harper's Bazaar Bride


Punjab is a north Indian state with vibrant culture and people. And Punjaban is a woman from Punjab. For quite some time I wanted to do a shoot with a Punjabi theme.  Recently my friend and model Navi Sandhu posted a gorgeous picture with a Punjabi outfit which I loved. I immediately asked her if she would like to collaborate on the shoot  I have been envisioning.  This is how this one came to realization.

And what a great model she is. In addition to carrying those outfits elegantly , she also knows how to dominate the camera. Thank you Lilly Kaur for a great job on Make up and Hair .

The Shoot at the Testarossa Winery, Los Gatos

You are as good as your team ! 

This proverb could not have been more true. The shoot at Testarossa Winery in Los Gatos was a great teamwork . Its not very common that for an onsite shoot everything falls in place perfectly. The staff at the winery was super friendly and provided all the support we needed. Our gorgeous models, Lena and Sukhpreet, carried the outfits with elegance and style.  SARA Design Studio by Rashi provided stunning bridal outfits and accessories to go with it. Lilly's Beauty World made sure the models looked their best with make up and hair. I was there with my third eye, my camera, and assisted by Avni Bid, to capture the moments. 

It is an inspirational shoot primarily for Indian Brides. The historic Testarossa Winery provides a picture perfect place and a great ambiance for hosting all kinds of weddings, including Indian Weddings. It is just minutes away from Silicon valley. 

The shoot was on a weekday evening and many guests were still there for wine tasting. We made our best effort not to disrupt the normal business. Our models and their outfits looked so stunning that many guests stopped by, watched the shoot and complimented our models.
