Brellow – Crown Palace East Indian Wedding

My last wedding of the year with Brellow as I am currently schooling in Ottawa! We covered both Video and Photography as well as providing our Photobooth 🙂 The complete Brellow package! Romi & Mariah had a nice, traditional Indian wedding. Zee and I split up into two groups. He covered the Bride as I followed the Groom around.

 

Groom Getting Ready

Usually there isn’t much that goes on at the Groom’s place in comparison to the bride, but this being a cultural wedding, there was a lot to cover in the morning.

At the Temple

After the ceremonies at the Groom’s house, we headed over to the temple! There was a bit of eating and then the ceremony started.

Formal Pictures

Once the ceremony was over, we went to Queen Elizabeth and took pictures of the Bride and Groom. It was a really really sunny day so I brought out my stands and did an off camera light system with two lights.

The new couple quickly dropped by the Groom’s house and did another ceremony.

Preparing for the night

When we were finished with Queen Elizabeth, the couple went back to their hotel room and we shot some pics of them as they got ready for the reception later on in the evening. This time, they were dressing in a more North American fashion.

Here’s our Photobooth in Action. Yes, that’s right, it’s that little box on the left. It’s nice and small and discrete. I know it’s nice to have that genuine “carnival” style huge photobooth too, but for those of you that want more people in your pics, more variety with the background choices, and more spacing options, check out the Brellow Booth!Crown Palace Banquet Hall 0048

Photographer’s Info

As usual, and as I usually say, I used my usual combo! My D700 + 24-70 as well as my D7000 + 70-200. I also used my D700 +11-16 a lot as well.

I used my 2 light stands to do off camera light shooting and also used my new Monopod hybrid with tripod legs.

For the shot above, where it looks like a birds eye view, I went for an experimental setup. I went and used all my eBay gear haha. To get the height, I used my Monopod and extended it to the full 7 or so feet. To spread out the light, I used my Gary Fong lightsphere on my flash. To trigger the camera, I used my wireless trigger. So click! And it gave me a nice perspective that you don’t usually get 🙂 Gotta be creative to keep things fresh!
