My best friend's multi-day Indian destination wedding: I was her wedding photographer and her bridesmaid

One of the most exciting things that happened so far in my photography career is having the honour to both be a bridesmaid and the photographer for my best friend’s wedding. If that didn’t evoke significant amounts of anxiety, sprinkle in the fact that this was a multi-day, Indian wedding in Orlando, Florida, too. Yes, my best friend moved from Vancouver, B.C. to Florida. Yes, my best friend had a multi-day, multi-event Indian wedding. And yes, I flew all the way there to both be her bridesmaid and to photograph her wedding. Challenging? Yes. Would I do it again? 1000 times yes.

At first, I was hesitant to take on this role, especially when I received many hesitant “oh wow you’re a bridesmaid AND a photographer?” reactions from my fellow wedding photographer friends. But I knew that this is what I wanted to do for my best friend. Through this experience, I got to be by her side throughout every single moment of her wedding, and watch every moment unfold through my camera lens. I spent a week fully immersed in their beautiful culture, with their family and closest friends. Suma and Nikhil, I love you both so dearly. Thank you for putting your trust in me and for welcoming me with open arms into your home and the beginning of your marriage.


I couldn’t have done this without the lovely Mitra from Eclectic Elegance Photography. Thank you for being the best second/associate shooter for the Wedding and Reception!
