Varsha & Apurva I Indian wedding I Franklin Lakes I New Jersey

Saturday, May 7th, 2016

It’s unusual for Indian weddings to be small affairs, but Varsha and Apurva had their hearts set on a small, intimate family wedding their at their home in Franklin Lakes. Though the rain meant moving the wedding indoors, it had no impact on the joy of the day for the happy couple and their families. The at-home wedding definitely came with a few unusual moments such as the groom answering his cell phone mid-ceremony and a time out to adjust the thermostat for the comfort of the guests (also by the groom while tied by a scarf to his bride).

Betsy & Sibin I Destination Wedding I San Juan, Puerto Rico

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

I love destination weddings. It’s a wonderful thing to have a small group of family and friends spending time together over several days to celebrate a wedding. Betsy and Sibin couldn’t have chosen a better location than Old San Juan for the their wedding. It was sweet moment to have Betsy’s mother walked her down the aisle of Holy Trinity Methodist Church in the absence of her father, who had passed away. One of my favorite photos is of Betsy and Sibin leaving the church with the words “God is Love” at the door. The Hotel El Convento was a beautiful location for portraits. A big thanks to Kathi Littwin for working with me on this wedding.

There were too many photos to share so please check on the second blog post that shows off more of the couple’s portraits and the beauty of Old San Juan in a day after shoot.

Betsy & Sibin I Destination Wedding Portraits I Old San Juan, Puert Rico

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

One couldn’t ask for a more beautiful location for a wedding than San Juan in Puerto Rico.  The problem was choosing between the many wonderful places a portrait session. We decided to do a day after session before flying back to New York and the lovely Castillo de San Cristobal and on the streets of old San Juan.  The Fort completed in 1783 is a national historic site and  built by Spain to protect the city against attacks.

Aditi and Mick’s wedding on Maharani Weddings.com

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Maharani Weddings is a fantastic blog for Indian brides. They did a beautiful job selecting photos from Aditi and Mick’s wedding at the Hyatt Morristown in New Jersey and showcased them in several posts last week.  All the details of their wedding reflected the couple’s  individual style.  I hope you’ll check out the images on their blog.

Reshma & Ravi, Bronx Botanical Garden

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Not many couples would attempt to train for a major sporting event taking place the same week as their wedding, but that’s what Reshma and Ravi decided to do before their July 24th wedding this summer.  They strike me as a couple who like challenges so it seemed in their nature to juggle to major events in their lives.  Their wedding was probably the hottest day of the summer with the temperature hovering at 100 degrees.  The great staff at the botanical garden discreetly put fans around the outdoor ceremony to keep the guests cool!

Aditi & Mick, Indian wedding, Morristown, NJ

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

Aditi and Mick’s wedding was July 4th weekend. They had all the traditional elements of an Indian wedding and managed to have the wedding day reflect their personalities as well.  I have countless photos of Aditi, in particular, laughing like crazy so I know they enjoyed the day thoroughly.  There were plenty of people to share the happiness with too, with 8 bridesmaids and groomsmen and hundreds of guests.  It was a long, long day…15 hours in total and lots of fun.

The couples I’ve worked with probably have a good idea that I’m a bit irreverent about things and like to look for the details that show the humorous and unique things about each wedding along with capturing the beauty and emotions of the day. A few of the photos below are perfect examples of that:  Both Aditi and Mick had the same tattoo (below).  Aditi came up with the ingenious idea of using suspenders to keep up her very heavy beaded skirt in place, which I thought was a brilliant idea. It’s the first time I’ve seen a plastic bag used to help slide bracelets onto a bride’s arm. And for some reason, I really liked the fact that the garlands were carefully laid to rest on the tv in the bridal suite at the end of the ceremony.

I can’t speak highly enough about the staff at the Hyatt Hotel in Morristown or the wonderful iced tea in the lobby which really helped with the heat!

I also had the pleasure of working with Anoli, her husband, and the rest of their crew from Shaadi Story for the first time. They were great about coordinating the video with my photography.  I’m looking forward to seeing their video of the wedding.

WPJA Contest

Monday, July 13th, 2009

The judges of the Wedding Photojournalism Association (WPJA) selected this photo for recognition in the quarterly contest for 2009 from a wedding I photographed in March in Bangalore. I’ve been meaning to post a selection of the images, but in the meantime I thought I’d share this one image.
