Ever so often a thought pops into my head when photographing a wedding. How did I get here? If I asked myself back in high school, "where do you see your self in ten years?" It wasn't shooting an Indian Wedding in Cancun, I can guarantee that much. I didn't dive head first into photography until college, but that's another story for a different time.
To say I was looking forward to Priyanka (everyone calls her Pinky) and Raj's wedding would be an understatement. It's not every day you get paid to go to Cancun. Prior to the wedding Pinky and Raj met up with me in NYC for an engagement session (photos I'll share at a later date). They told me there wasn't going to be time for photos of just the two of them at the wedding, so the engagement photos are that much more important then usual. Boy, they weren't kidding! Their schedule allowed zero time to photograph the two of them on the beach, but it's all good. I love taking awesome bride and groom portraits, but to me, its the non-scripted events such as the ceremony, baraat, first dance, etc. that I enjoy capturing the most. These moments are reason I do what I do.
