  • Discuss your ideas about the theme, concept, outfits, etc. with your photographer. Do not surprise him with sudden change of plans on the day of the shoot, as he might come prepared with some ideas.
  • Photographers usually have a vibrant imagination when it comes to the final result. Take their professional advice and go with their instinct. It works well most of the times as they take into consideration many aspects like the natural light, the backdrop, colors of your outfits, etc.
  • Keep in mind that some places (especially historical monuments) might require taking a written permission from the authorities in charge.
  • While you should stick to your personality, its always nice to get some outfits in pretty, fluttering dresses which can catch the wind and show movement in a photograph.
  • Visit the location before the actual shoot to get an idea of what to expect.
  • Some places are best visited early in the mornings or late in the evening. Also, Peak day time has harsh sunlight and too many passers by. So, plan your shoot accordingly.

Hope this post helps you to select best photoshoot location to take your candid moments.
