Richard & Tuiya

Richard and Tuiya’s destination wedding in Kenya is a wedding I will remember forever, for many reasons. For once, after covering so many destination weddings as a photographer, this was the very first wedding I have ever traveled to another country to attend, as a guest. I knew Richard and Tuiya separately before they got married. They […]

Nawas & Fathima

Muslim weddings are not easy to photograph. I can tell you that for sure. I mean, if you are a muslim than this might sounds strange, after all a wedding is a wedding. However, if you are used to all the music, alcohol, and party atmosphere usually associated with Indian weddings than you are up […]

Rahul & Reema

The 16th century Samode palace lies a little more than an hour drive from the pink city of Jaipur, in the midst of ancient granite rock formation and away from the world we know. Memories belonging to a very distant past are hidden in its maze of bougainvillea covered courtyards and quaint narrow staircases. Lounges adorned […]

Sidarth & Laura

The very first wedding I ever photographed in India was a TamBrahm, or in its full name; a Tamil Brahmin wedding. This was back at the end of 2007 when I started working on my book on Indian weddings. I had no idea what I was going to see. I had no clue the wedding […]

Clayton & Ann

If you are planing a church wedding in Goa there are quite a few places to hold the ceremony. There is a small chapel at the top of a hill which remains locked most of the time. Nevertheless, it is worth coming up here for a spectacular view of the Salcette countryside in general and the town of […]

Tulsi Vivah

Some Indian wedding traditions can be very strange to an outsider. I have been here for a while and have experienced some of them but there is always a new experience. I have heard of the marriage of the Tulsi plant in Goa but this is the first time I actually made the time to […]

For Wedding Photographers – Post Production 03

This is the third post of creative post production for wedding photographers. This time it is an image from a destination wedding in Udaipur. A good example of how an image that is seemingly not good to start with can turn out to be rather fine, albeit rather kitsch I must admit, with some Lightroom attention.

Wedding photography can be a lot more forgiving in terms of the amount of post production we apply to our images than photojournalism will ever be. Yes, we are supported to tell the truth, but no one will be mad at us it we make it more beautiful.

Allie & Floris

Udaipur is quite possibly the most romantic city in India. I come to the ‘Venice of Rajasthan’ a few times a year and it always manages to surprise me and look different than it did before. Different but always stunning. There is something about this city on the lake that is just so perfect as a destination […]
