Umang + Joe | Tulsa, Oklahoma Hindu Wedding

How in the world can I fit 4 amazing days of beautiful festivities in one blog post?! Well, I had a hard time, so I chose 63 fantastic images (from over 4000+) that will give you a little story of this Hindu wedding. I’m absolutely in my element when I shoot an Indian wedding. The color, the details, the culture, and the family hospitality. I love every minute of it! And now my goal is to shoot at least one a year!:)For this stunning fête, we traveled to Tulsa, OK (super cute hometown of the bride!) to celebrate Umang + Joe’s Indian fusion wedding weekend.

We captured all the customary moments starting Thursday with the Mendhi and Lady Sangeet + Chunni Chadanna Ceremony. Friday’s Santh and Mhaya + Chudha Ceremony for the groom’s side and ending the day with the rehearsal dinner. Saturday was the first BIG Hindu day (with Sunday being a Christian ceremony) starting at 6:30AM. Yes, 6:30AM.:)I’m totally not a morning person, but this is one thing I’m happy to get out of bed for!;) The sun wasn’t even in the sky when we began with details and the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready. Once it rose, the light hit our room at just the perfect time –  while Umang was having her special touches added – including jewelry (the decision of which piece was held until this moment) her veil and bracelets (two really significant pieces). It’s so incredible to watch all this happening and to be behind the lens. I just have to squeeze myself into the right spot since there are so many involved in this process.;)Seriously, how much do you love that warm golden light during those moments? And the bride is pretty stunning, yeah?!

This day was all made possible by a pretty cool group of girls – KI Weddings based out of Dallas. Their design, direction, help and coordination for each day was immensely appreciated. Ryan and I loved working with this talented bunch! We also worked with a pretty stellar pair from Hoo Films, the videographers based out of San Diego. (Watch the video in the link!!) It’s nice that when you have a limited amount of space and time to work, that we can really work as a team and allow each other to capture the best moments without being in the way.

Umang + Joe. Oh man. These two. They constantly told us thank you, including their sweet families, throughout the entire weekend, and sentiments like this warm my heart. I can’t thank them enough for believing in us. It was an honor and a pleasure to work with them. Our first foray into the Indian experience was a few years ago with another amazing couple, Mayur + Sonya. We’ve had other potential couples reach out only to ask if we have much experience shooting Indian weddings. Umang + Joe didn’t have to ask, they just believed in us. Details included a 72 ft stage with so many floral arrangements and lit candles that I lost count. The ceremony room was then swapped to quickly prepare for the reception that evening. A floating cake layered with real roses? Need I say more? Sit back and see their vision come to life!

Enjoy the photos! Aaaaaand we are still looking for another Indian wedding to capture in 2015 – who’s in?!:)

I was a guest at Umang & Joe’s wedding, these pictures are amazing! I remember all the feelings I had a guest. I can only imagine the feelings they will have for many years to come as they relive the event through these images.

Marie + Rick | St. Louis Engagement Photography

Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? This year was my parent’s turn for a visit, so we packed up and headed to KC. I’ve been gluten-free for almost a year now, so I was feeling a little panicked that I was not gonna be able to have all my favorite fixins’. But my sweet Mama prepared her family recipes with GF substitutes and I bought anything I found labeled “pumpkin” from Whole Foods.:)Everything was perfect – we all have so much to be thankful for this year.

Marie + Rick sure did choose a windy fall day for their engagement. However, I LOVE the wind! It may be somewhat annoying for hair blowing around and your lip gloss getting stuck in it,;)but I always just say to try and embrace whatever happens in the moment. These two have been dating since high school and Rick chose the perfect sunset moment on the beach in Naples, FL for the proposal. Just the mention of the word beach and I wish I was back in Bora Bora. I promise to share our vacation photos soon, in the meantime, stay warm and check out these two lovelies!

Enjoy the photos!

Meghan + Grant | St. Louis Wedding Photography

I know I’m not supposed to pick favorites, but with Meghan + Grant, it’s pretty obvious they are one of mine. This girl has sent me the sweetest notes + texts during our journey together, and they even brought me something special back from their honeymoon in Italy! The end of the year is always a bit hectic for me, so when a couple or client understands this and is super patient, it makes me so happy! They are one of them. (Thank you!) But they don’t have to wait any longer, today is going to be a very exciting day!

It’s pretty obvious to see that these two really have known each other since elementary school, and just three years ago they started dating. On a random Thursday, as Meghan described (and during our consult Grant threw out the actual date!);) he proposed. She arrived home one night from getting her hair cut, hands full, and before she could even put anything down, he was on one knee. I would have loved to have seen this go down, as Meghan thought it was all a joke. Life really is better with you. (wink. wink.)

Enjoy!

Rachel + Chris | St. Louis Engagement Photography

I’ve got the Monday blues. I just didn’t want the weekend to end! I’m sure you feel the same. Despite the super cold weather, it’s so nice in my off season to have some free weekends to spend with friends + family. So this past weekend I was in Kansas City hosting a baby shower for one of my BFFs, but now I’m back at my desk editing Rachel + Chris’s engagement images. I really perked up while working on these because they are so darn sweet together … and sexy! We had the perfect Fall day with amazing light and of course, I’m all about dressing up for an engagement, so I fell madly in love with Rachel’s Trina Turk dress and Jimmy Choo lacy pumps, perfect for dancing at sunset. (I think I’m putting those on my Christmas list!)

Enjoy!
