My Natural Photography Style at Asian Weddings

Every wedding is unique, from the bride and groom to the guests and the music. So a formulaic approach to your photography can never really do justice to what makes you and your day special.

I believe passionately that it’s my job to capture those differences, those unique moments, because they are the things that will mean the most and connect you with your day in years to come. I love creating images that blow couples away but it starts before I’ve even picked up the camera. By making sure you feel relaxed, and that I understand your personalities and relationship, I can get closer and reveal so much more.

Asian weddings tend to be very colourful compared to Western weddings, but they also last longer too. In order to honour the coming together of two families, plenty of time is devoted to that process of getting to know each other. There are a lot of people to meet, and when you’re going to arrive as strangers and leave as family, that’s not something you want to rush. It all helps to make sure the relationship gets off to the best possible start, plus it’s great news for me. I love watching people chatting and capturing the little – or not so little – exchanges that happen between them at unexpected moments.

My approach at all weddings is much like journalism. By trying to document the event without imposing on it, I can capture more authentic moments, without distracting – or annoying – you or your guests. A bit of posing is always required, of course. Portraits done on the fly don’t look very good! But I want you to be able to enjoy your Indian wedding and soak up every minute of it. There’s a lot going on and a lot to think about. So the less I take you away from your special occasion and special people, the better.
