Emily and Gaurav’s wedding weekend was the most colorful, beautiful and detail-filled wedding adventure I have ever had the pleasure to document. Four days, innumerable ceremonies and rituals, families and friends traveling from all over the world and a deep spirit of celebration made up this amazing experience. This is just the first taste of the photos to come. I loved photographing Emily having her henna done. The process is so long and the henna so intricate, it made for fun moments and great textures and light to play with. It was incredible to see henna artist Jumana Bootwala free hand the entire design on both of Emily’s hands and forearms (front and back!) as well as both of her feet. Her inspiration was drawn from Emily’s white wedding dress for her non-Indian wedding and was done a few days before the Indian wedding to allow for a darker color. Apparently, a new bride is not supposed to do any housework until her bridal henna has worn off…I hope Emily’s lasted a long time! These are my favorites from the henna process. More photographs from Emily and Gaurav’s two weddings to come soon!
