We’re here today with Shironisha and Mithun’s wedding and reception. These two were so amazing throughout the whole process. Both are extremely bright, established doctors yet you wouldn’t know it for how down to earth they are. Not only are they humble but their families are amazing as well! I remember even at their engagement shoot, Shironisha’s mom was already in reception mode and repeatedly reminded me that on the reception night, I was supposed to shoot for ten minutes of dance floor coverage and then join in on the party. This is something she clearly meant because on the night of reception, once the dance floor ACTUALLY started, she was trying so hard to get me on the dance floor! Haha!
I love all of their photos but ones that stood out to me were Shironisha’s prayer session on the morning of the wedding. It was calm, serene, yet emotional - and I think the photos served justice to exactly how it felt in that room that morning. Photogs, if you have any questions about lighting, let me know below and I’ll respond or make it into a post if I think it merits further explanation.
Another thing I thought was touching was the relationship between them and their parents. Not only did they have great relationships with their own parents but you could see the comfort, love, and ease that they had between in-laws. Weddings can become an awkward time for in-laws as people can push one way or another; many times, it shows through my lens on the wedding day. But with them they were comfortable in all directions - you can see beautiful moments between children with their parents, parents with each other, and parents with their new kids. It’s amazing how happy and successful an event can be when people put egos aside and do what is best for everyone overall.
And they smile! Oh how they all are such positive, smiley, happy bunch! Makes this photographer’s job so much better! It's rare for South Asian parents to show emotion and sometimes getting them to smile is like pulling teeth. So I'm really happy when they're as easy going as all of these folks are. Amazing experience with everyone involved at their wedding! Hope you enjoy the highlights from their wedding and reception.
