Everyone all right after Snowmageddon ’16? In lieu of this freezing weather and precipitation, I’d like to present to you some images from Amanda and Ranjan’s fun-filled, warmer weather’d celebration of two wonderful people and two beautiful cultures coming together on a glorious day in the Garden State.
You’ve seen Amanda and Ranjan before on this blog, when we did their Beloved engagement session in Madison Square Park. Over the course of the year, we got to know each other pretty well and I have to say… I am so fortunate, in this line of work, to be able to work with and get to know some amazing people, like these two lovebirds.
From the moment we met to this very day, Amanda and Ranjan exhibit pure class and generosity, while also being extremely down to earth and an absolute joy to work with.
Ranjan himself is an avid photographer so the pressure is always a little bit more intense in those circumstances, but at the same time, we all know the best work comes from just letting the artist do his or her thing. (As long as you know what you’re expecting, of course). And that, I remember, was exactly what Amanda and Ranjan said to me on our initial meeting.
Fast forward to the big day. It was a gorgeous and warm afternoon. I walked into the hotel and the area where I thought the bride and groom were getting ready, but all I saw were half naked humongous dudes walking around, stretching and getting massages.
Um… I think I’m in the wrong place.
So it turns out, the San Francisco 49ers were staying at that hotel since they were playing the Giants that weekend. They were kind of a surly bunch, but I understand, I’d be that way too if I was having the season they were having. Zing!
Anyways, I eventually got to the right spot (one floor down) and our day officially began. Below are a few images from that wonderful day. Take a break from shoveling your car out of the snow (I mean come on, it’s gonna take a couple more hours anyways) or take a break from work (you’re probably checking Facebook anyway) and enjoy the show!
Amanda and Ranjan, it was truly a pleasure and an honor to document your big day. Can’t wait to get together for dinner and drinks later this week and catch up. We’ll drink to the Mets signing Yoenis. 🙂
Have a wonderful day everyone!
