Before I am a photographer, I am a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a friend. Maybe that's why I cry during every father daughter dance. I laugh at every toast. I well up when an Officiant pronounces a couple husband and wife. I buzz with joy chasing children around the playground. I feel awe when a newborn's tiny hand clutches my pinky finger. I draw from the emotions I have experienced through my own life's most precious moments to know when and how to capture those of others, and I usually can't help feeling overwhelmed myself! The emotional rush I feel when I'm behind the camera is what makes me love what I do. The joy I bring others through photography is what makes me do what I love.

Bhavna & Corey :: Married!

I spent Labor Day weekend in California with Bhavna and Corey celebrating their marriage. It was a weekend of joyful celebration and fun.

I will be posting over the next week or so about all of the fun and festivities, including the Mehendi party, the Grah Shantek, and Garba & Raas. But this post is dedicated to the wedding day.

I was fortunate to be joined for the weekend by Karen Mikols of Heartland Photography. She captured this great shot of Corey prepping before the ceremony.

The wedding ceremony was held at the amazing and beautiful Mountain Winery in Saratoga, California. Set up on the top of a mountain and overlooking the Silicon Valley, it was truly a photographer's dream come true!

The ceremony was followed by a reception at the Crown Plaza Cabana Hotel.

Check out all the highlights from Bhavna & Corey's wedding day in the slideshow!
