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!

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 cou ...

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! The first weekend in October I had the pleasure of being the photographer for Suzanne and Andy's wedding at the Atlanta History Center. It was great to be outdoors and shoot a wedding in daylight with a beautiful couple. Here are a few sample favorites from the wedding day before the full blog post comes in the future! ...
