Teasers - Sonia and Shamsher

A first for Dani Leigh Photography...Today I got to photograph a traditional Sikh wedding ceremony. The reception is tomorrow but I wanted to make sure I got a few up to share with everyone. I learned a lot and will be explaining everything I have photographed within the next few days.

In the meantime, enjoy!

And this one!

The last part of the day is very emotional. The bride leaves her home in clothing that her in-laws provide and her family and friends bid her a tearful farewell as she departs for her new home and life.

So many more to come! Can't wait for tomorrow!

Dani, these are gorgeous! All the colors...I love them. I hope everything is going great today at the reception. I'm so incredibly bummed I had to miss this one. :(
