Baldev & Deepika - Coventry England

Not only did I photograph Bal & Deepika’s pre wedding session in Oxford (located further down in my stories), I also captured their intimate registry marriage in Coventry!

Deepika isn’t just one of my brides, she is also my cousin aka my sister, best friend & my confidante so it was such a pleasure to photograph these sessions for her & for her husband. Their big fat Indian wedding is yet to come & I wont be photographing it as I will be a part of the celebrations! I CANNOT WAIT!!! :D

Georgia & Natalie - Purling Brook Falls, Springbrook QLD

Ever since Australia has approved same sex marriages, I have been waiting for a beautiful & kind hearted couple like Georgia & Natalie to pop up in my inbox & FINALLY I will be shooting my first same sex wedding in October!

These plant lovers, tree of life lovers, cat lovers, Harry Potter & Jurassic Park (which I am obsessed with too) lovers decided to have their pre wedding session at the beyond stunning Purling Brook Falls. I have been dying to shoot here for a while so another ‘FINALLY’ moment happened.

Bring on the wedding & only 10 weeks & 3 days to go ;)

The Thandi Family - Chesterton Windmill England

How CUTE is this little family!! I was looking for a picture perfect English countryside backdrop for the Thandi’s family session & when I came across this AHHMAZING wheat field, I instantly fell in LOVE. I think I may need to go back to the UK during the summer time. The weather is perfect + the sun sets really late… these images were taken at 8pm to 9:30pm!

Olivia & Vinny - London England

While London was asleep on an early Saturday morning, we were wandering around the beautiful city. Olivia & Vinny are from Brisbane Australia & currently working in England so it was such a pleasure to be able to capture their pre wedding session on the other side of the world!

“Just looked at them and oh my lordy they are amazing!! So glad we have these beautiful pics to remember our time in London”

Ashwin & Sunaina - Brisbane QLD

Where to even begin! Ashwin aka Avin & Sunaina had their big fat South Indian wedding in Brisbane Queensland. They got married in front of a room full of 400 family & friends + it was so BEAUTIFUL & here are 10 reasons why:

  1. I have known Sunaina & her lovely family for a few years now. I photographed her good friends weddings & her sisters wedding & they ALWAYS welcome me with open arms & make me feel like I am a part of the family

  2. The pre wedding events & the wedding day was full of so much joy, LOVE & colour!

  3. At Sunaina’s South Indian Bhatwaan night, she changed into about 15 outfits! We went inside, outside + up & down stairs so I got a good work out in hehe

  4. The wedding venue was completely transformed into something out of a fairy tale

  5. Seeing so many familiar faces in the crowd from my past couples, their family & friends from the Brisbane Hindu community

  6. Stealing of the shoes was one of the CRAZIEST I have seen

  7. The vadai (going away ceremony) was super emotional & I’m surprised that I didn’t start crying

  8. They came down to my home town (Murwillumbah NSW) for their wedding portraits! + they did so well dodging the alllll the cow S***

  9. It was another AHHMAZING Hindu wedding I have photographed!

  10. There are so many ways that I could describe Avin & Sunaina but the word that pops up straight away is ‘kindness’. THANK YOU for having me a long for the ride & for trusting me to capture your wedding story!!

THANK YOU to these incredible creatives for making it a good one -

Baldev & Deepika - Oxford, Oxfordshire England

I had the BESTEST time with Bal & Deepika at their pre wedding session in Oxford England! We didn’t have much of a plan; the only plan was just to walk around the city, stop & take photos in front of stunning backdrops & just to go with the flow. Isn’t that just the best kind of plan!?!

Their session was full of endless laughs, jokes & I’m sure their family & friends would agree that whenever they are around these two, there is never a dull moment #couplegoals

Thank you Bal & Deepika for this beyond amazing experience!

Cate & Toby - Cabarita Beach NSW

I think I have met Australian’s most relaxed bride & groom ever!… Meet Cate from Calgary Canada & Toby from Brisbane Australia. Their pre wedding session was so effortless & they really were naturals in front of the camera & if they were like this at their pre session then bring on the wedding!!

You must scroll down to their golden hour pics… I’m gushing over them!

Amit & Jasmina - Tallebudgera Creek & Currumbin Beach QLD

I had the best time with Amit & Jasmina at their pre wedding session & they really are one of the funniest couples I have gotten to know. Amit is from Texas USA & Jasmina is from Brisbane Australia & they crossed paths at a wedding in India… I think that is the definition of faith, right?

It’s such a blessing that I get to connect with & meet people from different parts of world & photograph their authentic & raw relationship… I think I really do have the best job!!

I cannot believe this is the first time I’m shooting at Tallebudgera Creek… just look at that crystal clear water!

Shay & Uppi - Mt Tamborine QLD

I came to the crowd seeking friends
I came to the crowd seeking love
I came to the crowd for understanding

I found you

I came to the crowd to weep
I came to the crowd to laugh

You dried my tears
You shared my happiness

I went from the crowd seeking you
I went from the crowd seeking me
I went from the crowd forever

You came, too

Abhik & Preeya - Brisbane QLD

There is only one word I can think of to describe this London couple’s wedding events & that is CRAZY!! In a good way of course hehe. The first time I spoke to Abhik & Preeya was at 5:30am via Whatsapp call & even though I had one eye open & the other close, we connected straight away & I just knew that they were going to be the most easy going, relaxed, beyond kind & a fun couple to work with… I was right & they made my job so much more easier! #idealcouplegoals

Their Gujarati wedding events kicked off with a few Pooja ceremonies, Pithi ceremony aka an EPIC haldi fight (this was the best haldi I have photographed & when you look at the images you will know why hehe), Sathak ceremony, Mehndi night then follow by their Garba night the next day & then wedding ceremony the day after that.

THANK YOU Abhik & Preeya for having me capture your crazy wedding story & THANK YOU for LOVING & appreciating my new, relaxed & unique style! I absolutely cannot wait till we cross paths again in the future & reminisce.

I hope you all LOVE their story just as much as I do!
