Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Concert for Bangladesh

Last Saturday, the Bangladeshi community in the Greater Sacramento area organized a multinational concert to raise funds to help the recent cyclone(Sidr) victims of Bangladesh. A devastating cyclone hit the coastal areas of Bangladesh in November, 07. Thousands of lives were gone, the homes were all smashed to the ground. With no food, no shelter, people were hardly surviving. The entire country lost power, all at once, for the first time in the history of Bangladesh.

Being a Bangladeshi myself and a part of the community here, I attended the concert and helped raising funds. The concert was a great success, we were able to raise thousands of dollars that would directly go towards the victims. Indian, Pakistani, Iranian, Nepalese and US organizations were generous enough to donate big amounts to this cause. We were thankful that we could do this even when we were away from home.

The performers were the memebers of the international communities here. There were performances from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and US. Here are just a few pictures from the concert.

Princess Bride!

Just a week ago I was shooting Jenny and Eric’s wedding with Jeremy Underwood at the Granite Bay Country Club. Thankfully it was a gorgeous day(unlike the usual rainy winter days in the valley), so we were able to get some great outdoor shots.

Jenny was looking like Cinderella and Eric was his perfect prince charming. Really, the bride was looking just like a princess! She had crystal jewels, shiny shoes, white gloves and blood-red roses to add more to her beauty!

Right after the ceremony we headed to the golf course for some nice romantic shots. The sun was going down pretty fast, however, I was able to capture a few nice ones of the couple.

While Jeremy was busy with the family formals, I was getting some fun shots of the bridesmaids. They were looking absolutely hot in their bright red dress.

  • Anonymous: Great Photo of the bride and groom, you must be a professional.

Hawaiian Hula @ the wedding

A week ago I was shooting a wedding with Jeremy Underwood. Bride was Hawaiian, therefore, Hula was a ‘must have’ at the wedding. Bride’s relative put out a beautiful and emotional performance on the dance floor.

Diana weds Andrew

It was my priviledge to shoot Andrew and Diana’s December wedding in Folsom, CA. They were super cute together! I had loads of fun working with them. It was a gloomy day, therefore, most of the photos were shot inside.
