{Holding Hands}

It’s sweet, cute, and so girly! 🙂

{Flying Kisses}

What bride doesn’t want her besties love on her special day?!

{How Long You’ve Known The Bride}

Sometimes people do a variation of this, on How You Know The Bride/Where You Met.
This pose adds a nice accessory and dimension to the photo. While it looks simple this shot took a bit of coordination
to make the signs, arrange the seating, and ensure no one holds the sign too high/low/covers their face.

{Huddle Around the Bride}

Straightforward, fun, and sweet photo to have in your wedding album. And there are lots of ways to set this up.

Sanika had the bridesmaids lehengas made in India. With the help of dear friends in India and technology (Whats App) they found the lehengas, got them made and brought to the US. Best of all, only ONE person needed additional alterations after the lehengas arrived.

{Robe Photos}

These haven’t been as popular amongst South Asians in the past – probably due to our conservative culture.
But we’re seeing them more because they’re cute. And matching robes make a great gift!
