Nadia & Sohail’s Pithi | Occasions Event Center | Atlanta Indian Ismaili Wedding Photography

Indian Wedding Muslim Wedding Wedding

Some quick preview photos from Nadia & Sohail’s Pithi Ceremony at Occasions Event Center in Atlanta are finally up on the blog! I’m almsot done with the Nikkah photos as well so that will be posted soon but I couldn’t wait to share these photos! The Pithi ceremony is one of my absolute favorite parts of an Ismaili wedding, it is just so exciting from a photography and videography viewpoint =). Anyone who has ever attended an Indian wedding like this will know what I mean, and let’s just say that Sohail’s friends really know how to do the egg ceremony portion =).

Also, I looooved Nadia’s dress for the later part of the evening (after changing from the Pithi ceremony). The red color was amazing, really nice! Well of course Sohail was in a matching red one that perfectly complimented hers, what can I say they look good together =). Ok, back to finishing up these Nikkah photos! Look for many many more photos from the Pithi ceremony to come to the blog later!

Jeff Newsom Workshop Review | Ultra Atlanta ATLMGDDN 2014
After a few months of letting it sink in I figured it was time to write a quick blog post about my experience at Jeff Newsom's Atlanta workshop ATLMGDDN which took place at the Goat Farm in April, and what I got out of it. Another mostly rambling blog post with stream of consciousness thoughts, but I think I eventually get to the point... TL;DR Workshop Review: Lots of technical information was given, realize I already know a lot of it, but come to the conclusion that Jeff taught me an important life lesson to continue being an artist true to yourself. Worth it, but took me a while to realize what I learned. To preface this post, their is ...
