A love story that has all the feels right from #bkktoblr. Yes, Jatin & Levina’s story started when they were in high school in Bangkok. They were extremely fond of each other. However, life took over and they moved cities and lost touch for few years. But destiny had already made big plans for them. This time, they met again in Bangalore. And fell for each other head over heels. Things fell in place and they were all set to get married. So, #itsalevstory was set to happen at the gorgeous Renaissance, Powai.
So, it goes out to mention how amazing the wedding was planned. Jatin & Levina were sure about one thing, they wanted their wedding to be close to the nature. And Renaissance Powai, having its proximity to the lake and the swooning greenery made the ideal choice for the big day. Since Jatin was in Bangalore, and Levina in USA, the wedding planning responsibility was given to Shubhi & Amritanshu (Jatin’s sister & brother-in-law). They had just one directive from the couple – to get the best wedding photographers in Mumbai onboard for the wedding. Hence, it was both of them who approached us and very sooner we were all set to shoot Jatin & Levina’s big day. The festivities began with mehendi ceremony which was flavoured with Rajasthani folk dance and Punjabi Dhol in line with the two cultures which united for this wedding – Rajasthani & Punjabi. It was such a joy to witness the happiness around.
The wedding day started with Levina’s getting ready. The wedding was planned beautifully and was a sort of an intimate wedding. Levina looked like a dream in red. Jatin was left totally awestruck as he entered her room and their eyes met. Such a beautiful day it was with so much warmth and positive vibes all around as the friends and family gathered to celebrate the union of Jatin & Levina. Levina walked down the aisle with a gorgeous smile and happiness in her heart, with her sister & friends carrying the phoolon ki doli all the way. Wish time could have stayed still then, but no that would have been unfair to Jatin, who was waiting at the mandap very eagerly for his darling bride. One of the cutest moment to see was how he lent forward, reached out to Levina as she got on the mandap. As their eyes met, she had the brightest smile. This was the moment they waited for so long, and it was finally happening. Glad to have witnessed and also captured the moment. Thereafter, in the beautiful golden hour, Jatin & Levina took their vows and made their promises to be with each other forever and got tied in holi matrimony. The night ended with the reception, which was all about dancing and grooving to music and have all the fun. This wedding is all the more special to us, because of all the love, warmth, support, encouragement, appreciation we received from both the families. So, thank you Jatin, Levina, Shubhi, Amritanshu, Angela and both of the families for making us a part of the two special days! 🙂

Over past 5 years we have covered 250+ weddings, won multiple awards along with featuring in Best Photographers in India lists but nothing has come close to the review that Amritanshu has given us. The review is a blog in itself and perhaps deserves a separate post but for the sake of inclusiveness helping all our future brides and grooms to select their dream wedding photographers in India here is the full text as also mentioned in our Google Review.
“We enlisted the help and services of KnotsbyAMP for the wedding of my brother in-law Jatin and his (now) wife Levina which happened this January at the Renaissance, Mumbai. Before, I move on to the specifics of our review, I would like to summarise by saying that with KnotsbyAMP what one can expect is amazing, elegant, detailed, high on technique, creative and artsy photography; the most vibrant and fun-filled videography and the opportunity to work with a highly dedicated, passionate, professional and trustworthy group of good human beings. I’ll rate them as follows under the following categories out of a maximum rating of 5:

Quality of work delivered: The pictures shared with us are beautifully captured and they brilliantly document the happiness and joy being experienced by the couple on their special day. It is actually like a photo-story. We love the clean elegant frames, the clever angles, the interplay between lights and shadows, the switches between blur and sharpness, and the amazing colour balance and tone of the photographs — all of which is really owing to their masterful application of technique and talent. It is as well very refreshing to see some interesting, intelligent and visually engaging concepts in the work shared with us.
On a more personal note, what makes their work standout is their understanding of the people they are shooting. What impressed me the most is how balanced their work is. It is incredibly difficult to shoot weddings where so many things are happening parallelly. To capture all the fun, the drama, the emotions, one has to be well synced with their team, one needs to have a high level of awareness and be a master of timing, as the real difference between a good photograph and great one is timing, angle and the right frame. With the KnotsbyAMP team led by Anupam Maurya, you will get all of this and much more. More specific to our wedding, team KnotsbyAMP have masterfully framed all the beauty of the bride and groom and all of our family and friends so perfectly retaining all the essence of reality and making it possible for us relive and cherish all the precious moments from our family event — as many times as we want now.
Overall, we couldn’t be any more happier and content with the photos and the teaser video and our family is waiting with eager anticipation for the wedding film. On a concluding note, I must mention that along the way while we prepared for the wedding, we have had the good fortune of meeting some amazing people who have made sure that everything associated with the wedding happened perfectly. KnotsbyAMP are a huge irreplaceable part of that, I would once again like to thank the entire team from the bottom of our hearts for their positive presence, professionalism and for the incredible talent that they brought on board for our event.”
