Pre Wedding Locations In Pune

Pre Wedding Locations In Pune

When a lot of couples start planning for pre wedding ( or post wedding ) shoot in Pune, they are somewhat clueless on cost and location. They feel confused about which place they should choose for a photo shoot.

I am a firm believer that location has a very limited role in the outcome of the shoot.

An experienced photographer’s job is to bring the chemistry of the couple in the pictures. The chemistry is not much dependent on the location.

The place for pre-wedding shoot is a just backdrop and a way to enhance the look and feel of the shoot.

The main criterion for choosing the location depends upon the overall budget for the shoot and the style of shoot.

 Most of the places require permission and subsequent charges to use the location. It could vary anywhere from Rs.500 to Rs.50,000 ( and even 1 Lac+ ). Hence budget is an important factor in choosing a place.

For a casual shoot, a public place can work but if you are looking for a stylized shoot or a romantic pre wedding shoot, a private location such as resorts are more comfortable.

All these private places have a limited crowd which makes it easy for couples to get into the groove. All the location charges in private resorts are highly negotiable.
