Jackson Heights & Long Island City Civil Ceremony | Jessica & Emran | New York City Fusion Indian Wedding

Indian Wedding Muslim Wedding Wedding

A couple weeks back I had the privilege of attending and documenting Jessica and Emran’s civil ceremony in Long Island City in Queens, New York. It was a warm Saturday in the Summer and we started things off early before it heated up too much with a quick engagement pre-wedding photo session around their home in Jackson Heights, Queens. I had so much fun as they showed me their favorite neighborhood bagel shop, fresh market, and Colombian cafe in their neighborhood. Your engagement session does not have to be so stiff and formal, I love including this super candid “day in the life” or lifestyle engagement session that is totally about the couple and their personality.

Previously I had only seen Jackson Heights around the train and subway station since I often take the LIRR to Woodside and then the bus to LaGuardia Airport for destination weddings. Who knew that just a few blocks away from the Jackson Heights subway station is such a vibrant local part of New York City!

Our Jackson Heights Engagement session continued around the neighborhood. From the photos, it looks super diverse but that is just how New York City is! We only walked about 4 or 5 blocks in Queens and the neighborhood changed from Colombian to South Asian in just those few blocks, which is why this part of New York is the perfect neighborhood for this amazing couple!

That about wrapped up our morning session in Jackson Heights, it was time to take an Uber over to Long Island City for the Civil Ceremony on the waterfront overlooking the Manhattan skyline!

Our beautiful intimate Long Island City civil ceremony was attended by only the 5 of us, the couple, an officiant friend, and a witness friend… and me, the photographer, of course :). After their New York City civil ceremony we took a few portraits with the beautiful Manhattan skyline in full view. Being high noon in full sun made things a little tricky but it’s pretty hard to take a bad photo of these two beautiful people.

They’re already up on Facebook of course :). Jessica and Emran thanks for being two awesome people to work with, wishing you the best and hope to see you around New York City more!

While the sun glares down on me from Dunkin Donuts this morning, he is another blog post! As you maybe can tell from all of these wedding posts our Fall was super-duper busy with weddings almost every single weekend from August to December, and that doesn't mean the Summer was any less busy either from April to July!

As a follow up to my last post about Rosa & Bobby's pre-wedding engagement session, here is their full Vietnamese wedding that I never posted in it's entirety on the blog! I'm not exactly sure what I was doing around the time of this wedding, but more than likely it had to do with us getting into more and more Indian Weddings, and the days of shooting and editing that come with them as to why I never blogged Rosa & Bobby's wedding. As I mentioned in the previous post (Rosa & Bobby's Pre-Wedding), I was digging up another wedding for someone on an old backup hard drive, when seeing this folder nearby caught my attention and after a ...
