I havent explicitly said here on my site that I take up wedding/events/portrait photography assignments. But, I do. I have been updating my Facebook photography page with samples from my assignments.
What do I try to achieve while shooting at weddings? I strive to shoot moments as they are, and to find beauty as and when I capture these honest moments. I respect the space and happenings around me, I do not direct the proceedings, I do not stop the proceedings, I do not interfere; I simply observe and capture.
Of the many things I observe and capture, one of the things I do watch out for is the emotions of the father of the bride. There is a special bonding for any father with his daughter; and on the momentous day of giving away his daughter’s hand in marriage, typically his heart melts. I remember my own father from my wedding; I could sense what it meant to him … the giving away.
The following pics are from a recent wedding I covered …
He is being consoled by some of the womenfolk in the family.
As he wipes away his tears, there’s the mother watching her husband in one of his most tender moments.
