We had been Manognya’s Dive instructors about two years ago and immediately hit it off. On the long drive to the training dive site we had heavily involved discussions about Northern vs. Southern Indian food and more importantly, how to make it. South Asian cuisine has long been one of my favorites and I was about to get schooled in the regional differences between North and South India, how could I resist? A melting pot of diversity herself, Manognya hails from Southern India, calls Singapore home and lived between Las Vegas and Iowa and when Varun popped the big question on her, she relocated once again to sunny Las Vegas.
A happier couple you won’t find, and while we spent several days with Manognya being very animated about life underwater, none of her expressions or mannerisms compare to how she lights up when Varun is around. A man who just becomes buoyant when Mano is near, Varun is one of the coolest people you’ll ever meet. Any guy who likes his Lassi salted and his food hotter than the sun has my vote.
We’re very proud to be photographing their upcoming wedding next month, for now see for yourself about how these two just glow in each others presence.
