Dhanvee & Jay’s Vasai prewedding has a story behind it. When we met them for the first time, Dhanvee showed us a picture of this gorgeous Manish Malhotra gown that she had recently purchased. She had her heart set on wearing it for their pre-wedding shoot. The couple wasn’t sure about a location for the shoot. The couple of things they were sure about were that they wanted a rustic location with a natural appeal. They didn’t want to travel too far from Mumbai. And they wanted a location to compliment Dhanvee’s. That was a challenging combination of demands to say the least!

We set our heads to work and zeroed in on Vasai fort. Having shot there in the past, we were confident that the rugged fort walls would provide the perfect contrast to showcase Dhanvee’s outfit. When we pitched our idea to the couple, they were immediately onboard. On the day of the shoot, we were lucky to be blessed with clear blue skies. The pleasing contrast of colours and the charming settings lent a refreshing quality to our frames. The first leg of their prewedding was shot at the fort. Then we headed to the nearby beach for a few beach shots. Since the couple was enthusiastic, we tried some light-painting shots which gave a magical ending to the shoot.
