Manos & Vino – Fall Engagement Shoot – Toronto, Canada

Hello there!

Fall! Trees filled with leaves, the beautiful colours, and a briskness in the air! But aside from that, there is so much more that remind us of fall – hay rides, cornfields, and pumpkins! Vino and Manos wanted to take the path less taken for their fall shoot so we headed to a VERY crowded Whittamore Farms a few weeks before Halloween. Scattered everywhere were teens looking to get lost in cornfields and family days with tots testing out their halloween costumes. We surprisingly found ways to make their shoot feel so personal, secluded and as if they were the only ones there (seriously, it was packed). Manos and Vino are GREAT in front of the camera. They are always fun and happy and they definitely know how to strike a pose. Enjoy!

Mayu & Charan – Fall Engagement Session – Toronto, Canada

Hi all,

We are back with one of your all-time favourite couples. When we posted Mayu & Charan’s San Francisco engagement shoot, we were flooded with comments about how beautiful this couple is and how amazing their shoot turned out. One of the most common comments were, “I wish I was friends with them”, “I feel like I know them”, and “I wish I could hang out with them”. These are all pretty valid comments – as friends of Charan & Mayu’s, we can assure you that these comments are not unfounded. They are kind, fun, loving, genuine people and we are so fortunate that our paths crossed the way they did. Yes, you do want to hang out with them and be friends with them. No lie – you really do. And if you don’t, you should.  Lol.

Now onto their new shoot! Even way back when planning our international sessions a year ago, Mayu expressed her desire to have a more classic shoot in the fall consisting of two things – their “nai kutties” (aka puppies), and a recreation of Charan’s whimsical proposal to Mayu.  We started off at the park/forest that they usually walk their doggies, Mason and Lebron (from here on out referred to as “Lebbie”). You grab their personalities instantly – Mason is the sweetheart and Lebbie is the man in charge. We had our hands full making sure Lebbie didn’t get cold and Mason stayed out of the mud. But posers they were!

Now you will note from their San Francisco shoot that Mayu needs no assistance styling herself. She came perfectly dressed for fall fashion in a long sleeved plum sweater dress – aptly access prized with a gold body chain, knee highs, and brown leather boots (MUAH! *kisses hand to the air like a chef). Speaking of MUAH, Mayu was beautified by Anna of AK Makeup. Anna did a wonderful job with a neutral smokey eye and soft tousled hair. Anna is one of the few artists in Toronto that we can really attest to in not only professionalism but also perfection. Her hair and make up stay put WELL after a tired bride has gone through the rigorous motions of a wedding day, or even more strenuous, a shoot with Annuj & Tanya! LOL! Anna is truly an ARTIST – she doesn’t just DO make up and hair, she CREATES ART. But we digress…

For the second portion of their shoot – we headed over to Charan’s house and recreated the magical moment when Charan asked Mayu to marry him. There’s a long story behind the proposal but it basically involves how Mayuri has added music, light, love, happiness, bliss, and so much more into Charan’s life – and it ends with a beautiful Princess cut ring and a “YES!” 🙂

They toughed it out in unbelievably cold weather – Mayu gets extra props for doing it all in a saree, with a smile, and like a boss. We hope you enjoy their photos!

 

Can’t wait for the wedding! 3 months away, guys! ❤

Harsee & Davinder – Shagun Ceremony

Hey guys!

We’re here with Harsee and Davinder’s Shagun ceremony. On a rainy Saturday in September, we headed down to Pearl Banquet Hall for their engagement ceremony. With blessings, love, and applause surrounding them, Davinder entered the hall in his very own motorcycle and Harsee followed adorably with a scooter and some balloons. In a well fitted neon green anarkali, Harsee proves that she’s confident and beautiful enough to pull off a colour that most simply can’t. A fun filled night with great food, dancing, and even a celebrity speech? (Keep your eye out for famed Punjabi film celeb, Harbhajan Mann – uncle of our beautiful Harsee!)

Stunning is a word too often thrown around these days but Harsee and Davinder are truly a couple that make you stop in your tracks and stare in awe. Not only are they beautiful on the outside, but such humble, genuine people that we were so happy to be with on a special occasion.

Enjoy!

Looking forward to their wedding next fall!

Sandeep & Navneet – Brampton Engagement Shoot

Hey folks!

We’re here today with a very personalized shoot. Navneet and Sandeep met at their school bus stop back when they were 12. They lived on the same street, where they still live today! So wanting to show off their history – we went to their neighbourhood to capture their story, which goes a little something like this…

Once upon a time, there lived a boy named Sandeep.  Sandeep had just moved to the beautiful land of B-town. He was starting at a new school and that morning, he got dressed and headed over to the school bus stop. On his way there, he saw the most beautiful maiden in the land, Navneet, waiting at the stop. He knew that he had to talk to her, but didn’t know how to start a conversation. All of the excuses raced through his mind but he kept it simple. After a few moments of silence at the stop, he spoke. “Is that our bus?”, pointing at the bus as he inquired. A quick smile and nod from Navneet meant that he knew he got her. And got her he did. They fell in love and lived happily ever after!

Of course with a story like that we had to head over and shoot at their neighbourhood. After a few shots at their street sign we headed over to their local park for some fun. They brought water guns, bubbles and all of their best friends – they are surrounded by awesome people! Sandeep was always up for some danger; from climbing to scaling to jumping off of the swing, he was good to go! Check our Instagram feed to get some awesome behind the scenes footage of this shoot! @impressionsbyannuj

Navneet got a Vespa for the shoot and we did some high fashion shots by the water. We ended off the night with a romantic McDonalds dinner on the shore.

Looking forward to their second, themed engagement shoot coming up in the new year!

 

Now not only are they a great looking pair – but they are talented too!  Sandeep is one of two faces behind Everlasting Decor who provide couples with beautiful custom art for their events!  A few samples below but make sure to head over to their blog to see more of their work if you want something a little different for your special day!

Amanda & Adam – Toronto Catholic Wedding

Hey all,

We’re here today with Adam and Amanda’s wedding day. One thing that stood out for us was how there was no hustle and bustle, no rush rush rush. Everything happened at a great pace and everyone was calm. Everyone made it on time, the groom is handsome, the bride is beautiful, the priest was hilarious, and it was a lovely ceremony.

The down side was that it was raining. Hard. So we had to skip the beautiful outdoor location that they got a permit for and head over to Mississauga Convention Centre early for their bridal party photos. Which really wasn’t a problem – with the right eye almost everything can become a backdrop. 🙂

I (Tanya) was shooting with Adam in the morning and he is nothing but a gentleman. From constant “thank yous” and “pleases”, to asking me to sit down and have breakfast with him and his grandparents to even turning down the air conditioning in the hotel room before he came down for breakfast (because he “knew a ‘lady’ was going to be in the room soon and girls always seem to be cold”), he proved that what they say is true – a small town boy (from Penetanguishene, Ontario) knows how to treat a lady. And that was the consensus at the reception. Nothing but high praises from family, friends, and from Amanda herself for how lucky she was to find someone who always treats her right and knows exactly what to say. Adam’s speech showed the world that though Amanda is an independent, determined, successful young woman, she is also the perfect blend of city and town, who is not afraid to go on an adventure and get dirty. A match made in Heaven!

Shiraine & Raymond – Toronto Engagement Shoot

Hey all!
We’re here today with Shiraine and Raymond’s engagement shoot!  Starting off at Edwards Gardens, it was evident that love was in the air!  They frolicked through the forest, kissed atop of a waterfall, and read to each other!  (Side note: Forgetting to bring her own novel, Shiraine borrowed my current book at the time for these shots – “A Dog’s Purpose” is a must read!)
After the park we headed over to the Bluffs for some waterfront shots. We lucked out in that while we were shooting at the docks, a boat owner saw us and asked if we wanted to take a few shots at his boat. Yes, please! Hope you enjoy some shots from their engagement shoot!
Can’t wait to post their wedding photos!  If you enjoyed these photos make sure to check back into our Facebook Fan Page for more!  “LIKE” our page to stay updated with our work!

Amutha & Colin – Alice in Wonderland Themed Engagement Shoot

Hey WordPress World!
Today we’re here with a creative treat! Amutha and Colin are a fun and unique couple who wanted a themed shoot that involved colour, props and a lot of dress up. What better theme than Alice in Wonderland?! I created their look book with what I thought was a wish list because it was so exhaustive – but to my delightful surprise, Amutha and Colin managed to grab literally every item on my list!  They shared that both of their families were hoarders and with a quick trip to the dollar store (something I ALWAYS recommend as a first resort – you’d be surprised what you can find there!), they were set!
Since the Alice in Wonderland theme has been done before, I thought we could add a cultural twist and suggested to Amutha that she wear a saree or an anarkalli (keeping in mind that it would have to be, of course, the Alice baby blue) – she brought both! She was beautified by Nizani of Crown Beauty, who did a PERFECT job with Amutha’s look. Pairing blue smokey eyes with baby pink lips was the perfect cute-yet-alluring look I was looking for. You can check out more of this talented, young artist on her Facebook Fan Page here!
With the help of some great friends and family, we were able to set up their stage on one of the hottest days of the year. Their table was littered with antique clocks, flowers, tea sets (including the teacup and saucer of Amutha’s late grandmother – so touching!), hardcover books, and so much more!  They also found a pocket watch (actually two!) for the shoot which paired beautifully with our very own white rabbit!  Special thanks to Nizani for allowing us to use Thumper (as we had dubbed him) for the shoot – he was on his absolute best behavior for the full duration. 🙂
From high tea to croquet with flamingos to cards and roses and so much more wackiness, Amutha and Colin proved to be a fun and free couple. We hope you enjoy some of our favourites.
