Indian weddings are a celebration of a lifetime. They contain various beautiful traditions, ceremonies, and rituals from one state to another right across north-south-east-west. However, capturing these moments is essential for those who want to cherish them for their lifetime and with Indian weddings becoming a popular global phenomenon and alluring the western culture a right kind of candid photographer is needed to portray Indian wedding culture to the world. So, today we have got a chance to interview Mr. Vinay Choithani, a candid photographer and director of Wedding Velvet who is based in Jaipur, the pink city of India.
Wedamor – It gives us immense pleasure to have you here, so let’s start by knowing a little about Wedding Velvet and how it came into existence?
Wedding Velvet – Thanks for inviting us for the interview and it really feels great to be here and share our journey with the people through Wedamor. To begin with, Wedding Velvet was started in 2013, it is a joint venture with Waheguru Events (1983), and founded by Mr. Vinay Choithani who started his career as an Aerial Photographer and lead to become one of the Best Wedding Candid Photographer in less than 5 Years, with specialization in Cinematic Wedding Films and Candid Photography across the world.
Wedamor – Kudos, good to hear that, so what inspired you or pulled you towards wedding photography?
Wedding Velvet – Photography is our hobby, it’s our passion, coming to the weddings, a wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. There is nothing more gratifying than photographs that don’t just document but capture a string of magical moments that make up a wedding. This is not a matter that one should take lightly. You, your partner, your family and one day your children will look at these images repeatedly as the years go by. They will serve as a record of a time in your life that you will cherish forever.
