Skippity-do-da it just makes my day when we get featured. Yes, I still get geeked when I hear people like our stuff as much as we do. So, we are pleased to tell you that Maharani Weddings has picked up this stunning wedding of ours we had the pleasure of photographing this past wedding season.
I know you remember Christen & Rajeeve’s wedding. It was one holy moly of a wedding weekend blitz! Indian celebrations on Friday, followed by Christian celebrations on Saturday…it was crazy-beautiful. The entire weekend was designed and pulled off brilliantly by Erin Calvimontes and her team over at Divine Celebrations & Events.

I wanted to call this a sneak peek but then couldn’t seem to get the number of photos under 12. As usual.
Happy to tell you that we got one of our recent Indian weddings published on a national Indian wedding site! So excited! We were contacted a little while ago and asked if we would mind sharing Ashima & Neel’s wedding photos for their site. Um…psh! Yeah!!
I don’t know if you remember Ashima & Neel but their wedding was jam-packed full of the most awesome festivities, food and details. It was a very emotional weekend and the energy surrounding everything was so contagious. With the Sangeet/Mehendi at PNC Park (Neel is a big baseball fan) and a gigantic wedding and reception at the Pittsburgh Hyatt, we were just hanging on with both hands trying not to fall off. 🙂 Ashima & Neel were SUCH a fun couple to work with. Both so excited, so sweet and soooo funny. They kept us entertained allll day long (and if you take a moment to see their slideshow you’ll understand what I’m talking about. ;-))
So if you have some time, drop by and take a peek. IndianWeddingSite published 3 separate posts: the Sangeet/Mehendi, the Wedding and the Reception. Gorgeous!
Hello and top o’ the mornin’ to everyone! John and I would like to announce our official Indian Weddings by Craig Photography website launch! We’re thrilled to be focusing more of our time on this niche of photography as both of us just love all the energy (and that’s A LOT!) surrounding Indian weddings. If you have never had a chance to photograph or attend an Indian wedding you are really missing out. The people, the colors, the pace….it really is a weekend of grandiosity.
From a photographic perspective I’m like a kid in a candy store. My favorite speed is FAST so every detail of an Indian wedding just has me glued. There is so much to see and be a part of I just don’t ever know what to point my camera at first. 🙂
So if you find you have a little extra time today be sure to drop by and take a peek!
So I have to say, one of my most favorite parts of an Indian wedding day is the Baraat. If you’re not familiar with Indian weddings, the Baraat is the groom’s wedding processional that basically delivers him to the parents of the bride, where they formally welcome him to their family. It is one of the most energized portions of the day…and that’s saying a lot because if you have ever attended an Indian wedding then you know the entire day is nothing if not….energized, to say the least. 😉
During the procession there is music, dancing and the groom is typically carried by a large animal, in this case, a horse. Awesome, right?? I keep waiting for some groom to be brave enough to ride an elephant thru the streets of the city. THAT would be a sight to see (and photograph!)
So enjoy the the collage below! It is just a small snippet of this wonderful ritual.
