We are back today with another creative engagement shoot!
Sathees and Tharshini came to us to book their wedding and wanted to include an engagement shoot. We asked them if they wanted to do a more classic shoot or a themed one and Tharshini came forward with the idea of doing a 1950s Thamizh Cinema shoot. We jumped on board instantly! What a great idea! From there, I created a lookbook outlining outfits, make up and hair, jewellry and other accessories. We also did research to stay true to the photos of the era with regards to posing, light, and style. This included Googling, photo searches, and hours of Sivaji, Saroja Devi, and of course, MGR!
What we ended up with was a great shoot with a wonderfully easy-going and happy couple. The day of the shoot, they were so open and willing to try out anything that we had asked. As you can imagine, poses from the 1950s are not quite the same as the ones that are done today and many can be very awkward. Tharshini and Sathees were so clearly comfortable with each other that their ease shines through their photos. Hope you enjoy their shoot! Make up and hair was done by Beauty Fx. Feel free to pin your favourites to Pinterest! 🙂
We had the privilege of being able to shoot their civil ceremony and their Hindu wedding after this shoot. Stay tuned for the write-ups or head on over to our Facebook Fan Page to check them out now 🙂 “Like” the page to stay updated on our current work!
