Aditi & Aditya – Part 1/2

There aren’t many opportunities a photographer gets to shoot the same assignment/wedding with a fellow photographer who’s work he/she regards. This was the case with this out-of-this-world palace wedding in Jaipur when Andrew Adams came to shoot with me. We covered the wedding as a team and while I focused more on the couple and the main event Andrew had a chance to walk around and cover the decoration and the interactions among the guests. It was good to know that whatever I miss will surely be captured by Andrew, and it was a wonderful opportunity for both of us to see where and how our style is different. When the subject stays the same it is only the point of view that changes.

The wedding itself was simply amazing and the venues were most probably the most beautifully decorated I have ever seen. When we arrived for the Mehendi event at the Jai Mahal Palace on the first morning, it was already obvious that it would be impossible to showcase the entire wedding in one blog post as there was so much to show. It was like coming to a photographer’s Disneyland. The palace garden was beautifully decorated, the local Rajasthani folk dancers were captivating. Indian traditional musicians playing Rajasthani tunes to the delight of the guests who happily cooperated and presented a serious competition to the professional dancers. Even a couple of elephants were there for the enjoyment of the guests who wanted to take a short ride while others were enjoying the delicacies served in the shade of the colorful Shamiana tents. What a delight.

The evening Sangeet party was even more impressive with a colorful lighting and live performance at the Sisodia Rani Gardens outside of Jaipur but this was only the appetizer for the actual wedding to take place the day after at no other place but Jaipur City Palace! This will have to wait for the next post so make sure to follow up . .

      Thank you Sumedha. I actually have a reason why the blog has not been updated lately. I’ve relocated to Goa and being a rural area I still do not an Internet connection at the office. This might still take another couple of weeks but I will update and upload the second part as well as many other posts. Thanks for following me. Sephi

          Thank you Madhur. I hope you are getting good pictures at the wedding today. Sorry I could not reply earlier but these are my last couple of days in Delhi before leaving and I am simply swamped with work.

    These are absolutely beautiful. The emotion ad colours are stunning. I feel very “there” viewing the photographs. Great work.

      Thank you Trudy. This is what all photographers try to achieve and I’m glad you feel that I have. Cheers

    dear sephi,

    more and more i believe that your eyes are the eyes of an artist and the real art is to capture what you see in pictures, pictures that we noneternal people can only then see.
    so…i love your eyes…
