A four-day extravaganza. Four days of absolute bliss.If we call it the Utopian paradise for the family, friends, guests and the photographer, we shall not be wrong. Capturing this wedding in frames has been an exhilarating experience - a model couple with amazing chemistry to shoot, a beautiful wedding design with all the bright yet aesthetically pleasing colors, a backdrop of gorgeous turquoise Mexican beaches, amazing sunsets and a fun bunch of family and friends, ready to dance and party all the time. It was like pure paradise, fun, frolic, laughter and the photo Gods smiling at us all the time. We didn't miss a single beat in capturing all those wonderful moments generously showered upon us.
It wasn't only us who felt carried away by Shallu & Hobie's beautiful Indian destination wedding at Iberostar, Puerto Vallarta. But all felt the same, be it the guests staying at the resort or a passer by...none could resist stopping by, checking our beautiful couple, and enjoying the intriguing rituals of the Punjabi Sikh Ceremony held at an open gazebo, by the beach side. The model couple was surely a head turner. We did capture some of those paparazzis clicking pictures of the couple.
Hobie has a modeling background which helped a lot during their portraits shoots. The couple would fall into all the natural poses without any direction or prompting on our part. Shallu's mom, Lilly, runs a very well known bridal makeup and stylizing salon in Bay Area, http://www.lillysbeautyworld.com. So it goes without saying that the couple looked their best at all the events.
The four-day celebrations started with much fun.The first day was a pool side welcome party for all the guests arriving at the wedding.We also captured some bridal party images with a gorgeous sunset and the sunset hue was made even more extraordinary by the blue of the pool and the mesmerizing yellow and orange sky.
The second day witnessed the ceremony of Mayiaan and Sangeet which again gave us many interesting moments to capture.The sangeet was a sensational mix of dance, music and pure fun. All captured by us with a subtility and intricacy.
The third day witnessed the big affair...the wedding ceremony and reception. We were delighted that that couple agreed on our proposal for the day after shoot. They wanted that shoot in an informal and non-traditional way and went full throttle for the shoot, just being themselves and forgetting that there was a shutter capturing their intimacy, warmth, and love.
