A few quick preview photos from Serena & Saifur’s Nikkah ceremony which took place at Poona Indian Restaurant! After the Nikkah and celebration at the restaurant with family and friends, we headed to the honeymoon suite at the W Hotel Atlanta Downtown and took a few more post-Nikkah photos of the beautiful bride and dashing groom! Enjoy these quick previews!
Just a few quick previews from Britney & Viet’s wedding which entailed the morning Vietnamese ceremony with reception at Happy Valley Restaurant’s banquet hall in Atlanta, Georgia.
Such a beautiful wedding with a beautiful couple! Many more amazing photos from this special day to be on a future blog post including the awesome bridal session at Oglethorpe University! Thank you so much for having me you two!
Third day of Shireen and Imran’s wedding celebration included the morning Nikkah at the Atlanta Ismaili Jamatkhana and the reception Saturday evening at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Buckhead. Entertainment was again provided by DJ Jaz which perfectly complemented the elegant decor and details which Shireen and Imran put into the entire reception. We laughed, we cried, we danced the night away =). Congratulations Shireen and Imran on your amazing wedding day!! We start this monster wedding photo blog post with the morning preparations, the Nikkah at the Atlanta Ismaili Jamat Khana, Khoba Khobi ceremony, and then reception at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead.
Shireen and Imran’s wedding weekend took place over 4 day of amazing events, the Mehndi night, Pithi/Sangeet night, the Nikkah/Reception, and finally the Satada/Rukhsati on Sunday. The Pithi ceremony is a cleansing and purification of the bride and groom, where family and friends place a mixture of turmeric paste on the skin to wish them good luck in their new journey together. Following the traditional Pithi ceremony, the egg ceremony was held outside where things got really messy for Imran =). Once Shireen and Imran cleaned up, they made a grand entrance, and the festivities got under way with a wedding game of “Bet on Your Man” to see how much everyone knew about Imran, some choreographed dancing, and then an open dance floor that was rocking thanks to DJ Jaz! On to the photos!
The second and final part of Shai and D’s Hindu and Ismaili fusion wedding was an amazing day full of family, friends, and fun! The morning started with Shai getting ready at home before heading to the Ismaili HQ center in Atlanta, and then off to Gallery Events Atlanta for a reception at a unique art gallery event hall. Lots of fun, dancing, and celebrating resulted in thousands and photos and hours of video, so here are just a small handful of previews!
More to come!
Super duper fun wedding with our favorite group of friends, Ismaili weddings know how to party! Well, what made this wedding even more unique is that it was an Ismaili and Hindu fusion wedding, so on Friday night it was Pithi and Garba mixed together for an even more awesome event. Just a few quick preview photos, and a million whenever I blog this full Hindu Ismaili Indian Fusion wedding at Mughal’s Banquet Hall!

In the attempt to write some new content on the blog while I’m in the middle of editing a million weddings – here are some travel photos from 2013! Looking back, some of these I never blogged before for whatever reason, probably too busy shooting weddings of course :). I started 2013 off in Sydney, Australia for Natasha and Karim’s wedding on January 1st, and then stopped by Tokyo and Saitama, Japan on the way back to shoot some time-lapse. In July Betty and I traveled to Istanbul, Turkey so that she could attend a professional conference. In Turkey we stayed after the conference for a few days and traveled to central Turkey to see the Cappadocia region. For engagement sessions I traveled to New York City twice, and San Francisco once, and then of course we were back down to Florida a few times to see Grandma or to drop Miles off and pick him up! Also, Betty made two trips to China to visit Nanjing and Ningbo, and also jumped across the pond for a quick visit to Amsterdam in the Netherlands! Pretty busy year now that I look back on it haha, enjoy these photos from our travels throughout 2013! Which one is your favorite?

Just sharing a few quick photos here on the blog from some recent weddings! Breaking this post up a bit into the daily events, and this Indian wedding kicked off with the mehndi night on Thursday evening in Atlanta! Super fun wedding where Betty and I were at the bride and groom’s houses separately for a change since the mehndi events occurred simultaneously. Here are a few photos including some photos Betty shot at the groom’s house as we only shot highlight video on this mehndi event so we could concentrate on photos in two places at once =)
Just a few previews for now from this Hindu Indian wedding in Atlanta! More to come including the Friday Garba night and Saturday full Hindu wedding ceremony and reception!
