Karen & Patrick

Karen & Patrick

Sjömansro, Finland

August 2015

This is going to be a long one but I think you'll like it. 

2015 gave me the wonderful opportunity to shoot a multicultural international wedding in Finland. Patrick and Karen's intimate Finnish-Chinese wedding was held in Sjomansrö ("Sherman's Row"), a World War II retreat for sailors tired of the war. Karen is Chinese and Patrick is Finnish. They met on an online dating forum and fell in love with each other. They decided to get married in the beautiful Finnish summer and I'm glad they picked me to capture their big day. 

Before I get to the wedding, I would like to show you some images I shot when they whisked me away to pluck berries the day I set foot in Helsinki followed by photos from their couple shoot.  

Over the next few days, I got to visit beautiful places in and around Helsinki along with the couple and although the sky was mostly overcast, we managed to get some good ones. Even Patrick's family managed to join us on one such outing. 

There was a forecast for rain on the wedding day but it turned out to be a dud. The beautiful sun was out in all its glory and everything looked so beautifully well-lit. It was a small gathering of 38 guests and the wedding was solemnised by the beach right next to a big old tree right from the WW2 era.

I'll let the photos tell the story. 

We returned to Helsinki after the wedding and the day before I was to fly back to India, they decided to take me on a joyride at the local aerodrome. It was a fitting final to this wonderful wedding in Finland. :) 

As always, do comment and share your love. :)

Tara & Vipul

Goa

December 2014

"When we were planning our wedding, next to choosing the perfect venue, one of the most difficult tasks for us was finding the perfect photographer and wedding filmer. We wanted someone who could perfectly capture all the special moments from the most important day of our lives. As soon as we saw Venkat’s portfolio, we knew we had to fly him down to Goa for our wedding. His candid style was just what we were looking for. Venkat and his team were amazing – we didn’t have to worry at all about anything, they just got it! And they were so professional! My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the photos and video. Venkat and his team managed to really tell our story through every shot and every time we go through the album or watch the film we relive our special day!"


Go right to the very end for the wedding film! :) 

Emotions Galore

This blog post contains images from a few weddings I've shot over the last couple of years.
It is dedicated to the special moments that succeeds the big moment - when the bride and groom become man and wife. A lot of hugging and tears and laughter and celebration - it is important to capture the big moment but it is more important to capture the events that follow the big moment. Showcasing a few that I've been fortunate enough to witness and capture.

Enjoy and do comment below! :)
