What Props to bring for photoshoot ?

Just a few days ago, I stumbled upon this forum thread discussing about what props to bring for photoshoots and I was pleasantly surprised to see Oh Dear’s photo popping up and the brides-to-be were saying how cool they think my shoots are. *BIG LOVE!* 

Too often my couples are asking me for ideas what props to bring on a shoot. 

The props might be secondary because the Love that is shared between a couple and their story is what makes the shoot unique and lovely. But some good o’props would turn a lovely shoot into something AWESOME and personalized. So preparing some to bring along is good, plus it gives you something to ‘play’ with so you won’t feel too awkward when faced with a mad-snapper (aka Me). Lol. 

So where’s a list of PROPS TO BRING ALONG TO A PHOTOSHOOT.
(This is by no means completed, just some suggestions. Feel free to add to the list by commenting at the end of the post). Here goes! 

#1 – BALLOONS

Balloons make LOVELY props. They are fun, happy, colorful and of course Float. It’s alright if you can’t get helium ones, blow your own balloons and scatter them around the meadow. Looks whimsical enough too.
Plus they come in lots of shapes and sizes, there are heart shapes, balloons with smiley face, balloons with messages, animal shapes etc. Endless fun.

Not only does a brolly makes beautiful props, they come in really handy as well. Shades you from the sun from the rain. Plus they are easy to find.

Unique and personalized. Most importantly, easy to make. Just type in Words, print them out and VOLIA! You can also handwrite them or draw. Easy peasy. Convery messages, dates, anniversaries, names.

#6 – MUSICAL INSTRUMENT

Dreamy dreamy. Don’t we just love musics? I do. Bring a lot instruments that you play (ok recorders are allowed). I play the gu-zheng. And I been DREAMING and DREAMING of shooting with a real piano set in the middle of a meadow. Ahhh…

Toys are happy and FUN. It can be your first ever doll and if its erm.. not available, bring along the first soft toy that your guy gave you. Cute.

#9 – VINTAGE VESPA

Can be bicycle as well. I dunno, they just channel a very 70s vibe to me. I like. I though they look so sweet. Don’t you?

#10 – VINTAGE CARS

I saved the best for the last. VINTAGE CARS!! I LOVE vintage old cars. It’s the vibe they give. Every mile traveled, every bend turned, every scratches are all stories untold. Me and husband owe a 22yrs old car ourselves. Very attitude car, but we love it.

And lastly, as a BONUS.. 

#11 – ANYTHING GOES!

As the title, anything! Bring along photo frame / vintage suitcase / hat / shades. Or even your chair / mattress / books / board games.. ANYTHING. So long you’r not afraid the item might get abit dirty, then yeah!!
