Indian Wedding Photographer: Namrata & Kaushik’s Wedding in New Delhi, India
What can I say possibly say about this incredibly warm, close-knit family that I haven’t already? This is a night that gives that old cliche “filled with joy” real and concrete meaning. Our bride, Namrata, has never been slow with a smile or a laugh, but tonight she’s absolutely glowing with happiness. You can see that Kaushik feels it too; some of my favorite shots of the entire trip are simple ones of the two of them looking at each other during the ceremony. You can see that the rest of the family feels it as well, and the warmth in everyone’s smiles in infectious.
Held at The Palms in the heart of Gurgaon, it was a gorgeous evening. Huge tents made of strips of red and orange fabric with endless garlands of hand-strung marigolds decorate the lawn. The lighting is dim, soft, and beautiful. It’s one of those nights that makes me incredible grateful for the fast prime lenses and incredible sensitive modern camera sensors that allow me to capture an evening like this without using my flash.
As Namrata & Kaushik circle the fire for the seventh time, representing the seven lifetimes that they will be married for, a trouble-making uncle jokes that he and his wife must be on their seventh already. His wife elbows him in the side, and then they look at each other laughing, and you can see that all jokes aside, they’re still as happy and in love as ever. It’s always wonderful to see couples who have been together for so long still have such warmth and love for each other; I think it’s pretty obvious from this night that Namrata & Kaushik will be one of them, too.
Warmest wishes, you two – May you both be this happy for all seven!
