One thing I love about my job is getting to photograph weddings for couples from different cultural backgrounds. When Renata and Nikhil came to me about photographing their Indian wedding at Tarrytown House Estate, I was very excited!
Each culture has their own rituals and details that make up the wedding celebration. However, even though a couple says they are having a ‘traditional’ ceremony, that can mean a lot of different things. Many couples choose which traditional elements they will include in their ceremony.
Some couples even choose to add their own personal traditions to their wedding. Which is why I am always sure to go over with every couple what their plans are and the details of the wedding that are most important to them. These discussions also help ensure that everyone on my team is in the right place at the right time.
For example, making sure that we had photo and video coverage of both Renata’s getting ready and Nikhil’s baraat ceremony (the part where he rides in on the horse before the wedding ceremony takes place). There are a lot of moving pieces to a wedding, especially an Indian wedding.
Luckily, I have 20 years of experience arranging the logistics so we make sure everything runs smoothly on the day of the wedding…or several days of the wedding in this case…
