Sunami + Arjun: A Mumbai monsoon pre-wedding shoot

Mumbai. Monsoons. When these two come together, it creates a very unique setting for a photo shoot. The blazing heat of the sun is replaced by the cool breeze from the Arabian Sea. Blue skies make way for dark grey monsoon clouds. No matter how tempting it is to stay home and watch the rain from your window while munching on pakoras and chai, sometimes you must go out and shoot.

We started shooting at Jogger’s Park but soon realised that the rain is going to be unrelenting. Thanks to Jatin Hariani who assisted me on this shoot and ensured my camera stayed dry throughout. After realising outdoors might not work, we headed to Sweetish House Mafia for some indoor shots. Meanwhile the rain had stopped and the sun had started to peek through the clouds. We used this opportunity to head to Fat Man’s Cafe and finished off the photo shoot with some outdoor portraits. Overall it was quite a challenge owing to the rain but where’s the fun otherwise, am I right? 🙂
