This Real Wedding couple was married in Laguna Hills, California (Orange County). When they met they both say it was love at first sight. For his proposal, Nilesh took Ashmita on a hike in his home country, New Zealand (in the snow) and had a helicopter fly them up to the top of a mountain where he surprise her. Very romantic. I Love It.
As I photographed both Nilesh and Ashmita for their engagement and wedding, I have learned that they both have an amazing aura around them. It is contagious and you can’t help but admire the love they have for one another. Nilesh is a classic gentleman with old school manners. It wouldn't surprise me, if he were to throw his jacket over a puddle-of-water for Ashmita to step over. Both were a joy to work with and made my experience with them a true honor.
