A few days after my sister’s shaadi; my entire family was sitting up with their jammies on, covers up our laps, lazily shelling peanuts with everyone’s eyes fixed on the OLED TV, binge-watching the unedited shots from my sister’s wedding. The next moment I remember we were all rolling on the floor with fits of laughter which left us at the verge of ulcerative colitis (bear with me, all ya medicos). A shot had popped up where my phupho was devouring on a huge chicken boti, while my phuphaa was rocking my little, crying cousin in the back.
The picture had its immediate effect on my phupho; she had turned crimson red while we yearned to catch our breaths. In that moment I had realized how photographers make our weddings memorable, they capture a short-lived moment into a pool of infinity. If you want to go minimalist on your wedding day, at least be a minimalist with a photographer. Here’s why:
1 – Photographers capture the sacredness of a moment where one is so full of their own emotions they forget to tune into expressions and emotions of others. Through these captured moments, one can revisit the moments and emotions they missed.

2 – In my case, all those drone cameras act as the ultimate phuphos of all our phuphos and visit each cubbyhole to bring to us their secret activities (with their plate of biryani) and give us fits of laughter later.
3 – If you happen to be the nerd of the family with your oversized retro glasses, you are able to discover all the people (and potential rishtas) through all the pictures and videos.
4 – We were miles ahead of the generations which have passed before us, in terms of lifestyle and traditions, but then suddenly our Ami’s lehnga choli, enormous jhumkas and bright lip colours made a come-back on desi weddings. All thanks to the photographers with their reel cameras we were able to rediscover and flaunt 1990’s fashion. Our succeeding generation should always be able to take throwbacks of our moments.
5 – If life gives you a few lemons in your wedded life, you can quickly head to your TV set and rewind all those twirls and qabool hai’s and joyous tears to sugar up your lemonade and restore the intimacy together. It would always bring you back to a sense of closeness towards your partner.
So, if you were planning to skip a professional photographer on your big day, think twice now. Some occasions are worth spending a few bucks on.
