Last Saturday, just before the CPL Photo Club meeting, I wandered over to Eau Claire Market hoping to take photos of the buskers that usually play there. Instead, I found a beautiful East Indian wedding party in full celebration.

Men in bright blue tunics shouted, cheered and danced around a single drummer. Lovely ladies in their colorful traditional dresses danced arms raised just outside the circle of men. This groom and a little boy sat patiently on a sleepy-eyed white horse, just outside the dancing circle.

There were lots and lots of photographers there to document the event. The professional photographer and his assistants were there, of course, with their mono-pods and zoom lenses, but it seemed as though everyone attending the wedding party had a camera, as well.

Trying to photograph this lively wedding inspired me to write a wedding photography article for the CPL Photo Club blog.
