Featuring Janan and Jace, a creative, sporty, fun-loving Louvre pair who’s here to teach you a photoshoot hack – which is by choosing the lifestyle wedding photography
approach you can just be yourself!
When Janan and Jace shared with us their interests and how they would like to do away with the conventional bridal shoot where huge emphasis is on lush sceneries, and instead focus on the moments of their own unique journey, we were more than delighted to listen because we knew that the lifestyle photography approach was perfect for them!
Lifestyle photography is essentially a photography style which intends to capture people in situations, simulating a candid-like moment and a part of everyday life. This photography style is most recommended for the new generation weds-to-be who want a very candid approach and are camera shy.
Since your wedding photoshoot is indeed a milestone in your wedding journey, sharing your love story with your family and friends in photos is definitely a good way for them to experience your blissful moments too. Also, if you’ve yet to notice, Janan and Jace also use cue cards to present their relationship milestones in a form of a wedding photo story, what a creative wedding shoot idea!
Sometimes being in the presence of your lover is all it needs for you to look and feel comfortable. As Janan and Jace decided to go for a casual photoshoot, for the first look they went ahead with a relaxed sporty look, simply because it just shouts them!
For lifestyle photography photos, the beauty in it is that the approach is casual and no matter whether you opt for gowns or casual wear, it focuses more of the moments instead of fixed or rigid photo shoot poses. This photography technique is similar to a photojournalistic style but with a personalized story attached to it.
With this visual story-telling through pre-wedding pictures, it is a new style which makes pictures speak the meaning of love in every couple’s perspective with additional warmth and touch to the wedding album to make it even more personalized.
If you’d like to make your photoshoots even more special, you could even include your favourite pastimes together even as simple as sharing a cuppa together, sharing bible readings together and simply just appreciating each other’s presence, the unfading beauty of the gentle and quiet spirits.
When you’re in love, you will feel like you’re on top of the world. Hence the spontaneous couple decided to take a shot to showcase the gorgeous landscape of Singapore’s skyline with light leaks from the sunset as a natural photo effect. In this set, the couple decided to go for a more dressed up look with a simple white silky dress and a grey shirt. But can you guess why?
It’s because this was where the couple had their first kiss and wanted to relive that special moment to be captured in their photos!

Breaking out of the norm, the couple decided for an elegant and cozy outdoor wedding ceremony to exchange their vows.
