Sabin and Becca | Hyatt Hotel | Long Beach Wedding Photography

I came to the field of wedding photography through my work documenting various religious practices, and have always been fascinated by traditions and cultures outside of my own. Throughout my career, I’ve shot many different types of weddings, but this was the first Sikh wedding I’ve had had the opportunity to shoot. It was an amazing experience learning about the Sikh traditions, capturing the stunning moments and details of the day, and most of all, sharing all this with a couple who are truly beautiful people, inside and out.

Here is Becca, preparing for the ceremony.

I was thrilled to have Jeanette Sanchez second-shooting with me. Jeanette shot this great image of Becca’s henna and jewelry.

Meanwhile, Sabin was preparing for the ceremony in the guy’s room.

The Sikh holy book is called the Guru Granth Sahib, and it is around this book that the ceremony is conducted.

Becca’s bouquet was one of the most gorgeous arrangements I had ever seen.

Becca’s reception attire was even more ornate than her ceremony wear, and her transformation included completely different hair and make-up.

Sabin and Becca’s reception was an extravagant, and yet personal, affair, which including performances by dance troupes, emotional toasts from loved ones, endless food, dancing by nearly every guest in attendance, and even a special dance performance by Sabin and Becca.
