Updated: Oct 30, 2018

Want to bring a little unique touch to your upcoming pre-wedding shoot, but don’t want to fuss too much over bringing too many props and barang barang with you? Here are a few simple easy to procure items, that can help create stunning effects in your pre-wedding photos. Just look at how some other couples have already used it in their photoshoots.


Having a night time shoot? Maybe consider using sparklers in your photography for a stunning effect like this. Imagine an image like this projected on the large screen during your wedding, in your photo album or even a canvas hanging above your bed.

Super simple, easy to buy (try Ikea, Artfriend or even Daiso for a large variety of frames) yet beautiful effect.

Our favourite photography prop of all time. Easy to purchase (we got ours from Mini Toons) and can be used in so many different ways depending on the type of balloons, colors you use etc. Choose pastel colors for a dreamy backdrop effect like this, or go with bright colors that give that amazing contrast on screen and on paper.

Confetti has its pros and cons. It gives amazing effects as such, but it’s quite the hassle to clean it up especially if it's in an outdoor setting (do not litter!). Sometimes the effect is worth the clean up effort though - just try to get the shot in as few tries as possible.

If you aim to create a dream-like atmosphere or backdrop with minimal hassle and set up, bubbles definitely would be your go to prop. Cheaply available at most party stores with minimal set up or clean up, bubbles are definitely a winner for awesome props in our books.

Colored Powder

Looking to inject some fun into your casual pre-wedding shoot (we don’t recommend this for formal shoots as the dresses might get stained)? Here’s a way to have some crazy fun with your partner during a shoot and have amazing photos out of it.

Open to trying something unique and different? Masks are a great way of showcasing another side of your personality without going too crazy. This is also a plus point for camera shy couples who might want to take a break from facing the camera the whole time.

Dream Catcher

Last but not least, a symbolic prop that also looks amazing as a backdrop or simple prop in hand. May only good dreams come your way as a couple together.
