So, none of you are creepy right?  None of you, out there in internet wonderland, have been stalking our blog for any considerable length of time, right?

You know who you are.

You’ve noticed, surely, that we’ve been capturing more Indian events the past couple of years.  They’re set with poise and purpose, and it’s with great pleasure that I present you with a few of my favs, Sepali & Drew.

Sometimes I take things too far.

Indian Mehndi ClevelandI kind of love how the flowered henna mimics her ring’s design, in a loose way.

Best Indian Wedding Photographers ClevelandI love this part of the wedding day.  The bride preps away in her secluded room, whilst the groom parties with his friends and family in a raucous Barat.  It’s a blast to watch and be a part of.

Thank you, Sepali and Drew, for letting all of us experience your particularly amazing brand of awesome.  We had a blast and we appreciate you.  May Barrio follow you wherever you go, and may there always be salsa-inspired receptions.  Amen.
