As photographers we come across our clients in many different ways. Some are friends and some are strangers. I met Anita and James through a work colleague so essentially they were strangers I guess, but we soon became friends. When we first met up I was just beginning this adventure as a photographer. My portfolio consisted of work ranging from SPW Lighting workshop to ColourDujour fashion shoots and Tony and Tiffany’s Engagement. I was nervous though. It was very flattering that someone would want “me” to cover their engagement party and I, as with any client, really wanted to do a fantastic job for them. In order to make that happen I decided to enlist the help of David. This would be our first shoot together and would eventually result in the partnership that is now “Origami Creatives”.
Anita and James met at University and the relationship was a first for both of them. While James studied IT and Anita, Psychology, their relationship continued to grow. Their Engagement party was held in August last year and boy, did these guys know how to party! Everyone was up on the dance floor and the place was pumping! David and I had an awesome time photographing Anita and James celebrating with family and friends, many of whom had travelled from interstate and overseas to share in this special day.
So anyway, two weeks ago I received a call from James. He was having his wedding ceremony and he invited us to capture their special day. We said yes of course. How could we refuse such an amazing opportunity! This was our first Indian Wedding and while we had heard they were fun, colourful, action packed events, we still had no idea what to expect. We did our research, arrived extra early so as not to miss anything and managed to get some awesome behind the scenes and getting ready shots. The whole house was alive with excitement and it seemed that everyone had their role and knew what had to be done. It wasn’t long before James and his family arrived and the festivities began. Normally a traditional Indian wedding and it’s various ceremonies are spread over three days. Not this one! James and Anita condensed their wedding into a seven hour event and wow was it amazing! The time just flew by and we had such an amazing time capturing all those special moments Anita and James shared with each other and with Family and Friends.
We’re so grateful to have met Anita and James and travelled this journey with them. Not only are they partly responsible for the coming together of David and I, but it’s such an honour to know that they chose us to capture the entire uniting of their lives together, from Engagement to Wedding. Now that’s pretty special!
