She was polite. Soft spoken. Bubbly.
He was hilarious. Outspoken. Respectful.
I thought to myself….Opposites DO Attract.
As she patiently listened to directions, from the corner of my eye I saw him cracking jokes, laughing out loud, dancing in front of the cameras. I smiled and continued to document her beauty while my awesome team made his video.
The fun began when they were put in front of my camera. Together. It was amazing to see how she calmed down into a girly-girl and he couldn’t hold back his wide-smile. Her laugh turned into shy giggles and his naughtiness was turned into charm. It was like a chemistry lab experiment. When two totally different elements put together – like H2O, made a universal symbol of survival. In their case, they both put together in the picture made a symbol of love.
Bubbly, respectful, classic love.
He was careful when holding her hands. She seemed more cautious by his touch. Their eyes spoke a thousand words – all beautiful adjectives – without actually saying them. My heart did a little dance and I smiled through the rest of the night.
That’s how I will always remember them. Both Fatima & Khalid. That’s how I recall their perfect wedding day which was celebrated at Armani Hotel, Dubai. My team & I had utter fun and felt honored to document Fatima & Khalid’s adorable love story.
Dearest Fatima & Khalid,
Thank you again and again for being so wonderfully warm and welcoming to my entire team. We thoroughly enjoyed & laughed so much at your wedding that our cheeks & jaws hurt 😆 May you both cherish the blessings & bounties by the Almighty, together – always & forever, ameen.
