Chinese wedding pictures are a must for nearly all Chinese weddings. Chinese wedding photos (婚紗, hūnshā) are one of the most important aspects of a Chinese wedding. The top place for Chinese wedding pictures is Taiwan with couples from all over the world flocking to the island for Chinese wedding pictures.

Since there is not typically a wedding party of bridesmaids and groomsmen in a Chinese wedding, the bride and groom do their photos days or weeks before their wedding day. The glamour shots are taken at historic sites, beaches, parks and other picturesque spots. The Chinese wedding pictures feature the bride and groom in a variety of settings – some real and some fairytale.

The bride and groom wear many outfits – from casual to formal and even fantasy costumes - in their Chinese wedding pictures. The photo shoots can last all day or even more than a day with the Chinese wedding pictures costing thousands of dollars.
