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.

Pakistani Mehendi Ceremony, Sacramento Pakistani wedding photography

Two weeks ago I photographed Amal & Mohamed’s Pakistani Mehendi ceremony in Sacramento. I was super stoked about the event! I can associate quite a bit of my own wedding events with their 3-day nikkah-mehendi-reception saga (more on the couple and the reception coming soon). Any Desi (Pakistani/Indian/Indian sub-continent) wedding is full of colors, music, beautiful decores, great food (of course), lots of families and lots of LOVE. This event was no different and that’s why I loved it sooo much. Amal & Mohamed looked gorgeous in their traditional outfit. There were choreographed dances performed by close friends and families; girls were wearing henna on their hands; bride’s aunts performed traditional wedding songs and played Dholki (a small, drum like instrument). The night ended with more dances by bride and her friends and families.

I will blog about the couple and the reception gala soon. Until then, check out the details from Amal & Mohamed’s Mehendi ceremony.
