Sri | Deepu

It was on a late Friday evening we at Framehunt Photography received a call for a Hyderabad wedding. On one of the busiest days of the year, December 29 a grand wedding itinerary spread over four days and two states. It was the bride's best friend whom we spoke to in the initial days. Anchal, being the best friend and wonderful photographer herself we received a detailed idea of what the bride wanted form us. We prepared a file of our best works and presented the strongest case for us. Down to the final two we had the opportunity to speak with the bride herself, Sri. Settled in San Jose , California Sri spoke in with clarity and a beautiful innocence on the wedding she wanted. She didn't desire for an over the top wide shot wedding. A collection of 20 photographs worthy enough to be framed in her house. To look at them at any point in life, that will take her back to the most beautiful day of her life. An album of candids for her mother to turn the pages, smile, love and cherish the memories when her daughter is in sunny California away from Annavaram. It's an overwhelming challenge but one we loved. When a vision being described to you is so precise and full of emotions you have to deliver an output that matches our potential and their faith in us. We set off in two to Annavaram and Hyderabad. Two states, Telengana and Andhra Pradesh. Day 1: Pellikuthru a traditional ceremony of laughter, teasing and water play in the backdrop of purity of yellow in turmeric. An occasion that signifies the purity of marriage with a hint of joy and celebration. As per Sri's vision we laid strong emphasis on candid Photography capturing the playfulness amongst the family, her cousins and the anticipation of a wedding day in the air. Day 2: Sangeeth and cocktails. As the wedding day is hours away an evening function to give a warm welcome to the friends and family who travelled a long way to share the happiness in Sri and Deepus life. A vibrant occasion marked by a celebration of music and togetherness in the family. Day 3: Big day is here. After months and days of anticipation it's finally here. The idea of those 20 photographs worthy of being framed still ringing at the back of our heads we got to work. Capturing every moment, smile, laughter... traditions that keep us humble. It was a wedding that made us proud of our crew who worked tirelessly to capture every moment, for that perfect photograph. It was Sri's dream and Framehunt Photography had the immense responsibility to deliver. Day 4: Reception. Spending three days in the light of traditions and our rich culture it was time to let loose, celebrate the wonderful past three days. Celebration of a wedding that drew people from across boders within India and outside of it. We had to switch from the ambience of traditions and cultures to a celebration of the wedding day. We even displayed a highlight video of the past three for the audience. Possibly the fastest edit ever done. But that's the love and affection we received at Annavaram. A family that welcomed us with open arms. A bride and groom who made us feel at home like a family. A place that humbled us with it's simplicity. Thank you for your love and support. On to the next wedding, our next journey.
