I didn’t have an opportunity to meet Jaskreet & Harjot before their wedding, but everything about what and who they chose to put on their lavish event was right up my alley. They flew in makeup a makeup artist from LA, and some of my favourite local vendors like Dress My Day, faBLOOMosity, and PinkPolka. With such an awesome team in place, I knew that we would have a fantastic day together.
Some photographers recommend couples an engagement session before the wedding in order to become comfortable with your photographer and to learn how they shoot. While I absolutely love shooting engagement portraits of my clients, I also definitely think that any wedding photographer should feel comfortable walking into a situation and being able to make beautiful images without having previously worked with the couple. Weddings are a whole different ball game as compared to a portrait shoot, and nowhere is that made more evident than a mulit-day Sikh wedding! I love the chaos, the colours, and all the family members. Most importantly, Jaskreet & Harjot trusted me and my team to accomplish everything we needed to, and we had an awesome day.
Thanks Bruce for shooting this with me (and RedBull and Starbucks 😉

On to Jaskreet & Harjot’s wedding! All of these images are from the same day – they opted to have their ceremony and reception back to back. It made for a long but very packed day!
