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.
