Rupal and Mitch’s Indian wedding at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie, NY was one I have been looking forward to photographing ever since their beautiful engagement at Vassar College a few months ago (when it was just a bit colder). It was a doozy of a day, filled with so much awesomeness a wedding planner was most definitely needed, and they had a great one in Ali Barone Events. Two cultures, two wedding ceremonies, one Baraat, a giant party, and an incalculable amount of fun was had by all on this glorious day from beginning to end. Speaking of beginnings, Rupal and her bridesmaids started it off by preparing at the Courtyard Marriott in Poughkeepsie, getting beautified by the talented crew at Salon 52 Studios. They then moved on to one of the best wedding venues in the Hudson Valley- The Grandview. With picturesque wide-spanning views of the Hudson river, a well-kept pier just a walk away, and a friendly cooperative staff, this has quickly become one of my very favorite places at which to photograph couples. And when the couple is as unquestionably in love as Rupal and Mitch, my business instantly transforms into pleasure. There was little I needed to do in the way of coaxing action, as these two lovebirds are not only ridiculously good-looking, but also incredibly adorable together in their little mannerisms and subtle gestures.. As a wedding photographer, one of the things I treasure most as a side effect, is being able to, for just a few hours, join in on others’ lives simply by osmosis. As a husband and father, the best parts of my day are watching parents interact with each other and their newlywed children. That joy on this day was real, and when it’s plain to see, it’s anything but plain to photograph. True emotion is always something I seek, and Rupal and Mitch’s wedding was overflowing with it. Thanks so much to my ever-amazing associate shooter, Haris, for contributing some fantastic images as always. Enjoy the wedding photos, guys! I hope you love viewing them as much as I loved capturing them. =)
