It was just perfect timing when Jin and Atul from Singapore emailed me about doing a pre-wedding photo shoot in Munnar, Kerala, India. I was actually booked to shoot a two week Yoga and Nutrition tour in Southern Kerala at the same time (pics to follow soon) so it was quite easy for me to make the short trip to meet them in the beautiful Tea Country region of Kerala.
Lush and green, crisp and clean, Tea Country called Munnar is a popular weekend getaway destination for people to escape the heat of much of India. However it was very close to Monsoon season, and unpredictable weather. We met and Jin looked beautiful in her Red wedding Saree. So we were off to the shoot. Within 10 minutes in the car the clouds got very dark moving quickly towards us we figured we would not have much time till the rains! As Jin was planning to wear her Saree for her wedding in Singapore we could not risk it getting wet! We started shooting and within 5 minutes it started to pour! Luckily I was able to meet up with them in the early AM and we set of once again to continue with our shoot! This time Jin wore a beautiful custom made orange and teal traditional Chinese dress. We had fun roaming through the lush green hills of Munnar, thankfully the monsoons held off. Here’s a few of my favorite pics from the shoot….
