When I started planning my wedding, I was looking for a photographer who will stay away from cliché poses and capture the true essence of the occasion. As soon as I saw Lavanya’s photographs on Instagram, I knew she was the one. Her tagline is ‘documenting your offbeat wedding’ and she stays true to that. Mine was a traditional Muslim wedding with absolutely no frills and jazz and I was quite apprehensive thinking about how it will turn out in front of the camera.
During my first call with Lavanya, I told her that she’ll have to find her moments and oh boy, she did exactly that. I received Read More my photographs few weeks after the wedding and I was blown away by the results. She is your girl if you want to capture those raw emotions of the wedding. I can’t stop looking at the photographs and no matter how many times I see them, I experience this inexplicable rush of emotions.

Getting photographed on your big day can be very stressful and I have seen photographers being in your face all day which can add to the irritation. And if you are a camera conscious person like me, you can forget about enjoying your wedding. With Lavanya, you’ll hardly realise she is there and yet she is everywhere covering those small details. She also has some handy tricks up her sleeves to make you and your partner feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition to her impressive photography skills, Lavanya is also very warm and friendly human, extremely enthusiastic and driven. She also acted as my bridesmaid at one point, pinning up my bridal dress and patiently listening to my never-ending tirade. So, don’t think twice before booking her if you want timeless and classic shots of your special occasion.

Trigger warning: A few tears and lump in the throat are expected when you first look at the photographs.

My husband and I travelled to his hometown of Mumbai from Boston in Feb 2020 to get married. We spoke to Lavanya a few times before traveling and I knew she was the best fit for us.

Her style of photography was exactly what we wanted; she captured so many candid, incredible moments between us and our guests but you hardly even noticed she was there! She was patient and so kind. Many of our friends from the USA travelled with us and she was incredible to all of them too and acted as so much more than a photographer, but a guide to all of the events which was much appreciated!

I would Read More highly recommend Lavanya to anyone looking for a great photographer that captures the true essence and emotion of your special day(s). She was incredible!
