Aaroneye Photography introducing Indian wedding photography Sangeet, Mendhi, and Ganesh Puja. It was a busy month for me. One of the big wedding was the Indian wedding of Akash and Rajni. I will break this blog post into 2 parts.
I shot a Sangeet ceremony at the Diamond Palace restaurant in Diamond Bar. and the pictures came out marvelous because I was able to relate to the customs of sangeet. Songs were sung, relatives laughed, and children played throughout the night. At the ceremony I remained almost invisible capturing the delicate moments you can never pose for. The smiles and the closeness of family, and my camera created art that night. When the bride and family saw the pictures, they were thoroughly impressed with the outcome of the raw emotion in the shots.
Ganesh Puja was occurred at the groom Akash’s home in the city of Diamond Bar. I wish I understand what the priest was preaching so it wouldn’t feel like it was 8 hrs @_@.
Mehendi parties are an important part of any traditional Indian wedding. The amount of time it takes to apply the intricate designs and waiting for the henna to dry makes getting the right photographer even more important. The 2-4 week tattoo’s will eventually fade away, but when you’ve got the right pictures the moment will last forever. It was fun capturing the various angles, and beauty of henna as well as, the closeness of the brides friends and family throughout the process. This event was taken place in Rajni’s cousin’s beautiful home in Rancho Cucamonga. To see the 2ndt part of this Blog, please click on Indian Wedding Photography.
