Palace at Somerset Park Indian Wedding

I am incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to provide Indian Wedding Photography for many clients over the past several years. They tend to be transpire over the course of a few days, and the traditions of the culture allow for spectacular photographs while telling the story for my Indian Wedding couples. The colors, emotions, traditions, symbolism, and so many other aspects of Indian weddings inspire me to produce some of my best work. Lets not forget the attire. Indian weddings provide me with some of the most beautiful wedding attire imaginable. The multiple gown changes, the bangles, jewelry, and other colorful accessories that the bride wears allow for stunning images with impact. The henna that the bride has applied during the Mende ceremony usually takes place the night before the wedding. The intricate artwork is incredibly graphic, and it makes for some truly amazing photographic details. Our bride, here, was married at the Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset New Jersey. They had a Barat early in the morning, and then the Hindu Ceremony and reception followed after. I wanted to isolate the henna on our bride’s hands, so I used my AF-S Nikkor 85mm F1.4G wide open at 1.4 in order to achieve sharpness on her hands, while her face went out of focus due to the shallow depth of field. I proceeded to photograph several other details for this bride, and then I got ready for the Barat which I’d only compare to organized chaos! I really love photographic Indian weddings, and I was thrilled with what I produced for this fantastic couple.
