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!

Flight delays, foggy weather, great food, and sleeping in an airport. All in a day's work, right? First, the flight out of Atlanta was delayed a couple of hours due to fog and upon arriving, I can see why! We headed to the Golden Gate Bridge area first which was almost completely engulfed in a thick layer of fog. We then headed to the nearby Palace of Fine Arts where we were able to spend more time and really glad we did, because our later attempts to go back to the bridge and to Twin Peaks were met with tons and tons of fog even later in the night. Still got some amazing pictures though and had a great time despite Mother Nature getting in o ...

Engagement Shoot with Karla & Paul
The weekend before we left Orlando, Betty had found us a friend of a friend that wanted new photos taken of them even though they had been married for a few years already. Apparently Karla was not satisfied with the way her wedding photos turned out; when her photographer promised her “relaxed and casual” they turned out rather stiff and formal. After our brief introductory chat Betty and I knew our mission: get these two lovebirds to open up and relax! Our first couple of shots were admittedly not the best; Paul had his tie on and had a tough time getting in the mood for photos. This is Central Florida (Winter Park) after all, so 5pm it w ...
