Our First Pre Wedding Shoot

I finally got around to posting pictures of the first pre wedding shoot!

The shoot was done at dusk at Qutub Minar, Delhi. I have to say – the beauty of the stonework really does really jump out at you at this time of the day!

My best friend had flown down from Chicago by this time, and she was with us at the shoot – tourist opportunity for her, and some time together for us!

For the shoot, I wore the anarkali that I had received from my in-laws for karva chauth – and I’m glad I did – I think the pictures do it justice.

Here are some of the pictures from the shoot:

Sharing secrets

ImageWe actually climbed a wall to get this shot… if you can imagine the security guard standing below yelling at us, while the photographer quickly snaps away, you’ll understand why I’m laughing so much

ImageThis was a Kuch Kuch Hota Hai moment


ImageNo – this is way more DDLJ!

ImageThis one hangs on my wall. The formal pose was my idea, and I am glad we did it – the stone background really gives this picture the antique look I wanted.

The shoot itself was so much fun! We giggled our way right through it (and shooed people out the frame every time!)

The pictures played as a slideshow on giant screens at the wedding – and that was the first time I saw them. I remember craning my neck around the aunties to see them… and the memory of this fun day melted my heart!

For us, the pre wedding shoots came smack in the middle of the busiest phase of wedding shopping – there was no way we were able to get away for dates… so it was a great time to breathe, and just pause, and wonder at the fact that we were getting married!!
