Recent Work | Yusra & Rahil’s Pakistani Muslim Wedding at Fort Gordon & Atlanta Marriott Gwinnett Place

Indian Wedding Muslim Wedding Wedding

Ah another great wedding in Augusta! Yusra & Rahil wrapped up my month-long expedition to beautiful Augusta, Georgia with a wedding there every weekend for 4 weeks straight. At least for Sunday’s Walima we were back in Atlanta! Friday’s Mehndi and Saturday’s Baraat were both held at the Fort Gordon Officer’s Club (South and North halls), with the final Valima at the Atlanta Marriott Gwinnett Place. This wedding also has the distinction of being the hottest wedding of the year, as this was the weekend that we had that record heat wave and it was 106 or higher even in Augusta! Luckily these were indoor weddings =). On to a few quick preview photos from these weddings, full wedding post coming up in a few weeks once I finish the wedding video as well!

We took A LOT of group wedding photos on the stages each night, but I had to get one of all of us! Dennis on the left of me and of course Betty on the far end with our beautiful bride and groom sandwiched between us =)

Sorry for the flood of photos for just the preview! It’s hard to shoot my usual 5-6 photos when it’s THREE WHOLE DAYS of wedding excitement! I tried to stick to the 3-4 rule per day =). Check back in a few weeks for the full blog post with TONS of photos from each day!

Leslie & Phil’s Wedding | Villa Christina | Atlanta Wedding Photographer
What an amazing couple! Well, not that I don't love all of my brides and grooms of course (and I probably say that every blog post if I checked), but I definitely had a ton of fun with Leslie & Phil! From our engagement session we did what seems like ages ago at Lake Lanier (and took some photos that are still some of my overall favorites!), to all of the planning leading up to the wedding and the wedding day itself, it has been my pleasure to work with them. All of those Facebook messages and consulting and planning finally paid off with a beautiful ceremony and a rockin' party at the reception! We started the day just around the corner ...

Wedding Album | Indian Wedding Photography
I just got this premium wedding album back from the printers right before we left New York to photograph a pair of Indian Weddings in Augusta and Florida. These are our premium upgraded albums with a crystal cover, leather spine, and extra thick pages to give the album a super premium luxury feel. The parent albums were also upgraded to the full premium leather cover with die-cut center and embossed text. To cap off this awesome wedding album set, we also set up a deluxe art box with a cover from the reception to keep the album in perfect condition when not in view.
