Sohini and Chetan’s Paradisus Cancun Indian Wedding was a weekend-long affair on the beach in Mexico. Day one started with a traditional Vidhi ceremony. The Vidhi is made up of several ceremonies: Mandva Maturate & Griha Shanti, Pithi and Mameru. In the Mandva Maturate & Griha Shanti, the parents seek the blessing of Mother Earth by blessing dirt which will be used to build the base of the mandaap, the wedding day structure. The Pithi is the ceremony where the bride and/or groom are covered in a turmeric paste blessed by the priest. The idea is to purify and bless the bride and groom. The Mameru is the final ceremony of the Vidhi in which the bride and groom receives traditional gifts. For Sohini and Chet, it was so hot in Cancun, that all of their Vidhi ceremonies were held in the air-conditioned indoors. This allowed us to create interesting and dramatic light using our GL-1 Hotlights. The Vidhi is one of our favorite events to photograph as there are many emotional moments between the family members. When it was all over we all headed out to the ocean to wash off the turmeric paste.

Later that night we joined them again for their Sangeet – a traditional huge party thrown the night before the wedding. Early the next day, Sohini and Chet were married on the beach in a traditional Hindu ceremony. A few hours they had an amazing reception which lasted well into the night. Chetan’s Dad jumped into the arms of his friends during the dancing. It is one of my favorite images to date.

The Paradisus Cancun is an all-inclusive hotel located in Cancun. Located on the Caribbean Sea, Cancun is one of the easternmost points in Mexico. With white sand beaches and aqua blue waters, it is a remarkable spot for a destination wedding. And if you are like Sohini and Chet and are from Florida, its only a 1.5 hour flight.

Jessica and Kia’s Viceroy Santa Monica Engagement was an absolute blast for us to shoot. Why? They are a blast!!! Photographed in the lobby and by the pool of the Viceroy Santa Monica, we had so much fun working with these guys. Later we finished the shoot on the beach in Santa Monica – directly across the street. The Viceroy Santa Monica is available for rental by the hour. It is one of our favorite places to shoot for its sophistication and location.

Our lead Associate Lauren Belknap’s San Pedro Engagement Photos of Jason and Alexandria are simply stunning! Photographed in downtown San Pedro and Point Fermin Park, these images truly represent Jason and Alexandria’s love for each other and the South Bay, and their style. Interesting fact: Point Fermin Park is the southernmost location in Los Angeles and is often used as a film location. From this spot there are amazing views of the coast and Channel Islands.

Donya and Mike’s Disney Concert Hall Engagement was photographed at one of Los Angeles’ most famous landmarks. Home to the LA Philharmonic, the Walt Disney Concert Hall is a photographer’s dream. Built with stainless steel, the structure produces dramatic light, reflections and shadows. It’s the perfect backdrop for a sophisticated and sexy downtown Los Angeles engagement. After we walked around the streets of downtown and wrapped the shoot on one of the many bridges that cross the LA River.
