Amidst all the chaos, the pre-wedding photo shoot comes as a respite from all the hassle involved around planning a wedding.This is when the bride and the groom can call for a time-out to finally relax, let free and share a few romantic moments at stunning photo shoot venues!And when we talk about the D-day, the part that is most looked forward to (apart from saying ‘I do’ and the food, ofcourse) is the photo shoot because the wedding day usually just whizzes past you, and to relive it, we all end up turning back to our wedding photographs!

Taking pictures at a touristy location is no joke! Most of the pictures that you take would be selfies which will most definitely be bombarded by the heads or flailing hands of passerbys. Apart from that, you gotta hold your arm out until your partner has fixed their hair for the 5th time–oops–then they blinked. Oh, and all the different angles that you have to try to get both yourselves and the epic background visible and in focus for the shot is a whole other issue!And if by any chance you wanted to try a different pose, you would have to ask strangers to take a picture, which well in most cases would be shaky or blurred! Put an end to all this awkwardness, simply hire a honeymoon photographer, who being a professional will ensure that you have clear, crisp and artistic photographs!

4. Content for the gram

Aren’t your arms tired of taking countless selfies? You would say no, we have a selfie stick for that very reason. Okay, but then what about the quality of your pictures? To this you would say that you own a DSLR! But who is going to capture your photo in the DSLR? And do you really want to carry around a tripod or a selfie stick or a DSLR with you all the time? The answer would most likely be no! Why go through all the trouble when you can simply hire a honeymoon photographer who can make sure that you have professional grade pictures without all the hassle!

6. Quality matters

Cellphone cameras are easy and free but lack the professional detailed quality that a professional photoshoot will deliver. Switch from those blurry pix-elated images to clear, crisp shots that will ensure that your honeymoon pictures are shot in a beautifully special and artistic way! You can be assured that the photographs taken by a professional will come out with amazing clarity and precision!

7. Be present in the moment!

Your honeymoon is all about spending quality time with your partner, exploring the destination, walking hand in hand into the sunset, talking sweet nothings! You really shouldn’t be worried about getting good pictures at all the beautiful locations and distract yourselves from each other’s company! Be present in the moment and immerse yourself in the beauty of the destination along with your partner and leave the worries related to capturing good pictures to your honeymoon photographer!

8. Locals know locales the best

By hiring a photographer who is a local, you have practically hired a map that will lead you to the best locations in town! Locals know locales the best, some of which may even be hidden gems, away from the crowd, where you could enjoy some peaceful time with your partner and get some really great pictures! Also by having a local photographer you have with you someone who can provide insider expertise about all the good eateries and shopping streets! It would also be easier to converse with people as they would know the local language as well!

9. Make every side your best side
