This Indian Engagement Photography session looks like it's straight out of an Indian movie. Gorgeous colors and outfits and the perfect mix of candid, posed and even glamour photos. The couple, from the Bay Area, wanted me to capture engagement photos with an unique classic Indian look. I took on that challenge and I think we pulled it off perfectly.We chose San Francisco, California for our location as it has a few of my favorite spots and also a great variety of scenery to work with. In these photos, you will see both nature and city photos. We planned for 4 different shoot ideas: a classic Indian look, a casual look with balloons, a romantic scene with props and a glamour shoot to finish off the day.I'm sure you will enjoy this Indian Engagement Session and you'll find it as the perfect inspiration for your own engagement photos....

I have been filming weddings for over a decade now but you wouldn't believe the jitters I get the morning before filming a wedding. I still wake up before each wedding nervous and anxious. But, that excitement is even heightened when we plan a complex Same Day Edit that requires our team to be on our toes every second to catch exactly the right moments that will be included in that edit. It's a film that is still in the editing process 15 minutes before "show-time" but we challenge ourselves to include moment like the Grand Entrance and First Dance into the Same Day Edit and show our masterpiece just minutes after it happens. Those 15 minutes are stressful but rewarding when we see the couple thrilled and captivated by what we managed to capture. It's a humbling and rewarding experience for us but more importantly, the bride and groom love seeing the highlights of their day just moments after they occur. See why they loved it! Additionally, there is a deeper look of what goes into filming and editing this Indian Same Day Edit....

We loved being part of a wedding that takes place in one of the worlds more romantic places - Sonoma County, more specifically, Vine Hill House. The wedding was beautiful and we loved telling Tom and Shelbi's wedding story. We take Sonoma County Wedding Videography to another level.We love filming. Period. Additionally, we like to bring tools to each wedding that are not necessarily part of the wedding cinematography package. We want to tell an amazing wedding story, and many times, it requires thinking outside the box - we have to be wedding film makers. Drone shots allow us to capture footage that is breath taking from the sky. Jib/Crane shots allow us to show the venue and other aspect of the wedding decoration in a way that is more cinematic and beautiful. Besides all the typical tools like tripods and glide-cam, we are able to create shots on another level that many other wedding videography companies will try to compete with. We love setting the bar high and I believe that this wedding video sets the bar pretty high. Capturing the wedding is not the end of the process. We love telling the story with out edits. It is as important to be a good wedding videographer as well as a really good editor. It doesn't matter what software you edit in (we use Final Cut Pro X - FCPX), but it matters how we put the story together. I believe that our editing is as strong and in tandem with our filming. That allows our end product, a cinematic wedding film, to be beautiful, emotional and heartfelt. A true priceless memory for the bride and groom. Enjoy this wedding short film....

When we arrived at Green Gate Ranch and started filming - we knew that the next 4 days would be a blast. The beautiful couple was full of energy, smiling and enjoying their wedding days. We loved becoming part of the family for a few days to capture the story of Ricky and Preeti! Behind the scenes, working as a cinematographer on this 18 hour wedding day, it was not all fun and games. Even though the wedding was beautiful and fun, it honestly pushed the limits of our team - physically, creatively and emotionally. Some weddings, a beginner can film them (they are simply easy). But this wedding, you had to be a true professional to pull off great footage. I'm a proud that our team did just that. We communicated all day on long range walkie-talkies (this was super important), walked/ran about 9 miles (my fitness tracker can prove that), and best of all, we captured some beautiful footage!...

Filming a wedding all over California pretty much sums up this wedding. Navkarn, Dilraj and their family challenged all of our team for over 1 week. We travelled to San Diego, back to Sacramento and finally back to San Diego to finish of their wedding reception with a Same Day Edit. It was really a blast and a challenging experience....

This is literally hot off the press. We just premiered it a few hours ago at the wedding reception a few minutes after their GRAND entrance. We literally had a few minutes to edit the grand entrance and the first dance into the same day edit before we had to show it. It was pretty amazing to have a team that was able to pull this off....

Most people love dog photos. How about dogs in an engagement photoshoot? That’s exactly what we did when Nishi and Sukh decided to do their engagement photos in the park. After we finished the little session with the dogs, we went to Santana Row in San Jose for some night shots of just the gorgeous couple. Check out the results....

Los Angeles is usually a vacation spot for most people in December. For us it was more than a vacation. We got to travel with our team to Huntington Beach to film and photograph a beautiful four day Pakistani wedding. Photographing such a gorgeous and fun couple definitely felt like we were on vacation rather than working. Enjoy the beautiful moments I captured....

Along with other cultures and religions, we have been filming a lot of Indian weddings lately. One of the most popular products that we have been producing is the Same Day Edit video. It is something the bride and groom anxiously wait for and the guests love watching a video that highlights and shows the story of a complete 5-day Indian wedding. It is definitely a stressful challenge and takes a lot of time, effort, and a great team. We at Aperina Studios are never afraid of challenges and so we again took on the challenge to produce another unique Same Day Edit video for our beautiful couple. Even though we have produced many SDE videos, we always try to make each one unique and tell the original story of each couple's wedding weekend. Here is what we saw through our lens while filming the beautiful wedding of Paramveer and Raman.The bride couldn't stop smiling while watching the video during the wedding reception, we hope you love it as much as she did. Enjoy this Indian Wedding Same Day Edit....

I have been doing wedding cinematography for over 9 years, but before every wedding - I'm naturally really nervous. I have many years of experience under my belt, however, each and every wedding I approach delicately and carefully. I prepare myself and my team with a challenge - we want to make sure we create an amazing memory and a masterpiece for each couple. Umang and Shivani's wedding was no exception.I met with Umang and Shivani a few weeks prior to their event, got to know them and their story a lot more, scouted the venue, talked in detail about their event and even chose the garage that I will be editing my Same Day Edit in. During the 3 days of wedding events, we filmed 96 hours collectively as a team capturing their beautiful wedding story. We challenged ourselves to include the couple's first dance into the Same Day Edit - something that was way too close to the premiere. I finished editing the Same Day Edit ten minutes before showtime in the little garage and took the exported file to the reception tent to play on the big screen.I'd love for you check out Umang and Shivani's Same Day Edit....

I love filming weddings and I love it even more when we get to travel with our team to new, beautiful places and capture the love stories of different cultures and religions. Ozma & Amer had their beautiful four day Pakistani wedding in Los Angeles, CA with the final day wedding reception at the gorgeous Hyatt Hotel on Huntington Beach. Our team packed up an SUV and headed to LA to film for four days. This was definitely an epic trip for us as we got to meet many friendly Pakistani people, got to try delicious new food, and got the privilege to work with an amazing couple who not only trusted us with filming their wedding but challenged us to edit and show a film of their wedding weekend on the wedding reception. Here is what we produced....
