Zahra and Aleem really wanted me to photograph their wedding day last Saturday, but unfortunately, I was already booked. They loved the warmth in my photos which I was happy to hear because golden light is our signature style! As they had a multi-day Ismaili wedding, it was lucky that I was still available on their mehndi party day. They decided to combine their engagement session on the same day so we could capture their love.
It turned out that their Mehndi party was right next to the Aga Khan Museum Park in Toronto which made it perfect for us to go there for photos! I honestly love love love photographing here because of the amazing architecture, clean white spaces and the just pure beauty of the space. It is so so stunning and it makes for the most beautiful backdrop for photos. Aleem and Zahra was so much fun to photograph because they loved just being their playful happy selves together. It made my job so easy as I didn’t need to provide them with any guidance – they were just so excited to be getting married in the next couple of days!
Aleem’s family had actually flown from London for the wedding and so we captured some happy family snaps of them at the park as well. I absolutely loved the colours in their outfits which popped from the scene at the Ismaili Centre in Toronto. After capturing some of their engagement portraits, we headed over to their Mehndi party where their family blessed their marriage. It was such a fun day and I’m sure their wedding day was as much fun as their mehndi party and more.
