Timeless Durban wedding photographer
Jivesh and Aditha
Durban wedding photographer | Jay Pillay Photography
Jivesh and Aditha are a power couple of note, both having reached the pinnacle of business, entrepreneurship and leadership. They are also dedicated exponents of Hindu culture development in South Africa and abroad. Add to this being trained dancers, models and having a private pilot licence means they regularly have something to write home about. Despite their achievements though, you would never know it during an interaction; their humility speaks volumes about the type of people they are. Jivesh and Aditha secured my services on our first call with each other so the pressure was on to deliver based on the trust they placed in me.
The first time we met was for their engagement photo-shoot at uShaka Marine world. From the first few snaps, I could see they were naturals and knew the session would be seamless. It was more flow posing from my side and we had the beautiful sunset at Ushaka to add to the richness of their photographs.
Next on my photographic journey with them was their Sangeet pre-wedding function. I have to say this was a thrilling experience. They both entered to Bollywood music and put on a jaw-dropping choreographed performance fit for the IIFA Awards.
Their wedding was held at Tongaat and was a vibrant affair. Aditha was staying in the beautiful Zinkwazi Lagoon Lodge and I managed to sneak in some quick portraits of her in the morning before we proceeded to the wedding venue. Aditha was carried to the stage in an eloquently decorated dholi and the wedding rituals commenced. Beforehand, we knew that there would not be enough time for a couple’s creative shoot so we agreed to have this within the next month. Given a picturesque location at sunset with Jivesh and Aditha as the bridal couple, I’m sure the imagery will be nothing short of epic…Watch this space.
