When Dr. Abbas called me to discuss photographing his son's engagement celebration I was very excited by the idea. I had done Indian celebrations in the past and they are always spectacular affairs and I love capturing the color and the decor. It was a terrific meeting with him and his family and when the day finally came my assistant and i couldn't have hoped for a better welcome.
I started by capturing candids of arriving guests and then we stepped around the property in Dyer, Indiana for engagement portraits of Amir and Taylor, our happy couple.
This Indian American engagement celebration was filled with food, laughter and love. Children played and adults mingled as I captured the event reportage style.
Amir and Taylor were to exchange gifts on a stage specially built inside the home as friends and family looked on. Amir placed the ring upon his bride and she presented him with a beautiful luxury watch. Taylor's American family and her soon to be Indian family were both present on the stage. As Dr. Abbas stated in his terrific speech, we are a melting pot of people and cultures. The engagement celebration was a terrific example of this.
After the ceremony, dinner was served and it was time for family photographs. A terrific time was had by all and soon they will be together once again for the wedding of Amir and Taylor.
