My wife and I love to travel a lot, 3 years back we decided to get married and take our own pre-wedding photos in different locations around the world. With our tight budget, it is impossible for us to hire a photographer to follow us on our travels. So we decided: why not do it ourselves?

Show Full Text

We bought two sets of wedding gown, my wife, Zhu signed up for makeup lessons to do makeup herself, and I bought a decent camera with a few lenses, and most importantly, a tripod.

It took us 3 years to travel around 5 continents: Asia, North America, Oceania, Europe, and Africa. Most of the photos were taken by using tripod and remote, others were taken with a little help of our travel companions along the journey. Photos were shot on different climate and terrain, we created our albums in exotic Islands, world heritage sites, caves, snow, and dessert, even in the Himalayan mountains.

It's pretty challenging to shoot wedding photos ourselves, and we do encounter some difficulties in some of these locations, but most of the time, it's fun. The result might not be as stunning as hiring a professional photographer, but the process of accomplishing these photos together, just the two of us, made these photos precious and memorable to both of us.

My definition of tight budget is like wedding party at home, not travelling 3 years around the world. Can't hire a photographer for 3 years straight? Poor things..

We were on a tight budget, says the dude who spent three years travelling the world. Excuse me while I weep for your budget constraints.

I would give this 1000 points if I could. This picture is absolutely breathtaking!!! It is not even the scenery, while it is fabulous in and of it's own right, but the way you two are embracing each other holds and shows the power of your love. The second I saw you I literally felt the power and started to cry with happiness. You two are pretty fantastic! Thank you for sharing your love and the power of your bonded souls with us! I wish we could all be so lucky to experience even a sliver of the beauty you two bring to life.
