Brantwyn was the beautiful setting for the August wedding of Rachel and Neel.
Rachel and Neel came to me after attending Deanna and Aaron’s wedding at The Camden Aquarium about a year ago. After a wonderful first meeting with Rachel and Neel and Neel’s family at my studio, (where Neel’s dad and I enjoyed talking about the techie aspect of photography), I was really excited to shoot the wedding. They were planning what was sure to be a festive and colorful event. They didn’t let me down and provided me with so much to photograph. You can’t miss with a first look at a staircase like this!
Once again, I had the pleasure of having Rebecca Barger shoot with me. While I was busy photographing the bride getting ready, she was busy with the groom and the detail shots below. Thanks Rebecca – always a pleasure to work with you!
After the outdoor ceremony, Rachel and Neel changes into traditional Indian clothes for the remainder of the evening. I must say, Rachel looked stunning in her wedding dress and was a knock out in the brightly colored saree.
I think this is one of my favorite shots of a family welcoming a new bride.
Neel’s mom decided that the wedding would not be complete without a bollywood dancer, Inessa. It was so wonderful when the beautiful grounds of Brantwyn turned into a backyard party as the guests got up to dance with Inessa. At first I was concerned about the challenges of lighting a group in the almost pitch black outdoors, but found the setting to be wonderful and rich once I set up my lights.
Congratulations Rachel and Neel and thank you for letting me be a part of such a wonderful and photogenic celebration.
