Mind you, it all depends on which city you and the groom to be is residing. So for instance if you’re in the Capital, Jaipur or Dehradun side can be a good location for a weekend outing + you get gorgeous pictures clicked.

Agra, palaces and forts in Rajasthan, are good choices for a PreWedding Photoshoot. The natural setting requires minimum effort from the couples side, just choose your outfits, get your photographer and go click click in every corner of the property.

Whether you are in east, west, north or south, there are a number of spots in and around every city. So if you’re in Hyderabad or Bangalore, you can think of going to Pondicherry or Nandi Hills. Ditto for eastern cities, you can think of planning a weekend trip to a national park/reserve and click pictures in the wild or you can also try the next option below.

#4 Choose a fancy hotel/resort for the PreWedding Photoshoot

You want a drop dad gorgeous background for your pictures, and you don’t wish to go out of the city, or spend an entire weekend on the photoshoot, then booking a hotel is the next best option. Choose one which is a heritage hotel, or has some great photoshoot locations both inside and outside.

How about having some actual fun while getting candid shots clicked? More than the bridetobe, I am sure this idea is every groom to be’s best option out there. Normally men get so bored with photoshoots etc, they have absolutely zero patience level to pose, smile and are forced in most cases. So, if you want your man to enjoy the experience as much as you, choosing a theme park can be a good alternative.
