Hopefully, you have all had a chance to pop over to Facebook this morning to take our quiz to help you define your South Asian bridal style. If you are a fusion bride, you are in luck.  This afternoons feature was written especially for you.

So, you might be wondering who is responsible for these magnificent shots.  Well, the lady behind the lens is Anna Kuperberg.  Anna is based out of San Francisco {yeah!} and her photography style hits all my hot buttons – lighting, distinct camera angles, and emotional moments that are never, ever staged. She has an artistic eye and I am blown away by her attention to detail. 

Stay tuned tomorrow for more shots from Parul and Jeff’s fusion wedding you won’t want to miss. In the mean time, head over to R A N I S, and check out who is the secret guest blogger we have over there today!
