Candid wedding photography is all about capturing beautiful moments when you’re off-guard. Be it your playful smile or the funky glance you are giving your best friend, when caught through the lens of a skilled photographer, it becomes a masterpiece. Such masterpieces are rare to accomplish, so you need to keep in mind some particular questions before you finalise one. Here, we have curated a handful of those to show you the magnificence of such unbridled shots.

1. Pre-wedding

Pre-wedding photography is synonymous with candid wedding photography. It is because of the images clicked that showcase how comfortable you can be around each other and also due to similar pricing. Candid photography works best for couples who are not comfortable around cameras.

2. Mehndi

Mehndi pictures are the best because most of them are candid photography shots. When everyone around is having fun, the pictures reflect it. So go ahead and plan dance performances on Mehndi songs and go crazy with your group of cousins and friends.

This is one of those rare gems every girl dreams of having when she begins her wedding festivities. A little warm and fuzzy feeling of being close to your pillar of strength - your mom. And you can always amp up your overall look by putting on a pair of cool shades and voila you're a trendsetter bride!
