Malini and Shane’s Engagement Ceremony

Malini and Shane’s traditional engagement ceremony was special and unique for me to photograph. It is always so much fun to do something new and experience a new cultural tradition, it was perfect.  It was a short Hindu engagement ceremony, including a couple of prayers and some singing followed by a luncheon. They kept it low-key so they did not upstage the actual wedding, which is in until 2023.  I really enjoyed this unique experience.  Right after that, we got some group pictures. Shane and Malini were a little camera-shy, so we put an emphasis on candid shots of the ceremony and group portraits. After that, we did get in some very cute couple portraits which I loved!

We started their session at the hedge row for some bright shots at the front.  Then, we went to the back by under the big oaks to get some natural-looking portraits. It is beautifully backlit and is a great backdrop. I was sure to get some individual portraits for both of them. Malini made her dress for the day and I really wanted to showcase it!  After that, we walked back to the building and we finished off with a few more group shots.

I am so grateful for being chosen to be a small part of their wedding story and cannot wait for the wedding in 2023!   Congratulations Malini and Shane, I cannot wait to see you get married!
