Good evening world,
Sunny Los Angeles has been getting hotter by the moment, so I am already expecting my electricity bill to rise even higher since my A/C will be on blast! One the brighter note, beach season and summer weddings are just around the corner and I cannot wait to photograph them all! Camping is also on my “to do” list before the summer ends and Los Angeles goes back to a cold slump again. Talking about cold slumps, Geoff and I photographed Tulsi and Mihir’s three day destination Indian wedding extravaganza over at Fairmont Hotel in San Jose in the middle of winter at New Year’s Eve! When Geoff and I arrived at San Jose the night before the wedding, it snowed on us and the wind was not too friendly either. Either way, we geared up with plenty of undergarments, jackets, and blazing coffee and photographed Tulis and Mihir’s wedding for three days straight! Although this Indian wedding was definitely an endurance trial, but we enjoyed every minute as we took one photo after another! There were so much excitement, laughter, and of course their colorful attire to compliment their personalities from all the wedding guests.
The next few wedding blog entries will be dedicated for Tulsi and Mihir’s destination Indian wedding at Fairmont Hotel, San Jose. Enjoy their wedding photographs starting with day 1!
Destination Indian Wedding Photography
San Jose, CA
There is always a new tradition to learn when you are a wedding photographer! I have photographed so many weddings and every new one always has something to learn from. In this wedding tradition, all the females decorated Tulsi with a yellow paste and a red dot on her forehead to signify something special. I apologize in advance, I do not know the correct terminology for the practices in Indian weddings! Anyway, I hope their wedding photos will do the explanation for me. For the readers, if you know the terms for these Indian wedding practices, feel free to share the knowledge!
After Day 1 of Tulsi and Mihir’s wedding concluded for the day, everyone relaxed, enjoyed amazing Indian food, and had henna done by these amazing artists! These artists were not only detailed, but extremely fast. I could not help but take so many amazing photos for their masterpieces from beginning to end.
I hope you all enjoyed Day 1 of Tulsi and Mihir’s fun-filled Indian wedding here in chilly San Jose. I will be posting Day 2 of their wedding ceremony photos up very soon, so keep watching!
