Edmonton Sangeet & Jaggo Photographers | Groom Andy’s event preview

{30th May 2013}

In May 2013, I, Funmi, had the pleasure of second shooting Andy’s Edmonton Sangeet & Jaggo for Romy Young Photography. It was the first Sangeet & Jaggo I had ever covered so I learnt that it is a pre-wedding event that happens a few days before the wedding. This was a Groom’s Sangeet & Jaggo so the evening started with koris, traditional songs sung by Andy’s female relatives. I learnt afterwards that the lyrics are were mischievous jokes betweeen the families, which explains all the giggles in the first image!

The arrival of Andy was heralded with more singing and dancing whilst some of his other relatives carried brass pots decorated with oil-lit candles on their heads amongst themselves. They also carried decorated sticks with bells and drums. This procession is known as “Jaggo” and is a fun announcement of the upcoming wedding.

These 5 images are very small preview of the festivities that night. Full collection will be published shortly.

Thanks Romy for having me along for the day. Congratulations again to Andy & his Bride, Ameet!

Edmonton Engagement Photographers | Edmonton Skyline & Hawrelak Park

{10th August 2014}

Nanette & Francois are also newcomers to Edmonton like us. They love their new city so much that they wanted to include their new car in their engagement session at a location that showed off Edmonton; for them, it was a celebration of a start of a new era in their relationship. We suggested the awesome Edmonton Skyline as a starting point. That Sunday was a glorious summery day for Nanette & François’ Edmonton engagement session! We finished off their session with a magnificent sunset at Willam Hawrelak Park.

We loved getting to know this lovely couple and finding out that they both love chocolate – just as well as their gift from us, Jacek Chocolate became one of the cameos for their session! They enjoyed the freshly made & delectable chocolates so much that they asked to include it in their session. By the way, we had no idea that Nanette would choose a teal and peach coloured dress for this session, it’s a lucky coincidence that the palette works so work with the chocolates ha!

After posting a few previews on our facebook page last week, they sent us this lovely message:

“We are also getting really kind comments regarding the samples you posted, so very good work! We’re very happy that we get to have you as our photographers!”

Thanks Nanette & Francois for fabulous time and for allowing us to share your lovely feedback. We’re so excited to cover your Edmonton wedding in a few weeks!

Edmonton Wedding Portraits | Hardware Grill

Our Oct 2013 Bride & Groom, Sarah & Ben actually got married at her parents’ home in Edmonton before having their cocktail wedding reception at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald. We blogged about their wedding back in 2013 but today, we thought we would share the story behind 3 of their Edmonton wedding portraits.

As always, we had agreed with them and their awesome Wedding Planner, Jennifer of Fresh Look Event Management, the locations & times for their Edmonton wedding portraits. Adrian & I had already checked out the locations in advance of the wedding day. However, when we got there on their wedding day, there was unexpected construction there!

Luckily, the place was very close to Hardware Grill; though Hardware Grill is known for being a high quality restaurant that offers creative prairie flavors & French influenced meals, their premises are also gorgeous. Adrian & I asked the staff there for permission to take some photographs. They explained politely that it was their busiest time so would appreciate it if we were quick. Sarah & Ben were just around the corner so we got them to come in and within 5 minutes, we got these beautiful images for them. We thanked Hardware Grill for being so accommodating of the last minute request. Thanks again to Hardware Grill!

These are a few of our favourites from their wedding day. We just love the elegance of them. This series remind us of an old Hollywood romance movie! You can see much more images and full story from their Edmonton wedding day here.
