Indira and James had a very small wedding planned. Very intimate, very low key but they wanted awesome pictures. I sat down with her a few months ago and we brain stormed about the time line and what could be done. Her ceremony was at 7:30pm which would be way past dark not allowing any portrait opportunities with daylight. This is normally not a huge deal but Indira really wanted some cool pictures. I threw out an idea…what if she got ready in a really awesome hotel. A hotel that would have modern decor and areas we could take great pictures in and also located in an area where we could walk around and get some urban portraits as well. I suggested the Viceroy Hotel in Brickell, Miami. She made the call and agreed.
This is really a very different post than most of my work. Most brides hire me because of my photojournalism approach and my candid captures of emotion. That was important to Indira as well, but because we tailor made the timeline specifically for portraits this post is heavy on the portraits. Even though I am a photo-journalist at heart, I do have a strong appreciation of fashion. This wedding allowed me to play to my heart’s content. I hope you enjoy the images.
A quick portrait in the hallway of the Viceroy. Sometimes you have to keep your eyes open for amazing lighting in ordinary places. This is lit only with the regular scone light in the hallway.
First look time. James seeing Indira all dressed up for the first time.
We took family portraits by the bay. I am not posting the family formals but these are some moments in between that I found fun.
The ceremony took place in St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in South Beach, Miami.
