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.

Jessica and Rishi :: Married!

Jessica and Rishi were married in a gorgeous Hindu ceremony this past Saturday. The wedding and reception were at the gorgeous Woodend Sanctuary.

Jess looked absolutely stunning.




She wore a custom designed Indian inspired gown by Prita Malhorta of Illusion Designs. The beading was incredible.

Rishi made a grand entrance on horseback.






I love how Jess is looking at her dad making her entrance.









The amazing and talented Kimberly Sanderson of Sanderson Images joined me for the day to photograph Jess & Rishi's big day. I love this image she caught.



After the ceremony, we headed to a small field adjacent to the grove where the ceremony took place for some photos of Jess & Rishi. At first we saw one deer, then 2, then I think we counted at least 6. The weren't the least bit concerned with us and let us go on our way.



Lucky for us, because I just love how these images came out. The field was just amazing.



The next two image are by Kimberly. I just adore the photo of Jess & Rishi leaving the field and the one from their first dance is inspired. I was so lucky to have Kimberly come down from Pennsylvania to photograph this wedding with me. I'm a huge fan of both Kimberly and her husband John and was thrilled that she was available to join me! Thank you so much, Kimberly! I had a blast with you!





And a final image from their first dance.



I had so much fun at Jess & Rishi's wedding. Thank you so much for including me in your special day!
