A softer side of Bollywood

We hoped to create a minimalist shoot that embodied a modern, effortless South Asian bride. A little bit of wind and a breathtaking bride were all the elements we needed as inspiration for this Bollywood inspired editorial. Most south Asian brides are accustomed to bold and brighter tones of deep red and pink tones when planning their weddings, but we wanted to showcase a softer,  more muted touch for the modern bride. I find so much beauty in simplicity and showcasing softer, neutral palettes. There is still an element of the bolder homage to the beautiful culture of the bride with her stunning jeweled Lazaro gown while the florals balance everything out. The beauty is truly in the movement of the bride as she is walking towards a new adventure in her life and how the wind delicately blows her saree, her hair and the stunning silk and willow ribbon in her bouquet.

While I was attending WPPI: Wedding & Portrait Photographers International earlier this year, I decided it would be a good idea to go to Las Vegas early and set up a bunch of shoots. Well, running low on time and being very busy right after the bridal shows I didn’t have time to do that for myself, so I found some awesome shoot outs to join instead! Little Film Lab were gracious hosts & kept positive even during the pouring rain and freezing temperatures! The models were the real heros of the day though, staying calm and collected and still workin’ it all while freezing in far fewer layers of clothing than we were! LFL even gave us some cool swag which included an awesome LFL T-shirt that I still wear more often than I would like to admit to. It came in handy on the shoot day when we were all sopping wet and frozen to have an extra dry shirt!
