It was on a fascinating note that we set out to the Shore temple @ Mahabalipuram outdoor shoot of Mekhala and Gareth. Earlier in the studio when we were discussing the location for the shoot with the couple, we were worried on the odds of rain as a spoilsport, since it had been raining that week. Gareth had a classic response to it, “Well I feel it is worth it, that we wait and shoot in the Shore temple, even if it rains. It’s my long time dream”. It was kind of personal for us to realize that a person from the faraway lands of Europe has been strongly spelled by the magnificence of the Shore temple, as we learnt the way he lost himself to it over time. So Shore temple it was that we drove to, on an early morning.
It had rained heavy the earlier day and was due to shower in a while too. But nothing stopped the lovely couple from having fun on their walk. Like an understanding without an explanation, they shared a wonderful chemistry every time they looked into each other. It was a treat for us to capture the moments on the go. In a way, love always has had a strong relationship with heritage, for both are timeless. It was a magical experience as we walked through the spaces of the Shore temple and let the moments flow in the frames.
Swish was the sound as they opened up the umbrella when the rain paid a friendly visit. Mekhala was all smiles and animated. Gareth was strongly moved by the place and expressed his awe so often. Two loving souls under one umbrella with a drizzle and lush greens all around – well we reserve the words from here for you to see the pictures and feel it yourself.
Truly one of the most loving couples we’ve shot, and yes, a memorable outing that we shall treasure for a long time. Wishing the couple a happy life ahead. Stay blessed Mekhala and Gareth! 🙂
