Jalandhar, October 3
With the wedding season around the corner, Jalandharites seem to have become little open to the concept of underwater pre-wedding shoot, the idea that was earlier in vogue in metro cities
Recently, a Jalandhar-based couple chose to pose themselves inside a swimming pool. Freelance model Abhishek Gotra and his wife Neha, who works with a tourism company, got their photo shoot done in a swimming pool last week. “It involved a lot of effort but the results came out so well. Ever since I have posted these pictures on my social media pages, I have been getting a lot of inquiries from couples set to get married in due course of time,” said Charanjit Lagah, a wedding photographer.
Says Lagah, “The concept was not earlier popular in Jalandhar as either the groom or the bride would say they were not comfortable with it. Also, photographers themselves need to be good swimmers and have water-proof gadgets. I used Iphone for the shoot. The couple had to be given training on how to move in water, how to keep eyes open and give poses. It took us the whole day. I clicked several pictures but ultimately could get the required quality only in about 15 pictures. We shot videos as well.”
Abhishek, who got married three days back, said: “It was an awesome experience. We had a sitting with the photographer and we told him that we wanted an experience worth being remembered. He suggested underwater pre-wedding shoot and we agreed.”
He said: “There was an issue that pools in all hotels of the city were shut owing to Covid but the photographer arranged a shoot for us at a private pool owned by one of his acquaintances. They first drained out the water, got it cleaned and refilled it for us. The underwater pre-wedding shoot was the major highlight of our marriage, especially for us as we knew that we were not going on a honeymoon owing to the pandemic. All our relatives, guests and friends have been asking us about it ever since.”
Asked if their party-wear dresses got spoilt in water, “No, nothing of that sort happened. Our dresses are in perfect condition, though we had thought these would be one-time wear.”
