Godhuli and Suraj’s Indian Wedding in Chicago

Godhuli and Suraj’s Indian wedding in Chicago was a colorful event as Indian weddings often are!

Friends and Family from all over the US, Canada, and India gathered in Chicago for a festive weekend of laughter. love, and Joyous celebration.

A mixing of cultures; Punjabi and Bengali, made for some wonderful photo ops. You will notice Suraj wearing both Punjabi Turban and the traditional Bengali

Hat, so ornate and beautiful! He somehow managed to keep them both on, a daunting task!

I was thrilled and honored to be a part of their beautiful day!

Congratulations to you both, wishing you a happy long life together!

A green wedding in Niagara

Niagara on the Lake is one of the most beautiful green settings for a wedding in Canada!  It is known as wine country.

The Reif Estates Winery was the location for Catherine and Dave’s beautiful day!

While Catherine was busy preparing for the ceremony, I was documenting her with her brides maids, all while nevously watching the unpredictable

weather conditions outside. Dark clouds were threatening the ceremony! Rain came, just a half hour before the outdoor ceremony was about to begin.

It looked dark and uncertain! Thankfully mother nature was on our side! As just five minutes before the ceremony, the clouds parted,  and the sun shined bright. Making for some beautiful light under the shade of a big  tree where the Ceremony took place! In terms of photography – Perfection!

I was thrilled! Catherine looked stunning! and the day went off without a hitch!

Congratulations Catherine and Dave!

Twice the fun – A Double Gujarati Wedding

After shooting a Double Gujarati Wedding in Florida a couple years ago, I never thought I would be repeating it again!

This time in Vadodora, which I just happened to be staying in the same hotel last year on the very same date for another Gujarati wedding!

Fate is a funny thing sometimes!

This time it was a brother and sister sharing the same weekend to tie the knot! Heetal and Heetan!

(Are you confused yet?)

Well not to worry,  Today I share with you the images of Heetal and Fenil’s wedding festivities.

(Heetan and Rihba’s wedding coming soon!)

New York Indian Wedding

I was thrilled to get the chance to shoot this New York Indian Wedding in June.  I never would have guessed to find such

beautiful green scenic landscape just 45 minutes from Manhattan. The location was The beautiful Renaissance Westchester Hotel. by Marriott.

Shweta and Rahul had a lovely Hindu wedding and the Hotel followed by a photo session at The Historic Caramoor House and Gardens.

A reception back at The Renaissance.  All in all a picture perfect day!

Congratulations Shweta and Rahul!

 

If your planning a New York Indian Wedding, do consider hiring a documentary Wedding Photographer to capture all the unplanned moments,

that you are sure to miss on the day!

 

 

 

 

One Love, Same Love!

After photographing Indian Weddings for the last 15 years, the passion I have for photography and India seem to blend more and more together, I am grateful that I have the freedom to follow my passion and express myself through my work! As photographers were are given great opportunities to show the world something they perhaps did not see themselves.  Perhaps through the power of the image you can change a persons perspective or even make them stop and think about something in a different way.  That is the great thing about photography, showing a part of yourself you may not be able to express in words.
