I’ve been down and out with a chest infection and the 4 removed wisdom teeth so work seems to have come to a standstill. But my excitement to edit this wedding brought me back.
Three months into my full time photography career, who would have thought that I would be hired to photograph a wedding in India? But it was true and I’m still a little in shock at how it all happened.
This is part 1, a traditional Marwari ceremony in Chennai spread out over 2 days. There is no point tarnishing this visual experience with my words of how amazing the trip was, how wonderful the families were to me or how refreshing it was meeting new people with beautiful hearts on the other side of the planet. I’ll just let you try and absorb some of the culture, tradition, colour and ceremony in the next 130 images or so.
As a young child, all I dreamed about was being an astronaut.
As an adult, all I dream about is being a wedding photographer.
Yesterday, both things came together for one brief moment.
