Some of the top places for a free pre-wedding shoot include Hauz Khas, Connaught Place, Lodhi Garden, Humayun's Tomb, and more.

Pre-wedding photoshoots are always special. No matter how many times a couple gets themselves clicked together during dating, none of those can match the eagerness, excitement & enthusiasm of a pre-wedding photoshoot. The exhilarating feeling of getting engaged, the emotional undercurrent and the tension related to the beginning of a new life – all of them mix together and create a thrill that is comparable to none. And that passion and thrill become apparent in the expressions of the couple during the pre-wedding photo shoot which makes those images very very special and the whole event an experience of a lifetime. But an amazing act needs an extraordinary stage. Likewise, a stunning photograph needs an exceptional ambiance and background that best captures the moods of the subject. And if capturing the mood is an art, then reflecting the mood of the subject on his creation is the work of a true artist. 

In this article, we talk about the top 10 locations for pre-wedding photoshoots in Delhi NCR which provide the perfect backdrop for extraordinary pre-wedding photography that best reflect the mood of the soon-to-be-married couple.
