Vancouver Wedding Photographer Tomasz Wagner

Nikkei Place Wedding

Photographing the wedding of these two creatives had an element of something extra special. It’s hard to place my finger on it even in retrospect, but there seemed to be an added element of understanding for the creative process and of allowing things to unravel naturally. It was like this throughout the day—from their families’ homes in the morning to the evening celebration at Nikkei Place

The two met ten years ago during their studies in the Film Production program at the University of British Columbia. Little did they know (or maybe they knew well) that they would eventually become partners and esteemed independent filmmakers, even collaborating on a number of films including the award-winning feature documentary, Blood Relative. Nimisha sums it up in her vows to Mark: “…I want you to know that you are still my nemesis today.” I felt like I was in good company during the process of working with Nimisha & Mark—wonderful company in fact. They’re the sort of people who are immeasurably generous and kind, who are tender together with a healthy dose of playfulness as if between old, good friends. And they shared this with me and their family and friends—during the morning preparations, the First Look, from the slow motions of the day to the ones that last an instant. And when they reenacted the “Twist” scene from Pulp Fiction at Nikkei Place. They have a way about them, these two. As an admirer of their work and people who can tell stories in the ways they do, I was a bit star-struck (but don’t tell them that). As their wedding photographer, the experience couldn’t have been any more validating and, well, fun. Thanks for having me, Mish & Mark

Venue: Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre in Burnaby
Music: Free Spirits by Made in Japan
