Recently, I was invited to photograph a local Indonesian wedding in a village near where we stay in Cisarua, Bogor. The reception was an afternoon-long receiving line where friends, acquaintances and family come to give their blessings and gifts, and then enjoy a buffet of food and live music. The wedding was very formal, but atmosphere was also lighthearted and very relaxed. Personally, I had a lot of fun with the challenge of capturing a wedding in a new context.

Congratulations Robert and Dia!

My wife Liz and I just embarked on a five month adventure in Indonesia, where we’re working with World Relief (an organization that provides services to refugees). After a couple of weeks here the culture is still very unfamiliar and I’ve been pretty shy about pulling my camera out. This last week, though, we were in Bali learning the language, and I had a little free to capture some images.
