Elegant, Cultured, Timeless - those are the words we would use when describing the pictures captured on Harman and Navroops wedding day. As an Indian wedding photographer, paying attention to the little details is especially important for such a colorful and intricate culture. Featured on the Crimson Bride, each detail of the wedding was beautifully shared creating an amazing story celebrating the journey of Harman and Navroop. Harman and Navroop met each other through a set up planned by mutual friends. After meeting over a cup of coffee, they both quickly realized how perfect of a fit they were for each other and began dating. Harman, being the romantic, wrote down all of the many special moments they’ve shared in a notebook and asked Navroop to marry him. That same romance lived on as we photographed their wedding day. Leading up to the big day, Navroop thought through every detail working jointly with jewellers to customly design each jewelry piece for every outfit. Together with We Do Designs, the wedding was filled with beautiful and unique moments that was a dream for an Indian wedding photographer to capture....

Nestled just outside of Galt is a charming southern colonial style property called Grace Vineyards, a serene winery and wedding venue where Solomiya and Dillon exchanged their wedding vows and hosted their family and friends in this peaceful sanctuary worthy of the occasion. From the moment that we first met to go over their wedding, I had an instant connection with Solomiya & Dillon, or as my wife calls them ‘the real life Barbie and Ken’. Their genuine, sweet, kind-hearted, down to earth, and sincere love for one another and Jesus was felt throughout the whole wedding day. The way they looked at each other. The way they smiled and laughed. The way they held each other. The way they interacted with their family. I had a blast capturing all of these moments. I hope these winery wedding photos of Solomiya & Dillon make you smile just as much as I smiled while being their Grace Vineyards wedding photographer....

I have been an Indian wedding photographer since 2014 and still the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel is one of my most favorite wedding venues to photograph in. So you can imagine my excitement when an Indian bride tells me that I get to capture her wedding photos in one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the Bay Area. When Sonia and Harman contacted me, I had a great feeling about their wedding. Not only was the couple exceptionally beautiful, they also had Amrit of Anais Events on their team to plan every detail of their wedding. Well, just as I predicted, I enjoyed photographing this beautiful Indian wedding. Beginning from the moment Sonia was getting into her red lengha to their first dance in the Grand Ballroom and even up to the final dance offs at the end of the reception. The love shared between the couple and the families was very evident and it was a pleasure capturing all of the beautiful, candid moments through my lens. Enjoy over 100 wedding photos from this beautiful Sikh Indian wedding at the Fairmont San Francisco hotel. ...

All around the word, brides dream about their big day and a Destination Wedding in Napa Valley is an ultimate fairytale for many couples. They envision saying "I do" on the beautiful hilltops of the world-renown wine country. For one couple, this fairytale came to life and we were honored to capture their most tender and silly moments on their wedding day. Chris and Anna traveled from Los Angeles, California for their July wedding in the Wine Country Inn & Restaurant Madrona Manor. Their family and wedding guests flew from all over the U.S. to celebrate their wedding day in a grand estate mansion surrounded by enchanted gardens nestled into a beautiful hilltop of the Napa Valley vineyards. Though I have photographed several weddings here before, Madrona Manor is still one of my favorite wedding venues to photograph for the natural and effortless beauty it offers....

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....

Photographing weddings of past friends is always special because you get to remember the good old days you had in the past. Faythe went to Albert Einstein Middle School and West Campus High School with my brother Vitaliy and I in the early 2000's and we were all good friends. When she called us and told us that she was getting married in Fresno, we were happy that she thought to invite us to her wedding. But that is not exactly why she called. She told us that she has been following our artistic work after high school, fell in love with our work and wanted to hire us to photograph and film her wedding. We were very excited to hear that we would not only be guests at her wedding, but would have the opportunity to tell of her wedding day through photos and a beautiful wedding film (Fresno wedding photography). Here is how her and Josh's beautiful wedding day went. Enjoy the photos!...

Capturing weddings during the middle of the week usually means the wedding is going to be small, elegant, and personal. That is exactly how Adrian & Christiana's wedding was. The handsome groom flew in from London. The gorgeous bride flew in from the Caribbean. The groomsman flew in from Sweden and the bridesmaid (with her husband) from Canada for this destination wedding. There were a total of five people present at the wedding (six with the officiant). This is exactly how the bride pictured her wedding. We at Aperina Studios came with our three crew members to bring the total number of people to 9. This was the smallest wedding I think we have ever photographed or filmed but we had such an amazing time capturing the intimate wedding elopement these five best friends were having in the beautiful Madrona Manor in Healdsburg, CA. Enjoy the Next Day Edit and expand the post the view a lot more photos!

Summers are crazy for us wedding photographers!! Mine was no different. I've been so busy lately with photographing many gorgeous wedding, doing different photo shoots and other little projects, but it's about time to update our blog with some new photos from an amazing wedding I did about a week ago. I photographed Vitaly and Sveta's gorgeous wedding on September 18 right after shooting another wedding the day before. With formated cards, fresh batteries, and a Rockstar energy drink the next morning I set out to the grooms house with an amazing feeling. I was really excited to shoot the wedding of my new friends but also as excited to use my tilt-shift lens. That Saturday was just one of those days where you just don't know where the ideas keep coming from. Vitaly, the groom, recently came to America and I thought that it would become an issue with the different styles but I was amazed at the modern mentality he had. They were both very stylish and knew how to pose, requiring only a little bit of correcting from my side. The engagement session was amazing, the wedding was gorgeous and very lovely, and the second-day-shoot (SDS) we did in San Francisco was very beautiful and sexy. This blog post tells the story of their wedding day and includes my favorite photos from each of the three photo shoots I did for this amazing couple. Enjoy...

I photographed Justin & Annmarie's wedding two days before their SDS. Their wedding was located on a beautiful golf course. It was an amazing and fun wedding with lots of dancing and some emotional moments. We ended the evening with a couple amazing silhouette shots on the golf course with the beautiful purple sunset in the background. I love photographing weddings but I love photographing second-day-shoots even more. The reason for this is that I, as the photographer, am in charge of the whole day. I love control!! I don't abuse it, but use it to set up amazing shots using the time I need and the places I think will look amazing...
