Rangi & Pras / Part 1


One couple. Three weddings. Three countries – India, Sri Lanka & Australia.

After reading that I’m sure you’re asking yourself the same questions I first asked myself. Who? What? Why? Where? How? As I learnt more about Rangi & Prassana and their story, their religion and their culture I discovered that what they planned was perfect.

Part 1 of Rangi & Prassana’s story takes us to Southern India, not too far from Chennai. Prasanna and his family are Hindu and are from Chennai originally before they migrated to Australia many years ago. They have family who still live in India today whom I was lucky enough to meet.  Also, there were significant cultural sites, elements and traditions which made India an important first stop on Rangi & Pras’s three part love story.

Anyone who has been to India before knows how crazy the place can be – a total assault on the senses. Let’s be honest, it’s not for everyone but for me it’s food for the soul and there is peace to be found in its beautiful chaos. What is seemingly random seems to flow like poetry and it turns out the wedding itself was no exception. Photographically it was no easy task. In fact, it was bloody hard! I love a good schedule but the sooner I could let go of that feeble concept and release myself to the experience, the sooner I could fall into it and enjoy the ride I was on.  I could not have it without my love, Katie Harmsworth. I’m so grateful for how she immersed herself into this as she always does when I’m lucky enough to have her join me. For this wedding alone we shot over 5 days and took around 10,000 photographs.

Spending that much time with any couple you’re definitely going to get to know each other pretty well, but we could have never anticipated how well the four of us would connect. We shared special moments together, a few tears, and many, many laughs. Completely aside from the pictures below, what I really took away from capturing this story is the incredibly beautiful, joyful, and humbling experience and the precious human connections that I will always hold close to my heart.

  6. Ma. Rhenette Cabanero — The photos are breathtaking that are not divorced from reality. These photos capture a tale worth telling, and how each moment was artistically captured is something that a lot of couples only dream of having. I hope my friends Hannah Alcantara and Fernando Jativa will be able to win this! Their wedding will be on the 8th of July in Melbourne, Australia.

  14. Latha Deva — Ahhhh the feels!!! 😍 This collection belongs in a museum – it’s simply breathtaking and words don’t do it justice. Especially love the play with light and the shots framing their silhouettes. As an Indian, it’s honestly so refreshing to see your take on the traditional aspects of the ceremony. Many photographers, especially Western ones, find the colours jarring with the environment filled with lots of noise. You’ve effortlessly muted the clutter and singled out the couple so well, while focusing on all the important aspects of the ceremony. This is certainly testament to yours + Katie’s hard work to deliver only the best over and over again. Looking forward to their Lankan & Australian festivities! You’ve got a huge fan 💞
