{Sameer & Shannon} San Diego Wedding


I simply have too many wonderful things to say about Sameer and Shannon so I’ll just share a few of the basics. They are truly kind, thoughtful, humble and wonderful individuals. We were more than blessed to work with them.

We had been looking forward to their wedding immensely. One of the reasons is because they were having a traditional Indian ceremony/celebration the day before their contemporary wedding. Sean and I had never photographed an Indian wedding before so we were so excited and looking forward to the challenge.

I’m breaking their wedding up into two blog posts because it was that wonderful! Plus I feel like the indian ceremony deserved its own post. :-)

The colors at the ceremony were breathtaking. There were so many beautiful details and it was amazing to witness another culture’s traditions.
