What I have in mind for a “travel theme” engagement (prenup) shoot is a bit different since most people would usually associate this with airports, train stations, luggage and vehicles. For me, Window of the World is the first place that comes to mind when I think about a travel theme shoot. It’s a place in Shenzhen, China which is very similar to ‘Nayong Pilipino’ (now closed, unfortunately) except that it showcases different sites all over the world instead of just the Philippines.
The place has miniature replicas of famous places like the opera house at Sydney, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Taj Mahal, etc. In addition to this, they also have smaller versions of sites like the Eiffel Tower (1/3 of the original), Louvre (outside the actual park), Pyramids of Egypt, Niagara Falls, etc. I really LOVED looking around and taking photos. It’s like being able to travel the world in just a few hours.
For a shoot, you will have all these amazing replicas of famous sites in the world available to play around with. What more could be a better place to have a travel theme shoot, right? You can have different themes in just one location. Be in Asia one minute and then Europe the next. Thinking about the things you could do here really makes me want to go back and have a shoot. I’m surprised that I haven’t seen anyone (online) do this before. It might be a bit of a challenge though if there are a lot of people around. 😛
My family and I went here a few years back for our first ever family trip and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, since it was a packaged trip, we didn’t get to spend a lot of time here to explore which is why I want to go back.
Here are touristy photos of us (years ago) and some photos I found online (first 6 photos) for you to have some idea of what Window of the World is like.
