Check out some of the pictures from Somil and Ripal’s wedding at the slideshow below. Please let me know how you liked it in the comments!
This has been a long time coming. After over a year since their engagement shoot, I have the opportunity to post Somil and Ripal’s wedding pictures. Set at the Merion in Cinnaminson NJ, this was a two day long collection of festival – Just like most Indian weddings. Lots of colors, lots of guests and lots of fun!
I apologize for the large number of pictures on this. Trust me, I tried to narrow it down as much as I could!
Pre-Wedding included Santek – Getting blessings from ancestors, Haldi – beautification and cleansing of the bride and the groom and garba – a traditional western Indian dance
I love to watch the first time the bride and groom see each other on their wedding day…
With Indian weddings, the party begins even before the wedding starts! The groom comes to the venue with his family and friends dancing on the street.
It’s finally happened! I’ve known Diti and Arpit for the past 6 years and they are some of my best friends here in the states. I’ve watched their friendship grow over the years. They are made for each other and I couldnt be happier that they are now engaged!
For the photoshoot, we wanted to get a backdrop of where their relationship flourished so we started at the Rutgers campus and moved on to Longwood Gardens in PA.
They are set be married in India in January. Please join me in wishing this wonderful couple happy life together.
Also included in these series are some my first successful attempts at the Brenizer’s method (Bokeh Panaroma). Can you spot which ones?
Rarely do I get a chance to post engagement pictures on the day that a couple is getting married but today is that day! A BIG congratulations to Poonam and Mithil on their wedding today!
Poonam is old friend who has done a seemingly impossible task of planning an entire wedding in less than 6 months. For her engagement pictures, we chose NJ Skylands Manor in Ringwood NJ as the location. The entire place is absolutely beautiful but unfortunately due an ongoing wedding, we could not use the castle for the pictures. Never-the-less, Poonam and Mithil’s love and not mention Poonam’s grace made the location look even more beautiful!

Charmi and I go back a long way. We went to college together at Rutgers and have participated in a couple of events in college. We’ve tried to do a portrait shoot for a long time when we were in college but just couldn’t schedule it and we lost touch after graduation. In the mean time, she met an amazing guy in India – Shiven and fell in love with him. They got married a few months ago in India.
Charmi contacted me for an ‘After the wedding’ shoot which Shiven was giving her as a birthday gift. Below are the pictures from it! I dont think I’ve ever had so many B&W pictures in one shoot but for some reason, I kinda prefer them without color this time. What do you guys think?
