A Telugu Wedding in Bengaluru

There is a lot of cultural diversity in India. A lot of this diversity is visible in the Indian weddings. Very rarely do two weddings that I photograph in the same season look identical. In other words, being a wedding photographer in India is like undertaking a journey to observe and witness cultural richness in the country. During the last wedding season, I got to photograph a Telugu wedding for the Setty family. 

This was the second wedding in this family that I was commissioned to photograph. Esha, the bride, was getting married to Ashwin in Bengaluru. A couple of years ago, I was the candid wedding photographer at Esha’s sister’s wedding. It felt great to be back amidst familiar faces. It always feels nice to know that your work is loved by a family that they hire you again for another wedding!

This was a multiple day wedding celebration. It got kicked off with an intimate Mehendi/Sangeet event. Followed by a Haldi ceremony (Pelli Kuthuru) and Vara Pooja ceremony on different days. It all culminated with a wedding reception followed by a traditional Telugu wedding ceremony. I had a great time capturing unscripted, candid moments during the entire wedding. I also managed to get some time on the reception day to make portraits for the couple.

I enjoyed the hospitality of this family and loved photographing this wedding. Best wishes to the lovely couple for a happy married life.

I shot this entire wedding on a new mirrorless camera system, the Fujifilm X-series cameras – Fujifilm XT2 and X-T20. It has been a lovely experience using this well designed X-series cameras. More about this in a different post.
