My work year began in Scotland, for Kaajal and Shailesh's wedding. For a cold and windy day it was probably the most comfortable I've ever been. Having spoken to the only online before, Kaaji and Lesh made me feel welcome and part of the gang straight away. Their wonderful family and friends were probably some of the warmest people I've met and it was the perfect day to begin what came to be a wonderful season!
Being Indian, Kaajal and Shailesh were planning a big Indian wedding back home, but wanted to get away with the closest and fondest and have a special civil ceremony, just for them, and chose me to capture this day. They chose the Dumbarton Registry for the event and the Falls of Falloc, where Lesh proposed, to have some pictures taken. My day was supposed to be short and quick - only a few hours for the civil wedding and subsequent photos, but I just couldn't get myself to leave and stop taking pictures of the both of them, their loved ones, and their happiness, so when I got back to my hostel later that evening, I came to think this is exactly why I love doing what I do: because of people like these two! They are in love, and happy, and my goodness they sure are perfect for each other! How can one want for more?
I could probably write a lot more about this, but I'll let the images to the talking -and their smiles, too!
