A Hindu Wedding

For 30 years wedding photography was never a part of my photo business. I managed to avoid it not because I disliked brides and grooms but because of the way they usually liked their weddings photographed. The photographic style for many years could only be described as cheesy.

Couples are now asking for a very nice blend of story telling and portraiture. Having discovered that my style of shooting for my corporate clients was exactly that, it made sense for brides and grooms to include me in their search for a wedding photographer.

The photos below of a Hindu wedding I photographed this year showed me the significance of hands as ceremonial instruments. They very nicely helped to tell the story of this couple’s life and and their family’s commitment to them.

This is a very good time for couples getting married in 2010 to find a photographer. Dates are filling but many are still available. A gallery of my wedding photography can be seen here and an informational PDF may be downloaded which includes pricing for photography, prints and coffee-table books.
