This Indian wedding was initially planned as a “low key, really relaxed and chill vibe” wedding. However, it grew to a grand, epic and beautiful Indian wedding that even had a giraffe in it. Amish and Megna’s extravagant wedding was at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu , CA - a spectacular 1000 acre wedding venue overlooking the San Monica mountains. We hope you enjoy this cinematic Indian wedding film of Amish and Megna. This wedding was absolutely amazing for us as wedding cinematographers to film. The rolling hills, exotic animals and vineyards at this location made this wedding venue very easy to capture in this film. More importantly, the couple, Amish and Megna, were a bliss to capture on their special day. Their first look expressed it all when the groom proclaimed “oh lord, what’s happening” as he saw his beautiful bride for the first time that day. We arrived early morning to Saddlerock Ranch to capture shots of the bride getting ready with her bridesmaids and the bridal details. It was also at this time that we had the opportunity to film some shots of this unique venue- this was the first time we ran into Stanley the Giraffe. Surprised with how close we could get to him, we even had the chance to pet him. Moving on, we continued to film the groom preparation leading up to the super emotional first look. The wedding then took a cultural shift as the baraat (groom's wedding procession) started down the road. Accompanied by a dhol drummer, the groom, along with his family and friends, made their way to the bride’s family who eagerly waited for him. After a few short prayers, blessings, and cultural ceremonies, all the guests joined together under a huge ancient oak tree for the Indian Wedding Ceremony. Hindu wedding ceremonies are intricate with many cultural rituals. This presents us with many amazing opportunities to capture stunning and emotional footage. We as wedding cinematographers want our films to capture stories from the wedding day. All the ceremonial rituals, prayers, and wedding vows served as a strong story telling aspect in this wedding...

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....
