Pre Wedding Theme Inspiration

If you see a beaming couple, pulling each other near Gateway of India or animatedly enacting a proposal in a heritage fort, do not mistake it for a movie poster shoot. In the run up to the wedding, couples are letting their hair down for pre wedding shoots, which are now a serious business. Showcasing the work of 5 fine contemporary photographers and their theme based couple shoots.

Theme ‘Mumbai’
by Romesh Dhamija
Anooj and Ashwini’s pre-wedding shoot took place@ all the famous landmarks in South Mumbai. Says Romesh, “Anooj and Ashwini are based in Canada. They wanted to capture the essence of South Mumbai in their pre-wedding shoot so keeping the theme in mind I shot with the couple at places like Gateway of India, Leopold Café (Colaba Causeway) and Kala ghoda.”

Theme ‘By the Beach’

Theme ‘Chennai love story’
by Amar Ramesh
Amar Ramesh says: “Vinod and Shrividya have been in love for more than 7 years and have spent all that time in Chennai. So through their pre-wedding shoot, I tried to recreate the magic of those beautiful years they spent in the city. What was specially fun was capturing them at spots which they then frequented to avoid bumping into people they know.”

Theme ‘Nizami Architecture’
by Rushikesh Tambe
Rushikesh says, “Harini is from Hyderbad and Karthik grew up in US with roots in the Nizami city. Both wanted their pre-wedding shoot to happen in Hyderabad as they can relate to the city. The idea behind the shoot was to entwine their love story with the grandeur of Nizami architecture.”

    Pre-wed photography is catching up very fast in India. Thanks to the internet and FB. The romance that can be captured during these moments are priceless. Most of the times these are posed and directed by the photographer. As a photographer one has to have a great rapport with the couple before taking these pictures. At the same time, depending on the couples’ looks, figures poses should be directed understanding the chemistry between the couples. Things become much easier for couples in love for quite some time. It’s a tough job. It’s more about how a photographer can break the ice between the couple within themselves as well as making them do what they want to do — ie, extracting the real emotions — in front of camera. Apart from controlling the camera, lights and apertures, the photographer should be able to control the situation in such a manner that he can capture the precious moments.
