Balaram and Radhika’s Indian Vedic Wedding at ISKCON Alachua temple

I can’t take my eyes off of this gorgeous bride (and groom!). I had the honor and pleasure of photographing Balaram and Radhika’s wedding last month in Gainesville Florida at the Alachua ISKCON Temple. The wedding was styled and planned by the talented team at Ganjam Tribe, and they really did a fabulous job at it!

Radhika got ready at the historic Magnolia Plantation BnB while Balaram got ready at home. I really love the rich cultural and spiritual aspect of Vedic weddings and feel that they photography so beautifully. The center stage for their wedding was their stunning home deities whom got to witness and bless their union together along with family and friends.
I loved the white paper umbrellas that were provided to guests to allow them to sit comfortably in the shade during the ceremony. Indian weddings tend to go on a bit longer than most and Florida is called the sunshine state for a reason! The reception dinner was held at the temple property followed by games and continued celebrations at Balaram’s family home.

I want to congratulate the couple on such a beautiful wedding and wish them a lifetime of amazing memories together.
Here is their sneak peak.

DC Indian wedding photography for Christy and Scotts wedding

DC Indian wedding photography

It seems that 2016 is a year full of traveling, especially for weddings. I’ve never been keen on flying, in fact, I don’t like it at all, but I push myself constantly, to overcome all fears in my life. I just book flights and deal with my fears later. This goes for my personal trips and professional trips. I am truly blessed to be given the opportunity to travel so much, and I won’t let my fears of flying hold me down. I try to practice this attitude with all aspects of my life!

This April I found myself in both DC and Atlanta, photographing two Indian / Vedic weddings.

In DC, I got to be a part of Christy and Scotts special day, which took place ISKCON of Washington DC, located in Potomac. The wedding was full of love, colors, and family from all walks of life. They held a traditional fire sacrifice (yajna) inside a white tent on the temple property, with the remaining rituals performed inside the temple hall. The tent was then transformed into the reception thanks to the many helping hands of close friends. My favorite part of the day was dodging the rain to go out and feed a cow, which is the closing part of the wedding. This was an important moment for the couple, and was filled with jokes and laughing. Can you tell in the last picture?
I had such a blast being a part of this wedding, and got to see so many familiar faces, since I’m a part of the ISKCON Temple here in Orlando.
Thank you for allowing me to capture you both! here is a quick sneak peek, which is quite overdue!

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!

We got to fly up to West Virginia earlier this month to photography the wedding of Bhakti and Rohan at the ISKCON Temple/ Palace of Gold.

Rohan, from Texas and Bhakti, from New Jersey tied the knot in a sacred Vedic wedding Ceremony in the main temple hall surrounded by family and close friends.
The celebration was just amazing, with endless prashadam (blessed food) good association, and beautiful fall foliage all around. The ISKCON Temple is nestled up in the mountains, with the Golden Palace, where we photographed all of the formal pictures, overlooking the the Appalachian Hills and Valleys. The Palace of gold resembles a opulent Indian Kingdom, which was a perfect backdrop to their gorgeous regal attire.
Murals depicting ancient Indian classics are painted on the ceiling in the tradition of Renaissance masters. Walls and pillars are accented with semi-precious stones and pure gold. but most importantly, the whole community is saturated with Bhakti, or love for God. We are super excited to share this wedding with you!
