4-1-12 Wedding Magazine Photography PBG00.jpg

This took way too long to post but we couldn't pass up the opportunity to post this.  We were beyond excited to be approached by Phoneix Bride & Groom Magazine to photograph a fashion feature to be published in their Winter/Spring 2012 edition!  The concept was to have two models each dressed as brides in a single dress with the focus being on how four different hair and make-up concepts could transform the look of the dress.  The shoot took place in a suite at the lovely JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa.  We loved the idea and had a great time shooting with an amazing array of talented artists, models and friends!

Thank you to Publisher, Fran Samuel, Sales and Marketing Director, Jennifer Rabito, and Regional Account Executive, Kristen Butler, for trusting in our photographic vision.  It was such an honor to have this opportunity!

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!

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.
