Pre-wedding shoots are captured memories of one’s courtship and thus hold a distinct charm for every couple. While the days leading to ‘The-Big-Fat-Delhi-Wedding’ can be hectic for everyone involved, a pre wedding photo shoot can give you both some time to unwind and celebrate togetherness!
The wedding season is officially about to kick off. But before that comes the season of pre-wedding shoots. You know the photographer you want to hire, the props you want to use, the clothes that you want to wear but do you know where are you going to shoot?
