This past Friday marked a day I’ll never forget — I’m so grateful to Gen and Sagar for the opportunity to capture and document their joyous union. I feel honored and blessed to have witnessed and been included in the joining of their families and cultures.
Gen and Sagar are the type of couple that are instantaneously likable, and their enthusiasm is contagious. I knew their wedding was going to be remarkable from the moment we met back in April and they briefed me on all the plans – which included Hindu and Western ceremonies. The South Coast Winery and Resort proved to be a gorgeous venue. The views were spectacular – the grounds of the resort offered a plethora of photographic backdrops – and the warm sunset cast an awesome light on the vineyards. It was also great to have my friend Shyla on-hand as a second shooter. We fell into a great rhythm – taking-up complimentary shooting positions and capturing a wide array of decisive moments throughout the day.
I’ve just begun to edit the images, but here are a few that stood out as early favorites. Congratulations Gen and Sagar!
