Pre-wedding shoots go a way back, ever since wedding photography came into existence.

When we sat down with the founders of Happy Flashbacks, Noopur and Anish – one of the most sought-after wedding photographers in Delhi – what they had to tell us about pre-wedding shoots was quite a revelation. “Pre-wedding shoots, is one of our favourite parts of shooting a wedding.” For them, it is like weaving a story for any couple who comes to them. The shoot is all about capturing the individual personalities of the bride and groom and how they have now come together to tie the knot.
“Surprisingly, the location for Happy Flashbacks is never a concern. Whatever best reflects the essence of the individuals and their relationship, the pre-wedding shoot location and styling is then decided accordingly.”
A Happy Flashback Memory
One of the recent pre-wedding shoots done by Happy Flashbacks was for a couple who were bibliophiles. For a pre-wedding shoot location, the first, rather boring idea to would be to shoot in a classroom or a library or among a pile of books. Upon further inquiry, they also learnt that the couple shared a crazy love for mangoes. Passionate about books and mangoes! How about a shoot with books as props around mango trees. This was some fun out of the box thinking by the Happy Flashbacks duo.
