This is the Lovely Reema and Ashish! They are going to have a huge Indian wedding in Toronto, but they needed to make it official, before heading over to Canada. They decided that instead of just going to the court house, they still wanted this to be something special, so they invited a few family members, and asked me to come along and shoot this intimate moment over in Central Park. I can't tell you how much fun I had shooting them, as they were really excited about having a photographer along to capture their story! Ashish was super funny, and had plenty of ideas of how to pose for his close up with Reema! You can tell they have been scouring the blogosphere for inspiration, and they definitely brought the good vibes, and a playful spirit! Much luck to them!
This lovely little reception party for Masha and Colin took place in St. Louis, Missouri! This was my first trip out there, and I have to say, it was a super lovely place! Colin was born and raised there, and Masha's family came in from far and wide, as much of her family are still in Russia or Spain! This was quite a meeting of the worlds, which funny enough, I learned that the 1904 world fair took place in St. Louis! How apropos! Since they have family in so many places, Colin's parents wanted to host a party for the newly weds in their hometown, as this couple made sure to have several parties from coast to coast, and finished up at a downtown loft in St. Louis with old and new friends! Cheers and congrats!
