9 Photos You Should Take On Your Honeymoon

Do you really want your honeymoon photos to look like a bunch of scenery and awkward single shots? Of course not. Fill out your album with these must-haves.
  1. The "Sunset" Shot

    It doesn't necessarily have to be a cheesy kissing pic with the sun setting behind you (although we wouldn't judge you for that), but a nice couple shot will be something you'll be glad you have postvacation. And even though it's bright out, you should still use your flash to avoid showing up as a dark silhouette.
    Who Should Take It: A resort employee if you're on the beach, or a passerby if you're in town
  2. The "Look What We Ate" Shot

    Whip out the camera at a local restaurant and snap a picture of your dish -- whether it's an eight-pound lobster, frog legs or a part of a cow you never thought you'd see.
    Who Should Take It: You, of each other; or a restaurant employee

  3. The "Where We Slept" Shot

    You might want to leave this one out of your Facebook photo album, but a photo of your hotel room is a must-have -- you know, for memory's sake.
    Who Should Take It: You, of each other
  4. The "Local" Shot

    Don't forget to snap shots of all the little details that show local flair -- coins, stamps or maps. Even get to know the natives by asking them to pose with you for a quick pic. Policemen, snake charmers, the guy who baked the most delicious souffle you've ever tasted -- they're all fair game.
    Who Should Take It: You, of the details; or other locals or resort employees, if you're with natives
  5. Your "Postcard" Shot

    Who Should Take It: Locals or fellow tourists
