Slumdog Millionaire - India Wedding

Destination Wedding Photography

Destination Wedding Photography
Visit my wedding photography website:
I photograph from Oregon across the USA to your wedding destination anywhere on the globe.
India Weddings are infused with oranges, reds lots of amazing food and they last a very long time. Their wedding began the night before informally and lasted for a good 24 hours. This may explain why the couple does not smile a lot as well as that this is only the second time that they have met. (I hope hope that they are good for each other). The woman's parents pay the grooms parents at least a year ahead for the prospective marriage. The woman will move into the man's family home until they someday get a home of their own.
This wedding in Chennai India was lovely even under florescent lights. A nightmare for color correcting but I can deal.
After seeing Slumdog Millionaire tonight I got that extra breathe to at least put up a few pictures from the beautiful wedding in India.
Incredible colors. Not exactly a destination wedding as they obvious live there. The food is amazing. The people incredible and capable of staying awake extremely long hours.

Hey Sherrlyn! These pics are soooooo beautiful!!!! I love all the color in the Indian weddings. Is this the traditional way ? with all of the yellow, orange and red? It makes for some gorgeous photos. Thanks so much for sharing. Take care my friend,
Julian :)

HI Julian, Yes the traditional Indian weddings are infused with color especially orange. Great for photos although what you don't see is they had green florescent lights above and in corners which made me very nervous. If I had known before...well I'm thankful for color correction!

After 24 hours I would only want to smile at my pillow:

Great Name! I have a younger sister who name is Jerrlyn thanks to me.
Wonderful photos! You are a talented gal! My husband is a photographer and lives and breates it. The color orange might be seen as the courage to go forward ! It could apply here! It is difficult to imagine marrying somone you have just recently met.

Your adventures seem around the world. Thanks for visiting Psyche Connections. Glad you made it there. Please stop back . You have what used to be called Good Vibrations!

Very nicely done Sherrlyn. Good job. Not easy capturing the essence of a foreign custom and to do it with tenderness. Love the colors and intensity of it all
