Outdoor shoot or the Engagement shoot as it is popularly called in US is something that I always ask the couple to go with. There are several reasons to it. As a photographer I’m always in pursuit of the next best picture. This holds true even for my wedding photographs. I’m always in search for my next best wedding picture. This is like the pursuit of happiness. You can only pursue it and not achieve it. Because when you achieve it you are obviously pursuing for the next best one. That’s why I love shooting the engagement/outdoor shoot. It gives so much freedom as a photographer to try different things unlike in the wedding where I’m doing my best to document what’s going on and do not really control the proceedings. Every time we do a outdoor shoot, the couple love it. Just imagine being all by yourself during the time of wedding forgetting all the chaos happening around you and at a scenic place doing crazy things that your photographer asks you to do. Every couple I have worked with have enjoyed the experience.
When Hamed and Huma contacted me for their wedding, I suggested them to also go for a outdoor shoot because Hyderabad is where they met and its so close to their heart and I wanted to bring in the sense of city in their pictures. With all the rituals and late night wedding we could not really go around Hyderabad a lot but at least we were able to take some shots around the place they stayed. Nevertheless we had a wonderful time. Hamed and Huma are one of the most photogenic couple and it was great to capture their lovely moments. Here are some of the pictures from the outdoor shoot
