Yash & Anju’s Sikh Indian wedding at the San Jose Gurdwara Sahib and Royal Palace with beautiful, emotional, and seeped in traditional Punjabi Indian culture. The wedding day was day 5 of a week of wonderful festivities!
The one unique thing about photographing Indian weddings, I’ve found, is that because they are almost a week long I really get to know my couple and their families very well. I am going thru the two Indian wedding photos I photographed this month, and I find myself actually missing them and their wonderful families! I enjoyed my time with them, documenting their lives, their joy, their personalities, and telling these stories for them. I was treated with respect, and love, was well fed and cared for, as if I was a member of their family. Not just by the couple, but their siblings, their parents and grandparents, and extended family. I love what I do! I don’t just take photographs. I get to share peoples lives with them. These families gave me so much more than a smile and a hand shake. They gave me their love and trust, and that brings me so much joy!
You can see in these photographs the love and joy that these two beautiful families share. I was thrilled and honored to be a part of documenting this part of this very special couples lives. Yash and Anju, I wish you both the very best, and hope you enjoy these memories we captured for you!
