- Very few people I know have photographed this type of event,
- Google doesn't help very much if you misspell transliterated words, and
- Lugging around two heavy cameras makes the July heat just that much more miserable. Photographers: What do you do to stay calm, cool, and collected when you're shooting in weather like the harsh St. Louis summer?
It was challenging to shoot this event not only because of the heat but also due to my personal desire to not block the view of those watching. I had essentially three sides to shoot from and I let the fourth remain open for guests. I also couldn't stand directly above the ceremony or again I would be a distraction - or worse, fall into the middle of the ceremonial table!
Here are some of my personal favorites from the shoot.
Congratulations to Raj and Gauri, and thanks for making me a part of this special day!
