Elora & Rajiv – somewhere in the heart of Bali

June 6, 2012

We’re only two days into Elora and Rajiv’s wedding here in the mountains in the heart of Bali. One day left to go.

And I’m already lost for words.

Like…truly…out of them.

The (first) wedding ceremony was in a river. In. A. River. We’re heading to a temple today for a hindu Balinese blessing and I’m shooting it in traditional Balinese clothing, head-dress, sarong and all. It’s been a deeply moving couple of days so far.

And it’s not even close to over yet.


Love looking through your blog, that the haze in the background in the first shot really makes the bride and groom pop out the image.

These wedding photos are just so incredibly beautiful. All I can say is WOW!

Come to the US to do a workshop please!!! You are absolutely amazing. I am literally lost for words when I look at your work.

Gorgeous picture.. Elora looks soo Pwetty..
Waiting to see the rest !

I cannot wait to see more from this wedding – these are so beautiful.

All I can say is this exactly how a girl would picture her dream wedding to be like:) fingers cross this is what I am wishing for :)
