Scenes from a Wedding

Some people know how to celebrate a wedding, in this case, two weddings: one traditional Indian, the other American. Or call it one Indian-American wedding. That’s the groom, Akaash, arriving on a white horse, above, with a young relative; below, his bride, Susanna. And the rest is all celebration and the melding of two families.

Joy Amid Joy

Flower girl Krisha couldn’t wait to give Susanna a hug as the bride was escorted in to begin the wedding ceremony — one moment of joy in the joyful wedding of Susanna and Akaash at Carnation Farms in Carnation, Washington, in late June. I’ve been working on these wedding photos since then, but I’m not done yet, so I decided I’d just get started and post one. It was a beautiful wedding that combined Indian and Western traditions.

Lake Crescent, WA

Lake Crescent curves along the edge of Olympic National Park, on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, a few miles inland of the Straits of San Juan de Fuca. It basically runs east-west and I happened to be there as the sun was starting to set last week. Spectacular landscapes in every direction in Washington. This was part of a trip west for a multi-cultural wedding near Seattle. More photos to come on that, the Olympics, Seattle and the San Juan Islands.

Camera note: First trip with the Fuji X100F, a small but not quite pocketable mirrorless camera with a fixed 35 mm-equivalent lens. You lose the zoom capability of another lens setup, but you gain a lot in portability. I used it throughout the trip. These were shot in RAW in color and processed into the Fuji ACROS black and white film simulation.
