Kati said she really wanted to trash an old wedding dress and so I oblidged of course.
Festival of Colors is the perfect place for it… such a fun atmosphere and so photogenic.
I’ve been doing the documenting thing at Festival of Colors for a couple of years and taken crazy amounts of pictures… it was time for some planned pictures.
Kati is gorgeous so it helps.
She said she’d bring along a friend that could model for the groom and have a unique look.
Leandro was not only great as a model… but he brought a trailer that made the day so nice. I could sit down and relax and even eat some of their food and not have to stand in the long lines for the festival.
As you can see here they are nice and clean at the beginning of the shoot… far from the crowds wielding colored powder.
This is at the end of the experience after being pelted probably hundreds of times.
Here both her children and his take the opportunity to pelt them with even more.
(Above) Here they brave the actual crowds
We focused on Kati for a little bit.
There is so much dust in the air that the lighting can change drastically from one spot to the other.
Then in these shots I wasn’t using off camera flash and went with the bright light look. (It was an overcast day to begin with)
A couple of my favorites… the one below is as they ceremoniously light the witch on fire.
Gotta love the hand print.
Getting out some of the colors from the hair
Then we were done and headed back to the trailer and decided this was quite the scene and it needed to be documented properly.
A little white trash style. I happen to think it’s the funniest thing ever. Some of my favorite pictures.
Kati will probably say she looks pissed off… but that’s perfect (i think)
It does help the effect that we used the Cheese Balls earlier in the day
(Below) Then there’s this picture… the wind was blowing and it just kinda ended up being this… which was kinda planned but kinda not. And for some reason I really like it but I’m not sure if it’s appealing to anyone else… it’s just not that typical (and I’m not sure if that’s good in this case)
So sound off about those and the others.
So I think I covered the range from Pretty, to Funny, to Neat to downright odd.
Go here to see more shoots I did that day
