destination wedding

Iceland Adventure Session, Part I

This past May I flew with two wanderlusting Torontonians to Iceland for an epic Icelandic adventurous engagement session. I only had 30 hours to explore the island with them before heading back to Toronto, so we took full advantage of our limited time together and took in as much as we could from one of the most breathtaking places on our planet. 

One of my favourite parts about photographing people abroad and in unfamiliar locations, is the opportunity it affords to connect with people in a deeper, more meaningful way. By taking myself outside of my comfort zone and into situations or experiences that I don't normally encounter, I'm able to learn a tremendous amount about others (and a lot about myself too!). The lessons I learn from travelling are invaluable. Grateful to these two lovers - thank you for inviting me, inspiring me and trusting me to create work from my heart to yours. I loved spending quality time together and getting to know you both. I'll cherish our memories together for a long time xx

This is part i of their destination engagement session, part ii coming soon!

Magical wedding at Tijara Fort Palace, India

What I loved most about Padmini & Alex's wedding was how epically Canadian their love story is. Two people who grew up in entirely different worlds, met and fell in love in Toronto. Their wedding celebrations were steeped with Chinese customs & Indian traditions with Tamil elements. And their guests?! It seemed as though people from all corners of the globe flew in to celebrate with these two amazing humans. It was a beautiful display of diversity and it made my heart absolutely swoon.  

They started by having a civil ceremony and Chinese tea ceremony in Toronto. The second part of their wedding adventure took place a month and a half after that, at Tijara Fort Palace in India - a place so magical you'll believe you're dreaming. Situated on top of a mountain and surrounded by fields of mustard, it was the perfect setting for Padmini & Alex's magical wedding. Though their wedding in India was a three day visually-rich affair that included a gorgeous reception at Gymkhana Country Club in Delhi, here are the highlights from Tijara Fort Palace!
