There’s wedding receptions, and then there’s the wedding reception of Amitha & Anup’s. It went on all night, was mad, and I was saved the liberty of not having to shoot all of it. Goa is definitely the best place if you want to have a mad wedding party, that knows how to party hard!
The hotel was in a hotel, deep inside Calangute beach. The name of which eludes me now. Nice beach facing property. Nice decor and ambience. But really hopeless situation for candid photographers. One half was open air, and the area under the shack had a thatched roof. Which meant that one can get only red/brown light.
I don’t think anyone minded the colours though as it added a nice tinge to the mood. With the alcohol flowing, I didn’t have much trouble getting some awesome expressions of the wedding party.
Photography tip – Sometimes the best photo you take, is not the one properly framed, timed or exposed. You just need to be at the right place at the right moment. Like the last pic, where everyone’s shuffling to LMFAO’s Party rock anthem. A lot of friends found this the best pic of the night.
