I contemplated for a long time on this whether I should publish the fact that sometimes I do some small gigs not strictly related to my business known as StevenK Photography, or other collaborative works with businesses or agencies. I made up my mind finally that I'll talk about these too. These jobs still speak my style, my work is in them after all.
What I am about to show is in the public domain and there's no company policy that says otherwise, so I guess it's alright to share. Although pardon me if I left off the credits by mistake.
So I did a Covid Micro Wedding a while back, my first cultural one for that matter. I had the opportunity to photograph a Nikah, which is basically the core function of a Muslim ceremony in my understanding. Due to Covid restrictions that time it had been held privately with a very limited number of guests, me and the Imam (the priest in a sense) included of course. It took only a couple hours unfortunately, but I wish I had more time as it was such an experience that left a fantastic impression in me of a this spectacular event in such a welcoming environment. Cultural weddings are sure going to be joyful for me, as there is so much to see and capture.
On this occasion though the whole scene took place pretty much in a room only - fabulously decorated nonetheless -, so I admit I had to compromise my composition a bit to encapsulate everything I wanted in a limited space available. I would have moved a bit more back here and there if I could to avoid lens shortening and depth of field challenges if you know what those are, but I'm still fairly happy with the results. :)
The editing is done by the agency I carried out this shooting for, so I don't necessarily agree with their choice of color grade and post processing, and they DO NOT represent my own editing style you can see across the website.
Anyway, my client was most satisfied with my service, as it would seem from her feedback and that is what matters the most to me. :)
And now the pictures, shall we?
Mind you this is a full gallery, not only the favorites. So they may get a bit repetitive as everything is captured in series to make sure we have at least one good photo of a moment.
PS: in the upcoming posts I'll share some long due galleries of previous weddings I did, so keep your eyes peeled! xx
