With Arvind proposing to Shania in India at the Golden Temple, we wanted to create a modern look for their engagement shoot at home. Our vision for Arvind & Shania’s engagement shoot was for it to feel as though we were flipping through a magazine.
Arvind and I met through our family. Our families have known each other for 20 years and he had seen me at my parents business and told his sister that he liked me. His sister told his mom and his mom told mine.
We both love being active and spending our time by doing activities such as hiking, working out and playing with our dogs. We also love to travel so we always have spontaneous trips that we literally will book a week in advance so it keeps our relationship exciting.
We first became best friends and were able to tell each other everything which made us trust each other. From there, a spark grew and once we started talking about our future, I knew he was the one.
He surprised me in India at the Golden temple when we went to go wedding outfit shopping! He got the ring ready in 2 weeks before our trip and planned it all with his family. His parents kept telling me I had to dress up and do my makeup to go to the temple but I refused to. Then his sister said she was dressing up so we could take nice pictures so then I ended up dressing up as well and when I got there I was praying and when I turned around he was on one knee.
My ring is a classic round brilliant just over 3 carats with a band with diamonds that go all around. I wanted something classic and clean so this is perfect.
Yes, I am super excited! I know that I want an outdoor wedding and that’s pretty much it so far!
