This is our recent pre-wedding Outdoor shoot at Goa. And if you are thinking about the sandy beaches, then take a leaf out of this one. It was the less explored (or at least the less shot) part of Goa that we scouted and camped in. Praveen and Anugna had flown from the US in a 3-week-wedding holiday. Not to mention how crazy the wedding prep gets. We squeezed a day out of their packed bag to hit this one-day trip to Goa. The plan was to remain unplanned and let Goa get the best of us.
We started with the Island of Divar. Mangrove forest, isolated churches, brilliant natural light… we had our moments there on our casual stroll. We then moved to the Casa Araujo Alvares ancestral museum at Loutolim. It was a scenic drive with paddy fields and wooded hills lining the roadway, very characteristic of the Goan countryside. From the wide entrance to the imperial interiors, the 250-year-old house embraced us like a garland of rare flowers. Heritage does have something to do with love and we got some nice shots framed in the vintage backdrops.
We then drove to the Aguada fort that had a long visitor beeline. We looked beyond and got lucky with a secluded spot. Thanks to the lovely super cooperative couple, that we managed to travel between places and fish a lot of memories in a short time. A serene sunset wrapped the day.
