Vermont – the best place to get married!

With the 2010 wedding season approaching, I’ve been finishing up album and print orders from last season and I was reminded how lucky I am to call Vermont home. I try not to take it for granted, and I credit the wonderful couples and the amazing wedding locations with reminding me how beautiful it is here. I wanted to share some of what makes this state special by featuring photographs from my favorite wedding venues from around Vermont. 

Shelburne Farms on beautiful Lake Champlain is right at the top of the list.

The farm began as a model agricultural estate in  1886 by Dr. William Seward and Lila Vanderbilt Webb.  Today, the farm is a non-profit environmental education center and a National Historic Landmark.

Welcome – My first post!

Welcome to my new online home. I’ve just launched this new, redesigned blog / website in hopes of connecting with more people around my photography and the photography world in general. I’ll be posting my own work, as well as interesting work I’ve found online, interesting trends in photography and multimedia, and some technical information and how-to explanations.

I’m currently gearing up for the 2010 wedding season, and I thought I’d post a handful of my favorite photographs from the 2009 season.

And please take a moment to visit Rajan Chawla Photography on Facebook!

Hey Raj! This looks fantastic! I love seeing your beautiful playful photos nice and big! I like your logo’s southwest color scheme. The “Pink-style” performance shot hanging in the circus
wrap has lovely light from within. Nice job capturing the purple ceiling too!
