Our First wedding of the year!

This year 2019 has statrted on a great note for us! by the first month of January, we shot an engagment ceremony, baby shower, mehendi ceremony, kids portrait session, first birthday and a wedding! That is almost every kind of shoot we do in a year!

We preferred keeping our blog section more content oriented, where we described our experience in weddings, different wedding customs and mostly our own views on how to make weddings more colourful but during the course of writing blogs, we havnet been sharing pictures of complete weddings, Though we have a huge gallery of wedding photography on our pintrest and instagram page, we belive we should be posting more on the topic complete weddings here in our website. We have shared a series of pictures from weddings and other traditioanal events in the past but we havent been doing it on a regular basics, so from now onwards, we will be posting more under the tag “wedding stories” a tag to describe a complete wedding through a series of beautiful pictures.

Riona and Jonathan got married on the first week of January and this is a photo story of the beautiful couple’s big day!

We have said this a hundered times before, the getting ready of the groom is the most underrated event in a wedding, while all the attending goes to the bride when she is getting ready, a proper shot of the groom is a blessing.

We have seen this shot of the bride’s grown over a million times in the magazine, instagram even in movies but we never got a chance to take a picture perfect gown shot! We had to wait to 2019 for a picture perfect dreamy bride’s gown shot.

Our milestones with Pinterest

Pinteresting!

We have been using Pinterest for over 5 years now and its overwhelming to know that all the hard work that you put in to build a brand on social media is highly rewarding, pinterest is something which wedding photographers in Chennai or even in India for that matter, don’t really use to promote their works, our tribe believes in Facebook and Instagram.

Our share in making things viral

If we can claim any of our work has been viral then it should be this one :), our previous experience in anything getting close to viral was this wedding invite video which we did with stop motion effect, it stumbled into Youtube’s recommended videos and till now has close to 6000 views.

Our first maternity photoshoot in Chennai ever, back in 2017. We receive mails regularly whens someone saves our pin and without a doubt this cheese picture from the maternity shoot has been the most saved picture of ours in pinterest. ironically we haven’t done many maternity shoots ever since, until recently. This pi and has been 80,000 views with over 250 saves.
