Just booked one for next year.
2 days, 600 guests so far... and thats just family.
I've heard Indian weddings are totally insane. Food comes in fucking SHIFTS, bro.
Look forward to the pics...
Everyone I've seen is so colorful, fun, and full of crazy fun events. I've always looked at an Indian wedding and a destination wedding as two things I wanted to do since I started. Destination is done... and i think thats what led to booking a few of the weddings I have so far next year. I think the Indian wedding will just add to that.
don't drink the water
Good friends of mine had an all-day wedding. Indian service in the morning complete with welcoming ceremony. Food. Changed clothes and then had a Christian ceremony with tux and wedding gown. Then dinner and dancing till 2am. They rented the Troy (Michigan) Hilton conference room all day.
the wedding is so big, they have to rent out a convention center near Sugarland here... and I thought my wedding was big @ 370 people.
You better have 2nd shooter and assistant with you.
have a second shooter and possibly a 3rd/assistant
fly me down, I'll assist fo free
i'm indian and i've never been to a wedding that has been more fun than an indian one.
SHIT loads of good food...open bar with unlimited booze...partying till they kick you out
have fun buddy...bring lots of assistants lol
LOL "dot, not feather"
haha "tech support kind, not casino kind"
I'll 2nd camera you bro, just for the experience and to be able to say that I did one
Oh man, I had fun for my first Indian wedding. It was actually an Indian/Filipino wedding, so you can imagine the food. The ceremony was pretty long too, one Indian, and then the Catholic one next. Never did weddings after that.
I have a second shooter and a possibly an assistant. I might have to get walkie-talkies for this thing so we can be in contact. lol
ONe of my best friends is Sri Lankan (Tamil) and his family's weddings are insanity. Those people party like no other I have ever seen.
Be prepared for lots of color
That's the biggest thing I've always noticed with the Indian weddings, and that's exactly what I'm looking forward to.
Good luck! is the best advice I can offer. Not only will you be swarmed by the family of the bride and groom to take pictures of them with their family, everyone will arrive an hour late minimum to every function.
btw, i would seriously consider a second shooter. I'm in Austin, so if you do consider it, let me know. I've shot few Indian weddings myself provided they were in my family, I can help you out.
I have a good friend from Austin coming to shoot it with me (www.dcmphotography.com), and might have another friend who's trying to get into weddings come help out and be an assistant to keep up with the family that wants those pics.
Being middle eastern and married to an Asian woman, I know all about people being late to everything. I think it's in the culture in that region, or maybe in their DNA. Who knows!!!
well i think you got yourself covered, can't wait to see the results.
It's my first wedding of the year next year, so it'll set the tone for the rest of the year. Win/Win situation for me.
whats a feather indian wedding like?
didnt know you was ayrab
Iranian, not a-rab. Close enough though, I guess.
I expect ZERO black and whites.
