Bhumika’s Mehndi night was the first a few events that we had the pleasure of photographing down in Costa Mesa for Bhumika and Nirav’s wedding. Neha Assar did Buimika’s mehndi and she did a phenomenal job.
I loved how Bhumika was so comfortable in front of the camera. She listened to all of our ideas and got a ton of great shots because of it. She was up for anything and took any suggestion we had and gave it a shot. It was so much fun we stayed longer than we were supposed to since we were having such a great time!
We love photographing Mehndi because of how beautiful and intricate it is. The process of photographing another artist is really rewarding as well. Meeting other creatives is a huge plus and we get so excited to work with new people in new places. It is also an opportunity for us to just hang out with the bride and chat with anything and everything. The rest of the events are usually so busy that we don’t get that time to talk as much.
When you connect with your subjects early on it makes the rest of the wedding events that much easier. Getting the trust of your subjects in the first day is a very important step in becoming a successful Indian wedding photographer.
Enjoy just a few of our favorite shots of this beautiful Mehndi and come back to see new work often!
