The Wedding Story

Published November 21st, 2013

A contemporary wedding photography series doesn't starts with a photographer, but with the eagerness and expectations of the couple !

A Photographer is just a person who understand the requirements and tries to exceed the expectation.

I was exactly in the same stage when Yeathish and Sathya asked me to take up preserving the wedding moments.

The first thing I discussed was on the event schedule, by the same time planned for my gears also.

Believe me, it will be more than just fun !

Gears used: Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 7D , ...

With all these stuffs screening on back of my head..... a pleasant surprise came in front, a pink colony of greater flamingos !

We made it clear not to disturb its nature and clicked from far away,
