After 'I Do'

Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Welcome!

Tahsin & Reid Married! {Santa Clara, Ca}

Tahsin & Reid Married! {Santa Clara, Ca}

As I type this, Tahsin is probably unpacking her bags in their new Chicago apartment.  She and Reid started doing long distance between Chicago and California when he received a great job offer and moved.  With it came tears, confusion, and big decisions to be made no doubt.  They were meant to be together and so very much in love.  Why wait for marriage then?  They immediately got engaged and were married several months later.  They would now be able to be together in Chicago as a married couple and respect their families’ values.  Capturing their wedding was such a gift.  Not only do both come from amazing families, but witnessing the beautiful traditions of a Muslim wedding gave me much insight to that religion and culture.  The brides typically wear a deep cherry red color gown with a veil that covers their head, shoulders and back.  Tahsin entered the ceremony under a veil she wore at the previous night’s festivities held up by family.  She and Reid then sat on the couch with 2 witnesses where Tahsin and Reid were asked if they agreed to marry each other.  It was fascinating as it was not only my first time photographing an Indian wedding, but also my first time attending one.  I never knew what was going to happen next, which made it that much more captivating.

Tahsin looked so beautiful with her henna tattooed on her hands and forearms, which I understand takes 4 hours to complete.  Her gown was hand embroidered with beads and was customized in India just weeks ago.  Reid looked dashing in his ivory brocade suit provided to him by the bride’s family.  They looked so great together!  I just loved the rich jewel tone colors and the wedding cake topper that was a replica of Tahsin and Reid!

Thanks so much for the experience of capturing your wedding day!  I wish you warmth this winter in Chicago and many fun adventures together!
