I traveled to the Bay Area to photograph Vivek & Raveen’s beautiful Hindu ceremony in Palo Alto, followed by a reception in San Francisco. A hat tip goes to my old friend Sujith Kumar for recommending my photography to Vivek and Raveen. Having documented South Asian weddings in the past, I was reminded why I love these eastern traditions. Its hard to explain what it feels like to be at the center of such a powerful event, but what inspires me the most is the eclectic mix of color, light, spirituality, family and love. Thank you, Vivek & Raveen, for seeing value in what I do.
