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!

Shiraine & Raymond – Buddhist Wedding & Reception – Toronto, Canada

Hi folks!

Here is the follow up to Shiraine & Raymond’s Hindu Ceremony. Their Buddhist ceremony was the following Sunday. We started off the day with a bridal party photoshoot at Guildwood Park. But just before that we did a quick first look outside of their hotel. As you can see, Raymond can truly appreciate how beautiful Shiraine looked that day. After the bridal party shoot was completed Shiraine had left to the salon to get re-dolled up for her Buddhist wedding. Adorned in a stunning white and gold dye cut saree, Shiraine walked down the aisle on traditional Sinhalese fashion accompanied by dancers and drummers. The ceremony is a very familial event including much involvement from the parents and dropping betel leaves to honour past ancestors. Directly following the Buddhist ceremony was a cocktail hour for the guests and then the reception. Ray and Shiraine entered with their bridal party and right into a choreographed number! With some loving words, good food, and non-stop dancing. Everyone was in for a good night!

Hope you enjoy some of our faves 🙂

Mathan & Nirossa – Hindu Wedding – Toronto, Canada

Hello friends!

We’re here today with the beautiful and emotional wedding of Mathan and Nirossa.  I think with Mathan and Nirossa, it’s hard to not be filled with emotion – whether it is the happiness of the celebration, the bittersweet sadness that Nirossa will be moving from her native Germany to Canada, or the pure love they have for each other… they are a passionate pair.

The got married on a stellar day in the beautiful Swaminarayan Temple (BAPS Temple) in Etobicoke.  Surrounded by their nearest and dearest, they were united through a traditional Brahmin ceremony.  One of the best weddings we shot that day because they are such a wonderful pair.  Down-to-earth, calm, happy, and kind – these are the clients we live to photograph.  It also doesn’t hurt that they are a hot pair as well!  🙂  We’re sure that Kowsi from Beauty Creation had no problems dolling up Nirossa!

From Mathan majestically awaiting his bride, to Nirossa’s tears as she is greeted by her father, to laughter with the groomsmen, to their saree-flying shot at the end – this is one of our favourite weddings to date.  Enjoy 🙂

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!

Niroj & Abi – Toronto Catholic Wedding

Hello all,

We are so excited to bring you today’s wedding of two very special people. If you aren’t already well acquainted with Abi & Niroj, you can catch their football themed engagement shoot here and their classic engagement shoot here.

Their Catholic ceremony took place on a very sunny Saturday afternoon in July. One detail to note was their aisle! They framed photos of themselves from young to old and put it at the end of each pew. As they walked down the aisle, their history accompanied them to where they are today – how thoughtful!

After a lovely ceremony, we headed over to their planned location for their bridal party shoot. This place was completely rammed with people. We decided to leave and went to an abandoned barn for their bridal party photo shoot. Little did we know how perfect this mishap of events would be.

Their reception was held at the newly opened Markham Convention Centre. The Perfect Setting provided the decor for the event and they provided just that – a perfect setting. The whole hall was oozing of rustic elegance. Tree stumps, bird cages, mason jars and candles. Soft browns, pale pinks with golds and whites made this into an unbelievably delicate stage. To complement Abi’s lace A-line gown and pearl jewelry, the centerpiece jars were wrapped in white lace and the mouths of the jars were lined with strands of pearls. We couldn’t get over how utterly beautiful their reception was.

But remember that a wedding is a two-person affair which means that Niroj had to incorporate himself into the picture as well. And anyone who knows Niroj knows that if there’s one thing he’s passionate about – it’s football (hence, their themed engagement shoot). So his personality shone through with football team table numbers, a football crashing into their wedding cake AND a football inspired couple entrance. For traditional portion of the reception including blessings from elders and garland exchange as well, Abi changed into a beautiful designer saree. This royal blue lehengha styled piece had a huge and beautiful silver border. With an energetic MC, short (but sweet) speeches from loved ones, video complications from friends, and a dance from the bridal party (including the couple themselves), the reception was a big hit.

We hope you love their wedding as much as we do.
