Nina and Ankit

Allied Arts Guild, Menlo Park, California


From the first phone call, Nina , Ankit and I connected.  What an incredible couple.  Their wedding was a lot of "firsts" for me.  First traditional Indian wedding.  First time using a second shooter.  First time using a different assistant.  These two were so laid back and so easy going, that they put ME at ease.  Having never shot an Indian wedding, I didn't fully know what to expect.  I didn't know all the traditions, or customs, etc.  I wanted to make sure that I captured all the important moments, which is even more difficult when you don't know "what's coming" :)  

This wedding spanned two days.  On day 2 was the gorgeous reception at Devil’s Canyon Brewery in San Carlos.  It was decorated beautifully and not what you would expect from a place with "brewery" in the name.  It was elegant and warm (which is a perfect description of the couple themselves).  

I really feel lucky to have meet Nina and Ankit and their wonderful friends and families.  

Here are some selects to give you an idea of the beauty of the day. . .
