Tasneem & Ali | Nikkah & Reception at Opal Event Hall | Atlanta Ismaili Indian Wedding Photography

Indian Wedding Muslim Wedding Wedding

Day 2 of Tasneem & Ali’s wedding took place at a variety of locations, from the Nikkah at Ismaili HQ in Decatur to the Westin Perimeter Atlanta for getting ready and finally the evening reception at Opal Event Hall. The day began at home with Tasneem’s hair and makeup by Samantha Gunn – Gunn Glamour.

More photos in the backyard because why not? :)

Ali came to pick her up and we did a quick first look before heading to Ismaili HQ Jamatkhana in Decatur.

Somehow we were early for Nikkah, which I don’t think has EVER happened to me before! So we took the opportunity to do some pre-Nikkah portraits at the Jamatkhana in the middle of the afternoon :)

Then it was time for Nikkah to get officially married!!!

We did the traditional Khoba Kobi ceremony following Nikkah back at Ali’s home before taking another portrait break before the evening reception. Always a fun event to see the bride and groom play some wedding games!

Finally, a short break before we reconvened at the Westin Perimeter Atlanta for reception preparations with Tasneem and Ali.

The reception took place at Opal Event Hall with decor by Events InStyle by Beenish who made the place look amazing before the evening’s dance party began! These families know how to party for sure!!


Such an amazing weekend for an amazing couple! Thanks for having us, Tasneem and Ali!

Sony A7R Wedding Photography – 2014 Mid-Year Update!
It's been a while since I posted any new photos from the Sony A7r from this year's weddings, so I figured now was as good as time as any! Well, it has been pretty slow on blog updates in general around here as the busy season for weddings never seems to end =). You can check out my initial thoughts on using the Sony A7r for wedding photography (and thoughts on the camera in general as I have had it since release) on this post, and then my follow-up post is here with more thoughts on using the camera. So here we go with a bunch of sample photographs from my 2014 wedding season so far with the Sony A7r! I'm going to lead with some photos and th ...
