The Couple: Shruti and Sunil
The Venue: Portland Art Museum
The Photographer Portland Oregon Wedding Photographer : Juan Carlos Torres
It is hard to put in words how beautiful and joyful was the Indian wedding of Shruti and Sunil in Portland Oregon. In the words of many it was the largest wedding celebration in Portland this year.
I must confess that initially Sandra and I a little intimidated by the size of the wedding and because we had never photographed an Indian wedding before. On top of that the wedding was at the Portland Art Museum one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Portland but also a very dark place. The challenge was to use radio controlled lights and at the same capture the beauty, color, and mood of the wedding. It is easy to just blast light all over a wedding venue but if destroys the mood then the photos don’t look like the place was at the time of the wedding.
Shruti provided us with lots of background information about traditional Indian wedding ceremonies. It was like taking a course in Cultural Anthropology. We learned that every single detail and step of the wedding ceremony has cultural, traditional and human meaning. We were so honored to learn about such a wonderful culture and its millennial traditions.
It was a long day, we started photographing at 8:00 AM and finished at midnight. After 16 hours and many photos we came home and were very glad with the beautiful wedding photos that we had the privilege to capture.
Below are a few album pages from this wonderful wedding celebration. We are looking forward to photographing more Indian weddings!!!!
Mr. Shah the father of the bride just called the other day to tell us how happy he is with the wedding photographs. He wants to take us to dinner. Wow, we feel so honored and would love to spend some time with the Shah family. They are amazing people!!
