Upanayanam Photographer MN
Archana and her family hired me to capture photos of their son’s Upanayanam (Sacred Thread ceremony) at the Hindu Temple of Minnesota in Maple Grove. The day arrived and I was raring to go – I always love seeing the beauty and splendor of Hindu and Indian ceremonies! We started outdoors capturing photos of the family members that had assembled for the big day. Then afterward it was on to the big event inside the temple.
Hindu Temple Upanayanam Ceremony
The ceremony took place on the stage in the Temple under their beautifully designed mandap. There were flowers and brightly colored drapes everywhere. And seeing everyone’s beautiful saris and Indian dress was so much fun! My finger barely had time to rest as I captured the entire ceremony as well as the family and friends that had gathered to watch. And little Advaith was such a champ – he seemed to be having a great time, full of smiles and laughs as he kept up with the ceremonial events happening around him. A beautiful banana leaf lunch was served after the ceremony for family and friends to spend time together and celebrate the big day. The entire family stayed for the fun well into the evening.
Thank you, Mohan family, for working with me for Advaith’s Sacred Thread Ceremony. I had so much fun working with you at the big event, and I am thrilled that you love your photos!
If you’d like to work together for your child’s Sacred Thread Ceremony, give me a call or send me an email soon!
