Amaan & Fatima’s Pakistani Wedding Reception

I was recently invited to photograph and document the beautiful reception celebrating the wedding of Amaan and Fatima.  They were married in Chicago in December, and wanted to have a reception in Las Vegas to celebrate their nuptials with their local friends and family.  Sun City Anthem was the perfect setting for this 250+ person gathering, where traditional food was served, passages were recited from the Quran, and Fatima was welcomed into her new family.

Both Amaan and Fatima have busy schedules, Amaan in his third year of medical school, and Fatima in her second year of dental school.  So having the opportunity to meet them, and photograph this milestone moment for them, was a treat.  

After all the guests settled in, Fatima and Amaan made their grand entrance and took their place up on the stage where they met and greeted their guests.

Both Amaan's cousin and father then took the podium to recite passages from the Quran as well as share words of wisdom with the new couple.  

After a short slideshow documenting the Nikkah, the couple then greeted their guests in the traditional Pakistani fashion, meeting them on stage and having photos taken with those attending.

Congratulations Amaan and Fatima!  I wish you many years of happiness together.

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
