LOVE BY CHANCE – ISHAN & AVANI WEDDING FILM TRAILER

This wedding film was named LOVE BY CHANCE by Avani & Ishan who believed that they can’t find love; love will find them. They proved themselves right because love did find them. They met by chance and fell in love.

This reel was created after doing countless phone calls and meetings. Avani and Ishan were very open to suggestions which is very important to create something unique. It gave us an opportunity to understand their personalities and capture their story.

Wedding Photography + Cinematography are always stressful but with planning and organization by Mayank Amin and team from Platinum Dream Events, the wedding day was flawless.

Urvy + Timmy Wedding Film: Indian Fusion Wedding at Oheka Castle

When all the stars are aligned, things are just perfect. Indian fusion wedding day of Urvy and Timmy can be described in three words: Fun, fun and more fun. All the wedding festivities took place at Oheka Castle Historic Hotel in Long Island, New York; one of my fav venue in East Coast. They celebrated their Mehndi (Henna), Hindu and Christian ceremonies outdoor with their close friends and family with beautiful garden in the background. It was an idle day and location to fly around Drone to get aerial shots.

While editing the film, my priority was to show the merger of two cultures and two families which because one; I believe we were able to achieve that by overlapping vows and hindu slokas with ceremony clips. I was little nervous when I sent final reel to Urvy and Timmy. Within 5 minutes, I got text from Urvy “We LOVE it!!! Both of us cried!!”. I was happy because they cried because that is the only way for me to know that we did good job.

That being said, here is the short film from Urvy and Timmy’s Indian fusion wedding.

Pooja & Dhru Destination Indian Wedding – Belle Mer: Rhode Island Wedding Venues

It was our first time shooting in Newport; what a beautiful location. Who needs Mexico when Newport is only four hour drive from New Jersey. Pooja & Dhru’s wedding took place at Belle Mer which is located on the Goat Island, Newport – RI. It is glamorous and contemporary aura provides the perfect venue for an exquisite oceanside wedding. Blue water, Beautiful day of month of June was perfect for outdoor ceremony and drone shots.

Generally speaking, we get booked in year or two in advance but somehow Pooja & Dhru found us about two months before their wedding day. It was pure luck that the dates were open and we got pleasure of capturing their Sangeet, Vidhi, Wedding & Reception. We all knew that we had very little time to prepare for the wedding but dedication from Pooja & Dhru and long phone conversations made it all possible. Shooting Sangeet and backyard Vidhi was nothing but fun and wedding day went smoothly without any hiccups; just perfect. Thanks to great group of friends and family.

Pre-wedding shoot was hot and sunny. Being on the beach is always fun but not when one is running around with stabilizer unless you have bunch of water bottles. Thanks to Pooja & Dhru for being in the sun for, I believe, 5 hours.

Big THANK YOU to DJ Yogz and his crew from Boston Sound and Light Company. They started the party of which seemed like it never stopped. Never seen dance floor so packed from beginning to the end of the night. Great music, great lighting and great team to work with.

This is the longest highlights we ever created because I had so much GOOD content to work with and so many beautiful moments. My fav is at 7:14 when Pooja’s mother is letting her pallu go during the bidai. Now that I am a father of one daughter, I knew how she was feeling and I was just lucky one to get that shot. Sometimes it is all about being at right place at right time.

 

LOVEFEST: Shuchi + Rohit Wedding Cinematography

Working with Shuchi & Rohit, truly kind souls, is nothing but fun. They both got so so so much energy. Rohit can do the pre-wedding shoot and smile all day even he was sick night before and Shuchi can hike Central Park in her high heels all day long. NYC means lots to Shuchi & Rohit since that’s where they met so what can be better location than that for the shoot. After brainstorming session with Shuchi & Rohit, we decided to do something simple and candid for the pre-wedding shoot.

The festivities started with a very intimate yet vibrant Sangeet at Hindu Samaj Temple of Mahwah. Outdoor Wedding Ceremony and Reception took place at Sheraton Mahwah Hotel. Both venues offer beauty and elegance and floral decoration by Elegant Affairs + foggy morning was breathtaking.

Thanks to DJ Raj for great music during Baraat and Reception.
