A Delhi Wedding Photography Story | Anuroop+Kabir

A journey of loyalty and deep faith that led to a heartwarming celebration of love in a Delhi wedding

You know it’s love when you cannot imagine your life without a person, no matter what the distance or situation is. Kabir and Anuroop’s journey is one of adoration, loyalty, and deep faith.

Kabir has lived in Australia his whole life but was always connected to his Punjabi roots. That’s what attracted him about Anuroop – that she was also so in touch with her culture and religion. Though arranged, their love grew such over time that it didn’t matter how difficult situations got, or how far apart they lived, they knew that they were meant to be together. They recognised that they became better humans in each other’s presence. Each conversation confirmed what they already felt – that their love was stronger and they could achieve anything together. Love and marriage meant everything to them. And they truly believed that a larger divine force brought them together.

We had a great time shooting them for their pre-wedding in the royal Neemrana Hillfort Kesroli. They were so comfortable and in love with each other that all we had to do was press that shutter button.

Kabir’s family was most excited to have Anuroop be a part of their family. Lovely as she is, it took no time for her to bond with his family. Likewise, Kabir seamlessly became a part of her life and family. Anuroop and Kabir’s friends and family flew from all across the world – US, Australia, Singapore – to be a part of their big day. The three-day Delhi wedding celebrations in Karma Lakelands were one of the most heartwarming and beautiful celebrations of love we’ve shot this year.

Here are some of our favorite moments from their wedding.

A Jaipur Destination Wedding Story | Gaurav+Arushi

An NRI-Punjabi Jaipur destination wedding that had us tapping our feet

There are some weddings where we, as wedding photographers, want to abandon our cameras and join in on the fun. Gaurav and Arushi’s wedding celebrations were one of them! Since the beginning, we received so much warmth that it didn’t really feel like we were working.

It was such a pleasure to shoot Gaurav and Arushi and create memorable images for them. They had an easygoing chemistry that made it a breeze to shoot them together! They gave us the patience and time that is rare considering how busy weddings usually are.

Their wedding celebrations were exactly what you would imagine a Punjabi wedding is like! Loads of dancing, drama, and fun! People from all over the world – US, Germany, Pune, Switzerland – had flown in to celebrate. And love and laughter were in no scarcity during the celebrations. So everyone, from the youngest to the oldest, danced like there’s no tomorrow at the sangeet ceremony. The haldi ceremony was full of glee, mischief, and merriment. Gaurav’s family splashed everything on him from the actual haldi to water, juice and even cold drinks. We had a blast shooting the 2-day celebrations.

Gaurav and Arushi got married at the regal JW Marriott in Jaipur. They made vows to love and support each other in front of their closest family and friends. Here are some of our favourite moments from the wedding.

A Delhi Wedding Photography Story | Ashish+Varsha

Two beautiful people make vows for life in a Delhi wedding

You can never know when love will make its way into your life. It could be while you’re looking for it or even when you’re least expecting it. You don’t get to choose who you fall in love with, or when. But when it comes around, it’s the best thing that can ever happen to you in this lifetime.

For Varsha and Ashish, a normal weekday turned to be the first day of the beginning of their lives together. They both had no idea that they would find their life partners at a chance meeting during a family visit. Ashish was struck by Varsha’s beautiful smile. A few conversations were all it took for them to decide that they were “it” for each other. They realised that they wanted the same things – love, family, and companionship – in life. Even their families agreed that they were the right partners for each other. Varsha’s family were joyful that their daughter was going to be a part of such a warm and loving family.

Their wedding celebrations began with an engagement and sangeet ceremony. It was a lovely sight to see the couple together and happy. Their chemistry was the kind where they didn’t need to express it in public but just knew by looking at each other.

Ashish and Varsha got married in a simple yet beautiful ceremony and made vows for life in front of their family and friends.

Watch Ashish and Varsha promise to love each other for a lifetime in a beautiful Delhi-Sirsa wedding.

Tips for Better Back-Lit Portraits in Natural Light

Create those dreamy and romantic back-lit portraits in natural light

The very first step to being a good photographer is learning to see light. It is, after all, the most important part of photography. As beginners and as professionals, we work with light while shooting. We chase after good light and learn to work with harsh light. But we especially love the challenge of working with natural light, as it changes every day and every season, so there’s always something new to create. One of our favourite techniques while making portraits in natural light for our couples is back-lit photography. It creates a romantic and dreamy effect with beautiful warm tones in the image. Mastering the technique may take time, but the efforts will be worth it once you get it right.

Here are a few tips that will help you master those perfect back-lit portraits in natural light.

Krabi pre wedding destination couple photography Twogether Studios

Diffuse the sun

When shooting against the light, the sun can cause flares or haze in your images. Unless including the flare is part of your artistic vision, you need to place your subject or angle your shot in such a way that you are able to control it. Don’t be afraid to use “open shade” or try to position your subject in places where the sunlight naturally filters through the trees, large bushes, tall buildings or any other element in your surroundings. This way, the background is not blown out and you get that dreamy bokeh in the background. Using a lens hood is also a way to cut back on the lens flare.

Another thing to remember is not to shoot from only one place or angle. Keep moving around to find a spot where your subject and light are both balanced in the frame. Back-lit photos don’t mean that the sun has to be directly behind the subject, it can also be angled. Angle yourself and the camera in such a way that sunlight doesn’t hit the lens directly.

pre-wedding couple shoot wedding photography

Spot meter for face

Metering is an important part of getting a backlit shot right. When you shoot in matrix or evaluative metering mode, the camera takes into account the light of the entire frame. In that case, because of the light streaming from the back, your subject will be darker than the background. Using spot metering will get you the right exposure for the subject’s face and skin tone. Now when you spot meter for face, the background will be blown out. So first spot meter for face, and then adjust the exposure by a few stops so as to balance the background with the subject. But if the subject gets dark while you’re trying to correctly expose the background, then our next tip will help you out.

Use a reflector or fill flash

This is how you compensate for the brighter background, and light up your subject. You can use fill flash to light up part of the subject’s face that is dark or getting no/less light. The flash will give you the option of lighting up the subject’s face with the angle and power that you want. So the flash acts as a supplement to the natural light. You can even use a reflector to add light to the subject’s face. Hold it and adjust until the right amount and intensity of light are reflected on your subject’s face.

Choose the right time of day

There’s definitely a good and bad time of day when it comes to taking backlit pictures in natural light. In our experience, an hour after sunrise and before sunset is a good time, but the golden hour is the best time to shoot. That warm, dreamy light that you see is usually achieved during the golden hour but remember that in India, it lasts only about 20-30 minutes. So be absolutely prepared with your camera and light settings. If you haven’t set up beforehand, the light will be gone before you know it and you will miss the shot.

If it happens that you aren’t able to shoot around sunrise or sunset for any reason, avoid shooting around noon at any costs because it’ll cast harsh shadows. Remember, it’s backlight and not top light.

We agree it’a slightly difficult skill to master, but with practice, we’re sure you will be taking those gorgeous and dreamy back-lit portraits in no time. The key is to remember all the above guidelines and practice, practice, practice! We also have a post on back-lit photography with artificial light coming up soon!

A Delhi Wedding Photography Story | Abhishek+Annissa

Two souls joined together in a beautiful Delhi wedding photography story

They say that third time’s a charm. And it was certainly true for Abhishek and Annissa. Something magical happened when they met for the third time, something that couldn’t be defined or explained. But it felt like a larger force bringing them together irrevocably. It felt like destiny.

Everyone in their families described the pair as a match made in heaven. Annissa’s affectionate bond with her sister-in-law’s and her mother-in-law was so sweet to witness. And her family couldn’t be happier at finding a caring, loving gentleman for their beloved daughter.

It was such a pleasure to shoot their pre-wedding in the picturesque Roseate. We could see the spark between them that only comes from a deep love and bonding. When Abhishek is around Annissa, nothing else matters to him. They both just go in their happy bubble when they’re together, which is perfect for us since it gave us the chance to capture some loving and intimate moments between them!

The gorgeous duo got married in a two-day celebration in the regal ITC Maurya in Delhi. It was such an honour to shoot the very first wedding to happen in ITC Maurya. We loved the intimate feel of the wedding functions. Their sangeet was a vibrant and energetic affair with dance performances and music. Not to mention, the heartwarming celebration of love between two families. Here are some of our favorite moments from their wedding.

P.S.: Don’t forget to scroll down and see their wedding trailer!

Tips for Creating a Good Photography Blog

The secret to a good photography blog at your fingertips

As photography professionals, we are always looking for ways to increase our reach and gain more audience. And an audience is what a photographer needs the most. And as a company that has built a community of thousands of loyal online audience over the past decade, we think that creating a photography blog is definitely the step towards it.

You might be wondering why we’re writing about creating a photography blog when there are so many other social media outlets to reach people. Well, we’ll tell you. It’s definitely not the same as social media, but blogging has its own host of advantages to you and your business as a photographer. It gives you a separate platform to showcase more of your work, images that don’t make it to your social media. You can engage more personally with your audience, show the people the person behind the work and connect with them on a more intimate level. In the past years, blogging has become a significant marketing tool used to attract audiences and boost businesses.

What you intend it for and how you use the platform is on you, but we’re here to just tell you the basics of establishing a good photography blog. So if you’re an aspiring photographer who wants to expand your business potential or just someone who is an enthusiast, read on to know more.

tips for good photography blog SEO twogether studios

#1 Know the basics

It goes without saying that frequency is important in establishing a good blog. If a visitor lands upon your blog and sees a post that is at least a month or two old, they’ll assume that your blog is inactive and move on. So try and post at least once a week. Posting regularly also helps in building good SEO, which we will come to later in this post. But when you keep posting consistently, your audience will also come to expect your posts and look forward to them. If you want to build a long-term community of readers and photographers, you should follow a schedule and stick to it. Posting content regularly is the only way to keep people coming back to your blog and build your audience.

Bring your personality out in your writing. People may see and admire your photos but they also want to know the person behind the work. So keep it conversational and light, and bring your quirks, funny observations out in your writing. It’s quite possible that whatever you choose to write about may have been done before, but what will make it different is the things you add to the writing.

seo tips for good photography blog

#2 Make sure your photos take centre stage

As a photography blog, people will expect to see more of photos when they visit. Of course, writing is a huge part of blogging, but it’s the pictures that are central to your work. So choose a template that best displays your pictures. Even in your articles, add at least 4-5 images between the text. This will serve two purposes – one, it will break the monotony of the text by a visual, two, your audience will relate to the text more when they see a related image with it. So always accompany the text with an image in context to it.

When you add images with alt titles and tags in your posts, you will also generate traffic to your website from image search engines. For example, when writing about “Tips for Shooting Good Bridal Portraits”, add alt tags to your bridal photo. This way when a bride searches for “bridal photos” on Google, you might come up in search results.

tips for good seo in your photography blog

#3 Blog for the right reasons

If you start a blog with the intention of getting free deals, gear, and cameras, you’re doing it wrong. It should never be about money and products. You should do it for your passion for photography, and the money and deals will come to you eventually. When you focus on content, it shows in your writing and your audience will see it too. Once you have the attention of a large number of people, brands and other companies will realise the worth of collaborating with you. So blog to inspire, to put your ideas out there and to engage in conversation with your peers. Correct motivation is the key to a successful photography blog.

Twogether Studios good photography blog tips

#4 Find your niche

Decide what you want to write and talk about and who is your audience. Starting a photography blog is great and all, but you need to figure out what you want to say when you start one. Is it going to be an extension of your website with more work and portfolio pictures for clients? Do you want to be a thought leader and voice your opinions on ideas related to the industry? Or will you help aspiring photographers with your knowledge and inspire them to do better? Whichever direction you want to go, it’s important to make a decision. Once you’ve defined the category in which you’re going to play, tailor your content accordingly. Defining your niche will also help you target a specific set of people and market your content so that it reaches the right audience.

#5 Stay relevant

Once you know which topics you’re going to write on, stay relevant. Keep up with the latest news in that sphere and write about topical things. If you’ve decided to write educational posts about photography, stay updated on the current trends, issues, and discussions pertinent to photography. Give your audience tips to improve their skills, voice your opinions on the problems plaguing the industry or encourage a discussion on the current trends in the industry. Whatever you choose, make sure it interests your readers and is of use of them.

#6 Follow good SEO practices

Start with building good quality internal links and backlinks. You gain credibility when a website or blog other than yours links to your website (backlink). Imagine it like a good reference in an interview. Ask for a link to your website/blog when wedding blogs mention you. Also, link any of your older posts in your text, but keep the internal links limited to 2-3 in one post. This is a good way to improve your bounce rate.

The next step to a good SEO is using the right keywords in your post. What would your average consumer search for when looking for a wedding photographer online? Choose one keyword relevant to the content of your post and use the same in the following – post title, URL, H1/H2 tags, meta tags and spread them evenly throughout your text, but don’t spam. We’ve spoken in detail about good SEO practices for wedding photographers, so head on over there to read about how to rank your website better.

tips for good photography blog SEO

#7 Engagement and marketing

Encourage discussion on your post, so that people keep visiting and coming back. End your post with a question or encourage readers to comment about their experiences, give suggestions or ask questions if they have any. Another way to get more engagement is by commenting on others’ blogs. When you consistently engage with other blog-writers, eventually they will come to your blog and comment too. Make sure to reply to comments and questions on time. Readers appreciate prompt replies and will be more inclined to comment again. You could even get another photographer to be a guest-writer for you.

Another way to increase engagement is by making it easy for friends and family to share your posts. The more people share articles from your website, the more it adds to your blog’s credibility and Google ranking. This will also add to the traffic on your website.

It sounds like a lot of work, but we assure you it isn’t. If you don’t think of it as a chore, it won’t be. In fact, we can tell you from experience that it becomes a fun process along the way. You can always decide how often you want to write and choose a pace that suits you. But also remember, that this isn’t an overnight process. It takes a while to build a community of loyal readers and gain credibility.

If you have any questions or tips you would like to share, please drop a comment. We’d love to answer any queries and take your suggestions.

An Assam Destination Wedding Story| Samarth+Tanvi

A beautiful destination wedding in Tinsukia

Love has no timeline or limitations. For someone, it takes just one look and sometimes it may take a few conversations. But when it’s meant to be, love always finds its way.

Tanvi was absolutely awestruck the first time she met Samarth. He, on the other hand, had no clue that Tanvi would be the girl he would end up marrying. But her softness soon won him over and his heart sang for her.

Their families couldn’t be happier with their decision of spending a life together. Tanvi and her mother-in-law spent so much time talking that Samarth joked that they knew each other better than him. Although Tanvi’s family were sorrowful at the thought of their cherished daughter going away, they were equally happy that she had found the perfect partner and a loving family. Everyone from Samarth’s parents to his sister was delighted to have a charming daughter-in-law and couldn’t wait for her to be a part of their family.

They had a super crazy haldi ceremony followed by a lovely sangeet where Samarth sang for Tanvi while our shy bride blushed and smiled. The duo made promises for life in a beautiful ceremony in Tinsukia, Assam amongst their closest family and friends.

Watch Samantha and Tanvi make promises to spend forever as one in a beautiful wedding in Tinsukia, Assam.

Behind-the-Scenes | How we got the shot

A behind-the-scenes look at what we do to create that special image

One thing we’ve learned from shooting weddings over the years is that anything can happen. There are tons of unplanned situations and challenges that we have to overcome to create beautiful images for our couples. We don’t always shoot at fantastical locations with fireworks, sometimes we work in plain banquet halls and unadorned rooms. So it’s quite right to say that getting stunning images is never dependant on whether the location is exotic or the decorations grand. It’s all about your perspective and the beauty that you choose to see even in the ordinary.

We don’t want our audiences or other aspiring photographers thinking that the situation is always perfect for us. Things often go wrong, but what we do differently is adapt quickly and change our game plan. So we decided to take a few images shot over the past few months, take you behind the scenes, and talk about how and what we did to get the final result. We hope it helps you understand that it’s not always about the ideal setting but trying to create something incredible with whatever you have.

Beauty in the Mountains

Arjun Kartha Wedding photography Bridal portrait Mussoorie India

Isha got married at the beautiful Jaypee Resort in Mussoorie. While doing her portraits, we really wanted to create an image that captured the beauty of the hills, combine it with the sunset while doing something crazy! We got this gorgeous picture of Isha from outside the room with the Mussorie mountains and a remarkable sunset reflected on the window glass.

How we got the shot: Shot with a 24-70 lens at 1/160 with 2.8 f-stop and at ISO 500. We placed one off-camera light inside next to Isha.

Love-struck

We’re always looking for interesting angles and perspectives to add a layer to an image – a reflective surface or an interesting shoot-through space. This would have been a pretty but nevertheless, a standard couple entry shot had we taken it from front and centre. But we thought it would be more interesting to shoot Rahul and Sanya’s sangeet entry from a different viewpoint. The reflective surface caught our eye and the decor added another element to the image. And don’t you just love the adoring look on Rahul’s face?

How we got the shot: We shot this with a Fuji XH-1, 16mm F1.4R WR lens at f-stop 1.4 and shutter speed of 1/100 and ISO 200.

Old-World Charm

Another one of those portraits taken in a plain bridal room. Sometimes, instead of trying to create something dramatic, it’s much more powerful to play on the simple. By keeping the background basic, we draw more attention to Varsha.

How we got the shot: We shot this with the Fuji XH-1, a 16mm F1.4 R WR lens at f-stop 1.4 with a shutter speed of 1/200 and ISO 200. This was a two light set-up shot. We placed one light with a softbox in front of Varsha to illuminate her face while one light with a magmod grid was placed behind her.

Joy of Traditions

Indian groom haldi ritual wedding photography

Haldi ceremonies are action-packed and SO unpredictable that it’s not possible to plan anything. You just have to wait, crouched in between the family members, for that right moment when everything falls into your frame. We did and we got this fantastic shot of a joyful groom surrounded by family during his haldi ceremony.

How we got the shot: Shot at 14mm with a 14-24mm lens, shutter speed at 1/160 with f-stop 2.8 and ISO 1000.

Beauty in Reflection

Often, the places where the brides get ready are plain, nondescript hotel rooms with nothing to play around with. But as wedding photographers, it’s our job to create magic and make an ordinary frame look exceptional. What you can’t see in this photo is the same regular room that our bride Varsha was getting ready in, and that is exactly the point of creating something like this! The location takes a back seat because the perspective we take absolutely fixes one’s attention to our gorgeous bride! We shot this with Varsha’s dupatta in the foreground while we focus on her reflection in the piece of mirror that she holds.

How we got the shot: Shot with Fuji XH-1 with a 56mm F1.2 R lens at f-stop 1.2, shutter speed of 1/250 and at ISO 100. We used one off-camera flash with a softbox aimed at Varsha’s face.

Look of Love

Behind-the-scenes Indian groom wedding photography

The energy of every baraat and groom is different and it gives us the opportunity to create something new every time we shoot. We shot this particular image through the horse’s ears who was pulling Ashish’s carriage during his wedding procession. Instead of the usual chaos that is typical of a baraat, we wanted to capture Ashish’s easygoing personality and his happiness on getting married to the girl of his dreams. And this perspective gave us the perfect opportunity to drown everybody else out and focus on his radiant expression.

How we got the shot: Shot with a Fuji XT-2 with a 56mm F1.2 R lens at f-stop 1.2, with a shutter speed of 1/200 at ISO 1000.

The structure and rituals in most Indian weddings are pretty similar. So it’s always a pleasure to push ourselves to create something distinctive for each couple during a wedding. In fact, we love the challenge that weddings throw at us! It gives the chance to approach the same scene differently.

If you have any questions, ask away in the comments! We’d love to hear about your BTS (behind-the-scenes) stories and know how you overcame a challenge at a wedding.

We love weddings! And we love shooting weddings! Through our years of experience, we know the ins and outs of a wedding day. And we know just how special it is for a bride. It’s the day you’ve been dreaming about for months, the day when all your preparations come together in a beautiful ceremony. It’s your day! But in the hustle bustle, excitement and nervousness of your day, it can be hard to remember or even take out time for photos. Which is where we, the wedding photographers, come in! We love getting creative and spending time taking bridal portraits. And while we love every aspect – the mehendi, the jewellery, the shoes – there are certain things we never forget to capture on a wedding day. Here’s a list of shots we love to capture on a bridal shoot.

#1 Lehenga shot

We know you’ve spent so many hours and days pouring over bridal magazines, visiting boutiques, following bridal trends and getting that blouse fit juuust right. All for that perfect lehenga for your wedding day. So why not let your photographer take that shot of your lehenga swaying in the wind? We love going on a hunt for that quirky place to hang our bride’s gorgeous lehengas and make it the star of the image.

#2 Getting Ready

We love capturing the process of a girl becoming a bride. It is one of the parts of your wedding story. This is also a perfect time for us to capture fleeting emotions our bride’s go through before their wedding. Her excitement, nervousness, that beautiful bridal glow on her face. It’s also a great time to capture those intimate moments with her family while she’s getting ready. When the bride’s sister helps her put on her jewellery, or when the bride’s Mom settles that dupatta on her head. The look on the father’s face when he sees his daughter for the first time as a bride is priceless!

#3 Bridal Portrait

All your wedding preparations for months have been leading up to this moment – when you’re finally dressed as a bride. And we love capturing our brides in all their glory! This is where we take our own sweet time to give you a portrait that transcends time and trends. We really work towards creating an image that highlights the best of you on your special day.

#4 Bridal Entry

Now that you’re all ready, all eyes are waiting for you. And so is our camera’s lens! It’s quite heartwarming to capture the bride’s entrance with her entourage of loved ones. Every bridal entry is different. Some walk in with a phoolo ki chaadar overhead, some make an entry while their family holds sparklers, or some brides go big and enter in a grand palki. When all eyes are on her, every bride reacts differently as well. Some blush and get shy, and some dance and walk confidently through their entries. Whatever your style is, make your bridal entry and be assured that we’ll be there to make it a memory for you!

#5 Vidaai

Vidaai ceremonies are truly heartwarming and extremely emotional moments in an Indian wedding. It’s a bittersweet moment as the bride says goodbye to her family. We love how all the emotions just burst forth during a vidaai. It’s extremely important for us to capture this moment of great sentiment as the bride leaves her family and loved ones.

Of course, these are not the only images we create for a bride on her wedding day. We go far and beyond to give our brides what they want and deserve. Every bride is unique in her own way and her bridal shots are created to suit her style. We suggest that whatever you do, make sure you take some time out for portraits. This day will not come back again and we know from experience that you will cherish the memories from this day for life.
