Ginika and Nishank approached us with the idea of doing a pre-wedding shoot in Goa. Ginika was a flight attendant and Nishank was commissioned with the Indian Navy. The couple also wanted us to shoot a few pictures in their duty uniforms and we were happy to oblige. We shot them in uniforms with an ‘Air and Water’ theme, using the two elements that represented their professions. The tranquil beaches of Goa was the perfect setting for this. After finishing this leg of the shoot, we had a lot of fun shooting with the couple at different locations in Goa.
Once we were back in Mumbai, the couple wanted a few pictures together in Nishank’s ceremonial uniform. We decided to schedule it one morning at the Gateway of India. We felt that the iconic backdrop would lend a timeless appeal to the couple’s formal attire. It turned out to be a lucky day for us as the usually crowded monument was surprisingly empty. We quickly took a few shots and wrapped up the shoot before our luck ran out.
