Fusion Hindu-American Indian Wedding Reception at Empire State South | Day 2 | Atlanta Indian Wedding Photographer

Day 2 of this beautiful Hindu-American Fusion Indian wedding took place at Empire State South in Midtown Atlanta! Well before all that we got ready next door at the new Hyatt Midtown Atlanta before heading downstairs for some quick portraits in the courtyard of Empire State South. This was a great intimate venue that was perfect for a wedding reception, really cool that this amazing couple bought out the place on a Saturday night! The food was great and they even had awesome espresso, definitely a new favorite restaurant in Atlanta =). Now on to the amazing photographs from this amazing Atlanta Indian wedding!

Dilshad & Sabir | Cinematic Wedding Highlights | Cocoa Beach Florida Destination Ismaili Wedding

Here’s another video, back to back from the previous post because we did these two weddings back to back over the Holidays! First it was Samrina and Fraz in Augusta and the following weekend for New Year’s weekend we were over in warm and sunny Cocoa Beach, Florida for Dilshad and Sabir’s destination Indian wedding! And I do mean warm and sunny because when we got back to New York their was a frostbite warning with the snow, wind and freezing temperatures. So let this video take us back to warmer days as we celebrated the awesome Ismaili wedding of Dilshad and Sabir on the sandy beaches of Florida. I hope this video gives you a little glimpse into the fun and excitement that was permeating into every minute of our time in Florida, from the energetic Bhangra performances to the heartfelt Nikkah ceremony this weekend truly had it all.

2014 Wedding Photography Year in Review

It’s that time again, as another year draws to a close, to go through the archives and try to remember all of the weddings we photographed this year. 2014 was a big year for us, moving from Atlanta to New York, and continuing to photograph primarily Indian weddings in both cities. I know the pain those consultants feel jumping on a plane every weekend to fly from New York City down to Atlanta, but at least it’s a short flight and between two Delta hubs to make it super easy for me. Speaking of weddings though, every year I feel like I get just a little bit better if I do say so myself (and I do)! More amazing clients this year meant for more amazing photographs of beautiful brides and grooms in beautiful locations. In addition to photographing weddings in Atlanta this year I did Indian weddings in New York City (Manhattan and Brooklyn), Boston, and Savannah. I’m starting off 2015 with a wedding in Fort Lauderdale but that will have to wait for next year’s wrap up post =). Thank you once again to all of the brides and grooms and their families that have trusted us to capture their most important day!

Wedding Album | Indian Wedding Photography

I just got this premium wedding album back from the printers right before we left New York to photograph a pair of Indian Weddings in Augusta and Florida. These are our premium upgraded albums with a crystal cover, leather spine, and extra thick pages to give the album a super premium luxury feel. The parent albums were also upgraded to the full premium leather cover with die-cut center and embossed text. To cap off this awesome wedding album set, we also set up a deluxe art box with a cover from the reception to keep the album in perfect condition when not in view.

Atlanta Indian Wedding Video Highlight Trailer | Hilton Atlanta Northeast

Here is a quick post of a highlight trailer from a recent Indian wedding which took place in Atlanta right before we moved to New York. Just a quick highlight trailer from the wedding where we covered both photography and videography for this one day Hindu Indian wedding in Atlanta, Georgia.

Sue & Sunny’s Wedding Day 1 | Atlanta Guyanese Hindu Indian Wedding

Another wedding from the hot Summer in Atlanta which takes me back to warmer days as I sit here writing this blog post in the cold New York Winter =). Sue and Sunny had a Hindu wedding but this one was a little unique for myself personally because instead of a familiar Indian or Pakistani wedding this was a Guyanese wedding. Most of the Hindu wedding ceremonies were very similar but as is the case with most Indian weddings I photograph their are always a few unique ceremonies and traditions that keep every single wedding fresh and exciting! This blog post is just the first day’s Hindu wedding ceremonies, and the following day was a giant reception for their friends and family in the Guyana community in Atlanta. Sunny’s friends and family are from New Jersey and brought a bit of that Northern tradition to the fun and festivities! Enjoy these photographs from this beautiful Atlanta Guyanese Hindu Indian Wedding!

Dipal & Vinay’s Destination Savannah Engagement Session | Savannah Indian Wedding Photography

Here is an awesome engagement session from earlier in the year that I never got around to blogging! Dipal and Vinay are a super awesome couple and I am beyond excited for their Hilton Head, South Carolina Indian Wedding in early 2015! For their engagement session I headed down to Savannah where we spent the afternoon and evening heading out to the scenic Wormsloe Historic Site for it’s awesome live oaks at the entrance, before heading back to the Savannah Riverfront for some classic Southern charm. As the sun set we made one final stop to the nearby beach where we got some fun shots with balloons along the ocean. As Winter begins to hit here in New York, I am reminiscing for those warmer days for sure! Enjoy this awesome Savannah Destination Indian Engagement Session!

New York City from 10,000 Feet

Last week I was flying back from an engagement session in Atlanta, and got the window seat for a change because it was a short term booking of the ticket! Usually I prefer the aisle seat to work during the flight and get some photo editing done since that 15″ Macbook takes up the entire economy seat on a Delta plane =). Even though we live in New York I am basically an Indian wedding photographer based out of both Atlanta and New York and have been spending much more time on planes commuting between the two cities which are at least Delta hubs. The nice quiet flight is a good solid hour and a half I can just sit in a seat and at least organize photos from the current weekend’s trip whether it was down for an engagement session or the full weekend Indian wedding. Here are a few photos from the return flight out of Atlanta to LaGuardia, we flew over Manhattan a bit on the descent so got an awesome view of the city lit up at night.
