Recent Work | Ashley & Gaurav’s Destination Hindu Indian Wedding at Poco Diablo Resort, Sedona, Arizona

Indian Wedding Wedding

What an honor to shoot this amazing couple! Betty and I had so much fun at this wedding. That’s the conundrum of destination work, it’s tough to be with Miles away from home for a few days, but when working with a couple at a destination venue you really become a member of the family for a few days and it makes everything so much more personal. On Friday all three of us got up at the unreasonable hour of 4:00 AM to catch the MARTA train down to the airport for our break-of-dawn flight out of Atlanta to Phoenix Sky Harbor. Landed, rental car, off to Gaurav’s parent’s house in Chandler (suburb of Phoenix). After spending the afternoon at the Mehndi party, everyone drove North for the short (relatively) 2 hour drive to Sedona in the mountains. The next day was Saturday, the wedding day of course, and after an amazing breakfast relaxing on the patio of Poco Diablo Resort, we went into full wedding mode for the rest of the day shooting the outdoor Hindu ceremony and partied all night at the reception. Betty had to turn in early prior to the reception to put Miles to bed but I rocked out the reception with some amazing photos as we danced the night away. Some how I convinced Ashley and Gaurav to fulfill my crazy idea to do a star shot and after the party we drove down the road for some amazingly unique shot of the bride and groom… and the MILKY WAY! It’s so cool up there in Sedona, the air is crisp and clear and we had the perfect night to see the stars. Enjoy these previews before the full blog post in a few weeks (and eventually the travel photos from our trip because we stayed a few extra days in Arizona to see the Grand Canyon, Antelope Slot Canyons, and more!).

Recent Work | Megan & Tom’s Wedding | Hazlehurst House | McDonough Wedding Photographer
Sometimes rain is a bad thing, but on a wedding day you make the best of it! Megan and Tom's wedding at the Hazlehurst House in McDonough, Georgia took place on an overcast March evening but the rain held off until the evening luckily! We were able to have the ceremony outdoors and then bring the party inside all night long. We did sneak out during the reception for couple's portraits when the rain finally arrived, and turned lemons into lemonade with a pretty cool portrait in the rain. Hopefully the rain on the forecast for this weekend in Atlanta holds off long enough for amazing wedding photos once again! More photos from this H ...
