Love through movement: A beautiful ballet inspired pre wedding photo session

If you’re a creative couple and want to take your art out onto the streets, the days leading up to your wedding could be the perfect opportunity. This dance inspired couple took their ballet steps outdoors for a unique and personalised pre wedding photo session.

The chic backdrop of the city was the perfect scene for them to display their love of each other and of their favourite pastime in full motion. Have a look at these arty and unique photos full of passion and fluidity.

Are you into ballet or contemporary dance? This is the perfect opportunity! Embrace your natural talents to create a very special and personal photo shoot. The backdrop doesn’t really matter, it can be outdoors in the summer or winter or in a location or city that really fits your personality and describes you both so well.

For this type of shoot, clothing doesn’t need to be smart and formal, on the contrary, opt for casual and comfy clothes that represent you. This makes it look so much more natural. Choose locations that you most love; it could be somewhere that means a lot to you both or somewhere you’ve both always wanted to discover and visit. To add a modern and urban touch to your photos choose somewhere that is buzzing with people; not only will your poses and dancing really wow members of the public, but their everyday lives in the background will create a spectacular backdrop.

For shots capturing movement, choose the most difficult or exaggerated ballet positions, or those musical scenes that have really inspired you in dance. Everything around you is a prop: lamp posts, walls, buildings, corners full of history or the simple streets themselves… All of these settings will help bring out originality to your personal shoot. Don’t be afraid, forget the public and be really brave and make a real show of your love of each other and dance.

You don’t have to be constantly dancing throughout. You could also take a few moments to hold hands and walk through the streets, enjoy the setting or stop for a moment in your favourite cafe. These type of shots will add a touch of romance to images framed by dance and ballet.
