Zaheer & Amita contacted us early on their wedding planning process. I actually met with them while I was over in Tobago to shoot another wedding. From the time we began to talk they struck me as a young couple, full of life but mature and ready to face the next season as married couple. Their wedding was beautiful two day event held at the Lovely Ohana Villla, Bacolet Tobago. The first day was the Hindu Ceremony and the Second day was the Western Reception. The energy and colour of the couple was reflected in every detail of the the wedding and time in between day one and two seemed more like a pause as opposed to two different events. As for Zaheer and Amita, their lightheartedness and somtimes silly antics made them a pleasure to shoot and just be around in general.
Congratulations again, hope to see you soon.
Posting from Ohana Villa just before the start of the second day of the two day wedding of Zaheer & Amita. Amazing day yesterday, hoping for more of the same today.
Ok, we finally get to the Davin (from here on in Ming) and Anna-Lise Wedding. Better know as a the Skittles or the Rainbow wedding (take your pick).
Ayinde met with Ming & Anna-Lise some time ago, that day (unfortunately) I pulled up just as they were walking out the door and we really didn’t have time to talk. Fortunately, Anna-Lise’s personality is just really bubbly…I mean, you can see it in the photos and Ming is just a very, very, very cool customer, so even though I didn’t “meet” them before, the day of the wedding it felt like I was with couple I had known for while. They kinda just fit.
Now, considering that, it makes sense that their decor, dresses, ties, favors, even the groomsmen socks were rainbow coloured. It seemed to be an apt reflection of both Anna-Lise and Ming. Ming is the calm after the rain, the still, constant appearing of the sun and Anna-Lise is the bright and cheerful but almost entrancing spectacle of the rainbow…or something like that.
The one thing that stood out and stayed with me, was one speech about Ming…I’m not sure who gave it but it really spoke to the heart if the man and his care for others, I think the story goes; he had some workmen working on a construction project and the rain began to fall heavily, the workmen pressed through the conditions and finished the job but Ming was saddened by the whole situation and he expressed “No one should have to work that hard”. Now I don’t really know Ming except for our interactions on the wedding day but in that moment I gained great respect for him.
At any rate, it was an excellent wedding, from the impromptu first look, to the tassa, to the man himself, Swappi (inna 4D).
Congratulations Anna-Lise and Ming
Its been a while since we’ve done a Monday wedding. Here’s one from yesterday.
Normally, we don’t do a reception shot for One shot, but this was too good to pass up. Swappi (inna 4D), a Soca Artiste from Trinidad & Tobago performed at the wedding last evening and if this photo(s)is any indication of what transpired, you know a good time was had by all.
Some images are timeless and if its one thing I like about fearless photographers is that you can submit images you created whenever…because a good image is a good image.
We created this one some time ago and we already won a WPJA award for it but it still strikes a chord of “laugh out loud” for most people.
