With most Indian weddings, a specialized Indian wedding photographer is hired since they are familiar with the meaning and progression of events. Nikita (the bride) had a love for art and wanted a photojournalistic approach for her wedding photos. As she began to explain some of the customs and traditions I started to realize this would be much more than I had expected. I explained to her that as a photojournalist I would be engaged the entire time, and anything and everything that happened would be photographed and not to worry. It was more strenuous than I had imagined, for I ended up shooting 11,877 images in a little more than a weekend.
