Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible!

Enjoy exploring it.

Sacramento wedding photographer: Aftershoot

It was a little more than a year ago when I photographed Donaji and Ryan’s wedding at the Grand Island Mansion. And it was just about two weeks ago when I saw Donaji & Ryan again on their aftershoot/bridal session. It was so nice seeing them and reliving the memories from their big day. We had a lot of fun running around the park and getting some spectacular shots of this beautiful, down to earth couple. We ended up with the perfect light for the shoot…can never go wrong with the golden light from the setting sun. The weather was also the perfect kind…not so cold, not so warm..grass was turning green…ground dried up after a few days of rainfall. Donaji couldn’t have picked a better time for their shoot. Here are some of my favorites…

Roseville Portrait photographer

I just finished photographing holiday portrait of four beautiful families over last two weekends. First up, the Horton family. Joe, Katarina, Nicolas and Lili are my lovely neighbors who have become very near and dear to my heart. Capturing their family moments is simply an honor for me.

San francisco lifestyle family portraits || The McDermott Family

It was like just another weekend morning for the McDermott family. They woke up early, had their morning coffee. Little Morgan had a Donut waiting for her. She was busy with her favorite book “Good Night San Francisco”. Rayna was a bit anxious, ’cause it was almost time for their long awaited family portrait session at the hotel Union Square. Rayna had a unique concept that needed a little bit of help to bring to life. I was thrilled to have that opprtunity. The idea was to capture morning lifestyle of the McDermott family.

Rayna & David’s little daughter Morgan is only two. She is going through the phase where everything seems super cute . Her smile, her look, her style of reading books, everything…Rayna wanted to document those precious moments in an extra ordinary way.

I had a great time with Rayna, David and Morgan during their shoot. It was a unique concept; it would be a lie if I say I wasn’t nervous myself. I wanted to make Rayna’s ideas real, and give the family a memory of a lifetime. I hope I was able to capture those moments for them.

Mommy asks – “where is your heart, Morgan?”

This was a pure lifestyle shoot. We aimed to captured their life on a weekend morning.

Sacramento Pakistani wedding photographer || Amal & Mohamed

I was ecstatic when Amal contacted me to photograph her Fall wedding in Sacramento. Amal, a Calfironia girl, now settled in the East Coast, met her soul mate Mohamed about three years ago. They knew that “this is it” for them! When I met the couple for the first time I asked what photos were most important to them. Mohamed answered right away, “Whatever she wants!” He made it clear to me that her choices were the most important things for him.

Amal looked insanely gorgeous on her reception day. I have no other words to describe her beauty! Mohamed was equally handsome on traditional groom’s attire. Red and purple jewel tones created a gorgeous setting at the reception hall. Hilton hotel in Sacramento was full of festivities that day. Amal’s father’s toast brought tears to my eyes. Traditinally it’s a big deal for a father to give away his daughter when she marries. Every single heart felt him he read a poem to describe the love and emotion for his daughter Amal.

I was truly delighted to be there. I love the culture, the traditions, the tenderness, the colors, the lives and the love that people share on a wedding like this. I was so excited to have the opportunity to capture the most special memories for Amal and Mohamed. I got to know them better over their wedding weekend. I saw the twinkle in her eyes, I saw him exploding with happiness at the first glimpse of her and I have to say again – seeing a couple so in love is one of the most precious experiences one can ponder. Amal & Mohamed – I wish you a life full of love, excitement and lots of happiness. Many blessings…

Awesome photobooth photos…
