07 Jan 25th Wedding Anniversary – Prem & Richard
When I photograph weddings it is never surprising to see the couples happy and in love, but to photograph a 25 year anniversary and to see the couple really happy and in love was amazing! While photographing this event, I was constantly thinking ‘I want to be this much in love after 25 years of marriage’. Shooting a wedding or anniversary where the couple vocally and visually expresses love is so amazing because the day is just filled with so much emotions to capture and I just clicked away. Richard is a freelance photographer himself and I was a bit nervous at our initial meeting, but this lovely couple made us young guys really comfortable during the meeting and we bonded right from the beginning. We looked at their wedding photos from 25 years ago and laughed at how much things have changed since then in photography. I then explained to them how I was going to capture their special day and they instantly fell in love with my crazy ideas and all the energy I brought to the table. Prem and Richard had a traditional western ceremony and a Indian part of the ceremony with the colorful costumes, gowns. I enjoyed photographing every bit of this anniversary as there was so much color to capture. At the end of the day, all the older folks showed their moves on the dance floor. I have never seen so much energy from people of this age. It was one amazing anniversary and it gave me some hope of happiness and life even when you are further down your path in age. Enjoy the photos.
