Banglalore wedding photography by Anbu Jawahar of India

Weddings present a dramatic canvas against which I do what I like to do—photograph people. While Indian weddings are lively, colourful and dramatic, they are also extremely complicated affairs. Large crowds milling about small spaces, even blocking out the couple; overdone decorations, clashing colours, bad lighting compounded by smoking fires, flocks of photographers (family, friends and hired guns) jostling for space, whimsical priests, piles of random objects scattered around, confusion over what is to be done, when and by whom—all make for high entertainment and challenge. My effort in such situations is to focus on the marriage taking place during the wedding. Looking to capture precious moments as beautifully as I can—between the couple and around them, among the families, and in the numerous nuances that constitute the Indian wedding. Hoping to preserve the essence of those moments for future memories. An artist by training, a designer by profession, and a photographer by aptitude, I started using a borrowed analog SLR while in college and remained interested in photography over the years while I passed through other visual media- dabbling in video production, learning digital editing and finally multi-media design. I love using technology and gadgets. Digital photography provides a happy marriage of the various skills and preferences that I have acquired over the years. My style of photography melds the techniques of the different media I have worked in with my formative training as an artist. You might see the influence of different media on my work, especially in the composition and post-processing of my photographs. I took to full-time photography in 2010, deciding to focus on weddings and portraiture. [Bangalore Wedding Photographer]

Tamil Nadu and Chennai elopement wedding photography by Sujith Kumar of India

I am Sujith Kumar, a photographer based out of Chennai, India. A Retro Aficionado. Images have always fascinated me, Kodak's focus-free cameras which were a rage in the late '90s was my favorite toy!! I was mentored by Mr.Raghu Lakshminarayanan, who taught me the mind, body, and soul of wedding photography. Becoming a photographer was a fantasy to me more than a dream. Capturing weddings in an unconventional style is what I prefer, whether you call it wedding reportage, wedding photojournalism or candid wedding photography. I along with my team have crisscrossed South India and we consider it a privilege to be part of the most vibrant wedding culture in the world. [Tamil Nadu Wedding Photographer]

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more
