Into the Light

Lonavla, Pre WeddingLeave a comment

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.

Deep lay in the woods, a vast field atop a hill flushed with unknown paths yet to be taken. Paths where the sun shines on the greens and the browns or the vast horizon above, unequivocally. Swaying with the wind, leaving a trail behind was her infinite veil on these paths which were now being taken. With each step lending a pristine white to the glistening earthen tones around.

A fairy tale in making, is what we aptly call Namrata and Siddharth’s beautiful journey from courtship to their wedding day. We first met Namrata during our Mumbai chapter of Photopedia, where she volunteered to be the official stylist and costume designer for our on-cam bride. What was unique about that photo-shoot was her meticulously designed larger than life infinity gowns. Namrata has her own private label ‘Namzish’, a one-of its kind in India, fabricating surreal Infinity gowns for rent and sale. Call these gowns a photographer’s delight, we became a huge fan of her craft and these endless flowing beauties since that day. So naturally, our excitement knew no bounds when we got a call from her, delivering news of her impending wedding. The stage was set where we were to partner again for photo-shoots, but this time with her on the camera than off it.

First came the pre-wedding, for which we chose a location close to home, the good old romantic neighborhood of Lonavala. Days leading up to this shoot went in discussing details of the three outfits she was designing which she would adorn with her prince charming by her side. A lot of effort, love and her best judgement went into churning out these three stunning masterpieces. And we had to absolutely do justice to all the magnificence we had at our disposal. No doubt that these infinite drapes lends drama and romanticism to the frame but getting the best out of it comes with its own set of challenges. We set out to blend our style of photography with the stunning swirl of her drapes and the beautiful landscape surrounding her. Two exhilarating days, packed with the spell bounding meadows, a boat ride against the backdrop of gateway of India, the Taj, the mesmerizing sunset over the boundless ocean, the intimate confines of the Aamby valley resort and off course with charismatic Siddharth, Namrata and her colossal ensembles.

Namrata and Siddharth, thank you for trusting us with your most treasured memories. We hope we were able to do justice to the effort, glamour and magnetism you two brought with you to the shoot. These photographs are our humble contribution to the bank of happy memories you are going to create together for the rest of your lives.
