At AGP, when we have clients that are up for just about anything and like to take an adventurous approach to their photo session we smile from ear to ear. We enjoy doing something that’s not the norm and love the excitement of trying different things. Back in October we had the pleasure of photographing Bridgette and Mark’s holi powder engagement Session. Bridgette and Mark’s session started off as most of our sessions do but with the addition of their usual Tim Horton’s Coffee Cups. Sipping on hot beverages together is something they enjoy doing so we decided to incorporate that into some photos. Once we captured some nice engagement images around the Manuel’s River Trail it was time to get down to the fun and dirty photos so we walked to a graffiti covered bridge and broke out some holi powder that Bridgette had actually made! Holi Powder for anyone who doesn’t know, is typically used during the Hindu spring festival in India and Nepal, also known as the “festival of colours” or the “festival of love”. The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring and end of winter. It also celebrates love and friendships. We thought it was a great way to capture their love and playful attitudes, and there’s no better time to share this with you all than during the arrival of spring and end of winter (finally) here in Newfoundland.
We can’t wait to photograph Bridgette and Mark’s wedding sometime in 2019!
*The Holi Powder we used was made at home by Bridgette. If you try this yourself, ensure the Holi Powder you use is safe for the environment.*
