Seema + Dhrushal Pre-Wedding Photography Qatar.
Seema and Dhrushal are couple goals! It all started when Dhrushal flew from Qatar to Manchester to propose Seema without her knowledge. She harks back to the time when the string quartet played the 'hotline bling' on the violins that got her with a stun :)
For the pre-wedding shoot, We chose Souq Al Wakrah , a new hang out spot in Qatar in the morning. There were a few cafes, restaurants and a coastline to walk-along. While shooting the couple in this pseudo-aged architecture, there was a deeper profound connection and they were comfortable expressing themselves :) Seema recalls " He cracks a joke, hugs me, tickles me to make me smile. He appreciates me for who I am and turns my negative perceptions into positive ones". I believe these traits is what can keep a relationship going strong.
Our second location was Pearl, Qatar, an artificial island with marinas, residential towers and hotel. We shot in a mown lawn in the heart of the Pearl. Dhrushal played a song that reminds of them and Seema turned all pink :) Cool to shoot those expressions indeed!
I wanted to make my last set of pictures look more interesting and romantic. Shooting in front of Marsa Malaz Kempenski would be great idea but sadly the gates surrounding them were closed and locked. When I slowed down a bit, I found a loophole that allows us to enter an area of bare land and an open water course in front of this beautiful palace view! I immediately used my power outlet in car to pull out the little lights. We creeped in real quick and draped the string of white lights around the couple :P I'm sure they had so much fun doing it.
When I asked Dhrushal what makes him still to be in love with his partner, his answer was a bomb! " Look at her, How can I not be!" I think it's a God's gift to him as he is to her :) I'm really glad to shoot the two and wishing the soon to be married couple a truly magical and meaningful life together :)
