Zahra + Faizan | New York City Engagement | NYC Muslim Ismaili Wedding Photography

Engagement

Zahra and Faizan made the trip up from Atlanta to New York City a couple weeks ago for their engagement session (and also to hang out with me I think, lol!) and we had a great, albeit rainy, Saturday in the city! We started their destination engagement session in Central Park while we had some clouds and no rain, after meeting up with them on their hotel on 5th Avenue.

Walking a little further into Central Park we were on the lookout for more greenery since we were in the Park after all, but still showcasing a little bit of that New York City feel of tall buildings.

On to the Bethesda Fountain, always a super popular spot any time of day and especially on a weekend!

A quick stroll outside of the park lead us to try to incorporate some of the architecture from the MET, which I ended up trying to find them a peaceful corner in the hordes of tourists and locals taking advantage of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on a rainy weekend.

After an amazing lunch break at a little place on the Upper East Side, the drizzle had started so we did our outfit change and headed through Grand Central Terminal on our way to the Brooklyn Bridge.

Rain was in full effect by now and I have to give major props to Zahra for hiking the bridge in her heavy dress, heels, and the pouring rain.

Everyone loves a New York City Indian Wedding! Obliging the tourists to take a photo of these crazy people taking pictures on the Brooklyn Bridge in the pouring rain!

Zeenat & Ayaz’s Destination Engagement | Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge | New York City Indian Pre-Wedding
I guess it's only fitting now that the wedding is over that I finally post the photos from our engagement session a few months prior up in New York City! This was my first trip up to The City (and the first of two trips this year). We had a long, but awesome & productive, day running around the sight of New York City from Central Park to Lincoln Center to the Brooklyn Bridge getting some amazing pre-wedding photos. I really loved my time in NYC and can't wait to go back to enjoy the sights and of course the fooooooood (ramen!!) =) After playing around at Central Park and in the Sub ...

Wedding Photography Behind the Scenes Vlog #15 | Shubhi & Rahul’s Philadelphia Engagement Session
This week I head down to Philadelphia for Shubhi and Rahul's engagement session in the University City and University of Pennsylvania area of Philly! We will be celebrating their full Indian wedding down in Atlanta, Georgia really soon and I can't wait for that, and they took a break this weekend from their medical residencies to show me around the city for an amazing engagement session in that end of Summer weather! My poor RX100V broke the night before this trip so I didn't do as much "selfie" type vlogging as I was filming this vlog on my iPhone and on the bigger Canon DSLR that I was using to shoot the photos on, so no simultaneous beh ...

Recent Work | Serana & Saifur’s Engagement Session at Rhodes Hall & Centennial Olympic Park
Another quick "recent work" post to preview some of the crazy busy Summer/Fall/Winter wedding season we've been having around here! At least one and sometimes two events each week whether it's multi-day weddings, single day weddings, or engagement sessions! Here is a perfect example! After the engagement ceremony which took place at Elaborate Events on the weekend, we headed out around downtown Atlanta for a proper "engagement session" where Serana and Saifur could take more portrait photos before Saifur flew back home after the busy weekend of events! Here are a few of my favorites from a weeknight spent exploring Atlanta at the Rhodes Hall ...
