There’s no place like home.
Sahil and Parvaty’s post-wedding photoshoot by Journeys by Ram captures romance in the everyday. Eschewing exotic locations and extravagant backdrops, the couple nestled in their living room, were cozy in their backyard and loved-up in their hood for an actual, real-life depiction of Happily Ever After.
How We Met
I was doing my masters in Florida and he was working in Washington DC when my mother created a profile for me on Shaadi.com. One day she called to give me his credentials. Little did I know that I was going to find my best friend.
We connected via email, exchanged numbers and set sail. Our friendship turned into romance quickly and I couldn’t have been happier. His was the only profile I ever saw. Being an extremely shy guy, his response to my “I love you” was “The feeling is mutual” and I am so glad that we have been rocking “mutually” ever since!
Post Wedding Shoot
Due to our busy wedding schedule, we didn’t get a chance to do a dedicated photo-shoot. But we were in luck. Seven months later, Ram dropped into Washington for a photography workshop. He was excited to try out some new techniques and methods. The aim was to get the most natural and genuine moments and so there literally was no jazzing it up even a bit. “Wear what Sahil and Parvaty wear on a cold day like this,” he said. And that’s what we did.
The best part is that the people in the pictures are who we genuinely are. Being in each other’s company brings us happiness like nothing else, and we’re so glad that that’s exactly what shows in the pictures.
