Here are two people [ and their families ] that we adore. Meet Kitty and Apram.  Get lost in their imagery, but do not forget that there are two incredible, adventurous, and wonderful people at the center of it all.

The Same Day Edit

Seen above; A short tribute to their weekend from our award winning wedding cinema team. Cut partially from a Same Day Edit we produced for their reception.

Best Indian Wedding Photographers“The Boys”; as Apram continually referred to them throughout the weekend.  They did NOT hold back.

Candid Wedding PhotographersBefore we get too far; a huge shout out to all the wonderful professional wedding vendors we worked alongside to make their wedding weekend a possibility.

Experienced Indian Wedding PhotographerThese two images say SO much about Apram.  Energy, enthusiasm, life.  That is the soul of this man.

outdoor indian weddingFun Selfie Prank; grab any non-phone object that is rectangular [ a pop-tart for instance  ], and then grab someone near you around. Hold the object [ pop-tart ] up to the two of you and yell out “Selfie!!!”. I promise you [ I do this constantly ] your friend will literally pose for the object like a camera, and even go through multiple faces with you.  I swear to God; I did this once and the next day a a friend texted me “OMG Please text me that selfie of us so I can post them!”

Best Indian Wedding PhotographersLook at the life. Seriously; a Vatna is such a fun pre-event before our Indian weddings [ in this case an outdoor Sikh Wedding Ceremony ] as it brings together close family and friends.

Unique Indian Wedding PhotographerKitty’s sisters are SO freaking cute! Sidenote; not only do I love their choice in color for their Vatna dress [ yellow is legit my favorite color ], but I think it’s might smart.  The paste used is often mixed with a bit of mustard and turmeric [ or similar ], and unless you have PLENTY of stain stick handy, having yellow as the mainstay of your attire is wicked intelligent.

outdoor sikh weddingSuper enthusiastic picture of aunties! I feel like this image is so happy, I could place it literally anywhere in this blog and you’d be like “ohmuhgawd how sweet, all these women are so encouraging and happy!”. Yes. I’m going to do that now. 

war memorial michigan outdoor weddingDrone photography for the win. Kitty and Apram hosted an outdoor Sikh wedding ceremony at the War Memorial in Gross Pointe Michigan. We are experienced Indian wedding photographers and videographers; I can count on one hand how many Sikh wedding ceremonies I’ve photographed outside of a gurdwara.

outdoor sikh wedding ceremonySo, yes, this is exceptionally rare.  Although I have been the wedding photographer at a few outdoor Indian weddings, this is my first outdoor Sikh wedding.

Best Sikh Wedding PhotographersThe mandap was just out of this world.

Unique Indian Wedding PhotographerMajor tangent here; check out Kitty’s Mehndi. AMAZING. I also love the color in her outfit.  Sincerely; it’s like all my favorite parts of the rainbow were perfectly placed on her.

Indian wedding henna designsA little rivalry here. Of all the places they connect, Kitty and Apram have a slight debate over which Michigan team is in fact the real Michigan team.

Fun Indian Wedding PhotographyExperienced Sikh Wedding PhotographerFrom their wedding attire to their wedding reception outfits; the two are on fleek.

Fun Indian Wedding PhotographyOk, so true story; I don’t know what Fleek is, or why someone would be on that substance. In fact, I misspelled it at first. I thought the phrase was “on flakes” until I took a moment to google it, and discovered how off I was.

Best Indian Wedding PhotographerNow before you go making fun of me and think to yourself “what a moron, what the heck does “on flakes” even mean??? that makes no sense!”;  think to yourself about how much sense “On Fleek” means.  Go ahead. Tell me.  What does it mean?  What the hell are we even talking about when we say that?  Periodt.

Best Indian Wedding PhotographerI mean, I don’t actually know if that’s what they were talking about; I really can’t remember.  But it seems fitting right?

Novi Sheraton indian weddingWow. Kitty. Geez.
