Stay tuned for more images from the fabulous wedding I just shot at Boston…
A Warm Welcome!
It was just like another morning, the clock was ticking 7:30am, I woke up with a headache. I looked around, I saw my niece and nephew watching cartoon. I was so out of reality that I wondered what they were doing there (’cause they live in Toronto)! My sister who just had a brain surgery came by to see if I was up. I wondered how in the world she was walking around with a happy face!!! Then it all came back to me, I was getting married that day! It was my wedding day….
Today is our fourth wedding anniversary. Haaaa…I don’t know where these four years had gone! To me it’s still so new, so fresh (I guess it’s a good thing
Happy Anniversary, my sweetheart!

Meet Katie & Sean. Katie is a dancer, Sean is a firefighter for the City of Sacramento. And I have to say that I’m lucky to have the opportunity to be their photographer. The best part of being a wedding photographer (for me) is the opportunity to meet with new people, share in the joy of their most important day of life and the ability to capture those moments for them. The satisfaction I get out of all these is indescribable. And the satisfaction level heightens if the people I meet through this process are like Katie and Sean. May I say that they are super sweet?
I met K+S in April, since then I’ve been waiting to shoot their e-session. They had all the cool ideas about having their engagement photos done on the front porch of their new home. I was excited to hear their thoughts. When the time came and I went by their house for their engagement photos, I was astonished to see the home they owned! I always wondered who lived in that house every time I had driven by that street. I seriously had dreams about shoothing in front of that house (seriously…)! Those white fences, vibrant colors and the beautiful porch made it to be the perfect location. The shoot was a great success, I was so happy to see the outcome! First, they wanted to document their first home together along with their love story and I think we have captured it really well. Second, Katie and Sean made my dream come true (yeahhh,,,THANKS guys)
Katie and Sean, I’m so looking forward to your wedding in May. I hope you enjoy the images, as much as I did!
Behold…the pictures you are about to see are of Nudrat and Jason Owens, photographed by super rad photographers Jen and Chris Stewart of Jen Stewart Photography. Yes, I have finally gone on the other side of the camera to get me photographed!!! Can’t believe I had done that, but the Stewarts made it possible for me.
Jason and I have been married for four years. We had some nice pictures from our wedding day, but not that many good ones since then! It was about time that we get some photographs of us before we transform into something else! We contacted fellow photographer friends Jen and Chris with the prospect of having a portrait session with them. We met Jen and Chris a couple years back, and became friends since then. They agreed to our request, so there we were, in the woods, posing in front of the camera! Both Jason and I are camera shy, we feel awkward in such situations, we were totally out of our elements. But I think we played pretty well with Jen and Chris this time
I wanted to wear Saree, traditional Bengali outfit for the shoot. We wanted to keep it original and eclectic, just like uswork, they are simply awesome!
Now on to the pictures …
We were driving down a road and found this place with cactus garden and a run down house. Loved the look of it. We went out to shoot at the Cactus Meadow (as Chris called it) and they came out great!
