Kavita and Sudeep celebrated the first part of their two-part coast-to-coast Indian wedding in South Beach, Miami, Florida.  This was a destination wedding for everyone involved and the weekend was designed for for fun-in-the-sun!

Friday evening they held a Mehndi Party and Saturday morning the held a Haldi Ceremony, all at a beautiful South Beach estate called the Orchid House.  The ceremony and reception were held Saturday afternoon and evening.  We started with a few photos at the Orchid House and then moved over to the ceremony venue at a high-rise on the beach known as the Shore Club.  Everything took place at the Penthouse of the Shore Club and it was almost overwhelming to take in.  The evening's events took place out on the patios of the penthouse and the views were out of this world spectacular.  In every direction was either beach and ocean views or stunning city views of Miami's incredible skyline.  To top it off the entire penthouse balcony was lit up in vivid shades of every color of the rainbow!  Oh, and did we mention the cake ... WOW, what an awesome cake!!

Kavita and Sudeep decided against a traditional Indian ceremony, opting instead to make it their own and incorporate many customs from various cultures throughout the world, including those of Indian culture.  It was truly a stunning event and one I'm sure their guests won't soon forget.

They concluded their Miami wedding event with a Sunday brunch at the Surfcomber.  Afetr brunch everyone walked over to the beach for a day of final day of relaxation and fun on one of the world's most famous beaches.  South Beach was a perfect destination for this wonderful couple.  Two weeks later they held a grand reception in Huntington Beach, California which you can see HERE!

We have to mention Jackie Bressler and Taylor Thomas of Jackie Bressler Events, for doing an outstanding job coordinating this entire event and pulling all the details together for Kavita and Sudeep!  They did a beautiful job!!

Kavita and Sudeep decided to have a coast-to-coast event to celebrate their marriage.  It started at the beginning of April in posh South Beach, Miami.  The couple wanted a location with a tropical feel that would provide their guests with a weekend full of fun and relaxation that wasn't too far off the beaten path.  South Beach was the perfect solution!

The three-day event in Miami began at a private estate nestled deep in the heart of South Beach's main strip, called the Orchid House.  Though it is in the thick of the action, you would never know it once inside the property grounds.  It was surprising how quite and tranquil the setting was ... and beautiful.  Friday evening was reserved for the Mehndi Party which featured henna artists, dinner, and several wonderful dance programs.  Kavita is a very accomplished dancer and gave an outstanding performance to wrap up the night's festivities.  The following Saturday morning, the couple took part in a festive Haldi Ceremony where a mixture containing turmeric is playfully applied to the skin by various family members for beautification purposes.  Gifts are also exchanged between family members.  The wedding ceremony and brunch the following Sunday is covered in our next posting.

Part two of Kavita and Sudeep's coast-to-coast Indian wedding was held in California and it was spectacular!!  The first part, the wedding, was held in South Beach, Miami.  The second half included a two-night celebration.  On the first night they held a welcome dinner and mehndi party at Kavita's parent's home.  The second night was the reception and it took place at the gorgeous Hyatt Huntington Beach.  Kavita and Sudeep looked amazing, the ballroom decor was stunning, the weather was perfect and the entertainment for the evening was second-to-none!  Kavita loves to dance and is extremely accomplished, so it would stand to reason the theme for the evening was dance.  There were tango and salsa performances and the highlight of the evening were the electric performances by world-renowned dance group, Karmagraphy.  Kavita was invited to be a guest dancer with the group and she was simply flawless!!  Smita Mohindra of Ethnic Essence did a stellar job coordinating the reception!

Kavita and Sudeep, thank you for taking us along on your coast-to-coast wedding journey.  You both made us feel so welcomed as did your families and friends!  We had such a great time getting to know you all and wish you all the happiness in your future together!!

We just love this couple!  Mona and Allen held their Indian Fusion Wedding on March 29th, 2014 and the day couldn't have been more beautiful.  They started the day with the first of two ceremonies with a lovely Catholic ceremony at St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church.  After a lunch held for their guests, the couple headed over to the Doubletree Resort Paradise Valley for their second ceremony, a colorful Hindu ceremony.  After the cocktail hour the final phase of the day concluded with a fun-filled reception.  A long day for sure, but one full of joy, fun, love and most important, the blending of two families and cultures.  We just love wedding like this!

We have to thank Jo Ann Grant of Apropos Creations for doing such an amazing job planning all the details and pulling them together to provide Mona and Allen with a day they will never forget!!

Mona and Allen, thank you both so much for having us as your wedding photographers!  We loved every minute of it and hope you enjoy the sneak peak :-)!

Tina, these photos are stunning. You told their story so brilliantly. Lovely work.

1-2-14 Destination Wedding Photographers 2013BestOf1000.jpg

Another year has come and gone ... it goes by so quickly!  Year eight of our business brought with it more travel and some wonderful advances and changes!  We started out the year with a destination wedding in San Francisco, California and ended it with a destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico.  We also enjoyed photographing a traditional Navajo wedding on the Navajo Nation, which is always a deep privilege!  We scaled back a little this year and photographed 32 weddings.  The extra time was spent working on a new business called Nature's Album by Sierra Blanco.  This business is dedicated to the nature end of our work, offering fine art landscape and wildlife prints and nature photography workshops.  It is an exciting new venture for Kevin and I that we are thrilled to finally launch!  You can view our nature photography on our new website.

The biggest change of all though centers around our wedding photography business.  Kevin and I (Tina) have always been the primary photographers.  Angie joined us four years ago and starting taking her own weddings through us a couple of years ago, but only sporadically.  This year Meg joined us and she has been working very hard to learn the ropes and our unique style of journalistic wedding photography.  With the launch of 2014, Sierra Blanco Photography is now officially a boutique wedding photography studio of four!  We now have four photographers to choose from, myself and Kevin, and Angie and Meg.  This will allow us to offer our clients more options, which we love!  Angie and Meg are both amazing photographers and blend seamlessly into our "family" and we are so excited to have them and proud to have them represent our name!

We want to thank all our 2013 couples for having us as their wedding photographers and trusting us with one of the most important days of their lives!  It is always an honor to be a part of such a meaningful event and we never want to take that for granted.  Eight years in, we still LOVE what we do and we are looking forward to our ninth year of business and a rewarding and fun 2014!  These are our pics for the Best of 2013 ... always a difficult task to choose from so many wonderful moments.  They are comprised of images taken by Tina, Kevin, Angie and Meg.  Enjoy!

so many stunning photos

1-2-14 Destination Wedding Photographers 2013BestOf2000.jpg

Another year has come and gone ... it goes by so quickly!  Year eight of our business brought with it more travel and some wonderful advances and changes!  We started out the year with a destination wedding in San Francisco, California and ended it with a destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico.  We also enjoyed photographing a traditional Navajo wedding on the Navajo Nation, which is always a deep privilege!  We scaled back a little this year and photographed 32 weddings.  The extra time was spent working on a new business called Nature's Album by Sierra Blanco.  This business is dedicated to the nature end of our work, offering fine art landscape and wildlife prints and nature photography workshops.  It is an exciting new venture for Kevin and I that we are thrilled to finally launch!  You can view our nature photography on our new website.

The biggest change of all though centers around our wedding photography business.  Kevin and I (Tina) have always been the primary photographers.  Angie joined us four years ago and starting taking her own weddings through us a couple of years ago, but only sporadically.  This year Meg joined us and she has been working very hard to learn the ropes and our unique style of journalistic wedding photography.  With the launch of 2014, Sierra Blanco Photography is now officially a boutique wedding photography studio of four!  We now have four photographers to choose from, myself and Kevin, and Angie and Meg.  This will allow us to offer our clients more options, which we love!  Angie and Meg are both amazing photographers and blend seamlessly into our "family" and we are so excited to have them and proud to have them represent our name!

We want to thank all our 2013 couples for having us as their wedding photographers and trusting us with one of the most important days of their lives!  It is always an honor to be a part of such a meaningful event and we never want to take that for granted.  Eight years in, we still LOVE what we do and we are looking forward to our ninth year of business and a rewarding and fun 2014!  These are our pics for the Best of 2013 ... always a difficult task to choose from so many wonderful moments.  They are comprised of images taken by Tina, Kevin, Angie and Meg.  Enjoy!

Radhika and Phat had a lovely, low-key event - by Indian wedding standards anyways:-).  Though the ceremony honored the bride's South Indian heritage, Phat is Vietnamese and thus the wedding as a whole was a joining together of two cultures, which is always beautiful to watch!

7-31-13 Sedona Engagement Photographers MAEShoot00.jpg

We had such a great time last week at Mona and Allen's engagement shoot!  I swear, monsoon season in Arizona is spectacular and Sedona is the perfect backdrop for all the drama to unfold.  We first went to Red Rock Crossing where we briefly played in the rain and then headed up Schnebly Hill to Merry-Go-Round Rock to witness one of the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen.  Just after the sun had set, a large rain storm rolled into view in the distance and the afterglow bathed the rain sheets in deep shades of magenta, which by the way, couldn't have paired any better set against Mona's stunning purple dress.  We love this couple and can't wait to photograph their Indian/Catholic fusion wedding next March!

Sabrina and Raj were married March 16, 2013 at beautiful Villa Siena in Gilbert, Arizona!  This was an Indian fusion wedding lasting three days.  On the final day two ceremonies took place, the first, Indian to honor Raj's heritage and the second, Christian to honor Sabrina's heritage.  We just love watching two families with vastly different backgrounds coming together to blend as one ... very moving.  Thank you both so much for having us as your wedding photographers.  It was an honor to be a part of this wonderful blending of culture and tradition!

We wanted to take the time to congratulate all of our amazing couples who were married in 2012 and thank them for entrusting their precious memories to us and having us as their wedding photographers!  From the bottom of our hearts, you were all wonderful and it was a joy working with each and every one of you!

We had the fortune to photograph 43 beautiful weddings this past year!  They took us all over Arizona and beyond.  2012 took us to Kauai, Hawaii; Boulder, Colorado; Florida two times - Orlando and Miami; Maryland two times - just outside of Washington D.C. and just outside of Baltimore; California three times - San Diego, Newport Beach, and San Francisco; and my home state of North Carolina for my cousin's wedding.  Needless to say, narrowing down the images was quite a task.  We finally arrived at 148 total which has been split into two parts.  The images represent the work of all photographers - Tina, Kevin and Angie.  We hope you enjoy looking through the images as much as we enjoyed creating them!

Vim and Gem held their stunning two-day Indian wedding on their picturesque property in Sedona, Arizona, in late September 2012.  This posting is day two of the event, the reception.  We just couldn't let this one go by and not show it off on our blog.  Gorgeous!!

11-4-12 Indian Wedding Photographers KBWed100.jpg

We knew as soon as we met with this wonderful couple that we wanted to photograph their wedding!  Kripa and Brian are just so easy-going and fun to talk to and we were thrilled when they let us know of their decision.  The two were married in a stunning Indian wedding at Bella Giardino in Phoenix in early November.  This was a long event (over 12 hours coverage) so we broke it up into two postings ... one just doesn't do it justice :-).  Every detail was beautiful and their reception rocked!  Thank you both for entrusting us to capture your incredible event.  We loved every minute of it!

We want to thank Jo Ann Grant of Apropos Creations for doing such an amazing job coordinating this event and being so flexible and wonderful to work with!  We also want to thank Sloan Ehnat for being our third shooter for the day!

2011Best00.jpg

So finally, here it is  - the BEST OF 2011!!  I know this is late in coming, but quite frankly it was a hell of a year!  I really am at a loss for words to describe a year like the one we had in 2011.  It was amazing, enlightening, surreal, beautiful, humbling, tiring, frustrating and maddening all rolled into one, but if I had to describe it in one word it would be ... SPECTACULAR!!

To be honest I can't imagine there being another year quite like this one.  We had 51 weddings in 2011, 3 of which were multi-day cultural events, 7 of which were destination weddings (in other words, not in the state of Arizona) with 3 of those taking place in Mexico, 1 in Europe and 1 in Africa.  All told we traveled to Moab, Utah for a rustic, wild-west wedding, Napa Valley, California for a lovely wine-country wedding, Puerto Penasco for an authentic Mexican wedding, Riviera Maya (Cancun) for a colorful Nigerian/Indian wedding, Cabo San Lucas for a spirited Eritrean wedding, Rome for a romantic wedding at the Vatican and finally Nigeria for a spectacular three-day long Nigerian wedding event!  On top of that we had weddings throughout Arizona including Tucson, Phoenix, Sedona, Flagstaff, Lake Powell and Monument Valley.

The only way I knew to narrow the selections down for this posting was to choose one photo per wedding or event day ... no easy task I assure you.  The following consists of 72 photos, taken from each wedding or each day of the wedding event and also includes an image from each trash the dress shoot and personal shoot we did relating to weddings.  For the sake of keeping the number of images under control we did not include engagement shoots and portrait shoots.

To sum things up simply - 2011 for us was what we have always dreamed of ... doing what we love and in the process having the opportunity to experience new and exotic locations and learning about new cultures and how they celebrate one of life's most joyful events!  What a privilege :-)!

Thank you to all our amazing couples from 2011 for enriching our lives in so many wonderful and varying ways!

The fifth and final day of Ami and Jeremy's incredible Indian wedding was held at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort in Phoenix.  With nearly 500 guests in attendance it was truly a grand event!  We also would like to point out how stunning all of Ami and Jeremy's outfits were for this wedding.  Ami took much time putting them all together and choosing just the right accessories to compliment each one and it really showed!

Day four of Ami and Jeremy's Indian wedding was held on 11-11-11.  This was the official day of their Hindu wedding ceremony and in order to keep true to tradition it was held at the Shreenathji Temple in Phoenix.  Silly as it may be, we were so excited that Jeremy rode in on a horse (and a very beautiful one at that) during the baraat.  Of all the South Asian weddings we have done so far this is the first time the groom has entered on horseback :-).

The second day of Ami and Jeremy's five day long Indian wedding event was the Mehndi Party.  Ami loves animals, especially turtles ... a girl after my own heart :-) ... therefore her choice of venue seemed charmingly appropriate - the Phoenix Zoo!  As this took place in November, Phoenix Zoo Lights, a months-long display of holiday lights adorning every square inch of the zoo, was ready and about to open to the public and we got first dibs at seeing it!

We all had a great time wandering the zoo before the guests arrived talking shop about every animal and animal fact we knew, and we even got a few critters in the shots :-)!  Ami was later trying to tell her friends about our shared love of animals and about the mini zoo Kevin and I keep at home :-).  She said she thought we could be good friends in every day life if given the chance ... I agree!

Ami and Jeremy's Indian wedding event took place the week of 11-11-11 and it was a stunner!!  Ami wanted to have a traditional Punjabi Wedding and pulled it off in grand style.  The entire event took place over the course of five days and was by far the longest and largest South Asian wedding we have covered!

The first day was set aside for portraits, an engagement session of sorts.  We conducted the shoot at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix and the setting along with the beautiful sunset skies we were graced with that evening provided the perfect backdrop ... oh, and the giant bug sculptures didn't hurt either :-)!

6-11-11 Destination Wedding Photographers NTWed00.jpg

We love all weddings, but among some of our favorites are destination weddings and Indian weddings.  Destination weddings for obvious reasons - we love to travel and for us, change of scenery helps keep us fresh creatively - and Indian weddings because they are so alive with color, culture and custom.  So, when I received an email back in early February from Neha explaining her upcoming multi-day Indian / Nigerian destination wedding in Riviera Maya (Cancun), Mexico, I went crazy!  I was actually visiting my family in North Carolina at the time and remember running around the house to find my mom to tell her about it!  I wanted this wedding bad!!  The icing on the cake for me was the fact that Akintunde (Tunde), Neha's finace, is from Nigeria and she said the first day would incorporate Nigerian dress and customs.  Soon after that first email we were hired and I was elated!!

My Associate Photographer, Angie accompanied me to Cancun as my second photographer (Kevin was unable to go and I was so sad he couldn't) and as soon as we stepped off the plane we knew we were in for an exciting weekend!  Neha lives in Miami, Florida, Tunde in Austin, Texas - they will be moving to Atlanta soon - and their friends and family hail from all over the US, Nigeria, and India, and they all came to meet in this stunning setting called Mexico.  This wedding did not disappoint!  Every aspect of it, from the couple and their approximately 70 guests, to the spectacular and exotic local, to the colorful and animated ceremonies, was a sight to behold!

The first day was held at the Azul Sensatori Resort and was the Nigerian Introduction and Engagement Ceremony, followed by a reception and Mehndi Party.  The other thing I really love in this world is Africa and everything African.  Though I have never been to West Africa, I have been to East Africa several times and through those journeys I was fortunate to indulge in meeting the local people and experiencing and learning of their cultures and customs.  It may sound cliche, but Africa really does get into your blood ... it did for me and I simply fell in love.  It has been a while since I was able to return and being able to participate in and witness some of the Nigerian customs of a wedding were beautiful!  For much the same reasons I love Indian weddings, I loved the Nigerian ceremony.  The colors were stunning and the sense of family and custom were strong.

The Indian wedding ceremony and trash the dress session are in the following posts.  I would like to thank Neha and Tunde for choosing me as their wedding photographer, for giving me the opportunity to experience their incredibly beautiful wedding and for their gracious nature!  It was an experience I will always hold dear :-)!

To Angie, I want to say thank you for doing such an amazing job!  So many of her photos made these postings that I didn't distinguish who took what, but her work at this wedding was stellar!  I know she would like me to ay thank you to Neha and Tunde as well ... she LOVED your wedding - and the two of you :-)!

The second day of Neha and Tunde's destination wedding in Riviera Maya (Cancun), Mexico, hosted the Hindu Indian Ceremony.  This day was the longest and I felt it best to break the day into two postings, one for the getting ready and ceremony and the other for the formals and reception.  The ceremony was held on the rooftop deck of the Azul Sensatori Resort ... at noon.  Did I mention it was HOT!  It was very, very hot ... and humid (the killer), but with wet towels in hand, and on head as was the case with some (including me), umbrellas held for shade, and plenty, plenty, plenty of water, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the colorful and beautiful ceremony that united Neha and Tunde in marriage!  It was beautiful!

I want to include another thank you to our Associate Photographer and friend, Angie Gomez, for traveling with me to this amazing event and doing such an amazing job as my second photographer ... you slammed it out of the park Angie ... great work!!!

The second day of Neha and Tunde's wedding in Riviera Maya (Cancun), Mexico was very long, so we felt it best to break the posting in two parts - one for the getting ready and ceremony and the other for formals and the reception ... mostly reception.  As with the day before, this was a great reception - one giant party full of excitement and energy!  A photographer's dream!!  It rained a little, but no one minded in the extreme heat and humidity that lingered well into the night.

Michelle and Leo were married on a very, very rainy and unseasonably cold April day this year in Phoenix, but it was beautiful none-the-less.  Their ceremony was held at the Nishkam Seva Gurdwara Sahib and consisted of both Sikh and Cherokee traditions - I just love fusion weddings!  Michelle looked absolutely stunning and her henna was out of this world!  Thank you both so much for having me as your wedding photographer and enjoy the sneak peak!

Shy and Prameet held their second day of wedding festivities in late June at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoneix and it was simply stunning!  We loved being a part of this wonderful couple's wedding.  As we said in Part 1 of this post, it was a true honor that they chose us to photograph their wedding as they own and operate the Dulhania Bazaar South Asian Bridal Expo!

 

Also, as we said in Part 1 of this posting, the Dulhania Bazaar South Asian Bridal Expo will be held this Sunday, October 31st, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix.  If you are there, please stop by our booth to see us!

Shy and Prameet were married in late June in a Muslim ceremony.  The first day of festivities was held at the Phoenix Airport Marriott and was full of stunning color and traditional entertainment in the form of one very talented belly dancer!  We were very honored to be asked by this couple to do their wedding photography!  Shy and Prameet own and operate the Dulhania Bazaar South Asian Bridal Expo.  Understandably it was a true honor to be asked by a couple who regularly has contact with many great wedding photographers and vendors to photograph and take part in their wedding!  Thank you both so much ... it was a spectacular experience!!

outstanding photography............

(11.10.10 @ 04:30 AM)

The last half of the day revolved around the Christian ceremony and wedding reception.  All in all, the day lasted 15 1/2 hours.  It was certainly tiring, but well worth every minute!  This was an amazing Indian wedding that we will not soon forget.  Prachie and Aaron are both amazing and accomplished people and it was a joy getting to know them over the course of those three days.  Equally wonderful were Prachie's parents and sister, who graciously invited us into there home and treated us like guests the entire time!  Thank you all so much and we hope you love the photographs!

 

I also want to give a special thanks to my wonderful second shooter, Melissa Dunstan, for her wonderful work, friendship and for sticking out for 12 hours of the wedding day :-) ... thank you so much Melissa!!

Aaron is a very talented musician, as are his friends that you have seen in the photos above.  He wrote a song for Prachie and played it on the piano ... it was breathtaking!

Tina, What a great day! I loved working with you and getting to know your clients better. What a great couple! Also, I found out that I LOVE Indian dance music! It was a great day and it really didn't seem like 12 hours! You're the BEST!!!

Prachie and Aaron's wedding took place on the third day of festivities at the spectacular JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix.  This venue is amazing ... and huge!  It contains several venues spread across the expansive resort grounds.  The first part of the day was dedicated to the Hindu Ceremony.  Prachie's dress was stunning and all the details and colors were mesmerizing!  Prachie's mother is from Nepal and so aside from the Indian customs there were also some Nepali customs infused into the wedding as well.  I just loved all the pagentry, beauty and meaning that is implied in every aspect of the hindu ceremony!

This is one of my favorite shots of the whole event!  You can just see the love that Prachie's father has for her and how happy, yet sad, he was to let his daughter go.

On Friday, day two of Prachie and Aaron's Indian wedding, we again spent the day at Prachie's parent's home, this time for the Haldi, or Turmeric, ceremony.  Turmeric is a yellow spice which is made into a paste that is then applied to the bride by her family and friends during the ceremony the day before the wedding to give her radiant skin.  The Haldi was very festive, with music playing and everyone having a great time!  Following the Haldi ceremony, Prachie changed into a beautifully beaded dress and prayers began, after which guests arrived for food and the Mehndi Party, where all of Prachie's female family and friends had their henna done.

In April we had the privilege of documenting Prachie and Aaron's Indian wedding!  The wedding was a three day event filled with lots of love, laughter, color and tradition that ultimately culminated in a wedding day consisting of two full weddings, one Hindu and one Christian.  It was an amazing experience and because there were so many aspects to it, we have broken it up into four postings.  This first posting is from Thursday, the first day of celebration.  We spent the day with Prachie's at her parent's home for her Mehndi (henna tattoo.)

Were finally back!!!!  I know that all our clients and friends who regularly follow our blog thought we were dead, but that's not the case ... we have just been insanely busy :-).  This is the first time we have had to let the blogging go in order to meet our deadlines, and though we wish we could have had a sneak peak up for all of our fall clients, we simply couldn't.  We are leaving no one out though ... we will be posting every single wedding and shoot we had.

 

In other studio news, we are gearing up for another great year of weddings in 2010!  We are looking forward to photographing our first Indian wedding in April, and shooting more destination weddings in such great locations as the Big Island of Hawaii, Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point), Mexico, Clearwater, Florida, and San Diego, California.  And of course, we also have many fantastic weddings on the books throughout Arizona so stay tuned ... hopefully we won't fall behind again :-).

 

So get ready, it is time for a deluge of blog postings because we still have 13 weddings, 11 shoots and a few fun postings from our travels to blog!  Without further ado let us begin the blogging!
