Rupa & Shawn – Fijian Wedding Photography

Rupa & Shawn – Fijian Wedding Photography
June 6, 2012 Haley Shandro

What can I say about Rupa & Shawn… Well, let me put it to you this way: it was the first wedding that I came out of with a nickname.  It’s too embarrassing to explain. I wrote on Rupa’s Facebook (and I meant it) that I’ve never said after a multi-day wedding that I wished I could have stayed for more of the reception, but I wished I could have stayed at theirs. I had so much fun over two days with Rupa, Shawn, their bridal party, and families, as well as the entire entourage of photographers and videographers (thanks Carla & Chrystal!) working hard at the wedding.

Rupa’s laugh is infectious.  And hearing speeches at the reception it was easy to understand that Shawn and Rupa are a team, getting married in their own time and on their own terms after many years of hard work.  They love each other to pieces. They are an incredible couple, and have wonderful parents to model their marriage after.

Please enjoy these images from Rupa & Shawn’s amazing wedding.

Rupa gets all of the credit for these shoes. She glued every last rhinestone onto the shoes herself.
