Smitha & Shym: A vibrant Indian wedding

This weekend I shot a destination wedding with Scott Watt in Champions Gate, FL for Smitha and Shym. I adore Indian weddings for all their color, color and more color! And I also love all the sparkly jewels and over the top decadance. Their celebrations are nothing short of detailed fabulousness. It is always fascinating to me too to follow all the traditions that differ from American weddings.

Smitha was amazing to photograph with her supermodel looks. I told her she reminded me of Jaslene on this season's America's Next Top Model, only more gorgeous. Shym is one lucky guy! They shared such a beautiful simple affection for each other that I enjoyed capturing for them.
