When you’re in training phase of your first job, you never imagine your future husband is sitting a few rows behind you. When Rajiv and Shreela first met, they attended training together, but remained friends of friends. Shreela was shy, Rajiv was her outgoing counterpart, but they each enjoyed their opposite ends of the social spectrum.
They’re simply fabulous and it was an honor documenting their love…
