sujatha and michael invited me to join them in new york for their beautiful wedding ceremony, held at the hindu temple society of north america in flushing, last august. it was as gorgeous and sunny a day as anyone could hope for, and such a wonderful combination of solemn ritual and loving fun in the ceremony! i loved seeing the couple’s family and friends take part in some of the ceremony rituals – it was truly a celebration of two families. local new york photographer lindsay taryn photo joined me as a second shooter for the day, and helped me make sure all the parts of this day were properly covered!
thanks so much, sujatha and michael, for allowing us both to be a part of your day :)
last summer this beautiful family invited me into their home to take some photos of their newborn daughter and their growing family. we started with their less-than-two-week-old baby girl, then brought in her adorable big sister, before taking some photos with the whole family.
priyanka and eddie were already married when they first met with me, but they were planning a special reception for the south asian sides of their families – priyanka is nepali, and eddie’s mother is punjabi – at the ritz-carlton at tyson’s corner in october 2013, which they also wanted photographed. at the gorgeously decorated reception there – complete with votive candles hanging from the ceiling like stars, glittering against the pink-purple uplighted walls – they shared photos from their earlier ceremony at brookside gardens, and a traditional ceremony, as well as their engagement which was also photographed. this reception was such a beautiful way to share that whole journey with their extended family and friends, and it was an honor for me to be the one capturing it. i also had the help, once again, of the fantastic angel kidwell as a second shooter. thanks again, angel, and many thanks of course to priyanka, eddie, and your families for allowing us to be a part of your journey!
erin and daniel’s wedding was held at the wayside inn bed and breakfast in ellicott city, maryland; originally planned for an outdoor, lakeside ceremony, the event was pulled entirely indoors due to the rain that day. but the cozy warmth of the inn just seemed to reflect the nature of this simple, sweet wedding. everything from the fragrant flowers handbound to the chuppah poles, to the catered barbecue and dessert varieties, spoke of the easy joy and intimacy shared by these two and their family and friends around them. it was an honor to be a part of their beautiful day – thank you again, erin and daniel, for allowing me to join you all!
