And The Story Goes….

I was flattered when Vijeeta requested that I be the one to take photos for her upcoming engagement about a year ago. A year, that’s right, she was confident I had the chops to get the job done and booked my time way in advance.

Not a wedding photographer by any yardstick, there were huge expectations to live up to. Events and ceremonies such as these are often difficult to manage and Murphy’s law suggests that you’re always in the wrong place at the right time and end up shooting the back of someone’s head instead.

I guess all things being equal, I knew what I was in for and I can only hope the images have a story to tell.

So here’s the story of Sujev & Vijeeta as I saw it unfold….

Frame 01: It all starts with a blinged out pair of shoes & a shimmering dress.

A befitting swansong for my photography work. Perhaps I’ll once again pick up my camera for some behind the scenes shots come September next year for the wedding.
