Anu & Goby – Reception – London, England

Hey guys,

We’re back today with Anu and Goby for their reception. This was held at a beautiful estate in Hertfordshire called De Vere Hunton Park.

Anu wore a beautiful net saree and a gorgeous designer kundan set. We took some great couple photos around the estate during cocktail hour as the guests were entertained by a magician and were served scrumptious appetizers made by Freshco. The reception was filled with speeches – some that made us laugh (Pratik), some that made us cry (Jenni – even reducing the groom himself to tears), and some that made us awwwwww (Goby!).

Speaking of Goby’s speech – I don’t think we’ve ever received a more ringing endorsement in a speech. Most clients tend to say thank you to us during their final speech at their reception and we are so grateful for the fact that they are so appreciative of our work. Goby took it yet another step further. After all was said and done in his speech, he left the very last thank you for us! It was something like this “And I have to thank Annuj & Tanya. They came here from Canada as our photographers, but they are not only our photographers here, they are our guest, our family. They have been amazing to us this whole time and I am so glad we went with them.”

AND if that wasn’t enough, at the very end of the night, Goby wanted to get a shot of himself and all of his mates with some very fine cigars. As we are setting up for the shot, Goby walks out of the shot, faces the crowd of his friends and says a little something: “LISTEN! ALL OF YOU SHUT UP! LET ME TELL YOU RIGHT NOW… IF YOU DON’T GET ANNUJ & TANYA TO COME TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR WEDDING, YOUR MARRIAGE WILL BE CURSED FOR LIFE AND I WILL NOT BE COMING TO THE WEDDING!” – a very sweet and unbelievably hilarious vote of confidence!

Hope you enjoy these shots!

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!

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.

Purvee & Rajbir – Toronto Engagement Shoot

Hi all!
Today we come to you with an extremely cute engagement shoot!  Purvee was a friend of ours before we had even met each other.  Attending Ryerson University, she met Annuj through school and I met her through my brother who also went to Ryerson.  Purvee is a five foot two inch beauty – bursting with energy, positivity and happiness.  She came to us with so many ideas and props that she wanted to use for her shoot and we absolutely loved it!  Her fiance, Rajbir, towers over her, but is such a sweetie!  Hence the nickname “bear” – he really is like a teddy bear!  This was obvious inspiration for one of her props.  She wore a stunning anarkalli and paired it with some big hair; make up was done by another friend of ours, the ultra-talented Puja Suri of Kiss and Make Up!  We started off at the U of T downtown campus and went to Yorkville to end the shoot.  In between we grabbed some teppanyaki from Yakamoto and the conversation and questions brought up by Purvee kept me laughing the whole way through – she is just so cute!  Hope you enjoy some snaps from their engagement session!
Very excited to shoot their wedding ceremonies just weeks away!
Love and flowers and teddy bears!
Annuj and Tanya
