Golden Love – Guyanese Wedding Video of Anand & Samantha

Anand and Samantha’s Guyanese wedding ceremony took place at the Garden Falls, NJ. Sunny day, clear sky, beautiful fall colors, outdoor ceremony, groom entering in the helicopter and bride with the Ferrari. That is the shortest way I can describe their wedding day.

Anand & Samantha, two beautiful & creative souls who just wanted something unique so they did many things which are not very common at the wedding such as helicopter and Ferrari entrances, drums and bridal party intros with glowing sticks. Their wedding ceremony was very traditional and reception was full of energy so the music selection was very critical. Usually I start slow and end fast for most of my highlights but this time I wanted to try roller coaster editing in which I went from slow to fast to slow to fast. Anand & Samantha both are artists so my heartbeats went up on the roof when showed them the final film first time. When I heard Anand saying “We can’t get over how great you did that video. You really will make everyone cry which is what we want lol”. I could breathe again.

This was our first Guyanese wedding and I must say that when they dance, they dance for real and one night is very very short for the celebration.

 

Monique & Karan Moon Palace Wedding – Cancun, Mexico

Here is the highlight film from Monique & Karan Moon Palace Wedding. Beautiful venue located in Cancun, Mexico. Nothing can be better than three days wedding festivities in destination location with friends and family.

Tips for Bride & Groom:
1. Monique & Karan got married in January, 2015. They planned all wedding festivities to be outdoor; unfortunately wedding week turned out to be rainy week and all the events took place indoor except the wedding ceremony. Bride & Groom who are planning wedding there, make sure to have plan B in place if it rains.
2. Do not plan early morning wedding ceremony if you having welcome party or Sangeet night before. In most cases, party will not end anytime before 3.00AM. It may be hard to keep yourself awake during the wedding ceremony.
3. Plan photo and/or video shoot outside of the Resort. There are so many great places in Cancun so take advantage of it. Keep enough room for the shoot on your itinerary is important.
4. Hire a Wedding Planner (not the one from the Resort) who has experience with destination weddings. Believe me, it will help you in many ways.
5. Keep Wedding ceremony and Reception on separate days in the evening. Soft evening light for Wedding ceremony is just perfect.

Here are few tips for wedding vendors who are planning to shoot wedding in Mexico. This was our first wedding shoot in Mexico. We are located in NJ, USA and before flying there we were little nervous for many reasons. After hours of research and travelling to Mexico, here are few things we learned.

1. If you are US citizen, you do not need to get a Visa.
2. Take early flight. Lines are usually long at the Cancun airport.
3. Be honest to Mexican authorities. You are going there for business so say it when asked.
4. Going in and out of Cancun airport/customs is smooth. Do not worry even if you have so much equipment. You are going there to shoot and having so many bags in normal.
5. Currency rate at the Cancun airport is not the best. Find other places.
6. If time permits and truly want to have fun, rent a car. Taxi rides are pretty expensive.
7. Try out local food.

Ketti + Arpit – The Seamless Love – Indian Wedding Cinematography at The Venetian, NJ

May be it was their love, may be it was the fun loving family & friends, may be it was the beautiful weather;  I do not know but there was something special about Ketti & Arpit’s wedding day. I am saying this because I had lots of energy when we starting shooting at 5.30AM and I had same energy when we stopped shooting at 12.00AM. I show three things on that day around me: Love, Fun and Energy. This wedding is the perfect example of why we love to do Indian Wedding Cinematography.

When I talked to Ketti first time, I could here in her voice that it is going to be something different and challenging. Ketti & Arpit wanted something different for their SDE (Same Day Highlights) so we decided to do short shoot prior to the wedding day. They both are all about fun and that is what we tried to capture in the pre-wedding shoot using various props. All the credit goes to Ketti for selecting beautiful song for the highlights. We have done many SDE in past but this was the only time when I was not sure what would be the reaction of Ketti & Arpit when they watch their video.

I should not say this but my happiest moment was when I show Ketti, Arpit, both parents and siblings in tears while watching the video during the reception. I knew at that moment that NYNJ Photography team did it. I did get little emotional when Ketti & Arpit hugged me during the reception thanking NYNJ Photography for the great job we did. This is the reason we love what we do.

Check out the video and let us know how we did.

First Step – Ameet & Jaskaran Highlights: Sikh Wedding Film

I can’t stop smiling every time I think back to Ameet & Jaskaran’s amazing wedding. They are such beautiful, fun and charming people. Their Sageet, Sikh wedding and Reception was filled with vibrant colors, incredible emotion and some of the funniest bridal party peeps we have ever had the pleasure of working with. A five minute of even the best highlight film would not justify for the many memorable moments we captured over three days. Here is Ameet & Jaskaran’s Sikh wedding film.

PS: My fav moment is when horse decided to run away with Jaskaran during baraat @03:58. I think even horse fell in love with Jaskaran and did not want him to get married.
