Weddings can be a tiresome affair with a plethora of arrangements to be made, right from a wardrobe makeover to assorting gifts. Pre-wedding photoshoots can help you capture these precious moments. While planning for such shoots, the location is as important as picking the right outfit. Here are the top seven locations from India and abroad chosen for couples to look their best for a pre-wedding photo shoot:

* Rajasthan

The land of deserts, Rajasthan has been extremely popular for pre-wedding photoshoots and for weddings. It is blessed with beautiful forts, palaces and minarets that provide an ideal setting for a traditional-themed pre-wedding shoot. Unique aesthetics and beautiful architecture make the state a photographer’s paradise, adding a lot of character to pre-wedding pictures. The state is also filled with love stories and ballads such as that of prince Dhola and princess Maru, which is often used as a theme for pre-wedding photo albums.

* Andaman Islands

One of the earliest places where human habitation began in the Indian subcontinent, the Andamans have recently emerged as a great place for vacations. However, its potential as a pre-wedding photoshoot destination is unparalleled. From the white sand beach at Havelock Island to the lush green forest-lined beaches of Neil Island, there are numerous picturesque locations.

* Thailand

Thailand and its capital Bangkok have been immortalised in the hugely popular film, The Hangover II, as an ultimate bachelor’s party destination. However, it is also a great place to do a pre-wedding photoshoot with either the hustle and bustle of the city as a backdrop or the natural beauty, sprawling beaches and Buddhist monasteries. The place is great for night-time and futuristic photographs with a background of neon lights.

* Mauritius

Beautiful beaches such as the Ile aux Cerfs and the unique Seven Colored Earths are spots that are perfectly suited for pre-wedding photographs. Mauritius is also an affordable option to travel to for photoshoots.
