Pre Wedding Shoot by Divesh Kudvalkar
Sometimes when new trends become such a rage that everyone catches the fever of following it, I tend think what’s so great about it? Why are people so crazy about it? I think that’s true about selfies. Everyone has caught a fever of taking selfies with the pouts and god knows what. Even though I myself clicked our first ever family selfie long before the term “selfie” was coined. I felt something similar about the concept of pre wedding shoot. Thought people were crazy to go for a photoshoot before the wedding. Traditionally that wasn’t something I had even thought of during my wedding. But gradually, looking at some seriously creative and awesome results from photographers I follow, my thinking towards pre wedding shoot changed. I think there are quite a few benefits of having a pre wedding shoot. So I decided to catch up with my ex-colleague and friend Divesh Kudvalkar to know more about this and get a few doubts cleared about professional pre wedding photography services.
When you decide to go for something new, you tend to have many doubts on mind and these can make you restless. As I learned more about professional pre wedding shoot, I too had a few doubts on mind and thus I approached Divesh with some really basic doubts and queries about pre wedding shoot. I’ve put that small conversation here in form of a Q & A.
Please introduce yourself and the your preferred photography gear.
I’m Divesh Kudvalkar. Being a UI (User interface) designer and photoshop enthusiast, I always come across challenging design tasks. According to me, “Similarity in thought process while creating and while editing a creative, gives birth to a great Design.”
Thus, I Started experimenting to ‘create’ the photographs, which eventually gave a birth to a photographer in me. Thus, the journey started in the year 2009, with my first professional DSLR camera, i.e. Cannon 550D. Currently I have upgraded to Cannon 5D Mark IV, Go Pro and DJI Osmo.
Why should one go for a pre wedding shoot?
Every relationship is unique in its own way. Every couple has a different chemistry which can be uniquely depicted in a pre wedding shoot. The pre wedding photographs have more scope to depict the cuteness in the relationship than the usual wedding photographs. And that’s the main reason one must go ahead with pre wedding shoot.

The only expectation from the client is a dressing with bright and vibrant colours complimenting each other’s clothing. Apart from the clothing a lot of patience and enthusiasm is expected.
