There was something extra special about the way he looked at her.
While I took her solo beauty shots, I noticed his hands were fixing his bhist (traditional black robe for groom) but his eyes were ‘fixated’ on her. His smile was reflecting through his eyes. Proud. Deeply in Love.
Before I met Sarah & Saeed on their engagement day a month ago, I was nervous. Saeed’s aunt hired me for photography & album as a gift to the couple. Although their engagement was my sixth time photographing for their family, I was still nervous. Nervous because the bride wasn’t the one who chose me….
When I met both of them, I was absolutely smitten & loveddddddd them both. Sarah is a super easy-going girl with perfect tiiiiny parentheses-type dimples around her gorgeous smile that can light up the entire room. Saeed, the tall handsome guy has deep eyes which were overflowing with love for Sarah. Their families did a spectacular job at finding & combining these two beautiful souls. Sarah’s heart of gold deserves all the love that Saeed’s heart & eyes hold for her.
I was beyond thrilled when she called me after her engagement to tell me they both want to book me for their wedding. I did my happy dance. Their gorgeous wedding was my seventh event for the Fikri family. They call me their family’s ‘official photographer’. I felt so0o0o0o loved when in the busy ballroom, both sides of the family greeted me with love & respect, several of their cousins waved at me, hugged me, and I got to meet my past brides from their family. I did my happy dance again with camera in my hand. On The Stage!
Sarah looked absolutely stunning and was literally glowing. Saeed seemed extremely excited to finally take his dreamgirl with him. Their wedding day brimmed with anticipation and excitement for two amazing people. Friends and family filled their hearts with overflowing love and joy, making a perfect day even better….
Saeed & Sarah,
Thank you thank you thank you thank you. These words are too small to express my appreciation for both of you. Thank you for your trust & allowing me to document your first day as husband and wife. May Allah continues to bestow his blessings upon you & grants everything you both wish for.
I’m blogging your wedding today as the earth was graced with Sarah’s beautiful presence on April 8th & the heavens must have written her name as Saeed’s soulmate on this day. The world is truly a better place with both of you in it. You guys are the bestest. Truly! I adoo0o0o0o0o0o0ore you both.
