Breanne & Stewart Married at the Willows

Posted in shoots, wedding photography by Hemant Naidu on January 25, 2012

You may remember Breanne and Stewart from my most recent engagement shoot. Breanne currently lives in Saskatoon, and Stewart lives just outside London, England, but that wasn’t going to get in their way of getting married. I thoroughly enjoyed the short time I had to spend with these two, and was honoured to be part of their day at the Willows Golf & Country Club. Stewart will officially move here this summer, so if you see him around be sure to welcome him to Canada.

Leading up to the wedding we were hoping to be able to make some photos outside in the snow. We all knew that winters in Saskatchewan are incredibly unpredictable, but thankfully we ended up getting very lucky. The temperature was balmy for this time of year, and we were able to spend a fairly comfortable time at the Red Barn at the Willows. The evening continued back at the clubhouse with a very intimate champagne toast and dinner.

Here are some of my favourite shots from the day.

Breanne & Stewart Engaged in Saskatoon

Breanne is marrying Stewart tomorrow. You may be wondering why I’m only posting the engagement photos the day before the wedding. The answer is that Breanne lives in Saskatoon and her fiancĂ© Stewart is from just outside of London, England. He arrived a week and a half ago, so we wasted no time getting in the engagement shoot.

We spent an afternoon together wandering around various buildings at the University of Saskatchewan making photographs. With this uncharacteristic Saskatchewan winter we’re having, we were also able to get a few shots outside. I promised Breanne and Stewart that I would have their engagement photos completed by the time they got married, so here they are.

These are my favourites from the afternoon.

The Lara Family

Posted in family photography, shoots by Hemant Naidu on December 18, 2011

It was Connie’s birthday, and her daughter-in-law Alison told me that she hadn’t had her photo taken in over twenty five years. The whole family decided that family photos would be the perfect gift. I met the Laras at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon a few weeks ago. This seemed like a good location for the shoot since Connie and Cesar’s two sons and their wives had attended the UofS at one time or another.

We wandered throughout the campus and stopped to make some photographs as we found interesting locations. And I can safely say that this is the first time a shoot has ever erupted into a Kung Fu match. I had a great time with Connie and Cesar, Patrick and Ashlee, and Gerald and Alison on that Sunday afternoon. It’s always a pleasure to photograph a great family in an informal setting.

Here are some of my favourite shots from the afternoon.

Christy & Harley Married in Saskatoon

Christy and Harley really wanted a laid back wedding. They saw this as an opportunity to have a great time with their good friends and family. Their wedding was at Boffins Club at Innovation Place in Saskatoon. I met them at the gardens a few hours before their ceremony and reception so we could make some photographs together. The weather couldn’t decide if it was going to rain or not, but we managed to get through it completely dry.

The festivities inside Boffins Club were super relaxed, and everyone had a great time mingling and snacking. Christy and Harley got in lots of visiting before they kicked off the ceremony. The speeches that followed really showed just how much their family and friends care for them. I’m glad I had the opportunity to be part of their celebration.

Here’s what their wedding day looked like. Also be sure to check out their high definition slideshow.
