Akanksha & Rohan : Engagement at Tote on the Turf
Its said that with an engagement begins an eternal love story, and so it happened for Akanksha & Rohan.
Akanksha & Rohan got ready at Four Seasons, Mumbai. They made some time for some beautiful portraits. And later on the party shifted to Tote on the Turf. The venue was lit with lights and amazing decor. And in the most grand way, Akanksha & Rohan made their entry and their friends and familes cheered for them. Soon, it was followed by ring exchange and cake cutting. Thereafter, the party went on till the wee hours of the night. And we stuck around till the end to document some beautiful performances of the couple and their family and friends.
Thank you Akanksha & Rohan to get us on board for capturing this special day and making us a part of the happiness!
Miloni & Raj : Engagement in Mumbai
Its said that with an engagement begins an eternal love story, and so it happened for Miloni & Raj, earlier this month. And we wont say anything much because the photographs are all self-explanatory. By the end of it, we are sure you will have a hard time in believing that they are having an arranged marriage. Yes, Just like we did!
What strikes out is how the event was beautifully planned and organised by the Modi-Shah families. A special couple entry, amazing games, performances and uninterrupted fun were ensured to make sure that everyone is in awe throughout the evening. Miloni looked every bit of a stunner in her yellow lehenga pairing with a smile. This is one of the best engagement shoots we have done so far, and the here goes the photographs from that eventful day.
Thank you Miloni & Raj, you guys are just awesome! Special thanks to Meera (Miloni’s sister-in-law & a dear friend) to get us on board for capturing this special day and making us a part of the happiness! This shoot was led by our lead photographers Anupam & Prasad
Surabhi & Prashant: Bihari-UP wedding, Nagpur
Surabhi is Shwetabh’s sister who is my junior from Photography Club at BITS Pilani and having recently joined our team the responsibility of her wedding photography naturally came to us. As I was shooting a batch mate’s wedding from college in Puri along with Winston, Ajinkya and Omkar, Sunny and Prasad traveled to Nagpur to capture this simple and beautiful wedding. Having recently acquired entire set of new Nikon gear and Sigma Art series lenses, Prasad was particularly excited to rough them out. Surabhi is a chemical researcher in Nagpur while Prashant works in Germany as a software engineer. Their pre wedding celebrations viz. Haldi, Engagement and Mehandi happened at their bunglow whereas the wedding took place at ‘Lamba Celebrations Banquet‘ in Nagpur.
The wedding festivities lasted a full three day starting with Engagement and culminating with bride leaving her house to a new home. After exchanging rings Prasad and Sunny took the couple around the neighborhood for a photo-shoot though it was already dark and boy they managed some great photos despite it being dark. Surabhi’s hadi was more like Holi with turmeric which didn’t even spare Prasad and Sunny. They swore to not wear good clothes to a Haldi ever. I could understand the true extent of their temperament only when I saw the photographs, despite covering more than 30 weddings we still get surprised by the diversity of the customs and traditions in India and how all that plays at its best in any Indian wedding. Weddings are truly the highlight and summary of the rich variety of our traditions.
On the day of the wedding Prashant made his entry in a car adorned with flowers and the whole baraat where people danced with rapture to their hearts content. The wedding went through the entire night after and by the time Prasad and Sunny came out shooting the Bidaai they realized it was already morning!
I loved the images from this wedding, I could see the entire story of the unfolding through them and it looks so beautiful, that I feel is the true test of good photography, to be able to live a moment through photographs. This wedding shoot was led by Prasad Patil.
Saahil & Shivani : Engagement in Mumbai
Wedding is a celebration that brings together the dearest of one’s relations with a reason to rejoice the new bond between two people. In the Indian culture these reasons are multiplied by having several facets to them. Engagement being the smaller promise to commit with each other for a lifetime, is the first of the many days of excitement to wedding. Photographing an engagement, which is more personal, has its own charm. Especially when the family is known and the environment is so humble. After shooting Nishita’s Tulsi Vivaah it was more exciting to photograph his brother Saahil’s engagement with the gorgeous to-be bride, Shivani. The engagement happened in a Lakshmi Narayan temple in Vile Parle. Just like a snapshot from a fairytale, Saahil went down on his keens to propose Shivani. The two began their journey towards a new life with the blessings of their family and friends. The wide smiles and vibrant joy on everyone’s faces, lit up the engagement day, blessing Saahil and Shivani the best to come!
