Pooja and Sandeep are a very energetic and fun loving couple that we have had the privilege to photograph. We had an amazing time during their engagement shoot in Hoboken, New Jersey. The photoshoot started early in the evening and we had the opportunity to use the New York City Skyline as the backdrop. Their wedding took place on a beautiful July day at the Radisson Hotel in Piscataway, New Jersey. As most Indian weddings, the day started bright and early in Pooja’s suite.
We captured some beautiful portraits as Pooja prepared for the first look. One of the many advantages of having two photographers is that we can photograph different scenarios at the same time. We were able to capture photos of Pooja getting ready, while simultaneously capturing Sandeep’s prep photos.
Shortly after that, we set the groom up outside as he impatiently waited for his soon-to-be bride for the first look. Their reactions were priceless.
There are many intricate details in Indian weddings and one of them is “Henna”. The Henna design on our bride's hands and wrists were very vibrant & detailed.
We cannot possibly describe how beautiful Pooja’s traditional dress looked. It was full of life and color and Pooja carried it flawlessly.
Soon after the first look and portraits, Sandeep and his side of the family lined up for the Baraat festival. Traditional baraat ceremony usually involves the groom riding on a horse or an elephant, a lot of music and dancing!
Before we started photographing the Bride, Groom and bridal party for the reception, we created a unique photo of the Groom and his Groomsmen. Our Groom is a huge fan LeBron James and wanted to recreate a chalk toss with his Groomsmen. The picture displayed is the aftermath.
We love photographing speeches and toasts. They can be hilarious, emotional and captivating. Sandeep and Pooja's wedding reception had all of these emotions and some. We were able to photograph the speakers and the reaction of the Bride and Groom during each speech. Having two photographers at the wedding, allowed us to capture both the speaker and the Bride and Groom simultaneously.
This was followed by the first dance, father and daughter dance, an energetic son and mother dance and more dancing throughout the reception night.
Pooja & Sandeep, thank you for sharing your wedding day with us. We had such an amazing time for photographing the both of you. Also, Preeti said to "stay closer!".
