Sneha & Rajat: Portrait Session on day of Sangeet

Sneha and Rajat got married at this gorgeous winery in Gilroy / Morgan Hill called Hecker Pass Winery this last weekend. This is a destination wedding as they as well as the family are all from the east coast. I actually did not meet Sneha prior to signing a contract, but was amazed at the details that were attended to in planning this destination wedding. It really was a beautiful event. Everything was pink to coincide with Sneha's pink attire.

Here are some quick shots we took before the Sangeet event started on Friday April 18.

My new Canon 1Ds Mark 111

I got to say if I were to list the top three materialistic things I want in life the Canon 1Ds Mark 111 would easily fall into that list. So when my tax guy told me I need to spend a lot of money on equipment in 2008 I didnt waste any time to buy it. It is just a SUPERB camera. So now I own the following canon cameras: 1ds Mark 111, 1dMark 11n, 5D and cant forget about my 20D. There are a few really obvious nice things about the 1ds
+ ISO is EASILY accessible. Thank you! It requires two buttons to get to it on my 1dM2n.
+ View Screen is a lot bigger.
+ Battery is a lot lighter than the 1d M2n
+ 22 Major Mega pixels.
+ Full Frame
And much much more. Will write more about this when I have more time.

I have been lugging this around town just taking pics. Here are some pics of my baby girl and my sister.

South Asian Wedding Planner

I have been thinking about building a South Asian wedding planner / organizer for years now. After shooting so many weddings, talking to so many brides and realizing the lack of a central organizer specifically around South Asian weddings, I decided to write one. This took months of labor, and lots of input from my brides, family and friends. But that was the easy part.. Now I have boxes of these in my garage and I have to sell them. I think there is a market out there so check it out:


Also if you are a vendor and want to advertise in the Vendor section at the tail-end of this planner, please follow the link on the site above.
