Shubaum and Purnita
The wedding of Shubaum and Purnita took place during the height of covid. This required what would soon become the norm in wedding photography. Because this is an Indian wedding, and we are in the height of covid, the ceremony had a remote option. Connecting back with family in India was vital to the families involved. Everything is very tight and discreet. The initial ceremony was held at a smaller temple and then taken to a larger after to capture some images.
During the shoot the timing of everything started a bit later in the afternoon. Me an my trusty 24-70 made sure we were on the job. I was able to capture shots in the initial temple which was well lit and then step outside into the beginnings of the sun setting. The sun set in just the perfect spot for us to capture an intimate moment during a kiss. The temple had a beautiful overcast due to where the sun began setting.
As the day goes on we find ourselves inside a larger temple. The beautiful craftsmanship shows in the images. This allows for great composition and color. This particular temple is now complete on both the interior and exterior. The men and women had to change and enter from their respective sides of the area. The floors contain an extremely reflective material to bounce the ceiling lights. This added another layer of texture to the temple.
To close things out, we captured quite a few shots focused on religious practice. This then took us to the outside of the temple again where the sun had set and the temple floor lights illuminated everything. A beautiful scene.
