Your journey as a ‘soon to be married couple’ did not start in just one day or at one place and that is the essence you want to carry over to your pre wedding photoshoot if possible. Look at all the locations that are meaningful for you – whether it is the place you first met, your regular lunch spot or the beautiful park that you visited with your beloved at every chance you got. The college gates, the university library (if you can get to it) and places which are special to you both will add a memorable aspect to your Indian pre wedding photoshoot. While creative wedding photography has many ticks up it’s sleeve for memorable photos, the chemistry of the couple in a particular location always manages to find it’s place into the photo as well.

Props can be added into the mix whenever possible. In an effort to make it all the more memorable, a personal touch is warranted.

So there you have it, just remember to not get too worried about the end result. Just have fun with it and we’re sure you’ll end up with the most beautiful photos that will provide a lifetime of wonderfully cherished memories.
