She shared some sweet moments with her mom and two bridesmaids:

Kristen looked so gorgeous with her Grecian-inspired headpiece and dress:

 Then it was off to his first look with Kristen:

This courtyard was the BEST spot for their portraits. No one was around, so we had total privacy and the light was AMAZING!

It’s so obvious that these two are perfect for each other. They constantly smiled while at each other’s side.

Again, I mean, come on, look at how perfect Kristen looked in her grecian gown.

After the portraits, it was time to get MARRIED, so we headed to Torrey Pines State Reserve.

Their ceremony site was gorgeous! Perched atop an outlook with views all around it was the best setting for a wedding.

Then it was time to party, so we headed to the San Diego Botanic Garden.

But before the party started we make good use of the last few minutes of golden light:

Kristen & Tony met in Antarctica, so of course, they had to have an earth cake with Antarctica atop it.

rancho valencia, rancho santa fe, california – baby naming ceremony – the upasani family

When Priya contacted me about photographing her son’s naming ceremony I was pretty excited. It’s always fun to photograph new events and to be part of a family’s special day.

Rancho Valenica is a lovely place and was a great setting for their son’s special day.

Floral Design by Ari did a lovely job with the centerpieces:

We started off the day with portraits of their sweet family:

Salil narrated the ceremony to let everyone know what was happening.

First the women blessed Priya and her children:

Then the two grandmas passed a rock (I think) around the cradle to absorb all the bad luck.

Then all the women joined in and sang some songs. And his name was whispered to him.

The day ended with a magician for the kids. They LOVED his show.
