The focus and action good shift from one point to other quickly in an Indian wedding. This was the Kanyadan ritual of a South Indian Konkani wedding. And while everyone was focusing on the ritual, on the sidelines the father of the bride was overwhelmed by emotions. And from outside the frame, a hand reached out with a tissue to wipe his tears - the hand of the bride's sister. Glad that I keep an eye on any movements closer to the Mantap, it could completely alter the scene and tell a whole new story.Moments from the Wedding ceremony of Shamala & Sagar that was held at Goa during April 2013.To know more about the weddings that I document, do read the following link, Traditionally, people expect faces to be seen, and eyes to be open for it to be called a photograph. But, it is not the case always. Emotionally charged or evocative images need not always have face. And one of the images that taught me this, was this photograph of a mother and daughter embracing each other after completion of wedding ceremony.Moments from the wedding of Arvind and Divya held at the historic Bhoganandeeshwara temple, near nandi ... Legendary photojournalist Robert Capa had said If you are photographs are not good enough, then you are not close enough. This is sometimes true even in wedding photography. You need to get into the social space of your subjects to capture intimacy. This is a photograph I made during the Vidhai (farewell) of a bride. You can't see faces, but it tells you a story - story of a bride reaching out to her mother as she is leaving, and her mother being held back by her relatives. To get this image I had literary put my head and camera inside the car.Sandeep and Nidhi's wedding photography. The wedding was a mix of two cultures, South Indian and North Indian. Hence it was a delight to cover this unique wedding. The wedding took place at the lawns of Jayamahal Palace on Friday, 10th December 2010. - Nishant Ratnakar most couples asking for pre-wedding portraits or couple portraits made few days before the wedding ceremony. This was a Nikah - muslim wedding. A day before the Nikah during the Mehendi and Pre-wedding ceremonies, the parents had requested the couple that as per traditions they were not to see each other until the Nikah was over. When the groom arrived at the bride's home that evening, I was facing a strange situation - the bride wanted picture of them together, but how do I get a couple portrait when the couple are not supposed to see each other. This moment made me think outside the box! At the intersection of a living room and bedroom, I got the couple standing at a location where I could see them clearly but they could not see themselves. And this picture was made. Till date it remains as one of my personal favorite couple portraits. Very minimalist, but tells a story.Moments from the Nikah (wedding) of Mehnaz and Paul, held at Bangalore during June 2012.
Let us appreciate sense of humour.A photographer must get to know the clients very well. I meet them, get to know their story and understand their personalities. It not only builds a good working relationship, embedding you into their immediate circle, but also lets you anticipate their actions during the wedding. These two were a fun loving couple with a brilliant sense of humour. In midst of their telugu wedding ritual, they got a moment to enact a performance - two boxers at a boxing ring.Moments from the wedding of Pradeep and Akhila, that was held at Bangalore. 17th-18th march, 2012. I make images for people. I am rarely present at the moment when they view the images to know their expressions. Of course their feedback and emails say a lot. This photograph from a wedding in Hyderabad, was a symbolic representation of me - a photographer - showing images to people. Somehow, I started to get similar visuals in mind of people looking at my work. This also made me realise a personal project - a project of photographing people with cameras at Indian weddings. Go wideI think most photographers love to use telephoto lens to capture closeup/detail shots while creating a bokeh/blurred background to isolate the subject. This is nice, but too much of it can be an overkill. I do not use superzoom lenses. I like to work in the social space of my subjects, and normal range zoom lens is my favorite for this. There are some many things happening on the wedding mantap. When you shoot wide, you capture all the ... With a little help from Family and friends.My wedding photography not just focuses on the couple but also on their loved ones. This is one of my personal favorites, where the women of the family subconsciously come forward to help the bride and the groom during the indian hindu wedding ritual of mangalsutra. I have anticipated this moment again and again at weddings across the country.Moments from the wedding of Kala & Miguel, that was held at Bangalore during October 2012.
Get out of the comfort zone.We all love comfort zones. As photographers, many of us love sweet spots and are scared to step away from vantage points to experiment to create something new. This was a Sangeet ceremony in Chhattisgarh. I stepped away from the main area and went behind the dias to capture this solo dance performance of the bride and at the same tie capture the ambiance of the place. Another experiment that went correct. This photograph is stays on my my homepage slideshow.From the Sangeet ceremony of Sujata & Abhinav. Durg, Chattisgarh. February 2014.
