Pre wedding shoot is the prologue to a wedding ceremony; a teaser to your happily-ever-after! The trend of professional wedding photography is here to stay and it is the one exception where you must follow the crowd. A pre wedding shoot is where the couple short-lists a bunch of picturesque locations and curates a list of top wedding photographers. The chosen photographer arrives with his ‘magic gadgets’. They then team together to brainstorm about pre wedding photoshoot ideas before reaching the location to make the best of everyone’s time and efforts.
And so, the saga begins- a day full of quirky poses, beautiful frames, out-of-the-box props, colorful costumes and a whole lot of fun. For the best pre wedding shoot, the right location is a must! There’s a plethora of locations in Mumbai that serve the purpose. To best capture the essence of the city, we, at Venue First have curated a list of locations best-suited for a pre wedding shoot in Mumbai
- Where The Couple First Met
Talking a walk down the memory lane to where it all began is always a good idea. It could be anywhere in Mumbai- at the bus stop, coffee shop, mall, park, restaurant, neighbourhood or your everyday chai stall. The place where you first met ‘the one’ makes for a great pre-wedding shoot location.
- The Streets, Taxis And Autos
Capture the city’s true charm in your photographs! Take candid pictures while roaming around the lively streets of Mumbai with the architectural marvels as a backdrop. Taxis or autos also make for great shoots! And if you wish to look more euphoric and less conscious in the pictures, bite into mouth-watering vada pao. After all, food makes everyone a lot happier!
- Kala Ghoda Or Street Art Murals
For the love of art, head to Kala Ghoda which hosts splendid art events. It’s a great location to consider if you want some fun and flair in your pre-wedding shoot pictures. Walk through the lanes of Bandra and Chapel Road where the street murals make for brilliant backgrounds.
