Jobin and Sheril's Wedding Day
Jobin and Sheril held a traditional Indian wedding with a modern flare and I was lucky enough to be apart of the process. Generally, traditional Indian weddings last for a few days; but Jobin and Sheril hosted a traditional time line of just a day. Their wedding was stunning-gorgeous attire, bright colors, wonderful food, amazing friends and family, great music and even better laughter.
Sheril and Jobin are a beautiful couple inside and out and when we discussed the photography for their wedding day, it was important to showcase the beauty and effort that goes into a traditional Indian wedding and since I’ve photographed Indian weddings before, I knew exactly what they wanted and needed, and I was on board.
I loved how the tradition of their wedding day was presented in every aspect of their day, but there was this low-key, calming feeling that was apart of their day, as well. Everyone was literally all smiles, from Jobin’s family, to the bridal party, to Sheril’s parents; everyone was light and ready to celebrate and filled with emotion. As Sheril donned a beautiful wedding dress, it’s technically considered non-traditional in Indian wedding standards, the same went for Jobin’s suit. As the groomsmen all wore suits, Sheril’s bridesmaids all wore a Lengha styled saree which is draped around the body of the woman in the style of a blouse, it’s very elegant and typically showcased in a pop of color. Before the official wedding ceremony, the couple did a prayer with each family before seeing one another for the first time and I thought that to be a lovely, personal touch.
Sheril and Jobins wedding was a 450+ guest affair, by far my largest group and I will never forget how I felt watching and capturing the energy of the entire day and night. As a wedding photographer, it’s easy to get yourself in the head space of believing that a guest amount of a certain number will be stressful and overwhelming, but it absolutely isn’t. Whether it’s an intimate ceremony and reception or a 450+ guest list, take it all in and never forget that you’ve been asked to document a very important day in a couple’s life. Also, when working with a wedding that has specific traditions whether is be religious or cultural, never be afraid to take the leap and take it on! Just take the time to research and ask questions to better understand the needs of couple and their families. Not only does it show you really want to invest in your couple, but you’re learning new skills to help you and your business.
I had such a wonderful experience at Sheril and Jobin’s wedding and I truly wish them a lifetime of happiness and I can’t thank them enough for selecting me to be the person behind the camera for their special day.
