Enjoy exploring it.

Charles Krug Winery Wedding: Hilary + John

I couldn’t wait any longer to share the images from this beautiful wedding that I photographed last week. Hilary and John are the match made in heaven. I loved every momemnt of being there, documenting their special day.

This was the most anticipated wedding of the year for me. Partly, becuase I wasn’t sure if I would be able to make to Napa to photograph their day being 38-week pregnant. But hey, I made it there and did it very well. Hilary was a stunning bride and John was incredibly kind and good looking groom that I could ever expect to meet. This was the first time I was meeting them, as I only spoke to them on phone before John and Hilary had their destination wedding in Napa.

Travelling from their southern california home to the wine country up north, Hilary and John couldn’t have picked a better venue for their wedding. The wedding took place right where John asked Hilary to marry him during one of their recent visits, at the grounds of Charles Krug Winery. It was the perfect destination wedding for them. Black and white theme through out the wedding and reception kept the colors neutral and elegant. And the bridal party was super fun. I had the opportunity to catch up with Hilary and John while photographing their moments. John is a renowned Chef who is participating the Culinary olympics this year in Germany. Could this be any more exciting!

Hilary and John – Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day. I was honored and thrilled to have witnessed your joy. I am so happy for your both and I wish you the very best for the life ahead…bring it home Chef!

Sacramento Wedding Photography: Avie + Vini Wedding Reception

Avie and Vini ended their 3 day long wedding festivities with a super fun wedding reception. Vini was dressed with crystal from top to bottom; every spec of her outfit had shiny crystals all over. The gorgeous couple graced the evening by walking in to the reception hall with a classic Indian movie song that I actually grew up listening to many many times. Fond memories rushed back to me right away!

Avie and Vini – I couldn’t be anuy happier for you. You two are incredible and I wish you a world of happiness ahead…

Many THANKS to Stacey Marsh, my new photographer friend, who help me photograph this wedding. Also to my husband for coming down to help me at the reception…I definitely needed that help

Sacramento Wedding Photography: Vini + Avie

Avie and Vini had a beautiful wedding at the West Sacramento Sikh Temple (Gurudwara). It was a fine winter morning, felt more like late fall. After the ceremony and traditional rituals were over, we found the coolest spot to take some photos of the newlyweds. Fall colored Willow tree, yellow leaves on the ground and the gorgeous couple, that’s everything we needed to produce some gorgeous images.

Avie and Vini are two incredibly nice people. For me, it was friendship at first sight! They are a perfect match made in heaven. There was no doubt that these two bring extreme joy to each others lives. My photographer friend Stacey and I had super fun time photographing this special day for this couple.

Gorgeous Indian Bride Vini: Roseville Wedding Photographer

Contemporary elegance, sophistication, beauty with a great taste, down to earth are just a few words to describe Vini. And her bridal look perfectly represented her style. I was honored to photograph Avie and Vini’s wedding last December. These are just a few from Vini’s early morning pre-ceremony getting ready session. Isn’t she gorgeous?

Highlights: 2011

This is beyond my belief that the year is over! Just a couple more hours to go, and we will step on to the new year of 2012. 2011 was eventful for me, in SO many ways. I have photographed only 7 weddings (the number I targetted) and numerous portrait sessions this year. I had the opportunity to meet so many incredibly nice people through this channel. I am extremely thankful for the kindness and love I have received. This experience continues to give me more than I ever imagined.

My website got a new look this year (by the amazing designers at Flosites), along with a new name and branding for my business. I have been introduced into the South Asian wedding community in the Sacramento area (and beyond). This is something new for me, I have to say, I am thoroughly enjoying the cultural wedding flavors. I don’t know what awaits in 2012. I can only continue to improve my work, do better as I grow and be humbled by all the kindness I receive every day.

Here are some highlights of 2011. It was hard to put together just the favorites, ’cause the favorites only don’t complete my story. And the story I want to share involves many faces and hearts that made my 2011 so beautiful.

Here’s to a prosperous 2012.

Happy New Year!
