A fusion Punjabi and Filipino Wedding we shot last year of Jagdeesh & David at the El Sobrante Gurdwara! They both are such fun loving couple along with their families that made us feel so welcomed. Their reception took place at the beautiful Crow Canyon Country Club in Danville, CA. The highlight of the reception for us was the money dance which is a popular dace in the Filipino culture during weddings. Male guests pay to dance with the bride, and the female guests pay to dance with the groom. It was so much fun to watch.
Here are some shots from their 3 days of wedding events. Hope you guys enjoy these pictures as much as we enjoyed capturing them for the beautiful couple!
Thanks to my brother Sahil for shooting this wedding with me. We had an absolute fantastic time!
We are very excited to share Rabia & Zeshan’s Pakistani / Afghani wedding we had the pleasure of capturing in Newark, California. There are so many beautiful moments we want to share so we divided the pictures into 3 separate posts, one for each day of their events. The first post is of their Mehndi event, followed by their wedding (Nikah) and finally their reception (Valima). Rabia was gracious enough to share her and Zeshan’s journey from the time they met till their wedding day and we are honored to be able to share that with you. Their love story is so beautiful and I am sure you will agree with me. Here is their love story in her own words:
Zeshan and I met in an interesting way! Our dads were and are really good friends, and so we had got invited to his daughter’s wedding (Zeshan’s sister). My family ended up going and I happened to be really good friends with Zeshan’s cousins, yet I never knew of Zeshan at the time. As cliché and corny as it might sound, it was honestly a feeling of love at first sight for the both of us. I thought Zeshan was so handsome, seeing him in his Pakistani clothes (which I would typically hate) and I had asked his cousin (also my friend) about him. That same night, he had asked one of his cousins about me also, since we both didn’t know who the other one was but were attracted to each other. The night went on, and we would both awkwardly glimpse at each other throughout the night…I would think about Zeshan constantly after that day, it was odd since that has never happened to me before. To my surprise, a week or so later we had found a way to get in contact and from then on began to talk and eventually exchanged phone numbers. Over time, our relationship became so close I thought of Zeshan as my best friend. We were inseparable for nearly 8 months before we both confessed our feelings for one another. We fell in love and decided to talk to our parents. We had eventually gotten engaged and now… we’re married! It’s crazy how the most random situations bring two strangers together and cause them to be madly in love with each other. I love our story, and I feel so blessed to have met the man of my dreams.
Swetha & Anuj are getting married in 2 weeks in Phoenix, Arizona! Both of them live near San Francisco California and wanted me to capture the love for them in the beautiful city of San Francisco. They decided on Palace of Fine Arts. This place has such beautiful architecture and an amazing place for an engagement shoot. Sonia and I are looking forward to capturing their wedding coming up soon.
Hope you enjoy the slideshow along with their E-Shoot pictures!
