4 Fun Photoshoot Ideas for Your Hens Weekend

Girls Group Photo

Opting for stunning Hunter Valley hens weekend packages is the ideal way to create an unforgettable occasion filled with laughter, joy and lasting memories. And you will want to be sure to capture all the special moments that will be remembered for many years to come. 

These days, smartphones are more than adequate for taking high-quality photographs, but here are some top tips to ensure you create a portfolio of fantastic photos to share after the event.

1) Location is Everything

As we all know, the background of photos has a massive impact on how they turn out. However, in the Hunter Valley, you will be spoilt for choice. Be sure to make full use of the beautiful vineyards, rolling green hills, and stunning sunsets as the gorgeous backdrop for both group and individual shots. These picturesque settings will instantly set the tone for your pictures of your unique weekend getaway.

2) Dressing Up

When planning the hens weekend getaway, ask everyone to bring some special outfits that match your chosen theme. Some options you can consider include glamorous, bohemian, retro, vintage, sporty, or beach casual. Select these options to coincide with your group’s personalities and interests. 

Decide if there will be a colour theme, as you can create some beautiful group shots with coordinated attire. Another idea is incorporating the bridal theme with sashes, veils, tiaras, or flowers.

3) Using Props or Accessories

These should be aligned to suit the group, but you can consider some fun objects like balloons, confetti, streamers, hats, masks, and scarves. Other items, such as moustaches, oversized glasses, and long cigarette holders, can add an element of fun.

Personalised messages can be written on handheld chalkboards to surprise the bride with charming missives from those who care about her the most when she sees the photos later.

4) Mixing Posed and Candid Shots

While organised photoshoots are a great idea, don’t forget about the candid shots that show the love and enjoyment as they occur naturally. Try and be unobtrusive in capturing the gestures, hugs, laughs and looks as the weekend unfolds. This will add an authentic feel and great variety to your photo collection for this special event.
