Aditi and Gauravhad a post-wedding shoot in Dubai. Most people would say Dubai is known for its wealth, skyscrapers, luxury shopping, glitzy nightlife, and white-clad Arabs driving expensive cars on desert roads. Dubai during the night is beautiful with the skyscrapers glowing in the dark and the dancing rain fountains captivating everyone’s attention. We made use of the brilliant scenery in our photos. We have a blast photographing this couple!
Amsterdam is known for its beautiful canals, quirky architecture, and lively nightlife. Most Couples opt for Pre Wedding Shoots butMrinal and Puja chose the alternate route and decided on a photo shoot after the wedding festivities so they could enjoy and relax in the streets of Amsterdam.
It’s also a great place to find Dutch art and culture. It is sometimes referred to as the “Venice of the North” due to the vast number of canals. It is colloquially referred to as the world’s capital of bicycles. Anybody who has ever tried to make their way through the city centre of Amsterdam will tell you how painful it can get.
We did our best to capture the essence of this beautiful city in these photographs from the cobbled streets, and beautiful architectural houses to the number of canals.
By doing a photography session after your wedding, there is a freedom of locations, with as much time as you need. If you had to compromise on the site of your Wedding then this is your chance to have the backdrop of your dreams, from the beach to the forest, to wherever your imagination might take you.
Love is very fragile & light. It follows unimaginable musings, fleeting moments & turns all happiness into endless smiles.
On the evening, before their wedding festivities began, Sai & Trupti took out some time to make some timeless couple portraits in Goa. And when nature & love works together, magic happens. It was surreal throughout, as dark clouds gathered giving a whole new colour to the sky. The cliffs & palm trees too were swooning in bliss. Trupti wore a yellow gown & that stood apart in adding more charm to the shoot. And all the while, Trupti & Sai silently celebrated their new journey together & the happiness of being with each other.
We always wanted to do a pre-wedding shoot in Hampi, one of the best locations for pre-wedding in India, undoubtedly. This was our second outing with Sachin & Neeraja, post covering their engagement in July last year. And one day at a meeting in our office, we brainstormed together and decided to shoot their pre wedding at Hampi. It was a unanimous decision, and all of us were thrilled and waited eagerly for the shoot.
Sachin is a lawyer and Neeraja is a dentist by profession. Sachin & Neeraja are the classic case of how “opposites attract each other”. Its an arranged love story, that they call it. But once you meet them, you will feel that they know each other since ages. Their love, chemistry & joys in enjoying little moments and taking turns to tease each other are something which makes their relationship more special & unique. And naturally, we were thrilled to be on-board the second time for their pre-wedding shoot in Hampi.
So, we were all set. We left the next day after Diwali last year, 8th Nov, 2018. Little did we know we were up on an adventure that we would not forget the rest of our lives. The plan was to travel Hampi via road. We got the delivery of our new car Tata Nexon on the day of Diwali. And Anupam was really thrilled to take it out the next day. We were set to cover a distance of 730 km in 13 hrs. Sachin & Neeraja also joined us on road, in their Renault Captur.
Hampi is charismatic even in its ruined state, the beauty lies in the temples, ruins of palaces, remains of aquatic structures, ancient market streets, royal pavilions, bastions, royal platforms, treasury buildings. And when there is an even more charismatic & enthusiastic couple, the joy of shooting is all the more. Together with #saneera & the temples, the ruins & the boulder strewn structures, we made some stunning photographs. And, all the drive and the journey throughout was really worth it!
We shot across multiple locations starting off with Virupaksha Temple in the background at the Hemakutta Group of temple complex. This pretty much took the entire one morning. Thereafter we advanced to structures at Hampi Bazaar opposite the Krishna Temple. In the evening we proceeded to the hill of RaghunathTemple. This has a great view of the sunset and is free of any interruptions and guards. The best part of shooting in Hampi is that one doesn’t really need to shoot at Famous temple but you can always choose a hillock with some ruins around or a hill simply with a good view. The whole landscape is very beautiful with big boulders and small hillocks, lush green fields and the Tungabhadra River flowing across this landscape lending it a scenic charm. On driving back to Mumbai we took a detour to Pattadakal & Badami.
A few things to keep in mind (for the photographers & the couples) if you decide to shoot in Hampi – a. Do take permission from the authorities of the place before planning a shoot in Hampi, b. Carry comfortable shoes as it involves a lot of climbing up and down on the boulder structures. c. Carry hair spray, as it might get too windy to hold your locks in place.

When we were talking with Harsh & Alisha for couple shoot options, we immediately suggested The Machan Treehouse Resort in Lonavala for them. It was a good choice, given how hectic wedding preparations can get, and provided an ideal winding-down opportunity for these two before the wedding actually began! #Win!
And for us, we couldn’t be happier to click some truly epic shots and get mesmerized ourselves as we captured the couple letting themselves loose in the wildlife.
Away from the chaos of civilization, this was a perfect place for a digital detox and solitude, something which we all crave from time to time. We reached Lonavala early in the morning and had the morning mist greet us, adding a hint of romance as well as taking our pictures to a whole new level, giving us all the right #feels
Apart from the Machan, we also took our couple to the peaceful Pavana lake. A stroll around this bounteous water body is plenty for any tired city soul to rejuvenate, as we saw in the case of Harsh and Alisha. We cannot recommend this place to anyone looking for a quick getaway!
Thank you for choosing us Harsh & Alisha, this was great fun 🙂
Pre-wedding shoots are for those who want fun, goofy pictures of togetherness, without the hassles of heavy wedding attires, the umpteen amount of people hanging around you, and the pressure to hurry up and get ready for the next event. Such shoots help in getting to know one another freely.
Nature is truly majestic and when we allow ourselves to truly sink into its beauty, we are awarded spectacular results. And that’s exactly what Sonam and Ankur did on the sandy shores of Dapoli. These lovebirds gave us all the playful shots needed to inspire other couples to go ahead and have a fun photo shoot.
No doubt a few slam dunks into the water had to be endured but it was all worth it… I mean have a look at these shots!
