A wedding is certainly an important event in our lives. Not just for the bride and the groom but their families, friends, and all those who helped to make the day memorable. A wedding is not just about the Sangeet or the Mehendi function or the bachelor (or bachelorette) party or the D day itself! It is about every intricate details that the groom and bride and the friends and family who have carefully put together to make this day the most important day of our lives. So, where does a photographer like FotoZone fit in this scheme of things?
As professional wedding photographers, we have ensured that we captured these moments of great significance as a frame and gift them back to you as your wedding album – an event that marks a very important bond in your lives; the arrival of your spouse, your life partner, your ‘other you.’
Post-wedding photography is as important as capturing the pre-wedding or even the wedding per se. Why? Because the couple surely deserves a break and the only way they can gift themselves some luxury is by capturing the first few moments as a married couple.
How do we make the most of it as a photographer?
Get the classical shots | There are some classic shots that should never be missed. Although marked as cliche, a photograph with the board/note ‘just married’ is a must in your album. Let’s say its tradition to do so. Another classical photograph that deserves a space in your album is the photograph of thali (marriage ceremonial thread) on the bride’s neck or the wedding ring. In your pre-wedding shoot, this would be shot separately – just as an object but now as a wedded couple, the thali or the wedding ring has a different implication altogether. Other classical shots include the groom carrying the bride and never letting her touch the ground. In this idea, the trick is to select different backgrounds (or locations) which signifies that the groom cannot let go of his new bride. Above all, what adds strong emotions would be the photographs of respective parents and as a thumb rule – never forget to photograph friends.
The first week of life together | There is always some rough patch in the first few weeks of marriage. The couple is just getting used to the newly found life and adjusting to the others who come from a different background takes time indeed. Simple aspects like, what does he like to eat, will she be upset if I delay cleaning this room today, etc., can be beautifully captured as photographs – pretty much life in a day of ‘just married’ couple. It is these silly follies that end up being the perfect candid frame.
Capturing young romance | Young love is always beautiful to watch. The coyness in each other face, whether it is an arranged marriage or a love marriage gives away the freshness or the newness of the marriage. Capturing these moments is inevitable.
As a post-wedding photography expert, we ensure that we never miss these moments. we let the couple visit places that they are comfortable exploring. We are fully geared up in terms of camera, lens and other accessories and we station ourselves far enough so that the couple doesn’t pay attention to us. All they have to do it by themselves and we just capture away ‘young romance’ as frames.
Frames that will be carried for decades – tales of love. Imagine waking up every day to a frame like that next to you.
