Beautiful Story Telling With Modern Asian Wedding Photography
The first thing to note is that Asian wedding photography is an interesting term which means more than photographing at an Indian or Pakistani wedding. It is the art of telling the story of the Indian or Pakistani wedding beautifully, artistically and unobtrusively.
Setting the Scene
To tell a complete story of your wedding day, your wedding photographer will need to be a story-teller and able to photograph the events, people and details in a way which sets the scene. Like the elements of a written story, the setting and mood needs to be conveyed. In photographic terms this means capturing the venue of the wedding in the most flattering manner, giving a sense of weather and the season.
Telling the Story
Just as in any great story, there is a beginning, middle and an end, and this is filled plot and subplots, with characters and their actions and emotions and details which reveal more about the mood and style of the story. Conveying the action of what is happening at an Asian wedding requires knowledge of the traditions and ceremonies. Many wedding ceremonies and traditions take place quite quickly.
Capturing the Family
The members of an Asian family are often very close-knit, so it is important to photograph not only the bride and groom, but their parents, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles and grandparents. The emotions and closeness of parents and aunties and uncles are some of the most beautiful and treasured details of the wedding day. Asian wedding photography specialists will endeavour to photograph the couple's parents during the wedding ceremony and capture the tears and smiles of pride.
Details can reveal so much about the day and the personality of the bride and bridegroom, and it is important to photograph these details. The flower arrangements, table settings, favours, jewelery, car and elements of the Hindu wedding, Islamic or Sikh ceremonies make beautiful and thoughtful photographs which can really enhance the design of the wedding album.
Wrapping it up
Finally, like a good ending to any story, it is important to photograph the final moments of the wedding day- the venue lit up at night under a starry sky, driving away or simply enjoying a well-deserved moment away from their guests. Asian wedding photography done well require the skills of architectural photography, magazine-style details, photojournalistic moments of the ceremony and emotions and creative portraits to completely tell the story of the wedding artistically and completely.
