HINDU AND SIKH WEDDING: CONGRATULATIONS TO NEETA AND AMAN! It’s going to be a long day today for a Hindu and Sikh wedding at the Chase Center in Wilmington, but I am very excited to document this day for Neeta and Aman for Indian weddings are one of my favorites. There’s so much color and so much culture in these celebrations. And it even makes it more exciting knowing that this couple are so much fun to be with. Just check out the engagement session I did for them at Princeton University. We had so much fun!
TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY: GOOD FRIDAY COMMEMORATION… In commemoration of Good Friday, I wanted to share some of my works on a photo documentary I did in the Philippines on the Holy Friday Crucifixions, a tradition dating back hundreds of years. A special prayer for those who are suffering from any pain, physically or emotionally in this special day of Holy Friday. San Pedro, Cutud, Philippines: A boy looks at the nail on Ramil Lazaro’s hand while he is being crucified to the cross by villagers dressed as Romand Centurions during the Holy Friday rituals in Pampanga, Philippines. Lazaro is in his 10th year of crucifixion. Photo by Ron Soliman, WWW.RONSOLIMAN.COM
CAMDEN ADVENTURE AQUARIUM WEDDING: CONGRATULATIONS TO CATHERINE AND SHAWN! After coming back from a week-long wedding and a Safari adventure in Africa, I am all charged up to shoot a wedding back home, this time at the Camden Adventure Aquarium. Met Catie and Shawn last year after arriving from my trip from the Philippines. Great couple, and very nice to work with! That’s why I am so excited for their big day…we are going to have so much fun! Here are some images we shot in the Long Beach Island area, months before hurricane Sandy swept this whole area into devastation. I am glad we were able to shoot the beauty of the dunes at Long Beach Island before it was swept away – Love her ring on top of a sea shell. Congrats Catie and Shawn…thanks for making me part of your special day…
