Default A petrolhead's pre-wedding shoot!

A petrolhead's pre-wedding shoot!-_k8a6217.jpg
Let me go honey!

So all this started on whatsapp, I had been terrible with sending out 'formal' invites to my friends on my engagement and having learnt my lesson I sent invitations for my wedding well in advance. In this process, I heard back from Ronny Sequera a dear friend and fellow Street Triple owner. He had a crazy idea for doing an awesome petrolhead photo shoot and asked if I would be interested, hell yeah I said. But as many of us who are married know that it is very very expensive so I had no budget for this exercise. He told me not to worry and said will figure something out. A few days later he reached back and said he has gotten a sponsor for this and we start figuring out how to execute.

I really wanted to do the shoot at BIC but unfortunately, it didn't work out. I would rather not get into the details because it was surely frustrating dealing with BIC personell.

Logistically it was 2 subjects, 1 photographer, 1 assistant, 1 hari, 1 makeup guy. Plus I got my driver and younger brother along to help with all the logistics. There was a pajero with all the equipment and a verna backup car. The Street Triple and BMW were the real stars of the show honestly.

From the start, I knew that this shoot will be typical Ronny style which is glam. The attire chosen was our engagement clothes (you can easily notice that I don't fit into that well anymore). Anyways I'll let the pictures do the talking.

This road was in a remote location which basically leads to nowhere. So we were able to close off a little section and divert traffic (mostly tractors) to the other lane:

Big props to Ronny for getting this whole thing together. I had a blast doing this, can't say the same for Deepika who suffered in the 8'c weather. Also, this was done just days before the wedding. Thanks for taking the time to go through the thread, hope you enjoyed the pictures.

First of all congratulations and you are a true petrolhead

Its indeed an unique photo-shoot. You remind me of a friend who had insisted of going to his wedding on his bike (his family didn't allow him to do that)

On a serious note, its actually good to see that your fiancee willingly came for the shoot and also agreed to do the last one which looks scary in the pic itself

Congrats! quickdraw

Very Creative and lovely pictures. Specially like that burnout shot. How did you convince your better half to stand there while you rev the bike?

Now I have seen everything.
A direct question requiring an honest answer and a prayer that your better half doesn't see this. How hard was it for you when your fiancee placed her shoes on your bike's front mudguard for the photoshoot?
True love is fine and all, but shoe on paint is truly hearbreaking.
