A+R: A South Indian Wedding

My photography journey has its origins in documentary photography and photojournalism. It goes without saying that a lot of this style and framework has influenced my wedding photography. People call it candid wedding photography and I like to call it visual storytelling of an important day in the life of a couple.

Towards the end of the last wedding season in Bengaluru, I got to photograph a beautiful wedding which gave me plenty of opportunities to make photographs as a documentary wedding photographer.

The couple, Archana and Raghu, both south Indians living abroad had their two-day wedding in Bengaluru city. The bride’s family was predominantly from Tamil Nadu and the groom’s family were from Karnataka. Hence, I got to photograph some amount of cultural diversity in this south Indian wedding. The wedding was held in one of the wedding halls or Kalyana Mantapas located along the bull temple road in Basavanagudi.

I loved the simplicity and intimacy displayed during this wedding. It wasn’t over-the-top, and yet it seemed an elegant affair with a large number of relatives and friends as the guest list. I tried my best to capture some elements of this while I shadowed the couple throughout the day. I wish the lovely couple a happy married life!

Here is a gallery with selected photographs from this wedding.
