SHANNON + SEEMA | INDIAN LESBIAN WEDDING | LOS ANGELES, CA.

I have been anticipating this wedding for years now! Shannon and Seema are special to me and I am honored that they chose me to be their wedding photographer. I flew into Los Angeles a few hours before the wedding festivities began. I was greeted by a house full of friends, family and a lot of laughter. It was going to be an exciting day. Beautiful Indian culture, stunning brides & style for miles! Couldn’t ask for more. I have photographed Indian weddings before and I have photographed gay and lesbian weddings before, but never have I ever shot an Indian lesbian wedding. WOW. My heart! There was so much love that consumed the SmogShoppe that evening. Friends and family came pouring in with smiles, hugs and tears… these two are clearly loved and in love. I am writing this blog a month after the wedding and I am proud to say that so much progress has been made in our country with the Supreme Court striking down DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) and Prop 8 in California! Love wins. ALWAYS. Congrats Shannon & Seema. Love you guys! UPDATE: For every LGBT wedding I book in 2014 I have decided to donate a portion to the Trevor Project. READ MORE HERE! Spread the love and get involved in something bigger than yourself.

Interested in having me capture your love story too? Send a message with details: HERE.

    Only one suggestion: i think it should be titled Beautiful Love Marriage, not Indian Lesbian wedding. I say this only because it should be the love that draws comment. What your orientation is that led you to this beautiful moment should be irrelevant. Also it reads as an oddity and shouldn’t be so. Thanks for sharing your special moments. Incredibly moving to see so much honest love.

    This brought tears to my eyes. This is so beautiful. I am an Indian lesbian and have always dreamed of having the same kind of wedding. Everything that happened in this wedding has been exactly what I have dreamed to happen in my wedding. Especially, the part where I marry a woman out of my culture. After seeing this I can say that my dream one day will surely come true. Thank you Seema and Shannon for keeping mine and probably millions of other girls dreams alive, especially, those who wish to marry a woman out of their culture. I wish both of you all the happiness and luck in this new journey of yours. 🙂

    It is amazing to see this. I hope the world slowly broadens its vision and accept such weddings with arms wide open. Hats off to the Indian parents of Seema. In india parents still freak out at the idea of mere inter-religion marriage while Seema’s parents accepter her sexuality and allowed her to choose a soulmate. This is amazing and beautiful. God bless the couple!

    This is beautiful. I’ve wanted a big, traditional Indian wedding since I was a little girl, and once I realized my sexuality, letting that wedding dream go was one of the saddest things. Your wedding is proof that it doesn’t have to be that way. What an amazing hybrid of cultures, traditions and style to celebrate your special day! I’m so impressed; both at how you incorporated an american and indian wedding into one, and that you had the balls to do it! I hope you two have a long, happy life together! xoxo

    This is beautiful beyond words. I am crying because it feels like i just saw a slideshow of my most heart wrenching dream come true! Shannon & Seema… Congrats to you both from the bottom of my soul! I am a complete stranger that is in awe of the love you have for one another and the commitment you’ve decided to make to each other. You are both beautiful, brave and blessed. I wish you both a lifetime of joy! I feel so goddamn fortunate and grateful to have stumbled upon this page today. Steph, you are an amazing photographer! You can feeel the love emanating from each shot.
    Is there any way to get in touch with the brides? I’m an Indian lesbian living in a country where homosexuality is criminalized. I came out recently to my parents only to be told that I “must” get married to a boy… so i almost gave up on my own happiness. After seeing this, I realize just how much it’s worth. I’m working on a novel actually and I’m collecting stories of Indian lesbians like myself because i think it has the power to dramatically impact the live of an Indian girl somewhere in the world that is too afraid to follow her heart. I would love to hear Shannon and Seema’s story.

    I don’t think I’ve ever posted a comment ever on any site before this. I feel rather stupid even posting this since I don’t know these people from adam. But, as an Indian woman this made my heart so so happy. I loved how they carried out all the little traditions. I loved that they fed each other a cupcake (for shannon) and a laddoo (for seema). They thought of it all…Kudos and God bless you both. And, yeah to to all supportive family members on both sides who truly reveled in the celebration.

    @Rishabh: Hinduism does not say anything against homosexuality, and any homophobia that exists in Indian society is cultural and relatively new (slowly inculcated over 200 years). A lot of Hindu royals practiced it openly in the past, and Hinduism has a lot of LGBT themes in its mythology.

    Seeing these pictures makes me so happy! Steph Grant you are a very talented photographer and you have captured the love and happiness better than anything I’ve ever seen! I may get your for my wedding! (Let me find a man first.) The brides are incredibly stunning, and Seema especially seems to have such incredibly vibrant energy – what a doll!

    Were the guests crying? It looked like that in a couple pictures.

    Congratulations to the new couple and may they have a long, prosperous, healthy and happy life together. This wedding gives me hope for our society.

    My daughter owner of PoshPenny.com is a photographer and is getting ready for a September wedding. She would be amazed at how beautiful these photographs are. The only thing I did not see, or maybe I missed it was the traditional kiss. Perhaps that is not part of their custom.
    Either way great job.

I think it would be a good thing to offer India- inspired wedding clothes to boutiques here in the states as an alternative choice in wedding attire. And the jewelry was so stunning!! Also loved the inked designs on the hands and feet. You simply wowed me with your beautiful choices.

    These Indian weddings are really something to savor for a lifetime. An Indian marriage ceremony is elaborate, full of rituals and customary celebrations that it is a sight to behold. Actually it looks like the couples are representing Gods and Goddesses in all their glory and a religious function is underway.

    Really the richness of Indian culture is what enamored west so passionately. Sadly, the spirituality and grandeur of such a rich legacy seems to be lost in the tragic stories emanating from that country.

    Congratulations, and best wishes for a happy and healthy marriage. I am inspired…I’m currently going through a rough time with my life and questioning the sanctity of relationships. But…if you two can find peace with each other and love one another, then why can’t I?

    This was some of the most enthralling and engaging wedding photography I have seen. Nice work, Steph Grant!
