A WEDDING LIKE NO OTHER

One fine day I get a very sweet mail request from this boy for couple portraits. And we go back and forth on it but the schedules don’t match and a lot other things and it finally didn’t work out.
Fast forward to last month ( one year later ). I get another mail from the same boy asking if I would be available to document their wedding.
It is nothing but humbling when people world over connect to you because they like your work and keep coming back!
 It is a wedding like no other because the couple is so effervescent and full of life and it was such an unusually beautiful wedding day for me.

Showcasing Part I

Location : Lakme Salon, Andheri

This is the second court wedding that I have shot. And the spaces are quite interesting, edgy but make a beautiful backdrop.

The long wait at Bandra Court.

Shohini, she is my favourite bridesmaid I have ever met!  She also did an impromptu performance by singing Ambarsariya for us and also got an applause from the people at the restaurant : )

And I can’t wait to shoot the part II of their wedding. And I am meeting none other than Kismet, woohoo!

On another note, two weddings amidst the hills and I am excited!

Love!

NISHA & VINAYAK

Nisha and Vinayak were getting married in Delhi after their Civil ceremony in London. I second shot this wedding with Ram of RAM BALMUR PHOTOGRAPHY  . It was a lovely ceremony spanned across four days in Delhi.

SHAHANA & SHAHRUKH

Shahana & Shahrukh were getting married after a long courtship and I second-shot for this wedding. Shahana & Sharukh are really lovely quiet and private people and so was their wedding.

Very lovely, intimate affair for two days. We started with Shahana’s mehendi.

For those who are wondering what does Nido mean, Nido ~ A term used to describe an exciting situation. Can portray a feeling of  awesomeness.

MAYURI & KIRAN

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.

MAGICAL CHICKOO BAUG

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.

MAYURI : Portraits on Espousal Day, Mumbai. 2013

A few portraits from an espousal in Mumbai.

The light was a bit less and I could only see black and white images. Most of the images from this day barring a few are black and white and I am glad the couple liked them !

WordPress and Facebook are eating on the sharpness and I am not too happy about it. Perhaps that’s because I usually post from phone.

Anyway, wishing Mayuri & Kiran the very best !

BRIDAL PORTRAITS, ROHINI

Rohini,  a  very old and dear friend was getting engaged and asked if I could take some pictures for her personal collection.

I am the happiest when a couple wants some pictures just for them. There were other host of photographers for the event but I was very happy with the job given to me, just some private pictures of the family.

The event was a very small, intimate family affair with just the close friends and family in attendance. I am particularly fond of South-Indian weddings, the old ladies are so adorable there.
