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!

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.

Mahdi & Janice – High Park Engagement Shoot

Hey guys,
Today we’ve got Mahdi and Janice. We met Mahdi a few years ago through my (Tanya’s) brother and he’s such a great guy! How appropriate that he found himself a great girl!  We started off their engagement shoot at High Park and worked our way to a Pickering beach.  Some swans, a stalled car, and some pizza later, we’ve ended up with some very sweet shots.

Niroj & Abi – Toronto Engagement Shoot

Hey WordPress, 
 
Abi and Niroj are no strangers to you guys based on your response to their football themed shoot. Today they’re back with one of our classic shoots. Abi wanted to get a beautiful venue with a lot of different rooms and old furniture – very Victorian style.  I scavenged online and found the stunning Graydon Manor for them. Abi booked a permit and we were set!  
 
For their second location we headed over to Haute Couture central in Toronto – Yorkville. While going through here Abiand Niroj constantly had an audience – people complimenting how beautiful a couple they are and how gorgeous Abi’s dress was – many even stopped to take photos of them as we were shooting [a word of advice to the general public: before lifting your camera/smart device / tablet to take a photo of a couple you don’t know (why you would want this is another conversation on its own), have the courtesy to ask them first.]
 
Contrasting to their fun filled football themed shoot, Abi wanted this to be more classy and fashion inspired. We feel their photos here are timeless, romantic, and full of style and emotion. Enjoy.
