On a lovely sunny day I met Sapna and her cute family at Redwood Park in Surrey for a family photo session. Redwood Park is one my favourite spots for a family shoot. Not only do you get the beauty of the trees but there is also a lovely treehouse, a playground and an enchanted fairy land that's perfect for kids.
The little six month old was so charming and he smiled the WHOLE TIME! He was so easy to photography and as you can see that made for a really fun photo session ❤
From the moment we met Kris & Tay we could tell how much love these two have for each other and how happy they made each other feel, and their wedding at the Vancouver Golf Club in Coquitlam was no different. It was fun, cheerful, and you can tell that there was lots of thought and planing put into it. The two smiled ear to ear all day long and what made it even better is the beautiful fall colours that provided a wonderful backdrop to this gorgeous autumn wedding. Congrats Kris and Taylor, thanks so much for sharing your day with us and we wish you all the best as you embark on your new adventure ❤
Alex and Daniel got married at one of the most beautiful venues we've ever seen, the Chilliwack Riverfront Sanctuary, about an hour and a bit away from Vancouver. From the gorgeous forest serenaded by the rushing Chilliwack River and surrounding landscapes to the intimate setting and the lovely details, this chic forest wedding was a real treat to shoot and we loved every minute of it! Congratulations to the lovely bride and groom ❤
Steveston village was the perfect backdrop for this lovely couple's e-session. We started early in the morning where Baraa & Sinan walked around this historical and magical gem and I'm not sure if it was the warm morning breeze or the smell of fresh coffee that got us giggling throughout the session. Balloons, bubbles and bright skies added to the fun of it all and by the end we were all tired form laughing so much and ended with a cup of tea and snacks at Blenz coffee. A perfect way to end the session ❤
From a beautiful Mehndi ceremony & a playful Pithi evening to an elegant Nikkah ceremony, Benish & Imran's wedding was full of great moments and lovely surprises.
We had the pleasure of spending two days with the lovely couple and their family, some of whom travelled from as far as Minnesota, Florida, Los Angeles, Wisconsin, Toronto, and India, so it was very important for them that we capture as many moments as possible.
The first day began at Elk's Lodge in Port Coquitlam where the bride was adorned with beautiful Henna on both her hands and feet. The rest of the family followed and it was a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know everyone.
Later in the evening was the Pithi ceremony which entails rubbing the bride and the groom with a paste made of chickpea flour, turmeric and other ingredients. It's a celebration of love and happiness for the couple involved. The night ended with several great dance performances from family members.
The next day was the day of the Nikkah ceremony which was held at the Ismaili Centre in Burnaby. The bride and groom prepared themselves at two different locations but the groom picked the bride up after he negotiated with her bridesmaids (there were lots of negotiations throughout both days, most of which are very playful in nature.. pretty fun tradition for sure).
Our journey with the couple ended at the Ismaili centre where the marriage ceremony took place. The couple & their families glowed with happiness and there were a few other traditions that were performed at the centre, including a fun competition between the bride and groom all of which contributed to a wonderful wedding that we'll never forget. Congrats to you Benish and Imran and thanks so much for sharing your day with us ❤
What a week it's been! The sunshine in Greater Vancouver combined with the few remaining cherry blossoms makes for such a nice combo to photograph. Having a lovely model, who also happens to be a toddler, makes it even more precious! It's not easy, however, to get them to pose for you, but just like with everything, persistence works and here is one picture that truly captures the joys of childhood. Happy Spring ❤
On a beautiful sunny Saturday I met up with our good friends K & D and their adorable little girl little R. who was a pleasure to work with. We had a wonderful maternity session. Maternity sessions are one of my favorites to shoot, the mom-to-be has that warm glowing aura that permeates through the camera lens and translates so well in pictures. Thanks for the lovely chat, good times and can't wait to meet you sweet bundle of joy ❤❤❤
Meeting someone as sweet as miss N. is always a treat and it makes for a wonderful photo session. No rain or wind were gonna stop us, especially with all the beautiful views in White Rock Beach. Sometimes it's actually easier to work with overcast conditions when it comes to lighting and the results were fantastic! Thanks so much miss N. for the lovely time :)
I couldn't get enough of photographing miss F., not only because she's my younger sister but also because she was a delight to be around on our shoot day in White rock. She needed some headshots and of course as her sister I couldn't say no. It wasn't only fun but it was a lovely sister-sister bonding time ❤
