Ruchey and Sean’s Indian Wedding at The Ritz-Carlton South Beach

Posted on June 20, 2010


Actually, Ruchey and Sean had a multi-faith wedding, but there was a strong Indian influence as you will see in these photos.


For their Ritz-Carlton South Beach wedding, Ruchey wanted to incorporate elements from both a traditional Hindu wedding as well as a more Westernized approach. Thus, the mandap was very traditional and the reception had more of a “springtime bling” feeling.


The Mehendhi ceremony took place in a former restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton and included a dhol player as well as a DJ. Mehendi art was provided by hennaparty.com.










The most interesting, and perhaps challenging aspect of the wedding was the food. The bride and groom had a special tasting at the hotel, however, the Ritz-Carlton ended up going the extra mile and flying in an Indian chef from the Ritz-Carlton Atlanta who was really able to master creating the Indian cuisine that Ruchey and Sean were looking for at the Mehendhi. The food served on the actual wedding day was more traditional Western fare, but with a dessert overload that included cheesecake lollipops, mini crème brulees petite fours and more!


There were quite a few other surprises at this wedding including both a horse and a bagpiper and I had a terrific time photographing all the festivities. Indian Weddings in South Florida can be so colorful – and this one was one of the most fun as well. Many thanks to Ruchey & Sean!!!

Tess from E! Entertainment's "Pretty Wild"

Posted on June 7, 2010


A few months ago we were contacted to do a photo shoot for the show Pretty Wild on E! Entertainment. I was the photographer in an episode in which one of the girls does a Palm Beach photo shoot for swimsuit designer designer Susan Holmes. This shoot brought back memories of the days when I used to shoot for Playboy! We had lots of fun during this Palm Beach photo shoot, shooting in several locations including the Omphoy Hotel and a private yacht. We weren’t allowed to post any of these images until the show actually aired on E!. Here is just a glimpse of our work that day. Enjoy!!!
