In Turkey is the beautiful province of Antalya – an ancient living city whose rich past seamlessly blends with stylish modernity. Sneha had her heart set on Antalya from her first visit there and wanted to take a piece away with her in pictures that would last forever.
With Luv Israni of Israni Photography on her team, she and her fiancé Kunal created some beautiful frames in a spellbinding location.
How We Met
Karan and I went to different colleges but we met through our large, intersecting circle of friends. When we were hanging out, he was often in the group and that’s how we got to know each other and fell in love.
We started dating and were in a relationship for 7 years before we decided to get married. There was no formal proposal (much to my dismay) but I still get to spend the rest of my life with the man of my dreams!
Pre Wedding Photoshoot
The planning of the shoot didn’t take a lot of time. I’d been to Antalya before and love the city. When we met Luv, we told him about it and that was that. On a trip there at Christmas, I visited Land of Legends, a theme park and thought it was absolutely beautiful. Everyone agreed, and we headed there to click some beautiful photographs.
We conceptualized four looks that created four vastly different moods.
We began with a very casual feel. I wore a short dress with boots. Then we had some high-fashion moments where I wore a black dress with intricate red embroidery. Naturally, I wanted a fairytale storyboard as well so I wore a black dress with a train. And there were some pictures with family members as well and for these we all wore white as the color represents peace and purity; pictures that mark a new beginning.
We have known Luv for a while so for us, it was like shooting with a friend. He made our day so much fun and the comfort level we had with him was just something else. Kunal and I were at ease and that’s brought our love and chemistry out in the pictures. His team was amazing. They helped us with our poses and it was great to work with all of them. The entire experience was very special and we had a really nice time together.
