Family portrait session in Kissimmee

Family portrait session in Kissimmee

You attract what you are- maybe that’s why around 70 percent of my clients are from up north or the New York / New Jersey area. I lived in New york for 12 years and moved down to Florida because I got tired of my very corporate job (think suit every day), and because of the increasingly cold and long winters! It amazes me how many New Yorkers are coming down to Florida to take advantage of the good weather here (well..I’m not THAT surprised actually). I was thrilled when Jonathan, from New York City and his family, booked me to photograph their Family portrait session in Kissimmee.

Jonathan and his siblings rented a vacation home in Kissimmee to celebrate their mothers birthday. They took an early morning break with me to capture some memories for their family to cherish forever. The rest of the days were spent bonding and going to all of the Disney Parks!  I was blessed to be a part of it! Here are a few captures.

Vraja-Gopal and Gopi Kumari’s Indian Wedding Photography at ISKCON Temple
Indian Wedding Photography at ISKCON Temple
Vraja and Gopi celebrated their Vedic Wedding with a traditional Fire Yagna (Fire sacrifice) at the Beautiful ISKCON Alachua temple this weekend and we were there to capture the fun by photographing their wedding!
Vraja was a childhood friend of my husbands, so it was extra special to be able to photography his and Gopi’s wedding!
Vraja and Gopi had two weddings- They had a traditional western wedding (white gown and suit) last year and their formal religious wedding at the temple joined by close friends and family. The mandap was decorated beautifully with red and orange roses wich complimented their bright outfits and was a nice contrast to the abundant greenery. The temple is Situated on a tranquil, rural 127-acre property in Alachua and the mandap was placed in a rustic, outdoorsy area of the property surrounded by mature trees. Ragunath officiated the Yagna beautifully as he always does! It was nice to connect with some old friends and to make new ones. Favorite moment: Special appearance by Their spiritual Master HH Radhanath Swami!
Here is their sneak peek.

Chaitanya and Poonam’s Indian Wedding Photography in Atlanta ISKCON

Untitled_0429

I had the honor of photographing Chaitanya and Poonam’s Indian (Vedic) wedding Photography last month in Atlanta ISKCON Temple. Photographing Vedic weddings are my favorite thing to do! They are always saturated with devotion, faith, family and friendship. Indian weddings are a feast for the eyes and soul (and stomach :). The beautiful couple tied the knot (literally) at the ISKCON Temple of Atlanta. They had a mandalp built just outside the temple guest house and was surrounded by mature trees and decorated with colorful Yellow, Pink, Fuchsia and Orange flowers along with religious paraphernalia. They brought their family deities along for the wedding all the way from NJ. Their home deities had a major role in the wedding functions which made the wedding even more special.
The reception took place in a large clear tent and decorated with a vintage twist.
We sneaked off to downtown Atlanta for some elegant formals, which was totally worth it!
Funny moment: The park we initially decided to take formals in was apparently booked for a 420 festival! we decided to walk around and found some even better spots to capture pictures.
I also had the honor of having Christopher from Chris Helm Photography as my second shooter.
I’m beyond excited to share this sneak peek!

Vintage Maitland Art Center Wedding and Lake Side Reception Hall Wedding
I’m super lucky to get to work with the sweetest and down to earth couples.
Nicole and Saheed were definitely one of them. I had a blast capturing their intimate wedding at Maitland Art Center earlier this year followed by a reception at the Lake Side Reception Hall. The venue was blooming with pink and fuchsia flowers which made the artsy venue even more beautiful. Their wedding was a purple themed classic wedding with a touch of vintage. I loved Nicoles Gown which was beautifully form fitting and hugged her curves in all the right places.

The Wedding day

The couple got ready at the grand bohemian Hotel in downtown Orlando. We did a first look on the pool deck of the hotel before heading to the wedding venue. Saheed could not stop laughing and looking at his gorgeous bride the entire time. We then headed to maitland art center where their ceremony was innitiated by a family friend. The Reception took place lakeside at the Lake Side Reception hall which is located close to downtown Orlando. They ended the night with a Lantern Release Ceremony!
I don’t think there could have been a more perfect day! Congratulations to the beautiful couple on their life-long journey together.
