Toronto, ON: Dee & Keith’s “Casablanca Re-Write” Engagement Shoot

“If that plane leaves the ground and you’re not with him, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.”

It’s not an easy undertaking when asked to re-write film history, but when Dee & Keith came to Kumari with their vision to replicate and re-record infamous moments from the classic film Casablanca, we couldn’t pass up the oppurtunity! Dee & Keith have a natural flair for detail, and so a weight was lifted when the props were found and locations scouted to recreate some of the most epic scenes from the film. Whether turning a modern day restaurant into an early 1900′s speak-easy, or turning daytime to night; Kumari’s talented lighting artists stepped up to the plate and knocked this one our of the park!

Thank you Dee & Keith for the inspiration to push limits and quite literally re-write film history! We can’t wait to turn a new page in the history books at your wedding!

Toronto, ON: Ambreen & Puneet’s Financial District E-Shoot

Who doesn’t love playing games?… add a picnic and beautiful spring weather to the mix and you got yourself the makings of an amazing e-shoot! Ambreen and Puneet’s easy going personality was just right for a “games night” themed e-shoot. Puneet being from beautiful sunny AZ, wanted the taste of downtown TO. So in true Canadian style we gave him a photographer’s tour of Toronto…and the photos turned out beautifully!

Thank you Ambreen for being up for anything, and a hearty Canadian welcome to Puneet…we hope you fall in love with our city and don’t sweep our beautiful Ambreen away to the US…pls move here! xoxo


Vivian & David’s “Trash The Dress” Shoot

After most weddings, dresses are stored for the sake of preserving the beauty of a couple’s most important day. We, on the other hand, love to push the limits and love even more to have couples that like to do the same. Vivian and David definitely fit the bill for the tall order ahead of them. Vivian wished to give her dress one last hurrah, and without hesitation or flinch we were on the scene to capture this spectacular trashing of Vivian’s dress! Mud, wind, or frigid april waterfall temperatures didn’t stop any of us.

Thanks Vivian & David for making our jobs a blast right from our first beginning- shaking Toby’s paws in a wild flower garden, shooting you guys in a carnival, and continuing past the fun with the trashing of your dress! It’s never a dull moment in front of our lenses thanks to wonderfully creative and trusting people like yourselves! XOXO

Nina & Milap’s Engagement Shoot

We’re always so excited to go to new cities and discover unknown shoot locations. Adventure is always the name of the game when we location scout…and those of you who know Monty, know that he’ll never leave any rock unturned and has a keen eye to find amazing locations.  Chicago gave us an amazing background to shoot against, but the windy city didn’t make it easy for us! I could barely keep my feet on the ground with the gusts of cold wind blowing all around us, but in the eye of a storm enter Nina and Milap- a GORGEOUS couple, they added so much class to an already amazing city.

Thank-you Nina and Milap for being such troopers despite the freezing conditions…we’re super excited for our next shoot!:)


Paul & Anne’s Metropolitan Park Run-Away

Running is a normal occurrence for any busy metropolitan, yet rarity befalls those wishing to slow down and enjoy the little things. Paul & Anne mix as well as work and pleasure. Their day started with the scent of the elusive Japanese Cherry Blossoms of High Park, an even rarer occasion than having a chance to simply step out of the metropolitan cycle of work, sleep & coffee. A daring escape to expression ended their day at the always-bright Yonge-Dundas Square.
It was a tale of two cities, and we were joyed to be there for both. Thank you Anne & Paul, and we look forward to continuing the fun on your big day!
