Wedding is the most memorable occasion not for the couple only but for the whole sweet family to celebrate. It is a combination and commitment of two persons who promise to live by each other under any circumstances. The sacramental nature of marriage makes it not only a physical bond but an emotional bond, in the deepest meanings, a spiritual bond between two souls who love each other. It’s a beautiful and sacred relation where two people accept each other with all their faults and weaknesses based on true understanding and form a bond of longevity and stability.
A Pakistani wedding is a festive celebration followed by a lot of fun between the families of bride and groom. Every other member of the family look forward to this festive occasion involving various ceremonies and traditions like engagement, dholki, mayoon, barat and walima. It provides both the families with the chance to shower their love and joy on the couple to be wed by presenting them with a lot of precious gifts and heartily support.
Wedding is once in a lifetime thing and every couple want this day to be the most memorable one in their entire life. Few years back in Pakistan, it was not a common practice to book an event photographer on weddings. Yes, few formal studio shots were planned with rigid and unnatural poses in dim light and there was no entanglement of emotions, feelings and themes. Local studio guys used to take some shots where you were made to have a compulsory smile on your face while standing straight like you were attending a school assembly.
But now, time has changed. Almost all the couples today spend their time and money to have a trendy and memorable event. They even book an event management team for their special day who chalk out the photography for the whole event. They discuss each and every aspect related to their event with their photographer whether it be the color of their dresses, the background theme or the decorations.
In Pakistan, the trend of wedding photography is on its peak these days. It has provided young, enthusiastic and talented photographers of Pakistan a chance to utilize their talent by capturing happy moments of sweet couples on their big day. These photographers depict joy, sorrow, happiness, sadness, wonder, simplicity and a lot more from the occasion in their photographs. The emotions captured beautifully in these photographs with the help of latest technology make these photos priceless and invaluable for the next generations to come. That’s the reason couples always want these special moments to be captured by the famous and expert photographers.
