Planning a wedding can never be an easy task. I think no matter how simple or elaborate it is, the planning is still difficult. I can only imagine how much planning went into Trusha and Mitesh’s wedding. Everything was planned to the Tee. Bhagwan’s were the caterers and co-ordinates of this wedding. And if you have ever been to a wedding with Bhagwan’s you would know that the food and the wedding would be one of a kind. Trusha and Mitesh had huge wedding in Alberton Civic Center the hall was impeccably decorated as when I walked in I barely recognized it. If I had a tip for brides it would be this quote "If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur." this quote is simply perfect as all the service providers from sound, décor to catering were professionals and her wedding went of beautifully without any hitches or complications. Couples often hire people who are not professionals in this line of work and trying to get people to fix someone else’s mess works out far more expensive in the long run. When it comes to weddings most thing are irreparable.
Roheet and Praveshni's wedding took place on a beautiful Benaulim Beach at the Taj Exotica in South Goa, India. Shooting destination weddings has its fair set of challenges but also is the ultimate dream for every wedding photographer. Its challenges being, that there is always the unknown, what gear to pack ( as you don't want to be traveling to heavy as its no joke to lift a heavy bag into the overhead plane cabin) and all the other things like climate, lighting etc...but because we are documentary wedding photographers we have learned to look all these challenges as rather opportunities to create new fresh images. Praveshni and Roheet amazed us by managing to shop for their wedding attire a few days before the wedding in Mumbai and believe me shopping in the hustle and bustle of the city is no easy task. i love that their outfits weren't coordinated and i thought that the color combination of purple and red was so original and different. The best part of this destination wedding for us had to be intimacy of the event.This will be a wedding Mitesh and i will never forget and i sure many off the guests that attended the wedding would say the same.
This mini e-shoot was done just after the formal ceremony. I found this field of yellow flowers as we were driving to the function (pure luck). I was slightly worried that the flowers would be closed by the time we got there later that day as some of these wild
flowers always seem to be open only at midday and I usually end up looking crazy when I take the couple to the spot and they are not anywhere in sight. Luckily when we arrived the flowers were still visible. Doesn’t this shoot look almost like a scene out of the Bollywood movie Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge? For more pictures go to facebook
Tejal and Divya are getting married in December this year. Tejal and Divya decided on a travel themed pilot shoot because Tejal is a Pilot. They come up with the location and I decided that we make it vintage inspired to give the shoot some character. Dressing up is always hardest for the ladies but Divya made it look effortless, as for Tejal it was simple enough to get into his uniform. The best part of the shoot was that we were able to put our lovely couple in one of the wings of a huge SAA plane. Thank you Divya and Tejal for a truly amazing shoot.
Shoot anything in India is always such a pleasure especially with Destination Indian wedding photography being our line of work. Every corner and ally presents a new photo opportunity. It really is a photographer dream. The gateway of India is a popular landmark in India. I remember it faintly from a family trip we took to India 8years ago. Faintly, because we were moody
teenagers at the time who refused to get out of the car and only saw it through a car window in between a sleep. Thou times have changed since then and even thou sleeping is still my absolute favourite pass time, I tend to see far more of the places I visit and now hate being hotel bound.
Visiting India presents its own challenges but visiting India during monsoon season presents an entirely different set of challenges. For this shoot monsoon season is probably the best time to shoot at the Gateway. Rainy weather means that it won’t be as crowed, partially cloudy skies take the focus of all the people in the background and the best thing of all, we get awesome reflections. This was a fun afternoon shoot with lots on puddles and soaked Shoes. Enjoy the pictures and don’t forget to like us on Facebook
