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. . .
