susan & dipesh: married | edmonton wedding photographer

I’m one lucky girl.  When I married my husband 6 years ago, I also gained 3 of the most amazing sisters-in-law and I can tell you that you’d be hard pressed to find a bond tighter than ours.  So when one of them got married last month I knew 2 things for sure:  1) I wanted to skip out on being their hired photographer for the day so that I could really be a part of all the festivities and not work my butt off.  And 2) that I would still inevitably wind up shooting a ton because I can just never help myself!!! haha.

I thought I’d share a tiny glimpse into Susan & Dipesh’s wedding events from the perspective of me as a guest (and let me tell you, maneuvering around trying to get shots in my heavy and contricting traditional sari was not an easy feat!) First off, was the Mehndi Party where the ladies all got traditional henna tattoos applied.

For these cousins, only ONE thing tops getting to dress up in Disney princess dresses~ and that would be getting to wear Indian sari’s.  They LIVE for this.  😉

Then came the traditional Gujarati ceremony held at a temple.  Most of my shots were taken just from my seat in the crowd with my 50mm lens~ I had to constantly resist my natural urge to jump up and get right in there for the shots!

Indian ceremonies can be long~ kids gotta do what they gotta do to pass the time 😉

So after the ceremony I did get to don my “Wedding Photographer” cap for just a bit as I took Susan, Dipesh and their bridal party Jasmine & Danny to the Art Gallery of Alberta for their “US” session.  I loooved how the colors of their outfits really popped against the clean lines of the venue.

“Stunning” does not begin to describe Susan!  Dipesh, you’re not looking too shabby either 😉

Suz~ you know I love you like a sister, and Dipesh~ welcome officially to the family!  You two are perfect together and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you.  Now go make some baby cousins for Aaliyah & Kai!!
