Photographer ? Hired.
Pre-wedding shoot ? Date fixed.
Venue ? Oh! Oh!
In recent years, the concept of ‘pre-wedding shoots’ has come into light in India and has fascinated many couples all over the country a lot. It is a great way for the bride and the groom to know each other better ( in case of an arrange marriage ) or simply enjoy each other’s company without the relatives lurking all over.
The photographs can either be taken at an exotic location or at a place that holds some memories for you. But it is not as easy as it sounds. Finding a location is the toughest job ( for some places, you even need to get permission). The best location ( that many photographers also suggest ) is usually the nature, as it gives the natural light and the aura for romantic pictures. Also, it is cost effective as no set has to be prepared.
Don’t panic. We are here for your rescue. Here are some venues in and around Delhi for some amazing “in-love” clicks ( and that too within budget ).
