Unusual Photo Locations for the 7 Types of Couples

Photoshoot/Videoshoot Ideas, Ideas We Love

Create unforgettable memories with your partner at your pre-wedding photo shoot, where you channel your creative energy as a couple and choose locations that appeal to your aesthetic and your personalities, whether that means crossing the seas to an offshore island or hanging out in a cool, independent bookstore. Here are our best finds for gorgeous photos, which also double as great date ideas!

1) The Hipsters

Hide away in a remote part of Hort Park and dress up the space with tiny balls of light, and set up a picnic space with delectable desserts (great to munch on when you get peckish during the shoot), candles, a fruit platter, a bouquet of flowers, as well as a bottle of red wine and sparklers to create a romantic ambience. Vary the atmosphere with a teepee decorated with flowers.

How about heading to a remote location like Tuas? We suggest bringing along some props to create a more romantic setting, such as fairy lights and a tent made from tulle and adorned with fairy lights for a picture-perfect photoshoot that mimics glamping, set against the gorgeous colours of the setting sun and the purple hues of the sky at dusk.

Or, how about venturing a little further and capturing your love at a busy crossing in Hong Kong?

2) The Culture Lovers

Take some time out of your busy schedule to enjoy a leisurely cup of tea--and a stunning vintage-themed pre wedding photoshoot. A Tea Chapter is decorated to reflect traditional elements of Chinese, Japanese and Korean design (in separate rooms), and is perfect for that 1960's vibe. Try the range of black, red and floral teas during your shoot, show off treasured memories in a wicker suitcase and serenade your loved one with a ukelele.

Alternatively, you could head to Tamarind Hill atop Labrador Nature Reserve, which features a historic colonial bungalow.

6) The Bookworms

Book- and coffee-lovers can take their wedding photoshoot pictures at some of the independent bookstores in Singapore like Woods in the Books tucked away in Tiong Bahru, where they can have a laidback photoshoot that's complemented with small chalkboards as props, and iced coffee from Plain Vanilla bakery nearby. It's a perfect and Instaworthy location for your pre-wedding shoots.

And if you and your other half met in school, wouldn't it be symbolic to have your shoot at a library?

7) The Sporty

A great fan of the outdoors? Have a wonderful pre-wedding shoot off the coast of Singapore in Pulau Ubin, where you could kayak around the island or work together to surmount all the obstacles in the course at Outward Bound Singapore -- a reflection of the teamwork you'll need in your marriage.

And, if you guys are more into combat sports (or want to show that you have fought hard for this relationship), dressing up in boxing gear might not be a bad idea.
