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....

Two families, two cultures, two people, one love. This beautiful rustic and multicultural wedding took place at Union Hill Inn in Sonora, CA - the perfect wedding venue to celebrate the union of one incredibly diverse couple. Fitting two weddings in one day, Raj (Hindu) and Haley (American) honored both of their cultures, commemorating a heritage that remains a strong part of who they are. Raj and Haley spent the past 11 years growing in love and respect for each other, a fact that was evidently clear as we filmed their wedding day. Their families, fully immersed in their love for the bride and groom, actively participated in all cultural activities with open minds and cheerful hearts. This multicultural wedding brought all the colors and festivities worthy of celebrating the happy couple. The wedding day began with a western wedding as Raj and Haley exchanged their vows in a beautiful rustic barn at Union Hill Inn. Raj vowed "with every beat of my heart, I promise to love you - this is my solemn vow.” After exchanging their self- written vows, the bride and groom shared an intimate moment during the unity sand ceremony. Both partners poured sand into one single glass vase, signifying the union of their two lives. With excitement, the family continued the celebrations as they moved to the beautifully decorated gazebo for the Indian wedding. For the Indian wedding, the bride and groom incorporated traditional Indian rituals as they each walked in a baraat to the ceremony surrounded by family and loved ones. The couple participated in a puja ceremony, a traditional Hindu ceremony involving prayer, incense, flowers, and food. The marriage was officiated as the bride and groom walked around a fire four times, with the final lap led by the bride. With blessings from the priest, parents and loved ones, Raj and Haley were officially husband and wife. “Togetherness - that is what family is all about.” Spoken in truth by the bride’s father, the reception was filled with togetherness as both families joined as one in celebration of Raj and Haley. Embracing traditions...

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....

Traveling all around the country, I have seen some of the most spectacular wedding venues but I always love when a couple presents us with a new location or a different twist in their wedding. As a wedding videographer, new locations are always exciting and sometimes challenge me in different ways. When Levi and Bethany contacted me to film their very small wedding (some might even call it an elopement), I was so excited that they said it would take place outdoors, along the seaside bluffs of Mendocino California. I have driven past this part of the coast before and saw how beautifully the ocean and the bluffs all meshed together to create a very serene setting. Also, it was quite perfect that the bride, being a designer, had a great eye for natural beauty. What usually looked like undeveloped and rugged bluffs to most, was transformed into an elegant and timeless sensation to become the perfect venue for the two love birds to exchange their vows in the most intimate of settings. Every detail, no doubt planned by the bride months ahead, was molded to focus on the love the couple shared for each other, surrounded by their parents and siblings. Even their vegan lifestyle was reflected and celebrated on their big day! The two met back in 2012 while attending UPenn just around Valentine’s Day. During the last 6 years, their love has blossomed and as Levi put it, they “are entirely capable independently, but 100% better together.” They have discovered so many great qualities in one another and the two fit together like a “matching puzzle piece.” Levi popped the question around their five-year anniversary, surrounded by close friends, and soon after, they started planning their perfect wedding day. Levi and Bethany wanted to share their big day with a small and intimate crowd and something about exchanging their “I dos” on the cliffs that overlooked the Pacific Ocean made that moment significantly more in tune with nature. The couple both stressed their love for Mother Earth and wanting to capture more of that, we made a...
