Melissa and Atul

I’ve known Melissa and her family for quite a while, since the late 90’s. So, I was happy to shoot her and Atul’s wedding in Austin, along side Melissa’s brother and my friend Matt.

It had been sprinkling some that morning and about an hour before the ceremony, it began to pour. Everyone hurried to get all the stuff under the house’s big front porch. Wedding time. The traditional American ceremony began in the front room and moved outside to the patio for the Saat Phere ceremony, with new friends and new family shoulder to shoulder. The rain brought everyone together for a cozy ceremony. As the ceremony ended, the clouds had passed and the party began under the big tree outside.

Good times!
