, concentrate on enjoying every minute of the experience. Let the stylist take care of the cumbersome details.

Getting married is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and wouldn’t it be nice if you make it unforgettable?

1.  If you have no idea about what to do, an engagement stylist will provide concepts for you.

Concepts and art direction are carefully planned based on the interests and personality of the couple.

2.  No need to think of what to wear or to bring on your prenup day.

Though you have tons of clothes but the question is, are they fashionable enough for the prenup? Stylists can bring different styles and kinds of clothes that include casual, formal, vintage, and trendy. They also provide clothes along with shoes and accessories to complete the look. They make sure to bring out what’s best for your body type so you can look your best in the photos.

 Why do you need to hire a Stylist?

3.  No need to shop for clothes.

Shopping may consume your time especially when you don’t know what to choose and buy. Let the stylist do it for you!

4.  If you choose to bring your own clothes, outfits can be coordinated in terms of style and color by the stylist.

Also, the couple’s clothes must be coordinated with the prenup location. If you have a stylist, you can brainstorm on many ideas. The stylish will suggest fresh and novel ideas.


5.  Stylists give assistance for each step in the whole prenup process.

Wedding requirements can be taxing and can be quite a chore in terms of choosing the concept, right outfits, location, itinerary, and makeup artist. Stylists suggest the best options. Stylists also make sure that everything is going well especially on the prenup day itself. If you do not have a coordinator with you on that day, stylists can act as the coordinator to help you with the logistics such as itinerary and food.

6.  Stylists remind you about important matters.

They can remind you about the simplest things such as not to use conditioner on your hair for the prenup day because it may loosen the curls of your hair, the art direction of the shoot, the right angle, and poses that are ideal for you.

7.  Having a production design makes your engagement session more unique than others.

There are several locations now that are good for the prenup. However, due to the demand of engagement sessions, locations are becoming overused. Stylists can provide set design or production design that may vary depending on your concept. They can turn a simple garden into an enchanted place or a bare studio into a glamorous place. They can make your favorite characters come alive. Production design can be very helpful in achieving the client’s concept. Props in the set design also help the couple to interact with each other and to elicit natural reactions for good photos. Stylists make sure that set designs are creative and unique in every way.

  • For a long time, this is quite popular in other countries. Finally it is starting to make a headway in the local scene. I am way past that stage but I can see how younger people have something to look forward to. A professional handling the prenup photos is an experience by itself. I am pretty sure 10 or 20 years after being married, it is nicer to look at the prenup photos than the actual wedding itself. 🙂

    • topknotters

      I totally agree. Hiring stylists makes work a lot easier for the photographers and the couple as well. 🙂

  • I see a lot of prenup pictures that’s definitely has style! Stylist is actually a big help so the pictures will be more lively and beautiful. But how about the cost? I think couple should also save a portion for this.

  • I always find pre nup photos “sweeter” than the wedding itself. Perhaps because the two cooperate well to have a beautiful output or maybe the stylists are indeed that great to make the shoot really impressive. I never experienced having our pre nup photos but if given the chance, I would choose a farm as our location.

  • I will be having my not so soon church wedding ( mid or late 2016 or early 2017 ). and I am still thinking if I will have a stylist for our pre nup. But reading your thread makes me realized that yeah, I really need to have it so. Aside from hassle posing they will teach us. and I guess, they will prepare everything to make my not so soon wedding be successful

  • I totally agree with you that stylists are needed for pre-nuptials. Well, I’m not married yet, but I’ve experienced this from debut pictorial. Stylists really make things hassle free. It also looks the photo more professional and more presentable. Finally, those who are styled will feel more confident about their appearance and will feel better on the output of the pictorial session.

  • If you want to look a little more spruced up, then you really need to hire a professional stylist. I mean, it’s just one day right. I’ve seen my cousin really shine during her wedding thanks to the stylist she hired to help accentuate her best features. She was so freaking beautiful that I almost didn’t recognize her.

  • Prenup sessions and photos are not yet that popular during our time, probably there’s already a stylist around, but we’re unaware of. Couples of this generation will sure benefit from this once in a lifetime experience.

  • This is totally new to me! We don’t really do prenup photos but perhaps it will become more popular. I do agree with you though that it should be done right if it is done!

  • I can surely understand why this looks great. A lot of women especially probably would love this. Somehow I’m always a little bit scared that it would turn out fake. When you take those pictures, is it really about our love or more about how it’s looking from the outside. I can understand your points completely but I think i would just keep it more natural and spontaneous


    • topknotters

      Interesting point of view Sabine. I do understand where you’re coming from. I’ve talked to a lot of couples who has the same fears: not knowing how to pose, being camera-shy, and they feel it’s unnatural therefore they might look awkward in front of the camera or worst, faking it. But it also takes a good photographer to make it look all natural even though they were “styled” and being asked to “pose”. We already know 1 thing: That the “Love” is real. The next goal is to create good memories for the couple and fun experience during the shoot. That’s what makes it natural.

  • I would imagine the stress that comes with the pre-nup shoot itself is big enough, but thinking about what to wear and other little matters makes it even more so! I’m nothing close to doing something like this, but regardless of the occasion, I think it’s wise to hire a stylist for major events. 🙂 Besides, there’s a reason why they are called stylists. They’ll make you feel and look beautiful for that day.

    A stylist would really makes a difference. I remember when my closest friend is about to tie her knot and we are just chilling at the hotel lobby while waiting for things to be done. It was indeed a hassle free pre nup. However, to me if you are on a tighter budget and want to achieve a pro – looking prenup time management is key to it.

    Anyway, thank you for your on point thoughts on this mate. cheers! http://www.masterryo.wordpress.com
