Dilshad & Sabir Engagement | Cooking Class & Piedmont Park | Atlanta Ismaili Indian Wedding Photographer

As has been the theme here on the blog, I’m finally getting around to posting a bunch of shoots from the end of 2014 that never went up earlier for one reason or another with all the traveling from New York back down to Atlanta. Even though today finally feels like Spring in New York up here, this engagement session was a hot one – and not just because of the two people involved! Ok corny jokes aside about a hot couple and cooking, we had a blast at this Atlanta engagement session starting off the day at the Irwin Street Cooking School inside the Irwin Street Market before heading over to Piedmont Park for some formal evening and night time photos and finally hitting the Jackson Street Bridge. The cooking session was super fun where we baked a cake in the cooking school’s kitchen before changing and heading over to Piedmont Park for some classic engagement photos. We started with some greenery and then were lucky enough to catch a super colorful sunset that perfectly complimented Dilshad’s amazing traditional dress for the evening photos. The final stop of the night was some formal wear photos at the Jackson Street Bridge for the classic Atlanta downtown skyline photo. Enjoy these amazing Atlanta engagement photos!

Hang & Bory Pre-Wedding Bridal Session | Atlanta Vietnamese Cambodian Wedding Photographer

Throwback Thursday! #TBT ! Haha, just kidding! But I am definitely reminiscing about the much warmer weathers from this amazing pre-wedding bridal shoot from before we moved to New York! And yes, I do other weddings besides just photographing Indian Weddings ;). Back in June of last year down in Atlanta I had the honor of being the photographer for Hang and Bory’s Vietnamese/Cambodian wedding, and before the big day (which is a whole separate blog post of amazing photos), we did a pre-wedding shoot with the entire bridal party and some portraits of the bride and groom. I’m not quite sure how these photos are free of sweat, because even though the bridesmaids are looking beautiful and the groomsmen handsome in every photo… we were drenched in sweat and running for shade in between each shot! June is definitely the middle of Summer, and an Atlanta Summer is no joke! Thank you thank you thank to the entire wedding party of doing all of these photos for the bride and groom, keeping the energy high, looking amazing, and contributing so much to make sure Hang and Bory had an awesome experience for their wedding. Let’s do it again!!! =D

Saaraa & Naim’s Nikkah & Reception | W Atlanta Midtown | Atlanta Ismaili Indian Wedding Photography

The final day of Saaraa & Naim’s Atlanta Ismaili wedding took place at Atlanta Ismaili HQ Jamatkhana and the reception at the W Atlanta Midtown Hotel. Saaraa got ready at home with the help of Beauty by Anh who made her look even more gorgeous, before Naim arrived and picked her up in the limousine. After the Nikkah ceremony at Ismaili HQ we headed up to the top floor of the W Atlanta Midtown Hotel for Khoba Kobi, before everyone got changed for the evening reception downstairs in the ballroom.

Saaraa & Naim’s Pithi | Occasions Event Hall | Atlanta Ismaili Indian Wedding Photography

Day 2 of Saaraa & Naim’s Ismaili wedding celebration was the pithi ceremony which took place at Occasions Event Hall. Pithi night is definitely one of my favorite parts of the wedding with lots of dancing, events, and of course the egg ceremony =). With so much action going on during just the second day of this Ismaili wedding, of course I had to post a ton of the photos here to the blog. From the bride’s pithi ceremony, to the groom’s egg ceremony, and then the evening reception which included several performances and skits about how the lovely couple met, this was a night to remember. Check out just a few of these fun photos from another amazing Atlanta Indian Wedding!

2015 Chinese New Year Parade Chinatown NYC with the Sony A7R

Yesterday was the annual Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown in New York City, so we decided to grab Miles and head over to check it out! Even though Chinese New Year itself fell earlier in the week, the parades are on the weekend of course and Sunday was the 2015 parade date. Luckily the weather up here in New York totally cooperated after a little snow and freezing rain on Saturday when the Flushing CNY parade was happening, the Sunday festivities in NYC’s Chinatown saw (relatively) warm temperatures in the 40s – a perfect weekend day in the city! I had my trusty Sony A7R with me, and our little spot we staked out towards the end of the route was perfect, also because it was near the playground in Sara D. Roosevelt Park so Miles could escape to play a bit while we waited for the start!

I’ve been a little behind on posting new wedding photography photos to the blog, but you can head over to the facebook fan page to see last weekend’s Pakistani Indian wedding in Atlanta, and this coming weekend I am heading down to Savannah & Hilton Head Island for an awesome destination Hindu Indian wedding! Always super busy with South Asian weddings but here are some fun travel photos from life in New York City in the meantime =).
