Hi Guys !
It’s been quite a lull around here for past few months. But I promise this post comes with a good news : )
Serendipity has moved to a new address. It’s more personal and so much more for you and not just photos. However, I love WordPress and my blog here (since it’s my first home on the web) so I will keep this space for an exciting new personal project in the pipeline : )
So head up to the new place for SERENDIPITY and I would love to hear how do you guys love/not so much love the new look : )
One day I really wish to document a wedding in only black and white and possibly on Ilford : )
But meanwhile here are some other black and white images.
Daisy and Nikhil’s wedding venue, Shimla. February 2015.
And amidst the beautiful Shimla hills I met Kismet of The Unreal Bride
It was rather a beautiful surprise that the couple booked us both seperatly : ) And it was nothing but such a joy working with her. I hope to bump into her more often !
Also met Mehlum on his yet another trip to India. We went wandering about on the streets on Bombay and took these few pictures of him.
These pictures are taken by Nikon 50mm 1.2 which is a manual focus lens. And I am absolutely in love with it !
It was my second time shooting with Nikon and I might just be tipping towards it, just like Ram Balmur who recently switched his whole Canon equipment to Nikon. I think I will follow suit sometime : ) Though I still have to do my homework for it.
We met again at Banganga and here is the set of images he took of me on his Tumblr page.
I haven’t been posting much of wedding work here but I am behind editing 8 weddings and so many many more updates.
Next post will be a glimpse of the beautiful couples I got to meet.
Also I have been working on a brand ideology for “Serendipity” and also possibly a new look for the blog. But I am too attached to the current layout so you guys can help me make a decision.
Till then, love!
This effervescent bride got in touch just a week before her ceremony and I am so glad I could make it. This would be my first time shooting in Amravati.
Amravati is the hometown of number of politicians including our ex-president Pratibha Patil. Being a Political Science student I am always interested in visiting/discussing political scenarios around the state.
Here are a few photographs from their ceremony.
I wish the couple beautiful days ahead !
I need to confess that I honestly did nothing in this photo-session. But just got lucky by being there and witnessing this utterly gorgeous family!
We took a few pictures in the nearby garden and thought of resting a little bit and return back in sometime. I went up to their house and the light was so so beautiful that I thought of continuing the photo-session.
This happens to be my favourite picture of the little boy and his mother! And it had to be in black and white !
These two make for a gorgeous looking couple!
and so much in love : )
I love being in love and photographing people in love !
It was a beautiful ride back home from shoot and it had just showered in the city and the air was nice and cool. It was High tide at the sea and I could see the water splashing up on the road and the sea-link looked beautiful.
It was quite not possible to not take a picture. Following are the pictures from midnight ride back home.
Bandra-Worli Sea Link is officially called Rajiv Gandhi Sea Link that links Bandra (Western Suburbs) to Worli (South Mumbai).
A bit of more information can be read at Wikipedia.
I do plan to go out more this Monsoon and take pictures around the city. Bombay is quite enchanting during the Monsoons.
I was excited to take pictures at Mayuri & Kiran’s wedding after I had shot their engagement. Mayuri was having a very different Haldi ceremony where she was going to get dressed appropriate for the day. And I was all excited!
Following are the pictures for Mayuri’s Haldi ceremony and the wedding day.
The Wedding Day
I wish the couple very best that the life has to offer!
Shraddha a friend and a super talented photographer contacted me via Facebook to take some pictures for her sister’s wedding. The brief was very simple, documenting the wedding and looking for pictures that normally photographers miss. The wedding was a four day long event with very interesting line-up.
Day 1: Rehersal dinner at the Chickoo Baug. This is the part that I was very excited about and very nervous too. Excited because the rehearsal dinner was hosted at 50yrs old Chickoo Baug with lush thick trees. And nervous because of the light but it ended up being the most magical evening I have witnessed.
Day 2 : Mehendi & Cocktail Party
Day 3 : The Wedding day.
Some portraits from the wedding day.
Day 4 : Documenting the Uday Baug farm.
Very magical four days documenting the bliss and love within the family and how much the farm means to them. I had such a beautiful time.
Thank you !
