New Series! Wedding Photography Behind the Scenes Vlog 1 | Afsheen & Shezan in Atlanta, Georgia March 23rd-26th, 2017

Behind the Scenes Vlog Travel Wedding

New series and new content here on this blog, my Vlog of Afsheen & Shezan’s Indian Wedding in Atlanta, Georgia from March 23rd-26th, 2017! As I STILL attempt to piece together all of the video footage from our 2016 weddings into a year-end wrap up video, I thought to myself, why not just do that fun, candid, behind the scenes look into Indian wedding photography and videography for every single wedding? Just throw together a bunch of quick and dirty edits into a behind the scenes vlog, and document what happens along the way at each wedding we do? Well, technically this is our 3rd wedding of 2017 already but I sort of count the first two we did, on the first two weekends of January, as sort of an extended Winter 2016 season as it really blurs together everything that happened from about May to January. After a brief 6-week “vacation” with no weddings, and just lots and lots of editing, it was great getting back to shooting a wedding last weekend and starting this new Behind the Scenes Vlog during the weekend! Most of the content was shot on my trusty Sony A7ii ILCE-7M2 but any shots of myself were grabbed from Ali’s Canon 5D Mark III or one of the stationary 5D Mark III’s that we shoot the majority of our wedding videos on. It’s a little tough to navigate trains and airports carrying two roller bags AND trying to shoot footage with the A7ii so maybe I need to figure out another solution for video, but for the most part the A7ii did great as a travel/vlog camera.

Check out Volume 1 of our Indian Wedding Photography Behind the Scenes Vlog and stay tuned here and on YouTube for more to come throughout the year!!


Here are a few quick preview photos from the wedding to see how all of this behind the scenes craziness turned out!

2012: Photography Year in Review – Engagement, Bridal, Travel, Landscape, etc!
Thanks for viewing yesterday's year-end wrap up post where I chose a bunch of my favorite wedding photographs from the year's 37 weddings. However, I of course didn't photograph ONLY weddings, I had a number of engagement sessions, bridal sessions, portrait sessions... and of course a BUNCH of photos of our son, Miles! So, rather than devote one blog post solely to engagement photos and one post solely to bridal photos, here is one giant "Miscellaneous" blog post for anything that is not a wedding photograph! To see a sampling of the 2012 wedding photography year in review click this link or scroll down on the blog =). And now, in no particul ...
Atlanta Bengali Engagement Ceremony | Muslim Indian Engagement at Elaborate Events & Rhodes Hall
Flashback Friday? Is their such a thing as SUPER FLASHBACK FRIDAY? I was going through the archives when talking with a bride about her upcoming Bengali American fusion Indian wedding, and looking through the blog posts I realized I never blogged this Bengali wedding and engagement session in Atlanta from years and years ago. This is definitely an older engagement session from before we moved to New York, but since I'm always down in Atlanta every other weekend for Indian weddings I don't mind the SEO boost for either term :). And it's much easier to whip up this photo heavy blog post from the engagement ceremony at Elaborate Events and Benga ...
Using a DSLR for HD Video Part 1: Shooting
Using a DSLR for HD Video Part 1: Shooting After my second attempt to put together a video, I thought I would share some tips and learning from the process. First, please take a look at this video, which was my first foray into HD DSLR video using the Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 7D: Babylon of the Orient from Zac & Betty FengLong Photography on Vimeo. One caveat, this is not my first edit of course! It took a lot of trial and error to get this one looking like it does above in the cutting room floor of Adobe Premiere Pro. However, I will speak about what works and what didn’t work as far as shooting the actual footage. This video will ...
