Montage Laguna Indian Wedding Bride Getting ReadyThough most of my Indian brides love color, I really adore black and white images, particularly when they highlight a lovely captured moment, as was the case with this Indian bride at the Montage Resort. I suppose my love of B&W photography comes from my earliest days pursuing this craft, when I shot Kodak Tri-X B&W film, hand-processed it in D76 developer, and made my own prints in a darkroom using Oriental #3 paper or Ilford Warm-Tone B&W paper. My first love was also photojournalism, which was traditionally shown in B&W. All the Life Magazine photography books showcased B&W photography by the true greats, thus stoking my imagination and instilling a sense that captured documentary moments were enhanced by B&W processing. I love the simple white orchid in this Indian bride's hair. Florals were provided by Bloom Box Designs, with coordination by Nikki Khan at Exquisite Events.
