Nisha & Raj have been such a pleasure getting to know, From the time we met them at the studio, shooting their fun engagement shoot at the Brickworks, seeing them so full of love on their hot summer wedding day, and the many times we’ve spoken with them since their big day!  We asked Nisha a few questions about the wedding day;

XD: “Where did you meet?”

Nisha: “Raj and I went to school together at the University of Toronto.  We used to see each other everywhere (library and gym) and had mutual friends that introduced us”

XD: “How did the proposal happen?”

Nisha: “He came to visit me when i was living in Boston and we went for a walk down the Esplanade.  We were having a “picnic” and he threw me for a loop by making me think he was unhappy about something in our relationship, when in fact  he was just trying to throw me off and not guess what he was up to (I am bad with surprises) he took out the ring and popped the question when I was least expecting it!”

XD: “What do you guys love to do together?”

Nisha: “Relax and watch movies, and then go for a walk when we watch too many movies and need to get outside!”

XD: Where do you see yourselves in 10 years?

Nisha: “Living somewhere in a house that we helped renovate, having a successful Optometry practice, and travelling the world!”

XD: “Any other fun/interesting info you’d like to share?”

Nisha: “We are cartoon characters at heart.  You will always find us being silly, making funny faces, and taking goofy pics!  It’s rare that we can find a picture where we are both being serious”

XD: “What stands out as your favourite part of the wedding day?”

Nisha: “The photo shoot with the Xero Team! Starting at the hotel when we were getting ready for the reception & having a push up competition. Then driving over to Kleinberg, it was  tons of fun!

These are the types of couples who we have felt completely comfortable around since day one & were such a blast to photograph! I mean it wasn’t hard, check out how photogenic they are! (and I swear we didn’t bribe Nisha on that last question!!)  Nisha & Raj’s entire day was beautiful, so touching to see her brother’s walking her down the aisle, and her father’s tears of happiness (& maybe a little sad at her little girl all grown up) after the ceremony. The array of colours of saris was incredible, the words said in their ceremony were perfect & I don’t think their family & friends ever stopped dancing! From morning to night they were all movin’, it really was a big celebration! The end of July is hot in the best of summers, but oh my we were cookin’! Of course the two of them didn’t even bat an eye, even with Nisha in over 20lbs of beading and clothing I don’t know how she was still standing & Raj in that dark suit! We had plenty of time for photos, which is a photographer’s dream of course! So when Nisha & Raj gave us a few hours and 3 locations for photos our love for them was solidified! All that time in the heat sure paid off, have a look at their amazing photos! We loved working with you guys, and keep in touch!
