Pranika & Jasmine were classmates at college. It wasn’t loved at first sight, instead, Pranika didn’t seem to like Jasmine. Gradually, they became best friends & three years later Pranika confessed her love for him. But Jasmine friend-zoned Pranika because of his family constraints. Love brewed and ultimately two years later on their graduation both started dating. The two dated for another 5 long years before they finally managed to convince Jasmine’s family to agree to their marriage.
How Pre-Wedding Shoot in Kashmir was planned.
Pranika says “ I had always heard stories about the beauties of the valley and had always imagined myself and my partner witnessing it together. Jasmine knew about this wish of mine and then there was no other place but Kashmir for our pre-wedding shoot”. The shoot was planned over a span of three days, with a hope for good weather in January, nature had its own plan it snowed all three days. Shooting in the snow made it challenging for the team to shoot it but Videovala team and the couple pulled it off. Pranika recalls,” I was barefoot in -6 degrees and walking on snow, but looking at the team my supportive partner I pulled it off very easily. We wanted something that is different from the usual, something very grand and close to Yashraj movies”

Experience Shooting for Pre-wedding in Snow Laden Kashmir Valley
We were quite determined to get those perfect shots despite the fact we knew snow will not let us take what we had planned for. Pranika was determined to shoot barefoot as planned, the team insisted on wearing shoes but definitely that would have taken away the essence in the pictures.
“My clothes were wet from snow, the make-up was melting into my eyes making them hurt so bad. But, this was my dream and I couldn’t let it go. With my partner and the videowala team’s support, I could go through this and bring out the best pictures.” ..Pranika
Well, these pictures are worth all the challenges and efforts and definitely memories made along the way will be treasure forever.
