1. A Sky Full of Blossoms

The endless trails of cherry blossom trees in full bloom are definitely every photographer’s dream. When captured at the right angle, the beautiful blush-tinted blooms fill up the entire space in the background and makes it look like you are in a cherry blossom paradise!

Photo Tip: Search for cherry blossom trees that are denser to paint the picture of the blossoms filling up the sky behind. Consider taking the photo from a lower angle to create the illusion.

2. Blossom Bokeh

Bokeh is the aesthetic quality of a blur created by the camera lens when it is out-of-focus for certain parts of the image. By making use of certain low-lying blossoms, you can create a bokeh effect to make your picture look even more dreamy.

Photo Tip: Use manual focus when shooting to experiment with the focus. Vary the position of the subject such that the bokeh effect is created at the sides, corners, or even around the centres.

3. Flaunt That Dress

If this is for your pre-wedding photoshoot, you would have probably gone through much effort to find the gorgeous bridal gown that accentuates your figure and makes you look even more stunning. So, you should definitely flaunt the dress that you would most probably never see again!

Photo Tip: Portrait layout is best to show off the long trail of your bridal gown. Consider using your side or back profile to further elongate your lines to give you a few extra inches of height!

4. Romance in The Air

What’s a pre-wedding photoshoot without some form of intimacy? Especially under the romantic cherry blossoms, it’s the best place to share your affection for one another – Be it in the form of a hug or a peck on the lips!

Photo Tip: Not everything has to be pose-y. Some of the best moments are caught in your candid moments. Giving your gown a little swirl as you dance around with your partner or even a simple gesture of touching your partner’s face could be captured beautifully.

5. Traditional Costumes

Being in countries like Japan and Korea with rich historical cultures, the experience is not completed without dawning on the local traditional costumes for a photoshoot. From matching pastel coloured hanboks to vibrant floral printed kimonos, these costumes add an elegant touch to the photos and definitely makes the whole experience more authentic and memorable.

Photo Tip: Decide on the overall look of the photos you plan to shoot before choosing your traditional costumes. Kimonos and hanboks with bright colours and accents such as red detailing can help you to stand out as compared to pale and pastel colours such as light pink, which blends in easily with the background.
