A NEW ADDRESS

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 : )

Serendipity by Anushree Gavas

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 : )

BLACK AND WHITE

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.

shimla timesDaisy 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 !

kismet

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.

Mehlum

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!

FROM FARAWAY LANDS

It’s quite thrilling that people look at your work and appreciate and want you to be documenting their special day. And all of this is even more exciting when the couple is from faraway lands : ) I really did not presume the reachability of my blog : )

Jay & Arati were quite sweet in asking if I could be there for their wedding day. But as that was not possible we just decided to meet when they were going to be in Bombay.

We met and took some pictures !

I will shoot only black and white images at any given opportunity and here it was !

Jay & Arati got married last week so wishing them a wonderful togetherness !

Love !

LOVE IS FOUND

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.

BRIGHTER THAN SUNSHINE

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 !

HAPPY LITTLE BOY

Nishka found my blog as she herself is regular at blogging scene. She contacted me sometime back when she was in Dubai.

After months of keeping in touch and going to and fro on dates we finally freezed on Anay’s birthday for the family session. And luckily they were going to be in Bombay then!

Anay has the most charming smile I have seen, isn’t he a darling!

Windows happen to be my favourite spot to shoot! Since I am not too fond of artificial lighting, I make best use of the gorgeous big window lights!

I wish Anay and his family a lifetime of happy smiles!
And stay tuned for some more family sessions + gorgeous couples on the blog!

Love!

COFFEE & SEA SALT

Coffee happens to be husband’s favourite so much so that he woke me up one fine morning at 7am and asked me out for a coffee date. As happy as I was then, I decided to make full use of this opportunity and take some pictures of rarely sighted Mr. Husband!
