Neeruka & Balraj | A Sikh Wedding In The D.C. Metro Area

I will admit it. Even though I have been specializing in Indian Weddings for a couple years, I have not done as many Sikh Weddings as I would like. Neeruka and Balraj's (Neeru + Bobby) wedding couldn't have come at a more perfect time! I was getting the itch for something a little different and was trying to break free out of a comfort zone. It was a day for all around gear shifting. During her prep I was experimenting with a off camera light for a bit of a more dramatic look. Boom! Nailed it!

During the portraits at the lovely Meadowlark Botanical Gardens I used off camera flash to combat the harsh noon sun and her pesky shadows. I know what you're thinking right now, "Zach, why are you telling me this??" Well, besides the fact I like to ramble and geek out on photo tech stuff, I want you to know I am not a finished product, I am continuing to strive to be the best photographer I can be. I don't want to stop growing. I want to  keep learning, and know no matter the situation I walk into, I will be able to produce high quality imagery that will wow you, not just the first time you get the photos, but every time you get to look back on your special day.
