Hi, my beautiful friends! I'm Meera. I specialize in making truthful and joyous wedding experiences accessible to couples that are searching for something deeper than the surface. I especially serve couples with multi-faceted identities, complex stories or old emotional wounds to carry. In a world of social media and ‘perfection’, we’re daring to keep it real. That’s why, in the year leading to your wedding, I walk by your side, helping you turn inwards to excavate what really matters most to you, and helping you craft an experience that invites every piece of who you are to be present on your wedding day.
…and then I capture that story with my camera.
From this moment on, you’re not alone.Whether you're grappling with how to honor your queer or multicultural identities, managing health struggles, navigating complicated family dynamics, discovering unexpected grief, or simply looking for permission to stay true to yourselves in the midst of all the noise...I'm here to anchor and guide you. Combining emotional advocacy and photography, I promise a hands-on, multi-month experience that will deepen your connection and transform your wedding day…and documentary imagery that centers your identity, community, emotions and the beauty of all that you are.
Sunny and Nick love their communities, they love the earth, they love being huge nerds, they love extending kindness to humans and animals, and they love each other. They’re best friends and more. That’s why they decided to have a big, multicultural wedding featuring all their loved ones glamping in the cabins at Cama Beach State Park, on beautiful Camano Island just outside Seattle. Beginning with a morning South Indian Vedic (Hindu) Ceremony, leading to afternoon chai and cake, then off to an evening Vow ceremony, and ending with dancing led by that ever-so-infamous DJ Spotify (and a lovely friend that made sure things ran smoothly on the playlist).
My favorite thing about multicultural, multi-ceremony weddings is the way that communities come together in a genuinely tangible way, the ways that pieces of my couples’ identities are highlighted throughout the day in different ways, and the threads that run through all of it. And I’m of South Indian descent, so when I get to document Indian ceremonies, I also take particular joy in getting to share in the traditions that are so very, very familiar to me. Eliot gets nostalgic, too.
