A few weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Ann & Neil’s stunning Cleveland, OH Indian wedding with the brilliant, hilarious, and wonderful Aaron Courter.
I had been wanting to photograph an Indian wedding for ages.
No, wanting isn’t strong enough of a word. Desiring? Too sexy… Craving? too weird… YEARNING? A bit dramatic…but somehow it feels right.
I had been yearning to photograph an Indian wedding for ages. (It’ll have to do…) I can’t remember how it started. But I blame my dear friend Priti for the majority of it. I had been drooling over her various family members’ wedding images from the first time I saw a shot of a groom showing up at the wedding ceremony on a white horse. A WHITE HORSE! This was drama, this was romance, this was OPULENCE (said in this guy’s accent…) This was a traditional Gujarati ceremony and I loved every moment of it.
Ann & Neil’s beautiful wedding lived up to my expectations in every way-and then some. These two are so lovely, so lov-ing, and their family and friends created a truly celebratory mood that went on into the wee hours… I honestly didn’t want to leave-there was too much joy to photograph! It is truly a testament to Ann & Neil’s awesomeness (is that a word?) that I arrived at their wedding day a stranger and left a friend. I think they must make everyone feel that way
As you can see I have posted an un-precendented amount of images. I couldn’t stop myself. I literally had like 200 favorites and cut it down to this selection of moments to tell the story of Ann & Neil’s big day:
Neil & Ann, (and Aaron) photographing your wedding was a dream come true for me-I cannot thank you enough for inviting me to participate in this unforgettable day. Wishing you a lifetime of love and laughter!
