by Wedding Photo Professional Wedding Photographer
Being an association of the best wedding photographers in Kolkata, we choose to film couples in exotic destinations as per their preferences. Sankey and Visakha are a newlywed couple and we took the privilege to photograph and film them from their pre-wedding shoot to wedding and reception. Today in this blog, we will share our experiences with the couple during producing their pre-wedding film.
Mandarmani as a pre-wedding destination: Mandarmani is very popular now a day among the destination wedding photographers as a pre-wedding location. The core attractions of Mandarmani is the crawling of red crabs around the 13kms long beach and it’s known to be the longest drive in beach in India. From Kolkata, after crossing the second Hooghly Bridge, Kona Expressway leads to Mumbai Road. As the total drive takes about 4 hours from Kolkata via Kolaghat and Nandakumar. From Nandakumar, there is a right turn towards Contai. In the said Kolkata- Digha highway there is a place named Chawalkhola where a left side road ends at Mandarmani.
The Journey: So one fine morning we the team and the couple started for Mandarmani from Kolkata. Being in Mandarmani gives the shutterbugs some amazing pre-wedding photography goals. The resort, booked by the couple to the beach, well-laid lawns with verdant nooks, relatively low waves of the sea gave us the motivation to film and shoot the couple in the lap of nature.
Filming and Photography: Their concern was the pre-wedding filmand we wanted to produce it in a unique way. Some aerial shots were taken to project the venue, and then we captured the picturesque waves of the bay of Bengal. Dine out shots, driving in the beach, low light shot during the night made the video different and colorful. Our aim was to establish the togetherness of the couple on screen. We also captured some worthwhile walking shots. When the joy of sharing sweet nothings turn into togetherness for a lifetime, you know the walk was worthwhile.
Importance of the Dress Code: Dress code plays a very significant role. A pre-wedding photo shoot is a window for others to see what kind of a couple you are. The photos are like an invitation for your friends to experience a fun day or evening out with the to-be-weds. A photoshoot and cinematography take a lot of time to get those picture perfect shots, and you really don’t want to be sweating it out while smiling for the camera. So we suggest our clients November to February due to the comfortable weather conditions. They picked a suit with waistcoat and gown type long dresses. There were Hawaiian collections and easy breezy closets too for candid moments in the sea beach. Colorful Punjabi suites were picked by the to be a bride for his immense affection for Bollywood movies.
Props as the side characters: Props like a jacket, umbrella, cycle, empty wooden boats in the sea beach played a pivotal role during frame planning as props are used as visual experience enhancers in the pre-wedding shoot.
Moments: Beach, car drive and candid moments are the ultimate epitome of romance. Additionally, fresh leaves, cool morning with few rays of sunshine made the perfect picture background. During the night, we took some indoor shots of dining out and bonfire. Wide shots in the resort arena made the couple picture perfect.
Our two days long pre-wedding photography and film project was an experience full of fun, new learning and joy. We’re known for our professionalism and the advantages of hiring the professional photographers in Kolkata are being discussed in prior articles. But it was our privilege that we got a very warm welcome from the couple and the friendly attitude helped us to be committed and deliver as per expectations.
