Being a wedding photographer has afforded me so many opportunities to see and experience love in more ways than I ever thought possible. It’s a gift that I never take for granted. Each couple that entrusts us with their special day and memories, impacts our lives just as much as our work impacts theirs.

The connection I felt with Jessica over the phone was instant. I knew in my heart that I wanted to document her and Ujwal’s wedding day. What I never dreamt of, was that we would be documenting Ujwal’s surprise proposal as well!

Jessica had booked her wedding venue and photographer before Ujwal had the opportunity to “officially” propose. So as they prepared for their engagement session with us, Ujwal saw a wonderful opportunity. He emailed us privately and let us know of his intentions- to propose to Jessica during their session, with a violinist playing Game of Thrones theme song (one of their favorite t.v. series) in the background.

Talk about one of the most romantic and sweetest proposals! It was such a honor to document this unforgettable time for Ujwal and Jessica. Admittedly, I couldn’t stop a few tears from streaming down my face while I clicked away.

We are so thankful to have been a part of their proposal. Khaled and I are looking forward to continuing to document Ujwal and Jessica’s love story with their wedding weekend later this year. It will be a beautiful fusion of the Chinese and Indian cultures- filled with laughter, love, and family.
