Wedding photography is not only expensive for the bride and groom – or their parents – it’s a high pressure game for the photographer on hand. You are, in theory, there to capture the moments of the day – the ones that are gone just as fast as they arrived. Sure, some shots are staged, but a vast majority of them are not.
I attended an Indian wedding last weekend, and after the bride and groom changed into more traditional attire, I snapped this shot during their first dance. Note: I wasn’t there as a shooter – just a guest – and I wasn’t using flash, or even the correct lens for that matter.
I’m just happy to have been in the right place at the right time to capture this shot for the bride and groom.
