Amna booked me in April from UK, 5 months before her wedding so I’m available on her dates! ^_^ Later we met in August when she came back and we instantly clicked! After Flipping through hundreds of different wedding photojournalist magazines, She told me how she had always imagined her BIG day to be photographed – And chose me.
“My Venue wasn’t decided, my dress wasn’t ordered – but I KNEW the photographer had to be YOU.”
Were her words.
Wait up for the complete blog!
Lucky to be in love.. just could be Ali & Sana’s song, cause they were soo cute together! MA.
When Sana visited me, we were over joyed at the rapid fire round of ideas we would try out for their Casual Shoot. As the shoot was to mark their First Wedding Anniversary celebration, She prepared me to guide her hubby as he’s way camera shy and often finds it very difficult to be photographed. For these images, I asked them to bring some picture frames or albums containing pics of their wedding and the honeymoon. Since it was their first anniversary, I wanted the shoot to give a feel of them reflecting back upon the amazing ONE year, they had spent with each other. I also picked some pink roses and balloons on my way to be used as colorful props!
I was well received by Sana with a warm hug and a welcoming Salam from Ali over his Coffee mug. To make most of the time before sunset, we started the clicking game..
The weather was beautiful & there was a chill in the air, But that didn’t keep them from enjoying the day. I started clicking and to my surprise, their chemistry sparked before my lens and the comfort level I had developed with Sana; had been mutually transfered to Ali too! I was so overwhelmed to be a part of their day.
Sana says, “We can be so different at times!” Guess that’s why they say ”Opposites Attract!” But to me opposites are infact complementaries! <3
Thought would add a behind the scene shot too! 😀 Here I was explaining to Sana & Ali how I would be photographing them and how they are supposed to forget that I’m around. Shot taken by Nabia!
Its such an indescribable warm, fuzzy feeling but makes me love documenting LOVE all the more!
Sneak peak into Farwa & Rohail’s post-Nikkah session.
I once read a quote by Emily Bronte, which went like:
‘I don’t know what souls are made of..but his and mine are the same.’
I think it justifies here.
