Uma and Nandini’s Indian Wedding in Detroit
I boarded a plane to photograph Uma and Nandini’s Indian Wedding in Detroit. A flight attendant announced over the speakers that the flight was going to be turbulent one as soon as I was seated! It was a turbulent flight the entire way to Detroit. I thanked God that we landed safely and swore that I won’t be flying again anytime soon (although i ended up booking another flight just days later). The turbulent flight quickly faded into a memory as the excitement of photographing a friends wedding kicked in. Uma is a fearless preacher and sincere friend who is liked by so many. I met Uma in Orlando a few years ago during a home study program. I was attracted by her friendly demeanor and her desire to serve others.
Friends and family from all over the world flew in to be a part of Uma and Nandini’s Wedding! From England to Africa to India, you name the country and someone probably flew in from there. The entire wedding was coordinated by her friends and Family! Uma showed some serious trust in the process as she sat back watching her magical day unfold. Their wedding was beautiful and entertaining.
The wedding took place in the Ann Arbor Marriott at Eagle Crest. The ceremony site took place outside in the back of the hotel and was decorated by tall pine trees, lush greenery and the hotels golf Course. The endless grassy hills worked perfect for their formal pictures. Their wedding color scheme was Pink, Red and Gold. The Mandap was decorated by matching roses and gorgeous fabric draping. We want to wish Nandini and Uma an amazing journey together as husband and wife

Robert and Julaine’s Engagement Session at Cypress Grove Estate Park
Summer is almost here! This means that we are now entering the wedding photography season. I’m so fortunate to live in Orlando where there are so many amazing parks and lakes. There is an abundance of beautiful photo shoot locations here. After all, Florida is called the sunshine state and Orlando is called the city of Beautiful!
I love to incorporate sunsets in my photo shoots whenever possible. Golden hour lighting (1 hour after sunrise and one hour before sunset) has that ethereal warm glow that looks gorgeous in photographs. I try to schedule all of my photo shoots in the mornings or early evenings. That’s exactly what we did for Robert and Julaine’s Engagement Session at Cypress Grove Estate Park. We caught the gorgeous golden hour light!
Robert and Julaine came to Orlando for their vacation. They are both currently living in Jamaica but love to spend as much time as possible in Florida. Having family living throughout Florida gives them a great excuse to visit often. Robert had set up a surprise proposal for Julaine which he had arranged with Julaine’s family for months. I had the honor of photographing their engagement session just a couple of days after Robert proposed to Julaine. They are truly best friends who love to spend time in the outdoors and traveling. They wanted a natural setting for their engagement photos and had seen some images online that I had taken at Cypress Grove Estate Park. They fell in love with the idea of doing their engagement session there as well. Here is a quick sneak peek of their beautiful images
