Wedding: Reema and Kartik at the Hyatt Regency

This fantastic wedding at the Hyatt Regency was a long time in coming. You’ll notice that this post leads off with an engagement shoot, which isn’t something I usually do.

It’s not an engagement shoot. It’s a new invention of mine I call a “Three-and-a-half-month-later shoot.”

Reema and Kartik’s wedding was so lively, so filled with fun and family and 600 guests, that the only time they could stop to have some photos taken on the wedding day was for 30 seconds as they lined up to enter the reception. So I posed to them a simple choice: We could either take five minutes away from the crazy, constant party to get some great shots, or we could have another more casual shoot later.

They chose the non-stop party, and I think it was the best choice, particularly when they started the night with a carefully rehearsed Bollywood dance.

When you talk about epic weddings, this is epic. Fantastic planning, as always, by Shaadi Chic. 600 guests. Multiple outfits, including Reema’s metal dress that was as heavy as it sounds — ladies, you constantly amaze me with your endurance — and Kartik’s late-night cow outfit. Yes, epic. I really can’t even show you the craziest stuff, so you’ll just have to imagine. Congratulations!

Wayne Yuan - Love the cow costume on the last picture.

Dustin Finn - Really awesome set…

daniel stark - beautiful colors–great captures!

fotograf nunta Iasi - Very impressive, as usually. ;)

David Fenwick - Fabulous selection of images Ryan. Also a very good call to postpone the bride and groom portraits rather than trying to rush them on the day. We’ve all been there! :D

Alex Mateisescu - Wonderful colors. Well done indeed, Ryan!
