e-session at The Rocks - Sydney - prewedding shoot


Picture
This session took about 3 hours from the moment we met the gorgeous couple - Ganga and Brendan. By the time we arrived at the venue, Ganga and Brendon had made themselves comfortable at the legendary Orient Hotel in the heart of The Rocks. It was a gorgeous Sydney summer afternoon going into a magical and pleasant evening. After the initial 'get-to-know' time and some drinks, we spent the next two and some hours walking around the area chatting about things-various under the Sun and taking some pictures. 

I look forward to shooting your wedding in Jan 2013.





















What are e-sessions?

Pre-Wedding Photo-shoot, also popular as e-session (short for engagement-session) is very popular amongst couples and photographers equal. The purpose of a pre-wedding shoot is for the wedding photographers to get to know a couple and put them at ease in terms of being in front of a camera and having to look comfortable, spontaneous and of course romantic. Since posing doesn't come natural to most people, it is the job of  photographer to do as much as they can to ensure that a couple is totally at ease come the wedding day. 

I encourage couples to go to a little bit of trouble when planning their pre-wedding shoot. Sure, you are organising a whole wedding and you are not likely to have a lot of time on your hands. But doing things a little bit different in terms of outfits and location will ensure you have a gorgeous pre-wedding couple shoot that will produce images you will cherish a life time

The female members of the family then started preparing for the PITHI ritual where turmeric along with other herbs is applied to the groom-to-be's hands and face. They sang traditional wedding songs which were very interesting. Once all the rituals were complete, we left for the wedding ceremony at the Glenwood/Parklea GURUDWARA. 













On reaching the place, the bride was almost ready and was waiting in one of the rooms in the gurudwara. We had some great bridal shots during this time. The bride looked absolutely stunning and was a natural p…
