Sneak peek for these two from their festivities last night!  So beautiful.  The sun had already gone down by the time we were able to do formals.  I loved what we were able to capture!  Congratulations you two!

I had to share this beautiful Indian wedding, that I shot alongside the talented Ruby Rideout this weekend at Ruby Hill, Palm Event Center in Pleasanton.  She invited me to second shoot with her, and this is now my fourth Indian Wedding that I have photographed.  I am excited to shoot more Indian Weddings in the future!  When my season slows down I will blog my photography from the full wedding day, but for now I wanted to share just a few from toward the end of this couple’s ceremony.  So beautiful.

I had the pleasure of working with this beautiful couple, as a second shooter for my local fellow photographer, Nudrat Owens.  I shot the wedding with her back in December, and I’m just now getting around to posting some images from the day.

This was my second Indian wedding, and I LOVE photographing them! All of the color and the friendly people make me… HAPPY. I spent the morning with the groom and his family for preparations.  We then met up with the families at the Sikh Temple in West Sacramento for some traditions prior to the ceremony.  The ceremony itself was beautiful!  We took an afternoon break, and then headed over to the Citrus Heights Community Center for their reception. I loved it, thank you Nudrat for having me join you!

I am so excited to share images from this gorgeous Indian wedding that I second shot for my friend Scott Fischbein this weekend.  I spent the morning with the beautiful bride, while Scott was with the men.  This day was so exciting for me.  I have always been fascinated by India and their beautiful traditions and it has been on my list to experience photographing an Indian wedding.  When Scott asked me to shoot with him, I jumped right on the opportunity.  I arrived at 7:30am, anticipating the unknown of the wedding day, especially this one with new ceremonies and traditions.  This family had two traditional ceremonies – first a Sikh ceremony, followed by a traditional Hindu ceremony.  It was beautiful watching both ceremonies… After the ceremonies and lunch, there was a very long afternoon break… then Scott and I were back to work in the evening at the Citrus Heights Community Center for the evening reception.  The food was amazing, the decorations were amazing, the saris were amazing, the ladies were so sweet.  It was a beautiful night and I was glad to have experienced this.  Thank you Scott!

The gorgeous bridal portraits that I was able to capture.  She really was just stunning…
