It was completely unexpected when we got Sharon’s email telling us that she’s getting married to her Indian fiance Viresh in South Africa. Yes our first ever Indian wedding, and it’s in South Africa! I got so excited that I packed my best summer clothes because I thought that it’s hot there, but to my surprise it was winter. Perfect! :p
Best part of my African trip other than the safari experience, learning about Indian culture in South Africa and meeting new friends, was definitely “The Plunge”! I brought with me our underwater case for 5d and asked Sharon and Viresh to jump on the pool. The water was freezing!!! It was like melted ice. Three minutes after I got in the pool, i couldn’t continue talking. I was never been that cold in my life. But I say that they did an awesome job by staying calm and smooth in front of the camera and also staying there for another 15 min with Jasmine Wang to do some photos despite of the freezing temperature.
Jet setter – the right word to describe this lovely couple like sleeping in Paris and waking up in Amsterdam. They don’t even know what jet lag is anymore. Sharon is such an inspiration when we get to talk about her travels, how she looks at life and her adventures with Viresh. It was awesome to know how these two different cultures were join together with one thing in common: LOVE. Sharon and Viresh are a perfect match. They’re very sweet with each other and most of the times I see them just gazing and smiling at one another all throughout the trip. It was like watching a real life movie. But hey, I managed to make them their own movie.
All that I can say that love is not just about cultures but its about how it is cultured.
It has been like a dream come true experience!
