A beautifully 'arranged' marriage: Tripti & Sushant's Wedding Tale
We both firmly believe that marriage is all about finding the right person. What difference does it make whether you meet on your own or are introduced by your parents? So we were both open to the idea of an arranged marriage. What followed was a tasking experience of sifting through numerous pictures and meeting people we had nothing in common with. Being one of the most important things in life, this was difficult and tested our patience. However, we didn't give up. The rest is history.
Last year, our families were introduced to each other by our relatives. We met each other and hit it off immediately. We dated for a few months and discovered that we really liked each other. Though our relationship was primarily long distance, our commitment to make things work outweighed all the roadblocks. And after a point, we decided not to look back.
We thank god for bringing us together and helping us sail through and cannot wait to solidify our commitment by getting married.
My fiancé and I had an year to plan our wedding and therefore, wanted the best of the photographers to cover our wedding. Ours is a joint family with over 200 family members, we had planned our wedding to be an elaborate 11 day affair. My brother-in-law is a brilliant landscape photographer himself and on a photography project in Italy but was helping us finalize our candid wedding photographer.
We went through Lakshya Chawla’s work after a friend recommended him and boy! Weren't we impressed! On talking to him we realized that he understood the challenges that a big fat Rajasthani wedding offers, really well and we knew that he was the perfect guy to cover our wedding. He was very warm and friendly and interacted with as many family members as he could; and made it a point to include everyone in the photographs. Needless to say, the photographs have come out to be incredible and we will treasure them forever. We wish him all the very best for his future.
So keep up the good work Lakshya! And though your work keeps you on your toes, better be available to cover brother-in-law’s and my sister’s weddings respectively, who are next in the line!
About Lakshay Chawla
My photography journey started off in the early days of my graduation from Delhi University as an abstract photographer and eventually ventured into different genres of wedding, event, real estate & band photography. I like doing candid and work collaboratively with my clients to understand their expectations on each assignment. Photography is a creative outlet for me. It’s my passion, also my profession. And it’s not just the click of the shutter and the magic of a great image that drives me to pursue it despite the tough schedules, expensive equipment and depleted savings - it's the faith of my clients to entrust me to capture their most beautiful memories and the sense of accomplishment I derive from each successful assignment.Website
