Brinda and Neel’s pre-wedding photo shoot was ambitious in scale as the couple posed in Abu Dhabi, Turkey, and the US to produce a collection of surreal and stunning shots.
Brinda and Neel’s pre-wedding photo shoot was an elaborate affair that incorporated historic sites in Turkey stunning natural backdrops in the US and luxurious locales in UAE. WeddingSutra Favorite 35mm Candids drew inspiration from the unique venues and the couple’s chemistry to create an amazing compilation of unforgettable memories.
The preliminary prep for the pre-wedding shoot began after wedding planner, Aanand Dawda from Events N More saw Brinda’s cousin’s wedding as an opportunity for the couple to spend some hours away from the wedding party to create special memories together via a pre-wedding shoot. After researching about Turkey, 35mm Candids’ team chose the prominent ancient Greco-Roman city of Aspendos as the first location for the shoot. The historic significance of the place is reflected in the striking shots clicked there. The couple wore color-coordinated outfits which paired well with the overall vibe of this shoot. The second half of the day was utilized in capturing idyllic low-lit shots in a small town.
The US was chosen as the next leg of the pre-wedding photo shoot. It was an impromptu inclusion when Neel shared his plans about attending a friend’s wedding there. Brinda’s face instantly lit up as she shared her desire to have photos clicked at certain locations there such as the Antelope Canyon in Arizona. The earthy browns of the hollows offered a dramatic backdrop for the images. The second location was the Horseshoe Bend. The horseshoe-shaped incised meander of the Colorado River attracts travel-enthusiasts from around the world. The 35mm Candids teams used the stark backdrops, sun’s rays, silhouettes and grooves of the mountains to click surreal photos that are full of character and natural drama.
The last stop for the photo shoot was Abu Dhabi. The couple and the team of photographers were equally excited to shoot at the luxurious Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi. Being the third most expensive hotels in the world, the venue promised opulence, gorgeous interiors and awe-inspiring views from every angle. Brinda and Neel looked no less than royalty in their ensembles, especially when she donned a fiery red gown. The stark contrast of the glittering indoors and the wilderness of the outdoors added a beguiling effect to the images. The sweethearts spent a part of the evening in the vast desert as their silhouettes played the perfect muse to the camera.
