I met Meli and Andy for the first time during their engagement session a couple of months back, and needless to say I was super excited to photograph their wedding. It was a day filled with love, laughter, and tears of happiness. The wedding took place at Deity Events in Brooklyn NYC, one of my favorite venues to photograph in. Here are a few of my favorites from this beautiful day. Enjoy!

    Meli Garber - Love this! Thanks so much!ReplyCancel

Anjali and Karan are two of the most hard working people I have met, who make everything in life seem so effortless. In the words of her father, “Anjali is an over achiever…she just goes on and on, like the little engine that could”. She has certainly met someone who can compliment that work ethic and dedication to success in Karan.

The beating of the drums and shouting of people started the festivities as Karan and his family made their way to The Westin in Jersey City. The baraat was welcomed outside by Anjali’s family and the couple was reunited to celebrate their wedding ceremony. A speech by Anjali that left many watery eyed and a ceremony that unified both families of Anjali and Karan’s. There was a serenity that was prevalent through the whole day…call it the calm before the storm if you will, because the reception turned out to be an all out party. Thanks to Priya and her amazing team at Premini Events, everything was executed for a flawless celebration!  Here are a few of my favorite images!

Special thanks to Fadi Kheir and Aysha Jalal who were a tremendous help as second and third shooters for this.

    Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island - It was such a wonderful affair!

I had the honor of documenting Rania and Rashad’s engagement celebration last year, engagement session this year and most recently, their wedding. If spending all of this time with them has taught me anything, it’s that these two are the most candid and nonchalant people I’ve met; both being super casual and really not allowing anything to worry them too much on their wedding day. It was my first time experiencing a zaffa: in the Egyptian culture, a group of 6 men usually playing instruments signalling the start of the wedding festivities. This led to a 20 minute non stop, super-packed dance floor at Chateau Briand. It was such a pleasure to get to know Rania and Rashad over the years as well as their family and friends. Here are a few of my favorite images form their wedding. Enjoy!

Special thanks to Aysha and Michelle for their assistance!
