Khaleda & Mike :: Engagement & Wedding

One of the few times this year where I shot the engagement session and wedding day in the same week. Khaleda & Mike had one of the most unique wedding experiences I've encountered. Khaleda's ethnic background is Afghani. Mike is from Mexico. That said, this wedding was split right down the middle in presenting both heritages. It was magic. WOW. Wedding was at the Bella Montagna

Khaleda, you have a smile that would light up any room. You made a lovely bride. Namikuda ;) From Mariachi to Tabla's to Belly Dancers and Hookah pipes, this wedding had it all. The vision came through guys and in grand style I might add. Congrats again.

First the engagement:


Oh how much I love this.











and then the wedding:








I've never had a details pallet THIS big. Amazing. Decorations were done by Khaleda's sister. My take on the details doesn't do it justice.

Hookah!!! That wedding looks like a lot of fun. That seems really cool having both heritages so prominent in one wedding. Excellent work capturing that!

Sam you are the da Vinci of the photography world. A picture can speak a thousand words and your creation tells it best. You are in the ranks of the legendary photographer’s Irving Penn, Helmut Newton, Terence Donovan, and Richard Avedon. Robert Heinecken said it best “There is a vast difference between taking a picture and making a photograph.” You my friend make the photograph with your creative flair and eye for perfection!
