Have Fun

After all, it is your wedding photo shoot and when you have fun, it is reflected in the photographs. Whether it’s being goofy, using props or just sharing inside jokes with your partner, having fun is an absolute must when it comes to your wedding photography fun.

Choose a place that makes you feel at ease and not anxious! If you are scared of heights, steer clear of skyscrapers or hill tops, no matter how romantic they may be! Your environment is one of the first things that will help feel comfortable and you must get your wedding photography just right!

Focus on Your Partner

Focusing on your partner and the other people that may be present, will put your mind at ease and you will be visibly more comfortable for your wedding photography. Forget that the photographer is there and he/she will be able to capture all those gorgeous candid moments!

A Lehenga With A Love Story To Tell?

This bride wanted something unique and memorable to wear. Well, that’s exactly what she got!

Being a stylist, Astha really wanted to wear something exclusive on her wedding day and fortunately, she had resources. Her mother Anu Hora, the designer behind Anu Aastha Couture took the vision of her dream lehenga and started to work on it. She and Astha’s brother Arpan, who is also an artist, sketched all the tracings and managed to weave Astha and Aziz’s memories into the lehenga. Her inspiration was Kresha Bajaj’s lehenga.


 

“I am Astha, I have fallen in love with a man who has always embraced the innocence in me. We fell in love in school; and have grown up together supporting each other through thick and thin.

Aziz is a beautiful soul, each day I learn something from him. He has been a scholar, an engineer and I am a crazy, wild, creative person. We are two different people with completely contrasting fields of interest. We had mostly stayed apart throughout our relationship of seven years. Long distance relationships are painful. We also experienced bitterness and fights, everyone does, but what kept us together was our undying affection towards each other. Our marriage was a dream come true affair, because after years of pain we were finally ready to unite our souls together forever.

We never found wise to spend crores of money on our wedding, but we still managed to make it unique in its own way.”
– The Bride


 

The pictures on the lehenga depict their runaway trip to Goa that means a lot to Astha. The two were supposed to get married in August 2016 and move to Canada, where Aziz worked. But since her Visa to Canada got denied twice, this couldn’t happen. The wedding got postponed and after another year of not being together, they felt like they just needed a getaway to be with each other. And so they went to Goa and spent beautiful moments in the hope that he’d be able to come back soon. And he did! He chose love over everything else.

“I didn’t know he loved me so much that he would leave everything behind for us. It’s very rare to find such love. And once found should be treasured for life.” – Astha
