One person is passionate about singing, while the other is a ‘hard to impress’ kind of person. Well, they did get convinced that they were made for each other. Introducing to you Roopa and Sanjay.
Sanjay lives in US while Roopa lives just across the pond, in London. After their engagement, it has been a long distance relationship.
Sanjay actually got some talented musicians together a few days before the wedding and composed a song for Roopa. This was his surprise gift for her during the Sangeeth party. How cool is that? :)
It was actually a lot of fun shooting an ‘All Kannadiga’ wedding. I wanted to share a few of my favorite pictures in the blog.
The team consisted of ‘nothing less than Super Heroes’ – Akshay as the second shooter and RamPulla Reddy on the video. :)
Here is a picture I really liked, has her proud mom and her older brother looking over her shoulder. Liked the expressions a lot. That’s a picture of their reflection in the mirror.
Roopa was ready in traditional South Indian wedding attire.
Meet Sanjay, fit to be a ‘Hero’ in a Kannada movie.
While Roopa was doing the Gowri Pooja, Sanjay was getting ready for the Kasiyatra.
Look at the number of hands on his ‘peta’. :D
People had come early in the morning to witness the Kasiyatra.
I like to take pictures where you can see many people interacting in one frame.
Fancy umbrella right!? So colorful!
And then it rained rice grains. :P
Roopa was super excited to see her ‘to-be-husband’.
The Jeerge-Bella ritual turned out to be super fun. When it was time to exchange the Jeerge-Bella, Sanjay was lifted high in the air by his relatives. Awesome!
And they wouldn’t stop looking at each other. You can see their friends and relatives going ‘Dey!’
During the days that go into planning the wedding making sure everybody is taken care of and check all the logistics are in place, you are already aware that you need to let go of your daughter, but its at this moment during the Kanyadhanam, we have witnessed this many times, parents balling with tears. At this point I can only imagine how hard it must’ve been to let go.
Oho. Look at the excitement! :D
What a fantastic shot of Sanjay tying the thali. Akshay! Kudos to you man!
Love this shot. :)
Yes. We are very helpful. We allow our clients to use the LCD on our cameras as a mirror. :)
PS. I look like a mess, well, that’s what happens when you shoot a wedding on the hottest day in 10 years.
Are they delighted or what?!
Roopa and Sanjay, you make such a fun couple.
Wish you the best in life, wherever you are!
Will look forward to running into each other in the future.
Thank you for choosing CuspConcepts.
Hope you like the pictures. :)
