These two events are family side, with the bride and the groom each having different experiences of these common traditions. For Mehul’s part, with more family coming in, the celebration got bigger and more fun. The mendhi was done first by the very talented Tejal Mali, and the next day, Mehul was nicely yellowed by all his aunts and sisters. If you want to see, check it out here. Password is the same as last time.
Well it’s finally started. Mehul and Sheral are finally getting married. After all the waiting and planning, things kicked off with the Sanji night at the ACCA Centre. Dancing, playing, laughing, and eating with friends, family, and friends and family that are soon to be was the order of the evening. Outside of the learning curve for dandia, everyone had a great time. If you want to see, take a look at the gallery here. There is a password, but you can ask Mehul or Sheral for that.
After Mehul asked the question on the sands of Puerto Vallarta earlier this year, it’s been just a matter of time before the official engagement ceremony to take place. With friends, family, and more family all around, Mehul bent his knee and once again asked in front of everyone present and Sheral accepted.

A word of mouth referral is a great complement. But when it’s to capture something as significant to a family as a baptism, that’s a special honour. That’s what happened when the Adatias passed on the names of Angilynn and Robert to me. Angilynn grew up here in Edmonton, and came home (from the Cayman Islands – so this was somewhat of a reverse destination shoot for me!) to have her son baptized. Perhaps adding some special significance to the ceremony, it was the final service for the pastor as well. In a beautiful ceremony, Christian was taken through the rights and rituals and as I write this, is heading back home to the sun and sand of the Caribbean. You’ll need to contact Angilynn to get the password for the gallery, but when you do, click here and you can see the ceremony for yourself.
I first met Ashley and Darryl a few years back when we did a quick little family session at the Legislature grounds a few years ago. I don’t know how long Ashley and Darryl had been together at that point, but there was definitely something there between them. Fast forward to this summer and I was fortunate enough to work with this great family again at their wedding. A small ceremony out in Fort Saskatchewan followed up with a reception at the Highlands Golf Course. If you want to see this gorgeous couple’s special day for yourself, click here.
17 years ago, I graduated high school at LCI. Nothing special, just an honor roll student. Fast forward to this past weekend and my youngest brother crossed the stage as President of Student Council, after giving an amazing speech to his class of 200+ who were also honoured for their achievement. I can’t believe how fast those 17 years has flown by. I’ve watched my little brother grow from a little tike who I taught to walk to a young man who hopes to teach others and I couldn’t be more proud. This gallery is focused on my brother. So if you don’t see yourself, and were expecting to, please be fore warned. The gallery is also password protected, so you’ll have to get that from Jyote, but once you do, click here and enjoy.
