Pre Wedding Shoot at Ruins of Hampi ( The Vijayanagara Empire)
It is true when they say, marriages are made in heaven. Perhaps, this belief makes a strong imprint in our hearts and minds when we get to meet this beautiful couple Mounika and Vikram.
We witnessed love coming to life when we saw them together, their eyes tell us the story behind how they fell in love and moved along this far. It was not much of a hard work for photographing such lovely moments of this couple, as all they did was dancing in love. It doesn’t get more real and true to life than this.
Vikram, an IITian and very workaholic. Mounika, an Olympian who just missed her 200m qualifier by few seconds.
It is understood by now that both had their targets locked and we all fail to even imagine how in all possible ways they could get together and start off a new life.
It was all growing intuitions and curiosity for us to understand how love blossomed and destiny got them together.
Vikram reveals he saw Mounika in one of the weddings and could not take his eyes off her. He did not wait much to use all his contacts to get himself introduced to Mounika. They settled for a good friendship for then, as the love bug did not sting them yet.
After the wedding, they shook hands and moved away. Since then Vikram started to feel that he left something behind and cannot go back without it. Vikram’s checklist shows all ticks but there is still something missing. “What is it?” he started to wonder.
He was left with few blank moments, some sleepless nights and little empty spaces in his thoughts. Just then, he decided to scroll through the gallery folder in his mobile to see some old photos for diversion.
Suddenly he stopped scrolling at a point and kept looking at a pic, his heart skipped a beat and something swept him off his feet. “Its Mounika!” he started thinking aloud now.
Vikram realised he fell in love with Monika and has already started missing her. Monika was the missing part of his life and it is all clear now.
But Vikram did not win her heart immediately as she was busy with her Olympic goals and preparation for it.
She did feel happy to see Vikram come back but love appeared too small in front of Olympics. She played subtly with Vikram and tried buying time by not properly responding to Vikram’s proposals.
Days passed, months passed.. Vikram did not let it all go. He continued staying in touch with Mounika. Over a period of time, strings could not hold any more tension and Mounika had to submit to Vikram for his consistent Pursuit of love. Perhaps, she did win the gold medal of life in the form of Vikram and the Olympic medal will too follow soon, we all wished.
That’s Vikram and Monika’s Story for you all. Their wedding bells to ring on May 08-2017
