Guilin is a popular travel destination, but who would have thought it would be such a great bridal portrait destination too? We were completely floored by the beauty in these photos. A mark of an amazing photographer is the ability to play with light, dimensions and framing, and translate that into their photos. Here, the use of architectural breezeblocks and the various textures of nature helped to create the perfect backdrop. Louis Gan Photography is indeed one of the best out there – colour us impressed!

Pretty in Pink Bridal Portraits Taken in Jaipur, India

Jessielyee Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Our hearts sang as we took in the vivid colours and diversity captured in these beautiful bridal portraits that were shot in Jaipur, India. What an exciting and stunning backdrop to complement this handsome couple’s spontaneity!

Having met and fallen in love while at work, this couple decided to tie the knot in India, and visit several cities afterwards as part of a short trip. Meeting their photographer in the mesmerising Pink City of Jaipur for some post-wedding shots was an easy decision to make. The city’s attractions served up a brilliant display of architecture and culture, and the couple’s carefully planned outfits ensured a great visual outcome.

“The two-day photography session went really well, as the couple was comfortable enough to be affectionate in front of the camera,” shared Jessielyee. Photography. We love their exuberance, and we just can’t get enough of these photos!

Joyce: “Our photographer, Bobby’s brother, had recently returned from Yosemite, and we fell in love with the explosion of colours in various parts of the park. After much research, especially on Pinterest, we discovered these other areas in Arizona. We’d never been to any of these locations even as tourists, so we figured we’d make an adventure out of it as well!

“Planning wise, I would be the one finding photo ops and their locations while Beam would do the plotting of routes. Our entire photoshoot took about five days, including travelling.

“As cliché as it sounds, the most memorable part of the whole trip was the experience itself, and to have my husband with me. We made sure to be present in the moment and appreciate the beauty around us. We were also very fortunate to have found an anchoring friendship in Bobby and his fiancée. This whole experience truly was a dream come true for us.”

Engagement Shoot By the Ocean in Canggu, Indonesia

Photo by Fire, Wood and Earth. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Often what makes an engagement photo album extra special is the friendship that the couple shares with their photographer. This makes the shoot even more meaningful, as seen here in these images. Here at this chic beach villa in Canggu, Indonesia, this couple let their hair down for a fun and romantic evening while their photographer snapped away. See their delight in each other as they twirled around, waded ankle deep through the waves, and admired the beautiful horizon before them. To top it off, an amazing sunset at Seseh Beach gave them the perfect golden hour. As Fire, Wood & Earth shared: “The great vibes and perfect chemistry here made this session special.” Well done!

We see a world of adventure and joy ahead for this couple, who shot their spectacular wedding portrait album at Boranup in the south of Perth. Opting for a casual photoshoot, the couple (and their photographer) spent an enjoyable and idyllic day journeying through the lush and tranquil Boranup woodlands and quaint town of Fremantle. Nature’s forest hues and golden sunsets certainly made for a wonderful tapestry that ensured a memorable day out. Kudos to Iluminen for these fantastic photos!

Just Strolling Through Shanghai With an Adorable Alpaca

Photo by Andrew Yep Photographie. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Living and working in a hip city like Shanghai with your fiancé is a special experience. You have a bank of memories from building this chapter of your lives together, away from all that is familiar, and you want to remember how you’ve made this place home. Shanghai, with its iconic streets, memorable frames of skyscrapers, and eclectic mix of Chinese-European residences, all make for a meaningful engagement album that encapsulates this Malaysian couple’s life in this season.

We love their carefree spirit in these images, and check out that adorable alpaca curiously eyeing its surroundings. It’s an unusual addition to an engagement album but it’s so docile, you can’t help but be charmed by it. To capture a sense of the local fashion, the couple wear Fei Yue, a well-known sneaker brand produced in that very city. Thank you for sharing these brilliant shots, Andrew Yep Photographie!

From Traditional to Contemporary in Iconic Japan

Photo by Terralogical. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This pre-wedding album has it all – romance, flair and characteristics of the gorgeous couple’s unique relationship – all shot in the prolific landscape of Japan. Dressed traditionally in sky blue kimonos and with a matching parasol, the couple took to the streets, bazaar and shrine for an enjoyable morning stroll before later changing into their gown and suit, and finally, their casual wear.

The photographer’s artistry here is tangible. The vivid colours around them stand out in sharp contrast, breathing life into these precious moments as if a tribute to the love story of the couple’s youth before their next season as man and wife. Thank you for these brilliant captures, Terralogical!

Engagement Shoot at the World’s Largest Salt Flat in Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

Photography by Metrophoto. Destination bridal portraits in Bolivia. www.theweddingnotebook.com

There are two crucial life lessons to glean from this arresting engagement album: perseverance and making time count. Just as these values will apply to their union as man and wife, this couple experience it first-hand in a challenging but rewarding 2-part engagement portrait series shot amidst extraordinary landscapes in Peru and Bolivia.
 
They engaged Manila-based Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto, whose vast experience with destination photography would be imperative to the success of the task. Together, they planned for a 3-day shoot in spectacular locations like Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat (a lake gone dry), and Laguna Hedionda, a saline lake in the Andean Altiplano that is notable for having pink and white flamingos.

What an outstanding job by Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto! These shots are the second part in a bridal portraits series taken across Bolivia, so head on over to check out Part 1, which was shot in Peru. Thanks for these amazing photos, Metrophoto!
