Flowering shrubs should be pruned after they have finished blooming. Since a flowering shrub will channel its energy into making seeds, you should stay off that energy for future flower production by deadheading. Deadheading is possible on flowering shrubs that have large clusters of flowers, such as the hydrangea and lilac.
