Judith & Pradeep – Catholic and Hindu weddings, New Jersey

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Combining a full Catholic wedding ceremony with a full Hindu one makes for a jam-packed eventful wedding day for sure especially with four locations. Judith and Pradeep tried to create a fusion of their personalities and their separate family traditions with Judith’s family coming from the Dominican Republic (she made a pretty impressive Indian bride though!) and Pradeep’s family from India. I think they did a fantastic job blending everything together. It’s what I love most about weddings in New York…the whole melting pot of cultures and traditions with an American twist.

I’m not a very gushy person when it comes to dresses, shoes, fashion in general….my sister will attest to that….but I have to say that I was in love with Judith’s beautiful blush pink ‘American’ wedding dress designed by Monique Lhuillier. And the shoes were pretty spectacular too. My decor favorite was the use of cherry blossoms for the centerpieces. I always associate cherry blossoms with the beginning of spring.

This is a longer post than most for good reason. There was just a lot going on.

Neha & Ranjit – NYC Engagement Portraits Part II

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

I wanted to post a few more photos from Neha and Ranjit’s engagement session from taken on the Highline and in Times Square. I think I only managed to convince them to do an early morning shoot on the Highline because it was close to Ranjit’s apartment, but it was well worth it. By 8:30am when we were finishing up it was already crowded. The thought bubbles made us laugh so we had to use them in a photo. I loved the changes in light that happen in the morning from that soft early light to cloud cover, to strong contrasty light. Then there’s the crazy neon lights of Times Square at the end of the day.
