JW Marriott Desert Ridge Phoenix: Shalini + Ankur Wedding

There is a love story spanning 1000 miles and five states. Shalini and Ankur met in New York on a blind date while she was doing her family medicine residency in Macon, Georgia and he was doing his cardiology fellowship in Boston, Massachusetts. After countless hours on the phone and logging vast numbers of frequent flyer miles, they realized that they were meant for each other. Ankur proposed to Shalini on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and their wedding took place at the beautiful JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix on November 5th, 2011.

Prior to their wedding I had the opportunity to fly out to Atlanta Georgia where we had a great E-Shoot session at the beautiful Piedmont Park. You can view the pictures by clicking here.

DC Ranch Scottsdale, Arizona Wedding: Heidi + Ari

This is definitely the most unique fusion wedding we have shot so far! Few months ago a mutual friend introduced us to Heidi and Ari. At our first consultation we were excited to know that the ceremony will be a Hindu ceremony performed by a Indian priest and fusion style wedding with a traditional Mandap. Both of them are from a western culture, but they are a strong believers in Hindu culture and are very much into Yoga. Which explains some of the shots with their Yoga pose.

The wedding and reception took place at the beautiful DC Ranch Country Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. Sonia and I had a wonderful time capturing their love and wish both Heidi and Ari a happy life together!

Scottsdale Arizona Engagement: Vikram + Pooja E-Shoot

  I had such an amazing time doing an E-Shoot for Vikram and Pooja.  As you can see these two make a beautiful couple and are full of life.  We had planned a sunset shoot followed by night shoot around downtown Scottsdale, AZ.  They were awesome to work with and were open to many ideas I had suggested.  I can’t wait for their Christmas day wedding in LA!
