“Run away from the chaos of the city, and you will find the peace to get lost in one another.” Destination wedding, as exciting as they are for the couple, so are they for a photographer. It makes the love between two people shine brighter and as a photographer it is a greater pleasure to capture such a natural love story. Unhidden smiles, quick time out shots, beautiful sky and loving little family is what sums up Dhaval and Mayuri’s destination wedding at Igatpuri.
The story began in the college days when Dhaval and Mayuri met in Pune as Pharma students. Mayuri, a very chirpy and enthusiastic bride met the rather calm and poised groom, Dhaval, to only discover that, opposites do attract. Their story had many better days to see from there and on 3rd January 2016 they tied the much stronger knot to love each other for a lifelong. The wedding spanned over two days in a resort at Igatpuri following the Marwari traditions. This lively collection of photographs comes from the determination of an enthusiastic bride who missed no chance to pose with her handsome groom and the bright encompassing sky above. In a picture Mayuri has the sword in her hand and the pretentious fear on Dhaval’s face, is just one of the many ways the two showed a great chemistry.
One of the first new thing we did in this wedding was how we took photos of Baraat. As the baraat was in the noon with sun being very harsh with its lights and dark shadows we had to resort to a special of lighting which was required to get better colors in sky and good quality light on face. To fill the darkness in shadows and lit the frame more evenly flash should be used directly mounted on camera. One of the very few occasions when you use a flash directly pointed at subject. But as we had to capture high speed motion of dancing people and too much light we had to use a high shutter speed to be still able to use wide apertures to get the shallow depth of field. We used ND filter to cut the amount of light and then use a flash directly with shutterspeed around sync speed of camera. ( Cameras have sync speed of 1/160 – 1/200th to work with flash )
