Award-Winning Documentary Wedding Photography
Award-Winning Documentary Wedding Photography; “Fearless Photographers” is a directory of the finest wedding photographers around the world.
In the past, I have always been reluctant to enter photography awards as it always seemed to be a popularity contest in which photos won awards.
However, I quickly learned that this wasn’t the case with Fearless. So, one of my goals was to try to win a Fearless Award.
A panel of photographers judges the Fearless awards from around the world. For every 100 photos, only one photo gets a Fearless Award.
That’s less than 3% of the submitted images. Therefore, the competition is fierce. Thus, I thrilled one of my photos received my first Fearless Award.
I captured this photo during the Doli (also called the Vidaai), which signals the bride’s departure from her parental home. The bride is led away by the groom once the bride has thrown ‘phulian’ over her head.
There is a lot of crying during this time as the bride bids farewell to her parents, siblings, and family.
This photo captures the father of the bride handing over the responsibility of his daughter’s well being to her husband.
It is moments like these that show the powerful connection between the bride, groom and the bride’s father.
