Uma and Nandini's Indian Wedding in Detroit, MI

I boarded a plane to head to Detroit to photograph Uma and Nandini's wedding when they announced on the speakers that is was going to be a bumpy ride! And boy was it a terrible flight. I thanked God when we landed and swore that I will drive to the next wedding, although I'm pretty sure that won't happen. But the flight quickly faded into a memory as the excitement of having the honor of photographing a beautiful friends wedding kicked in- Uma and her now husband Nandini. Uma is a fearless preacher and sincere friend who is liked by so many. The wedding was packed with family and friends literally from all over the world! From England to Africa and to iIndia- you name it and someone probably flew in from there. The most magical things is that the entire wedding was coordinated by her friends and Family! Uma showed some serious trust in the process, and the wedding came out beautifully. The wedding took place in the Ann Arbor Marriott at Eagle Crest. I loved that the ceremony site was situated amongst lush greenery including tall pine trees and open golf fields which was perfect for formals. Their Color scheme was Pink, Red and Gold with beautiful rose floral arrangements draping the mandap and reception hall.

 

Check out the beautiful Ceremony stage! We want to wish Nandini and Uma an amazing journey together as husband and wife

Sheerin and Naren's Romantic Indian Wedding at Holy Trinity Church Reception Center

Sheerin and Naren's wedding was absolutely stunning. The vibrant Hindu ceremony started before the break of dawn followed by a reception in the evening.  For their reception, Sheering chose a stunning gold embroidered maroon velvet lehenga skirt paired with a matching choli embellished with a gorgeous pink and gold dupatta. Naren wore a tuxedo with a matching bow.  I'm in love with their images and even more in love with them as a couple. They are truly the sweetest people that you will meet! The Trinity Church reception center was transformed into the most stunning space thanks to event designers at Dreams to Reality and their wedding planners with Anna Christine Events. The wedding was a feast for the eyes with an amazing reception to top it off. It took us one whole hour to photograph all of their wedding details from both the ceremony and reception. The festivities and choreographies performed during the reception kept the couple and guest entertained until the very end before being driven away in a blue antique Rolls Royce. I'm beyond excited to share their images today! I also want to wish Sheerin a very happy birthday- this sneak peel could not come at a better day! Please send all of your blessings to the lovely couple!

Kayli and William's Classic Southern Charm Wedding at Venue 1902 (Preservation hall)

Kayli and William's Classic Southern Charm Wedding at Venue 1902 (Preservation hall)

I'm so excited to share images from Kayli and William's beautiful Wedding which I had the honor of photographing 4 weeks ago.

I had never shot a wedding at their fairly new wedding venue, Venue 1902, before but had heard some great things about the space from other industry vendors.

Kayli and William's had a traditional classic wedding with a color scheme of black, white and Gold detailing. They also added a touch of Red and Pink roses amidst their white floral arrangements which were put together by the team at Country club flowers. 

Venue 1902 is a Southern Style venue with historic and rustic detailing- being the oldest school on Sandford, there is no lack of historic feels at the venue, adding to its charm.

Kayli and William are so fun to be around, kind hearted and down to earth. From our fun engagement session in their neighborhood to their wedding day and beyond, Its been my pleasure watching their love firsthand and seeing what a beautiful pair they make. I would like to thank the amazing vendors who worked so hard at making their wedding day so perfect.

Here is their sneak peek!

Robert and Julaine's Engagement Session at Cypress Grove Estate Park

Summer is almost here! This means that we are now entering the wedding photography season. I'm so fortunate to live in Orlando where there are so many amazing parks and lakes. There is an abundance of beautiful photo shoot locations here. After all, Florida is called the sunshine state and Orlando is called the city of Beautiful!

I love to incorporate sunsets in my photo shoots whenever possible. Golden hour lighting (1 hour after sunrise and one hour before sunset) has that ethereal warm glow that looks gorgeous in photographs. I try to schedule all of my photo shoots in the mornings or early evenings. That's exactly what we did for Robert and Julaine's Engagement Session at Cypress Grove Estate Park. We caught the gorgeous golden hour light!

Robert and Julaine came to Orlando for their vacation. They are both currently living in Jamaica but love to spend as much time as possible in Florida. Having family living throughout Florida gives them a great excuse to visit often. Robert had set up a surprise proposal for Julaine which he had arranged with Julaine's family for months. I had the honor of photographing their engagement session just a couple of days after Robert proposed to Julaine. They are truly best friends who love to spend time in the outdoors and traveling. They wanted a natural setting for their engagement photos and had seen some images online that I had taken at Cypress Grove Estate Park. They fell in love with the idea of doing their engagement session there as well. Here is a quick sneak peek of their beautiful images
