Wedding photos at the Taj Mahal in India

I stumbled upon this wedding or engagement shoot in Agra today with a young Sikh couple. I thought it was an absolutely unbeatable backdrop for some fun couple photos. You can't expect more than the Taj Mahal wth the sunsetting! I've been traveling through India for the past few weeks and have seen some of the most beautiful and incredible things ever. It's really a photographers paradise too, there are so many incredible backdrops and buildings. I saw quite a few traditional Indian weddings, one of the most memorable was in Dharavi slum in Bombay, where a young couple were dancing among a drug circle and all the local children and families were jumping around.

The Taj Mahal is the ultimate symbol of never ending love, built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial for his favorite wife Mumtaz Mahal. It is one of the wonders of the modern world and photographs do not really do its immense grandeur justice.
