4:30 am and the alarm rings… Our couple jumped out of bed to get ready for their couple photo session way up north, in a little village in Vasai, on the outskirts of Mumbai. We met up at a police chowki (police outpost) and headed down the narrow lanes of Bhuigaon Village. Driving through this beautiful village with tiny houses and some not so tiny houses, green fields and plantations, we finally reached our location near the beach. Vegetable plantations, pine trees, farmers piking their crop, the cold whether and dew drops, made for a very beautiful early morning to shoot this beautiful couple.
Chris and Shekhar, full of life and energy and always smiling… However, Shekhar’s smiles turned into immense joy, when, he discovered that the plantation we were shooting in, was of his favorite vegetable (gawar in hindi ) in the whole world. There was no wiping out the smile and joy on his face. Too bad for Chris… She felt like the outsider in the relationship, with the vegetable taking most of her due attention away. It was fun to see the love for vegetable, so much so, Shekhar even went up to the farmer, and bought well over a kilo of it.
Its safe to say that the day went extremely well for Shekhar who killed two birds with one stone. Had a romantic couple shoot with not only his bride to be, but with his favorite vegetable and sorted out his lunch for the day.
The shoot on the other hand, well, the pictures will tell the story.
We cannot wait to shoot this fun couple, in a couple of weeks.
