Srujana & Shafiq – Hyderabad, India

Traveling to the other side of the world to photograph Srujana and Shafiq’s wedding in Hyderabad, India was one of the most exciting and challenging experiences of our lives. We’ve shot so many Indian weddings in Texas but this was our first trip to India. Srujana & Shafiq actually live in Houston as well so we had the chance to meet them before we met in Hyderabad for the wedding week. After the Mehndi and Sangeet on the first day, we got to shoot portraits throughout the city. This was one of the most unforgettable days of my career as a photographer. Every time we picked up a camera to shoot, people swarmed in as they thought we were filming a movie. We typically love shooting in busy locations but are used to people going about their business while we work around them. In this case, we could not get people to ignore us. Srujana & Shafiq handled the attention with endless patience and by the end of the day, we all felt like we had accomplished something. The wedding itself was held the next day at Taj Krishna and consisted of both a Muslim and Hindu ceremony. It was a beautiful day to get married – twice. We were honored to have been asked to travel so far to capture the union of these two and know without a doubt that we will be seeing them again soon. Next time, much closer to home. Here are just a few favorites from the week:
