Recently I have been getting asked if I have ever photographed an Indian wedding before and so I though I would post a few of the photographs from Eshwar and Nafisa’ wedding here. They were married back in 2004 and they flew me over to Bangalore, India to cover their celebration I had photographed a few Indian weddings before but this was my first real Indian wedding to photograph in India. it was awesome. There were festivities to cover for more than 4 days. And when I was not photographing the festivities, I went out on the streets of Bangalore to witness and photograph the life of that great city. It was an unforgetable trip.
I was still shooting film back then for weddings and shot more than 75 rolls of the wedidng, perhaps 65% in black and white and the rest in color. The candid black and white wedding photograph at the top of this page was made with with the panorama camera and Eshwar and Nifisa were very pleased with this picture. The middle panorama wedding picture was also made with the same large format camera and is a large group portrait of the extended family of the bride and groom. The bottom picture is also a large group wedding portrait of everyone attending the Moslem ceremony in Seattle where they had their second wedding ceremony at Benaroya Hall.
