Barkha & Ankit – Indian Wedding in New York

When Barkha is your bride, the pictures are guaranteed to be unique and special. Her expressive eyes, the proud calm of her smile and her chiselled movements made her a ravishing beauty.

Like Barkha said: “The beauty behind this, and almost everything at my wedding was a deep creative expression involved in every step of the way.”

I am really honoured to have photographed this wedding on behalf of Recall Pictures and to be part of the massive five-day celebrations and adventures we had together. Kudos to the entire team for being so encouraging and supportive.

Our bride Barkha Patel is a a renowned Kathak dance artist in New York. While, her passion and inherent talent for the art is inexplicable, it was our dashing groom who left us awestruck with his surprise performances. This couple would be any photographers’ dream clients—they were expressive, gracious, talented, appreciative and most importantly, deeply in love.

We were warmly welcomed to the Patel family and home, right in the middle of anticipation-filled preparations. Little did we know, we were delving into the world of dance, culture, creativity and much more…

This wedding helped us score the Wedding Sutra Award for the Best Bridal Portrait. The credit goes to the Recall Pictures team as well as to our bride who kept us on our toes and inspired us to create beautiful images. It’s her passion and dedication to make every detail in her wedding perfect. In fact, the outfits worn by the bride and groom for every event were carefully chosen and custom-designed by Barkha and her mother.

It was quite a tedious task to select our favourites from this magnificent wedding, but here are a few.
