A huge thank you to Seattle Bride Magazine for featuring my work in back-to-back publications. I’m so honored to be listed as one of the best vendors for South Asian Weddings.
Thank you to all the couples who have given me the opportunity to be their photographer.
I’m excited for the road ahead where I can continue to put my heart into so many more weddings.
Outside of my window, the rain is pouring down and it somehow reminds me of sitting in a car while going through a car wash. The pitter-patter sound fills the room as the raindrops hit the window, growing louder with every wind gust. Thankfully, I’m inside with a warm cup of tea, and looking through photos of a beautiful Seattle Fall day on Mercer Island, where I had the opportunity to photograph Ben & Teresa’s Catholic wedding.
Teresa is from my hometown of Bellingham, and so it was fun to see some familiar faces at the wedding and reception. As I sip my tea, I’m remembering the part of the day when Ben & Teresa stepped away to take photos after the ceremony. There was a glow of excitement in the air, and it was the perfect chance for them to enjoy that feeling without any distractions.
A huge thanks to Ben and Teresa for the opportunity to photograph their beautiful Catholic wedding on Mercer Island!

Indian Wedding Photography in Seattle
While growing up, I always noticed the same style of Indian weddings photos, and I felt like they never fully captured the cultural essence or traditions the way I saw and experienced them. While they may have done a great job of making the couple look like Bollywood stars, everything felt too ‘posed’ for me. One of the greatest joys during my photography experience has been the chance to develop relationships with my couples, and to photograph them in a unique way that brings out and captures real emotion. Real emotion has power. It makes you feel.
I love the emotion and feelings at multicultural weddings. (It’s truly an honor to photograph them) These are opportunities to share Indian culture, and at the same time, welcome new traditions into our lives. After all, we learn and grow through open hearts.
Preetma & Brian (two incredible friends) celebrated their modern Indian wedding at the Renton Gurdwara. After the ceremony, we drove into the majestic Cascade Mountains to create some beautiful photos where Preetma wore her red lehenga, and Brian wore a groom’s achkan sherwani with a red turban. Their traditional Indian outfits gave these photos a special (magical) feeling, especially when the fog and misty rain rolled in…
A huge thanks to Brian and Preetma for the opportunity to photograph their beautiful Indian wedding!
Over the past few years, it’s been an honor to photograph Indian weddings in the Seattle area. I’ve met some incredible people who have opened their arms to me, and I’m so thankful for the opportunity to share what I love – photography. Indian weddings are always full of bright colors, beautiful clothing, delicious food, and so many meaningful traditions. It’s been a humbling experience to have met so many awesome couples, and their families, and I’m excited to continue creating photos to share these beautiful moments.
A huge thanks for all the support! 🙂
