I’ve probably mentioned this somewhere on this blog before, but Indian weddings comprise probably half of the weddings that I shoot. It’s an interesting mix of being at the right place at the right time, i.e. knowing what is going on in the ceremony and being prepared for the fact that there are going to be a lot of people on a very small stage.
About eight years ago when I shot my first Hindu Ceremony, I think it was somewhere in Lenasia, don’t quote me on that though, I remember thinking wow, this is so emotional, even the groom is weeping. Stand on the mandap and get a little closer to the fire and when that smoke starts getting in your eyes and you may find that your photographer might be looking a little emotional as well. The trick … wear glasses, and try not to get smoke in your lens.
So everyone obviously arrived on indian time, which meant that I had a couple of extra minutes to shoot Sasha and Rajiv, which made for some amazing pics in the veld outside the venue.
So many more images from Sasha and Rajiv’s very stylish wedding can be found on our facebook page.
