We covered their Prewedding photos in the previous blog. This time around, we are back with the main wedding ceremony photos of The Mr. and Mrs. - Shashwata and Chetan. Two days of celebrations. Nothing over the top. Rather, a very subtle and warm family affair is how we can describe their wedding. Have a look. We feel you will agree. Oh! In case you haven't checked our the prewedding photos, the link is this. The wedding was designed and planned by the lovely peeps at Desert
A wedding is a once in a lifetime occassion. It is also perhaps THE MOST important occassion in one's life. That is the reason why you put in the effort to check out the work of several photographers, talk to them, check out their packages and finally entrust one person or one team to document this memorable day for you. There are several deciding factors that narrows down the selection. The two most important ones that almost everyone bases their decision on are the portfoli
We arrived at Kovalam, sometime about 8 months earlier for Ashmita and Jeet's Wedding. It was one of those weddings where team-members flew in from different places across the country. I flew in from Goa, Sudhanshu from Jaipur, Lovely and Siddhesh from Mumbai, Purushottam from Delhi and Sinto and his team from Cochin. Logistics was a crazy nightmare for this wedding with flights at odd hours and people arriving across different dates and times. However, thanks to the understa
Kritika and Vivek got married in Jammu. We travelled a day before the main events for their Pre-Wedding shoot. When we eventually got to start the shoot it was past noon and Kritika had to be back home for a small ritual before sunset. So, we did not actually have much time. What was good was that the location we had selected was almost a forest and that provided us with patches of light and shadow. While wandering around in the location, we came across this nice red empty bu
Feminism! Shweta and I have discussed at times what it should mean and stand for. It could be a bit difficult to write about Feminism, being a man. There are countless problems and situations and inequalities women across the world have to face on a regular, if not daily basis. Its difficult to fully comprehend all of them without having to ever face them. Its true that these genuine problems need to be addressed and solutions found. When women (and sometimes, men) stand up t
If you have been following our work, you would already be familiar with Pragya and Divyanshu. We had published this small story (link) about them a few days ago.
At times brides and grooms want to keep things simple and do not want a big team to cover their wedding and so was the case with Pragya and Divyanshu. They just want good photographs and videos. I was photographing, and Soumak was on the video. We love such assignments too.
Here are the photos from the weddin
At times, brides and grooms cannot give time for Pre Wedding shoot. Sometimes they also do not want to pose at all. The two combined is not an easy situation for a photographer. Anyushka and Siddhant could give us only about 30 minutes for the Pre-Wedding shoot as they and their immediate family had just checked in and were facing some logistical problem. They had come out of a discussion and were about to go into another meeting to sort it out. And, they did not want to pose
We were having an impromptu discussion with Pragya as she was getting ready.
It was a single videographer assignment with Soumak on the camera. We did not have the luxury of a formal interview setup, and in any case, we have begun to realise that at times impromptu conversations bring out the best in a lot of people and have started to encourage that over formal interviews. Somehow, in the wedding film context, we feel they are more real too - but, then, that's our opinio
While covering weddings, we often come across little things that touch us profoundly. It might be something behind the scene or something that people who we interact with have told us. These little stories have a lot of emotional value but are difficult to express in just photographs. This blog, which we eventually want to expand into a series is our humble attempt at capturing such a story. We were sitting with Anyushka's mom, Mrs.Sangeeta Dhawan the day before the wedding c
|We have covered quite a few weddings in Dehradun by now. In fact, after Delhi NCR, its probably Dehradun where we get to travel the most. All the weddings we have covered so far in Dehradun had one thing common to them. They had a certain level of intimacy and warmth. Each one of them. Irrespective of how big or 'not big' they were. Soumak, recently travelled to Dehradun once again. To cover Arshrika and Ooril's wedding. It was one of those weddings where we spoke to only Ar
Destination Weddings are always exciting to cover. There is often an extra element of beauty and a sense of closely knit charm to them, that makes them attractive to photograph. We don't mean to say that non-destination weddings are not as attractive. In fact, each wedding has its own story to tell which is attractive in its own way. So, what was it about this wedding that we loved - other than the fact that it was a destination wedding? We got to know two individuals who are
Wedding photographers love good locations and it's not very difficult to guess why. Probably the most important reason is that it helps create good backgrounds in photos. With destination weddings in forts, palaces, beaches and exotic hotels becoming increasingly popular as wedding destinations, we are bombarded with beautiful photos shot at lovely locations. Its, but natural that every wedding photographer would love to shoot at these locations. However, there are other aspe
