Sesha has been photographing weddings since 1998. She has so many favorite things from photographing weddings that she can’t pick just one: the bride’s mom helping her daughter get her wedding dress on, the first time a groom sees the bride and he tries to hold back tears. Or that moment when a bride takes a deep breath, and the doors are opened before her and her dad and they take that first step in the procession. When the vows are exchanged and the couple can hardly believe they’re really standing there.
Sesha currently lives in Fort Worth, Texas (but her heart will always be in Springfield, Missouri!) with her husband and answered prayer, Nick. Sesha loves Nick’s Christ-likeness, patience and leadership. “I prayed for him for 15 years and while I had times of doubt that God was even hearing me, I’ll always be grateful that he heard those small and big requests that I had and chose to give me Nick.” Sesha & Nick have a 17-year-old daughter that they adopted in January of 2019, and they often host foreign exchange students from around the world.
Several things compose Sesha’s bucket list, including “Traveling to Bhutan, paying for someone’s college education, and finally telling Matthew Perry from Friends what I was supposed to back in 1999 (Insert one of my most embarrassing moments in front of a celebrity).”
Sesha has several great memories from her wedding. “Man oh man, what a fun day! Being in the ER the morning of and giving decorating instructions, seeing my hubs for the first time and just being in awe of God’s kindness to bring us together, holding back tears and laughing through my vows, sharing a look with my BFFs during the ceremony, and my mom’s hugs throughout the day. Oh I can’t forget the great sparkler explosion of 2011!!”
Sesha’s advice for couples on their wedding day is to “take deep breaths and keep it simple. So many times I see couples get carried away with crazy big weddings, but so many of them don’t remember their day or the bride is on the verge of a breakdown before she gets her wedding dress on.”
