Iswarya’s Bharathanatya Arangetram – Armenian Youth Centre, Toronto

Hi guys,
We’re here today featuring another arangetram that we shot.  The student is Iswarya, disciple of Vasu Master, and her arangetram was performed in the Armenian Youth Centre in Toronto.  It was an eventful night filled with intricate movements and hand gestures.  An interesting piece was the Mayur Alarippu using the hand mudra Mauyram (as indicated in the dance’s title) to depict a dance of a peacock.  This dance was stunningly enhanced by Iswarya’s beautiful, rich costume (note the feather detailing along the side and the centre).


Hope you enjoyed the photos.  To check out our latest work, head over to our Facebook Fan Page – “like” our page to stay updated!

Be back soon,

Ohm Bridal Magazine – Fall 2012 Edition

We were SO stoked when the Ohm Wedding Magazine team approached us to do a 6 page spread in their premier edition!  The fact of even being considered to be part of a well-renowned print publication within a mere six months of starting up our business makes us feel so honoured that our photography is being well received by the public.  We shot a few different looks for Chandan Fashion and as it was our first crack at fashion photography, it was very exciting to shoot with experienced models (including Ahmed & Prasani who was the cover Model for the last Ohm & Jodi Magazines!)!  Make up and hair was done by the fabulous Kavita Suri – coordinating was done by Thadshiga Jeyaseelan of Dreamers Events.   We were pretty fortunate to work with such a focused but fun team!  Really looking into doing more fashion/beauty work.

Interestingly, we learned about the limitations of doing print photography for fashion businesses.  Of course the shots had to be portrait, and full bodied, but also the draping of sarees, the postures, the expressions used – every aspect of the photo was thought out down to the last detail.

BUT! We also took some extra shots for ourselves to enjoy.  We love them and hope you do too! 🙂

Niroshan & Renetha – “The Notebook” Engagement Session, Toronto

“The Notebook” -*sigh* one of the most romantic stories every told and beautiful movies ever made starring the most gorgeous couple that ever was (*tear*).

When Niroshan & Renetha came to us saying that they wanted to do an engagement shoot with “The Notebook” as the theme, I was thrilled as this has been on my list for a while now.  And how sweet is it that this was the first movie that they watched together about seven years ago?! ❤

Again, this was another couple who left their shoot in our hands – LOVE couples like these as it really lets us show off our creative sides! With a little bit of shopping at ModCloth and Jacob, some rummaging through the closet, and some generous friends, we were able to style and complete this shoot on a very low budget.  The scenes that we focused on were their first meet at the carnival (ending with their moonlight dance under the stars and conversation while laying on the street), their summer dates with ice cream on the promenade, and a more serious and emotional tone at the abandoned site where their love grew.

 

Details were great with popcorn, cotton candy, ice cream, and of course, the stack of Noah’s… errr I mean Niroshan’s letters that were hidden away for years!  We are so happy with how these images turned out! I’m a bigger fan of “A Walk to Remember” myself; Annuj has always voted for “The Notebook” – but at least we both agree that “The Notebook” makes for better inspiration for an engagement shoot – lol!  Hope you enjoy some of our favourites!   Feel free to “Pin” them on Pinterest! 🙂

Sunny & Monica – Engagement Ceremony, Toronto

Hi guys!

On the September long weekend we were lucky to capture Sunny & Monica’s engagement ceremony.  Their event was filled with traditional aspects from their culture including (re)beautifying the new bride-to-be.  We hope you enjoy some of our favourites from their ceremony.  Monica came in a beautiful designer lehengha and we loved her hair style of a traditional braid filled with voluminous curls – such a classy touch!  Feel free to Pin ones you like on your inspiration boards on Pinterest!
