4 wonderful events in one post – Monica & Veneet

It finally feels like the weekend just ended for me as we started off with an awesome wedding on Saturday, 3 shoots on Sunday and I literally let go of the camera an hour ago.  Fun part about my last shoot this evening was Gi and our baby got to join me as I worked.. so no missing my girls =)

So I’m back to updating our site as I’m currently in the back seat writing this while Gi is chauffeuring the family home.  So back to Monica & Veneet’s.. wedding events. What I loved the most about Monica and Veneet’s wedding was the fact that I got to capture all the traditional rituals that led up to their wedding day. So in this post you’ll see 4 different events that I got to capture – all of which are pretty cool… from watching the talented Shikha Bedi do her henna art to the religious ceremonies down to watching my friends Monica and Veneet get smothered with yellow turmeric paste.  I won’t even try to explain the significance of each ritual, but the bottom line for me is I love seeing and capturing these traditional aspects each time.  Here are a handful of pics from 4 events as we’re editing like mad monkeys in the studio.

A Sporty Lifestyle Engagement Session // Monica & Veneet

So I’m double posting tonight and wanted to share Monica and Veneet’s awesome lifestyle session. So leading up to this session, I got to know Monica and Veneet through various events I captured. I also got to know this couple from many discussions about their wedding… which I can’t believe is going to be this weekend. Talk how times flies.

This session was a fun shoot as the couple wanted to do this session in Markham since this will be where they are settling down when they get married. We decided to start off with Unionville Main street and then headed over to a nearby school to do this fun sporty themed shoot. For the shoot, these guys looked great and were naturals in front of the camera. I can honestly say, after they got out of their normal clothing and changed into their comfortable sports outfit… they were even more at home.

I’m excited for the next few days ahead and can’t wait for all the back to back shoots. T minus a few days guys. Thanks again.

Monica and Veneet’s Engagement

Monica & Veneet are a pretty awesome couple that you’ll be seeing many more special event pictures that leads to their wedding day in August. For their engagement celebration, we all met up a little earlier at one of my favorite locations that I’ve been itching to use for pics – and they happen to be the lucky chosen couple.

After having some fun in front of the camera we headed over to JJ Swagat where their engagement celebration / Pooja took place. The ceremony was on the stage and they coupled it along with amazing food and entertainment from multiple dancers. It was great that I got a chance to capture this event as I got to meet both sides of the family and which means I will be seeing e familiar faces over the next coming months with all the events that we will be capturing.

I want to thank my insanely talent friend Shikha Bedi (Henna By Shikha) for recommending us and of course our new friends Monica & Veneet. You guys and your family rock for doing your best in having us capture every special event leading up to your wedding – thank you and we’re honoured. To start off, here are some pics from the engagement. See you guys soon.
