New Zealand’s mix of landscapes provides a visual feast for those who want a variety in their photoshoot. From large green plains, turquoise blue lakes and snow-capped mountains, choosing the right season to go is key to capturing the best of what Mother Nature provides.

The last quarter of the year is probably the best period to visit New Zealand as you will be able to witness its astounding beauty in full force. It’s Summer season from November onwards and that’s when you can catch the gorgeous lavender fields and lupins in the South Island near Lake Tekapo.

Paris needs no explanation as to why it is the most popular destination for pre-wedding photoshoots. The city of love is known for its iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Arc de Triumph and Palace of Versailles.

Perhaps the best time to go will be between October-November, where the weather turns a little cooler so that you don’t melt under all that heavy make-up and costumes. Of course, the countryside provides many interesting photo opportunities as well, from Lavender fields, snow mountains to majestic castles and churches, so if you have the time and budget, don’t neglect those!

Magnificent volcanic mountains, captivating rice paddies and beautiful waterfalls make Bali a popular pick. What’s more the nearby location also means it is likely to be much cheaper compared to flying halfway across the world. With beautiful white beaches, stunning sunset views and a touch of the Asian exotic, Bali is the place to be if you are looking for a touch of paradise!

Priceless Renaissance architectures and religious monuments are no doubt part of the charm of getting your wedding photos shot in Italy.
