An often forgotten but an important thing you should consider is the time of sunset and some cases sunrise. If you are from a tropical country like India,Sri Lanka,Indonesia,Brazil, then this is not a problem. Those countries are close to the equator and sunrise and sunset is same time everyday. But if you are from a country like Canada, England, Sweden or Australia, then you should be knowledgeable about sunset times so you can plan your photo sessions at a proper time. You can always settle for indoor pictures in a studio but on this special occasion it is a good idea to have some pictures taken with some scenery as a nice background.
Another important thins is picking locations beforehand. There might be some places which are special to you and you want your picture taken there. But if you are stuck for locations then it is advisable to contact your wedding photographer. They have done this before and they can suggest you few places to check out. If you have the time then try to visit the places and pick a place more to your liking. Remember that there are no repeats for this, so time spent on finding a suitable place is time well spent.
