“Men lose all the material things they leave behind them in this world, but they carry with them the gift of Charity.”

– Francis of Assisi

 

 

Our sole purpose of being born Human is that we have the ability to empathise and understand the pain and suffering of others. We have the power to make a change in the way the world is run. Identifying the needs of the less fortunate and helping them to reach their bare necessities of living standards is our social responsibility and moral obligation.

Children and senior citizen are the ones who are the most helpless in situations of social inequality and societal slander and abuse. Children are not cared for, simply because either the family is in no financial condition to support them or because one or more members of the family are influenced by drugs and violence. They are pitifully roaming the streets, bright children with sparkling eyes full of untapped potential and intelligence- who are capable of being the next doctor, pilot, influencer, president that India needs. Alas, all of this is pointless unless they have a way out of their situation.

To help such unfortunate children of our country, MGA has collaborated with the Educational NGO- ‘We Need You’ to do our bit in fulfilling our social responsibilities.

This NGO is currently operational in Ghansoli and Turbe.

 

Here, we provide education and teach practical skills not only to children, but also to women of all ages to empower them and give a second source of income to these families.

Women can choose to be trained in various make-up and hairstyling courses to help the less educated ones to earn income with their practical skills. Tailoring classes also help provide an alternate source of income as well as a very useful skill.

An up-to-date and well-equipped computer lab allows for training in various computer-related courses too; thus prepping them for the modern age of technology.

Teaching the children life skills through various entertaining forms like art and crafts; drawing and dancing helps them retain their knowledge as well as find the interest to actively attend our sessions. This unconventional method of learning has increase our student retention-rate and proven to be very useful. Activities like swimming and summer camps have increased the levels of fitness and made the children supple and increased their stamina and health.

 

Guest lecturers for General Knowledge sessions have helped pique the interest of students as the lecturers are well-versed in both their fields as well as in dealing with students.

We have allotted volunteers all over the slums of Turbe, where every individual manages the studies of ten children and we currently have over thirty active volunteers. This has greatly impacted the lives of these children for the better. All of this work is manage by the ‘We Need You’ society.

We urge you to be a part of this wonderful initiative and show your support either through volunteering or financial aid. After all, only we have the power to bridge the vast gap between the rich and the poor in India; and ensure that our brothers and sister get the basic standard of living that they deserve.

About four months ago, I had the pleasure of having Supriya, my client, visit me to discuss her wedding day photography. The almost two-hour long conversation was filled with her gushing about her wedding day and you could see the excitement sparkling in her eyes. She had already come to me with a clear idea of what she wanted and knew exactly what she had to ask for, right down to the references and sample pictures. Like any excited bride, her energy was fully focussed on the task at hand. Her infectious excitement thrilled us, and we started working on the photography and videography in the earnest. We would regularly maintain contact to ensure that things were going on-plan and on-schedule. We made sure that our ideas matched and that the execution would be flawless.

 

 

Supriya played a major role in shaping the whole wedding scenario. Her enthusiasm coupled with our expertise was a magnificent brainchild of ideas. The flow of the ceremony, the venue and the theme was all discussed in earnest. This was going to be one grand wedding, we could tell!

A part of our research pre-wedding included visiting the venue and checking the perfect stage backdrop, stage décor and even stage props. This was to ensure that we had the best possible aesthetics on her Big Day.

For their Haldi ceremony, we made sure to guide the decorations for the event which was to be held in their houses, so that their vision of a perfect fairy-tale wedding would be captured in the photographs. After brainstorming for quite some time, we got two perfect sets of décor ideas for them.

 

 

Finally, the Big day arrived.

Our real work started off, amid all the chaos of a wedding. Their venue entry, portraits, blissful and enchanting morning wedding rituals were a captured without a pause, followed by a break in the afternoon. We decided to utilise the break to take a candid interview with the bride and her groom. To avoid having any unnecessary background noise, we conducted the interview in the groom’s car.

 

 

 

 

 

They were asked questions about their relationship before the wedding and recalling some moments were surprising and nostalgic to them both. They laughed at the realisation that these will make for some great stories for them. This was followed by the main wedding rituals, starting from Mangalashtak. Supriya was so excited that she couldn’t even stop smiling! Sudesh was over the moon himself! It was a moment of celestial binding of two souls in love and we made sure to capture the quintessential frames to their full glory! Soon, after the amazing wedding rituals and some stunning wedding photography, it was time for a glittery reception.

 

 

 

 

It was a heavenly ceremony and the celebrations were very familiar and war. We at MGA would like to thank Supriya and Sudesh for trusting us with their wedding day!

A MAKE-UP ARTIST AT WEDDING

Every wedding comes off as beautiful and flawless. Everything from the decorations to the venue, from the food to the clothes- weddings are awesome! But there are people who work tirelessly behind-the- scenes to make this day so special. More often than not, we tend to overlook these people and their importance! For example, the makeup artists. Especially those of the bride. Can you imagine the magnitude of her work’s importance? Everything about the bride must be perfect, right from the contouring of her face to the way her hair falls on her shoulders. And such is the artist’s dedication that we remain mesmerized by the beauty of the bride. Moments like when the artist is capturing the tone of the face, or when she is lining her eyes… bringing out their beauty… these need to be captured with a tender touch so as to bring out the essence of true talent. At MGA we believe that capturing such moments of work and beauty is of immense importance in any wedding album. We aspire to be skilled at such rarity and give you the pleasure of aesthetic value to your eyes !

MAKE UP ARTIST – SHRADDHA YADAV

Being a professional make-up artist, it all started for me from makeup designing and trials for the wedding. The interesting part that I found about this wedding was that Akshata’s mother wanted her to look like a South-Indian bride with a Maharashtrian touch! So after deliberation and careful understanding of the bride’s and her mother’s wishes, we decided to settle for a traditional South-Indian bridal look with a Maharashtrian nath completing it! She wore a beautiful peony-pink and yellow saree with silver and gold prints.

After this natural and glowing look, we planned and executed poppy-blue eye makeup with wine red lips which beautifully complemented her stunning reception lehenga, which gave it an over-all playful and youthful appearance. It was a contrast colour- combination.

On the wedding day, doing hair and makeup with perfection becomes very hectic and turbulent, but I would like to thank Akshata tai and her family for such hospitality and cooperation. It is a marathon to finish the job beautifully in 2-3 hours, as there are so many aspects of the bride to take care of! After Akshata, came the groom. Yogesh did not need much- just a soft hair-do and a touch-up of the face.

Beautiful moments have most beautiful Stories

Being a part of the festivities of a wedding ceremony is everybody’s dream. But being the actual partaker of a wedding is a scary ordeal indeed! Everyone expects the groom to be relaxed, joyful and happy. In reality, the Groom is one of the most nervous persons involved in a wedding! All those new responsibilities, commitments and promises can leave one disoriented and confused. In the middle of settling into this new lifestyle, often we photographers find the Groom especially at a very vulnerable and quiet moment to himself. And this shot when captured in the right manner can convey all that words fail to express. As is seen in this image, the Groom is enjoying and relishing a quiet moment to himself amid all the hustle and bustle. All the weight of responsibilities on his shoulder seem to have been lifted for this instance as he gazes at a serene image of his future with his beautiful wife. This little gesture of a quiet smile and far-away eyes show what it is he looks for in a marriage- love, comfort and understanding. This click speaks not only of the Groom shown here but of Grooms by and at large.

The most beautiful part about every wedding is the preparatory phase, where the couple gets ready. That is what sets the feels for the whole wedding- the aura of anticipation in the dressing room, the artistic way in which the makeup artist captures the beauty of the face and paints magic on it to make them look flawless!

Arranged marriages are said to be slowly fading out of fashion because people now believe in fully knowing the person whom they are to be wedded to and deciding their future for themselves. However, the institution isn’t all that horrifying either. Look at your ancestors, or even your parents who may have had one. There is no love lost between them! And take a look at this cute couple, laughing away to glory- would you believe that theirs was an arranged marriage? This picture was clicked at a very natural and casual moment between them, when the laugh was genuine and beautiful. And all we need for such memorable pictures is the right timing and a good sense of people and their atmosphere. It isn’t easy to understand such subtleties of a couple but that is what you can expect from us, a professional approach with underlying shades of emotions and rapt attention to details. And pictures like these make you believe that love is born out of a mutual understanding and respect of the other person and can be found anywhere, if only one knows where to look!

Her Wedding Day is one of the most important days for a bride. Everything on that day has to be perfect, has to be flawless. Everything- including her. So much time and efforts go into choosing the perfect dress, the correct makeup artists, the right hairstyle… and then there is the pressure to look angelic on the day! Everyone in the crowd always longs for a look at the bride… they hold their breath in anticipation for the entry of the glowing beauty. And while all this unfolds, she sits quietly and calmly behind the scenes and puts those finishing touches to her look for the day- the Bride. Every flutter of her beautiful eyelashes, every stroke of her brush against her cheeks is a silent message saying wait- I will be there and I will be everything you ever imagined- to her other half. And then she arises from her seat like the Adonis, and captures the eyes of everyone with her charisma. The elegance and importance of these moments behind-the- scenes cannot be overlooked and we at MGA aspire to capture every little detail of such vulnerability and beauty.

We travelled with the wedding party to Jalgaon for this beautiful wedding ceremony. The groom wanted to take the holy vows in his village and so began the two-day celebration. Right from the Haldi to the Reception, it was a grand affair indeed! There were innumerable moments where we could capture beautiful stills of a fairy-tale wedding, this being one of our personal favourites. Right as they were leaving the hall for dinner- there it was. The most perfect shot. The glowing bride with her shy smile and the proud groom, leading his lady by the hand! This happy couple got their picture-frame perfect click. Why wait- get yours too! Be it a destination wedding or a traditional one down to the roots, we will be there every step of the way to ensure that not a smile, not a wayward glance is left to the memory-immortalise your story with MGA!

There is something timeless and precious about the institution of marriage. It is a sacred vow between two people- a vow to always be there for each other, through thick and thin, and always love and respect each other. And such a precious vow must be sealed with something equally precious and beautiful, which is where the tradition of the wedding ring comes in. Throughout history, a number of religions have been practising the tradition of sealing the sacred vows with a ring, and India is no stranger to that tradition. The exchange of wedding rings is a statement of love and loyalty that the newlyweds make to each other, and such an important and beautiful moment it truly is! Which is why, the exchange of rings becomes a prime feature of the whole wedding ritual. For this, choosing the perfect ring is also something the couple frets over- how to choose that perfect instrument that showcases your love for your better half? Through this click from us at MGA, you can see that this couple sure got it right! The perfect ring to offset the picturesque wedding, and the perfect click to showcase the same! Why wait for your own? Contact us to get your dream clicked flawlessly!

Your relationship doesn’t begin or end with the wedding ceremony. The ceremony is but a small step along the way, a small and immensely beautiful step. But there is a before to that too- a pre-wedding shoot. This is where you let your hair down and be yourself completely, no terms attached. The both of you can frolic around and get captured in the most fun and innocent way. Especially on a festive day, like this couple did! A festive, Holi-themed pre-wedding shoot. Such shoots will enable you to portray your love for each other in a fun, cheerful and casual way, resulting in some beautiful clicks. After all, who doesn’t love a festive atmosphere? And it becomes all the more celebratory when you are with your loved one. Add a dash of colour to your album memories with such stunning visuals of outdoor or festival pre-wedding shoots with us at MGA. We understand exactly what you expect and hand-deliver it to you in a cute, gift-wrapped kind of way.

A nervous glance into the mirror… Consciously patting down hair that is already perfectly done up… The bride shivers with anticipation and butterflies before stepping onto the mandap.

Often it is the behind- scenes of a wedding that are the most chaotic and most happening! The rush of bridesmaids, hairdressers, make-up artists, family members… one would think the bride and groom would collapse from all the anxiety! But strangely they are the ones most preoccupied in their own secret thoughts… about the immediate ceremony, about the post- wedding details, how their lives will be different now… and these immersed-in-thoughts moments constitute the most honest and pure pictures. As you glance back to reminisce about that perfect wedding day, wouldn’t you want to remember all those little details about that dress? About how your mother’s eyes filled with happy tears and your father beamed with pride when they saw you ready for the big leap? About all those who helped you look like something out of a fairy-tale for your Big Day? Often these pictures are the prettiest stills of the whole wedding album and we at MGA ensure that younot only get a good still; but that you get the Perfect one.


Heramb & Kirti

_DSC5555-201

One of our most memorable work was with this couple- Kirti and Heramb. No one was more excited about the wedding than Kirti was- and as well it should be! She personally was overlooking each and every aspect of the wedding and took great pleasure in organizing the whole wedding flawlessly! And when it came to the photography and designing of her wedding- you could say, watch out for the bride-boss! Her perfectionism and professional attitude not only helped make our work easier, but it also provided us a clear idea of how she wanted her picture album to look. She guided us through her wants in the album, interacted with us in a way that made it crystal-clear to us about how to go about clicking her wedding pictures! This enabled us to be focussed on the exact qualities she wanted in her pictures and thus her album could be made perfect for her! It is a refreshing experience to work with clients who are so open to us and share their beautiful love- stories with us; because this helps us shape our work according to their individual tastes! Communication between the client and photographer is crucial and this was seen very clearly in this case by the quality of great wedding pictures we got that day!

An essential pre-requisite for any relationship is communication. When there is open and honest communication between people, the relationship becomes strong, healthy and beautiful. Communication can be in many forms- even a little mischievous gossip between the couple about their peculiar relatives! It is the little things like these that dissolve the nervousness and tense atmosphere between the two and make for some light-hearted banter. And as you can see from this picture, these lovebirds lost no time in pulling the legs of their friends and relatives! Right from the mandap, they chose to establish a relationship based on friendship and laughter to add colour to their lives! And if this isn’t the most beautiful part about a spousal relationship, then what is? With MGA, you can rest assured that your wedding album will come alive with colour and the resonance of your lively personalities- because that is what we aim for, and that is what we deliver!


Swapnil & Trupti

The eyes convey what words will never be able to express… what indeed can be more beautiful than a silent and fleeting look between the newly- wed couple that will convey a thousand unspoken words between them? This couple show that they are very-much in love with each other and that they are looking forward to their life together- all by this one glance at each other across the celebrations around them! The laughter in their eyes and that mischief playing around their lips show how young-at- heart they are and is a mirror to how perfect their chemistry is! And a great chemistry always calls for a great picture- which is where we come in! This picture was captured at the precise moment that enabled us to show their spousal love. It is the simple beauty of a smile that conveys their whole-hearted love in this picture. Treasure such moments with us at MGA because something so beautiful- should be made immortal, shouldn’t it?


Vikas & Priyanka

Right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of a wedding, there is a calm centre. And over there we find the beautiful humans responsible for everything we are today- our parents. During an important moment of our lives, like a wedding, it is the joy and pride on their faces that we mustn’t miss out on. The love overflowing from the mother’s eyes on seeing her son marrying the girl he loves is something out of a holy book, as seen in this picture. Vikas’s mother was easily the happiest person in the room after the bride and the groom and her smile was infectious, filling the whole room with a tender radiance. We made sure to capture her most vulnerable and gentle moments into our frame, as something the bride and groom can treasure over forever. We at MGA know that beautiful moments happen only because of beautiful people and so we make sure to capture all those wonderful people into your little book of happiness.
