Ah words can’t describe how much I loved this getting ready session with Maham from the summer. The lighting, the ambiance, the amazing MUA, and such a perfect bride <3 Can’t wait for our next bridal session later this month! :D
So I know a lot of my work here now is portrait based but I have to share this beautiful henna work from a pre-wedding ceremony that I photographed last week. Indian culture is so enchanting and beautiful and I’m so grateful to have had a chance to participate in this, even if it was just on the sidelines.
Charlotte’: “Dinle bak , hep balayı olarak kalmalı sürekli (…) sonsuza kadar, ikimizden biri ölene kadar. Başka türlüsü olamaz. Ya cennet, ya cehennem: Bu ikisi arasında doğru yol, erdem, utanç ya da pişmanlık gelip yakamıza yapışıncaya kadar rahat, huzur ve güven bekleyeceğimiz bir Araf yok ikimiz için (…) İki insan arasındaki aşk ölür derler. Bu doğru değil. Aşk ölmez. Eğer ona layık değilsen, seni bırakır gider. O ölmez; ölen sen olursun.”

This Wedding Sari image was taken on the Ghat at Varanasi. Indian weddings are a site to behold, totally over whelming with drums singing and large crowds gathered around the lucky couple. There are so many colours with both the men and women dressed to impress. I was luck enough to be able to get this image with out anyone else in the frame. Everything just aligned beautifully.
