Archana + Veeral were married at the Pacific Palms Resort, a beautiful hilltop golf resort overlooking the San Gabriel Valley Mountains.


As a wedding photographer you are constantly under a lot of pressure to capture every important moment, and, because of their complexity, this is increased ten-fold during South-Asian weddings.  But also, you get a front row seat to some of the most beautiful ceremonies.


Archana and Veeral’s ceremony was breathtaking.  The amount of love that these two people are surrounded with – their extended families, their friends…is unreal.


I got overwhelmed quite a few times shooting this. I wish I could tell you how emotional the day was. I hope that it shows from the pictures. Thank You Krista Malinin for the seamless event coordination and Smita Mohindra for the beautiful décor.


Archana, Veeral, I wish you all the happiness in the world!
