India Destination Wedding – Kolkata & Indore

We traveled to the other side of the world to photograph this incredible India Destination Wedding in Kolkota and Indore.  5 Days of amazing color, rich textures, and beautiful traditions hosted by the most welcoming families.

We first met Dita and Neel in San Diego where they were both studying at UCSD.  We had photographed several weddings for their friends, and when it came time for them to start planning their own big celebration, they knew that photography was the one thing they didn’t want to compromise on.  Their families took the lead on planning all of the details for a breathtaking celebration in India and the couples one caveat was that they get to bring along their own photo duo to capture all of the amazingness.  They asked if we would consider coming along on their wedding adventure…and we enthusiastically responded that we wouldn’t miss it for the world!  Knowing that we would be traveling over Christmas, and for an extended period of time, they invited us to bring our daughter Nakoa along and to attend every event as a family.

The week we spent with them was like a dream.  From the Mendhi Henna Celebration, and wild dancing in the streets with a marching band and horse drawn carriage, to intimate sunrise ceremonies, flower cannons, and a Sangeet Cocktail Party complete with Bollywood star performers.  This wedding was unlike anything we have ever experienced!

FROM THE COUPLE

Our experiences with Jen and Shane have been absolutely amazing. We first saw them in action at a friend’s wedding and were so impressed by their professionalism, friendliness and awesome attitudes. When we saw their pictures, we were completely sold and decided to do our engagement shoot with them. These came out even better than expected, so when it came time for our wedding in India, we asked if they would be up for it and were so happy when they said they would love to do it. Through our week there, Jen and Shane were both so accommodating and worked around our very fickle schedules. They took pictures that captured not just the events, but so much emotion – they were above and beyond what we were hoping for. They were also just so easy to work with and fun to be around. We would recommend them to anyone without any hesitation!
