Best Places to Shoot Pre - and Post - Wedding Photography

The big fat Indian weddings have become grander, and how! Pre-wedding and post-wedding photo shoots have become a norm, and why not, they are fun, romantic and immortalize beautiful moments captured between the couple. The exotic locations add a certain allure and pizzazz that make the photographs truly special.

A photo shoot goes flawlessly well when the location it is shot in is as equally perfect  – the backdrop matters as much as the subjects. It gives those special effects that help create a story and add character to the photographs. And what better place than Kerala, to find an appropriate location for your pre-wedding and post-wedding photo shoots. Kerala's exotic locations and varied landscapes provide the right background for wedding photography. 

We have curated a list of stunning locations to help you pick a destination for your pre and post-wedding photo shoot.

 


Alleppey

Alleppey or Alappuzha, as it is now known, is breathtakingly beautiful. Lush greenery, coconut palms, paddy fields, and the backwaters make for an ideal romantic setting, for a photo shoot. A skilled photographer can play around with these natural props to create something really beautiful. Water and greenery create magic in photographs. They are natural elements that add a soft touch and a little mystery to the photographs. 

The shoreline of the Laccadive Sea, in the same region, is another ideal location. Imagine the ethereal results, as the photographer captures the waves crashing onto the sands and you posing as a couple with the wind in your hair.

Photoshoots on houseboats are popular too; the rustic boats and the quaint background gives character to the photographs. The photos come out more like promos for a movie.

Bekal

The Bekal Fort provides an imposing landscape for a pre-post wedding photoshoot. The towering ramparts of the fort complement the photo shoot and add a certain majestic class to the photographs. The fort stands on the shores of the Arabian Sea, its red-bricked walls and the sea in the background provide a regal setting for the photographs. In some places, the fort skirts the seashore, and here the waves crash into the high walls creating a captivating display, as the water explodes in the air. It creates a surreal aura that when captured perfectly gives the photographs a magical touch.

The surrounding terrain is rocky, with patches of green and the sea surrounding it. The different elements add a special touch to the pre and post wedding photo shoot in Kerala.


Kochi

Kochi or Cochin is another destination suitable for pre and post wedding photoshoots. It has a bit of everything – backwaters, paddy fields, and swaying palms, sweeping white sands and the azure sea, Chinese fishing nets, quaint streets, and old-world charm. A talented photographer can create magic in these settings. 

The advantage of Kochi is that it is centrally located and well connected. Let the photographer capture dramatic moments, in natural settings and natural lighting. The Fort Kochi area, with its British, Portuguese and Dutch colonial architecture is another superb location to capture some beautiful shots. A photo shoot here results in chic photographs.

Kumarakom

Set your wedding story in Kumarakom, in the midst of nature. Kumarakom is a picturesque village standing on the banks of Vembanad Lake, the largest lake in the state. The picture-perfect setting is ideal for vivid, naturalistic shots.

For a more intimate setting, explore other options, such as resorts, there are plenty of them in this place.  


Munnar

Munnar has all the trappings required for pre and post wedding photography sessions. Nestled in the Western Ghats, Munnar is breathtakingly beautiful. The green slopes of the mountain ranges, the mist rising out of nowhere, the rolling tea plantations, the brooks, and waterfalls - it is tranquil and dreamy for a perfect photo shoot. A photo session here will ensure high-class snaps resembling those that you find in high-class magazines. There are many quiet spots where pre-wedding photography can be done without onlookers watching the couple.
