After a week of festivities at the Sheraton Blue Lagoon, Nisha & Jiten's reception was held at the Dusit - right next to the Sheraton Blue Lagoon Resort. A classic hotel and venue for a couple with the discerning eye. The lush white decor with gorgeous white flowers and candle stands, a candle lit back-drop for the stage, a tall white wedding cake and winter wonderland blue mood lighting made for the perfect finale to one of the most fun weddings we have photographed and filmed over the past few years. With amazing performance from contemporary thai dancers dancing to bollywood songs beginning the evening, it only got better as the night progressed. Followed by a jaw dropping performance, full of energy, by Adnan Sami, who sang a rock version of his superhit song - Lift Kara De. And finally DJ Sharad Bhavnani & Marco made the guests groove to peppy dance numbers into the wee hours. Nisha's perfect off white dress with swarovskis, Jiten's classic black tuxedo, and a battery operated portable fan were perfect for glamour portraits, which we photographed 5 days before the wedding! Again kudos to Adam, Serge, Sasha & Dwiko for all the help and amazing work.
This was our first attempt at a hybrid concept video by incorporating stop motion. It was an amazing weekend filming with Mohit and Shephali in Chicago. They were very sporting about the long torturous hours for three consecutive days. Had a great time working with Ram and Aaqib and big thanks to them for coordinating the entire production. Ayan from Austin was very generous with his time and story boarded the stop motion scenes for us. But none of this would have been possible without the generous support from Chicago Transit Authority [ Joyce Shaw was amazing to work with and she made our shoot on CTA property a breeze ] and W Lakeshore, Chicago. I would also like to thank Steve, Pete and Doug from ProGear Rental for all the help during the stop motion shoot.

A short trailer that takes you through the journey into payal & bijals wedding that took place in Dar-es-salaam, Tanzania. This one is very special to us being that we attended and filmed my best friend's wedding. Stay tuned for details and more clips from the wedding.
The wedding story filmed in Los Angeles. August 09
This piece takes us through (in flashes) their wedding journey which was simply a spectacle. Hopefully, the piece does justice to the couple and to the beautiful, glamorous wedding that they had

A short love story filmed in california about Reshma & Harsheel. This was also filmed with the canon 5D mark II and was showcased on their reception night August 15th at the Langham Resort. Sid & I had very little production time (only two and a half days) but thankfully we managed to complete all the scenes baring a few fillers. Special permission was taken to film at the Long Beach airport. The PR lady was really gracious to let us do a scene without any charge and also to allow permit on very late notice.
The wedding, pre-wedding events, reception was also an incredible experience. We formed some great friendships with the couple..the families and also with vendors. Both the families were incredibly warm and full of life.! the wedding was gorgeous, the reception was a blast.. We couldn't stop ourselves from having fun with everyone. We will soon post trailers/sneak peaks from the actual events. This was simply and incredibly unique, lavish and gorgeous wedding.
