Engagement (e-session) Shoot at Le Perouse in Sydney


The engagement session, commonly called an e-session, is an opportunity for the bride-to-be and groom-to-be to take photos in a location that is special to them.















Engagement session, commonly called an e-session, is an opportunity for the bride-to-be and groom-to-be to take photos in a location that is special to them. It gives all of us (The photographer and the couple) an opportunity to get to know each other better. 

This is a chance for you to show the world your personalities. You can share this through what you wear and where you do your session at. 

This is such a great opportunity for us to make a connection with you before the actual wedding day. We can get a good feel for your personalities, what you like about our photography and it gives you a chance to become more comfortable being in front of the camera without the stress of the wedding day. 

There is not a lot of time on that all important day for you to get comfortable with the camera. If you already know what to expect it can add precious minutes to making photos where you look comfortable and not tense.

Outside of having some awesome photos to share with your friends there are some many other uses. You can use your e-session photos for things like your wedding website (we can make you one), your 'save the date' post card, Facebook, in a guest book, a slideshow at the wedding or some other creative way. 

The best time to do an e-session is in the late afternoon as the sun is just starting to set or the early morning when it's rising. The natural light makes for absolutely gorgeous photos! 

Another thing about e-sessions is that they are a perfect opportunity for the bride to give her wedding day hair and makeup a run through.

When it comes to outfit choices for your engagement sessions you want to show your personality. We love it when our couples dress up and you can always bring a second outfit with you. Nice jeans and a dressy top work great also!

HINDU WEDDING CEREMONY OF FISHING FOR THE RING

Indian Weddings are vibrant, musical and loaded with religious and traditional ceremonies/rituals. Grandeur, a variety of food, color, music, dancing and fun are seamlessly blended with culture and heritage in Indian weddings. Each ritual has a story or a deep meaning to it. 




This chapter of the blog will discuss one of the traditional rituals of 'Fishing the Ring. I have seen this ritual performed in Gujarati, Punjabi and Tamil Weddings and always brings a lot of applauds and laughter from the newly wed and the guests.



When the couple appears as man and wife before the family gathering for the first time, the big question is who will be the dominant person in their relationship. The game/ritual of ' Fishing the Ring' is conducted to answer this question. 
One of the newlywed's rings is placed in a pot of milk (or water mixed with various spices to make the water opaque). and asking the couple to 'fish'. Whoever finds the ring first is said to have the upper hand …

Hasta Melap (Milap) Ceremony - performed after Kanya Daan has a lot of significance. It involves the tying of the groom's scarf or shawl to the bride's sari. The tying of knot and the joined hands of the couple are symbolic of the meeting of two hearts and souls. The acharya or the priest chants mantras and seeks the blessings of Goddess Laxmi and Parvati for the couple. The family and relatives witness the conduct of the ceremony and come forward to bless the bride and groom.



















Indian Bridal Shoot (Fuleku ceremony) - Traditional Hindu Wedding Ceremony

The ceremony of Fuleku (Phuleku) is a rarity these days within Hindu Wedding Ceremonies. Traditionally Fuleku ceremony involves the to-be groom rides on the horse-back around the entire village prior to the actual wedding ceremony. This gives everyone a chance to know who is going to be the groom of one of the girls of their village. This ceremony is usually a symbol of pride for the bride's parents who are very proud of the to-be son-in-law and would like to advertise this emotion to the entire village.

However, Fuleku (namesake only) tradition for the below blog is where the bride (to-be) is invited for dinner to her sister's (or some other female relative like aunty) place prior to the wedding. This is supposed to be a very casual evening with lots of dances, extensive palette of cuisine and lots of banter between the sisters and their husbands. 
Hemangi's wedding was in the town of Jamnagar in the state of Gujarat. However, her Fuleku ceremony took place in the city of…
