Photo by Rish Photography> Amusement Parks/ Colony Park with Slides Imagine the colour and the enthusiasm in the photos! Amusement parks scream happy, and that's what your photos will also be! You can have pictures on the giant wheel, or on some very retro-looking jhoolas! Photos with cotton candy stands, or those-balloon shooting games will also look super cute and colourful! You might have to take prior permission if you plan on going to a well-known amusement park, so make sure that's in place before you plan it out. Alternative: If you don;t know of any amusement park that would have this kind of space, just head to a good park in your colony which has rides- just a slide, a seesaw, and a merry go round is all you need.

This could be a destination shoot where the waters are clear, you could try the Andamans or Lakshwadeep- a pre-wedding honeymoon plus shoot! If that's too much, then you could also do it in a big swimming pool- but of course, the effect isn't going to be the same! But just picturise both of you kissing each other under water... now that's one image you don't get to see too often! Hydrophobics, you consider the other options!

> Horse StableKnow a friend who owns a horse or someone who can get you inside a stable. Dress like yr going for a polo match and let your photographer create a story around you, your husband and the horse
> Go totally insane with adventure sportsIf you've read WMG's interview with Morvi from Morvi Images, she talks about having a pre-wedding shoot while sky diving or in a hot air balloon- now that would be absolutely divine wouldn't it? You could choose a destination abroad or do it in India itself. You could go up in a hot air balloon in places like Pushkar or Lonavala, or have a private ride arranged in the outskirts of almost any big city!

> At a restaurant/ dining room with english teacups aka "Breakfast at Tiffany"This could be so simple- just your dining table, a pot of flowers, tea, cookies and some floral print cutlery. Or just head to a restaurant which has a similar setup for a gorgeous pre-wedding session. You could also dress the part and make it vintage and english like Breakfast at Tiffanys!

> In the kitchenWhile your kitchen may not seem like the most romantic place to have a pre-wedding shoot, think of all the fun you could have with cake batter, spatulas and utensils in general. Plus lets be honest- a bit of whipped cream and chocolate syrup is all you need to get a bit frisky
> Post'er' it!Pick some posters of your favourite Hollywood and Bollywood movies, and you could replicate them with both of you starring in it! These can be featured during the wedding, and imagine how cool they'll look on the walls of your new house!
Hire a private yacht!If you're in or near Mumbai or Chennai, then having a pre-wedding shoot in the beach is common, but how about you hire a private yacht for a day? Won't that be fun and very very uber glam? You can wear your nautical best, rock your best sunglasses and imagine the awesome pictures you can get- day or night!
