Purnima + Sam (Mehendi and Haldi) : Patiala Candid Wedding Photography

Purnima and I went to the same college, although she was a year ahead of me and I don’t think we’d ever interacted in college! A couple of years later, she saw some images I’d taken at one of my besties’ wedding with my Canon T3i and then newly purchased and 50mm 1.8 lens! And then her turn to get married came around and she contacted me and I was ecstatic at the idea of shooting a wedding in Patiala, Punjab – a part of the country I’d never been to before so we just made it happen. And how glad I am that we did!

My second-shooter, Gen had her birthday the day that we arrived in Patiala and somehow the bride and her family got to know (I might have had something to do with that) and they went totally out of their way and bought the most delicious chocolate cake and other birthday paraphernalia so we could celebrate. It was the sweetest thing.

Thanks Purnima and Sam and all of your amazing family and friends for giving us a time to remember in Patiala!

Here is part 1 of Purnima + Sam’s Gujarati-Rajasthani Wedding in Patiala!
