We have always loved pre wedding photoshoots. There is so much love around the air and not to forget some of these handpicked locations that make the whole process all the more enjoyable. As experts in prewedding photography, post wedding and couple portraits, FotoZone always ensures to spend enough time understanding the requirements of the couple. We have few rounds of discussion with them and discuss their passion and hobbies, about their love story and figure out the unique aspects about their love story. This process enables us to relate to the couple at a visceral level and this only ends up in a successful photoshoot. In one such instance, we chanced upon this wonderful couple who had a very interesting requirement.
The couple did not want the typical posing photographs and wanted it to be candid in a very unique way. When we suggested some of the best locations around Chennai for a couple outdoor photoshoot, Ms. Mathu, suggested that we do a documentation of their journey of love. The idea immediately got attached to our minds and all we did was listen to their love story at its entire length.
The couple had met in their college (SSN College in OMR) and fell in love. They had their own favourite spots in their college to meet up and Ms. Mathu curiously asked if we could photoshoot in those locations where the couple would usually meet.
We were totally game for it and thanks to the efforts of Ms. Mathu and the college itself, we got permission to do a great photoshoot in the college. We were there in the location as early as 5.30 AM and the couple in all excitement and love showed us their ‘once upon a time meeting spots’.
It was either a canteen or library and the garden area of the college. We were thrilled to document their pre wedding portrait photographs not just because it was exciting but to be able to capture the couple right at the place where they met seemed like a heartening experience. The college as such was indeed a mind-blowing premise and we did fall in love with the campus.
The whole experience has been extremely rewarding and to see the happiness in the couples faces after they saw their images, is indescribable. Hence we have decided to take this as one of our core competencies. We will be extending our services of pre wedding photo shoots to also document the journey of love, thereby making a couples wedding album complete. Besides receiving appreciation from friends and well wishers for this additional service, we have noticed a lot of people taking liking to this idea.
They key to the documentation of journey of love through photographs is to be able to spend a lot of time with the clients, understanding it the depth and spirit that the couple share with us. The rest is left to the imagination and our skill in shooting it right.
