It’s been a long time since my last post, but there’s a good reason for that.  I gave birth to a precious baby girl Iman 3 months back.  We feel truly blessed.

After about a 6 month break from work, it was really lovely to photograph Nishy & David’s wedding last weekend.   This is a sneak peak of their Sangeet and their wedding pictures will soon follow.  Nishy and David are one of the sweetest couples I have had the pleasure of working with.  I got to know Nishy and her parents well throughout the last year, and they truly made me feel like a part of the family and not their wedding photographer.  This is priceless.  Her father would check up on whether I had a chance to eat at every event, which was just so sweet!
I was excited when I found out that David had a Lankan connection,  in fact his mother was born down the road from my home in Colombo.  His cousin and I went to the same school in Sri Lanka.  Wow, small world heh?
David is a perfect gentleman, kind and laid back.  Nishy, well where do I begin.  Effortlessly beautiful, is one way to describe her.  She lights any room, with her perfect smile and pure happy energy.  I told my husband, that you just cant help but feel happy when you are around her.  What a gift!  Needless to say, David and Nishy are in for a fabulous life together, filled with lots of love, happiness and adventure.  Thank you for including me on your special day and I wish you both a terrific life ahead.
