Simi and Jay Engagement Ceremony!

weddings

I've been looking forward to posting these images of Jay and Simi's engagement ceremony.  Here is one of my favorites...

There were several exciting aspects to this shoot.  One remarkable quality of this celebration was the food.  Nelli and I love Indian food and it was delicious.  As photographers, the colors present at this event were great as well.  I loved the bold colors, especially in Simi's dress.

Love this one...

The cuteness of this little girl was a highlight as well.  She is the same age as our baby girl Zoe and she reminded us of her all day.  I didn't catch her name but she was often affectionately referred to as "chicken nugget"

The formal presentation of the ring brought nearly as much joy and emotion as the original.

I just couldn't decide between these next two...

Right after the ceremony was over, we decided to take advantage of one of the nicest April afternoons for weather we've had in a while.  It required some hiking, some climbing and some special mud avoidance techniques but once there, it was a secluded space of nature with the afternoon lighting I could only hope for.  Since this was the second time I had the opportunity to photograph Simi and Jay in the week, the resulting images were nearly effortless.  As a professional photographer, I hope for and pursue above all else the ability to help my couples feel comfortable being themselves in front of the camera and letting their emotion and care for each other break the surface.  I also want it to be fun.  If we can mix in a bit of adventure in, that's great too.  We had all these things and I'm thankful for it.

And finally, the adventure getting back to the car...

I feel very fortunate to be a part of this session with an amazing couple.  They will be celebrating their wedding in just over two months, so you'll see them again soon.
