The Ultimate questions answered before planning a trip to Kauai
Spring of 2019 witnessed a cross-cultural wedding at Saratoga's quaint country club. After seeing this fun-filled South-Indian Wedding rituals of these two love birds, I couldn't help but fall in love. The couple chose to feature red, orange and gold accents at their vibrant Spring wedding. Our beautiful bride Priyanka wore an orange colour saree woven with intricate zari work that complemented the traditional sherwani worn by charming groom - Dan. Both of them made sure the ensemble was in line with the telugu cultural vibe.
Every wedding has a story to tell and what really transformed their story to an intimate one was their awkwardness in front of camera. A lot of couples feel shy which is very natural and this couple found it extremely hilarious to pose. Their failed attempt to pose became a photographer's delight because it led to giggles and laughter that no posing guide can create. During the entire wedding, my favourite part was capturing them off guard on camera. I am so thrilled as the pictures turned out absolutely fantastic helping them to look back and laugh again.
In my 5 years of photography career, I have shot south Indian rituals but this was my first as a Telugu wedding photographer in Bay Area, California. It had so many little rituals back to back that if you blink, you will miss it. Now if you are looking for a south Indian wedding photographer near you, this blog is a must have post on your hand.

“As the owner of a small photography business in Maryland, I was assigned the task of finding a good wedding photographer in the San Francisco Bay area for our son and his fiancé's wedding. After looking online and comparing services and portfolio images, I met with the owner of A Few Good Clicks, Priyanka Sharma, in person. We spoke for 90 minutes, and I was favorably impressed by her knowledge, experience, and approach to telling the story of a bride and groom's special day. We engaged Ms. Sharma with high expectations, which she far exceeded. On the wedding day, she and her second shooter were comprehensive in their approach to the pre-ceremony portraits, and during the ceremonies themselves, were everywhere yet seemingly unnoticed. Hindu weddings are long and complex, yet she captured the sense of tradition, modernity, happiness, and love with her varied and detailed images, which were also notable for their composition, lighting, and vibrant colors. Although she generally used a hands-off photojournalistic approach, her guidance, when necessary, was expert and gentle, with great results. She maintained a friendly, enthusiastic manner throughout the ceremonies and reception, despite what must have been a very tiring day for her. The images that she produced were some of the best wedding photographs I have ever seen, covering the story of their wedding day as well as I could have imagined. When I review the pictures, I am immediately brought back to the sounds, the excitement, the friends, and the emotions that filled the day. I was thrilled to be present at our son's and his wife's wedding, but also delighted to have learned so much as a photographer watching a master at work. Priyanka Sharma is that master, and I would recommend her without reservation to her prospective clients”.
