This engagement was an intimate one, celebrated only with the closest of family and friends. Veena and Rachit live in the US, and had come by for a short while for their engagement. So apart from being a celebratory function, it also served as a fun reunion with family.

It was a pleasure to shoot this session, partly because of the wonderful couple and their kind and charming families, and partly because I was the only photographer around. Being the only person documenting a special occasion always helps in creating my best work, because the couple is not fazed by an army of papparazzi style photographers following them everywhere they go and they can really enjoy themselves. When they enjoy themselves unhindered, there’s always more wonderful stuff to capture, and I can do that in the most creative way without having to worry about 5 other camera wielding people blocking my way. Here’s hoping more and more couple choose to have a less chaotic team photographing their weddings and engagements!
