Yes, this is a shameless plug, but I had to do it. If you know of any couples starting to plan their wedding for 2005, 2006 or beyond, please refer them to me. I offer a $100 referral fee or a gift-card as a way of saying thanks. Obviously, your friends must sign on with my services.
Buzzword aside, what I do is pure wedding photojournalism. If my clients want me to shoot posed portraits, I am more than willing to oblige.
Here is what Bakul and Niru, one of my clients, had to say about my work:
Your behind the scenes approach has worked superbly, in that you've captured scenes and people as they are in their natural poise in whatever circumstance the shot was taken. The essence of the moment is there to be clearly seen in each shot. The pictures are alive, they contain movement, character and they speak to the heart. A slice-of-life captured for eternity. For us this definitely has an edge over the usual, sometimes awkward, posed,'say cheese' photographs with family and friends.
And, Kaity and Ken:
“Seshu did a great job documenting our wedding. Unlike most photographers, he was very flexible and easy to work with. He took pride in his work and it was apparent that he enjoyed doing it. We really like his photo-journalistic style, which aims to tell a story from beginning to end. For example, Seshu made an extra trip to NY just to take pictures of my first dress fitting. He also captured very special private moments that we will continue to cherish for years to come – one of my favorite pictures is the one he took of my neice dozing off inside the limo. She was dressed in a beautiful light pink dress with a small bouquet next to her – I can't remember whether its on the website – but the peacefulness of her expression, the lighting, and the softness of the dress and the flowers was just amazing. Its special moments like that that we remember most about my wedding. We think that most photographers will just do a good job capturing posed shots – which is nice – but the really great ones go beyond that to try to capture feelings and the sentiments. Many of Seshu's pictures did that and we are really thankful for them.”
