Everyone knows that feeling when you’re in love and want to shout it out from the rooftops, write it in the sky and tell the whole world! Jaspreet and Ghunjeet wanted to too. Which is why they brought CoolBluez Photography on board to capture their love in pictures they could share so all the people in their world could see the beauty of their love.
Surpreet Kaur from CoolBluez Photography was instantly impressed by the couple. She says, “Jaspreet and Ghunjeet were introduced by their parents just like in any typical arranged marriage set up. Yet, when we met the two, we saw that their chemistry was rather evident and that’s what we wanted to showcase through their pre-wedding photographs”
As they created the concept and theme for the shoot, wanting to focus on the romance, the team was inspired to create the most beautiful pre-wedding video for the couple. “We decided to shoot a video for Vasuda Sharma’s mashup of Enna Sona/Shape Of You featuring Jaspreet and Ghunjeet. The rhythm and melodies were the perfect canvas to build the duo’s story on and it created a wonderful mood for some great slow motion shots,” she says.
It helped that the couple’s enthusiasm for their pre-wedding shoot was unprecedented. Surpreet says, “I have to mention that this was the only bride in recent times who had had loads of outfits made specifically for the pre-wedding shoot! As a photographer, small things like this matter so much as they help you bring variety to the visual series!”
Surpreet elaborates on how every shoot suffers some setbacks and it takes grit and creativity and a never-say-die attitude to make it work. “The first day of our shoot was completely ruined by the rains that were as heavy as a Mumbai monsoon. We did manage to get a few shots on that day but we had to wrap up before getting all the planned pictures. Then things got worse. Jaspreet was unwell for a couple of days after this and with the wedding fast approaching, we were losing hope of doing an additional session.” However, fortune favors the brave and both the couple and photographer managed to work everything around so that they could schedule one more day to shoot. She says, “Just four days before the wedding we spent an entire day shooting and look at the photographs! They’re incredible!”
And much more convenient than shouting from the rooftops too!
