Shruti & Shrey | A Traditional Indian Wedding Celebration

June 21, 2018

Let me start off by saying that I could photograph weddings like Shruti and Shrey’s every weekend for the rest of my life and be the happiest photographer in the world! I could not stop smiling throughout the day as these two sweethearts tied the knot in front of their family and friends in an intimate ceremony at Shruti’s home, then celebrated and danced the night away at an evening reception.

Over their six years together, Shruti and Shrey—who met at the University of Maryland—have been through so much including being on opposite sides of the planet while Shrey was in India for a time. One of my favorite parts of the day was seeing a performance by the couple’s family and friends that told the story of their lives including their childhoods, meeting in college, their long-distance relationship, and finally their much-anticipated wedding day! All of the thought, heart, and dedication put into the performance as so special and the talent…don’t even get me started on how talented everyone was in bringing their story to life!

Shruti and Shrey: thank you so much for inviting me to capture these special memories for you. I hope you enjoy re-living the day through this blog post. I’m so excited for you both as you begin this exciting new adventure in your lives!

I also have to give a special shoutout to all of the incredible vendors that brought Shruti and Shrey’s big day to life!
