The first concept up on your list is the traditional form of pre-wedding photography. This concept is where you delve into your cultural roots or display the traditional heritage of your culture. It works best for couples who are planning a completely traditional wedding celebration.
If this concept is something that interests you and your better half then pick a location with a rustic and antique vibe to it. For your outfits, go for something traditional but yet classy and modern. You could ask your photographer to click a few black and white or sepia tone pictures to add an authentic hint to your photographs.
Opting for the glamorous concept of pre-wedding photography means you are signing up for splendid outfits, breathtaking and grand locations. These days this concept is loved and most opted for as well. Couples that go for a concept like this for their pre-wedding shoot, they prefer elegance above everything else.
For your outfits, wear something elegant that will talk style through your images. While choosing a location, narrow down to places with a beautiful landscape or an iconic landmark. Remember to showcase your outfits, an amazing location, and your chemistry through these clicks.
If keeping things subtle is what you and your partner prefer then this concept is for you. It is unlike the glamorous idea where you flash fancy dresses and shoot locations. The casual concept of pre-wedding photography is more of a modest approach. For an informal notion of your pre-wedding shoot, you can go for different themes that resonate with you and your partner. Some prefer to showcase their first date and relive those memories, while others would like to display their hobbies.
For your casual pre-wedding shoot you can consider dressing up in a flowy dress while your partner can compliment you in some shorts and a shirt.
The indigenous concept has grown in popularity in the past few years. It is a concept of getting candid pictures clicked of the couples. Photographers also call it ‘Candid Photography’. It is more about having your picture clicked candidly while you and your partner and carrying out an activity or maybe just talking and expressing emotions. For images like these, you do not need to pose, be natural and let the chemistry between you’ll do its magic and show up in pictures. Be very mindful of the photographer you pick, as not all photographers are experienced in candid photography.
The pre-wedding photoshoot is done at a location which fulfils all the elements required for a shoot. Most popular and common public place for pre-wedding shoots in Delhi is Hauz Khas village and Lodhi Garden.

The couples may also choose the storyline of their pre-wedding photoshoot, which could vary from random romantic clicks to a set story pattern, where they can spend a day together with the photographer who captures the natural essence of the couple.
It takes more than just a friendly camera to take beautiful pictures. What makes a great photographer is someone always ready to grow with the trend, creative and also technically professional. Here is a listicle of a few qualities that you should look for in your pre-wedding photographer.

The pre-wedding photoshoot is a representation of your journey as a couple. The photos should tell the story of who you are or how you began or how you are as a couple. The chemistry of the photographer with the couple matters as much as the chemistry between the couple. It would be best if you were comfortable with your photographer to let your emotions out. You can choose any theme for your photoshoot, but the essence of the photographs come from the feelings it showcases. Raw and candid emotions that are genuine and pure make a pre-wedding photo genuinely great.
