A good thing that lead to some forgotten pictures

Like all good young ‘professional’ photographers, I was raised to mock wedding photography and all that it represented and never even thought that I would do it. “Wedding photographer” always seemed to be a bit uncool, to put it lightly. No one thinks twice if you say that you’re a commercial photographer, a photojournalist, or a photographer who shoots nudes. Friends will be somewhat interested on the commercial front; be really excited about the nudes; and ask you again and again on your latest assignment as a field photographer. In fact, for years when I went to parties I used to always hear that I had the coolest job. Wedding photographers, needless to say, have never inspired such levels of envy. Never the less, in the past few years, a whole new breed of wedding photographers has emerged determined to give the reputation of this line of work a serious makeover.

One good thing that happened this week is that I was accepted into the ISPWP, a prestigious directory listing only the best wedding photographers in the world. The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers, or ISPWP, is a rarity among online wedding photography directories. It is small, exclusive and picky. It is a worldwide group of top professional wedding photographers who have the experience, talent, and reputation to deliver outstanding wedding photography to their clients. I am very honored to be among the great photographers already there, and particularity to be the first photographer from India to be accepted.

The ISPWP website provides each photographer with the opportunity to post a small gallery of twelve images, and while I was going through my archive looking for the right pictures to use in that gallery I came across my pictures from Kajal and Saurabh’s wedding. That was one amazing wedding that took place in Delhi last November but I was so busy the entire winter that I did not have time to post any pictures back then, and forgot to do that since. I hope you will forgive me for that 🙂

  • Sephi, these photos put me a in a regret mode. I wish I had been exposed to these before my wedding. I could probably think of interacting with you and engaging you to shoot my wedding.

    But this is a wish I shall keep alive for my sister’s wedding. As a photography enthusiast I would be very keen to discuss the opportunity for you to come down to Mumbai and shoot the event [as and when it does happen].

    Been reading your blog since a while now and thanks for sharing those experiences and thoughts.

    cheers!

    I know what you mean about the reputation of wedding photographers… I was phoning a photo lab recently, and as soon as I had said I was a wedding photographer, the guy on the phone answered: “sorry, we only work with artists and professionals”! Well, I didn’t buy them any prints after all…

    You are a great artist. I hope one day my work will look a bit like yours.
