7 Bali Pre-wedding Photoshoot Locations Off The Beaten Path

We share with you 7 pre-wedding photoshoot locations beyond the island of Bali, for couples who are looking for a unique look and feel to their pre-wedding photos.

Many couples love this island as a pre-wedding destination, because Bali offers plenty of photoshoot locations, from the grand mountains in the north to the rocky cliffs in the south. But sometimes the Island of Gods can get a little crowded and touristy.

For those who seek something different, venture out of Bali to the nearby islands of Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida. There are hidden gems littered across these islands!

Nusa Lembongan

More couples are considering Lembongan. It’s a small island, just 30 mins ferry ride from Sanur beach and it offers plenty of options for your pre-wedding photography. Besides Devil’s Tears and the Yellow Bridge, there are other locations such as Dream Beach and Mushroom Bay that you can consider.

1. Devil’s Tears

Devil’s Tears is probably the most iconic photo location in Lembongan Island. But there’s good reasons for that. This spot offers an AMAZING sunset view.

Komang of Diktat Photography shared some tips, “avoid the tourist crowd by doing your pre-wedding session during a weekday. Wait out for the wave to come for a water blow to have a beautiful backdrop, but be careful because the rocks can be sharp and the ground slippery.”

2, Yellow Bridge

The suspension bridge connects the two islands of Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. Rent a small boat and let your photographer capture beautiful photos. We highly recommend you to come here in the morning to catch the soft light. There are seaweed farms just a short stroll away, where you can take a few shots too.

Nusa Penida

The largest island of the trio, Nusa Penida is well known for its pristine diving sites. Nusa Penida lacks most tourist facilities, so do not expect things you’ll find in Bali here.

4. Crystal Bay

Crystal bay is one of the defining beaches of Nusa Penida. Beautiful coconut trees lined up along the crescent-shaped beach. The best part is, it is easily accessible by car! “Be sure to check out the hidden cliffs on both ends of the beach”, says Krishna from Mottomo Photography.

5. Bukit Teletubbies

These hills’s name is inspired from the popular children’s TV Show Teletubbies. “I would highly recommend this location. A good timing for the photoshoot would be in the morning, during sunrise”, said Bayu from Punyan Photography.
