Jacqueline Fernandez for Brides Today April 2019

April 15, 2019

Brides Today had the dream girl of Bollywood Jacqueline Fernandez as their April cover girl adorning “vintage” cocktail gowns and traditional looks picked out by fashion editor Shaurya Athley. Hair and makeup artist Daniel Bauer did a Brigitte Bardot hairdo and a 50’s eyeliner to bring up vintage glam!

The shoot required to be set outdoors, amidst a summer tropical exotic garden. Minimal botanical decor and antique furniture were tailored to match tropical wedding vibes that Editor Nupur Mehta was hoping to achieve. The regular Bungalow gardens were transformed into a magical, exotic botanical space by decorator Devika Sakhuja in no time. Jacqueline was adorned with elegant dresses by JADE by Monica & Karishma throughout the shoot.

When shooting outdoors the constant change of light or bad sun position have their own sets of challenges in having to control and block natural light and set up lights on and so on. The lighting team I work with is a bunch of magicians I’ve often thought. Even with the language barrier, they understand what I want to do and they nail it every time.

It is always fun to shoot with  Jacqueline. She is always in great energy and delivers 200% so she makes it very easy for the entire team to deliver their best also. The shoot in its entirety had a very rustic chic vibe to it. Organic greens & crystal jewels set the elegant tone we were hoping to get.

Conde Nast Traveller x Sabyasachi April 2019
This shoot was a very exciting shoot for me. I had wanted to go to Seychelles ever since I was a child and as a photographer I discovered paradise. For me personally, I love to shoot with natural light and nothing more and Desroches gave me the absolutely perfect scenery for that.
Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan for Filmfare 2019
I have been working with both Varun and Alia for quite some time now. I have to say that this was probably our most mature collaboration so far. They are both extremely hard working and it was so amazing to see them grow. The confidence of both of them on this particular shoot was so amazing to witness

I shot Bollywood superstar Ranveer Singh for the Grazia India Cover March 2019 edition. I have worked with Ranveer several times in the past, he's a good friend of mine, his energy is explosive and rather contagious. His presence lifts everyone in the room
