Milwaukee Hindu Wedding: Sindhu & Dheeraj!
Sindhu and Dheeraj got in touch with us about their Milwaukee Hindu wedding with only a few weeks to go until the big day. What a great surprise to start our year! Luckily, Lidia was still available when they called and we were able to quickly work out the details and add this colorful experience to her calendar! Not only is the food simply delectable at Indian weddings, but it is also always a treat to tell the story of a culture so different from our own. There’s a great deal of trust that goes into choosing a photographer and we appreciate the faith Sindhu and Dheeraj put in us!
Hindu weddings are always a unique experience. They are steeped in ageless tradition, filled with vibrant color and have an endless array of details just begging to be photographed. Lidia was especially excited to be invited into the getting ready process. The intricate process Sindhu went through to prepare was guided by those closest to her, each assigned to a specific role which bonds everyone together. It also featured more jewelry than anyone could hope to see in one room!
We’ve had the pleasure of documenting a couple different weddings at the Hindu Temple of Wisconsin. Sindhu and Dheeraj’s ceremony was the most colorful by far. The fact that we were making our very first color Moving Picture Show only added to our excitement to see how this all came together.
As photogenic as these two are, it’s hard to believe they aren’t models and didn’t even have an engagement session with us! Their comfort with each other and Lidia’s mastery of harsh mid-day light went a long way toward these photos being as stunning as they are.
